Newcastle United fan compiles CV to compete with Steve Bruce for NUFC management role

2 weeks ago

A Newcastle United fan wishing to remain anonymous for the time being, has touched the limits of desperation, for the sake of better results.

The young lad has compiled his footballing CV in an emergency bid to provide an alternative to Steve Bruce.

Sources say Lee Charnley would be “blown away” by this CV, with the only possible problem being the line where “honesty and integrity” were mentioned.

Other predictions have been made about the skills section as well, with this young Newcastle United fan listing a lot of points that are not possessed by Steve Bruce.

While it is uncertain whether the current manager would be either angry or amused by this bold job seeker, it’s fair to say that he (Steve Bruce) will be about getting the balance right.

The Newcastle United fan CV has now been made public to readers of The Mag to judge if they would rather stick with Bruce, or give this unnamed fellow a try…?
