Report – Bruce Would Be On Incentive Laden Contract


The Mirror are reporting that Steve Bruce would become the lowest paid manager in the Premier League upon taking the position.

According to the Mirror’s John Richardson, Steve Bruce would be offered an incentive laden contract with a base salary of £1M. His pay, however, could significantly rise if the team would finish around mid-table.

If these terms are correct, then there is little chance Mike Ashley is going to pay the full compensation fee for Bruce.

Mike Ashley runs everything on the cheap and it is becoming very clear that he has no intention of getting in another Rafa Benitez-like manager.

Steve Bruce– pointing the way backwards

If this lasts too much longer, Steve Bruce may just decide to pull the plug. He will be very concerned that his relationship with the Sheffield Wednesday fans will be irreparably damaged.

Yesterday an angry Owl’s fan rushed onto the pitch and confronted Bruce during the preseason friendly at Lincoln City.


Steve risks an untenable future at Hillsborough if this drags on too much longer. That will have to be something he is mulling over right now.

Yesterday after the preseason match, Steve said he had to “take stock of the situation”. He really is in a no-win situation. The best outcome for him would be to come out today and just say he wants to remain with the Owls.

He is just not wanted as the next manager of Newcastle. It doesn’t matter if he is Geordie or not.

The fans were not happy with John Carver when he took over for Alan Pardew.

They want a manager with a good CV and Steve Bruce just doesn’t have one. His salary at Newcastle would reflect that.

Rafa Benitez got six times as much in base pay and was worth much more than that to this club.

Mike Ashley doesn’t see it that way. He got rich by cutting costs and peddling junk. He is running Newcastle United the exact same way.

    By the time the team has appointed a manager, the season will have finished, the reserve managers would have played out the whole season and we would have been relegated.

    But then again what difference will it make with Steve Bruce been about.

    Steve
    Stay away
    You know it makes sense
    Do NOT be lured into Ashley’s dungeon of lies and false promises.

    Speak to Rafa if you need confirmation

    Remember ‘family first’ – their health and sanity and yours needs protection

    You know it’s the right decision
    Do it !

    Looks like Steve Bruce will get the same pay and treatment as pardew. He will basically he our new pardew.

    Why the F are we sitting back and letting this happen. We have to take our club back.

    The bottom line to this fiasco is that Sheffield Wednesday loss is our Relegation. We’ve gone from a World class manager who galvanised not just the club but the whole city as one,To a bloke who was having cabbages thrown at him.

    I can really feel the fans coming together against Ashley this time around, which is great. We all have to pull together and do everything we can to force him out.

    If you haven’t already joined organisations like NUST, then please sign up today. The more people we get to pull together in one direction, the stronger we are and the louder our voice.

    Join in as many protests as you can, wherever you are and get our message across. Mike Ashley must go.

    You could only convince a poor manager, out of his league to become the lowest paid manager.

    Typical, pardew, McLaren etc…

    Rafa has really opened mikes eyes. Becoming a better team will cost more.

    Better players needed, bigger contracts etc.

    Lets go back to having zero ambition with a yes man

    Sunderland spent most of the Premier League season in the relegation zone, but Ki played his part in their recovery, even playing on despite suffering tendonitis in his knee for several months. He played his last match for Sunderland on 10 April.
