I completely understand people saying no to Bruce...he left us and let's be honest we are not used to our managers getting headhunted.

 

It happens all the time though in football. It's not like he left us for another Champ club.

 

But isn't the fact our manager was actually wanted by prem clubs a good thing? It means we actually have a good manager, an asset. 

 

Not a journeyman manager who we picked up of the dole.

 

We need to look at this like a business.

 

Bruce is respected, successful and has a good track record.

 

He has good contacts and is quite good in  the transfer market.

 

If he gets poached by a prem club it means we are probably doing well and we get a nice payday.

 

Think of it like signing players which we know we can sell for a profit. 

 

Sure the upheaval of losing a manager isn't great but we were sat in 3rd at Xmas. 

 

He's a good manager and better than any manager we could get.. for free.

The way he left absolutely no chance. I understand why he wanted to leave but surely no chance we go back there.

and as much as he is a decent manager we fans and the club deserve a better caliber of person.

 

 I don't think DC would have him back as his culture is big on honour and Bruce showed him he none.

Yeah, that's a good point. 

 

Ashley and Bruce didn't handle the whole thing amazingly well. Probably pissed DC off.

 

I would imagine DC holds a grudge.

We have a precedence when we took BFR back.

Did us a good job on his return and we should have renewed his contract.

Only petty revenge meant we lost him. We went on a downward spiral from then on.

A no from me.

I fully understand why he went and don't have a problem with that, but the timing of it just 3 weeks before the start of the season didn't help us at all.

 

I know we got off to a half decent start but still.

Everything you say is right but we need a manager who can build something over 2 or 3 years. Bruce wouldn't stay around that long. The first sign of success and a bigger club would be in for him and hed be off, dropping us back in it.

I think he burnt his bridges with DC, so largely irrelevant.

 

Better than Monk for sure, but it's a no from me. I dont think he carries enough goodwill with the fanbase and judging by his comments before joining us about considering retirement, suspect this latest payoff will see him retire.

 

He's had a good career and managed his 'boyhood club' in the EPL. Not sure what attraction a bottom half championship club would hold compared to watching more cricket etc.

Seeing as theres a chance of the season being voided, If we got him back he technically wouldn’t have ever left in terms of league games played

This 100%...learn from previous mistakes, unfortunately only the fans remember this, DC will be totally unaware

I’d have him back

 

Lees has been erratic, Borner inconsistent.  Iorfa would certainly benefit and improve further from having an experienced old head at the side of him.

Might be a good manager. But why would anyone take him back so he can shaft us again when his head next got turned?

 

Not something we have to worry about with Monk as no chance anyone else would want him.

 

If you have a good manager then they are in demand, it's the risk you run.

I agree with you about Big Ron. However Ron had Wednesday playing the best football Iv'e ever seen us play. Bruce had everything to prove with us still and left in a really short period of time. I'll sit on the fence with this as I have my doubts it would work with Bruce second time round and he and his team of coaches don't come cheap.

Yes and no 

 

the guy stabbed us in the back, but he did well with what we’ve got too.

whats to say he wouldn’t leave us again for a potentially better job for him

Pointless question to be honest as there will be very little managerial movement, if any, at the moment. 
 

As much as we slated him when he left us, I think he’s done a decent job considering he was following benitezs footsteps, not to mention having to work under mike ashley
