Bruce motivation and commitment

Recommended Posts

I agree with OP.

When he was at Hull he didn't seem bothered towards the end.   I don't think he got on with the owner Allam, but I couldn't help noticing he didn't celebrate much after they beat us at Wembley.

His future had a question mark over it all that season.

And he didn't achieve much at Villa, considering the parachute payments and quality squad they had.

 

Hope I'm wrong but I think he's lost his motivation.

I'd still prefer the brothers from Lincoln City, especially if our funds are tied.

The Cowley brothers would be my long term choice.

He is on a family vacation after losing both his parents this year. I don't see it as a lack of commitment or motivation - I'm sure he could live very comfortably without taking on a new job, and the pressures and stresses that come with it.

 

Many people have a break before starting a new job. I did it with my current one. And besides, as far as I know, we aren't paying him anything at the moment, so if it is all about cash, he's not making anything off of us while he's on holiday

 

I know it a sensitive subject and you do make excellent points but "Vacation"?  Really?

I bet you believed Bill Shankly when he said football was more important than life or death too

 

Football is a game, losing both parents in quick succession is an absolute tragedy, one can only imagine the effect it has had on Bruce himself but what about his kids and grandkids ?

I don’t blame Bruce putting his family before football at this time 

 

He doesn’t need to put football before family. Just take an hour out to agree the terms which agents and the club will have  done all the work on. 

Whilst tragic,his parents died 10 and 7 months ago respectively.

Does this really mean he can’t spend a couple of hours on the phone finalising the deal if he really is enthusiastic about the job.  He can start at a date and time to suit himself.

I feel it is  more likely his agents are still turning the screw harder to get every last penny from the deal and have told him to sit tight and let the media/social media pressure on the club increase.

Get real people , he is a hard arsed football pro who knows how to demand a wedge and has agents who use all leverage possible to get the extra 20%.

Please quit with the bleeding heart stuff.

What, you think it's got this far down the line without him making contact with anyone? 

 

Behave.

How do you know this hasn't already happened.

Oh, that makes it ok does it? Ever lost a parent or someone you care about? And how dare you decide how Steve Bruce should feel about his family. You’re a disgrace.

We had that earlier when the poster said Bruce is making no compromises to be our manager.

The circumstances under which he was working at Hull were illustrated by a large chunk of their support boycotting our game with them at Wembley.

So how do you know it has not been sorted out already and he may have been in contact whilst on holiday. Why are posters trying to create an issue when there isn't one. It is as if some just post crap one negatives so that in 2 years they can say, look at me I was right etc etc.

 

Quite like the idea of a new manager been rested and got his head in order before joining us.

 

Maybe we can wait until he has started before having ago at him?

Think that was more to do with their owners, got them to the PL and didn't kick on with all the required funds.

You would have assumed so. Maybe the Star could send Doom to Barbados to get the scoop.

Think Doom will keep a low profile with us turning a corner, wins and a new manager. Nothing negative to report must be gutted. Meanwhile back at the galpharm not going so well...Lol
