If its not Steve Bruce

Recommended Posts

A number of sources seem to suggest the job is Steve Bruce's so takes away the debate of who we want as Manager. 

 

Regardless of this if the Bruce appointment falls down who do you want in. 

 

For me it is Ian Holloway.  Available and probably at the right price.  He cam work with a lower budget and has had relative success at this level.  Think he did better at QPR than people give him credit for. 

 

Would give us a personality boost and similar to the Sturrock effect that we had.

So we don't need to debate who we want as our new manager, but regardless of that let's debate who we want as our new manager?

 

:duntmatter:

 

Zidane.

I’d try short term experience and maybe have a look in the summer where there will be more available and a younger manager like Nathan Jones could have a better stab at it.

 

But it’s Bruce and he’s the best we could realistically hope for

It is Bruce. However, I completely agree. Holloway is a good fit for this club. I wanted him when Jones left but he fell out with Mandaric previously and Gray did an excellent job as caretaker.

Personally I hope it’s not Bruce 

Good CV in our league but just have a horrible feeling about his appointment for us. 

He’s never really done a “great” job in my opinion, usually just par for the course.

 

Reading what the fans of his previous clubs say doesn’t fill me with confidence either

I liked the guy. Boring football but if that's what it takes to keep us up, as we can't afford the luxury of entertainment now, then bring him in till the end off the season again. That's if Bullen turn out to be our only other option. Poor guys up in Gretna now.

DC mentioned jokanovic the other day saying he wouldn’t come because he’s a perm manager now, I’m hoping he’s lied again

Why do we always have to look to the past when discussing appointing new managers, these people are mostly in the past for a reason, we need to look forwards, people like Stuart as such Gray and Garyosaurus Megson aint the answer either..

 

but then again nors some unemployed Dutchman or the likes..

To be honest I'd prefer him over Bruce he's a big exuberant and infectiously energetic character who'd definitely lift the mood and atmosphere around the training ground and pitch . He'd definitely be easier to identify with than Steve "very bland" Bruce, I find him very dull.

If it's not Bruce, then Jokanovic would be my second choice. Another manager who knows the league with 2 promotions.

 

The Mirror reporting that he wants a quick return to management...
