Steve Bruce is the man believed to be top of Newcastle owner Mike Ashleys hit list to become the new manager on Tyneside.

He is expected to be unveiled as the new manager of Newcastle United before the end of the weekend and it is thought that
Bruce is keen to take the Newcastle job but they trying to come to an agreement with current club, Sheffield Wednesday, over a compensation package.

Bruce has his work cut out for him at Newcastle and he has to get the ground running straight away. Their huge fan base has to be won over rapidly especially with some threatening to boycott games next season (chronicle live).

Steve Bruce has been a manager for twenty years now and has been at 10 clubs. He will have to draw upon all his managerial experience to make a success of the Newcastle job.

If he can man manage the team he will have and possibly bring in some quality, cheap additions than perhaps the club can maintain their Premier League status.
