When Amanda Stabley and Murdad Godussi were found on the club’s training grounds on Monday, many expected that a “face-to-face discussion” with Steve Bruce would end with him being given a bag.
Almost all media outlets and local journalists report that it’s only a matter of time before he’s released from work, and many say new owners get sour from being in the dugout on Sunday. He says he doesn’t want that.
All the signs showed that Graham Jones was the caretaker manager of the Spurs clash at St. James’s Park this weekend, but if Bruce didn’t go today, Bruce would still be here. There is a real fear that it might be.
He and his players have been confirmed to be off today, giving the new owner a great chance to trigger before the team train on Friday and Saturday.
After all, if he doesn’t play on Sunday, can he take on the task of tomorrow’s penultimate training session and press conference? That’s the general opinion on social media and I tend to agree.
So what are we waiting for? Now, the Times were given a green light yesterday by Amanda Staveley and fellow UK-based board members (Meldad Godussi and Jamie Reuben) from PIF Governor Yasel al-Lumayan to dismiss Steve Bruce. I made it clear that I had to.
The first full week as an owner of Newcastle United may explain the constant demand for “patience,” but there seems to be a delay in this regard. To the bystander.
Today feels like a day of deciding whether he will go, so we should expect Steveley to receive all the important calls from Saudi Arabia and give them to dismiss Steve Bruce.
Luke Edwards (The Telegraph) reported last night that the uncertainty surrounding Bruce’s near future was disturbing his coach staff. An important match this weekend.
Personally, I don’t think there is any benefit to anyone that Bruce is still in charge this weekend. It’s perfectly understandable to take the time to prepare for his long-term replacement, but why it’s incredibly unpopular within St. James’s Park and ready to celebrate this exciting new first game. Do you wait a long time to fire a man who can calm a few fans who are made? Sunday era.
Not only that, I feel like Graham Jones has a talented caretaker manager.
He won’t answer for more than two weeks, but with zero wins in seven games this season under his current head coach, he won’t get any worse and is free to submit some fresh ideas. I can.
If Steve Bruce doesn’t go today, he can almost guarantee he will survive in his 1000th game this Sunday.
Sadly, when we were 19th in the league, we were very reluctant to start this new era with no wins throughout the season and Mike Ashley’s substandard appointments still on the scene. At one point, there is no emotional time.
