Hughton's record at this level is very good.

 

There are positives and doubts about him. Might be minimal change, similar record and pedigree. On the other hand do we really need another manager near the end of their career, possibly looking for one of their last pay days or someone possibly on the decline? 

 

That's why if and when Bruce goes, I'd consider going for younger managers in the EFL on the rise. Someone hungry and someone we can plan long term with.

 

 

As if hughtons looking for a lay pay day. He’s been managing for about 10 years if that. 

 

Even Bruce is still young really at 58.

I don't understand some people putting the onus on DC. There is a contract with a compensation clause. Everyone who needs to know know about it. This was in place when DC gave the go ahead for talks. So therefore a number was agreed upon. SB knows Ashley knew before meeting SB.

 

The onus is directly on Cashley. Come up with the money SB is yours. Don't we carry on as normal.

 

I'm sure SB is aware of this.

 

No compromise. Not 1p less.

 

this is the key - we are assuming there a figure in the contract, but all I've seen is what the current 1yr deal is worth.

 

If there is a figure, then Ashley needs to pay, and good on DC for holding out, but the stalemate will cause the club damage.

 

If there's no actual figure, it's simply a discussion over valuations and both sides are equally responsible for the outcome.

The issue and story here is the length of time in the job, the narrative of how DC stood by him when he wanted time out to deal with other issues and the timing so close to the season. 

 

Had he been here for 2 years and this has come up, it would have received a totally different reaction. 

But if he'd been here 2 years we'd have been challenging for the champions League innit

May as well say it,get it off my chest and take the flak. Steve Bruce is only ever interested in Steve Bruce,always has been and always will be. The jury was out for me when we appointment him because his track record of loyalty to clubs leaves a lot to be desired.I came round and bought in to what he was trying to achieve in turning us round after the Jos disaster. We are now in a difficult situation because of that loyalty issue.

If he goes he goes,if he stays he stays but at what cost to many fans trust in him.

Bruce comments today leave a bad taste for me 

“ I want to leave, I just need Wednesday to accept less compensation then I’m off”

 

Really hope DC digs in here.

As a Wednesday fan I I always think that you would do anything to have the top job of managing Wednesday. Saying that loyalty and morals are big for me, like if (when) we get to the champions league final i didn't get a ticket but walking to the game anyway, i see a fellow Wednesday fan has dropped his ticket. My first thought would be pick it up I'm going to the game but morals take over and I give him the ticket. I'm gutted that im not going but more than happy that I've done the right thing. Long way of saying Bruce should do the right thing and stay to finish what he's started here.

Just pay what’s due. If MA wants him that badly he will. However, I suspect he doesn’t given Bruce is about no5 choice

That. 

 

We are at a tipping point. DC has done well so far but his track record in football negotiating here isn’t the greatest.

Yep I was very surprised. Honestly didn’t think it was that long ago he finished playing.

It would seem so. He certainly doesn’t look 60

Where’s that come from because I listened to his interview after the match and that’s not what he said.
