Steve Bruce (now unemployed)


Recommended Posts

So Bruce says that he'd like to have clarity on his future. He also says he would like to carry on with the job. He says that any team in the bottom half of the table are fighting relegation and that is the position we were in when he walked through the door. He also says we have been fighting relegation for 6 years.

This guy obviously believes that our current situation has nothing to do with his management

I think this is due to PIF making the final decision. Its clear Staveley doesn't want him here as she failed to back him in her opening interview after taking control of the club. 

 

I think PIF want to double check everything instead of letting them spend £8M straight away by sacking someone. Maybe they don't fully understand football yet and haven't yet realised what a manager like Bruce remaining in charge can do to the club. From their point of view it certainly would look strange when people are saying the team would perform better without a manager being there. 

 

I'm sure good discussions were had yesterday and once the speed of decisions are made quicker between PIF and Staveley, situations like this won't drag out as long. But hopefully we won't ever be in this kind of situation again!

He'll go, either today or tomorrow. Am surprised it hasn't been announced yet to be honest.

 

The only possible delay I can think of is down to them wanting something else in place so they can just make the announcements and not have to entertain the circus.

 

Steve Bruce still officially being in the job gives them the breathing room to negotiate with at least some amount of privacy.

The rumour was he's getting sacked in the next 24/48 hrs, that was yesterday. So assuming that's true, they obviously do understand the situation we are in. 

And if it’s not ?

:lol: Like, if there was NO WAY he could get the job...I might??? He'd win matches. Like Pardew for six months (I can hear how mad I've gone) would steady the ship. Bruce is so much worse than Pardew man.

Nurse!!!

Tyler fell into the ‘he’s had to do it on a shoestring’ narrative as well during commentary, despite Sky Sports themselves saying he’s had the 8th biggest net spend since he took over as manager.

I picked up on this too.  Said it like he was powerless to change it.  Not once have I ever seen him implore the players to push up.  He's like a spectator.
