Bruce is just doing what he always does when a better offer comes along. He is an utter disgrace, especially after the way Wednesday allowed him to stay out watching the bloody cricket last year and let his cronies run the team for a month whilst he stuffed his face.

Taking away any of the issues we may have with him or his football you have to seriously question Ashley or his advisors.

What the fuck was the question that Bruce was thought to be the best answer?

How can we ostracize ourselves from the core support more?
We don't want anymore of that attractive football the FSW churned out?

Total football suicide

Feel sorry for the “best supporters in the world” 🙄

If Wednesday get Gary Monk in, with their squad, he will take them up as Bruce takes Newcastle down!

"Who can we hire on a comparatively small salary, will just about be able to scrape us 17th place and will be so grateful to be here that he won't make any real demands or rock the boat?"

It is certainly a reasonable possibility.

More compensation for Christmas, winner!  Then on to the next mugs, moaning about how how horrible the Geordies were to him.

You say that but this is the man who said "who could you get who is better than me" just before he was binned and replaced by DS, who promptly took us up.  He probably believes he is the best man for the job.  He is probably wrong.

I think he still actually believes he knows what he is doing, obviously the large sums of money he receives  encourages him not to take a  too critical look at himself.
I am sure his son will be around to defend his oaf of a farther.

His son...my God, this time last year Alex Bruce was being touted as a player we might have to sign with the limited funds available.

I wish there were betting markets on Things People Will Say in a Press Conference. I'd be betting the house on: "I said when I was at Aston Villa that it was the biggest club I'd ever manage. It turns out I was wrong."
