Steve Bruce – Whatever’s Best For Newcastle Is OK With Me



There’s a buzz in the ait in Newcastle this morning.

And that buzz can even be felt here in Raleigh, North Carolina as it now looks all but certain that the takeover will go through.

You have to give Amanda Staveley great credit for this, and after Mike Ashey tried to belittle her in early 2018 about her first attempt to buy Newcastle, she has come roaring back and got the job done.

A good lesson for many of us – keep going and never give up, and good things will happen.

That’s certainly true in this case, and Amanda has taken the Newcastle fans out of the wilderness where we been stuck for 13 long and frustrating years.

It will soon be all change at Newcastle after The Sun last night splashed out the news that the takeover had been given the seal of approval by the Premier League.

That’s also consistent with some previous reports in the last few days that the Premier League have found nothing that will block the deal.

You have to feel a little bit for current manager SteveBruce, who is in his dream job, but that looks to come to an end after only one season.

Ms. Staveley is looking for a new manager and new Director of Football, and we have been linked with players galore.

The only difference from last year is those players are top players and not mediocre ones that Mike Ashley agreed to bring in.

As ever, a classy Steve Bruce is upbeat, and he’s said this in the Chronicle today:

“I would love to see it, and I’d love to be part of it’.”

“As far as I am concerned, it is very difficult for me to comment on because I don’t know.”

“I haven’t got any answers.” “All I have done is read about it in the Press.”

“In the meantime as I have said many times – whatever is best for Newcastle United then that’s OK with me.”

“That’s all I want.”

For those few fans criticizing Bruce, remember he wasn’t the problem last summer, although we hardly approved of his hieing.

Mike Ashley has always been the problem.

Steve has done a good job keeping Newcastle above the relegation zone this season, and with the current crop of hard-working and honest players, they will be doing their very best to get more wins on the board once the Premier League starts up again.

And remember we are also in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a tie against Manchester City in front of what will be a sold-out crowd at St. James’ Park.

Howay the Bonnie Lads!!

    There’s something about looking at anything written by The Sun that makes me want to vomit. Despicable ‘news’paper.

    It’s going to be a lot of fun reading the forums/blogs of the top 8 English clubs once this deal goes through. Man City fans will probably be quite welcoming, others not so much. ha.

    If Karma exits, this club is well due after the terms of Dalglish as manager and 13 years of Ashley.

    There’s no doubt we need a bigger manager if we’re going to sign top class player, but pure class from SB. Let’s be fair, he’s done a good job getting us to 13th on the table, he generally talks straight whenever he’s interviewed and he has the best interests of the club at heart. I’ll certainly be buying him a pint if I see him out on the Toon. I hope the fans will give him a good send off – he deserves it.
