What's bullens role in all this


Recommended Posts

Just curious where he stands with what is going on. History tells us that the chairman respects him. He may well listen to him. If it is 100 per cent the players at fault then he could verbally back monk and therefore try in some small way to unite the fans.  The only one talking at the moment is monk. He seems the only one publicly facing the media and supporters.  Don't get me wrong I know that's part of his job but he is his right hand man and we do have a club captain. Has he lost his voice too. I'm not seeing any leadership and that includes from the top.  Time for others to step up

Whoever is manager next season he needs to be allowed to bring in his own backroom staff.

I have no problems if this means Bullen is moved on. I wouldnt call him a legend but he is a popular person with his various roles and enthusiasm for the club but we don't owe him a job for life.

Puzzles me how Bullen is still there.

Again just signs of how unwilling to make changes we are.

They all need uprooting so we can truly change the guard from bottom to top.

In no way am I blaming Bullen for anything thats happened though

I’ve been in favour of Bullen staying but I really do think we’ve now reached a point where new blood is needed right through this club.

 

The only issue is.......I don’t trust DC to replace those personnel with the correct ones!!!!

We shouldn't scale goat him, as no one really knows what's happened.

 

But a Manager should be able to bring in their own backroom staff.

This is the issue that I just cant get my head around, Monk is clearly struggling but if he feels isolated may be this is why. 

 

I cant understand how Bullen is still there unless he's got some pictures of the Chairman in a controversial position.

Don't mind him being involved, but shouldn't be with the 1st team. New manager should have his own guys with him, Monk's fault for not stipulating this in his contract talks.

Bullen shouldn’t be on Monks back room staff. He is part of the problem, being mates with the old guard. We need a completely fresh start, get rid of all the current staff and allow Monk to bring in his own people. Really is ridiculous that he hasn’t been able to do this.

We don’t know Bullens contribution in this mess. We’re heading for disaster, for relegation, and the fact Monk is on his own gives him a get-out on his cv straight away. It’s like watching the Titanic heading for the iceberg, the fans shouting “iceberg ahead”, Monk shouting “hard to port, reverse all engines”, the players saying “ no probs mate, I’ve got a lifeboat” and the owner saying “don’t worry, we’re unsinkable .”

Bullen as a long-standing senior member of staff has probably contributed to the toxic culture within the club, or at least has done seemingly little to alter it. A culture where senior players have help cost managers their jobs, whereas he has remained untouched. No coincidence that Hutch and Westwood frozen out by two managers IMO. Only surprise is DC not letting Westwood go last summer, probably down to influence of Bruce. Massive clear out needed including Bullen.

This exactly

All I’d say is that when he was in temporary charge (twice) he did reasonably OK, despite the managerial position being left in limbo by DC. Don’t think he is the real problem at S6.

I doubt anyone on here knows for certain what’s going on with Bullen. He could be a yes man, or trying to change the culture from within. He could be responsible for our defensive fragility or he could be busting his ass to try and improve us. 
 

I’m going to give him the benefit of doubt and assume he is trying his best and cares for the club. All that being said, I want a complete reset next season with Bullen departing with appreciation for his effort and commitment.
