“So Steve, how many pork pies did you have at half-time?”. “Well Mike, I did quite well, only had five”.

“18 months ago I look fresh-faced and ready for the challenge come back to North East and we have had the worst two winters in history. It has aged me enormously! 50… Jesus. Unbelievable.
“I’m going to lose some weight if I can, stay out of the pub! Its when I’m under pressure, when I open the fridge, beers, pork pies anything. I do like a pork pie with a can of beer. Pork sandwiches with a bit of mustard. Marvellous… With mustard, peas pudding and crackling and all that. Mmm.
“But I can’t have any mire pork pies – I’m sick of being called a fat bastard wherever I go. So that’s my New Year’s Resoluton not to be called Fat Head. I don’t go on the scales anymore – I am that frightened.” (Daily Mirror)
Kudos to the Black Cats manager for being so honest about his plight and one truly hopes he can lay off the bad stuff during the lean points in the season, although to be fair given that Sunderland are doing quite well shouldn’t that result in a far more healthy Steve Bruce? I.e. if he has no reason to be stressed therefore he wouldn’t need to seek solace in his fridge?
Anyway, opposition fans should take his words as a witty chance to mock the former centre back with the multiple broken noses. Why not arrive at games against Sunderland with pork pies and then offer them to him as he passes on his way to the dug out? The temptation will surely be too much? Which reminds me, I would love a pork pie right now, with some mustard. Can someone send me one in the post as I have too much of a hangover to get to the shops.
