Steve Bruce Speaks Out About Talks With Newcastle Newcastle United

The Sheffield Star has published comments made by Steve Bruce after Sheffield Wednesday’s 3-1 victory over Lincoln City in their opening preseason game.

This is what Steve Bruce has said:

“Speculation is speculation. It’s in the hands of the club.

“For me, at this particular moment, there is nothing really to talk about until the two clubs reach some sort of compromise.

“Look, it has happened so quickly that I have got to take stock of the situation,” he said. “It’s in the hands of both clubs and we will see what develops over the next 24 to 48 hours.”

These are fairly innocuous comments from Bruce but to be expected under the circumstances. The reporting that the the compensation fee is what is holding the process up seems to be accurate from these comments.

It is interesting that he starts off with a reference to speculation and then all but verifies that the reporting has been fairly accurate.

Steve also mentions the word “compromise” so that is verification that both clubs are in fact at an impasse at the moment. He also gives a little bit of an indication that he could change his mind as he states “I have got to take stock of the situation”.

He then goes on to reiterates that it is in the hands of both clubs.

We do hope that Steve comes to the conclusion that it is probably in his best interest to stay at Hillsborough. The fans seem to appreciate him and Sheffield Wednesday were expected to make a big push for promotion this year under him.

The situation on Tyneside is more toxic than it has ever been under Mike Ashley. The fans are completely done with this owner and are now starting the process of actively forcing his relinquishment of the club.

Bruce should stay as far away from it as he can. We do hope he may be wavering a bit as he may not have expected such opposition from Sheffield Wednesday owner Dejphon Chansiri or the absolute fury on Tyneside.

If anything, this extra time will give him an opportunity for some introspection and to hopefully fully comprehend the decision he is about to make.

    I really dont give a flying one now and the folk I have spoken to recently are in accord with me on this issue.
    If the club is sold and someone new has an interest in working with the players and the city, count me in, anything else, I’m done!

    I wonder if Steve has read any of nufc blogs. If so he surely be having second thoughts. If he takes the chalice under the present regime, then I and most fans will despise him. If he came in under a new management in place I would give him the benefit of the doubt if he started doing well. However I am staying away until it changes which may not be in my lifetime which is a very depressing thought.
