I wonder if he'd have started earlier if we'd have lost the last 4 games...Bullen has done superbly in steadying the ship. Made Bruce's job a damn sight easier.

 

Good news all round. Looking forward to this transfer window, should be interesting. Never boring being an Owl, eh??!

Bullen staying on as coach. 

 

If Bruce continues his previous win ration of about 45% then we could be on the fringes of the playoffs on 72 points

A bit of a Brucie bonus on that and we could make it. 

40 points from 20 games isnt out of the question given our recent 4 games.

Sheffield Wednesday are delighted to confirm the appointment of Steve Bruce as our new manager.

 

Bruce will begin his post on 1 February 2019, before which long-time coaching associates Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence will take charge of the team.

 

Agnew will take a caretaker manager role alongside Clemence, while Lee Bullen remains as part of the senior coaching set-up.

 

Bruce brings a first class CV to Hillsborough, with an outstanding success rate of Championship promotions – four to date.

 

The former Manchester United defender, who enjoyed a glittering career as a player, has twice steered both Hull City (2013 & 2016) and Birmingham City (2002 & 2008) to the top flight.

 

Bruce also guided Aston Villa to the Championship play-off final in 2018.

The Northumberland product also came close to being appointed England national team manager when he was interviewed for the position prior to the appointment of Sam Allardyce in 2016.

 

He now joins the Owls and the vastly experienced boss will strengthen the coaching team at Hillsborough with the additions of trusted cohorts Agnew and Clemence.

 

Following a stint as Middlesbrough caretaker manager Agnew took up the post of assistant to Bruce at Hull before re-joining Boro as Aitor Karanka’s number two.

 

After his second spell as caretaker at the Riverside, Agnew was appointed first team coach with Bruce at Villa.

 

Likewise, Bruce has a strong working relationship with Clemence, whom he recruited at St Andrew’s as a player.

 

Clemence has previously worked with Bruce in a coaching capacity at Sunderland, Hull and Villa.

 

Bruce will be officially unveiled as Wednesday manager at a Hillsborough press conference in due course.
