 Steve Bruce sacked

No big surprise. I think they allowed him to get to the 1000 game landmark out of respect.
They were well beaten by a Spurs side that have not set the heather alight but the workrate of the Newcastle players was questionable.




It's bloody tough being a legend

Watched some of the game and the level of player that Newcastle have is pretty poor. Shelvey, Fraser etc are not going to get you in the top half of that league. Feel sorry for Bruce but he`ll get a few million and the pre Christmas job shuffle will be underway soon enough!

Given that money appears to be no object they'd be as well to go for the best of everything, manager, coaches, staff, players etc.
Whether the best in their field would go there is another matter.

I hope they are planning a man city type regeneration.
Starting with training facilities, youth setup coaching staff right through the club.

Itll still be 3 years at an absolute minimum until they are top 4/champions league contenders.
5 years until they can even think about winning the league.
I heard someone say they'll need £300m just to be arsenal or spurs (lol).

They need someone who can build a club and a culture. If I was them I'd be looking at Brendan Rodgers but why would he leave where he is...

"I heard someone say they`ll need £300m just to be arsenal or spurs (lol)."

in what context? Player Quality level? Todatys markets and everyone knowing they apparently have cash to burn that £300m may well only be 3/4 players.

I always feel a bit sad when the good guys get sacked .. mind he has reportedly picked up £8 million

He always came across as a caring guy who never got flustered during the post match interviews regardless of results or leading questions

But his love for the club and his drive and ambition to see it prosper has had its toll on both his own well being and his family`s

Time to retire Steve .. enjoy it ..

They could do a lot worse than trying to get Wenger to lay the foundations. Also, I`m pretty sure that FFP means that their financial muscle isn`t quite like Man City`s was in 2008.

PuP - Yep they need 3-6 players just to be close to the top 4 and with the `rich club premium` they`re going to need to buy smart.

5 years until they even think about winning the league is my guess

3-6 players needed??? You`re having a laugh.
Maybe bar Saint maxipad not one of Newcastle`s first team would make a current top 4 side.

A nothing club just like Everton.

Little in recent times.

93 years since they were champions of the top league, and 66 since they last won the FA Cup.

Otherwise they`ve only won honours at second tier, apart from their last major success, the former Fairs Cup 1968/69.

Again VEE, They have had loads of success, just not recently, it says loads for the club that has won nothing for 50 odd years can still attract average crowds around 50,000.
We will agree to disagree,but one thing for sure they can't be described as a nothing club 😉

10 years from now, they'll be winning everything. To be honest, they have a passionate and loyal following, who can deny them a bit of silverware

I never suggested that.

If they had won the Premier League 95-96 that might have kick started a run of success.

A nothing club like Everton, That is why I stated NUFC are one of the most successful clubs in England, Everton are even more successful 👍

Newcastle United have appointed Eddie Howe to succeed Steve Bruce as the Premier League club`s head coach.

Howe, who has signed a contract until the summer of 2024, has not been in management since he left Bournemouth in August 2020 following relegation.

"This is a wonderful opportunity, but there is also a lot of work ahead of us," Howe told Newcastle`s website.

He takes over with Newcastle 19th in the table, five points from safety after 11 games.

Stupid Appointment in my decision, he will be sacked before this time next year.
They had to go huge or stick, One thing to bring Eddie Howe to Newcastle when they were just another team with great support but no trophies in half a century, or Bring Eddie Howe to Newcastle the richest football team in the world.
Hopefully works out but not holding my breath
