No better time to fire Steve Bruce
A number of Newcastle United fans have taken to social media to call for Steve Bruce to be sacked as manager of the Magpies with the club Tyneside, who have yet to win a league game.
The St. James’ Park side have started their 2021/22 campaign badly, drawing three and losing four of their seven Premier League appearances so far, leaving fans unhappy.
With Newcastle currently sitting in 19th place and pressure mounting on Bruce, a number of fans have called for the Englishman to be sacked as club manager; clubs often use the international break to pull the trigger of an underperforming manager.
Ianmarshall believes the international break gives Newcastle the right opportunity to sack Bruce and bring in a replacement, although he sees no chance of that happening.
ToonArmy is baffled the Newcastle hierarchy failed to unplug the former Manchester United defender despite the Magpies having won just five of their last 37 games.
Yasmin called Bruce an incompetent manager and insisted he was not ashamed to continue in managerial positions when he had a bad record under his belt.
NufcFred insisted Bruce’s luck had run out and he could no longer depend on Allan Saint-Maximin, while Gav McElroy gave the Newcastle boss a dig asking if he was going to Spain for a break after his team’s good start to the season.
Dan Potter pointed out how Watford sacked Xisco Munoz after being dissatisfied with the cohesion of the squad and explained that Bruce would be long gone if similar standards were expected of him at Newcastle.
Bruce will try to silence his critics after the international break when Newcastle host Tottenham Hotspur.
There is no better time to fire a manager than during an international break, give the replacement time to fold, etc. Unfortunately, we know that will not happen. #nufc

A reminder that we only have 5 wins in our last 37 games. FIVE!

I keep thinking why #SteveBruce keep taking jobs when he has such a horrendous record and is clearly incompetent. Then I realize he must be laughing at all the clubs that employ him and have paid him millions. Yet he is shameless. #NUFC #BruceOut

Bruce is just upset by his luck, he can no longer be satisfied with going up to Saint-Maximin and winning matches. #NUFC

I just saw a Jet2 fly over! Brucey in Benidorm for a break after a successful prem start, I wonder? #nufc

@WatfordFC statement on the dismissal of their manager;
“The board believes that recent performance strongly indicates a negative trend at a time when team cohesion is expected to improve visibly.”
Good job, my old Brucey is not held to these standards. He would be long gone. #NUFC
