Newcastle fans react as Charnley reportedly overrules Bruce

Everyone loves saying ‘I told you so’, and for Newcastle fans, it might be one of the only bits of satisfaction they take away from this summer.

The Magpies are yet to make a signing, although Joelinton was pictured at St. James’ Park on Tuesday, they have replaced a Champions League winning manager with Steve Bruce and are no closer to achieving their ultimate goal of getting Mike Ashley out of the club.

But there’s no question the Toon Army called this one right, as Lee Charnley is reportedly pressing ahead with a move for Allan Saint-Maximin, despite the protests of Bruce.

L’Equipe claim the manager is concerned about the winger’s behavioural issues, which is certainly a fair complaint given that OGC Nice have dropped their asking price due to the 22 year-old’s poor work ethic and selfishness.

Last week, The Chronicle reported that Bruce will have some control over transfers and was offended by ‘yes man’ comments, but a poll from fan site The Mag revealed that a whopping 96% of fans do not believe that claim.

Needless to say, the latest reports from France seem to have proven the fans right, and the Twitter reactions down below are lapping it up…
