Sutton takes aim at Newcastle fans: Regrets?

Premier League title winner Chris Sutton has taken aim at Newcastle United fans.

Sutton believes Toon fans will be having regrets over the way they treated manager Steve Bruce earlier this season.

Speaking on BBC 5 Live, he said: “It was always going to be easier to judge Steve Bruce after 15, 18 games and that is more of a reasonable barometer. But not single figure games, come on. He deserves more respect than that.

“Joelinton is a bit of a head-scratcher at times and he needs him to click, but they are improving gradually. They have back-to-back wins now and it is just about grinding it on, churning it out.

“You can see there is an organisation about them and what I can't work out is what is the expectation from Newcastle supporters this season?

“What do they want? Is staying up sufficient? Probably not for Newcastle, they maybe want a little more than that which maybe a little bit harsh."
