Richard Keys is something else, isn’t he?
Speaking prior to our 1-1 draw with Wolves on Saturday night, the disgraced former Sky Sports presenter declared, “I don’t know what Newcastle fans want if not Steve Bruce!” in response to the Wor Flags banner calling for the NUFC boss to be sacked.
The Bein Sports host also defended Mike Ashley in all of this, insisting he’s “well within his rights” to back Bruce and “run the club how he sees fit”, as if us fans have are pressuring him into some knee jerk decision.
Watch it for yourselves below, with Keys’ comments suggesting he’s completely forgotten the fact we’ve lost 12 of our last 17 games and are fourth bottom of the Premier League:
