An open letter to Steve Bruce – Amendment / Apology

1 month ago

I was rather taken aback by Mr Wilsons response (‘Retract that statement or I will make it my personal mission to destroy your reputation’ read HERE) to the open letter I penned to Steve Bruce, particularly the personal threats which I believe have no place here, or anywhere else, for that matter.

Aside from threatening me personally, he does go on to make a case which I have to respect.

That which is: I cannot claim to represent “all Newcastle United fans on the planet”.

And it is, of course, wrong that I would suggest/insist so.

I’m sure there are many other NUFC fans out there who support Steve Bruce and his efforts.

To those fans I apologise sincerely, and recognise that my own opinion (as with all opinions in a fan forum, not a court of law) is just that: my opinion.

Whilst I see no need to retract the comments made, I ask the editor to withdraw the signatory of “all Newcastle United fans on the planet” with “a Newcastle United fan” (ED- See below)

In the event of our relegation, I hope Mr Bruce and all fans will accept my apologies for my part in it. I had no idea of the power and influence I yield!

However, with great power comes great responsibility. I accept that.

Saturday 16 October 2021:

This may possibly end up being the shortest article ever written for the Mag…

An open letter to Steve Bruce, Manager / Head Coach Newcastle United:

“Dear Steve,

After Sunday, please leave our club.

You staying on is only hurting the club, fans and region.

If you ever truly cared about the region and / or the club, you know it would be the right thing to do.

You’re obviously a proud man but the results and performances don’t lie.

Do the right thing and go.


A Newcastle United fan”

And that’s it.
