Report from The Independent directly quoting Bruce: 

 

https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/newcastle-manager-steve-bruce-sheffield-wednesday-benitez-terry-arteta-odds-a8998561.html

 

Bruce knows nothing about it. 

 

The club and Bruce just need to make a statement to quell the speculation. 

A real scoop for the independent that !!!! Lol

  • Imagine if he holds talks, then turns it down. Either outcome here would be amazing.

What?

 

We waited for weeks for him and gave him the opportunity to stay on holiday and wait to come in for the job - not many would do that 

 

He’s sold us the dream and loved he club etc take us back where we belong, said it at owls in park etc - all in this time he’s been tapped up by Newcastle

 

If you believe he’s only spoke to them last few days you are really naive - he’s been sounding it out for weeks and giving us the fans a load of bull just 4 weeks before season starts 

 

Good riddance

Fair enough I’d wait out till some kind of official confirmation, but not too sure what your disagreeing with ?     

 

Horrendous from Bruce if he goes

So to summerise...

 

-  Newcastle are set to make an approach for SB.

- Doom says Newcastle haven't approached the club, nor would we encourge one.

- Bruce has asked DC to allow him to speak to Newcastle.

- @Owlinmad is ITK and says Bruce is staying.

- @Semedo's ferret is ITK and says Bruce is going.

- DC loves bowling.

 

Only one man for the job...

 

You know what to do @thebizzle

From what I can see we are no further forward than 24hrs ago, and all this is doing is impacting on SWFC preseason!!!

 

Big Sam said on talksport that he know SB really well and he says he will take the job!!!!

 

We can’t afford to drag it out, we tell Mike Ashley this is what we want in compensation if you want SB, take it or leave 

 

That’s what they would do

wind your neck in, as it been confirmed yet? Until it's confirmed, he's still our manager. Grow up and show some class.

Having slept on it, more relaxed. We've had our judas moments before and survived, at least Big Ron won something. 

 

No doubt his departure would be devastating in the short term, given the season is so close and now losing valuable recruitment time to put a squad together. 

 

It does concern me finding a replacement as the pool of candidates for what will be a mid table championship club, hamstrung by FFP will be shallow, populated by the usual suspects and an obscure candidate pushed by Doyen. 

 

My concern is, for whatever reason Bruce stays, is his position tenable? Is his heart in it? Will the fans give him the leeway after a bad spell, he would otherwise have had?

 

If a manager asks to leave, suggests not, in which case fizz him. We are not Steve Bruce's Sheffield Wednesday, we are Sheffield Wednesday.

It’s more worrying that Strudwick, Downes, Agnew and Clemence will leave with him.

 

Leaving us with the expertise of the chairman and the advisor.  

 

Huge huge sigh.

Just had a sneaky bet on Quequi Sanchez Flores being next Newcastle manager. Just hoping it’s not Bruce really. 

He is the man they need. Top manager. Perfect for the toon

Does that mean big Sam has spoken to Bruce I wonder.....and has Rafa spoken to Bruce like he supposedly has to others to put them off??

Are you seriously saying you wouldn't listen to an offer from another company?  More pay etc?  Cause you would.

 

Your last paragraph is completely made up without a jot of evidence.   The guy hasn't even left yet or given any inclination that he is leaving.  But you slap him about regardless.

 

IF he does leave we move on it's part of football, the big fish eat the smaller fish.  Thats the gamble when you hire a high profile manager. Live with it.

 

Fairly confident he's stopping.

Lets all blame Bruce. Every manager says these things whilst employed at a club. What did you want him to say at OITP? Yeah I’m off to Newcastle? 

 

Its clear things are still not good behind the scenes. Bruce wouldn’t leave us to go work for Ashley if that’s the case. I find it absolutely staggering that Wednesday fans still can’t see what the problem at the club is, and has been for a long time now.

Anyone considered that Bruce has talks but is put off it by Ashley and the Toon fans reactions? :ph34r:

  • If they're asking Allardyce then you have to fear that they're probably gonna ask Pardew. 
     

    I honestly think Bruce will say no and we'll get Pardew
