If he wins he will be in there lobbying to stay as he has been there and done that and can stave off relegation now that the fans are behind him and the players with Ashley gone. And so they may as well keep him to see how it goes until the summer.

 

He will be manipulating things in some manner as long as he is here and is why we need to move this man on. It's why I will be finding it very hard to be excited about Sunday and getting a win over Spurs. The situation is a really messy one.

This is exactly it, if we knew 100% there was no chance of him staying past 1 or 2 games it would just bout be palatable, but they might see him as the man to get us to safety while they build other parts of the club.

Ugh. This is totally going to happen, isn't it

Oh yeah I know, long term I have no doubt they’ll get to the correct solution. He’s obviously a dead man walking. Just a shame they didn’t decide to go brutal. 

I don't think they thought they had an alternative. If they planned on him being there it would have been announced earlier this week. I don't know what they were trying to do but they obviously thought leaving alone until they can get an expert in to either take over or guide them. Far better than Ashley leaving Charnley in charge.

There's absolutely zero chance that the consortium stick with Bruce. Stop panicking, he's a glorified interim manager, they're not blind, they're not stupid, his record procedes him, his relationship with fans and press is irreparable, he's bullish, a bully and thick as mince. I hope he does feel like he's got a chance to stay as it will be even more satisfying when they pull the rug.

If our new owners see that daft cunt Bruce as a credible mid-term manager then we might as well just burn the club down to the ground because it would be irrefutable proof that NUFC has been cursed by Beelzebub.

For me personally Sunday was about upporting my team again and wanting them to win, with Bruce in the dugout a large part of me still wants to see him fail and the team to lose. Its a very strange emotion...

 

 

 

I can see that, but for me I'm past that. My lack of caring about Newcastle winning - and sometimes even wanting us to lose - was because we were a nothing club where winning meant nothing. It was much bigger than Bruce. Now we're no longer that club I want us to win, and don't ever want to think like that again.

1000 matches. What an achievement. Just ticking along, winning nothing, no identity, horrendous PL record.
 

But hey he’s at his apparent boyhood club. The one he’s spurned a few times. He managed Sunderland. Did he wake up and check our results before he checked Man United? No way. 
 

Love that got taken over and he’s going to get sacked soon. Big balls on the fella for showing up to a press conference “defiant” and “fiery” and “swinging”. No just came to a press duty having acted a Sad, unprofessional and ungrateful piece of fucking shit. 
 

good riddance to the biggest fraud of them all. Can’t wait to see him go and disappear from football, the absolute shithead. 
 

roll on Sunday, 3 points for our club and hopefully never seeing Bruce manage a match for us again.

Watched his interview or whatever it was supposed to be, it certainly wasn't a pre match press conference. However if you watch it muted and just look at him and his body language, then its obvious, he's broken ,he already knows something, and he appears deeply upset, I think he's genuinely gutted.

A broken man.

 

I think he should call it a day after this, 8m is a fortune, so its not like he needs to continue. 

he should call it a day?

i dont think he'll have a choice.

no premier league or champo club hoping for promotion/play offs is gonna touch him.

u think norwich or watford would have considered him if we'd sacked him a couple of weeks ago.

he is finished in management.

Takes some doing though but.

 

A regular bad manager would have won a handful of manager of the month awards at least in a 1000game career. 

 

It should define the concept "the exception that proves the rule"

The only thing he's been successful at is masquerading as a profession football manager and pulling the wool over people's eyes, usually in the short term. Clearly has a silver tongue and can put on the nice guy act when there's something in it for him. Underneath he's a sanctified narcissist with a victim complex. The fact he's managed 1000 matches is a miracle for all the wrong reasons, a day to be shameful for all those that have entrusted him, not one for celebration. Cannot wait for him to not be our problem anymore.

From the presser: "As far as I’m concerned that’s for politicians to look into and decide on (Saudi human rights)." 

 

God even that's a fucking miserable answer, isn't it? People like him, in his role, are gifted the opportunity to say something meaningful that's far-reaching. But nah, nowt to do with me guv, ask the politicians. Okay, Steve, it's not like it's a critical issue or anything. You have no opinion, sound. Bollocks to using your pedestal to perhaps add to the wider discourse or God forbid discourage that tiny proportion of our fans from acting in a way that makes the whole club look bad, not to mention probably offends some people due to its cultural insensitivity. Nah, just "whadda I know." Champion. It's not like you were obviously going to get asked something along those lines so you might've given it a moment's thought before plonking on that chair. As if you've got anything to lose by offering a reasoned view. 

 

I know, he's a football manager and it's not his job to comment on geopolitics and matters of great sensitivity and hardship in the Middle East. But I'm afraid we've all been thrown into this conversation and therefore we all have a responsibility; and, whether he likes it or not, he's a public figure meaning his words can mean something. 

 

Too busy worrying about unjustifiably taking shots at the local press about his own situation to comprehend something as profound as that, though. Useless dickhead. Typical.
