    Benitez officially appointed Dalian Yifang manager. Can’t blame him for wanting an easy couple of years on ridiculous money.

    Derby bringing in Cocu for Lampard is an interesting one. Fair play for them going for a bigger name on the continent, lets see if they give him the time to build.

    So Newcastle appoint Steve Bruce. As a Newcastle-supporting friend said yesterday after the appointment, at least they can look forward to winning a trophy within the next three years.... it will be the Championship, but still... silverware....

    It depends whether another club that potato face Bruce claims to have supported all his life comes in for him. No loyalty this fella.

    Let's be honest, there wouldn't be many people wanting that Newcastle job at the moment.

    Don’t even know what to say. Obviously not happy but might as well try and get behind him.

    Not a good sign where Sky Sports is reporting that he was the 11th choice for the job... and Sam Allardyce was ahead of him.

    As depressed as you are right now, I wouldn't say that's nailed on. Sheff Utd are no hopers, Brighton I think are going to be in trouble with their new manager, Saints will have the same relegation battle they always have, Norwich don't seem to have done much to improve themselves. You'll be in a relegation battle but I'm not convinced there isn't three worse teams than you.

    Bruce is a weird manager to judge. It's very easy to say he's shit, but in the Championship he's gotten promoted four times, got close with Villa 2 seasons ago and given enough time I think he would of got Wednesday going as well and unlike Warnock who has a similar lower league record like that, Bruce has managed to keep clubs up in his past and get them to a cup final and Europe. The man is experienced and has his qualities. The problem is it's a clear backwards step from having Rafa, and you know what you're going to get with Bruce, even with a 3 year deal you can't say it's a long term project, you're just signing up for 3 years of just surviving because the funds aren't there to aim for anything higher. There's also the Ex-Sunderland issue there which some fans will never get over.

    Honestly mate, we're in for the sort of season Villa had when they went down. The squad has very little quality, and there's no goals in it whatsoever. Our strikers are Gayle, who isn't a premier league striker, and Muto, who played about three games last year. Almiron is good but can't score. And while we've been good defensively, I think a lot of that is because we had Rafa Benitez organising them. Rafa papered over a lot of cracks and the lack of investment and I don't trust Bruce, with a much weaker squad than last year, to produce similar results.

    The one report was saying he was the 11th choice and the other 10 weren't interested. And also that he will be the lowest paid manager in the Prem. That says something about Newcastle's intent.

    Re: Managerial Comings & Goings

    Appointing Bruce on a 3 year deal (I'll be amazed if he lasts that long) is almost as if they're already prepping for the championship. Newcastle won't attract top players this summer and the squad is already weaker than it was last season, where Rafa performed miracles with the rabble he had at his disposal.
    I'll honestly be flabbergasted if Newcastle don't get relegated this coming season.

    That presumes there is any intent so spend money. That doesn't appear to be the case and very likely why someone like Bruce was the only manager they could get. Ashley is an absolute albatross of an owner.

    Indeed. It's incredibly tells Ng that he was their 10th choice. I feel had for Bruce in some respects.
