Steve Bruce (now unemployed)


Recommended Posts

If he wasn't on 999 games he would be gone already. It's 100% a PR move. Bruce is confusingly widely liked, if not respected outside of most that have experienced him as a manager! 

 

Not giving the press/fans wanting us to fail a chance to stick the knife in over mistreating Bruce > Placating fans who  want Bruce out but are onside with the ownership regardless

Just been watching some of the Overlap on Sky Sports. Scholes claiming he doesn't believe managers should get a payoff for essentially failing at their job but in this case Bruce deserves a massive payoff for the way the fans have treat him [emoji38]

Not as troubling as Lee Lawler's chinstrap, mind. Public menace that guy.

Wonder who said this? 

 

“Without being disrespectful, he’s like a lost puppy waiting to be collected,” the training ground source said of Bruce on Monday.

😂 Some cracking quotes. Has to be one of the players or a coach not named Steve, surely?

Amusing if it is a player, the whole thing about them wanting Bruce out the door because he'll ruin the vibe on Sunday 😂

That is an excellent article and really puts it into perspective just how much has happened this week, and why Bruce hasn’t gone yet. Should make everyone feel better.

I guess the new owners haven’t a clue about running a premiership football team and are defaulting to status quo until they recruit. Understandable if frustrating.

Anyone taking these needs to be super aware that they'll automatically renew on a monthly fee.  Don't get caught out.  Cancel it and look for a link to a discount sub.  They have them all the time.

What is The Athletic? Obv. somekind of newspaper… but you get the question. 

 

Sports focused digital newspaper.  Big in the States for their sports.  Launched in Europe a little while back.  They hired loads of the top writing talents from UK papers and so churn out lots of top quality work.

Good article that, interesting that it says normally Stavely and the rest of the consortium will be in Newcastle 3 days per week but next week will be here all week. Suggests movement on managerial and other fronts next week.

Not sure if its been quoted in any of the online interviews, but Tyne Tees news showed part of the Presser where they asked him if they won on sunday he'd like to shove the result back in some peoples faces, and he said yes he would.

 

Unbelievable, that we sit 19th, 0 wins this season, and he still seems to think the criticism he's received, and calls for his sacking are unjust.

Aye, just checked and it's going to renew at £59.99 for a years sub.  If it's any good I'll cancel before the trial ends and get a discount one.

Tbh I doubt the players will be listening to him at this stage anyway. Every bit of footage I've been suggests that they just get on with their own thing whilst he waddles around on the touchline.
