“What is a club anyway?” Bobby Robson wasn’t the first to ask, but he was the most Newcastle-centric and terrible prosecution of modern football.
“It’s not a building or a director, the people paid to represent it. It’s not a television contract, departure clause, marketing department, or executive box. It’s noise, passion, sense of belonging, pride in your city. ”
To get rid of those elements – passion, pride, fame
Sports Direct Arena St. James’ Park – Explaining how we got to today’s place. It alleviates the reason why the fan base has fallen into moral conflict and is cautiously hoping for a new dawn, but is unable to properly celebrate Mike Ashley’s departure and the end of the era-defined by demotion. A spectacle of a player using Willy Bin as ice, and a bath at the training ground.
With some twisted Stockholm Syndrome, some have given up fighting Ashley, a millionaire who has made one of Britain’s most enthusiastic football cities almost indifferent. Steve Bruce somehow became a villain in the theater he arrived in 2019 and established himself as a “local hero” yelling at Tannoy.
Born in Corbridge, just 16 miles away, he undoubtedly burned those bridges when he took up the Thunderland post more than a decade ago, long before he set foot on his dream job.
In addition, the accusation against Bruce had nothing to do with his Jordy qualifications. Fans were desperately left behind due to his lack of solidarity, his seemingly willing acceptance of the agenda set by Ashley. The Newcastle coach was always weak during his miserable tenure, but at least Rafael Benitez sympathized, counterattacked and eventually left when he realized he was defeated.
Somewhere in all this was football. Newcastle is in 19th place and has not won the match. Their defensive record is very poor, comparable only to Norwich City, and there are still Tottenham, Arsenal, Leicester, Liverpool and Manchester City to play in the next 11 games.
During a 2-2 draw with Southampton, when a fan said, “I want to get Blue Sea,” he replied: As everyone thinks, I think the whole thing is very, very disappointing. ”
Last season, the 12th place finish looked fine on paper, but was 14 points away from the top half. Only Sheffield United, West Brom, Crystal Palace and Southampton have admitted more goals.
Unlike the end of the stint at Aston Villa, Bruce hasn’t yet faced the stigma of being thrown cabbage on his way out, but now that the acquisition with the bookmaker has dried the ink, he’s actually Amanda Staveley, the new director, is planning a meeting this week and has rated him as likely to be the manager of the next Premier League.

Odds via Betfair and correct answer as of October 14th
Lampard has been absent from work since he was fired by Chelsea in January. Former England midfielder lasted only 18 months at Stamford Bridge, with the club in 9th place and only one win in five league games. Nonetheless, he won praise for his work with Chelsea youth and helped develop something like Mason Mount (although his hands were forced by a transfer embargo).
The chances of a former Borussia Dortmund boss in Newcastle have dropped dramatically. Former Borussia Mönchengladbach and Nice managers have been absent from work since being dismissed by Dortmund in 2020. He was on the verge of joining the Crystal Palace in the summer, but the Swiss stopped moving due to a late U-turn. I’m dreaming of heading northeast now.
A big coup. Conte met with Tottenham in the summer, but reportedly gnawed at Daniel Levy’s hesitant transfer plan. Italians who won the league in the last three clubs of Inter Milan, Chelsea and Juventus are inevitably given a much higher budget in Newcastle, and the wealth of new owners is less than the wealth of Shakeman Sur in Manchester City. Become.
Gerrard led the Rangers to the first Scottish title since the reorganization, but there was always consensus that his gig at Ibrox was a test run before getting a job in the Premier League. Often touted as the final man to take over from Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp, his time could come earlier if he was willing to engage in survival scrap with Newcastle first. It suggests that.
Rogers’ odds are longer. Especially because it is difficult to procure from Leicester after winning the FA Cup last season. His 48-year-old resume has eight major honors, but he speaks publicly about his commitment to the fox. However, his current team is 13th at the time of the international break.
