Steve Bruce Quotes

You guys in the media use this word 'pressure'. You lose two games and you are under pressure. It's absolute nonsense. Laughable. But that's the territory we're in.


I was thinking: 'Do I want to be sitting beside Alan Green?'. The Hull job had been offered to me and while watching Chelsea against Bayern Munich I was thinking: 'I'm going to give it a crack.' I'd rather be managing than commentating.


I do not want to give Robbie Savage any more publicity. I am fed up to the back teeth with him.
