BRUCE - The real reason he’s not starting til feb

Recommended Posts

So Bullen is in charge until then? 

 

What kind of shitfest are we in for if Bullen goes unbeaten in all that time?

Personally like to apologise to a few people on here,

This has been managed perfectly.
Part of that management will have involved the CEO... so yes... I was using blinkers and love of the club

to cast a critical eye and voice at the entire management team, when all I saw was us going to the dogs.

UP THE OWLS !!!!!

I think Agnew and Clemence are taking the reigns with Bullen staying as part the coaching team, hence Agnew doing the press conference yesterday.

Fair enough, you get 80-85 years on this planet if you’re lucky, there’s things more important than working, I’d do the same

 

Exactly, no one lays on their death bed wishing they’d spent more time at work.

 

Also, with a job like football management, he’ll be out of the door and either hated or forgotten about in 4 years time so even more so reason to prioritise family.

Still to be convinced that he's the right appointment but I find it perfectly acceptable that he has taken time off over the loss of his parents.

It's a more than acceptable reason - of course it is. And I've no problem with DC being accommodating to such a request, as it's the human and compassionate thing to do. In any case, I don't think it matters that much that he starts the job only in February.

 

It's a personal issue too, but I think it's better that the reason be outed. I think it would be awkward for Bruce to have to explicitly give this reason, so it being back-channelled like this is understandable, though not ideal either because it won't entirely quash rumours of it being something else.

If he is the right manager for us then it will be worth the 3 games or so

 

Precisely. I can't understand those of our fans who were insisting we couldn't wait for him and should move on and look elsewhere. It's not like there are many other candidates of his calibre at this level and I think we're fortunate to have secured his services. A wait of a few weeks is a small price to pay.

On Talksport yesterday they were saying it was because at the beginning of last year he had promised to take his dad to the cricket abroad somewhere. After his dad passed he said he was still going to go to honour his memory.

Whichever story is true I for one take my hat off to him, it shows he is a decent, honest human being. Qualities that I’m sure we all want from our manager.

Still to be convinced ? Well I’m not surprised considering he hasn’t started yet :duntmatter:

He's obviously a man of principles and family means alot. Think him and Mr C might well get on.  Bodes well for the future.

Can empathise with him. Losing both parents in a short space of time is very difficult.

 

Looking forward to his arrival on Feb 1

 

Good luck Steve
