Steve Bruce has lost the plot.
It’s been clear for some time that he’s been out of his depth, both on and off the field, and it seems he’s now snapped after being asked a few difficult questions after yesterday’s 4-1 defeat at Old Trafford.
Not only did he refuse to give a proper response to a journalists asking for his thoughts on the ‘Bruce out’ chants coming from the away end, he unleashed a quite incredible rant at Lee Ryder.
After defending his decision to go on holiday during the international break, he then claimed The Chronicle were partly to blame for ‘the way we are’ – ‘we’ being the Newcastle fans who have apparently been brainwashed by the paper’s negativity!
Watch his unbelievable outburst below:
Bruce’s response to ‘Bruce out’ chants at Old Trafford:
“What can I say to that?
“What do you want me to say?! I’m delighted about it?
“I can’t comment on that, I’m sorry.”
Bruce when asked if he went on holiday leading up to the game:
“Oh wow…go on.
“Do you think I really need to answer that to you, Lee?
“That’s what the fans are asking, are they?
“We have trained all week and we were in every day.
“The preparation was meticulous.
“Let me tell you. There is nothing more in preparation…
“What was I supposed to do? We had six of them away.
“The preparation was fine and we have been in all week.
“You could see the game plan was what we worked to.
“To have to answer questions like that is typical to the question I would get off you – and your newspaper.
“If I am being brutally honest.
“That’s why they are the way they are, the way you are and your negativity constantly…and your newspaper.”
