Newcastle boss Steve Bruce says criticism of his tenure has been “personal from day one” but he “won’t give in”.

His team lose to Brentford in a Cup quarter-final and then lose to a team reputed to the worst in Premier League history. They show no ambition in either game, so what does he expect?

He struggles because he’s way out of his depth .like watching a drowning man. Personally I think he should go.

It's not necessarily "personal." He seems like an alright guy. Someone to have a pint with.

But he's nowhere NEAR what is required to be a Premier League manager. We have a decent squad on paper - enough to comfortably finish somewhere between 8th and 12th with the right leadership.

It's the negative tactics and lack of ambition, creativity and variance we hate, Brucey.

NUFC fan.

This is one of the problems. You don’t have a good squad, either on paper or on grass!

I’m looking at the Newcastle squad and I struggle to identify one single player who would get a regular game for a top six side.

A Newcastle fan with a degree of realism for once. You have a "reasonable" squad but are held back by an owner who won't do what it takes to make you a "big" team. That means buying players and get a manager who will take you to the next level. Until then, get used to being mid-table at best.

8th to 12th? We don’t have a capable centre mid. We’ve fluked our way to 15th by nicking points. Bruce is abysmal but our team is bottom 5 quality too. Owner/manager/coaches/scouts/players all need replaced. Terribly run club, we can pull double the crowds of some little clubs in the league but they have smarter people at the helm.

Decent squad? Take away the half decent Wilson and you're left with one of the poorest forward lines in the Premier. Jolinton is the worst Brazilian player I've ever seen yet he plays every week.

Steve Bruce signed Joelinton for 40 million Great British Pounds. Not only that but he continues to play him despite only scoring 3 goals in 53 appearances. One of those goals being against Rochdale in the FA Cup. This failure alone to recognize that perhaps Joelinton is pants and can offer the club nothing is deserving of the sack. Bruce is a dinosaur and belongs in league 1 or equivalent really

Agreed, Joelinton has been a total flop for the transfer fee and considering Newcastle have a limited transfer budget. Really poor signing and a player who had never got double figures in a league season prior to Newcastle buying him. It's really hard to understand why he cost so much and why they thought it was worth paying that much. Surely the club scouting is to blame though rather than Bruce.

Do your research first .The deal for Joelinton was done before Bruce signed for the toon.
The reason Joelinton figures in every game will not be Bruce’s decision but probably more contractual or Ashley insists he plays to put him in the shop window to sell him and recoup some of the 40 mill.
If we sack bruce then what is the next part of your brilliant plan seeing you are a footballing genius.

Unfortunately everything with SB is 'personal'. It was the same when he was with us at the Villa. Watching Newcastle, who have a safe PL squad, the other night had me thinking that he could pull off the miracle of getting that squad relegated when there is only one place up for grabs. Decent bloke, but Newcastle deserve much better.

The sad reality is, you are a poor manager and are one of many who just go from job to job on good money for ultimately doing a s**t job somewhere else. Bruce, Allardyce, Pulis, Mcclaren and many more are inept but go from job to job. Its a career where you are effectively rewarded for not being very good at your specific requirements

Enough is enough with Bruce now, its time for him to go and bring Eddie Howe in.
I've been sympathetic with Bruce up until last month or so, but i cannot watch the dire performances he oversees anymore, and what he see's in the likes of Yedlin, one of our worst ever players btw, is beyond me and reason why he needs to go now. Players need a kick too, lack of pride throughout.

Part of the reason the criticism has been personal, Mr Bruce, is that the style of football your teams have played down the years, at many different clubs, has been utter dross.

15/01/2021 16:13:21 55 4

Totally agree with this. He was dross at Villa and by championship standards had ample funds to spend . To be fair he got John McGinn for a song but wasted a lot of money on the likes of Hogan.
He also once said he didn’t do tactics which was alarming but quite apparent from the way he set the team up.
I don’t dislike Bruce but he was t called Bruceosaurus for nothing.

So why is the criticism personal not professional? Obviously he's ex Sunderland so that doesn't help. But as per usual Geordies getting ahead of themselves just cos King Kev nearly won the title in the 90s.

Anyway quit whinging. With the resources he has he's doing ok. You won't get relegated. Mike Ashley must be happy though, with you lot focusing on Bruce. Maybe that's why he got the job!

"Resigned" lol. Clubs normally offer managers the chance to "resign" instead of firing them first so they don't have to pay out. Maybe he didn't want to be where he wasn't wanted and took the high ground instead of holding the clubs to ransom?

At Hull he'd won promotion to PL, twi, and had overseen the club play in its first FA Cup final. He resigned after guiding the club back to the PL with a playoff final win against Sheff Wed.
The reason ? Owner told him he would NOT get transfer funds he wanted to fund the PL campaign

There is a lot of potential there. If Newcastle had an owner who could throw a lot of cash at it - Manchester City/PSG/Chelsea money - then they are a club that could be a genuine force in the game. That's what it is all about in modern club football unfortunately.

It isn’t necessarily personal though. Let’s say there’s a manager called “Bruce Stevens” who goes out to defend against a team with no wins all season and loses. Or plays dreadfully against a Championship team in a cup quarter final. Would he be regarded any better? SB has been unlucky to be without a key player in St Maximan though.

A manager can win the league, open top bus, walking on water and the same "fans" are calling for his head on a plate a few months, and a bad run, later.

You can bet Bruce needs permission to wipe his own ar$e at Ashley FC.

I heard Steve Bruce on five live recently and he said his remit from Ashley was to stay in the PL. It's obviously more crucial this season as the proposed takeover is probably dependent on PL status.

But he's nowhere NEAR what is required to be a Premier League manager. We have a decent squad on paper - enough to comfortably finish somewhere between 8th and 12th with the right leadership.

Almost every player has gone backwards under Bruce. He hasn't got the ability to motivate players, hasn't got a plan B ( or A ) and churns out the worst football the premier league is ever likely to see. He said changing Newcastle's style of play can't be done overnight. How long does he want? He's been there 18 months. If he had an ounce of decency about him, he'd resign.

Of course he won't resign. He's a fully paid up member of the "managers merry go round club". Get job, get sack, get paid off: then repeat.

I’ve used your analogy of football managers for years, except mine was the magic roundabout. Got to be magic when you get huge pay offs for being a failure and then within weeks have been given another shot at it at another club. It’s bordering upon corrupt really. Must be nice to be a signed up member of that club!

Villa fan. When he was our manager in the championship we played bottom of the league and had a man sent off around half time. He played the whole of the 2nd half without a recognised striker on the pitch, and we had a great squad for that level. I do not miss his turgid, negative, stifling style of management at all.

Was that Ipswich away when with ten minutes to go we had the ball near their penalty area, all their players were goal side of the ball and we had five (5) players on the half way line.......and they stayed there until the final whistle despite the fact not one Ipswich player ever went near them?

After the game he said "we didn't play defensively"!

Look Steve Bruce’s style of play has never changed.That’s what he is being slated for. Newcastle are a big club with small club mentality. There are “smaller” clubs that have a bigger mentality. Leicester, Southampton etc.
There leadership from the top is what makes the difference. That won’t change til Mike Ashley is gone. Newcastle and there fans deserve better.

Its the other way around. Newcastle are a small club which fans pretend is a big club in hiding. My memory stretches back to 1955 & they've won one cup since. In those 65 years there's been 10 years max when they've performed well in the top league. The other 55 years have been a struggle. It isn't underperforming- its the status quo in a club usually with a 2nd rate squad, manager, owner.

Its not personal. The average hard working Geordie merely wants to see their team go out on a "Saturday afternoon" and play with a similar amount of effort. The team's workrate is atrocious, we are out-run, out muscled and out thought by inferior opposition players. Sadly the managers ambition mirrors that of the club owner and this filters down into the team who look utterly lost. Bruce Out!!!

Steve Bruce is out of his depth at PL level. He's a decent Championship Manager at best. Just take a look at the team performance stats for this season. Newcastle are very lucky to be in the position they are at the moment.

Anyone could see he picked the wrong team against Sheffield utd. Never rated him! He's in the same category as Sam allardyce and Mark Hughes,Tony pulis. They have had there time,different era but still manage to steal a job.

These are the exact same performances that being churned when rafa was in charge, newcastle fans idolise rafa though, he was losing games, possession sitting under 40 percent most games, lucky if they managed 5 shots a game, bruces team has spirit and structure, they'll finish comfortably above the relegation zone which is perfect for Newcastle, so i really don't see newcastle fans issue.

We don’t claim to be a big club. We don’t expect to win the league or the champions league. We don’t expect to win. We don’t expect anything other than the ambition to win games. We do expect a manager to try and put a balanced team out to try and win a game. SB isn’t the big problem here that’s MA. But SB has also done poor with the assets he has at his disposal!

Bruce has always been worked from the back at this club.

I have no doubt he is being blamed for decisions he is not actually making.

Whatever happens there will happen and the "fans", like all fans of all clubs, have no influence or any say because that's not their function.

Toon Army call themselves the most loyal but change from one result to the next.

Funny manager Bruce. Pretty good at getting results and very good in the transfer market (Robertson, Maguire, McGinn). But arguably belongs to an era of football that has passed. Negative tactically, not pleasing on the eye. Newcastle need to be careful, you could find a Hasenhüttl, or go for Howe but have they got the players to be more expansive. Bruce moaned a lot at Villa too.

Newcastle will not go down even with Steve Bruce in charge they are a huge club and their presence is good for the Premiership similar to Leeds. Easy to say new manager please but it has been the same tale for many years. For some reason Covid appears to have caused a season where managers are not going to be dismissed no matter what except unlucky Slaven Bilic whose sacking was surely political.
