I'd speculate they're lining up a caretaker. Bruce will go, as will his staff, so you need someone internal to pick up the reins.

Re: Club in talks to bring in Graeme Jones

Bruce refused to talk about it last night when asked and sounded pretty pissed off with the question. Feels like it is not his choice at all.

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v a**hole villa

He does keep going to "they won't do anything without a takeover" though. This team with a handful of additions is a good side, it's just been coached to utter s****. Pundits going on about Rafa's "miracle" in keeping us up have been repeating this lie ever since, and the team hides behind it. It's...

<awe> Steve Bruce giving 3 days off a week too.

Anyone seen the Ritchie De Laet interview. Bruce's training sessions. Apparently he just drops a ball down and says 'let's play'.
Probably gets Lascelles to dish the bibs out, throws them a ball and disappears back inside.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2021)

Yeah. He's got a touch of the Mike Williamson (in a good way) about him, in the way that I musjudged. Unheralded and at first I thought a clogger, but really just a solid defender. Not great on the ball but not terrible. I think that's really harsh on him, we've got 3 really good ball playing defen...

Re: Match Thread: Arsenal v Newcastle (Easy 3 points)

Why is Jamie Carragher the only pundit I have seen question the lack of tactical cohesion on show from our side? Everyone else is focusing on the players, the formations, the fans and the owner. Carragher is the only person I've seen highlight how nobody seems to know what they are supposed to be do...

Re: Match Thread: Arsenal v Newcastle (Easy 3 points)

He blamed getting caught on the break because of getting players in the box and general attacking intent. Before making that s*** excuse did it not occur to him that we didn't manage an effort on goal all game? What a clueless fuckwit. I'm done with him. He genuinely thinks 'bodies forward = attack...

He has zero idea how football works, his understanding of the game is so basic it's genuinely painful.

Re: Match Thread: Arsenal v Newcastle (Easy 3 points)

This. No structure, no style of play, no identity and no ambition. Manquillo & Murphy need to come back into the team.. we miss ASM's pace, unpredictability and trickery badly. We need a creative ball playing midfielder with power, strength and atheism not some slow inconsistent plodder like Shelve...

I'll be honest, I completely forgot about anything Hughes had done since Man City. He's just another Bruce.

Re: Match Thread: Arsenal v Newcastle (Easy 3 points)

We have zero pattern of play. Just random and s****. Jonjo Shelvey is a liability. No one looks bothered. Bruce has lost the dressing room. Has he ever had it? Spot on regarding our pattern of play. He is just like a PE teacher, thinks that hard work and doing the basics will work. That doesn't eve...

Andy Carroll has been our best player in recent weeks.

Re: Match Thread: Arsenal v Newcastle (Easy 3 points)

Think the logic is that the only thing he's supposed to be good at is kicking a ball accurately. Genuinely as much as you dislike Ritchie, you have to admit he'd be taking better free kicks and corners, and therefore doing far more than that waste of space. Need Murphy on immediately even if just t...

How long can the myth of Shelvey being good at setpieces persist? s*** at corners, hasn't hit the target never mind scored from a free kick in donkeys, is he secretly good at throw ins?
