Newcastle fans can’t believe Steve Bruce’s verdict on transfer window

Some Newcastle fans are furious with Steve Bruce, after the Magpies boss said his side had a “remarkable” transfer window.

It’s over. The transfer window has slammed shut and we can now stopping checking every day for links to Bas Dost and Thiago Maia.

The Magpies have signed five new players, smashing their transfer record on Joelinton, adding pace and electricity with Allan Saint-Maximin, depth at the full-back position with Jetro Willems and Emil Krafth and finally a welcome homecoming with the return of Andy Carroll.

Still, there is a feeling that the overall ability of the squad didn’t improve much, considering the likes Salomon Rondon, Ayoze Perez and Mo Diame left.

Bruce clearly disagrees with that statement, saying: “Remarkable (the transfer window). I’m delighted. A lot of hard work has gone in. They’ve backed me.”

While the final three words should be music to the ears of any fan base, the infamous Mike Ashley’s decision to back Bruce, and formerly Steve McLaren, but not Rafael Benitez has irked the Toon Army.

They also feel Bruce is only saying what his boss wants him to say, bashing the gaffer for being a “puppet” and a “yes man”.
