I thought I couldn’t despise Steve Bruce more, then he went and did this…

The full-time whistle went at Old Trafford and I sunk into my sofa, knowing what a big opportunity we’d missed to beat a Man Utd side WELL below their best. I look up to my TV screen and what did I see? Steve Bruce enjoying a good old laugh with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

As gutting as the 3-1 loss to Manchester United was by itself, the feeling after the match was not helped by the images of Bruce that quickly followed the confirmation of the result.

Being the perennial loser that he is, Steve Bruce was filmed laughing and grinning with opposition manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as he and the team left Old Trafford’s pitch. Who knows what they were talking about but this was not the look of a man particularly bothered by the defeat.

Newcastle fans hardly need any more evidence to prove how much Bruce is both out of his depth as Premier League manager and someone who couldn’t give a toss of how we’re doing but these pictures really hammer home how much he actually cares about our club.

Fact is, Steve Bruce is used to losing. He’s made a career out of losing and it’s fitting that he marks his 850th game as a manager with a loss because that’s all he knows.

Managers need not be bad losers after a match but you expect them to be visibly disappointed and, especially in Bruce’s position, concerned about the situation you are in after losing a match that you had a good chance of winning.

If the script had been flipped and Newcastle had won 3-1, do you think Solskjaer would be happy and laughing away? I would put good money on him not doing because he actually cares about the club he’s managing and he wants to win.

Steve Bruce loses as a career and he is continuing doing so as Newcastle manager.

  1. Steve Bruce cares more than most, was a very successful captain at the same club as Solskjaer and shared a discussion with Solskjaer at that moment, who also was laughing at this point. There was no time before or after he was even smiling…taken completely out of context

  2. Oh don’t be such a child!!!

    Bruce can have a chat with a very good, very old friend and have a laugh without in any way reflecting on his dedication to the club.

    If you can’t figure that out, you really should not have unsupervised access to the internet.

  3. When Bruce is being paid to represent NUFC – i don’t want him laughing with the opposition’s manager immediately after a defeat (!?)

    One has also to question the sub’s Bruce made = not one’s that would get us back in the game…

    …and actually looked like OK tonight no one expected NUFC to win SO LET’S JUST ROLL OVER and give them the points

    The Clown has to GO – ASAP – WE NEED A MANAGER & someone that care’s

  4. Carry out a Google search using theses words – steve bruce louise taylor tactics
    Look at the first result and take note of the date and the points made about tactics, substitutions and signings.
    It tells you everything about SB as a Manager.

  5. Like mentioned – completely out of context

    What really happened was Solskjaer had remarked – HOW THE F_CK DID YOU BLAG A MANAGERS JOB you piss soaked clown!

    Tell you one thing I’ve figured out Helen – you read this blog a LOT for someone who is yet to post a comment that isn’t slating the writer on one of our articles! 😆
