‘I’m sorry, Steve Bruce has been stealing a living at Newcastle United – Time to go’

2 weeks ago

I feel like I have to do this.

That is, submit an article on a man I generally dislike, and have always felt uneasy with concerning Newcastle United.

After writing with nostalgia and affection recently, everybody from Gavin Peacock to Paul Cannell, all I feel towards NUFC’s current head coach is anger and animosity.

Steve Bruce has literally been stealing a living at Newcastle for over two years…he knows it, and that is why he is unlikely to resign.

I do believe that he knows fine well that he is way out of his depth as a Premier League manager – but that he is the perfect fit and foil for an owner with no ambition for the club whatsoever.

I expected Newcastle to lose at Molineux yesterday and also expected the usual claptrap that comes out of Bruce’s mouth every week.

Whilst having a few pints during the game, the general consensus of the lads was that they are resigned to the club being relegated this season.

The overwhelming reasoning being that Steve Bruce will somehow hold onto the manager’s job until it becomes too late for someone else to come in and potentially save Newcastle’s skin.

In fact, exactly like in 2016 when Ashley and his minions waited an eternity before replacing Steve McClaren with Raphael Benitez. Talk about Nero fiddles as Rome was burning down? Fables like that haven’t got a look in when it comes to the selfish clowns running Newcastle United.

Lessons are never learned here, incompetence is the norm and the same mistakes are made over and over again.

As we head into another International break (and still not a victory since the last one) I would like to think that someone even as thick-skinned as Steve Bruce may contemplate our current predicament.

He is currently the manager of a soulless shell of a once famous club, that continues to stagnate in dire mediocrity.

He is also employed by a self-centred and unpredictable man with seemingly no redeemable features.

A man that has shown unprecedented levels of contempt to the region that Steve Bruce says he was proud to be brought up in.

Take a good hard look in the mirror this morning Steve Bruce. This is never going to work out is it?

There are some things that money just can’t buy…

Like Happiness, Health, Self-Respect and Integrity.

Do the right thing…Just leave Steve.
