@RBanerjee23 – “25 points from 25 games, fourth-bottom and just lost 3-1. How is he smiling and joking? He is an awful manager and taking us down. And yet he faces no consequences for doing so. It's stomach-turning.”

@stevewraith – “The smile says it all #BruceOut #nufc

@Magpie24_7 – “This. This sums it all up! Joke of a manager. Thinks this is funny does he? Relegating the club he apparently supports.”
