TalkSPORT’s Danny Mills dared Toon fans to call into the show following our 2-1 defeat to Leeds to announce their support for Steve Bruce.
The former Leeds player was on commentary for the station to watch our loss against the newly promoted side and has questioned whether our fanbase ‘really want him to be sacked’ after our improved second half performance.
Mills also called Newcastle fans ‘mad’ for wanting under-fire Bruce sacked, citing the players’ effort last night as a key reason why he should be kept in the job.
Here is what he said following the defeat:
Mills is right in saying we were improved but it’s not hard to play the best you have in weeks when you have been on a run like we have!
At the end of the day we still lost the game. Had we won convincingly tonight he would have had a fair argument to say that we have turned a corner, but another loss where we defended poorly for the winner is hardly a reason to call into a national radio station and declare our love for Bruce.
Things were better, but we are still without a win in 11 games and in the midst of a relegation battle this season.
Have the standards really dropped that low that an ‘improved display’ in a defeat to a newly promoted side saves your job!?
