As a player Bruce started as a midfielder but translated into a powerful and dependable centre-back who many described as the best player of the 80s and 90s never to appear for England. He was eligible to play for the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland but was unable to play for them as he had played in a professional England under-21 game. He has been occasionally mocked for a extremely superficial resemblance to character actor Bernard Cribbins.

Playing career

Bruce began his footballing career with Gillingham in Kent upon leaving school in the summer of 1977. It is sometimes stated that he was only given a trial at the club after turning up uninvited to keep his friend Peter Beardsley company during the latter's ultimately unsuccessful trial, but it is unclear if this is true. In 1978 he made his debut and was a first-team regular for six years. For the team based in Dorset, see Gillingham Town F.C.

Peter Andrew Beardsley MBE (born January 18, 1961, Newcastle-upon-Tyne) is a renowned English former footballer of the 1980s and 1990s, who once set a record transfer fee in the game and represented his country 59 times, on one occasion as captain. ...


Bruce was transferred to Norwich City in 1984. He suffered the misfortune of scoring an own goal on his debut, but soon settled in to become a rock in the Canaries' defence. In 1985 Norwich were relegated from the top flight just weeks after a win over Sunderland in the League Cup final. Bruce was voted Norwich City player of the year at the end of his first season with the club. Norwich won promotion at the first time of asking but Bruce was transferred to Manchester United for £825,000 in December 1987, just before his 27th birthday.

Steve Bruce made his Manchester United debut in a game against Portsmouth on 19 December 1987 and went on to score 51 goals in 414 appearances for the club in eight and a half years, including a memorable double against Sheffield Wednesday in 1993 which has prompted the term "BRUUUUCE!!!", as commentated by Barry Davies, [1] to become an internationally used catchphrase for when something goes in one's favour[citation needed]. He amazingly finished the 1990/91 campaign as United's joint top goalscorer with 19 goals, helped by accuracy from the penalty spot. Bruce helped United win three Premiership titles (1993, 1994 and 1996), two FA Cups (1990 and 1994), one League Cup and one Cup Winners' Cup (1991). He took over from Bryan Robson as club captain in 1991 and got the position full time when Robson left three years later. As captain he helped United to the league title in 1993 - scoring two late goals against Sheffield Wednesday at Old Trafford - and again in 1994, forming a formidable partnership with Gary Pallister at the heart of a defence that lost only four league matches all season. That same year he led United to FA Cup glory against Chelsea and to the League Cup final against Aston Villa. The following season he was once again ever present at the heart of the United back line, but was unable to add any medals to his collection as United were pipped to the Premiership title by Blackburn Rovers and defeated in the FA Cup final by Everton. The following season, which was to be his last at Old Trafford, more than compensated for a barren previous campaign. Bruce once again was a lynchpin at the heart of a United defence that managed to overcome a 12 point deficit to Newcastle United at Christmas to lift the Premiership trophy on the last day of the season. However, a week later Bruce was left out of United's squad for the 1996 FA Cup final against Liverpool. Despite the fact that Bruce was club captain, he insisted that match winner Éric Cantona lift the trophy at Wembley in an almost unprecedented show of professionalism. Within two weeks, however, he had joined Birmingham City on a free transfer.

In two seasons at Birmingham, Bruce was a regular first team player and continued to perform at a high level but was unable to get them promoted to the Premiership.


Managerial career

At the end of the 1997-98 season Bruce became player-manager of Sheffield United, bringing in John Deehan as his assistant. The Blades could not manage anything more than a mid table finish in 1998-99. The 38-year-old Bruce played his last competitive game at the end of the 1998-99 season, bringing down the curtain on an illustrious playing career stretching back more than 20 years. Feeling let down by the board, Bruce resigned. // Premier League Arsenal overhauled Manchester Uniteds lead during the final weeks of the season to win the Premiership title. ... Sheffield United Football Club are a professional English football club based in the City of Sheffield, South Yorkshire. ... John Deehan (born 1957), is a former football (soccer) player who in recent years has had several spells in coaching and management. ...


Bruce was then appointed Huddersfield Town manager and in his first season they narrowly missed out on the Division One playoffs. The Terriers finished in eighth place, with only a dismal end to the season costing them a place in the play-offs - they won only two of their final seven games to miss out by two points. That was just a hint of what was to come for Huddersfield as they started the 2000/01 season in disastrous form, winning only one of their first 13 League and Cup games. Huddersfield Town Football Club is an English football club based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, who are currently playing in Coca-Cola League One. ...

In March he was appointed Wigan Athletic manager. They reached the Division Two playoffs but lost in the semi-finals. Wigan Athletic Football Club are a professional football team based in Wigan, Greater Manchester, England. ...


After just seven weeks with Wigan, Bruce was appointed manager of Crystal Palace and finally appeared to be on the road to success in management when a strong start to the 2001-02 season saw most people tip Palace for promotion to the Premiership. Crystal Palace Football Club is a professional football team based in Croydon in Surrey and playing in the Coca-Cola Football League Championship, the second level of English football. ...


After just four months at Palace, Bruce returned to Birmingham City as manager. This prompted animosity toward Bruce from the Crystal Palace fans and also the Chairman, Simon Jordan. On his arrival, Birmingham were mid table in Division One and the realistic target for the 2001-02 season was to consolidate rather than push for promotion. But he guided them into the playoffs and they beat Norwich City on penalties in the final to end a 16-year absence from the top division. Simon Jordan (born 24 September 1967, in Croydon, London) is chairman, owner and fan of Crystal Palace Football Club, a football club who are, as of the 2006-2007 season, in the Championship, the second level of English football. ...

The 2002-2003 season was the 123rd season of competitive football (soccer) in England, from August 2002 to July 2003: // England national team Key: ECQ = 2004 European Championship qualifiers, F = Friendly; scores are written England first European club competitions UEFA Champions League Manchester United - Quarter finals Arsenal - Second group phase... The 2004-2005 season was the 125th season of competitive football in England. ...


In August 2004 Bruce was linked with the manager's job at Newcastle but he turned it down and chose to stay at Birmingham for at least another three seasons. Following the sacking of Graeme Souness as Newcastle manager on 2 February 2006, Bruce was again being mentioned as a possibility for the job, most likely due to his childhood roots in Northumberland and affinity for the club as a youth: Newcastle United Football Club are an English professional football team based in Newcastle upon Tyne. ... Graeme James Souness (born Edinburgh, Scotland, 6 May 1953) was the captain of the all-conquering Liverpool F.C. football team of the early 1980s who later returned to the club as manager. ... Northumberland is a county in northern England. ...


"I have always been a Newcastle lad and when I was a kid, I crawled under the turnstiles to get in to try and save a bob or whatever it was," Bruce told Sky Sports News on 3 February 2006. "They were my team, I went to support them as a boy and being a Geordie it's in-bred in you, you follow the club still the same today." This article is about a city in the United Kingdom. ... Look up Geordie in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


However, he then said "At the moment, I am just concentrating on Birmingham as I have got a big job here, with the huge task of keeping us in the Premier League and that is all I am focusing on at the moment."


By this point of the season, the team were in some trouble in the league, and on 21 March 2006, Birmingham City were beaten 7-0 at home by Liverpool in the FA Cup Quarter Finals[2]. Despite mass calls for his resignation by supporters and fans of the club, Bruce insisted that he would fight on as manager [3].

Following a 3-0 defeat at former club Manchester United, Bruce's side managed a highly creditable 0-0 draw with Chelsea, followed by a 1-0 home win against Bolton Wanderers, which lifted Birmingham out of the relegation zone. However, it was not to last, and the team was relegated before the final day of the season. Manchester Uniteds emblem Manchester United F.C. (often abbreviated to Man United or just Man U, pronounced man-yoo) is an English football club based at Old Trafford in Greater Manchester. ...


On 4 January 2007, Bruce was named as the Championship Manager of the Month for December.


Current Season 2006/2007

Birmingham made a slow start to the 2006/07 season in the Football League Championship and after a 1-0 home defeat to Norwich City fans began calling for Bruce's head.

The pressure eased somewhat when in Bruce's seeming 'decider game' the Blues recorded a 1-0 victory thanks to a goal from Stephen Clemence. Surprisingly the travelling army of Birmingham supporters at the end of the match chanted Bruce's name, to which the Birmingham manager responded by giving a grin. Stephen Clemence (born March 31, 1978 in Liverpool, England), the son of Ray Clemence, onetime Tottenham Hotspur and England goalkeeper, is an English football player and midfielder for Birmingham City F.C.. The first team he played for was Tottenham Hotspur, for whom he made his debut against Manchester United...
