Whichever knacker takes over from Bruce whenever that may be then we need to get to work on hounding them out from day 1. All Ashley’s shit appointments and Ashley should be berated until we are free of them all. This pressure on Bruce should have been from day 1, we have wasted 18 months with him by waiting until now. He was always going to be shit and never accepted.

The next man will be another Ashley stooge. All this waffling on in the media and phone ins about Bruce when it’s Ashley the main problem and who all this negative attention and should be on. It’s irrelevant who the manager is until Ashley leaves.

He’s an out of work manager. I could definitely see Ashley going for him and letting the new owners deal with it later. I’d question why he’d come here when he’ll likely have other options

Didn't Wilder fall out with the Saudi owner at Sheff Utd because of a lack of transfer funds? So how is he going to work with Ashley?

He bought Brewster and Ramsdale for over £40m between them. Then came bottom of the league by a mile and the owner wasn’t happy with the performances for the money. I think other targets were suggested at the time but Wilder wanted his own in (and got them) and at the end of the season there was a subsequent falling out between both parties over it all- basically the owner wanted recruitment/purchasing to come via someone who wasn’t Wilder.

Says a lot that I am praying that it’s true that Chris fucking Wilder is being lined up.

Every day that he is being lined up and not here is a day wasted though. Instead of having the players sat in their houses they could be in training with Wilder.

Aye. Having the players in 5 days a week, dropping Shelvey and Bruce not being there might just be enough to scrape the 2 or 3 wins we need. Wilder isn't inspiring but he's nowhere near as shit as the incumbent.

Don't think it affects much to potential new owners. If they will want to bring in their own man replacing any manager is not a huge cost. I'm sure its more annoying being in the champo.

I can’t be arsed to look into this properly but is the Wilder stuff on here and Twitter based on anything or are people just hopeful Bruce is going to get punted?

I don’t like Wilder but would take literally anyone at this point in the season and getting rid of Bruce would give a massive personal lift even if we still went down.

It came from Duncan Castles, seems like pure speculation.

I don’t really care who the new manager would be, to be honest. I can’t think of anyone I’d want less than Bruce right now.

I’d take a punt on some nobody from the National League if we had to. At least there would be a bit of hope and we might leave our own half.

Players aren't playing for him clearly, anyone but Charnley or the relevant authorities at the club recognises that. https://theathletic.com/2468647/2021/03/24/steve-bruce-newcastle-mike-ashley/

He had not sent his side out to be so passive; his instructions had been for his players to press fellow relegation candidates Brighton. Instead, Bruce was shocked by how submissive his team were at the Amex Stadium. He was left questioning himself and his own decisions.

That said do we believe his instruction was to be less passive?

There was a rumour today that it would cost more to sack him than keep him on for the rest of his contract because there is a payoff premium on his contract

How many lads have we got off on international duty?  Wondering if it'll be like the North Koreans at the Olympics and they'll abscond and defect so they don't have to come back and play for this rectangle.

If we stay up his contract is fairly airtight, we go down it’s a different matter. 
 

I don’t believe the rumours today at all. He’s here for the 9 games.

No question whatsoever that some thick as fuck contract clause will mean it’ll cost more to sack him now.

The only way he’s ok the way out is if pressure amps up on him personally to resign.

He’s been in this position at pretty much every club he’s been at. Water off a ducks arse as JFK would say.
