United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest claim to emerge concerning Toon manager Steve Bruce and his future at the Tyneside club amidst fans protesting against him. 

This comes after journalist Luke Edwards shared a post on his official Twitter page saying that he had been “reliably informed” that chiefs do not consider Bruce’s role to be under threat, despite a lack of success so far this season.

The Toon are yet to win a Premier League match this term, while they were knocked out of the Carabao Cup on penalties last month.

He wrote: “Reliably informed NUFC do not believe Bruce is under pressure, there is a view performances have deserved more points, the dressing room is united behind him and team is more entertaining to watch than previous years. His job is not under threat and is unlikely to be any time soon.”

This post then quickly caught the attention of a lot of Toon supporters who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on the matter.

So, what did these fans have to say in response to this claim about Bruce from Edwards? 

“What a joke”

@Hamill_CA

“Delusional”

@RSJ1975

“That whole statement is laughable”

@NastyB76

“Relegation here we come”

@thedjr1981

“We may as well start planning for the Championship, then!”

@alwaysyourway

“Unbelievable”

Looking at the replies to this post from Edwards, it’s clear to see that these fans are not pleased to hear the Telegraph journalist’s claim that Bruce’s future at St. James’ Park is not being questioned at this moment in time.

Given how the 60-year-old has managed to lose 41 out of the 95 matches he’s taken charge of with so far, winning 29 and drawing 25 along the way, it’s easy to see why these fans would rather see Bruce leave than have him continue at the club, especially since they have failed to win any of their opening six league games of the season so far.

Do you think Bruce should be sacked?

Yes

Yes

No

No

In our view, if Bruce’s position isn’t in danger despite their poor start to the season, this says to us that the ownership at aren’t too fussed about the results, which is not how a club should be run.
