Steve Bruce slams Newcastle.

Cheer up Stevie Bruce.....
Cheer up Stevie Bruce.....
Pancake face Steve Bruce has slammed the way that Newcastle conducted themselves after the 5-1 mauling of Sunderland last weekend.

Bruce claims that there was no need for Newcastle to play ‘Daydream Believer’, a 1967 hit by The Monkees, which prompted the home fans to serenade Sunderland with a much cruder version aimed at Steve Bruce at the final whistle and says that such a move was “typical of our etiquette”.

I’ll get onto Sunderland’s etiquette later on, but at the minute it is Bruce who is being the pantomime dame and not letting things drop. The fact he is sounding off suggests that he is hurting, but the classy move would be to suffer in silence. I’m pretty sure that the Sunderland fans will just want to forget about the match, until January at least, and will want to try to move on and recover from this hammering.

So they could do without bitter Bruce creating a fuss about it really and heaping yet more attention on them. Talking to The Express, Bruce had this to say.

“It was typical of their etiquette. Fortunately I didn’t hear it because I was already inside, but others did. I hope we can repeat the same dosage when they come to our place. It is 71 days to the next derby – not that I am counting. That is a motivating force.”

71 days? Not that anyone is counting though, Steve?

And whilst Bruce is deciding to fling around accusations of people lacking etiquette, I’d quite like to hear why he didn’t bother speaking to Chris Hughton after the match, as indicated by this little comment;

“No, I didn’t speak to him. I had just got him a new contract.”

Class!

Anyway, moving onto the subject of class, I notice that the behaviour of the Sunderland fans when they beat us 2-1 at the Stadium of Light has been completely forgotten. All of those incidents of coin throwing into the away end, the people on the pitch, the DVD’s and commemorative mugs released because of a massive 2-1 victory – the first victory for Sunderland at home against Newcastle in 29 years I hasten to add – all seems to have been forgotten by the bitter bunch.

Also, I was always taught that leaving halfway through lunch was rude, so what is the excuse the Sunderland fans have for that? Pathetic.

Whatever happens, it’s nice to know that we have rattled them, and hopefully Bruce’s bitterness will cloud his judgement and ruin their season.

One thing I know for certain, even now, with 71 days to go or whatever it is, is that our players won’t roll over like those in the red and white strip did on Sunday.

Now, one more time…..

  1. added spice should make it more of a game now then at their place, Chrisy will have them ready, with a big fat new contract burning a hole in his pocket

  2. c’mon Daverism, surely they will be more up for it the next game? With the humiliating bashing they took here, but more importantly, how embarrassing their performance was for their fans, they will come at us all guns blazing.

    Should make for a good game, if I was Sky, I would be all over it (if it already isn’t on)

  3. Don’t forget Toonsy’s article regarding Mackem blogs giving it the big I am before the 5-1 hammering so let’s not give them reason to throw eggs in our faces!!

    I personally will into the away game like I did the home…shitting myself & hoping we don’t get beat although I’ll add a defeat that can’t be considered a total pasting like our beautiful 5-1 mauling of the mackems!!!

  4. Love it love it love it.Is,nt it nice to know that we really worked it up em so much it,s caused so much grief. Their problem is that they,re so up their own ar*e that they couldn,t see it coming. I have a shrewd suspicion that the Stad-des-hite may well witness another :bad day at the office; on Jan 16th when we dump on them again in their own back yard. Come on you SMB,s, any takers……..?

  5. The best thing he/she could have done was draw a line under it and talk about the weekends matches, By raking over old ground he has put added pressure on their rabble come january.

    Like Lee Ryder said their reaction in that 2-1 two seasons back showed their class didnt it… :roll:

  6. Bizarre statements from Bruce, on one hand slating our lack of ettiquete and on the other saying he hopes the SMB’s do the same to us at the SoS
    He’s obviously completely lost it as his useless team have, enjoyed Enriques comments about how many millions mackems have spent and they’re still sh!te

  7. Bruce should focus on his next game rather than try to find how to revenge us . Did he know what the mckems did to us when we relegated ? Poor Bruce.

  8. Apart from a game in 1990 and another in 1986, I haven’t been to SJP since 1973. So I love seeing clips of the Toon singing. Thanks for that, Toonsy. Still laughing.

  9. Bris – SJP has changed a bit since ’73 though mate ;)

    It was nice to have an atmosphere for once. It doesn’t happen too often nowadays.

    No doubt the crowd will start off ok against Blackburn but tail off if we aren’t 3 goals up in the first five minutes :roll:

  10. Readers,

    Regarding the Steve Bruce comment regarding playing of the ‘Daydream Believer’ song as a demonstration of Newcastle United’s etiquette, he is quite correct.

    If it is one thing that remains intact it is the Geordie sense of humour.

    Sunderland AFC add fuel to the Geordie cause in pretty much everything they do;
    Roker Park = Joker Park
    Stadium of Light = Stadium of *@#!
    Buying Titus Bramble
    Employing a Geordie to manage their club…it goes on.

    For the one time anthem of the man with the Monkees Heed! to be played as 50,000 Geordies are celebrating a fantastic triumph in football, local bragging rights, local stature, you name it, at the end of a deserved spectacle of thumping Sunderland AFC what would anyone expect.

    A big thank you to Steve for prolonging the agony that everyone on wear side must be going through and his affirmation that the Geordies have also managed to get thoroughly underneath his skin.

    Cheers to that!

    John McCann.

  11. Aye, a few things’ve changed since 1973. I used to sing with Boot Boys in the Leazes end.

    Back then we weren’t referred to as the Toon – when did that start btw? and Sunderland weren’t referred to as Mackems – when did that start?

    Hope to be there for late April next year.

  12. Fantastic, Bruce is a mackem after all!

    Have ppl also read the supporters trusts latest garb? Apparantly shepherd is trying to buy us in a consortium, who cod wipe the £90million debt away forthright new FIFA regs. As no1 has denied it flat, it’s true!! Wondered how long this would start to happen again, but may be the reason for nit giving houghton a contract and what better time to sell

  13. Aww, poor Brucie’s really lost the plot a bit. He should have kept schtum until totally calm, then just shown a bit of class himself and talked about the next game.

    And yep, I think we’ll stuff ’em at the Stade-de-Shaaiiite too. Praps not 5-1, but we’ll do ’em.

    All I can ask for is that those who do get tickets sing Daydream Believer constantly and loudly throughout. It’s only fair and proper etiquette.

  14. Bris – ‘Toon’ got jumped on by Sky, and it rubbed off from there.

    As for ‘Mackems’, that is fairly recent, sometime in the 80’s I believe.

  15. Quote of the century from a love supreme…

    “I’m not one for leaving games early, but when you see Kevin Nolan dancing around like a chicken and your five nil down you know it’s time to leave”

    :lol:

  16. John McCann – eloquently put, sah.

    Raffo: stop stirring, man!

    Brucie: go smoke some green, chill out, and get on with kicking your over-paid squad right up the hoop. They totally let you down and need a size 12 where their hamsters roam.

  17. I’ve recently found out that our CEO is a mackem. Very surprising – he’s a decent, funny, intelligent bloke who runs this place very well. And he’s a knight of the realm, if that means anything these days. So out of all the mackems ever born, there’s now him and Kate Adie to balance out the rest…

    The only time you get any hint of an accent from our boss is when he’s really, really angry. Which doesn’t happen often!

    I’ve not seen him this week; praps he’s in a darkened room somewhere regaining his composure. I do hope he doesn’t come past my desk; it’s got that pic of the baby ape from Toonsy’s article yesterday on the PC screen!

  18. Whumpie – Apparently it was his elected celebration. They all have one apparently. The chicken dance was what Nolan got because it is apparently how another member of the team dances.

    On a sidenote, I see Batty’s business empire is kicking on and going up in the world…

    Ignore the ad at the start ;)

  19. hahaha geordie jeans, loved that when it was on, the geordie jumpers on is good too.

    Toonsy, since we were linked with that Legear bloke the other day, ever thought about maybe putting a list together on players we’re linked with over christmas and Janurary?

    Would be canny funny to look back at it when the window is closed and see how many players we were actually linked with.

  20. Bruce knows alot about class . Ask the Palace and Brum fans.Soon as someone offered him a couple of quid extra he was off quicker than a mackem leaving SJP.He also said when he left Wigan he can now shop at Harrods instead of Tescos,then proceeded to buy cattermole,bramble,try to get n’zogbia,figuroa,and Kirkland,what a class act.Mr Bruce never liked you never will and hope you choke on your sour grapes,but thanks for the laughs.

  21. Brucie says: ” I hope we can repeat the same dosage when they come to our place.” ….

    He wants us to beat them 5-1 again??? :-)

    Good lad Brucie, that’s the spirit!!

  22. After the first time in years of thinking Brucey had the right idea in not whining post match he follows it with this sh*te. Come on Steve, lead Sunderland into administration and relegation and tell us it had been your master plan all along! Might get yourself a bit of respect then :).

  23. Toonsy, I’ve not been on for a while due to uni commitments over the last few weeks, but I’ve just taken the time to pop on and have a read of your excellent previous blog. I’ve been scrolling through the mackem comments for a while now and having a bit of a laugh, and I found a quote from one of em just after Bramble was given his marching orders;

    “F**k it. Take the 10 off and forfeit the match Bruce. Spare us the embarrassment”

    How satisfying is that? Still buzzing from the win!

  25. Uh-oh – sounds like someone’s lost the plot.

    I reckon this mauling has seriously knocked the stuffing out of the SMB’s. Expecting another defeat for them this weekend.

    Waaaahhaaahhaaahhaaa!!! :lol:

  26. How pathetic to object to fans singing, if he went to SJP in the 70s as he says, he will have heard a lot worse, lack of class? i think that applies to his statement more than anything.

  27. I know it’s off topic, but I just read that Olssen is out injured for West Brom until near Christmas. I know we shouldn’t revel in another’s misfortune, but considering we play them on the 5th December this is great news for us. He has been a BRICK WALL for them over the last 12 months or so, and he handled Carroll superbly last season. Also, I can see them conceding more goals and dropping a few more points now events have transpired to remove his calming presence from their back four. Hopefully it will break their momentum.

  28. So they could do without bitter Bruce creating a fuss about it really and heaping yet more attention on them. Talking to The Express, Bruce *REALLY* had this to say.

    “It was typical of their superiority. Fortunately I didn’t hear it because I got away quick enough, but others, like those fans that stayed, did. My only hope is we can repeat the same dosage when they come to our place, because it is 71 days to the next derby – not that I am counting. Quinn does that for me. That is a motivating force… To not get hammered again.”

  29. we have had a good time giveing the scum some stick,but lets give a big hand to n.Qwinn for joining wor bobbys fund and to the s/land fan who has raised £30000 for the fund,good on them imo

  30. “I had just got him a new contract.”

    I rather think it is Chris Hughton who will get himself a new contract. What a pathetic, insuffererably arrogant and self important thing for Steve Bruce to say. He even makes that other prick, Allardyce, look humble there. What a stupid, deluded little man he really is.

  31. “I had just got him a new contract.”

    Was that meant tongue in cheek because we tonked his piss poor excuse of a “football club” or did this fat clown think he has the respect and authority to make Ashley and Llambias heed his advice…

  32. If any mackem brings this up then please remind them about their behaviour towards Joey Barton in 07/08. They were throwing all sorts of stuff at him while he was warming up on the touchline.

  33. Oh Bruce, you sad, fat plastic b@stard. The fact he is clutching at straws such as this is embarrassing. His blatant contradictions throughout the interview whilst trying to sit on his morale high horse, embarrassing. His comments about sealing hoots’ new contract, pathetic and embarrassing.
    Take yourself back to Pennywell with the rest of the tramps and wonder how the hell you’re ganna prevent us turning you over again on your home turf. The song to finish was hilarious. Also “I didn’t hear it, others did”..I can see it now “here, gaffer, theyre signing about you being a mackem b@stard or something..just thought I’d say”. Hahaha :D

  34. to be fair guys I think he was kinda taking the p*ss outa himself when he said ‘I’d just got him a new contract’, it was clearly tongue in cheek. However, he is still a complete tool and to say it was typical of ‘their etiquette’ to play that song seems a rather lowly thing to come out with. Cheer up Stevie!

    “to be fair guys I think he was kinda taking the p*ss outa himself when he said ‘I’d just got him a new contract’, it was clearly tongue in cheek.”

    No, it was a complete insult to Chris Hughton.

  36. Hes obviously Completly forgotten the behavior of fans last time they beat us st the SOS last time aswell. Their lot were out their seats, hoying stuff at the likes of Barton and the stewards did a terrible job. Why? Because they were celebrating the goals with the rest of the tramps!..needs to refresh his memory before mouthing off like.

  37. Didn’t make it clear in my last post that obviously I’m aware Bruce wasn’t manager for the last derby, more talking about the game in general. They milk a win like any team would so to expect us to not rub in an absolute hammering is naive. First season back from the CCC, blunderland claiming they’re the north east’s no1 and we put 5 past them. Of course we’re going to take the p!ss man!

  38. Ice – All went well. Back up to two week vists again now but I have to some tablets in the meantime to try and boost my immune system.

    Worky – Check your e-mail you little scamp ;)

  39. TOONSY thats a bit better news mate,being sitting waiting for a post all afternoon :),will go for food now in peace!

  40. To Whumpie @ 25 Not sure, but for some reason I thought Nolan’s ‘chicken dance’ celebration was something to do with ‘Red Bull gives you wings’!

  41. Sorry if I’m going over old ground, but been out of circulation all week. The reason why Bruce is caving in is that he knows this is his last “big” job in football. Mark my words, this result is the beginning of the end for the turkey as a manager. he’s toast, and good riddance to him…classless makkem…

    Steve Bruce manager og Gateshead FC in 2013…(no disrespect to Gateshead)…

  42. Munich mag

    I think hes putting more pressure on them lot for the return mathc, He obviously hasnt seen our away performances which have been some of the best all round displays ive seen in my time certainly Everton away was outstanding from 1 to 11 (number 37 werent half bad like :( ) and West Ham wasnt far behind.

  43. CC I agree mate, our away for him has been good, we’ll see what the makkems have to offer next time round.
    Needless to say, the atmosphere will be HOT, but Pancake Face Bruce will hopefully be a pundit on radio makkem by the time the game comes round… Wow if CH had been given half the money Bruce has wasted we’d be in great shape now..

  44. Faut pas oublier que beaucoup des gens qui ont ce genre de mini-voitures sont parfois paralysés ou n’ont que très peu de contrôle de leurs jambes. Pas tous, hein, y aussi des cons fegnasses mais quand même. J’adore la tête de la mémé en tout cas !
