    I honestly don’t think Bruce reviews anything. He doesn’t analyse anything. It’s the only explanation for him never learning. And he never will - because he never seeks to.

    Ashley has proven that where football is concerned, he is out of his depth.

    My question is wtf is Charnley doing?

    Of course it does mate. Rafa had ambition. Wasn’t a yes man.

    Bruce doesn’t know what ambition is. Is a yes man and just wants the money! So won’t say a dicky.

    Three times he’s ****ed this up, getting relegated twice. He cannot and will not learn. Ironically just like his manager. And his MD.

    Some are saying he was furloughed. And I could believe that aswell.

    He literally needs to be kidnapped and interrogated: I agree - wtf is he doing? Why is he not being simply better? Blows my mind.

    However this time as @captain wrong has stated he had a bid on the table and wasn’t expecting to be here this time.

    He needs to be buried in a field.

    Sounds like Ashley is trying to get the takeover done ASAP so won't sack Bruce. It's like Ashley to leave him there and make it the consortium's problem.

    Just another gamble. He's failed at every other gamble - Bruce, McLaren, Kinnear, "SD Arena", etc. - but I'm sure this time it'll work......<doh>

    As Chaos rightly says, one thing completely ****s this club up - relegation. The only bet worth having here is that we'll get relegated, because Ashley is the footballing opposite of King Midas.

    Charnley should be at the training ground, interviewing players, advising Ashley that "we've been here before, we should try something different", and so on. But then we've never acted professionally in 14 years - the chance of suddenly starting now when he's finally trying to get out is zero.

    There's no such thing as failure, you're just finding ways of how not to do it. Show me someone who's never failed and I'll show you someone who hasn't learned anything. The sad thing with Bruce is he's continued not to learn from previous experiences, which by definition is the first sign of madness, continuing to do the same things over and over again expecting one day to get a different result.

    He also knows the salary Bruce's on is so low that he can't afford it won't afford anyone good

    Convinced that Bruce is trying to get himself sacked.

    Bruce could yet get a few wins and all of a sudden the sun will shine from his arse again.. This next 4 games will decide whether he is sacked or not

    If Bruce is trying to get sacked why doesn’t he just present Ashley with a club strategy that includes transfers that can improve the first team, propose additional funding in our youth system, upgrade the training facilities, develop a global scouting network and employ specialist coaches to help with coaching!!

    That kind of forward thinking is guaranteed to get you sacked at NUFC....

    I would rather he win us games than us go down, but I think he's a bit confused. He reckons losing his rag and roaring at them in the dressing room will solve the issue, but fundamentally the problem was his tactics were completely and utterly baffling. His yelling that them isn't going to create service for Wilson or have us belting it down the wings, playing players in their preferred positions and relieving pressure on the defense by ensuring our players constantly apply pressure off the ball.

    From day one, the midfield has not just been neglected by a lack of signings, good signings, but also through poor coaching. He hasn't ever done well in that area, even when I thought he was alright we lacked any kind of bite there.

    He's just not good enough. Sack him now, get a reaction, get some points, stay up. It's simple.

    Maybe he's got the hump because he's been told the takeover is done and he's gone ND and all that
