It would be fucking brilliant if Bruce turned us down or they couldn’t agree compo, then all other managers they approach do similar. The fat cunt is finally paying for his dog shit behaviour and complete disregard of the club.

It's ludicrous like. 

 

Gerrard

Arteta

Martinez

Viera  

 

were the 4 early favourites. None as exciting as keeping Rafa but they wouldn't have been a disaster. 

 

We decide to pick from the old school British manager stable. 

 

Redknapp

Bruce

Pulis

Pardew 

Hughes 

Mclaren 

Allardyce

 

We've had 3 of the fuckers and they were all shite. Can't believe we are hiring number 4.  They all remind me of that scene in premier passions where Peter Reid gives a half time teamtalk and doesn't mention tactics once. Lots of shouting and swearing and "fucking get into them!". Might have worked in 1995 but we are a quarter of a century past that FFS :lol:

From .com

 


Newcastle's pursuit of Steve Bruce continued on Friday, but Sheffield Wednesday are clearly in no mood to let him leave on the cheap and the issue of compensation remains unresolved.
In addition to a claimed contractual payment of up to £5m, it's claimed that Wednesday are seeking additional recompense for releasing Bruce's two coaches, Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence.
Bruce took training at his current club on Friday and as it stands, will be in charge when the Owls play a friendly at Lincoln City on Saturday.
Could this be any more embarrassing? 

PS: This has some hallmarks of our pursuit of Steve McClaren in 2015, when news of our interest in him mid-season was followed by his Derby County side losing form rapidly and the Rams then sacking him  - McClaren then taking charge at SJP and NUFC avoiding having to pay out any compensation.

It won’t be Pardew. He mugged bitch tits off when he ran off to Palace, Mike Ashley strikes me as a man who doesn’t drop a grudge.

So Sheffield Wednesday want £5 million compo . Ashley's probably offered £1 million

Bit unfair on Hughton. Hes a decent manager and seems a nice bloke. The rest however, have a long list of clubs where they've done fuck all..

 

At this stage I'd sooner have Pards than Allardyce or Bruce. That's how desperate the situation is.

I always thought Hughton was one of the good guys. He stood up to Ashley about the players bonuses which ultimately lead to him being dismissed

You honestly couldn't make this shit up

Reports that the compensation is set at £5million are understood to be on the hefty side but it is more than the £1million that was originally quoted. Wednesday owner Dejphon Chansiri wants substantial compensation for the disruption a move to Newcastle will cause at Hillsborough.

United Managing Director Lee Charnley is seemingly trying to drive a hard bargain with the knowledge that anything spent in compensation could potentially come out of a transfer budget handed to the new boss. As of Friday afternoon, the two sides were still locked in talks.

Aye, but then he almost had to pay compo for McLaren, who knocked us back and he was stuck with Carver, who almost got us relegated, which led to him having to spend money when McLaren eventually came, and then we were relegated which the fat bitch has been whinging about since through his various mouth pieces. I just don’t see it being Pardew with that history. 

 

I do love that article says Charnley is “trying to drive a hard bargain” when the fuck will these idiots learn you can’t be aggressive from a position of weakness? There is pretty much 3 weeks until Sheffield start their season, why the fuck would they let Bruce go for anything less than his full compensation? If they’re not going to pay it they need to move on, they don’t have the time to be trying to negotiate with a club. It’s also staggering that they’d even bother, to be frank with this squad and the level of manager Bruce is it’s not like he’d manage that many more points than some no mark like Redfearn.

Ashley must be a fucking arsehole to do business with, because let’s say new owner stumped up the reported 350m..

 

As long as they kept us up, they could skim 20m/30m a season easy off the TV money (if image below figs are correct) for a few years and worse case scenario you would be able to flog us again (if you wanted out) to recoup 200-250m..

 

As long as we were run relatively tight, there would still be a decent wedge left to spend each year (plus any ticket / sponsorship/merch rev).. ashley just doesn’t want to sell, or is a complete wanker to deal with.

From anything I’ve read about him as a businessman he sounds a complete arsehole. It’s suited him well in the retail world where he’s been able to bully suppliers, especially when his low price model pushed Whelan and JJB to a rough spot. The way he’s done business hasn’t transferred well to the football world as the pool of people is fairly small, and it’s hard to strong arm people as they don’t have to sell to him, they can sell to other clubs and it’s not like he can push out that competition. 

 

Saying all that I may be wrong. He’s basically got exactly what he wants, a club that has generally been in the PL and had access to that revenue and advertising potential while throttling the investment in the actual club. This does seem to be a turning point mind and his treatment of Rafa may have been a massive mid step (obviously it’s one from our/a football standpoint) as this 3 year shit housery towards a massively respected manager has seemingly made others take note and they’ve stepped away from NUFC whereas in the past they may have seen it as a possibly stepping stone despite Ashley being a pain.

 

Either way I sincerely hope for the blokes downfall. I’m fucking thrilled members of the SD board are turning on him, and JD sports coming in a cleaning up all the suppliers of the premium level sports wear meaning Ashley’s stores are only left with the bottom tier shite which has also seen JD sports revenue far surpass his bampy chain.

Didn't mean it to be harsh on Hughton, mentioned him because he's another out of worker.
