Simon Jordan is at it again.
After cuddling up to Steve Bruce in what he claims to have been an ‘objective’ interview that made the NUFC boss ‘work hard’ live on talkSPORT yesterday morning, he’s fed up with the criticism he and the show have received.
He’s even gone as far as calling Newcastle fans “mouthy little cowards”, admitting he’s starting to dislike us as a club for the way we’ve acted during Steve Bruce’s time at the club – oh the irony!
Watch his latest rant for yourselves below:
Jordan is becoming a walking, talking hypocrite at this point.
He goes big on this idea of holding people to account, yet there was absolutely no evidence of him, Jim White and Danny Murphy asking Steve Bruce some tough questions in yesterday’s one-sided interview.
This isn’t the first time either, with Jordan giving a host of uninformed reasons as to why Steve Bruce has been handed unfair criticism this season.
Going back to March this year, he said these were two reasons ‘Brucie’ has been ‘thrown under the bus’ at Newcastle:
- He’s not been backed by Mike Ashley – claiming he hasn’t been given “all the tools to do the job”.
- The players he’s got aren’t good enough and are just as responsible for the mess we’re in as they “haven’t performed” for him.
Laughable when he’s over £100m spent on him over the past few transfer windows, signing the sort of players Rafa Benitez could’ve only dreamt of in Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin.
Then, back in January, he said this – insisting our current squad is a ‘disgrace’, the reason Bruce could get sacked and a side that would get ‘smashed to smithereens’ if we attempted to play attacking football:
With this laughable viewpoint in mind, why didn’t Jordan question why Bruce hadn’t ‘gone for it’ earlier in the season when Friday night’s win over Leicester proved what these players are capable of when let off their leash and allowed to play attacking football?
