What a mess he's left Sheffield Wednesday in. The coaches have resigned too. Absolutely disgraceful behaviour and people think he's a good guy.

Almost Pubehead-esque!

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."

“I honestly wouldn’t have left Sheffield Wednesday for any other club than Newcastle. It’s a huge club with a huge support and most importantly it’s my club, that I’ve loved since I was a lad. “

"I've got too much respect for Sheffield Wednesday to air the dirty linen in public. I can understand why their fans are disappointed, but let's just say that there was more going on behind the scenes than people realise."

Surely even Bruce must know he will be found out pretty quickly and sacked by xmas.
How about on the 24th of November? That would be funny.

Bad luck Newcastle United stuck with spud head and no sunshine in the near future.  Things will only get worse with SB.  As for Sheff Wed I don't like you but you have had a lucky escape when the immediate disappointment evaporates.

Imagine if Newcastle had tried to poach Bruce from us last summer! This place would have made for interesting reading. "See - we are lucky to have him!" "Fuck off - he's shut and he's a traitor".

Sometimes life is good. I'm. Enjoying going to work right now... "I'm not going to say I told you so, but fucking hell I didn't realise it would be as quick as this!"

If they get Hughton in, which to me is a no-brainer, they have a good chance this season.

I hope this will mean Sheffield United finish above the barcodes too and let them gloat over the wanker too.

There really are an awful lot of fans who must really detest him.

Bruce is a dinosaur from the Jurassic period with his style of play. Apparently Ashley has coughed up £4m in compensation. Not a good businessman at all. The Championship beckons Brucey!

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?

"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?"

I can well believe that was actually the question.

already linked with Yannick Bolaise and they described Bruce as a tactician
