I think he's been told he's off, like

nah, he wouldnt be so smug.

he'd be more like "I'll take it a game at a time".

none of this "you all got it wrong shit" because if he does get sacked next week they'll all have been proven right - just the wrong time span by a week.

The longer he lingers, the happier I am because that means we are putting real thought and effort into who comes in.

 

If reports of us being rejected by Zidane are true, we are aiming high.

I've never really understood the hatred here if I'm being perfectly honest. I mean, he's a shit manager, but I can't blame him for taking the job after Ashley offered it. For me he's been nowhere near as obnoxious as Pardew who was the personification of everything bad Ashley stood for. Bruce is having us punch below our weight and he needs to be replaced, but I understand and respect that it will take some time and that Bruce and his crew are kept on while that is being sorted out. The only alternative was to make Bruce a sacrificial lamb and give Jones the reigns temporarily, but would that have worked?

 

It won't be long now guys. Here's hoping the wave of optimism will carry the side to beat Spurs at the weekend and on an upward trajectory with a new DoF and manager to look forward to.

He should know better, almost everything he says is provocative. Pardew was just a smug cunt but he owned it

Agree but yes, it would have worked with just Jones imo, Harper and reserve coaches filling in. Keeping Bruce is all PR imo. I don't blame them for that either, even if at the first chance of giving Bruce a mic it has almost blown up in their faces! Hope he is gone Monday.

Meh. Disappointing but understandable, and probably the right decision. If the players know he's a dead man walking they might pull a performance out of their arses.

 

Nothing is going to dampen my satisfaction that Ashley has gone.

Well, I'm with you on Pardew being more obnoxious, I won't ever detest a manager as much as I detested him. For me Bruce is just more pathetic and whiny. What really narks me about both of them is that they are frauds earning a living from being terrible at their jobs, mostly because they are British. 

 

I don't hate Bruce personally, just find it impossible to have even an ounce of respect for him. Hanging on for his payout despite being a multi-millionaire. Take your (our) money and bounce you fat fraud.

Those comments about the journos, man. Pathetic. How many other managers in top level football would behave like that?

Sounds like he's just paying Edwards back for supporting him

It's one thing to be a shit manager.  It's another to be a shit manager and snidely shift blame to others,  Not only that, he bolted from a team to take this job.  He knew (or should have known) what he was getting into.  Even that presser, no, no, no its not about me but then take a pop at the journos for speculating about him.  Based on everything I've observed since he's come here he's shit manager with low character to boot.

Ashley is gone. Steve Bruce might even be a good manager given the right players. Keep the positive support the team. The cancer is gone no negatives anymore


what you on about? He’s had 999 games you daft arse. There is nearly a 1000 games of evidence that he is shit.

Only surprised that if it is his last presser, he didn't manage to shoe horn another dig at Rafa in.

 

 

 

And….BINGO!!

 

“Bruce said he had not contemplated his future since the protracted takeover was announced on October 7th but admitted he had after finishing 12th in the Premier League last season - an improvement on 13th in his first season in charge. 
 

“I thought after matching the previous manager (Rafa Benitez), can I take it forward, can I get any better than this…””

I was all for giving him a dignified send off this morning and supporting the team and the regime, however after his comments today, if we lose now there is only one man to blame and I hope he's gone by the time the Antiques Roadshow comes on.

Lying fat cunt :lol:

 

He won't have believed his eyes that Willock got him to 12th, he was shitting his pants about relegation for most of the season.
