Newcastle followers are up in arms at Steve Bruce’s angle
If things aren’t going well for you, nothing really seems to be right and that is absolutely true for Newcastle United at the moment.
Since Mike Ashley didn’t sell the magpies to a Saudi Arabian consortium, things have been steadily downhill.
The team are on their knees at the moment and despite a good win at Everton, they could still get caught up in a relegation battle if the teams under them can put together a decent run.
The transfer window was seen as an opportunity for Newcastle to bring in some players who would re-ignite the dressing room and get the team back to play.
However, situations beyond their control resulted in only Joe Willock joining Arsenal.
That hasn’t stopped the club from selling DeAndre Yedlin, but Steve Bruce’s comment on his replacement has not found favor with the club’s fans.
Chronicle journalist Ciaran Kelly tweeted the following message:
Christian Atsu will take DeAndre Yedlin’s place in # nufc’s 25-man squad.
“Well, there’s only him or Henri Saivet to choose from, so it was pretty easy,” said Steve Bruce.

That provoked an angry outcry from the Toon Army and while it doesn’t make Bruce’s tenure untenable, it could certainly make his life uncomfortable.
Wow how disrespectful.

Words from a great leader and motivator leading them into battle !! What have we done to deserve this man as a manager !!

Abyssal utterance from such a hopeless manager I’ve seen on #NUFC for nearly five decades

This is one of the least professional statements a manager has made. How can you say that about a player in your club ?! ?
