If Steve Bruce had stayed

Steve Bruce is an unloyal rat who will soon get the treatment that he deserves!! He’s done it to several clubs including us and he will soon know what it feels like. 

And he will be several million pounds richer.

One of the great footballing roasters, despised by pretty much every club he has managed including his current one.

 

Jos was delivering the brief - save the club from meltdown, by releasing all the top players, getting kids in and somehow staying up to restart. Bruce turned up late , brought back and recontracted a broken goalie on huge wages, signed the woeful borner, odebajo, lined up the crock Luongo on big wages and blew the last chance we had of financial salvation. He then left on the eve of a season and cleaned our staff out so badly we started the season with an estate agent in charge.

 

One of our worst ever managers. In there with Pulis and eustace.

We saw enough in his brief time here to be optimistic that he’d have taken us up.

 

We lost 3 games in about 20 in his time here. And his contacts and acumen was finding us some gems.

 

Wish he’d stayed, and I’d have him back tomorrow.

Probably the best manager that Chansiri has employed at S6.

To be fair he didn't have a chance to have his descions work for him did he. Only because they were bad after he went doesn't mean they wouldn't have been good for him.

‘ his’ decisions - iE to reverse the Jos policy of getting rid of all the high earners and building a cheaper, younger fitter team ultimately was responsible for our relegation.

 

Jos was carrying out the brief we needed carrying out to stop financial Armageddon. DC bottled it and hired Bruce.

This is pure rubbish sorry. 
 

The points deduction would have happened regardless of whether Bruce was in charge or not. The damage was done long before Bruce became manager.

 

Jos was delivering no brief. He couldn’t sign players due to an embargo. Similarly neither could Bruce, which is why we signed a load of free agents before he jumped ship.

 

Financial meltdown was nothing to do with any of the managers. You’re twisting history big time here. It was down to one man and one man only.

 

Only thing you have a point on is Westwood. But then again, how have we done for goalkeepers in the past couple of years?

I remember watching the 4-2 defeat away at Blackburn in Jos final games. Probably the unfittest Wednesday performance I’ve ever seen. Players absolutely puffing out their arse after 25 minutes. Forestieri couldn’t even be arsed to warm up at half time. He came on and pulled his hamstring and was out for weeks.

 

Jos was a shambles.

I would argue the second worst after Pulis 

You can argue till you are blue in the face quite frankly. Bruce's track record in his managerial career stands up against all the other incumbents of the S6 hotseat during the Chansiri period.

He isnt my cup of tea personally but the fact that he is the only one of our ex managers to be still managing in Englands top flight is a big clue that he's a fairly decent manager.

To be fair he somehow pulled off this masterstroke.
