Allardyce knocks back Newcastle approach

That was Steve Harmison, the former cricketer and Newcastle fan. Detests Ashley and speaks like a supporter. Bruce will probably let his heart (and the money) rule his head and take the job.
That's the fella. Big Sam wasn't too happy. Saying Harmy had been hoodwinked by the young European managers

That's the consequences of having a big greasy fat inhumane bastard running your football club.

No offence intended to Newcastle as a club I wish them nothing but luck in their battle to oust the fat wretch.

Big man wasn't too happy when some Geordie called Harmy said that Bruce and Allerdyce aren't the answer and they need to go for a yound progressive type like Derby have gone for in Cocu.
Apparently they tried the young upcoming manager route but both Gerrard and Viera told them to bolt.
Now big Sam has told them to bolt too.
They really are scraping the barrel and it’s either going to be someone out of work and desperate for a job (Hughes) or someone with an emotional connection to them ala Bruce.
Either way they are fucked, no one decent is gonna touch them.
They may as well take Pardew back as he is apparently still getting paid.
It’s nice to see that people are starting to wake up to toxic Fatty and giving him a wide Berth.

Bruce makes sense for Ashley. He'll be very easy to deal with. I can't see him kicking up a fuss the way Rafa (rightly) did. He'll probably just feel very fortunate to be the Newcastle manager and will accept whatever comes his way. I suspect the Newcastle fans are in for an awful season. Another relegation may be the final straw.

Its the fans I feel sorry for. Manager from bottom if the barrel, late in transfer window, naff given to spend, manager gone Christmas when their bottom. New inexperienced coach as manager, still no transfer kitty, relegated, prospective sale called off.

As so the wheel spins at that club.

Ashley is toxic

Bruce has done well since took over at Wednesday, almost got to play offs. Why go to poisoned chalice at Newcastle where clearly Ashley calls the shots. Great support at Newcastle but won nowt since 'Fairs cup in 1969. There are other options out there such as David Moyes, Di Matteo, Chris Hughton but are there funds available. Just sold Perez, Rondon was on loan and young talent Sean Longstaff a target for Manure (who isn't)

And if Andy Penman had scored a penalty in the first leg, might not have won a trophy since 1955

He's go there because he's a massive Mag. The only way a manager of even average pedigree would take the job at Newcastle at the minute would be because they're a Newcastle fan. Lucky for Ashley that Steve Bruce exists.

Not so lucky for their fans like
