Steve Bruce has a message for the Newcastle fans slating him on social media

Steve Bruce has once again hit out at Newcastle supporters, responding the ‘keyboard warriors’ who constantly criticise his decision-making.

In a scathing outburst, the manager insists that he never reads the criticism and think most of it is “nonsense”, but believes the majority of fans are behind him.

It’s not the first time Bruce has hit out at NUFC fans. Earlier this month, he said in an interview that he found it ‘insulting’ that some fans dared to call him ‘lucky’, saying he’d been in the game too long for his tactics to be questioned.

Here’s what he had to say about the ‘keyboard warriors’ in full;

“Everybody’s entitled to their opinion. I don’t often agree with them but I can’t get myself worked up into a frenzy because of the keyboard warriors, that’s for sure.

“I never, ever read [it]. I hear now and again but, as I’ve said, with management, everybody’s got a platform, everybody’s got an opinion – keyboard warriors or whatever you call them.

“Are they the majority of supporters? I doubt it. The job’s difficult enough without having to worry about all that nonsense.’

“The vast majority of people, to be fair, are hugely respectful and behind me – and I genuinely think that.

“In the 15 months, I haven’t had one person who has come up and had a pop or whatever.

“Everybody’s got their opinion on what we have to do and what we have to be, but I’ll just keep plodding away and see what we can achieve.”

I do think that the criticism Bruce gets at times can be harsh, but he should never hit out at the fans that support his team no matter the circumstances.

Fans are entitled to complain – especially when performances aren’t good enough and we look lost.

He’s been a manager for over 20 years, so I do find it strange that he’s finding it so hard when dealing with a bit of backlash.

  2. It’s not just Toon Fan’s responding to the absolute shambles…

    …what about every TV pundit (!?) that are all saying you haven’t a clue

    The guy is a complete Numpty that’s simply not a manager – can’t wait for the New Owners to just look back on what we’ve had to put up with

    We need a breathalyser before every appearance!!

    Kk I think you’ve got it wrong there mate, it’s only the fact Bruce’s mates in the media keep telling us what a wonderful job he’s doing that’s keeping him in a job. They would be apoplectic if he was coaching their teams.

  4. SB is doing his best. He is a Geordie and I’m sure he loves the club. Abuse and name calling just shows the intelligence level of these ‘keyboard warriors’ who may well know what they like but wouldn’t know the first thing about running a team. Get behind him, he’s part of the team.

  8. Hes a joke. The only game plan against Wolves was to play for a draw. It was that obvious. If he says differently then I’m as lost as the players on the pitch. Please resign Steve before 52000 start supporting Sunderland

  9. He should read it. The stats don’t lie! Most shots stopped by keeper, least shots on goal, least amount of possession in Premiership history…
    His team is always set up too deep and too defensive, he had 6 wingers on and promised an attacking strategy against Wolves and what happened, we retreat and defend deep, don’t press and hope for a chance. What type of football us this? He’s a one trick pony, can’t think and adjust during a game and was exactly what the FCB wanted to tow the party line. His players don’t seem to buy into this failing system and he can’t read an appoints set up to counter their strategy!
