The scale of the task facing Newcastle United's new head coach Steve Bruce was brutally laid bare as the team were thrashed 4-0 by Premier League rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers in China Wednesday.Newcastle have risked stoking the anger of their frustrated fans by hiring former Sunderland boss Bruce, who has sealed a three-year contract to succeed the hugely popular Rafael Benitez.Bruce might be a local boy, but his two-year spell as coach of Newcastle's fierce rivals Sunderland and a mediocre record as a Premier League manager are major black marks for an already infuriated fan base.The transfer window closes in less than a month, adding to the pressure on Bruce and Ashley as they try to win over disillusioned fans.
