Newcastle United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest comments to emerge on social media from Toon manager Steve Bruce.
This comes after Newcastle news Twitter account @NUFC360 shared a post on its page that contained footage from Bruce’s recent press conference from Sky Sports (via Football Daily) ahead of the club’s Premier League match against Manchester United.
After the club recently released a statement concerning their approach to the recent summer transfer window, Bruce said that he “wanted to try and bring in a couple of players to add to the squad” before asking what he could do about the situation in a rather frustrated fashion.
This post then quickly grabbed the attention of a number of Toon supporters, who were not shy in airing their thoughts and feelings on what Bruce had to say.
So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say in response to Bruce’s comments about the summer transfer window?
“He’s lost the plot. just walk Steve, do us all a favour #NUFC“
“He’s on his way out, surely.”
“He’s rattled, his tenure is close to the end. If we lose vs Leeds the ground will be toxic.”
“He’s just horrendous to watch, isn’t he. He’s smug, arrogant, negative, dour and just plain annoying. Never, ever, ever disliked a manager so much.”
Looking at the replies to this post, it’s clear to see that these Newcastle fans are not too pleased to hear Bruce’s comments about his apparent inability to do anything about the fact that he wasn’t able to sign the players he wanted to on loan during the recent summer transfer window, with some calling for him to leave the club.
Do you think Bruce has been let down by Mike Ashley?
Given how Newcastle only managed to sign Joe Willock on a permanent deal and Santiago Munoz on loan throughout the summer window, it’s easy to see why he may not be particularly pleased with how things panned out as well as the statement about the club’s apparent transfer policy.
In our view, while Bruce may not have the most positive outlook on the matter, we feel he needs to move on and focus on getting the best out of the players he currently has at his disposal if he is to continue at the club.
