Steve Bruce Almost Certain To Remain As Newcastle Manager – He Needs Support From Fans

Newcastle manager Steve Bruce is almost certain to remain as the manager of the club for next season.

It turns out that the Amanda Staveley consortium were going to give him a chance to stay at the reigns and move Newcastle forward next season.

Steve would have been given some significant transfer funds this summer to bring in a few top players to significantly strengthen the side,

And now with the consortium failing to buy Newcastle after a four month wait on the Premier League, we are back to square one.

And this transfer window will be all about how Steve Bruce, with minimal funds available from Mike Ashley, can strengthen the side.

The news is that he was going to be given £70M in cash to buy new players, but the pandemic has halved that amount to a low £35M.

Plus, he can spend whatever money Steve (shown above with friend Alan Shearer) can bring in from selling some players.

And it seems that Bruce will try to use season-long loans to try to improve the side since that’s the cheapest way forward for Newcastle.

Mike Ashley never liked to spend Newcastle’s money and this summer will be no different, so he would support that direction taken by the manager.

But there’s still a good chance to bring in a couple of players permanently before the transfer window ends, but probably our main improvements will come from loan players coming to the club.

It would also be a good time to support Steve Bruce, who has handled himself so well this last season when he’s been in danger of losing his job if the new consortium had got the go-ahead from the Premier League.

Even if a new owner comes in they are likely to stick with Bruce for the coming season.

    We’re living in a simulation. I’ve never been more certain of it.

    Someone needs to update the NUFC software. It’s faulty.

    Re-post from earlier:

    For what its worth, this is my view on the takeover and the premier league:

    Deal agreed and paper work submitted to premier league.

    Premier league don’t want to give go ahead to takeover because it involves a county (Saudi Arabia) that has has an obvious role in piracy of the EPL.

    Also, it will cause issues with a current rights holder – BeIN and Qatar.

    However, EPL can’t reject takeover because they can’t prove a direct link between PIF, KSA and piracy.

    Therefore, the EPL finds ways to avoid making a decision that they don’t want to make i.e. approve the takeover.

    They wait until the consortium of PCP, PIF and Reuben brothers lose patience, withdraw bid and the EPL can hide behind we tried our best but the consortium couldn’t answer our questions to our satisfaction.

    The poor players. The ones who would be made better with improved players around them. The ones who go to training every day to genuinely improve for the love of the game. The ones who would have grafted to prove themselves on a new world stage. The ones who we’re proud to see in a black and white jersey.

    I genuinely feel for them while they bask in the warmth of the Spanish sun with their supermodel wives.

    OK, last sentence a bit tongue-in-cheek, but I am gutted for the players. Not much said on their behalf lately.

    Out of all this if the least we do is show the corruption in the league and how incompetent they actually are. That will do for me.

    Some newish info in a story written in early hours this morning after conversations last night.

    PL not sent official news of Saudi pull out… yet

    MA remains willing seller to consortium & would likely forgo 2nd deposit

    Jim White claims Amanda Staveley has just text him saying “That is great news” in response to
    ‘s statement on the takeover saga.

    Appreciate hearing Jim White’s name immediately makes me think FFS, but there is too much noise still floating around here to suggest it is gone 100%.

    Patience, take a few days off, and lets just see what comes in the next few days.

    The elephant in the room is middle east politics
    not only Qatar and KSA being at loggerheads
    I don’t mean to be contentious but it’s interesting
    that the 2 objecting clubs are LPool and Sperz
    both of whom have strong Jewish/Israeli connections
    (as does Chelsea)
    John Henry is the only gentile on the board of Fenway
    and we know what Spurs fans call themselves.

    The Premier League are yet to be officially informed of the Saudi-led consortium’s intention to withdraw from the purchase of Newcastle United – and the deal effectively remains on the table of Mike Ashley. [Shields Gazette] #NUFC

    There must be a solution around this.

    May be PiF funds a company or individual and that company or individual is put forward for the O+D test.

    If Mandy is telling the truth, and the piracy etc isnt an issue and its only the PL wanting KSA listed as a director, then there are plenty of ways to get around it and to structure it differently.

    While I love the optimism guys – I really do and I admire you for it – I cannot help but feel the statement put out yesterday and Amanda’s interview shows there is no way of this moving forward.

    IF, and it’s a HUGE IF, this is to go forward it will mean MA has said to Amanda “look, I’ll keep it ticking over for you, hell, I’ll even sell you a share, make you a silent partner to show good faith, but you need to either get PIF to apply pressure, clean house or, I’m going to have to look for another buyer.”

    The sad thing is I hate what MA has done to our great club -and also to us fans as a community, we bicker amongst ourselves rather than celebrate and it’s heartbraking – but in this instance, I actually think he’s tried to do the right thing by him and the club.

    We allknow mastersis a smug, smarmy egomaniac bit does he really want to be known as the man who blew Arab millions for not only NUFC but the PL in the middle of a pandemic. Bearing in mind China have pulled out as well.

    Time for talking is over. Amanda made it clear she needs the fan’s to make this deal still go through.
    We need to protest,boycott and take the Epl to court. This is the only way to get it done or endure another century off what might off been.
