Steve Bruce Tells Sunderland Fans That Football Is Even Bigger Than Newcastle

by | 17th, October 2011

SUNDERLAND are floundering in the Premier League. A spirited performance against Arsenal resulted in no points.¬†Sunderland’s misery is compounded by Newcastle United’s promising start to the season. What effect is this having on the team’s boss Steve Bruce?

“As long as I am the Sunderland manager, the one thing I want to do is finish above them [Newcastle], and I am sure Alan Pardew is the same” – August 2011

“Is it just to be judged on finishing above Newcastle? Well, I’m sorry. There’s a bigger picture than that. Unfortunately – if we keep thinking that way, then whoever is manager here – or at Newcastle – they will find the same difficulties” – October 2011

Such are the facts.
