'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Steve 'Wor Club' Bruce - Manc, Mag or Mackem?

Set to take the mackem job in the immediate future, what would you define Steve Bruce as? Is he a Mag, Manc or Mackem? Regularly caught in interviews referring to 'Wor Club', it seems Bruce is going to defile his black and white roots in the most heinous way. A reminder of previous Bruce quotage:

November 2008 -

'The only genuine opportunity I had was when Sir Bobby left. But I'd just signed a new deal at Birmingham and I'd just signed five or six players that summer. I felt, out of loyalty to Birmingham at the time, that I couldn't go. It was a huge decision. When I turned it down my son rang me and said 'What are you doing? Dad, you daft prick.' (Ed: Never a truer word spoken...)

It was the biggest decision in football terms that I have ever had to make but because of my history - I'd been accused of jumping ship before - and because things were going well at Birmingham, I felt I couldn't leave.

Have I ever regretted it? Yes, of course. It's long gone so I can talk about it now. Newcastle were the team I supported as a boy. If you are born there, then you are associated with that club. Could I still manage them one day? I don't know. Maybe one day. You never know. Football sends you down many paths, so you never know.'

I think this one just about knocks any chance of managing 'Wor Club' on the heed pal.

Total pancake faced tool. I guess Dave Whelan's comments about him going to a big four club were a little overstated.
