Does Mike even know where we are in the league? Can he remember who Steve Bruce is? He probably says to Charnley at the start of the season, "Get a couple of new wheelie bins in so the lads can get a bath, go easy on the ink cartridges and for faak sake don't call me unless we're in the bottom three with eight games to go."

Put his managerial stats to one side, tell me one decent thing about Steve Bruce. I can't. Everything about him just makes me hate him. His face, his physique, his accent, his body language, his mannerism (or lack of), his dignity, pride, respect of others, respect of his player, and the club, the way he sends out any message that he is being victimised, I can go on all night.

The fact is, he is manager of Newcastle United Football Club and about to be the first one that started the season but ends it with relegation.

All of those things are perfectly acceptable in your average Joe [he'd be a dick, but if he was a good wingman, you'd tolerate him].It's not acceptable for the man entrusted with running a £350M sporting institution.

Tend to agree, except that reports are that Ashley is very engaged in pushing the sale through. Not sure how that stacks up with putting his asset at such risk through his negligence. As with everything about how he runs NUFC, it makes no sense at all.

I didn’t hate the guy when he took over, I thought he wasn’t good enough for the job but results last season kept the spotlight off him to a degree.

He’s done in less than 12 months what it took Pardew a few years to do, which is bring the hatred levels up to a point where if was breathing standing next to me I’d want to punch him.

Literally every single word, expression, gesture fills me with a rage I can’t describe adequately enough.

I cancelled my season ticket the night he was as announced, I thought it was a disgusting appointment at the time and even then I didn't appreciate quite how bad it would get
I checked out when Rafa checked out.  30 years a season ticket holder.  I have nothing but contempt for the owner and "pretendy" manager.

Absolutely nothing changed from the back end of 18/19 to the front end of 19/20 tbf. You look at this clip below and - were it not for the kit - you wouldn't be able to distinguish the two seasons' teams. Free-flowing, incisive, dangerous football being watched by 52,000 who all paid money to be there. Chalk and chalk.


Glad he's let the shackles off now though, we're all the better for it.

Christ that is so depressing. Unbelievable how much we've regressed under this c***.

Calling them clueless is flattering. They clearly have an agenda. It's evident all over the media. Two newsreaders not knowing that April comes after March? Nobody is that clueless. It's subservience to the narrative. It's the same in the PL. The narrative is that it's highly entertaining and COMPETITIVE.

Bruce fails in every category I can possibly think of but to me the thing he lacks most, in fact the thing he has zero % of is integrity. Some thing which Rafa has in bundles

Makes it up as he goes along, speaks with a ridiculous plummy posh geordie accent, talks utter s*** and contradicts himself all of the time and now is attempting to have us play a high pressing game when he clearly hasn't instilled enough fitness into the players to allow them to do this for more than 45 minutes.

We must be the least fit team in the league.

I don’t subscribe to the notion that supporters are complicit by turning up. They didn’t turn up for Steve Bruce, they turned up because they love the club, even in its current state. Some people can switch it off like a tap but not the majority.

And yes there’s been a few idiots speaking up for him on social media, every single club has them. I guarantee you there’s a small percentage that prefer him over Benitez simply because he’s British. You’re never going to reach those people.

And this includes the media folk too, ex players etc. I guarantee you there’s a union of ex player/managerial hopefuls that just resent the fact that foreign coaches (and players for the most part) are better in every way.

The supporters aren’t the problem. The people running the club are. They can see what’s going on like the rest of us. The only difference is that they don’t care.

Everyone should have known how it was going to pan out as soon as Bruce appeared on the scene. To show up to a game after this muppet was appointed is akin to accepting spousal abuse. Frankly, I feel that Rafa's exit should have been the last straw after our being treated like dog s*** for over a decade by this disgusting Bobby Hill looking robber baron. It certainly was for me. Otherwise, I'd feel like I'm continually engaging in the sunken cost fallacy for my history of supporting the club. I watch sports to be entertained, not to be blindly loyal to this horse s***.

Anyone know any fan who supports Steve Bruce as our manager? I'm struggling to know any.
Your'll find out when fans are allowed back

The sheep will all flood back, they are f***ing idiots. They have no right to be critical of him if they do, they have accepted their lot
That is the correct answer and the reason ashley will continue doing the same process year in year out ,Same with the pundits they lap it up because they know the club will continue ticking over with the fans turning up for the same saga season after season if u want change make it! You wouldn't  pay for company whos product  failed each year so why pay to watch a game?

Even the daft c***s I know who only go to the match for a day on the p*ss hate Bruce, so I don't know where you're all getting this from.

Pardew still had arseholes supporting him until the end. I know this first hand, as I was part of the SackPardew campaign and I was verbally abused in the Percy all day for having the audacity to sit there at a table, hand out leaflets and debate why he was terrible.  :lol:


If he's still here next season (absolutely no chance, in my opinion), my only fear is that we'll see a bump in attendances due to coming out of lockdown and people clamming for live sport.

I’ve concluded that if we plan to go to court in the event of relegation, that for the best outcome of this, Bruce should not be fired.

If we sack Bruce today and get relegated, the PL will tell the courts that objectively speaking our decision to sack Bruce led to us falling into the bottom three, and therefore relegation is Ashley’s fault.

If we sack Bruce when in the bottom three, and the new guy does better but we still go down, we would have inadvertently revealed that we were able to hire a better manager all along and the PL will use point averages to show that it’s Ashley’s fault we got relegated because we should have made the change earlier.

Instead the best route of action is to demonstrate that shortlisted replacements we had confidence to keep us up rejected us.

I’ve never heard anything so daft as a court case for being relegated. Bruce still has 15 months on his contract. You’d assume the club has bought into him managing the club his way for that length of time. Regardless of outcome.

It’s not a court case for relegation, it’s a court case for restraint of trade, of which relegation are measured losses.
