Newcastle United fans on Twitter have been reacting to the latest behind-the-scenes claim to emerge concerning the Tyneside club.
This comes after Newcastle journalist Lee Ryder shared a post on his official Twitter page that contained an article from The Chronicle who revealed that an “immediate dressing room inquest” took place after the club’s 4-1 defeat against Manchester United at the weekend.
The article also said that the “late defensive lapses” that led to the defeat at Old Trafford were “part of an intense conversation.”
This post from Ryder then quickly grabbed the attention of a number of Toon supporters who were not shy in airing their thoughts on this claim.
So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say in response to this claim from Ryder?
“They have had a lot of these since SB became manager. Unfortunately nothing changes!! “
“Standards should be set pre season not when the season has started. Its just not good enough. If we dont win against Leeds he should go . But i no it wont happen”
“What’s another training session gonna do, all they do during a training session is chase the ball like they do on match day.”
“No 3 days off after a heavy defeat. Bruce has shocked me.”
“Blah blah blah. Fire Bruce now!!”
Looking at the replies to this post, it seems as though these Newcastle fans don’t feel as though the reported dressing room inquest after the Manchester United game will do anything to improve things at the club moving forward.
Do you think Mike Ashley would ever sack Bruce?
Considering how Steve Bruce’s side have only picked up one point from their opening four league games of the season, conceding 12 goals in the process, it’s easy to see why these fans aren’t feeling particularly positive at the moment or have much faith in Bruce being able to turn their fortunes around.
Moving forward, unless Newcastle manage to pick up all three points in their next league game against Leeds United on Friday, who have also had a rather disappointing start to the season by drawing two and losing two of their four games so far, then it could take more than a dressing room inquest for there to be a substantial change in the way things are going at Newcastle.
