Steve Bruce has insisted the criticism which came his way after Sunderland's disappointing start to the season was "water off a duck's back". Steve Bruce: "It's a bit easier. Hurt is the wrong word, I suppose. I get disappointed for the ones around me who care a little bit about me. "It hurts them more than it hurts me. I have been in it a long time. It becomes water off a duck's back. "I couldn't quite get to grips with the intensity of it so soon, but there you go. "Pressure? We are always under pressure. There are only so many Premier League managers and it was my turn. "There would probably be 19 others delighted it was my turn."
