Bruce mocks unhappy NUFC fans & defends Mike Ashley in shameful new interview – Listen here

During an appearance on talkSPORT, Steve Bruce has mocked a “so-called” ant-Ashley protest held by “12 people” following Rafa Benitez’s exit – saying he’s confident fans will ‘stand behind their team’ instead of boycotting.

Having no doubt been briefed by Keith Bishop Associates, Bruce showed a complete disregard for the current mood of the fanbase – and the fact he also suggests the issues at the club have been ‘blown out of proportion’ is another insult to us Newcastle fans.

Is he going to promote a boycott? Of course not, but almost mocking the fact few turned up at an initial demonstration outside of St James’ Park following Rafa’s exit does little to prove his ‘Geordie’ status – and goes a long way to proving he is Mike Ashley’s puppet after all.

Here’s what he said during his chat to talkSPORT last night:

It is nothing personal against Bruce, but his record speaks for itself, and this interview does little to suggest he is anything other than a yes man.

Stating that we were ‘only in the Championship two years ago’ is another foolish comment, mind. It’s as if it serves as an early warning to keep expectations low, despite the fact we had a world class manager at the helm in Rafa behind just two months ago!

Wake up Steve – we were in the Championship because of Mike Ashley, we lost Rafa because of Mike Ashley and fans have a right to protest because of guess who? Mike Ashley!

I know Bruce is probably trying to get fans on side after accepting a job that was going to be a poisoned chalice for any man replacing Rafa Benitez, but his praise of Mike Ashley combined with the disregard he’s shown towards unhappy NUFC fans leaves a sour taste in my mouth – especially coming from a man who’s adamant he’s not a ‘puppet’.

Our club is sleepwalking into the abyss and slowly sinking as we allow newly promoted clubs to come into the league and immediately show more ambition to overtake us.

23 years ago today we paid a world record fee for Alan Shearer of £15m.

Who knows what he would be worth in today’s market but one thing is for sure, he would not be joining Newcastle United under this regime.

  1. More rubbish from this site, he was just saying how it was, all this site does is try to stir it up. True fans will be there, don’t need you people ,just stay away.


  2. I just really can’t be bothered anymore I’ve been walking away from this club since sir bobby was sacked for finishing fifth ! And like al Pacino from godfather they just keep pulling me back in ! But honestly lately I just don’t have the same draw back or spark towards the club anymore and just reading the latest interviews with ash and Bruce and I am more and more confident in my beliefs that it’s all done on purpose! And no amount of 40 million pound signings is gonna bring my feelings towards this club back !
