Isnt Bruce on a million a year at Newcastle and wasnt he on 2 million a year here??

What’s that got to do with anything? Do you know the ins and outs of Bruce’s Newcastle contract? I.e bonuses, severance pay etc? Nope, didn’t think so.

I saw a rumour on Twitter that a Bruce returned home one day to find DC in the bath with his wife. DC was drinking a can of Bruce's Skol out of the fridge while Mrs Bruce was licking his plums while they floated on the surface.

 

Bruce was livid. His tea was not ready either.

Just heard a fantastic quote on football ramble that kind of goes against the logic of the OP and few others, it went something like this: 

 

Former Sheffield Utd manager Steve Bruce has quit current club Sheffield Wednesday to take over his boyhood club Newcastle. Returning back to the North East where he grew up and also managed arch rivals Sunderland. It’s almost as if the former Birmingham and Villa manager doesn’t know the meaning of Loyalty! 

 

I posted it the other day.

And no one's posted the most interesting questions.

 

Why did Chansiri give Bruce the required permission to meet with Newcastle last week, if he wanted to keep him?

 

And then to accept chicken feed compensation?

I would read today's Star if I were you. 

 

But as DPP, with your legal nous can you confirm ingredients of a contact.

 

Vardy was 3 years ago and Chansir's still not learnt his lesson. Out of his depth.

Chansiri wanted rid now...

 

Ok, you keep making stuff up. 

 

How are things by the way Ben? 

 

Preferred the Tonto username, but each to their own.

Next you'll tell us Van Aken was a better choice than McGuire (£70 million today).

I thought Tonto's mummy said he wasn't allowed on the internet any more because he had been a naughty boy.

How do you know he gave permission.  Bruce has been talking to Newcastle for weeks 

 

If he did I bet it was subject to compensation being agreed

Because Bruce met Charnley last Friday in Manchester during Owls time so needed official permission, or contract breach.

 

Of course, his agent may have touted for job for weeks - but then why did club sign Bruce's 3 players which another manager may bin?

 

Paltry compensation was agreed, paid, now Chansiri's changed his mind ( after an implied contract with Newcastle settled).

You seriously think the club knew he was talking to Newcastle when they signed the players

Probably not if he was talking via agent, why they have em.

 

Called soccer grapevine. Club should have guessed - he was in betting day after Rafa announcement.

 

Why we need an experienced footy CEO with nous and power.

I know this opinion won't be popular on here but looking beyond the obvious knee jerk "Bruce is a snake" narrative, why would a manager jump ship from a club where he is loved by the fans to a club where he is already hated and are  favourites to be relegated? A club with a well known toxic atmosphere...

 

Because they are his boyhood club?

 

Not buying it.

 

I'm more inclined to believe that Bruce was unhappy at Wednesday. We already know he had showdown talks with DC about refusing to sell players. We already know he couldn't buy players.

It came out on one of the earlier twitter rumours about his departure that the chairman let him down in terms of promises given. 

 

If we were in a position to get up I don't see him jumping ship. 

 

I know this post will accumulate negs from all the usuals but it's not an opinion currently being aired on this forum which is why it should be discussed.

I do think there were more factors at play than it being Newcastle, and you make some good points. However I think if you look at the Bruce track record then looking after number one is a recurring theme.

What would we have done differently?

 

How would the outcome have changed in our favour?
