Steve the Bruce.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Steve the Bruce you broke our hearts
And you a native of these parts
We were out classed, out gunned, out fought
We left St James’s quite distraught.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Steve you had delusions above your station
In front of an armchair watching nation
Cut geordie pride right to the bone
This son of Tyneside one of our own.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Another chance of silverware alas now gone
Season’s dreams shattered One by One
But I for One offer no excuse
Well done the blues……And Steve the Bruce.


I was there and may I add stayed until the final whistle to witness our heaviest FA cup home defeat for 93 years.
