We conducted a series of online polls last week, gaining thousands of votes from Newcastle fans on social media as we asked hypothetical questions surrounding a potential £300m Saudi-backed takeover at St James’ Park.
The first question looked at the central talking point if any potential takeover were to happen – which is what we should do about Steve Bruce.
The question posed, the poll options and final results are as follows:
1. If the Saudi takeover happens, what would you do with Steve Bruce?
A massive 61% of voters decided that they believe Bruce should be shown the door at the end of the current campaign, with another 21% thinking he should be fired as soon as Staveley & Co walk through the door.
Only 12% of fans feel he should be given the chance to lead our club into its next exciting chapter, which shows that despite surprising the fanbase and having a respectable first season in charge, the overwhelming majority of Toon supporters DO NOT feel as though he is the man to take us to the next level.
What would you have voted for and why?
