Some Fans Give Credit To Steve Bruce – But He Deserves More

Fans are still undecided about Steve Bruce.

Bruce has managed over 900 games (907 to be exact 3 at Newcastle) ) and he played 737 games in his playing career as a center-back.

He was at Manchester United from 1987 through 1996 and won 9 trophies under the expert management of Sir Alex Ferguson.

So Bruce has been through the wringer as both a player and a manager and he has vast experience in the game.

We hope that Steve can bring some success to Newcastle this year – finishing in the top ten would be fantastic –  although that could be difficult but not impossible.

This will be his best job ever in football so he will want to make the most of it at his home town club.

But the goal under Mike Ashley this season will again be to (just) avoid relegation, unfortunately.

If we play like we did yesterday we should be able to still be a Premier League club next year at this time.

And wins like yesterday will only help to sell the club to some new (ambitious) owner so we can finally rid the club of the incompetent Mike Ashley.

After yesterday’s fabulous win (yes – we know it’s only one game) we are hoping that Steve will get additional support from the fans.

The support yesterday in London was simply unbelievable from our fans – who are the best in the business – and that will also help sell the club.

Steve Bruce – on the sidelines yesterday – one of his best ever wins?

Here are some comments on Twitter – mainly about Steve’s tough baptism so far at Newcastle – but that result yesterday shows what’s possible.

Certainly, the players seem to be right behind Bruce and the team spirit is still fantastic.

We still have hope!

Just in case we get too upbeat – Scott says this.

Great pass from Christian Atsu for our goal!

The unbelievable work rate from Matt Ritchie.
