Steve Bruce (now unemployed)

Have to say I'm very uncomfortable with people saying they "hate" Bruce!   Hate is a very emotive word!!! I dislike him due to the teams results but i certainly don't hate him.  I seem to recall hearing a story where some obscure celebrity was in Dubai having a meal and his card was rejected when trying to pay and Bruce who was also in the same restaurant paid his bill even though they had nevet met before, and also refused to allow repayment, so not the actions of a hateful person by any means !

 

The problem with this story, is firstly that Flintoff then took Bruce out the next night in return, so he was in fact repaid.

 

And secondly, even if he hadn't been repaid, spending a few quid to suck up to a sporting superstar is one thing. But how about, on the other hand, according to a charity allegedly acting as a slum landlord to someone with no money or star status? 

 

That would be pretty despicable behaviour for any human being.

 

But I detest him regardless of the truth of either of those stories. He's a sly hateful liar and an idiot.

I really hope he just gets ignored on Sunday, it’s amazing someone so bang average can get to 1000 games; that’s some effort.

 

We all know he’s gone so let’s make Sunday about the club and the future. My problem with Bruce is that he was a supporter and walked away (he’s also a bit of a snake, man child and out of touch manager etc) there’s something in the water in Manchester. Bruce, Bobby Charlton and to a lesser degree Bryan Robson (but still fairly strongly) gave up on their roots and planted their flag in Manchester. That’s fine but Bruce can’t then become Newcastle manager and reclaim his Geordieness. He stood on the terraces with his dad, he was at the Rangers match, he went to the final, he lived in Daisy Hill. I feel truly sorry for his family who will be there on Sunday.

 

Ignore him and be thankful he’s gone. If he’s there the next home that’s the time I’ll really worry. He’s going to be painful to listen to on Sunday, ignore, ignore, ignore.

Jeff Stelling has mentioned that we have a horrendous fixture list in December against Liverpool, Man U, etc. I did wonder if the owners might be tempted to leave Bruce in charge to get those out of the way but quickly realised that would be suicidal. We could be well adrift at the bottom of the table if he's here for another month.

And actually, just to follow on from that point, it's not just his arrogance and thin skinned delusion, I'm going to come back to the lying point and his sheer contempt for the fans he supposedly represents.

 

Here is one obvious lie.

 

When he managed Sunderland, he claimed that it had never been his dream to manage Newcastle. But when he came here, whilst acting disgracefully towards Shef Wed, the narrative was that he'd be mad to turn down the dream chance to manage his boyhood club.

 

You might think he had to say that when at Sunderland. But whichever way you look at it, he was clearly lying to one whole set of fans or the other.

 

But I think he actually went one further, because it's clear that the real reason he came here was that he'd have been mad to turn down such a compensation package.

 

I have noted that we are described time and again as his "boyhood club". I think we all know that his adult club, where he shifted his allegiances, was Manchester United, his real dream job.

 

I think that repeating "boyhood club" is a snakey way of trying to suck up to Newcastle fans and also create a false narrative for journos to lap up. Whilst he goes out for dinner with Bryan Robson and his Man U mates as a Man U fan after we lose to them, and pining for his life in his big house in the North West, fleecing every other club with lies to pay for it.

See here’s the thing, we all love the club, we support it and want it to be the best it can possibly be. Steve Bruce claims to feel this way too, but the difference between say us if any of us got the chance to be a football manager, if we weren’t up to scratch it would hurt but we’d move aside because it needed to happen.

 

Steve Bruce comes first and love for the club a far second (if even). His ego and settling scores with people for pointing out the obvious seems to be prioritised over actually doing his job, which he’s very limited at achieving success in.

 

I didn’t have any personal animosity towards him when he first took over, I knew he was going to be a poor appointment, we all did, based on his track record.

 

But this dislike, bordering on a hatred has grown steadily over the last 2 years for all the reasons mentioned above.

 

He set his stall and then when it backfires on him he plays the victim card, it’s a detestable trait.

I don’t blame Bruce for not walking, he’s £8million reasons not to , none of them walk. In the PL .

 

why twist about it? Just wish he’d choke on a kebab [emoji38]

With Man Utd losing again today, maybe not sacking Bruce will turn out to be a master stroke, when Man U sack OGS, and then come in for Bacon boy.

 

:naughty:

I wonder how many experts will suggest Steve Bruce for the Man U job ? ...seeing what a wonderful job he has done here.

See the look on their faces when the (clearly deranged) caller suggested Bruce at Man U? Same cunts who have shouted from the rafters how good he is for the last 2 years. 

 

Sly as a box of monkeys, the pair of them.

Shows how thick some of this plastic Man Utd supporters are. Nearly as bad as the one on here.

Bruce going to Man Utd. Would be glorious. He would legit relegate them.

we're fighting a media backlash already due to the saudi links, but this guy is too thick to understand we need as much positivity and humilty as possible.

 

I hope someone asks him tomorrow if he regrets saying he hopes the journalists covering the club get a slap off their bosses.

Making a sly comment about violence to journalists isn't a good luck and just shows how fucking dense that fat cunts head is.

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.

Win, lose or draw, he'll be using his post match interview to sell himself to prospective employers.

I am honestly worried that the fat cabbage is going to have a heart attack in the dugout today, the pressure of the whole match, fans against him etc and his horrendous physical condition has me worried. Obviously I don't want to see the bloke die just fuck off somewhere, imagine the PFM martar he would become if he did go pop, we would never hear the end of it and it would all be the nasty fans fault.

Imagine the world where Bruce is coaching Ronaldo. 

Imagine the body fat percentage comparison… I bet Ronaldo has never touched bacon or Lurpak in his life.

Steve Bruce has been the "fall guy" at Newcastle and it has been "really tough to watch" the criticism directed at him, says his son Alex Bruce.

 

Doesn't think his dad's capability should ever be questioned cos he's done 999 games.  Woe is the Bruce family.
