Met him a few times great club man and he does a great job when he steps in keeping things together but let's move on and appoint a manager as soon as possible best thing for all parties

You need guys like Bullen. 

 

Really is the backbone of the club. 

 

 

 

True. You just have to have one of those sergeant major types who you can trust when things go wrong. Doesn't make a great big noise out of himself, just gets things back in shape. I'm sure he's a good mentor to our younger players as well.

I am sure he has ambitions like we all do, but perhaps he just enjoys the world as it is right now. 

 

Within the football world, get the day to day vibe of the dressing room but no real pressure on you if it goes wrong.

This would work for me. 

Then, as we PTL, the entire stadium could bop all the way to the Prem ..... cue Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs ...

”Matty told Hatty/ bout a thing she saw/ had two big horns/ and a woolly jaw

WOOLY BULLYYYYY!”

 

we might manage a fortnight before Derby nick it

He's outlasted a a few managers now, maybe its a case of being the power behind the throne.

Honesty mate have you forgot the last performances when he was manager especially the drubbing, Bullen would be the cheap no ambition option, similar to Shreeves and Yorath.

I thought we won 3 games ont bounce in between Jos and Agnew coming in? 

 

Drubbing was time before. 

 

Over 2 years ago where Bullen now has vastly more experience. Think about 2 years in the context of your career, you learn a lot, maybe...

I would say more the consistency behind the throne 

 

I don't know perhaps as you grow older you accept where you are and happy with it - that the top job comes with potential rewards but a huge risk. But enough about myself lol

It would be a mistake given Bullen the job in my opinion. His best role is on the coaching team and to be the friendly face linking manager to fans. If he became manager I doubt he would be so open and happy with fans on Twitter. 

When we lost 3-0 at hull he openly said they didn’t know what they were doing so it would be worrying if he was given the job full time.

Love the bloke 

 

But it would be an absolute disaster if given the job 

 

Leave him be, hes great at what hes doing behind the scenes

People saying give him the job would be the same people turning on him and wanting him out if we go on a bad run. I really don’t want that to happen and result in him leaving the club all together. Keep him on the coaching staff but please DC don’t give him the managers job.

Honestly wouldn't mind him getting the job because he is Sheffield wednesday through and through 

Only negged it mate for one simple reason. I'm of the total opposite view. I'd hate it, & I mean hate it if it went t1ts up at some point. Our fans, like many others I suppose can get quite rotten when the going gets really tough and goodwill only lasts so long. Bully is a fantastic bloke, done everything for this club & I think it would kill him to hear fans booing etc. The good times can get easily lost & we focus on the negative. He's a top class fella both on & off the field.

Please DC keep Bully close, but not that close.

We're definitely lucky to have him, safe pair of hands for the time being until a new manager comes in.

 

 

 

Loyalty is a rare thing in football.  Bullen has it running through his veins .

Genuinely speaking how does someone become a proper manager? 

Hughton spent years as an assistant/coach, Eddie Howe was given the opportunity as was Sean Dyche having spent 5 years as a coach at Watford before a year as manager. I'm not saying Bullen deserves the job (he did ok when he took over from Jos mind) but how do you become a manager without someone taking a punt on you? It's essentially how the game works. 

 

It would be an interesting appointment and a man who understands how as a fanbase we work. My only reservation is that if he takes the job and performs poorly then theres really no going back to 'Coach Bullen' and he's a huge part of the off the field stability we have remaining.

 

 

Please don’t take this as a dig at bullen because it isn’t, someone earlier in the thread mentioned it always turns to talk about him and if he can become manager and that’s correct.

however I would have bullen in and around the club for as long as he is able, because he is loyal, he bleeds blue and white and is a model professional. 

That said for three years nobody even knew his job role, was he a defensive coach? What was the specifics?  I honestly think he was purely on the staff roll because he was the blue and white we needed. 

 

As for comments how do people become proper managers, well unless your lucky enough to fall into it straight from ending your playing career then most coaches have plans to advance through the system, picking up coaching badges and also mostly having mentors to guide them.

this appointment if ever made would be one born out of circumstance and the fact he is loyal. There would be zero foundation to give this on skill set. 

 

As as I said the man needs to be kept in and around the squad, he’s a blue and white warrior. But take the emotion out of the situation and it’s a huge no no

some of the performances under Bullen where very poor, Burton and Hull for example. When things are going well I think Bullen would be great but when they aren’t going good I think he would struggle for ideas. He himself said against Hull something along the lines of the players didn’t know what they where doing. Please DC just keep him as a coach, don’t ruin ours and the clubs great relationship with Bullen.

I know there's so many reasons to disagree with what I'm about to say but I genuinely don't think the fans would. If bullen was in charge and the results were miserable I think Wednesday fans have too much respect for him to ever turn on him. Similar to someone like solskjaer at man u.

 

Secondly, I genuinely don't think bullen would ever let it come to that. The man has far to much respect for the club and himself. He'd simply put his hands up, say he's not up to the job and keep going whilst a suitable replacement was found. 

 

I honestly believe that 

 I do think a section of the fans would turn on him if results were bad and they would be loud and abusive. Maybe he would put his hands up and say it wasn't for him but I'd prefer not to put him in that position.

 

I don't think he wants the job but as a true servant he will step in and hold the fort until we appoint someone.

 

Don't underestimate DC he might surprise us with an excellent appointment.

What a bloke Lee Bullen is. True Wednesday legend. Steps in when the club and players need him the most and conducts himself fantastically. 

 

The only reason I don’t want him appointed is because I’d hate to see any Wednesdayite turn on him if it started going wrong. The man just simply wouldn’t deserve that. 

This a million times over. Proper decent bloke and what we need right now but not permanently.
