Today’s back pages: Newcastle at ‘wor’ as Toon fans want #BruceOut

A round up of the sport headlines from UK newspapers on 18 July

Steve Bruce has only spent one day as Newcastle United’s new manager but already it’s turning into a nightmare. 

Newcastle fans have protested Bruce’s arrival and according to the Daily Express and The Sun it’s turning into a “wor” zone on Tyneside. 

The Toon lost 4-0 in a pre-season friendly match yesterday against Wolves in China and Bruce’s former club Sheffield Wednesday are considering legal action following Newcastle’s appointment of the 58-year-old.

Newcastle supporters are raging about the ex-Sunderland boss getting the top job at St James’ Park.

The Daily Mirror reports that the #BruceOut hashtag was trending on Twitter within hours of his appointment.
