Steve Bruce the New Favourite for Newcastle Utd Job – and Fans Are Furious July 9, 2019

Steve Bruce is the new favourite to become the next Newcastle United manager this afternoon – and Magpies fans aren’t exactly over the moon.

The Premier League side are looking for a new boss after the club’s owner Mike Ashley failed to reach an agreement with Rafa Benitez to extend the Spaniard’s contract, and yesterday we told you how Chelsea legend John Terry had been mentioned as a potential dark horse for the role.

But, according to Ladbrokes and Paddy Power, Bruce is now the favourite to take the reins at St. James’s Park, with the Geordie now priced at 9/4 to takeover from Benitez.

Currently in charge of Sheffield Wednesday, Bruce isn’t exactly the most popular man around Newcastle after his failed spell in charge of Sunderland, and a glance at social media suggests he wouldn’t be particularly welcome back in the North East:

Steve Bruce is a big win for Ashley cause he's also agreed to do the big delivery on Northumberland Streets Sports Direct on Wednesdays

Newcastle parting ways with Rafa Benitez thinking they can do better and ending up with Steve Bruce has to be the best metaphor for #Brexit I've seen so far.

A Steve Bruce appointment is one way to guarantee no-one turns up for the first home game of the season.
