Steve Bruce led Newcastle United to their best start in a Premier League campaign since the 2013-14 season under Alan Pardew.
Although a large number of fans continue to express their displeasure with him, he continues to score and also has the Magpies in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals against Brentford.

A dream move to Arsenal was hampered by ankle ligament damage, shoulder surgery and thigh problems seemed to be the end for Debuchy.
However, he rediscovered his form in France when he played for AS Saint-Etienne, alongside former Elster Remy Cabella.
During his first six months in France, Debuchy almost made it back to the French national team when he was made ready for the 2018 World Cup, despite not having been there since 2015.
Iron Mike certainly shared opinions on Tyneside, but it was impossible to question the efforts he has taken on as management. He currently has Gateshead at the top of the playoffs and is pushing for the National League.

After a good start to his homecoming at his youth club, things turned sour when old age caught up with Coloccini and it seems his legs finally had their last game with the defender, who is set to turn 39 in January.
Santon will be 30 years old in a few weeks and shows how quickly time flies when he arrived on Tyneside as a young 21-year-old.
After returning to Inter Milan, he experienced mixed fates before moving to the capital and signing for Roma, where he still plays today.
However, he almost signed for West Ham United and Sunderland as both steps collapsed due to Santon failing medical care on both occasions.
After countless transfer windows requesting a move and numerous interviews explaining his desire to leave Tyneside, Sissoko moved to Tottenham Hotspur.
The midfielder has been in London for four years and has played 126 games. Under Jose Mourinho he is a regular player because of his strength and ability to hold 90 minutes and give 100%.
He shared his views in Newcastle and did the same with Spurs fans. He offers very little for the future and seems to be drifting through a lot of games but never loses his place so he has to do something right.
A monster of a player who had no limits on the field and always gave everything, regardless of score or opponent. 139 games and a really impressive goal against Arsenal in the famous 4-4 draw.
After coming to Newcastle as a stranger but leaving as a fan favorite and doing everything Newcastle fans ask their players to give 100% every game.
After leaving for Beijing Enterprise in 2017, Tiote played eleven of his twelve games before tragically suffering from cardiac arrest during training that unfortunately cost him his life.

Now back in the Netherlands, he plays for RKC Waalwijk, who is currently 12th. Place in the Eredivise, whereby Anita has only had one appearance so far.
Gouffran seemed to have spent a long time on Tyneside despite some uninspiring seasons. However, he was a key player under Rafa Benitez and was offered a new deal only to turn him down and move to Turkey. It’s been an interesting journey ever since.
He joined Goztepe S.. K. . In 2017, he managed just two goals in 46 games without getting a new deal.
Gouffran moved to Ararat-Armenia in February of this year and won the Armenian Premier League with 13 appearances.
Ararat-Armenia was only founded in 2017 and has won the league two seasons in a row.
A striker who has had some of the bets on since Alan Shearer at Newcastle but always had his eye on his next step in improving his bank balance. This was proven in the previous season when he moved to QPR, who was instead bottom of the table, the Magpies.
Since his loan period ended at Tyneside, Remy has stood out for: Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Las Palmas, Getafe, Lille and now Caykur Rizespor who have only scored 36 goals since the end of the 2013-14 season.
Caykur Rizespor is currently 13. in the Turkish Super Lig after winning just four games this season, a career that could have been much more.
After moving in January, he was never able to restore his form from the 2012/13 season, but 44 goals in 131 games is not a record to get fed up with.
Since leaving in 2016, Cisse has played for Shandong Luneng, Alanyaspor and currently Fenerbache, although he is now 35 years old.
Unfortunately, the most remarkable thing about Cisse’s career after Newcastle is that he was involved in a coach accident at Alanyaspor in 2019, in which teammates Josef Sural and Cisse unfortunately suffered only minor injuries.
On loan in January to help Newcastle fight outside goal in case Remy was out of shape. Did the exact opposite by not scoring a single goal in 12 games and seemed overwhelmed.
De Jong has since won the Eredivise three times, twice the Johan Cruyff Shield and the Europa League, which no one has seen after his appearance in the Premier League.
However, arriving as the Montpellier captain, he has never been one of Pardew’s trusted defenders, having been lost most of the time as a full-back.
One season was enough for the Frenchman, who moved to Roma for one season before returning to France with Lyon. After five years, his contract expired and he is currently a free agent.
Ameobi became something of a journeyman after leaving his youth club in 2014 and opting for Gaziantep BB, Crystal Palace, Bolton Wanderers, Fleetwood Town and Notts County.
He scored 17 goals while at these clubs and is now back in Newcastle as the club’s first loan manager.
Ben Arfa, a wizard on the ball, could do the unthinkable and make it seem effortless with his quick feet and low center of gravity. He has had an indifferent time since he was pushed out the door by Pardew in 2015.
The winger joined Bruce in Hull City in the 2014/15 season before making a free transfer to Nice in 2015. His achievements caught the interest of many top clubs.
In the end, he signed for Paris Saint Germain, where he won the Coupe de France, the Coupe de la Ligue and the Trophee des Champions.
