And it's fair to say Steve Bruce’s tactics have not gone down well with the NUFC faithful...

@Alexanderlarter – “Dear Mike Ashley, Alan Curbishley is better than this rubbish. Yours sincerely, NUFC fans.”

@GoogsssssPops – “Bruce out, should never have been anywhere near Newcastle United, never, EVER. Clueless.”

@MKell07 – “We don’t create chances, we concede the most chances, we don’t have a game plan, we don’t press at all, we cant string 4 passes together...we can’t pass to Wilsons feet. Absolutely no hope with Bruce in charge. In my opinion, we didn’t play well against awful Burnley team.”

@geordieindavao – “I know most want rid of Bruce, but who’ll replace him? No one worth their salt will want the job. What’s the point changing a championship manager who the players love, with a championship manager who the players may not love. We are stuck with him while Ashley is here.”
