From Craig Hope:

 

Meanwhile, head coach Steve Bruce remains in post having met with Amanda Staveley at the training ground on Monday.

However, it was always understood that it would take until at least the middle of the week before removing Bruce ahead of Sunday’s visit of Spurs.

The focus of the new owners remains on the managerial situation, with appointments such as sporting director and chief executive to follow in due course.

Sources have played down the likelihood of Frank Lampard being the man to take charge, although they have also stressed that many options are on the table given the number of voices involved in the process.

When was this "always understood"? Takeover style timescales again. "He will be gone by X day", " he will be gone by y day", "before spurs", "always understood it will be...". Just get the fucker out. 

 

 

Sorry, sorry. I know, but I just really want this fly in the soup gone so I can enjoy my meal properly.

Amanda Staveley, the Newcastle United director, is waiting for the green light from the club’s new Saudi owners before sacking Steve Bruce.

The Times has learnt that all decisions must now be approved by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF), the majority shareholder. Despite it seeming inevitable that Bruce will be leaving the club — with conference calls having taken place to discuss his departure — that go-ahead has not yet been given.

5 wins in 37 games. That's a decision that takes seconds. Hurry the fuck up!!!

Possibly a further part of the problem is at this initial stage without the governance of the club being properly set up is that they need to cover, double cover, and triple cover their backs with any decision making such that it can’t be tied to Saudi state.

 

All it will take is a couple of random mutterings from Bruce about a Saudi Prince and the PL will be straight onto us

 

To think i liked one of his posts last week as well :lol: :lol:

I’ve wondered since reading that PIF have the final decision on everything how this might effect us long term. Say we have a transfer target do they have to compile loads of information on him before saying we can or can’t buy him ? Could mean we miss out on a lot of players ?

You'd imagine the operation will become a lot smoother once a CEO and sporting director are in place.

 

 

 


That’s my hope that the main footballing decisions will be left to the CEO and sporting director assuming we go down that route

You need to calm down a bit man. They’ve been in charge for 5 days…in reality 2-3 working days. Barely have their feet under the desk.

 

I fully expect everything to need signing off at boardroom level…but as far as I’m aware the makeup of the boardroom is not yet complete.

 

You have to remember that Stavely and Mehrdad are the “current” day to day runners of the club…they are being judged by PIF too. So if they don’t perform well / make the correct decisions in the short term, they may be replaced too. There’s a lot of their shoulders to get the early decisions right, and to do that with nothing lined up / no boardroom in place etc, is a risk.

Wasn’t meant to come across as not calm 😂 just a question based on what we have been told/read about how the decisions are being made.

Get him out on the pitch on Sunday for a 1,000th match presentation. Have a little trophy up on a stand to the side. Then when he comes up to have it presented to him, Staveley announces his sacking in front of everyone.

 

Jones to give him a boot up his fat arse as he waddles off the pitch in shame. Then throw the trophy in a flaming bin.

I don´t know if anyone else feels this way but as much as I hate cabbage head I couldn´t give a fuck if it´s him or jones in charge for a couple more games.

 

What I really care about is that they make a good decision when it comes to appointing the manager to take us forward.

 

What´s a couple more weeks after 2 years? Especially if it means they are focusing on bringing in the right man for the job.

It would make sense for a DOF to come in first, also if Bruce goes and the Steve's go with him that leaves next to nobody to train the first team 

There’s academy coaches. Ben whatsisname and the like. 
 

I dunno get Shearer in to do some coaching or summat. Just get this guy tae fuck!

Trophy? It's clearly going to be a golden butter dish.

It’s just spoiling the party on Sunday, that’s it really. If I wasn’t going I wouldn’t be as bothered.
