As I said in the other thread I saw Mike Ashley land in a helicopter at Moor Lane this morning and get driven off. So maybe he is meeting Bruce in Birmingham? That or we are after a Newcastle player?

He's on his way to VP to get a reference for Bruce off Dr Xia.

He is a Geordie and his boyhood club have asked him to manage them - and while SW think they are a big club, Newcastle are a big club.

Donít really understand the hate - heís not Villa manager anymore thank god, but fair play to him for taking his dream job (just as Dean took his with us)

Exactly

Not at all. Dean Smith didn't shaft his employers to come to us. Bruce has spent his managerial career routinely screwing over his chairmen and leaving clubs in the lurch. He's not a man troubled by tiresome moral issues like loyalty and commitment. He might have bought enough lunches for his media mates to foster a 'nice bloke' image, but I'm not at all surprised to see fans of various clubs calling him out for shithousery.

Absolutely love this off the Sheffield Wednesday fans forum;

What a piece of absolute turd. The flat nose mrs doubtfire looking tub of Geordie goo.



Wednesday fans can go fuck themselves.  The absolute shite they gave us over having the temerity to sack Bruce, then giving it 110% on the holier-than-thou-ometer when they appointed him.  Not feeling so clever now, eh wankers?

Itís like how excited Sunderland fans got getting that turdbag MON. We told them he was a prick at heart and washed up,  just like Bruce is a self centred well past it prick. Agreed - fuck them.

if Sheffield Wednesday swap Bruce for Chris Houghton and pocket 4 million quid into the bargain

it will be the second greatest upgrade of all times

I read one quote from their forum saying "He is everything the Villa fans said he was when he joined us".

I also read something somewhere earlier today comparing him to McLeish. I think McLeish has a better mangerial CV than Bruce.

At least if Newcastle get relegated they will have a "promotion specialist" in the hot seat for 20/21 season

I was going to say if he gets them relegated he won't be given the chance of getting them promoted.

Then I remembered Mike Ashley is still in charge.

I get why he wants to go there but it's a bit shit so soon after joining them.

This is the point
Wendy's bent over backwards to accommodate him and have given him a lot of control following his appointment
Yes some of their fans were knobs about us sacking him but how much notice did we take of the Sunderland lads
Just roll back 12 months do you think he would have done the same to us?

I loved this comment on Twatter:

BREAKING Sunderland have offered to pay Steve Bruce's £3m compensation fee at Sheffield Wednesday to ensure their former boss goes to Newcastle. An insider said "We want to make sure they get Steve as manager. We hope he can do for them what he did for us" #SAFC #nufc #swfc

What gets me is this talentless idiot will walk away in a few months time with another few million in the bank.
He is by most standards a very rich man despite the fact he has been an abject failure for several years now.

The loyalty argument is nonsense. He did what just about every other soccer professional did in this day and age - took the better bigger club and better bigger pay packet.

The game is morally bankrupt - he is same as most any other.

Itís why in the rare occurrence someone actually does show loyalty it stands out so far.
