Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce will have plenty time to correct a poor start to the season.
The Magpies are currently in the relegation area after five games. They have only picked up two points but have not won a single game.
Bruce is feeling under pressure after he failed to convince his fans last year despite finishing 12th, which is a respectable result considering the club’s low investment.
Bruce’s brand of football is now popular at St James’ Park, and this start to this season has not helpef him, despite once again being hamstrung on the investment front.
Mike Ashley did fund a huge-money deal with Joe Willock, but no more signings were done.
And it is, perhaps, for that reason why Bruce is not going to be given a short line to start the season.
As reported by the Chronicle, Bruce will get more than just a game or two to turn things around.
In fact, it is claimed that Bruce will only be sacked if the Magpies are ‘cut adrift’ in the relegation zone heading into the winter period.
Although this will be difficult news to Newcastle United fans, it is clear that there is a long road ahead.
