Well, if your question is really could we take a manager back , considering the circumstances in which he left, yes I would take him back.

 

1)  Steve Bruce has never shown loyalty in his managerial career. Not sure why any of supporters thought we would be different. 

 

2) He's a decent manager, would probably be the best we could hope for if we went for someone established. He recruited good players in the short time he was here.

 

3) When he left it was for probably his last shot at a Premier league job , which also happened to be his home town club. It was a perfectly understandable resignation.

To be fair with the payoff he’s gonna get from the Saudis, he’ll probably buy himself a solid gold trumpet and join the Barmy Army full time

Bruce liked us after our support in the play off final. I think the only two clubs he would have left us for were Newcastle or Man Utd. I didn’t want him as manager but would have him back at the drop of a hat. He carried respect and did the simple things right. I feel confident we would have made the play offs with him at least. He has his limitations but if he didn’t he would be an established Premier league manager. We have seen at close hand with CC JL and GM how important player respect is. If he took us to the prem he likely wouldn’t be good enough to move us forward so we would be the ones doing the dumping. Not that I personally want revenge I would have done the same if it was my boyhood club. Decision made easier by having Monk incumbent as we are going nowhere slow with him in charge. Definite yes from me.

Listening to the radio this morning if the take over of Newcastle goes through which is likely this time there's a good chance that Bruce some said a very good chance will be out of a job. Question is would you take him back?

I'm not sure.

Definitely yes !     UTO

Our second highest outgoing transfer fee isn’t he behind Joao? No loyalty whatsoever but that’s what contracts clauses are for. I’d have him. I’d definitely trust him to do the rebuild job that is needed when the June contracts run out. We get that wrong and we’re screwed for another 2/3/4 years

Imagine this.


Bruce gets fired. 
Chansiri fires Monk and takes Bruce back as manager.

Three months later a struggling Premier League club fire manager.

Bruce walks out on Owls to go to the club he always wanted to manage.

Everyone calls Chansiri an idiot.

 

So no it could never happen.

Imagine this, though.......

Bruce gets fired

Chansiri takes him back

Newcastle appoint grumpy two hat wilder

Owls go up

Blunts go down

Newcastle win the league

 

Now, i like that

Bruce over monk anyday please

No.

 

If we took him back he’d come back, say everything the fans wanted to hear, we’d roll over and have our bellies tickled and then he’d walk out on us again.

 

I wouldn’t want him back here.

Too much politics behind the scenes at S6

Not sure why people are outraged that Bruce left us when he got a better offer...,,,we’ve never had a manager in our recent history who wouldn’t have done exactly the same and the next ten managers will also leave if they get a better offer

Going to Newcastle was a total one off, absolutely unique situation , could he turn it down ?  As angry as I was at the time I don’t think I can hold it against him now

 

As for what he will do after Newcastle, god knows , he will be an even richer man after the likely pay off 

 

Might not even be a top target for championship clubs, don’t forget he failed miserably at Villa and we wasn’t in any danger of losing him to anyone else before Ashley reared his head

Bruce doesnt need the money and we have next to no chance of being a promotion challenging side next season.

Wasnt they also talk of broken promises to him as well?

I just cant see Bruce wanting to come back.

I also doubt Chansiri would want him.

Scored two cheating goals in Fergie time against us.

managed the pigs

Went on holiday to the cricket instead of coming to manage us.

left us in the lurch in summer by quitting and taking the coaches, shafting is to the extent we started the season with an estate agent in charge.

 

and people want him back? What more does he need to do to upset us ? Burn the ground down?

Seething when he left...still bitter about it, though he probably made the right call :duntmatter:

Would I take him back? 

 

Monk is so bad, that I probably would...begrudgingly.

I doubt 1 supporter would have had a problem him going to Newcastle his boyhood club but a lot would have a problem with him been a lying snake ,who held secret talks in a Newcastle hotel and lied through his teeth about only thing he is doing when he got back from pre season tour was to walk his dog. he is known though out his career as a lying backstabber , its a bit they having a girlfriend and she sleeps around and you take her back , I don't bloody think so , he is our ex manager leave it at that. don't mean he aint a good manager though.

I know the interview you’re referring to but what exactly should he have said? He basically wanted to get through the interview and not say anything at all which isn’t easy to do.

 

Chansiri probably told him he wasn’t allowed to go and then he walked out. He wasn’t exactly going to say ‘yeah I’m off lads’ is he when he’s employed here and the chairman doesn’t give his permission. He obviously also couldn’t put it to bed because it was true. 
 

I wouldn’t have him back but at the time he couldn’t do much else
