Nothing anyone can do untill January just wait we've waited 14 years 

 

I mean there is like. Someone can be a better manager to the team. He should've been getting sacked regardless of the takeover and prospect of splashing the cash in january.

I don't think they'll do that build smart support the team

Would you be a good manager with Ashley controlling you

 

Wut? :lol: 

 

Asking normal posters if they'd do a better job because they're pointing out a highly paid professional isn't even doing a good job? A very strange argument. Also, you replied to someone talking about his whole managerial career. Ashley's only been his boss for the past 2-3 years.

For me the Bruce interview is exactly why he shouldn’t be here. He represents negativity despite the overwhelmingly positive week it’s been. Rather than talking up the match and the spectacle that it should be he’s droning on, wallowing in self-pity and getting digs in. He’s the underperforming managerial representation of the Ashley era and I can’t wait until he’s no longer associated with us. Jones should have been in charge until they got someone else in. Instead we’ve given this bloke a platform to sulk in for another week or so.

Plenty can be done with a capable manager before January, are you for real?

Consortium have made a shambles of this imo- totally out of touch if they don't realise HOW unpopular that decision would be to keep Bruce in charge. Feels like they've no plan and are making it up as they go along, which is strange considering how long this saga has been going in for.

 

 

 

Comfortably the worst post I've read this year. You have managed to capture all the worst traits of a football fan there.

I mean, he has a point about the reporting that has gone on this week, and it does make you wonder who the source was. This is a wake-up call for the owners about what is to come. This club has always been a media feeding frenzy, and that has now been cranked up a million-fold, so they are going to need to step up their game and get all of their ducks in a row to avoid PR farces and keep the media sharks at bay.

 

If he can get 2 wins from the next 2 games before being peddled then I don't mind tolerating him for another week or so. But I've got zero confidence that he can do that. We just have to hope that the players get the results despite his ineptitude.

 

I really, really hope he gets zero attention from the crowd on Sunday, even if we lose badly. These owners are results-focused and they don't need pantomime booing to let them know that Bruce needs to go.

 

And I'm sorry, anyone hoping for a bad loss needs to give their heads a shake. We are deep in the shit with the fixtures we have ahead of us, and desperately need the win tomorrow.

...which is why it's a bit of an own goal to keep a hold of him even for one or two more games. His record is utter, utter dog shit, and is not likely to improve, given his past 20 years. He has absolutely no idea what he is doing. His presence is just fucking toxic, and the sooner they jettison him, the better for the club.

I don't disagree with you on that, and I'd have peddled him immediately. But the point is that the owners have not handled the media side of this well at all. They have allowed the story, that he was getting sacked, to remain out there all week and then done the opposite. It's not a good look.

 

This club and its owners are going to be scrutinised to a degree that I'm not sure the owners have yet realised, and the media will be looking to sabotage us and create a shit storm at every turn. This week should be a quick wake-up call for them.

He's gone as soon as this details are sorted and he knows it, everything about his demeanour was downbeat, he is a broken man using what little time he has left to get frustrated at anyone around him (journalists)

 

Obnoxious, petulant stain on the club that is soon to be removed
