Three Newcastle United players unhappy with Steve Bruce and recent performances

Newcastle United journalist Liam Kennedy has spoken out about the rumour that numerous Newcastle players are unhappy at the club following recent performances.


He commented on the situation at Newcastle during an appearance on NUFC Matters, where he and Steve Wraith spoke about the main talking points of Steve Bruce's team.


Wraith recently tweeted that there were several "rumours of an unhappy dressing room" at Newcastle, and Kennedy confirmed these rumours, saying that Isaac Hayden, Jamaal Lascelles and Allan Saint-Maximin are all unhappy with the situation at St James' Park.


Kennedy said "We've all heard the rumours, any Newcastle fan worth their salt has heard the rumours; the Lascelleses, the Haydens, Saint-Maximins [are] slightly unhappy with the way things have been going."


He added "Look, it wouldn't shock me if it was a really unhappy camp."


Newcastle have only won one of their last five games, and it will come as no surprise as to why several players are unhappy at the club, especially with the seemingly lacklustre performances that the team has been putting out.


Hayden is being seen as the unhappiest out of the three, with the Englishman recently having a dispute over his contract, before signing a new contract that will expire in 2026.


Bruce's style of football has been heavily criticised in the past, and his future at Newcatle was in doubt before the proposed club takeover fell through in the summer.


His future is once again in doubt, with the club sitting in 15th place and being on a downwards spiral after a relatively good start to the season.
