Fat waste of space, tactically inept cabbage head Steve Bruce sacked by Newcastle United

If reports are to believed I can't understand how Howe is even in the same conversation with Fonseca and Farve. Literally the only advantage he has is experience in the league. And sure he had Bournemouth playing some decent stuff and kept them up for a few years, but he also spent a fair bit of money and took them down.  


Jamie Redknapp’s brother Mark rents one of Eddie Howe’s homes…

 

Harry Redknapp is a bit of a mentor to Howe….signed him as a player for Pompey..

 

Jamie & Harry known to be on very friendly terms indeed with Jamie Reuben..

 

Wether this means that Howe is Reuben’s choice for our new coach & it is him feeding stuff to the press eg this https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/eddie-howe-discussions-newcastle-steve-25244816 is impossible to say but it all sort of fits… #southcoastmags/sandbanksmafia :cuppa:

I don't think he'd steady the ship, that's the trouble. I've said it before but Rafa would be the ideal man for our current predicament, it's a shame he seems to have principles unlike a few others I could mention. Shelvey would jump off the Tyne bridge if Rafa came back. :lol:

I’d like nothing more than Rafa to come back and finish what he started, but as you say, he’s not going to break his word to Everton. 
 

I honestly have no idea who we’ll end up with after Bruce, but whoever it is can’t be any worse than the Baconmeister.

Listening to Chris Waugh on the Athletic podcast talking about why Bruce hasn't been given the sack and it makes a lot of sense tbh.

 

They reckon all of the coaching staff he brought in (considering all of Rafas were dumped when he left) would be leaving too, meaning when Bruce went we'd literally only have Graeme Jones as a coach and no one else. Which is why Jones as caretaker isn't really seen as a viable option.

 

If it then took a couple more weeks or however long to get a manager you're looking at trying to get a club to survive in the PL with one coach, maybe bringing harper back from the academy to help out. Which is considered too great a risk.

 

Paying out 8 million for Bruce and more for his coaching staff and not having an actual successor manager and coaches in line is likely seen by PIF as too risky, so Bruce will be here until we have his replacement signed.

Someone needs to have a good honest chat to our Jamaal to let him know that he's not nearly as good as he thinks he is, especially given he seems to have a propensity to blame everyone but himself. Hopefully that's what Hayden was doing. Can't play the ball out, loses his man constantly, is lazy and doesn't close down. He's occassionally a threat from set pieces in attack and is reasonable at winning balls in the air but I'd have Fernandez, Schar and Clark ahead of him as far as being more rounded footballers (in that order). He works in a back 5 only because marking a man isn't as essential. I think Bruce favours him and Clark over Fernandez and Schar simply because they're native english speakers.

 

I wouldn't have Clark anywhere near the first team.  The only reasons for him to be there are that he speaks English and is left-footed.  Not good enough reasons, clearly, and not good enough for the PL.  Should have been sold in the summer, but presumably was given a 15 year contract instead.

That makes a lot of sense. Although, it might leave us a bit short on Steves.

Suppose, if his whole team of useless coaching bastards leaves with him, you need new super duper guy to come in along with his new bunch of absolutely tremendous coaching chaps, more than one guy to line up.

I watched a clip of his Roma team passing it out from the back patiently for ages. 
 

That would be an absolute disaster with our lot. Half of them can’t pass 12 yards or control a ball.

Something like that takes a bit of time and the right players. When Stephen Kenny took over Ireland he tried that at the beginning and it was a disaster. The players were trying to play like world beaters but didn't have the skill levels to match. After a while we reduced the amount of playing around with the ball and the players got a bit more used to it and we actually look half decent knocking the ball around. Given we're in a relegation battle I don't think we'll have the time to introduce such a system. Getting points on the board is the immediate concern and style of football can come later. Hopefully he's a manager flexible enough to realise that if he is the next man in charge.
