This.

 

Why would he look for another job? There's 0 chance of that happening. If he gets another job, he gets no payout.

 

Bruce won't leave until he's sacked or his contact isn't renewed.

 

Look for another job, as in "Get your agent to find you a new club because when the new owners come in the first thing they will do is sack you and get Rafa in".

Spoke to the sister-in-law this morning. About Charnley telling Bruce to get a new job: She would neither confirm nor deny that story, but she was acting very cagey when answering questions about it. Probably better under interrogation than her husband. IMO... possibly true.

 

What she was willing to say is that Ashley is absolutely convinced the Saudis will be our new owners soon (she mentioned that Bruce told the family four weeks) and Ashley has put that in Bruce's ear. Bruce knows his days are numbered when they take over and he doesn't seem particularly bothered by that. He knows a pay-off is coming and at the moment seems more interested in knocking down and rebuilding his house in Manchester (true story).

 

So make of that what you will.

 

Let's hope she's right.

 

Although as much as he's detested, I can't understand why Edwards is continually saying the takeover won't go through if the above is true.

 

He's close enough to Bruce by all accounts to have been given the nod by him if Bruce has information on the takeover and yet is continually shouting down the chances of it happening.

Hate clicks = Ad revenue. 

 

Edwards is an absolute gigacunt, but it appears he isn't daft.

That's my brother off the hook then ha. Sounds pretty much as he told it to me, so feeling much more positive about.

Yeah I took the the phrasing as just common parlance really, as in ' your job won't be here'.

I initially thought that, why would charnley even bother telling Bruce but presumably they are close ish, as Bruce sucks Mikey off a fair bit.

Every bit of evidence on Charnley to date suggests he wouldn't even know.

 

Would not be remotely surprised to find out later that he was just sitting in his office colouring in when Stavely/Rueben/PIF walk in and ask 'Who are you, and what are you doing here?'

I think you'd imagine that Bruce would either keep it close to his chest, or tell his family to keep schtum.
Can't see them being free and open with this kind of information.

This is in the wrong thread.

People let things slip, especially after a few beers. Not saying it went down like that, but if its the same guy I knew then it probably did.

 

btw could see Charnley saying it to Bruce just to make himself feel better about his position if this happens, just to stick the knife in. Even if he doesn’t know for certain just to stir emotions and make him feel shit. Seems the type.

Hasn't he stopped going on as much recently, or maybe it's cos people have stopped posting his garbage.

They might not be the brightest of families, certainly going off Steve...

I find it hard to believe anything I hear that is isn’t official, but I heard 2 weeks ago that the players believe that Bruce is waiting for a pay off so that he can put it into some huge mansion he’s building in the North West as that is all he talks about, which tallies in with that post earlier. So my hopes are now raised!
