Obviously we were all devastated when Steve Bruce was given the boot, at a club whose fans deserved him and doing such a good job.

We can exclusively reveal though that maybe he wasn’t quite as useless as we originally thought, though not by much!

At the time of the Geordie traitor’s sacking he was actually only the seventh worst, in terms of average points per match while at the mackems.

As you will see from the table he was marginally less worse than greats like Steve Kean and our old hero Mick McCarthy.

Alan Pardew by contrast is bang up there in seventh, spookily where a lot of Newcastle fans fancy us to finish this season.

So the campaign starts here ‘Get Brucey Back’ and let him finish the job off!
