Fans React Fiercely To Steve Bruce Being Club’s Replacement For Rafa Benitez – What A Joke


Well, it looks like Newcastle are so desperate to appoint a new manager (any manager) and not be embarrassed in China by having two U23 coaches lead the team – that they are willing to pay £5M compensation for Steve Bruce to bring him to Newcastle from the Owls.

How’s that for a poor business deal by Mike Ashley.

What a waste of £5M.

And we warned fans that Lee Charnley likes to appoint a manager he can get along with and doesn’t care much about whether they are good, bad or indifferent.

Steve probably fits the indifferent model.

He’s been fired by lots of clubs including Aston Villa who fired him last October after he had only one win in 9 games – and that was in the Championship.

So he fits the requirements of Mike Ashley – but we’re surprised Ashley is willing to pay out £5M for a below average manager.

It’s four weeks today to the end of the transfer window and unclear whether Ashley wants to buy any players.

It will have been a good window for him if he doesn’t and another one where the club makes a sizable profit.

The only problem with that is that Newcastle are likely to be one of the hot favorites for relegation this season.

Another season fighting relegation?

Where’s the joy in supporting Newcastle under miser Mike Ashley?

The owner must be forced to sell the club and the Premier League and FA should be witness to how Ashley is killing the Newcastle United club.

But they do absolutely nothing!

Who can save us now?

    I’d say it’s logical to suggest that the takeover has fallen through. Likely due to the Ashley side of things. Hard to pinpoint when exactly but now that we’re moving for a new manager all bets are off. Still stuck with Ashley. Absolutely heartbreaking.

    Just look at other clubs that have been seamlessly taken over. We’re absolutely unique in the fact that the talks always break down. It’s obvious who the problem is.

    Get Necwastle fined and forced to play at an empty SJP.

    So Our Toon thinks that if Brucie saves the day Ashley will just sell up, not put us through another tortorous window before Brucie aims for an improvement on his 15th of the year before.

    Unbelievable people saying they will back Bruce and hope he ” does a good job in keeping us up” Talk about lowered expectations. A good job is now keeping us up and some support that….UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!.

    No ones sticking the knife in rafa, I’d rather have him here than not. I also dont think he’s helped us much though by telling the likes of arteta and Vieira to stay away from the job, especially if bruce comes in. I’d rather have any of those 2 over bruce and would have been excited to see a young manager tbf.

    On a side note, I messaged that lad on twitter regarding 2 tops, he hasn’t come back. You had any luck in getting an order in?

    Everybody just calm down FFS, so Steve Bruce is one of the people #nufc are considering. So what? We already knew that. If he gets it, he’s a better manager than many seem to think on here but it is not a done deal yet. He’s just on the shortlist and has been for two weeks.

    He has to sell at some point, more chance of him selling whilst we are in PL, so yes if Bruce keeps us up we can still hope for a sale next season…… unlikely as it may seem. The vitriol is getting worse and he wont keep us much longer as the tide is completely changing and hopefully if the arsenal game is boycotted in big numbers

    If we go down it’s a guarantee he wont sell!!

    A few guys touched on this last night…but why did LC & Co go on a European tour to find a manager if they’d already hand picked Bruce or approached Big Sam?? Something doesnt add up!!

    To the lads saying they’ll support Bruce; how will this help? IMO thats supporting the regime as it is.

    Would there still be boycotts if there was no takeover but Rafa had stayed?
    The media reporting has no clarity, but I’m starting to think there’s not much among the fans either :/

    Right, I can’t take this, I’m gonna watch the cricket. Bruce is our new manager, it’s just a case of waiting for the announcement. He was bottom of my list because I couldn’t see any ex managers coming back. Still can’t. Once bitten etc. Its a joke. He’s deliberately annoying us. Seriously? Steve Bruce? Come on, shows how little they know about football. 12 years, and learnt NOTHING. #Boycott Arsenal ffs. Please. One game to send him a message. This is how it could be if you don’t sell up.

    Cabbage head will get a rough ride from day one.. the club is about to come crumbling down and this could be the moment it happens

    Not one person is happy about this… I have never been an advocate of anything illegal but I think constant large scale pitch invasions!

    Not 1 or 2 people but large scale in the 1000s… Get games abandoned, get Jabba fined!!

    What do you think Rafa should say to a manager that asks for his advice, No comment, yes it’s great there you’ll do your career the world of good or yes take it, accept the 2/3m pounds and smile when they sack you.

    Please explain to me your thinking behind the statement “he is more likely to sell us in the pl”. The PL where Ashley can enjoy some of the highest television payments of any league in the world. Where it has become so lucrative clubs can buy players for the price of a championship club, where he can have his shop advertised to hundreds of millions for free every week?

    That just makes no sense

    I genuinely believe Ashley is going all out to smash the Arsenal boycott ranging from trying to convince the fan’s a buy out is imminent ,removing SD signs at SJP, to flying his chopper here there and everywhere ,even parking it near inbound flights from UAE, changing ownership documents, the signing up of another world class manager imminent. “NOT”

    Fans on here who back Bruce are sniviling little Ashley arse licking p@@@@@
    Steve Bruce is a championship manager at best yes I know next season he will be a championship manager no pun intended but he is your total yes man just perfect for that fat moron
    Fans saying give him a chance will as I have stated before couldn’t care less which league nufc are in as long as they can put there over priced nufc top on Saturday morning get the bus or metro to town meet the other zebra s
    Down the lagers followed by a Greggs pasty
    Watch the match which is secondary to them
    Then back to the pub
    Don’t tell me that’s not true I’ve seen it and when I used to go that’s how it was
    These fans are losers yes they want us to win but for them it’s just being there
    This is why it doesn’t happen anywhere else
    75% Would be up in arms at sjp it’s 25%
    If you had told there losers last year that July 2019 RAFA would be gone and the choice was ex scum manager Bruce 99% Would have been ripping there crappy shirt of there back
    Your kiss arse losers who do fa to help the club
    If it happens and he is appointed I hope nufc are relegated and end up in division one with the scum

    We need co convince the FCB we will indeed ‘ bottom the club out ‘ to force Ashley out of NUFC and hope the fat tw@t see’s sense early, if he doe’s, then we could get away with damage limitation , if he doesn’t then we go through with crombling his NUFC empire.

    Ashley has all but drained the passion out of us and Rafa was rebuilding us!
    Who was the manager who the fan confronted and tore up his ticket under his nose? And the opposite when the fan got in front of KK’s dugout and bent down in praise!!

    Avoided like the plague by promising managers, turned down by strugging-club specialist Big-Head Sam, and with the prospect of Steve Bruce now , to say this summer at Newcastle is depressingly shambolic and awful so far doesn’t even come close.

    Barring an increasingly mirage-like takeover in the next couple of weeks this summer must surely mark a turning point. Even the most loyal/selfish/or indifferent fans must surely say enough is enough.

    If this doesn’t light a fire under the fanbase I can’t imagine anything that ever will. And without that there’ll be 12 more years of Ashley chaos and misery with only the odd relegation thrown in to shake things up. It will be, as it has been, everything a football club should not be.

    Nobody can rationally expect anything else on the basis of the last 12 years of Ashley misrule. He will never change. Things will not get any better. Premiere league survival at the lowest possible cost will be the only club goal.

    Nothing will change unless we make it change. Obviously there is no guarantee of success but doing nothing certainly will guarantee more of the same. What a prospect.
