The Magpies have managed only one win in their last seven games in all competitions, and find themselves 17th in the Premier League table at the moment.
Steve Bruce’s side are up against West Ham who are going through a rough patch at the moment, having failed to win in their past four Premier League games.
The Magpies have been very disappointing away from home this season, but what must have hurt them the most is their inability to win matches at home.
Bruce, who previously demanded the Newcastle fans to judge him after 10 games, has now said that his side should be judged over the next couple of months with games coming thick and fast during the busy festive period.
Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to express their reaction after Bruce’s latest comments, and the majority of them were not impressed.
I wish he would just stop talking

Bruce came in & said “judge me after 10 games”, after 10 games he says “we will be judged after the next 2 months”. Right there is why people didn’t like him at the start, why they judged him after 10 games &why they won’t like him after the next 2 months. You side stepped that.

A tactically inept coach and an owner with zero vision or interest in the club other than what he can take out of it?

After December it’ll be “ After January is when we will know where we stand – judge me then …” Or some BS like that.

Newcastle will face AFC Bournemouth before the international break. Towards the end, the Magpies will see a trip to Aston Villa and then a home clash with Manchester City before the hectic festive season gets underway.
