Bruce is Sunderland's New Big Man!
Well, listening to Niall Quinn as he humiliated Sbragia on Sunday, I had visions of Blunderland appointing a top continental manager or a really clever choice like Jol or Woy Hodgeson. But no, Niall was anxious to elbow Sbragia aside in order to appoint...Steve Bruce!
It suddenly all makes sense doesn't it? Blunderland need a top manager to take them to the next level, a man experienced at spending big transfer budgets and managing top players with huge egos. They need a man who has achieved regular finishes in the top half of the Premiership and a record of winning trophies. So the obvious candidate is clearly...Steve Bruce!
Yes Steve Bruce! You know, the guy who took Birmingham down once and who would have led them to relegation a second time if he hadn't jumped ship to Wigan like the rat that he clearly is! Yes, the same Steve Bruce, whose Wigan's side was in pole position to qualify for Europe at the beginning of February before they fell away pathetically to finish 8 points off seventh place. The same Steve Bruce who cannot manage Zaki and who has had falls outs with other "big name" players over the years. And the same Steve Bruce who supports...Newcastle United!
Perhaps they should put up a welcoming banner at the Stadium of Enlightenment, carrying this delicious quotation from the new Big Man to replace the loyal and devoted Ricky Sbragia:
"I have always been a Newcastle lad and when I was a kid, I crawled under the turnstiles to get in to try and save a bob or whatever it was. They were my team, I went to support them as a boy and being a Geordie it's in-bred in you, you follow the club still the same today."
Blunderful, absolutely Blunderful!
