Lots of Newcastle United fans have had their say on Twitter about the coverage that Richard Keys has been getting for his damming words about the club.
The pundit has recently hit back at fans after they allegedly gave him ‘vile abuse’ for paying compliments to Steve Bruce for the job he has been doing at St. James’ Park.
Consequently, former Sky Sports presenter and now beIN Sports presenter Keys went onto congratulate Steve Bruce again once more on his blog, stating that he has proven that not only Rafa Benitez can manage this club, as proven by them being 10 points better off than at this stage last season.
Has Bruce done enough to win you over?
Yes, he's doing a great job
No, he needs to do more
With the Chronicle reporting on the story, many fans were seemingly angry about a number of things. Most notably, both the fact that the outlet are reporting on the story on the whole and of course what Keys actually says within his piece.
Here are some of the responses below…
This man describing anyone as ‘vile’ takes dramatic irony to a completely new level…

I don’t condone any abuse but…he he’s deliberately provocative. His intention is to provoke abuse in order to complain about it. Look at his life, this is not a sane, reasonable, well balanced, decent human being.

@ChronicleNUFC is a joke of a “news” outlet… the amount of attention they give to Richard Keys is ludicrous. No one cares! NO ONE!! stop playing #nufc fans for fools in the name of clicks and likes. Absolutely pathetic.

Why are you quoting this clown, you promised us you would not. I don’t want him on my timeline so why are you reporting this?

Newcastle have now gone three games without a loss and things are looking pretty stable at St. James’ Park. Already on 22 points, Bruce will be hoping that he can keep chipping away and picking up points.
With the club’s next two matches being Burnley and Crystal Palace, they have a good chance of continuing that run.
