    Well Luhukay has beaten his teams twice in the past, so that discounts him, according to some.

    Bruce averages 1.73 points per game in this division, compared to 1.58 for Carvalhal and 1.25 for Luhukay. 'Fulham guy' averages 1.74.

    Given our current predicament, I don't think we can afford to gamble. Bruce knows this league like the back of his hand and would represent as much of a safe pair of hands as it's possible to get in football management.

    If we tempt Bruce, I'd be encouraged that he's up for the challenge of wheeling, dealing and coaching his way to a competitive squad.

    I guess that rules out Klopp then, since Luhukay has beaten him twice.

    I wouldn't let one game influence your opinion of a two-decade management career. Bruce's time at Villa wasn't a roaring success, despite getting them to a playoff final, but he's an experienced manager who is surely far better equipped to deal with the demands of this division than almost any other realistic target we might be considering.

    If Bruce came I'd be delighted, if for no other reason than it would at least suggest that our club isn't such a basket case that no self-respecting manager with a track record in this division would touch us with a barge pole.

    Whoever our next manager is, they're crap and I want them sacked. History will at some point prove me right, and I'll return to this post to bask in my visionary status when the inevitable happens.

    Dear Mr chansiri

    I actually agree with some of what you say, and believe that Luhukay is trying to change the culture of our club and the profile of our playing squad for the better. It seemed to be working up to a point, but once things started to slide, he's been unable to prevent us spiralling down the table. I've defended him on here in the past, but the football his team is producing at the moment and the general malaise which seems to surround the players smacks of a manager who's badly lost his way. I don't expect miracles, but I would at least expect us to have an identifiable system and tactics, a good deal more team spirit, and at least some semblance of defensive organisation. It's frustrating, as we had all these things under Luhukay last season, and we were doing pretty well for a while at the start of this one, but whatever happened during that international break has left us looking a broken side. All I really want is to feel that we have a plan to get ourselves out of this slump, and I don't see that coming from Luhukay right now, I'm afraid.

    Yep. More then ever, we need a steady hand at the wheel. Someone who knows this league inside out, is able to wheel and deal and can get our disjointed squad performing to some kind of recognisable system. If Luhukay goes and we make the wrong appointment, there may be no way back

    If we get anything other than the usual plea for fans to stop posting nasty things online, interspersed with jokes about our squad being stronger than United's and calls for patience while he sorts things out, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

    I'm starting to think that we're not particularly good.
