The reported claimed via his personal Twitter account on Thursday that discussions between managing director and Sheffield Wednesday boss Bruce “went well”.

OPINION

It seems that those talks with Charnley went very well because the Magpies appear to be close to hiring Bruce. Although the 58-year-old has done well at Hillsborough since he was hired by the Owls in the winter, he’s not someone who fans should be getting excited about. Bruce has a history of dull football, managing relegation-fodder teams and suffering relegation from the . Mike Ashley has already seen Newcastle relegated twice under his watch and a third drop to the Championship is certainly on the cards now that is about to be replaced by Bruce. Ashley just seems to be having a laugh now. He could have appointed worse managers than Bruce but why not go big and bring in a young, exciting manager who can have some new ideas and attract some high-quality players. would have been a more exciting appointment or ex-Feyenoord manager , who is out of a job at the moment.
