It was a difference over which coaches/staff he could bring in. If he wants a PL job then he'll likely have to move north of the Watford Gap. Don't think he'll want to perennially be managing clubs on the south coast or London, even still, which ones would look at him. 


I bet he’d crawl over broken glass to work with the three Steves then.

Shearer is a Bruce apologist, and I don't remember him being too glowing about Rafa either when he was here. Not really interested in his views as a pundit tbh, he's a bore. 


Watched Shearer, The fat twat who's name I am now no longer prepared to mention & one of the other Steves sat in the glass bubble on entrance to Dabbawal Jesmond few weeks ago, laughing & joking as if to show everyone they either didn't give a fuck about what anyone thinks or theyre just so removed from the unwashed masses & the depth of feeling enveloping the entire club, either way was sickening having to walk past the imbeciles twice

Should just give Jones the opportunity.

 

He's part of this shit set up, and has failed at his only stint management. Nah, if Bruce goes all of them have to go imo. Wouldn't be annoyed at him and Simon Smith being the only ones staying on though as coaches.

A person close to one of the first team players at NUFC told me some weeks ago that Bruce had lost the dressing room back in March. The same person told me this morning that the situation is unchanged. The players don’t like him and they can’t see how he could be in charge for another season. They think he’s tactically clueless.


Been told this is still the situation.

Would love to see Bruce resign and go on a rant. He knows the fans didn’t want him and he’s now being shafted by the club, I fear for his health. It was only a matter of time before it all unravelled, the only downside is that we’re going down and there’s no prospect of Ashley selling the club. We’re in a complete no win position, we actually need to avoid relegation and keep the corpse that is the club on life support. Ashley deserves the club to be relegated but I’d fear for us this time around.

Imagine making it as a professional top flight footballer but then having to sit in a dressing room taking instructions from that obese putty faced clueless cunt 

 

 

 

 

Imagine being in Ferguson's dressing room for that many seasons and not picking up a single fucking idea on tactics

He’s not alone, like.  All of his former players that worked under him for a significant amount of time are shite managers.

I hope we get pasted off Leeds. Hopefully the crowd will be more aggressive and well-oiled given the evening kick off & it really turns the screw on him. Would love to see another angry, out of control presser

For a man who repeatedly claims to have a ‘thick skin’, ‘accepts criticism’ and insists ‘everyone is entitled to their opinion’, Steve Bruce’s behaviour continues to support none of those assertions.

 

On Saturday, following Newcastle’s 4-1 defeat at Old Trafford, he blamed the local newspaper for supporters’ calls for him to go.

 

Bruce refused to answer a fair question as to whether he had been on holiday during the international break. We understand he spent four nights in Portugal.

 

‘Do you think I really have to answer that to you?’ he said. ‘That's what the fans are asking, are they? We've trained all week and we were in every day. Preparation was meticulous.

 

‘To have to answer questions like that is typical of the question I would get off you and your newspaper. That's why they (fans) are the way they are, the way you are and your negativity and your newspaper.’

 

Bruce is his own worst enemy at times. Supporters had wanted to know why, after one point from nine and a League Cup exit, the manager saw fit to take a break. But if going on holiday is no big deal, then say so, don’t take aim for the press and your own fans.

 

It caused an immediate backlash - the local paper called his conduct 'risible' - and Friday’s visit of Leeds is at risk of turning toxic given the growing strength of feeling against the head coach.

 

Supporters are well aware of Bruce banning journalists and the club handpicking those who are allowed to ask questions of him, and he prickles when the subjects of tactics and selection are broached.

 

But he is badly mistaken if he genuinely believes the reason for poor performances and supporter unrest is the media. He needs to look far closer to home in that regard.

If Leeds turn us over at home on Friday the pressure will be immense, which would be exactly what he deserves.

 

Therefore, I would not be at all surprised if we pull out a fluke result.

He's staggeringly thick, like. Totally created this mess himself, for no good reason either. He decided ages ago that he hates Ryder and he let his pre-loaded frustration at the guy get the better of him in the presser. I doubt even he believes that illogical shite he came out with about the fans being negative because of the fucking Chronicle. He just doesn't think a great deal before he speaks, and now he's fucked himself and will have to carry those ridiculous comments because he can't unmake them.

 

There's really not an awful lot knocking around in that melty bonce of his. Glad the Chronicle aren't pussy-footing around it.
