    Very surprised they’ve sacked him so early

    Harsh when you compare him to Arteta and Ole and how much they've all spent but he was a bargain basement appointment by a bargain basement owner so not unexpected.

    They should have given him another 1000 years, IMO. At the rate his win rate was increasing, he'd have won a Premier League title by 3021.

    When you strip everything away and look at the actual job Bruce done, it's actually difficult to argue that he wasn't successful. He admitted in an interview today, after his sacking, that his only task was to keep Newcastle in the PL and he done that comfortably in both the full seasons he was there, despite all the noise around him and the lack of support from above. That said, it's clear to see why Newcastle supporters hated him and were desperate to see the back of him. He wasn't simply appointed by an owner who they wanted out, he summed up everything about Ashley's ownership with no ambition to achieve anything other than survival. To make things worse, he was replacing a manager they loved, who stood up to Ashley and had the ambition they shared.

    That’s probably one of the most balanced things you have said about Newcastle, see souness is now sticking his ore in, didn’t realise how much Liverpool fans disliked him now, almost as much as Newcastle fans

    I'm always balanced, I just don't always say things you want to hear.

    As for Liverpool supporters views on Souness, his period as manager and decision to give an interview with a certain newspaper have forever tarnished his standing among our support. He was one of, if not the greatest player to play for the club but will never be held in the same regard as the likes of Dalglish and Gerrard. I don't particularly mind him as a pundit, he's a bit old fashioned but his biggest issue (similar to Keane) is that he cannot understand players not having the same commitment and application that he had. It's why he's particularly critical of Pogba - it visibly frustrates the life out of him that a player with so much talent doesn't put the work in. It's probably why he was more successful as a manager at smaller clubs than he was at Liverpool - if a player simply wasn't good enough he could accept that but when players were good enough but maybe lacked the commitment that he had, he couldn't.

    Served up the worst football I've ever seen us play. Seems selective to single out individual brilliance, etc as our savour the past 2 seasons but we fluked a stupid amount of games after being peppered for the majority of the game. Zero idea how to set up a team in any functional way. Destroyed everything Rafa had built (tough man to replacement obvs as Baz said) and just utterly ******* clueless.

    How embarrassing that he's now playing the victim card, via his lover Luke Edwards, no less. Why do tweets you cannot even see matter? Man Utd twitter and Sky are eating it up, too and as is anyone else that hates us. It took our fanbase too long to turn on him because half of them were too busy saying 'he's done better than Rafa'.

    Hope he retries unless Ole goes.

    Regardless of how bad he was. It is the decision of the board to get rid of him for poor performances. The fans should have been moaning at them. The way he has been treated in this by the media and fans was horrible. In any normal business there would be a tribunal and compo paid out no doubt.

    Yep, criticism is fine. Name calling and abuse is not.

    Wouldn’t surprise me. Spurs are in a weird place since Poch left. The collapse from the season before Poch was sacked to that season was amazing. They need a rebuild. Should have sold Kane and invested the money.

    Oh 100%. It seems to me like there was a "gentleman's" agreement and it wasnt kept. Kane doesnt remotely look like hes interested and his value has plummeted. They'll sack Nuno to take the heat off the people actually running the club higher up.

    Nuno looks toast, agree they should have let Kane go in the summer.
    I wonder if Spurs might act now to go back in for Fonseca before Newcastle sign him? Although he might not be keen given his treatment last time.
