'If ignorance is bliss, Steve Bruce is in heaven' – Newcastle United fans express the 'torture' of watching the Magpies

It was bad, but not quite as bad as it could of been against Manchester City – here’s how #NUFC on Twitter reacted to the 2-0 loss at the Etihad.

@Garwain – “I used to care, I used to look forward to match days, I had a season ticket for 18 years, I’ve seen some bad players come & go and some awful managers but Bruce is the worst of the lot. I literally don’t care anymore, I won’t be back, I can’t justify ineptness like this.”

@nufchowza1892 – “Torture watching us, isn’t it? I’d take it on the chin usually against a team like City if it wasn’t every week against every opponent.”

@marcusshearer1 – “If ignorance is bliss, Steve Bruce is in heaven."

@joshhutch135 – “What a painful watch. City were never out of 1st gear. Poor @KarlDarlow having to, yet again, stop us from being completely embarrassed. Something needs to change soon. The lads look absolutely lifeless.”
