Its the day after Brucemas Day, (Boxing Day?) and Steve Bruce is off to a winning start as we all expected, but lets remember all the stick Mr C took in November and December. The Octagon declaring a state of emergency and cancelling his booking before his fans forum. Rumours of him bowing to all three corners of Hillsborough after a Four Nil home defeat to Norwich and fans brawling with him outside the South Stand after the game.

 

This week saw the local press continue with the "Clubs up for Sale" narrative during Steve Bruce's unveiling, and I believe Mr C has had the last laugh, drawing the local press into this none story.

 

:Chansiri:

 

And as for Bruce's response "The Chairman told me there is no Budget". And the Stir and Grumble or Mumble can take that any which way they like!!

 

lol

I think you're giving DC far too much credit.

Mr C is a gambler, he got up quickly then had a huge loss, he looked like he was going to call it quits but now he is trying to recover the lost ground. That is unwise normally but he's changed tack, got a new system and believes in it. If this doesn't work then he may go. 

 

Far play to him for having another crack I say and I'm pleased he appears to be listening to people more now.

We are 16th in the second division and facing a potential transfer embargo due to wasting millions.

Think it's contributed to us having 18 poo months. Not really surprising people are pee'd off is it.

You are joking? This hasn't happened accidentally and must be a huge disappointment for the Stir

It certainly has 

 

ploughed millions and millions into our club and has got a few things wrong, but has been treated awfully by a large proportion of our fans 

 

think of the Dave Allen mould of owners and count your lucky stars 

Er I think ticket prices may have a say in all this

Yes the ticket pricing is the one area I’m disappointed he hasn’t budged on 

 

Apart from that I think he’s trying his hardest to make this club successful 

 

Without DC we wouldn’t have had the play offf final and those good times a couple years back 

 

Heck, without him we’d probably be in league one right now 

 

Some of you need think a little, and stop being so naive

Sarcasm in the right hands can either be corruscating or wickedly funny.

If I was DC I would wait 12 months and see where we are before thinking I had cracked it.

Not really a last laugh, just a reality check. At the time things were bad we've changed things becsuse we needed to and not things are looking slightly positive, if anything surely we had a part to play in influencing things change for the better.

No. I think he needs a guiding hand and as a well respected poster on here, I believe you would be a perfect choice.

 

Hopefully, Brucey boy can double up in that role as well.

If this latest gamble works then, yes, DC has the last laugh. I still suspect he is gambling with the club’s future on a vanity project. If it all goes wrong it’s not him who will feel it the most...
