Newcastle fans have reacted with disgust to some of manager Steve Bruce’s latest comments regarding the club’s transfer business.
Magpies correspondent for The Athletic, Chris Waugh, shared the quotes in a Twitter thread, which had Bruce responding to a question which asked if there was any more money left ‘in the pot’ for transfers.
Bruce replied: “I think it’s fair to say the club has gone beyond what I thought they could already. We have a full quota of 25 players. But there’s still a lot to play out in the window and we’ve 1 or 2 things bubbling away.”
Newcastle fans were less than happy with the assertion that the club had gone beyond what their manager expected, and made their feelings known online.
Here’s what these Newcastle fans had to say…
“What on earth was he expecting!?”
“Bruce is an absolute embarrassment, we’ve shipped half a dozen players out, and got 1 in and he thinks the club have done all they can?”
Evidently, these fans have been left none too impressed by Bruce’s latest quotes. Newcastle have only signed Willock so far this summer, and most fans seem to be hoping for a little more action before the window closes.
