Steve Bruce Empathy For Pardew ‘I Know How Difficult The North East Is’

7 years ago

Who needs enemies when you have the likes of Steve Bruce sticking up for you.

The Geordie fraud has been empathising with Alan Pardew, claiming ‘I know how difficult the north east is’.

Having been one of the many linked with taking over from the hapless Pardew, Bruce has been expressing mock outrage at being linked to a job which already has a sitting (duck) manager.

Obviously though, Steve Bruce will be loving it!

Like Alan Pardew, Steve Bruce has a very loose grip on the the truth/reality and when the mackems gave him the boot he was happy to trot out the line that a lot of the problems were because he was (allegedly!!) a Newcastle fan. Of course it would be nothing to do with the fact that he only won 29 of the 98 matches when he was in charge at Sunderland.

Speaking to Radio 5 Live Steve Bruce had this to say;

“It isn’t nice it is a horrible Sunday morning for him and I find it very, very disrespectful that I’m linked with somebody else’s job when he’s still in a job.

“It’s a hard enough job we’ve all got. We all know what it is like now in football management. That part of the game will never change, but for me at the moment I’m just concentrating on the game against West Ham [Monday night].

“After what happened to me at Sunderland, it is similar to what Alan Pardew is going through now. I know how difficult the north east is.

“I’ve been here for a couple of years. Hull gave me that chance to get back up and running again and for that I’ll always be grateful.”
