Steve Bruce answers Simon Jordan and calls to quit
Simon Jordan had his say on Steve Bruce earlier this week.
Newcastle United fans had their say on Steve Bruce last weekend.
For once, Simon Jordan and the Newcastle fans agreeing on something.
That something being a belief that Steve Bruce should resign.
Newcastle fans think Steve Bruce should go as soon as possible because he isn’t good enough for the NUFC job.
Whilst Simon Jordan claims Steve Bruce is more than good enough for the job of Newcastle United Head Coach BUT the problem is (according to Jordan) that NUFC fans won’t ever be willing to accept this.
On Thursday morning, Steve Bruce had his pre-Leeds press conference and was asked to respond to both Simon Jordan and the Newcastle fans calling for his resignation…
Simon Jordan – Tuesday 14 September 2021:
“A lot of Newcastle supporters don’t like Steve Bruce, they don’t rate his record.
“I happen to rate Steve Bruce
“I think he’s a decent football manager.
“I think he should leave Newcastle, I don’t think he can ever turn this around, I don’t think he’s ever going to right this.
“I think he should quit?
“Oh, absolutely, and I’ve told him unequivocally.
“The time to quit was [after] when he did his job last season.”
Steve Bruce – Thursday 16 September 2021 at his pre-Leeds press conference:
“I understand where Simon [Jordan] is coming from but I never really thought about it then.
“I never thought just because it’s tough here, I’m going to walk away.”
“I believe with the experience that I’ve got that I can try and help the club.
“A lot of people will find that laughable, I understand.
“But that’s what I genuinely believe.
“I hope that my experience can see us through.”
Steve Bruce also asked at his pre-Leeds press conference about Newcastle United fans calling for him to go, the latest chants coming at the 4-1 hammering by Man Utd:
“It’s always difficult.
“I’d be sick if I said I quite enjoyed it.
“The frustration is if you don’t get results then ultimately the head coach bears the brunt.
“I have to accept results haven’t been good enough.
“It’s not all about me.
“I’m here to only do what I think is best for the club, that is managing it as best I can and keep us moving along.
“That [whether Steve Bruce should go or not] is for other people to answer that.
“I will continue to do my best.
“I’m never going to walk away from the challenge.”
