Steve Bruce (now unemployed)

I’ve calmed down a bit now. A beggy article like that is more like a job application for Bruce by his little mate. He must be close to the door.

 

I expect a notification to pop up tomorrow about his demise. 

Actually wouldn't surprise me if that article has been written with the club's blessing as a bit of PR for him. Not that Edwards needs any excuse obviously.

They've not fallen for the sentimental 1,000th game nonsense have they :lol:

 

Man, that would be so tragic if they have. Watch him fluke a 3-0 result and get kept on till the end of the season ;D

He's going to be fucking mugged off on Sunday by the crowd and, doubtless, as a consequence of a limp, serrendering, performance.


That’s why he needs binning. We don’t need any kind of negativity on Sunday, it’s too big of an occasion to have it spoilt by some useless wanker.

With the public opinion outside of Newcastle and the press eager to stick the knife in at any point, I am sure they want to be as safe, courteous and as respectful as possible with their moves, Bruce included. 

 

They are smart enough to know their every move is being scrutinized and will want to get more people onside than off over time. While we all hope for an therapeutic and brutal booting ceremony the way they it looks like they are doing things is going to leave detractors with no room to moan about treating "World Class" Bruce harshly, before the press are happy forget about him and discard him back into obscurity.

Anyone writing that story but his little bitchboy and my worry may have increased. As it is, it means fuck all. 

 

I still don't want to have to fight the urge to shout for him to get sacked on Sunday though. :(

Going to be gutted if that pie-faced oaf is in the dugout for my first game at SJP in 3 seasons.

 

Mohammad Bin Bruceman. 

Exactly same here. Logical head says it probably doesn't matter long term, but i can't hide the fact i'd feel so underwhelmed by it when i turn up on sunday. It is a once in a generation game of pure optimism, wor flags with an amazing display.... then us all just sat there hating on bruce and telling him to get out.

All this and I just spitefully don't want him to get his 1000th game here :lol:

 

And risk him fluking the win and carrying longer

On the other hand, it could prove that they are their own people, won’t be influenced by outside ‘noise’ and will do what they feel is best in time without being rash and knee jerk. Although, if I’d just spunked over 300m on NUFC, he’d be gone instantly and no fucks would be given about any of it. Either that or they've just found out that Ashley inserted a clause in his contract that if he’s sacked after a takeover he’s entitled to 10% of all future takings from food and drink sold at SJP for life.

If he’s in charge for the Spurs match btw, I genuinely hope we get beat and will be cheering on Spurs, fuck him celebrating a win on his 1000th game, I want him to be miserable for the rest of his life. Him losing his milestone game would be like a win for me. Yes I’m that petty, bitter and full of hate for him!

What has Shearer said to them, the creep. 

 

 

 

 

Has probably put a word in for him to be given an ambassadorial role alongside he and Keegan, due to his Newcastle roots and in honour of his parents of course.

 

I mean ... can you imagine if he remains in any kind of capacity. Wew, really feeling uneasy until they jettison the guy completely :lol:

I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before he gets pedalled, there’ll be many balls up in the air and contractual agreements to review before the trigger is pulled. 
If the sum that’s being quoted (£8m) is accurate than it doesn’t surprise me that it hasn’t been immediate, I’d be trying to find any reason as to reduce that figure regardless of how much money I had.

I keep hearing this nonsense about giving Bruce his 1000th game. Has he got 999 for Newcastle? 999 Premier League games? What are people talking about? He isn't retiring and he'll get it at his next club ffs.

will give you your 1000th game, but you have to walk away with £2m.

I don’t think he’ll manage again tbh, by that I mean I don’t think a club will want him not just because of his record but because the whole of his time at NUFC has tarnished what reputation he had. 
It wouldn’t surprise me if the delay is because he is sticking to his guns and insisting on the full pay off because he knows it’s his last hurrah.

I can’t see them looking into his contract or anything contract related delaying this, managers get sacked all the time sometimes hours after a game, if they want him out they sack him it’s as simple as that.
