Like him or not, one thing’s for sure, he’s under a lot of pressure to get things right as fast as possible. Faster than probably most managers of NUFC have been afforded. I hope he does. Got a lot of work to do based on the second half vs Arsenal.

I don't think he's under any pressure. Any pressure from the crowd is nullified by the fact that Ashley doesn't care what the crowd thinks so he'll gamble to the very end.

I don't see any example of the crowd's will influencing any of Ashley's decisions.

Things won't be difference this time.






The only pressure will come from poor results. That is the same for any manager, certainly was for Rafa when he went on a bad run. He was big enough to take the pressure and cool enough to stick to his methods. That is where I have no faith at all in Bruce as I don't believe he has any real method. He will just chop and change in blind hope like Pardew did, and I expect to see similar results.

Pressure from who? The fans? So what? It's not pressure when it doesn't lead to anything, it's just loud noise at worse. The only pressure fans can exert is by not being there.

Craig Hope absolutely went in on him after 1 match - and will likely do so all season if it continues.

I'm interested to see if these superfans can stick with it when the inevitable happens.

My guess is they'll double down.

BY JAMES HUNTER12:00, 5 JUN 2009UPDATED13:23, 27 FEB 2013

NEW Sunderland boss Steve Bruce insists it was never his dream to manage his boyhood idols Newcastle.

Bruce left his post at Wigan to sign a three-year contract on Wearside this week, admitting that this was the chance he had been waiting his whole managerial career for.

LOL, this just backs up the statement I made in the Ashley thread re the Fifth Estate being dead. This is exactly the sort of thing that should be brought up. Historical reference. But hardly anyone gives a s***. The majority move from soundbyte to soundbyte with next to no memory of what happened before.

He’ll have at least 10 games at least because of last season.

Like it or loath it there’s a large portion of Crumpyesque localite fans that are Bruce > Rafa. This is their dream. They’ve waited three years for this and they’re going to support their man blindly no matter what.

That he has personally purchased Andy Carroll will buy him more time too. Come 16th and he’ll be lauded as a saviour at the end of the season. His only downfall might be not mentioning he’s local enough.

Is it? Because the vibe I got it is that it was a frustrated Newcastle fan... or at least someone sympathetic - it turned from light p*ss taking to just pure rage when Rafa walked.

Why would any Newcastle fan leave a stable Premier League job to go and manage Sunderland?

He wouldn't. Bruce is a mercenary. Managed Villa despite being Birmingham manager for 5 years and burned his bridges there.

The idea of Bruce of some local hero is embarrassing.

I hold it against him in terms of his supposed credentials as a big Newcastle fan.

Not like he even went there to get back in work, he walked out on a mid table Prem team at the time to go there.

Surely Ashley is going to stick with his new mate Brewcie as the SS NUFC sinks into the hopefully terminal depths of the Championship? Surely in hiring the man, Ashley accepts the possibility or even likelihood of relegation?
