He's 100% going, there's no way it would drag on as long as this with no comment from the club if he was staying. 

Even though it took them about four weeks to tell us a player had signed. You expect them to immediately issue a press release on a rumour?

if the club comments and circumstances change they just look daft. Think Richards with Big Ron.

100% agree and hope Chansiri knows when to be sensible, but everything points towards the owner not getting bullied by the big boys at Newcastle and wanting a fair deal for Sheffield Wednesday 

 

I just fear DC lacks that balance, just as it appears he does on the topic of player transfers (and ticket prices, and the cost of executive boxes, and the cost of replica kits, etc.).

 

All said and done, pushing for top dollar all the time isn't smart business.

Why don’t Ashley and DC have a bowl off?

 

Over priced Nachos and fruit shoots with shoes that smell like Rusty Lee’s flange. 

 

Sky Sports would lap it up.

Not too sure he’s asking for anything more than is in his contract, how could he ? 

 

Think the situation is Newcastle don’t wanna pay a penny

I honestly don’t even think Newcastle have asked the question, definitely not officially

 

Ashely doesn’t want to pay compensation for Bruce or likely anyone else

So what's the delay on his part? Surely there's an out of work manager that fancies a Premier League gig at a biggish club regardless of the working conditions.

Fair point. Channel 4 will take it because of the Rusty Lee angle.

    Stolen from Twitter by the way.

  • God I hope Bruce doesn't walk. I read somewhere earlier that even if he resigned, Ashley would still have to pay compensation, possibly due to the fact that they've approached him and discussed terms? No idea. I hope he rejects NUFC and Ashley has to dig through the bottom of the barrel to find some willing idiot to take over.

    Sounds familiar this summer.
     


    Its almost exactly the same as the fakeover.

     

    Various: Steve F*cking Bruce to be appointed as new manager

    •  

      I'm told there's no change at #swfc regarding Steve Bruce. The club hasn't received an approach from #nufc. Bruce took the Owls training today at Middlewood and has been around the club.@footballheaven

       
       
       
       
      ?s=19

      BBC Sheffield reporter. Ashley and Charnley are f***ing useless :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
       

      If there's been no approach to SW, how have they (NUFC) allegedly been able to talk to him and agree his terms?
       

      That's the question that's been rattling about my brain today......
    • #2552 by JH on 12 Jul, 2019 17:48
    • It’s not unusual for them to give permission to speak to NUFC subject to agreeing compensation

    • Heard he's having 2nd thoughts down to the reception he'll get off the fans and the 2 clubs can't agree a compo package.

      Fingers crossed, be great if it falls through
       

      Possibly something in this one.  :lol: Will find out more. 
       

      Wouldn’t be surprised if a few people had got in his ear and told him some home truths about us.

      The fact that he’s taking training etc would suggest he’s had second thoughts

      Buzzcocks in as assistant manager.
       

      Blatantly
    • #2561 by chopey on 12 Jul, 2019 17:59
    • Joking aside this is a horror show, I'm totally in the camp that wants as much pain for Ashley as possible. How can we possibly negotiate for players in the limited time we have left if we can't even get a Championship has been? that 14/1 for us to finish bottom looks very tempting just now.
    • #2562 by ScottishMagpie on 12 Jul, 2019 18:00
    • So we've "approached" swfc for permission to talk to the walking cabbage and been that was granted, we've had talks with him but we've not gone back to "approach" the subject of compensation?

      Yeah, I don’t get it though  The so called takeover was a smoke screen, but this...?

    • Hope they f*** us over on the fee so we can go as long as possible without any preparation or new players.
    #2570 by ToonArmy1892 on 12 Jul, 2019 18:25
    I don't know what Ashley is thinking.

    Bruce isn't even guaranteed to do a better job than Redfearne and Dawson, he might aswell just keep things as they are and save on the money.

    He is f***ing mad.
    #2571 by Shelvey's Hair on 12 Jul, 2019 18:26
    Maybe the club are trying to scare us into excepting Redfearn  

    Who appointed him anyway? seemed to come out of the blue and he was working for Talkshoite.. so Id assume something to do with Wise?

So. 

 

If theres been no official approach. But Bruce knows they want him and he wants to go. 

 

If Bruce resigns does that circumvent the compo issue.
