So whats the deal with this?

 

  • Needs more time with his family?
  • Terms of Villa pay off means he can't manage another team until after January?

 

Overall I think its a good appointment but if we're treating it like he's doing us a favour and bending to his every whim isn't this a bit concerning.

Well all our manages have to be subject to their own conspiracy theory so this delayed start date should be enough to get the chins wagging.

If he's the right choice to take us forward and ultimately to promotion, a four week wait should be well worth it

 

I've no doubt he'll be working away in the background

So you don't think its in any way a bit weird/of concern/worth a mention/something to be discussed?

Not ideal to be honest

 

But he is the right manager for us in our situation so worth the wait

Could well be a clause in his pay off that he can't take over another Championship club until the close of the January transfer  window

Think second point is most likely.

I am encouraged we are going out of our way to get somebody with a track record rather than some geezer who nobody has ever heard off. 

Interesting but have noticed a drop off in posts from some on here who appear to have Agents interest at heart. This appointment may not suit them.

I'm sure I heard last week that he was due to have surgery on a long standing injury when he came back from holiday.

 

Though it has been Christmas boozy time and I may have dreamt it.

It's certainly a topic. 

All we can do is speculate.

Best we can hope for is reasoned and considerate speculation. 

We won't get that. 

Be prepared for 'funny' theories and 'negative ' theories with the odd brave poster trying to talk sense. 

So as CAS would say ' Good luck in all your endeavors '. :biggrin:

Not concerned. Bruce is a very straight and hardworking guy. There will be a valid reason.

Bullen, Agnew, Bruce. It's a cunning plan to get the new manager bounce in points three times in quick succession and move us up the league.

This makes a bit more sense, my first impression was that Bruce was a bit half hearted about taking over.

Still sticking our necks out a bit waiting another month for him but probably the right choice as last few results have steadied the ship and very likely to finish mid table anyway.

He's got to work his way through his Terry's All Gold, Lindt chocolate Santas and Turkey and stuffing sandwiches.
