Birmingham vs Newcastle
Future Newcastle manager?

Birmingham will be a tough game. They've had a very good season so far and although they suffered a bit of blip lately, but they will be looking to get back on to winning tracks. The most interesting things will be comparing the position of bobby Robson and Steve Bruce. Both are Geordies, both are well though within the game but at different ends of their managerial careers. Recently Steve Bruce has been complementary about Bobby Robson and Newcastle and it would not surprise me one bit if at some stage in the not too distant future he succeeds Bobby Robson in the Newcastle united hot seat. He has done well in his early management career and although much of the success was in the lower division now he has established Birmingham as a strong premiership side. He could be just the type of man for the Newcastle job, and he'd also fit in to Freddy Shepherd's desire for a Geordie management team.
