    Re: Steve Bruce sacked by Newcastle

    More chance of us going for Barry Fry now TLG has highlighted hes about.

    Choo and Dalman will be on the phone as soon as they see hes about.

    In all seriousness shouldnt joke about it with this lot.

    Saw a Youtube video about Bruce's sacking. I noticed this in the comments section....

    "I hope Steve Bruce sees sense and RETIRES from football altogether because managers like him are done in modern football. But a naive chairman will see him as one of those "experienced" managers as if that means Bruce is still capable of improving football teams with his unimaginative tactic"

    It has a familiar ring to it.

    Yes he may not be of the modern era however we have not got modern era players , club mindset /ethos , with that in mind and looking at Bruce's record in the championship , great connections at bigger clubs , Id love him here .

    A lot of these types have been phased out of the top level, you'd have the old boys like Hughes, Pardew, Pulis etc knocking around the lower half PL sides 3/4 years ago but now these clubs are looking past shit football and the short termism that comes with those managers. Shame we haven't caught on, I'm prepared for Pulis to get the job when Mick is inevitably binned.

    Would you put Bruce into this group though ?? Isn't he playing a type of passing game in the Premiership with a squad that perhaps lacks depth due to purse strings controls , club which was up for sale for a while which must have effected the performance of everyone at that club , until Saudi Arabia rocked up !!

    And the winner is :


    Mick: Games 1,025 Wins 396 Draws 278 Losses 351 Win % 38.63

    Bruce : Games 1,000 Wins 376 Draws 254 Losses 370 Win % 37.60

    Neil : Games 1,551 Wins 622 Draws 422 Losses 507 Win % 40.10

    Pulis Games 1,137 Wins 410 Draws 338 Losses 389 Win % 36.06

    Re: Steve Bruce sacked by Newcastle

    He isnít going to get £93m to spend here.

    Actually, the whole Mick situation makes sense: Newcastle will take him off our hands in return for £5m. Thatís why he hasnít been sacked! 🤣

    Win percentages are not the most useful measure where league games are concerned. Average points per game are more meaningful in such circumstances.

    I'd imagine that Warnock has played the smallest number of games out of that list at the top level

    I'd have Bruce.

    Brilliant pedigree

    Re: Steve Bruce sacked by Newcastle

    Hasn't he said in an interview that he thinks this is the right time for him to retire?
    Then again Warnock also said that his job with us would be his last.
