Steve Bruce (now unemployed)

I understand what you are saying, but there is zero benefit in having him around at all anymore. In fact him being there damages our chances for Sunday and will dampen the atmosphere.

 

I guess I'm seeing the journey ahead rather than the current situation. One match isn't going to shape our future, the next 10+ years are.

 

Fuck him, he's done. I don't really care if it's today or next week, he's not our future, just be happy about that.

If Rangnick is interested then just get him in now. If we have to wait due to current contract he can still have a say in who the next manager is. Stay away from x, get one of y. See you in 3 months.

Again I agree, however my concern is he flukes a win on Sunday and then that’s him here for another couple of games

 

I just think we need to use the momentum and feel good the takeover bought and really try use it the next few weeks and for me Bruce stops a lot of that.

It obviously doesn't matter in terms of points, but it matters in terms of clearing the decks and keeping the momentum going.

 

I guess anyone who hasn't watched us in detail might not realise that having no manager is better than having Steve Bruce as manager. 

 

Still believe he'll be out soon though, although I don't understand what the delay is.

Could they be waiting for the best time to give us another party atmosphere? Sunday morning, few hours before the Spurs game, give everyone a boost ...

Well, to be frank Jones' managerial record is hardly stellar

 

Wholeheartedly agree and not what I meant really.

 

I understand Jones is part of the issue whether that's because of his doing or whatever, but we stand to lose nothing shedding Bruce off with Jones still there.

 

In fact it'd be worse on Sunday if Bruce was there regardless of result.

Every potential decision to do with the club under Ashley I used to get massively chewed about, because you knew that there was a 90% chance of it ending in disappointment or inertia.  With this, I've never been more relaxed about anything in my life...could be today, could be tomorrow, but he's definitely getting the boot this week.  I'm far more stressed about who they might bring in to replace him tbh.

I don’t understand why people are shitting themselves like. There’s been absolutely no indication that they want to keep him. As much as we’d like him to have been potted first thing yesterday morning in the real world there are things like contracts, admin and even more importantly understanding the impact of sacking most of our coaching staff in preparation for the next game.

Tend to agree logically, but I’ll also be really disappointed if he’s on the touchline against Spurs. Definitely wouldn’t be able to celebrate the new era fully. 

 

It'll be hilarious man. Everyone singing positive songs about Amanda, Bruce appears and the comedy booing starts. 

 

As I said before, make him think he's getting his 1000th game then sack him 5 minutes before kick off on the pitch.

Don't get this Jones love at all...despite his influence were still a diabolical team to watch, and his record isn't great at all. Being marginally better than Steve doesn't make him any good. 

 

Yes he impressed enough to make the England coaching scene, but the fact he left almost immediately after the tournament should show he's nothing special. If he was the FA would have tried to keep him

 

He should be out the door with the Steves. We don't need a failed league 2 manager running a team in the top level

You have to have someone there on Sunday - and it can't be Bruce. Realistically, is their time to get a manager in now, without rushing it and potentially making a bad decision?

 

IMO, sack Bruce, tell Graeme he has a few games as caretaker manager while they appoint a full time team. 

 

No one will care on sunday if its Jones leading them out, the atmosphere will be horrendous if its Bruce still. He has to go simple.

Suspect he’s only there on a  Temporary basis…..can’t sack everyone ,someone has to do the coaching and run the team till a full time replacement is found.Whether Jones will be asked to stay on in a coaching capacity will be up to the new manager.

Don’t think a single person would boo Jones. They don’t see him as any bit of the ass that is Bruce. Today is Tuesday, match is Sunday. There’s time. 
 

Everyone in Saudi will be watching. The world will be watching. Yasir is flying in for it. There’s no logical reason to allow Bruce to have any bit of impact on Sunday.
