Despite claims from TalkSport backing Newcastle to let Bruce manage his 1,000th game against Tottenham Hotspur, with the club being winless and sitting second-bottom of the league, if he was to be sacked, the manager […]Despite claims from TalkSport backing Newcastle to let Bruce manage his 1,000th game against Tottenham Hotspur, with the club being winless and sitting second-bottom of the league, if he was to be sacked, the manager would likely have little complaints, while he is set for an £8 million payout.

‘Is he the future in that fly- half shirt? He is going to have to go through some hurt and some lessons in his international career. We can’t just expect him to go out there, score a hat-trick and kick all the points. ‘Eddie needs to think, “Who’ s my fly- half for that World Cup?” It would be really bold to put Marcus in there. It would be a show of confidence and a show to everyone — the rugby world, us, whoever is watching, the team — of how they want to take this team forward.

'Thankfully I wasn't guilty and so he started going along the line of players, staring at each one, trying to find where the sound was coming from. Woe betide the person who owned it. Eventually, with his ears pricked, he arrived at Brucey's jacket, pushed his hand into it and pulled out the mobile phone.

Bruce played for United for nine years during his career as a tough centre-back, winning three Premier League titles and various other trophies under the stewardship of Ferguson.

The now 60-year-old then went onto a coaching career of his own, and is now in charge at Newcastle - although that could soon be coming to an end with the club having just been taken over by a mega-rich Saudi Arabian consortium.
