And it’s fair to say Magpies’ fans are far from happy…

@MarcSDuffy – “He’s either too stubborn or not wise enough to realise this shape and lineup (bar one) failed badly in the first half hour against Leeds – another interview today where he claimed to want to be ‘further up the pitch’ – rubbish.”

@JosephPBrenner5 – “Another 5 at the back masterclass from Bruce today then, it'll be a good win for Everton this.”

@aarongre23 – “Steve Bruce will put out the exact same team week after week and not even slightly change his tactics and expect results, he’s a dinosaur that doesn’t deserve to be anywhere near the PL.”

@TK81934446 – “Hendrick. Again man. Does he not learn?????”

@m_atty90 – “Nice comfortable Everton win incoming must be the least mobile CM pairing in the world this.”
