He will not be fired while Steve Bruce keeps Newcastle United’s head on the water. He has a rolling contract that requires compensatory payments. Mike Ashley is happy while Newcastle is on sale at a Premier League club. May be updated in January.
But as Newcastle continues to run miserably, this situation becomes a little more serious. They have now won seven of the last 37 games in all tournaments. He has scored 37 points in the last 38 league games and full season. If it doesn’t necessarily lead to a particular demotion, it’s close to the worst.
After losing to the wolves on Saturday, Bruce claimed that Newcastle couldn’t get what they deserved. There is something in it. They had a chance to play against the wolves and had to comfortably beat Watford last weekend. But since Bruce was appointed, the criticism from his critics is that the underlying number of Newcastle was worse than their results suggested. That luck is now balanced.
The trust of the majority of supporters is now gone. Player trust is subject to a written leak to the press. Newcastle haven’t won, are at the bottom of the Premier League, haven’t played five of the Big Six, and haven’t played Everton or Brighton. Two amazing successes of the season so far. If this were another club, they would certainly think that international breaks are the best time to make a difference.
