Newcastle have made an official approach for Sheffield Wednesday manager Steve Bruce, according to Sky Sports News, but how should fans react?

It’s fair to say that the response to the Bruce links have not been positive in the North East, for a number of reasons.

Mike Ashley has made some odd decisions in the past but hiring a manager who will immediately be met with hostility is a strange decision and we still cannot understand why he’s doing it.
