It's Tuesday afternoon, two days after being beaten and somewhat humiliated by Spurs live on Sky Sports with a very comfortable 3-2 win over Steve Bruce's boys and Bruce with his players are no where to be seen.
They haven't refused access for reporters and fans to enter the training ground or anything, no, no...the team aren't there. They're not training today. They are on a second back to back day off after a match. It beggars belief.
I can not believe what I am seeing here. Just think about it, you've not won a game all season. Your team are unfit. Your team are unorganised. And you spend not one but TWO days sitting on your arse watching Homes under the Hammer? I'm fuming.
The players have been given another day off, so no training again today #NUFC— NUFC360 (@NUFC360) October 19, 2021
The reason this is so enraging is this isn't a one off. Steve Bruce's team have more days off than the Queen. This was a factor when Ashley was here and it has continued into this new regime.
Where is the blokes pride of work? Where is his logic here? The man is an absolute fraud. A lazy one. You would think he would be putting in the extra hours to impress HIS new employers to give him a good crack at this job wouldn't you? Isn't that what he wants?
If this is his best effort in a) impressing his new employers he is the man for the job and b) turning around the team's fortunes than the man isn't fit for purpose. But tbh, we already know that. We already know he should be nowhere near the job...and in his own way he is obliging! Where are you??
To be even more cynical is to suggest he is purposely acting this way, by that I mean downing tools, as he wants to be sacked. He is practically begging for it. Openly goading the owners to push the button and give him is £8m pay off. This is the level of the man.

😡😡😡 what the fuck? 7 days off in 11 days! @NUFC
As professional as a teenager forced to do community service. Bunking off whenever he can. Doing the bare minimum. Yet crying like a little bitch whenever he gets the opportunity. The man is clown. 1000 game fraud.
How he is still in the job I have no idea. I don't know what the new owners are waiting for. The rumour is Staveley and Reuben wanted to sack him last week before the Spurs game but didn't recieve the ok from majority owner PIF.
Well, Yasir Al-Rumayyan, our new chairman, was here on Sunday. Literally in the room so why was the decision not given the ok on Sunday night? The whole stadium was calling for "Bruce Out!" so why is he still here 48 hours later? I'm baffled.

Sack him. Pay him off and let Graeme Jones take the team for this weekend. He will work the players all week long and give him the best chance of a result as we desperately need it.
Bruce is dead man walking and he knows it. Having two days off training directly after a match that you lost is a total piss take when you haven't won a match all season. He wants to be sacked? Do it. Get rid. He is lingering around like a really bad smell.
Honestly, I am fuming. The team continues to suffer with a lack of fitness (they are knackered in EVERY match) and plan to actually win a game. All because this waste of space is too lazy and selfish to do his job. Get out.
