I can’t say too much about the new manager apart from he is a big fan of Wednesday and has had two teams promoted from the Championship to the Premier League.

 

Conlisio et animals.

You do realise it's not like he's tearing up his contract right? He's resigning from managing the club, the contract is still in place and Newcastle will still have to pay compensation to release him from it, or he will simply be placed on gardening leave, unable to sign a new contract with a new employer, same as if we sacked him.

:Sid:

He has

Ash made an offer, £4.5M DC turned him down.

So Bruce resigns, ash offers less £0.5M less...now DC is in a very awkward and a no win situation...so he will probably take the £4m...he could of course still tell em to bollloxe, but after court costs / major hassle it's not worth fighting.

Bruce and Ashley have set this up...Though I think he's paid a lot more than he wanted to do. Well done DC......

According some though, Bruce has done nothing wrong. Granted, being a devious bent bastarde is not illegal

Not sure how accurate this is, but I always thought Kovacevic was our record outgoing transfer?

We got around 2.7 for Kovacevic when he left, around the same for Emerson Thome too

If Wednesday got a decent amount of compensation that we have made best out of a bad situation.

I was just looking at transfermarkt - a couple of those 'record departure' figures look over-inflated - not just Kovacevic but Thome too...

Kovacevic seemed to be sold for gazillions by every subsequent club he went to. Don't suppose we negotiated a sell on clause.:ph34r:

Without knowing numbers involved I think we made more from the sell on fee than the actual sale.

4M is a absolute steal for a average manager 

 

Geordies are impressed by that too.

 

4Million In modern football isn't a lot, only about two Joselu's, but to actually pay compensation to get this no hoper is what's galling! All they had to do was wait a few months and he would have been sacked anyway by Wednesday. It's what Bruce does. Get sacked. He'll be sacked by fatso before the seasons out.

What a circus Ashley has turned the club into to. There's only one course. Discourse. #Boycott everything Ashley.

Irony is, Joselu just f*cked off to Alaves, so they have, no strikers, coz even without a manager Ashley will still sell everyone off. Or maybe he sold Joselu to pay towards the compensation for Bruce :Sid:

If Ashley would have just paid the release fee, i think we would have all understood and wished Bruce all the best. What a mess.
