Steve Bruce favourite for Newcastle job

Recommended Posts

It makes no sense for Bruce to be on his way, yet taking training at Middlewood this morning.

 

Saying bye to the players? Yes, maybe. But taking training?? No way.

 

@Owlinmad is your time here done then? What you sayin'?

The online apps are like the modern fruit machines, when I was a young un I will admit I was silly enou* to throw money in them. 

 

Bit the apps apps now it’s one click and you can be throwing away your wages on blackjack, roulette, online fruit machines, I mean ffs In play betting.

its a serious problem when people are scrambling to put a bet on about when the next corner will be. 

I think in. Another ten years we will have a very serious problem in this country with gambling addiction  

anyhow im off to look at the what odds I can get on when Steve Bruce nexts has a sip of his tea lol

Although sad to hear you have to do that I’m very happy to hear it’s being tackled in education, like I said we have some huge problems coming in the next few years with this addiction

Alarm bells should have been ringing when he said he was 'going home to walk the dog',

As  I previously quoted on another thread

 

"TBH, I think Bruce's dog must be Fkin knackered today,... Manchester, Chester, Hillsborough, Newcastle.... And the emergency vet.."

Not sure mate, like sally says I’m sure he’s a decent bloke, but if he was making any big serious money from punting he wouldn’t be farming out his service for £30 per month, to others.

unfortunately as I mentioned in the previous post watching someone  with gambling problems made me very aware  of just how many people were willing to throw away money to tipsters.

 

it certainly made me look at people in the casino and bookmarking industry and think about how much misery they are actually living off. 

One guy I used to play poker with online  killed himself a few years ago because of how much he lost with betting.

 

One of the reasons I never gambled really, even though my mental health lends itself to addictive behaviours, is my Uncle was a bookie and from being a kid he always told me that the bookie always wins in the end, theres no real win for punters, small ones to keep em coming back in the hope of a bigger win, but, the bookies are the ones who end up with the money. Wern't wrong, hes f*cking loaded :Sid:

If it’s true that he’s been engineering this move while doing pre season, signing and releasing players, and the move falls through we should sack Steve Bruce for gross misconduct.

Said earlier on in this thread that this hasn't happened over the last coming days 

 

Low and behold - he's been tapping Ashley up for months way before Rafa packed his bags - giving us all the hype and love in for Wednesday next season and he's leaving us high and dry

 

Grade A f*cking t0sspot - good riddance, anyone else who wishes him well needs their head checking

Seems to me that SB is a man in a hurry to complete his bucket list. Don't be surprised to see him swimming with dolphins or abseiling down the Great Wall of China soon. I was stupid enough to think that he was a man of principle. I know it's football, but bringing staff in, signing and re-signing players then running away like a divorcee with a boob job is just shoddy behaviour.

 

Alarm bells should have been ringing when he said he was 'going home to walk the dog', a term used up there for going down the local for a Broon Ale.

 

Lets hope DC makes Ashleys pips sqeak.       

 

Tbf the players he re-signed and got rid of have helped us out quite a bit. He made the right calls.

Maybe he's just sat in his conservatory thinking 'what the f do I do now?'

 

We've all been there when we've been offered a new job.

The first mention about us and not sodding Newcastle and the PL.

 

And he is spot on.

 

 

Its funny how many story's on the subject make no reference to us at all. Bizarre considering he is employed by our club and Newcastle will need to pay us to break his contract. 

 

It shouldn't bother me but it does.
