  1. Genuinely don't believe he's the right guy. Think he'll comfortably get us to safety this season, but not be able to take us forward next. Can see him gone by end of next season or Xmas in the season after Whoever it is shall get my backing though
  2. Are you for real? Absolutely nothing to do with police cuts, they've been doing this long before the Tories came in to power!

    And how do you expect it to be better? Squad desperately needs investment, something a new owner won't even be able to do We can change manager (really think we should) but it's still a poor squad to work with With 2 weeks until January transfer window we at least had a chance of DC deciding to chuck money at it,now we have absolutely no chance. This is the squad for the season, and tbh, it will send us down

    Well, looks like a lot of you have got what you wanted.now up for sale with an owner who won't have the drive to help us this season, exactly what was needed when we are fighting for survival

    Agree with more recent posts. Don't understand how anyone could argue against him trying and want the best. It's absolutely in his interest to succeed. Gets a hell of a lot of stick, but keeps doing these forums which takes a lot of gonads to do so, especially when things are bad, despite a lot of posters not liking his answers Do feel he needs help, and must admit I'm worried on where we go from here. If financially we are stuck then it doesn't leave us much wriggle room. Surprised selling players wouldn't help FFP though?

    Unfortunately I do think it would be tough to get him, but I'd much rather us be forward thinking and at least give it a try, than go with the same old managers every club does Tbh, I don't think we even stand a chance of Bruce either. No way he'd come here with a depleted squad and no transfer kitty

    Yep, that is fine, so what about his record with the other 4 Championship teams? Or do they not matter?

    Bruce

    and anyway, people clamoring over Bruce's hugely successful record being the reason Bruce -> 6 Championship teams, promotions with 2 Jokanovic -> 2 Championship teams, promotions with 2 (3 seasons total) Why does that make Bruce better option? He's had far more seasons in the Championship with less success. Curious to know why people think he's the right option / better option over Jokanovic

    Bit like those fans who say it has to be an "English" manager, or Megson to instill some passion? Comparing Bruce to Pep though, jeez

    Bruce

    Yet from the 6 Championship teams he's managed, he's only been promoted with 2 of those, and both of those teams he also got relegated from the Premiership again. He's had 2 successful spells at the clubs he's been at (9 in total), Birmingham being the clear best. Of all the others, he's never made longer than 2 seasons, and in fact for 3 of those he lasted less than 1 season before resigning / jumping ship. Even in the season Hull beat us to promotion, they were a very boring team to watch. He's been sacked for wasting transfer budget, he's quit due to not having transfer budget, he'll be on a shed load of cash, so why on earth would he succeed here when we literally cannot spend a penny due to FFP? What are people's excuses for his record with Villa, with arguably the best squad in the division since relegation and an absolutely eye watering amount of money spent? Even we've outplayed them on several occasions despite being weak and injury hit all over the park Would I take Bruce over other options i.e. Megson, Evans - yes, but do I think he's the right man for the job - not at all

    I concur wholeheartedly seat buddy Jokanovic would be my first choice. Out of a job and plays excellent football. 2 Championship teams managed, 2 promotions achieved

    Bruce

    And look at how much money he's had at his disposal which he will not have here. How did he fair at Villa with a hugely talented squad? Previously linked jobs means nothing. Fox was linked to Man Utd so that obviously makes him good hey Totally the wrong direction to be going in. Past few jobs he's been lasting 1-2 seasons which tells its own story

    No thanks. Highly over rated
  15. I see the usual Fox bashing is here tonight. Today was one of his better games. Doesn't offer anything going forward because that isn't his game but defensively he was ok today, probably a 4/5. Joao no more than a 6 which probably the highest score with Hector for me Majority of the team were poor though. Pudil offered a much needed drive going forward
