Hugely experienced at this level, knows the Championship inside out, good track record. I think we're lucky to have him (although I bet some of us will complain that he's not good enough........)

 

A few weeks ago I really thought he was more likely to hold out for a better offer. I wonder how Chansiri persuaded him to come to S6? Apart from the rumoured salary......

Wow he's managed less games in the Championship than I realised, incredible record that, 230 games is 5 full seasons and 4 of those were promotions!

On paper its as good an appointment that we could wish for.

 

If Chansiri hands over complete control of football operations to Bruce, then there's no reason why we can't be his 5th promotion.

I had a sneak peak at the newly refurbished Manager's quarters in Hillsborough after the forum

Actually, I forgot to include the 41 games he managed in the 'First Division' before it was rebranded. 

 

It tips his win ratio up to 51%, then.

 

:duntmatter:

 

For the majority of his career, he's been a Premier League manager.

Basically Steve Bruce's teams have finished above Wednesday for a very long time since early 2000. Either he is coming down to our level or we are going up to his.

Quite funny. Have a read if you’re on a train or the toilet. Or the toilet on the train.

 

Dont bother if you’re revising or operating heavy machinery or doing something else important.

Come on anyone taking the villa job was set up to fail to begin with in the championship, especially a only brim manager now managing a local rival , He probably wants to wash the stain of villa off his hands

  • Oh, and in 14 games against his sides, Wednesday have lost 9 and won 3 - so it also means we'll no longer be losing to his teams on a regular basis

It all adds up to a great appointment.

 

We couldnt have found anyone with a better CV at this level.

True.

 

I'm actually amazed that this has happened after Chansiri chose Carvalhal and Luhukay for his previous appointments.

100%. Villa are a basket case at the moment, they'll end up like us 20 years outside the top division. 

 

Said that minute they came down and not seen anything to change my mind since.

"I would love a crack maybe one day at managing a big club, to try and win trophies," he said recently, speaking with an almost embarrassed smile. "But at the moment? I'm quite happy to plod along."

 

Welcome to Hillsborough Steve.
