Tottenham fans savagely aimed chants at Newcastle and Steve Bruce during their 2-3 victory at St James’ Park, as pressure continues to grow on the Magpies boss after his 1000th game as a manager
Tottenham Hotspur fans could be heard mocking Newcastle and their manager Steve Bruce on Sunday afternoon.
The away team left St James’ Park with three points, after a 2-3 victory over the Magpies, in their first game since the Saudi Arabia-led takeover last week.
Callum Wilson had given Newcastle the lead, but Spurs struck back through Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, before an Eric Dier own goal provided a late consolation.
This prompted the travelling fans to start chanting: “No noise from the Saudi boys.”
They also poked fun at Bruce, after his side failed to get a foothold in the game, in what was his 1000th game as a manager.
Spurs fans gleefully started singing: “You’re getting sacked in the morning.”
Pressure continues to mount on the 60-year-old, which plenty of speculation surrounding his future heading into this game.
Many expected the former Wigan, Hull and Sunderland coach to be relieved of his duties prior to the match, but the new owners stuck with him for the visit of Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
If this was one last chance to save his job, the odds now truly look stacked against him.
Since taking the role with his boyhood club in 2019, he has found it hard to win round the fans.

Replacing the popular Rafa Benitez instantly put him on the back foot, with is style of football regularly criticised, despite finishing the last two seasons in 13th and 12th.
The party was in full swing at St James’ Park after an early opener, but things soon mellowed after Spurs turned things around.
The task became even harder after Jonjo Shelvey was sent off in the final ten minutes, following a second yellow card.
A late own goal by Dier provided slight hope for the home fans, but nothing more than that.
