Tony Cascarino believes Steve Bruce’s style of football will RELEGATE Newcastle this season.
Bruce was by no means a popular choice with the club’s fan base when he was named Rafa Benitez’s successor back in 2019.

The Magpies finished in the bottom half last season and things do not seem to have progressed from there.
Newcastle are 15th in the Premier League but have not won in six with tough away games against Arsenal and Aston Villa in the next week.
Former Chelsea striker Cascarino believes Bruce needs to stop trying to only grind out draws, as such a negative attitude will take the Magpies back down to the Championship.
“I think there’s massive challenges for Steve,” Cascarino told Saturday’s Weekend Sports Breakfast. “I think he’s in a great position. He doesn’t need the money.

“If you don’t need the money, and you are a manager, you can go: ‘do you know what, I’m going to go and play a way the fans are going to love, the fans are going to enjoy, the team are going to enjoy and we are going to try and win football matches and stop trying to just stay in them’.
“There’s too many managers who think success in football is just grinding out a 1-1 or a 0-0 and it’s a great result.
“Unfortunately, with three points for a win and the way the laws are in the game that type of mindset is relegation.
“It might not happen this year but you are going to get relegated.”
Cascarino also admitted his bafflement at Newcastle’s decision to bring back striker Andy Carroll.

He added: “Andy Carroll, when Newcastle took him I was scratching my head. Not because I don’t like him, because I do, but his goal return is dreadful.
“You have to go back to the 2016/17 season when he got seven goals in one season. After that the most he’s got is three in one season as a centre-forward.”
Some fans have called for Bruce’s sacking following their defeat to bottom side Sheffield United, but he insisted he would not give in.
The Magpies boss said :“[The criticism] has been personal from day one – certain people out there think I shouldn’t have been in the job to start with. All I can do is accept it and try not to be too down with it.”
