Despite an improved performance in the second-half, in which Miguel Almiron initially levelled at 1-1, fans’ stance of head coach Steve Bruce remains unchanged.

Here’s some of the NUFC post-match reaction on Twitter:

@NUFC360: #BruceOut

@agbnufc_: Second half was better but ultimately we've lost again and this was one of our favourable fixtures. Bruce is going to use the 2nd half performance to act like there is progress.

@OwenBruceball: Don’t let the second half paper over the cracks. Bruce will more than likely use that as an excuse. Get him out and never employ a man like him ever again. Thanks very much.

@nisummers: It's hard being a Newcastle fan right now. I've witnessed two relegations in my lifetime, and fear a third is on the way.

@mckennajoe_: You may aswell get the “Defeat at Goodison Park” tweet ready now #NUFC #BRUCEOUT.

@62SW: Mike Ashley do the right thing and get rid of this clueless manager. #BRUCEOUT

@AlexScott9: A better second half thanks to @asaintmaximin not Bruce. Another loss. He has to go! #BRUCEOUT

@NufcJordy: No win in 11, BRUCE OUT

@Wezmcn: Better second half, but Bruce needs to go.

@Joe_2802: Better but still a loss, I just hope that second half performance hasn’t bought him more time, he’s got to go! #BruceOut
