Speculation regarding Steve Bruce and the fact that Newcastle United are on the prowl for the Wednesday manager has been rife for a few days now, with Bruce actively seeking permission from the Owls board to speak to the North East club.
With all this media attention and speculation regarding Bruce’s future, the Sheffield Wednesday fans can be forgiven for being a little fed up with things at the moment, with their pre-season preparations seemingly in tatters following the news.
So with a pre-season friendly scheduled for this afternoon against Lincoln City at Sincil Bank, it was the perfect opportunity for the South Yorkshire clubs fans to air their opinion on the matter.
However, it appears that one fan has gone a little over the line in his protests towards the 58-year-old, with The Daily Mirror reporting that had fan had been led away by Police following a fiery outburst towards Bruce regarding his links with the Newcastle United post.
It is believed that certain aspects of the package offered to Bruce by The Magpies are causing a delay in proceedings, meaning Bruce would have to take charge of the game in Lincoln, which game the supporter the opportunity for his attack.
Obviously losing your manager at this stage during pre-season is not ideal at all, so you can understand the frustrations of the Owls faithful, but there is a line that should never be crossed.
It is reported that most Sheffield Wednesday fans were warm towards the former Sunderland manager though, singing the team off at half time to a chorus of “Stevie Bruce’s barmy army”, so not all Wednesday fans are as bitter as the person in question.
