Poll On Steve Bruce As Local Journalists Verify Him As Likely Next Manager

Mark Douglas of the Chronicle has tweeted confirmation of earlier reports from the Telegraph that Steve Bruce’s appointment is very close and barring an unexpected turn, very likely.

This is what Mark Douglas has tweeted:

Keith Downie has also reported that colleague Richard Graves has seen Steve Bruce leaving Hillsborough this morning. Sheffield Wednesday staff and players reportedly have the day off today.

It is looking very much like Steve Bruce will be the next manager at Newcastle United. While this is extremely raw right now, we will put out a poll on this potential appointment.

We expect the response to be very much in the negative as this is quite a shock at the moment. We have gone with the question of supporting Steve Bruce rather than being happy with him as the choice.

Would You Support Steve Bruce As The Next Manager Of Newcastle United?

    People talking about supporting the team not the regime are like battered wives and husbands. We aren’t going to make it better, we aren’t going to see them change and suddenly not abuse us. We need to unite and give them no hope of our boycotts every stopping.

    Just what we need
    A manager who celebrated a mackem goal against us

    He will be given 0 games before the crowd will be on his back

    Jabba thinks were just going to forget everything and let him go on asset stripping the club regardless

    Taken from twitter!!
    Why do people keep harping on about boyhood club?
    The guy managed Sunderland. If Newcastle meant that much to him he’d never have gone there.
    Can you imagine Wilder managing #swfc or @BullenFootball the blades? Wouldn’t happen.
    He’s just following ???

    Bruce is doomed before he starts, MA will not strengthen sufficiently, the team will struggle, as it would under any manager.
    Then the sack Bruce flags will be on show.
    We can’t move forward under Ashley, impossible.

    Chopper Watch is our last hope!!


    Left Luton 2 hours after N9895 landed and seems to be taking in the sights.

    It’s over the Cairngorms now and has been for half an hour. Not sure if it might lose signal (as it did this over the last National Park) or if it’s landed.

    If it loops back and lands in Newcastle it’s Boom Sheikh the Toon time!!

    Ashley to Sky reporters ” I don’t get them. I might have made mistakes in the past, but I listened to their complaints about a cockney mafia and employed a Geordie. What more can I do”?
    Sky reporters nod wisely and shrug their shoulders. ” I know Mike, you’re right of course. Ungrateful Geordie basta*ds. How dare they not know their place”?

    I’ll say it again, the choice of manager is irrelevant.

    The only thing that matters to the future of this club is bringing down the regime which hires the manager.

    Until Ashley is gone we could bring in Pep and he wouldn’t get my support. He would still be a sop from the regime to placate the fans.

    We had a vacuum at managerial level which the club had to fill. It looks like they have, but that means nothing.

    We’ll likely go on and sign done players, done of whom will be good. It means nothing.

    We may even break our transfer record, but again it means nothing.

    The only thing which means anything is getting Ashley out.

    after 2-3 thread intervened and only just come back in

    NY Mag

    I can’t help trying to make sense of our situation beyond the most basic as I don’t believe it is straightforward. I have a brain and use it beyond chanting on here.

    There can’t be a poster or reader of this Blog who is a NUFC fan who doesn’t want Ashley gone

    I put forward a notion as the Blog intends which not unexpectedly the cretin who preens himself (as others say “right all along”) can’t get his a head around or try to reason with a genuine poster – another badge of honour to join the others in the bin.

    I await answers from him as to who the shills are and the evidence for his claims and what apart from spouting off ad nauseum heactually is doing to change the ownership.

    I know the answer of course – NOTHING

    Ok we have Bruce as our manager, that in it self, should help to reduce the gate against Arsenal.

    The big test is if the club brings in some fantastic players, will that spur the supporters back to the ground.

    Big test for the supporters of our great club.

    Steve Bruce

    Two home wins since New Year’s Day have tried Wearsiders’ patience but, contrary to Bruce’s theories, many would have taken the odd defeat to Newcastle in their stride had there been signs of progress or a discernible playing pattern emerging. Maybe the core problem was that Bruce never accepted that, sometimes, the devil really is in the detail. Soon after Ahmed Elmohamady arrived from Egypt, Sunderland’s manager was asked if the winger would be observing Ramadan and if so, how the daylight fasting might affect his game.

    The question was met with a blank look. “Is Elmohamady a Coptic Christian rather than a Muslim then?” the questioner persisted. It was an important distinction and the answer should have tripped off Bruce’s tongue, but he clearly did not have a clue.

    Dont care who we buy..
    We are an absolute joke, going from Rafa to Bruce..
    The two monkeys are sitting jerking one another, talking about who they can get in as managers:

    Ashlie: “Donald Duck?.. damn he is cartoon character”..
    Charnlie: “Goofy?.. damn he is also a cartoon character”..
    Ashlie: “How about Daisy Duck?”
    Charnlie: “No, also Cartoon character”.. “but someone called Steve Bruce maybe?”..
    Ashlie: “give it try, as soon a have busted my nut all over you, Lee”

    And so begins the tale of Steve Bruce in the north

    Captain, love the optimism, but the only person being shown around SJP will be Bruce matey. No one in long Arab attire, just a SMB having a laugh with Mikey Boy about ungrateful Toon supporters. God help us, nobody else gives a toss. We’re doomed laddy, dooooomed I say. 🙁

    I am with Hibbit on this. Bruce knows what is happening at NUFC and if he takes the job he is ignoring it.
    He is a fool to believe anything Ashley has said to him. He may get money to spend but that will only happen once and then he will find out what Ashley’s word is worth

    I have to say, I never understood how someone who claimed to be a Newcastle supporter could ever manage the Mackems. I know he’s a manager and a job is a job, but of all the clubs to work for that would be the very single one that you’d have to say no to. It just doesn’t make any sense to me at all. That said, I’d back him and give the bloke a chance.

    It’s going to be awful for him getting what is likely his dream job with an owner who is going to tie his hands behind his back and a section of supporters who won’t let him forget he managed the SMBs.

    Abusing Bruce is not the answer all it does is gives fuel to the tw@s like Keys to say what a load of delusional fans we are. We need to focus on action against the real problem.

    Pitch invasion is a great idea but we need more to do it at a set time and there needs to be more fans than stewards. Attack the disease not a side effect!

    Look it’s been at the same position for around 5 weeks as far as I know. All MA had to do was sign off. There was always a time where it would not be viable. 4 weeks makes sense. That said I believe MA painted himself in a corner by playing games. All on him 100%

    “People know that I am from Newcastle, I was a Newcastle supporter as a boy and it has been regurgitated since I was a 22-year-old playing for Norwich and Gillingham,” said Bruce . “For that obvious reason every time I am linked with them. It’s very flattering as I’m a Geordie but that’s it.

    So when he celebrated the mackems scoring goals agaisnt us it was just him showing us how he was a toon fan ?

    Nobody packing it in is walking away, it’s just that the club is dead and is now Ashley FC, where nothing matters except the advertising. We had something good, a united fan base, a good spine and work ethic in the team built around a local lad, we needed to push on, but alas, none of it matters. This isn’t a sporting institution it’s an advertising tool for a rubbish sports shop.

    See you all later, I’m off to pay some much needed attention to the other things in life.

    For all of the hostility directed at him, even his players were shocked by its fury, Bruce is a Geordie. He would, despite the abuse he receives on his return to the ground where he grew up watching football, still love to manage the club he supported as a boy.

    “He got a lot of stick when he came off the bus,” Hull’s match winner Sone Aluko said. “It was quite funny, I was coming off behind him, but I didn’t want to laugh too much.

    He’s left Sheffield and on his way here. No turning back now, he’s burnt his bridges and will accept whatever he’s offered. Nowt to do with him being a mackem manager, although it doesn’t help, it’s about him being a Geordie and dissing so many other Geordies. We get round to showing solidarity and a Geordie gets Ashley out of a hole. Not good enough. Back him or not, it won’t matter. We’ll go down anyway. Bruce is simply not good enough.
