He’s done at Wednesday either way now for me 

Same for me. The fact we let him start late in the job out of respect for him and his family, and we have had that thrown back in our face within a few months.

 

He could have killed this speculation off if he wasn’t bothered about the job , he hasn’t and I think that even if he stays he will be out quickly as the fans won’t forgive him for this

Exactly.

If DC plays hardball enough to scupper the deal then logically it should be because he believes Bruce will still do a good job for us in spite of any disappointment he may feel at not going to Newcastle.

I'm sure would still.do a good.job. It's not like he's going to be asked to stack supermarket shelves. He's still.doing something 99% of us would.love to do.

 

I think DC would sooner stick him on gardening leave than back down. Just ask George Hirst etc.

If he doesn't go I think we would all forgive him if we win the first game! 

It happens all the time.. Players handing in transfer requests, refusing to play but then go on to play very well and all is forgiven. I think we are taking this to heart a tad too much!

On paper we have an easy start to the season. If we’re in the top 6 by the end of August I think the vast majority of fans will have totally put this behind us. Yes, we are that fickle.

This 1-yr rolling contract - when did it start? I can't recollect having send he'd signed at the end of the season or 1st July, so something must have been written in when he joined in January.

 

I imagine the compensation clause must have a sliding scale of value - so within 9/6/3 months of the end date the compo reduces accordingly?

Not sure you grasp the idea of a rolling contract. A 1 year rolling contract doesn't have an end date, each day you are effectively employed for another 365 days, it doesn't become 364 tomorrow, 363 the day after etc etc.

Keith Downie for SSN reporting exactly what we’ve been saying most of day 

 

Chansiri wanting big bucks, and looks likely to get em now in my opinion because Newcastle are a sham and desperate , coming out of his transfer budget tho

I 100% think the chairman is relishing the prospect of putting SB in a very uncomfortable position tomorrow. For what it’s worth I think the chairman will string Ashley and Bruce along until the end of the weekend. My guess is that Chansiri is lining up the replacement for Bruce once he’s got his man he will let the old mercenary go. Up the Owls!

I did read it, I just disagree and stated why I gave explanations as to why I disagreed ,  Our fans wouldn’t be so angry about him leaving if everyone thought other managers could come in and take us up.

Chill, no need to get angry because I don’t agree with you

I’m not angry Roland

After all this crap, has anyone stoped to ask the question. Has anyone actually contacted the club or bruce directly to get the story straight instead of all this "sky sports understands" balls.

 

Yes the club and Bruce might not respond but at least the media can then say "we contacted the club/Bruce and they declined to comment". I haven't seem a single tweet from anyone saying they tried contacting the club for comment.

This has been my point most of today. I’m not sure bruce has spoken to anyone bar Chansiri.  

Im willing to wait before I make judgements on him, im not goi g to give him grief just because the press are throwing stories around.  

 

A lot of posters here saying hes showing showing a lack of respect yet they are giving him dogs abuse without knowing if he’s even spoke to anyone. Surely he deserves respect unTIL he shows otherwise??

Don't talk daft, it's much more fun to pass judgment on pure speculation and poor journalism.

Dunno about anyone else, but once you decide u want to move house, it cant come quickly enough and the house ur in bugs the főők outa ya.

 

Same wiv a car init, once uv seen ur new one ur current one is poo. 

 

Point being thats where SB will be at now. 

May well be at lincoln tomoz but beyond that i just cant see it.

 

Loving DC for putting a sharp squeeze on mind.
