Last night Steve Bruce was interviewed on talkSPORT about his new job and what his expectations were for the season.
Bruce, in the time he was on-air, managed to show just how out of touch he was with a lot of Newcastle fans.
The main issue was his dismissal of the planned boycott for the Arsenal game – insisting that the stadium will be full.
In the past, Newcastle’s opening game of the season would not usually get to general sale – suggesting that this time many fans have had enough.
Bruce also dismissed the number of protestors suggesting there will only be “12 or so.”
The former Sunderland manager also claimed he could be the one to end Newcastle’s trophy drought.
If Newcastle were going to win a trophy they would have stood a much better chance doing so with Benitez rather than Bruce.
