OPINION

supporters have been through a lot in recent history and 2019 has been a very testing one for them. They have seen Benitez leave St James’ Park, they have seen reported takeover talk come to nothing and they have seen popular players like Salomon Rondon leave. Bruce’s appointment was not exactly well-received by the Toon Army and it would be fair to say that the majority of the fanbase is still firmly against the ex-Sunderland manager. However credit has to be given when it is due and Bruce has done a half-decent job so far. might not be the most entertaining team in the league but they have won away against Tottenham and while also beating Manchester United at Old Trafford. The are currently 15th in the standings and have already played a good number of tough fixtures. Newcastle’s fixture list for the coming weeks does not look too bad except for the clash with Manchester City at the end of this month. Things could be about to get a lot better on Tyneside.
