‘Retract that statement or I will make it my personal mission to destroy your reputation’

1 month ago

You disgusting, horrible, nasty piece of work.

Your suggestion re that open letter for Steve Bruce (opinion article written by Newcastle fan Stephen Carris contributing to The Mag – Read it HERE) after today’s match, to resign, turns my stomach and is so wrong at every level.

I may well follow this up by publishing your own ‘The Mag’ by calling it on Social Media and by other means ‘The Hate Mag’.

You suggested the letter should be signed as representing every Newcastle United fan.

Well that doesn’t include me !!

The guy has done his all for this club, whether successful or not.

His resources have been zero and we don’t know what he would have done if he’d had resources. We may never find out as the new owners will most likely want to replace him, but when, and who with ?

We aren’t a big attraction for good managers yet. They won’t want to take on a 5-10 years plan. They can enjoy 5-10 years success elsewhere during that period.

Steve Bruce managed to get us up to 12th last season with the same players and him in charge. Whatever your thoughts, and Bruce Haters like yourself, no one can say it was down to Graeme Jones.

We can’t and don’t know that for sure, and he certainly won’t get the job long term or necessarily achieve short term. He has no experience as a manager.

You’re missing so many factors why that letter could be very very destructive.

Matters for which we have no concrete information.

For example, no information, just supposition, Callum Wilson feels Steve Bruce is a good manger, thinks we’ve been unlucky a few matches and just two wins we would have been mid-table.

We get rid of Bruce, he doesn’t perform, and we’re f’d without his goals.

Then YOU are responsible for our potential relegation if that letter persuades Bruce to walk.

A new manager means we start again, with someone like Eddie Howe who took his team down. He’s weak, devoid of ideas and unable to motivate. Imagine Callum Wilson has a personal dislike of Eddie Howe. It’s possible.

That could affect Callum Wilson’s performances and goals and our ability to stay up.

The new owners might be very very annoyed that fans could treat Bruce like that, and view the fans as not as nice people as they thought. Why risk annoying new owners.

Imagine they want to keep him until January. Your suggestion could affect Steve Bruce and his management of the team. We need to be seen as good people, patient people as they’ve said they are themselves.

I could go on and on, but make no mistake, if your suggestion persuades people to generate what is essentially ‘Hate Mail’ this could send us into relegation.

You say you leave it to fans to decide, but you’ve sown the seeds to easily led so called fans / morons, to send their hate mail.

Now do us all a favour and retract that statement or I will make it my personal mission to destroy your reputation.

Enough said.
