Who do you imagine targeted the Portuguese who joined under CC? Who do you think identified Joey as JLs only signing?

He Who Must Not Be Named

I think people forget something when talking about Carlos and transfer business.

 

He was never interested in strengthening his first eleven after that first season.

 

He was only ever interested in signing backups and that was why we ended up with the players we did and why once the injuries started we were done for.

Reach and Fletcher were only signings to get in first eleven, and even then Reach had to play anywhere to get a game .

Who in the name of f.ook are the 7 centre forwards?

Is he counting me?

Six centre forwards in Rhodes Joao Winnall Hooper Nuhiu Fletcher (one out on loan)

Two further strikers Matias and Forestieri

So to be correct eight strikers in total fighting for one or  two places.

 

I can see the point he is making.

Don't think we will ever truly find out who had final say in the Rhodes transfer.

 

Didn't think for one moment Bruce would have come in if he didn't get final say on all football decisions.

No way do i see Bruce working with Paxo and his cronies at Doyen. 

He is still on the scene currently.  I hoped we'd seen the last of him after SB's appointment but he has still been in the directors box for the matches Agnew has been in charge for.  Will be interesting to see whether he is still there now that SB is fully in charge

Well, Fletcher, Nuhui, Hooper, Rhodes, Joao and Winnall are probably inarguable, Matias and Forestieri somewhat debatable

That flippingAsteener's on £40K a week. Stealing a living. Should send him out on loan to Bladesmad.

Another statement I absolutely love. I really don’t see Bruce being a yes man and having a chairman interfere. Personally when everyone is fit we seem to have quantity over quality upfront. With Bruce saying we have to many strikers I’m surprised no one left yesterday.

Pretty sure that both Carlos and Jos insisted this was the case for them too

Difference is that Bruce will walk and say fk it then if that's how you want to run it

 

Not sit there and wait for a pay off like a leech 

 

I'm well delighted Steve Bruce is here.not expecting miracles this season as he's got a lot of crap to get rid in the summer

The problem was he spent the best part of 20 million on the likes of Rhodes, Reach, Abdi and Jones and not one of them started the home leg of the play off semi final.

Or after the Shambles at Wembley the season before?

 

Just watch the second leg of the Brighton playoff game again, we were very lucky to get to Wembley in the first place. That Brighton game was very reminiscent of Jos's 7-3 defensive formations. 

 

With Bruce I can't see him setting us out to nullify the opposition against anyone in the Championship. Carlos and Jos both liked to make football difficult.
