Sunderland fans react to Steve Bruce now being hot favourite for Newcastle United job – Interesting…

3 years ago

Sunderland fans have been reacting to the news that Steve Bruce is now the very short priced hot favourite to be the next Newcastle United Manager.

The current Sheffield Wednesday boss has seen his odds dramatically fall from 40-1 to even money.

Newcastle fans were wondering how things could get any worse this Summer and now they have realised how that can now be the reality.

Last month the Newcastle fans were gutted when it was revealed that Rafa Gutted would be leaving, the Sunderland fans the complete opposite as the top class manager was forced to walk away by Mike Ashley.

This is a situation now very much repeated, Newcastle fans dreading this news becoming reality, whist even League One Sunderland fans are seeing it as a dream Summer if Steve Bruce is appointed by Mike Ashley.

Sunderland fans comment via their Ready To Go message board:

‘Would confirm beyond doubt that Mike Ashley is one of us.’

‘I know we aren’t in a good place at the moment but they are a complete shambles.’

‘Imagine thinking you’re entitled to ”world class managers” and then ending up with Steve Bruce 😆 could not be a more perfect script if true.’

‘From celebrating a takeover by a rich sheikh and keeping Rafa, to Steve Bruce.’

‘Can’t wait to see 4 6 0 back in action.’

‘Ashley really knows how to push their buttons like!’

‘I said it recently and it is right, the more that the mags get personal and nasty with Ashley the more he goes out of his way to drive them crazy.

I think the Newcastle supporters outside of his house routine must have really annoyed him.’

No money and Ashley

Steve Bruce

Colback and Catts in the middle.’

‘He’s not daft, ready made excuses wherever he goes.

Even more so with this one due to following Rafa at a time when the club is in turmoil and a lot of frustration among fans etc.’

‘Christmas has come early!!!……haha.’

‘Please, please be true the meltdoon would be unbelievable.’

‘Hope this is true.

He’ll no doubt take the opportunity to tell the press that he was never welcome here due to being a Geordie.’

‘Haway Big Mike, you know it makes sense!’

‘My word, would be class if true!’

‘Just went to text me mag mate there and before I could even finish typing he’s sent me a text saying “fu.. off”.’

‘March 2020.

Bruce blamed it on Newcastle fans unwilling to accept his past as manager of Sunderland.’

‘Haway fatty get it sorted … make my weekend this.’

‘Has he no shame?

Ex-Birmingham player/manager – Manages Aston Villa

Ex-Sheff Utd player/manager – Manages Sheff Wed

Ex-Sunderland manager – would jump at the chance to manager the Mags!’

‘What a brilliant summer this would be the cherry on the pasty.’

‘He’s a perfect patsy for Ashley.’

‘Canny history of getting teams relegated.’

‘Haway Mike you know it makes sense.’

‘Please. Please. Please. Please.please. Please. Please make this be true.’
