Steve Bruce (now unemployed)


Recommended Posts

Yeah, I think they are wary of sacking Brucie's 3-4 people as there's so few experienced coaching staff at the club. The owners probably fear that the players might react even worse if they're prepared for PL games by Gr Jones and a group of youth coaches. Plus Shearer and Caulkin might have said a good word about Brucie's "integrity", Lascelles might've mentioned that he's a good guy.. 
Same reason why Charnely is still employed - there's nobody else to do the daily stuff. 

We should be patient. It's important that Amanda and Mehrdad get the initial appointments correct, despite their lack of experience in football.

It’s no wonder we’re so shite when they had a long weekend off and then another day off 3 days before a game ffs.

 

There's only so many star jumps a man can do.

Its such an easy PR win for the new owners.

Only with NUFC fans though.

Everyone outside of our bubble is already gunning for us and looking for a reason to have a go and to twist the knife. Bruce has mates in the media so from a PR perspective, it could work against them to kick him out without even taking some considered time to talk to him and to see how he operates from a day to day.
In effect, letting him do his job is allowing him the rope to hang himself with as they can say they've seen the day to day operation and feel that a change is necessary.

I'm not worried about it, even if he takes Sundays game he hasn't got long left and when they do replace it will be quality. Probably better than rushed decisions. Can always spend a few hundred million in January to recover 😁

Good point. Bruce will be peddling his 'insider info' to the highest bidder, once he's gone.

should be more ruthless than that.

see how successful chelsea have been.

no time for sentiment or what the media/public think.

 

Chelsea have had a squad and reserve squad of top players each time. And they've replaced top class managers with top class managers. It's hardly comparable to us at all, and also not a rule of thumb every club follows.

I suspect this is as simple as the new owners want to have the new structure agreed and the people ready to join first before removing the old one, especially as the old one is vastly inadequate and undermanned. It looks like this takeover happened so fast that whatever previous discussions for people joining have to be revisited, because things like Rafa at Everton and potentially other people for big roles are no longer available and different ones are. If Conte was to be spoken to I can't see that being something to sort out in a few days when the whole club internally needs shake up from top to bottom. Conte would want to know who is DoF, who is running day to day etc. - we don't even know that yet.

 

Just relax. Sacking Bruce now doesn't equal Spurs game win by default. I'd even not care if Bruce and his team were here for a few weeks as the rest of the hierarchy from Barnes, Charnley, a DoF etc. are sorted. If weeks do go by and nothing changes I'd be concerned. If we get to January and it's still Bruce I'd be angry as that's incompetence. Waiting a week or even two or three to get new team in place and Bruce replaced is fine with me. The reality is more complicated than hire/fire immediately. Sooner is better, but right decision is more important.

 

Has any takeover sacked the status quo within 24 hours and replaced them before!? Genuine question.

I don’t think anyone has no however I don’t think anyone has been second bottom with someone has bad as Bruce before either

That's perfect ammunition for Amanda to bin the useless cunt.

Fancy being the manager of a club on the brink of possibly a great period in it's history and not making any effort to try to impress the new owners :lol:

Could the guy be any more of an embarrassment.

We need to stop acting like this Spurs game is final game of season and a must win to stay up, and sacking Bruce is only answer to that. That's what this over dramatised "sack Bruce now" after days of being taken over comes across like when citing the second from bottom stuff.

 

New owners are here and it's a couple days in to their stewardship, Bruce surely will go, it's super early in the season for second from bottom to matter given the squad we have. No matter who comes in they will take some time to get this side turned around, but will have plenty of time through (hopefully) November and December to get things better, and January to spend. Bruce out now or in say 3 weeks is unlikely to be the difference of us staying up or not. I'd prefer sooner, but I'd also prefer it done right and with right replacement.

People have a right to question the decision to keep Bruce around for Sunday like, its a perfectly legitimate discussion.

 

But it's a decision that hasn't been made.

And it rightly can be challenged back as over dramatic and too negative given context of how early in the season it is, how the owners have barely been here a few days and we know the structure of the clubs management is woefully thin to make changes without firm plans for who is coming in to replace.

We all want Bruce gone and I'm sure he will be replaced with someone better. I'm surprised people can't see bigger picture of it not really mattering too much as long as he does get replaced in the coming weeks. 

 

 

Christ, if things are this tetchy over instant sacking of Bruce there will be hell to pay if someone like Lampard or Gerrard gets the gig. :lol:

Fair enough, I agree in the long term, it probably won't make too much of a difference when he is eventually shown the exit, but that doesn't means giving him a stay of execution wouldn't be a mistake. I don't think its overdramatic or moaning to say as much.

It's more than that though. It's case of the atmosphere and feel good feeling on Sunday could be huge.

If we pick up a point or even better 3. That could be a real springboard into Palace and beyond.

That disgrace of a manger will only bring the fans and the players down.

What happens if he flukes a win and the plan was for the new manager  supposed to come in next Monday? Would be a PR disaster for the owners.

Don't think so. I'm sure managers have ben sacked after a victory in the past.
