It doesn’t look like Steve Bruce will be leaving Newcastle United anytime soon.
This is according to The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards, with him claiming this morning that ‘multiple sources’ at the club have insisted the 60-year-old will ‘continue to be backed’ by Mike Ashley.
Edwards states that Bruce’s job is NOT under any threat in the ‘short to medium term’, despite the fact we’ve started the season with one point in four games – conceding TWELVE goals in the process – and have already been knocked out of the Carabao Cup.
Here’s what the North-East reporter, believed to be close to Steve Bruce, has said in a grim Monday morning update:
This is yet another middle finger to Newcastle fans from Mike Ashley.
Not only did he fail to deliver the signings needed on deadline day, he now plans to back a man who has us hurtling towards relegation if things don’t change.
Fans have made there thoughts clear in recent months, calling for ‘Bruce Out’ on multiple occasions mid-game, however it’s been his acts of idiocy off the pitch that have been just as unimpressive as his approach to management on it in recent weeks.
Examples include him blaming The Chronicle as the reason us fans are so negative and bizarrely stating we ‘didn’t lose on the night’ moments after we were knocked out of the League Cup by Burnley…
He needs to go and we won’t stop reminding Mike Ashley of that. He may not be listening right now, be we are a sinking ship that’s going down fast with Steve Bruce in charge.
His luck has run out and, based on his comments over the weekend, he’s lost the plot.
