    Steve Walkabout Bruce

    Looks like our ex manager is going to do it again since he started the ball rolling with the Blades. At the time I had some sympathy with him as our Board were in a mess. Didn't realise he was going to make a career out of it.

    Us, Hudders, Wigan, Birmingham, Hull and now it looks like Villa where he has jumped ship when the going got tough. Got a good promotion record from the championship but you know he's not going to stay long when you appoint him and you'd better have deep pockets.

    Absolute fraud of a manager. Just like Redknapp.

    In the interest of balance,we all loved Bruce when his Hull beat the Arrogants for us.

    Having said that,he is a twot

    I agree wi your thoughts abart Brucie 58 but let's be r8 there aint much loyalty from some owners or some fans towards managers if things aren't goin well is there? Make no mistake some will turn on our Chris if we have a poor start to next season,not many hopefully but some will.I see Alan Stubbs has got another job(StMirren)i thought after the mess he made at Rovrum that'd be him done as a manager,but i spose he did well at Hibs.

    You're right Rod, but you have to remember. as with any job, there are employers and there are employees.

    He is paid to do a job and as long as that takes place he has a responsibility to his employers and the fans to fulfil his duties

    Bruce has a track record, despite being paid by his employers, of p1ssing off as soon as it gets tough and as soon as he has to show true management skills because money becomes tight

    If Villa get new owners they'd sack him in a heart beat. I personally value loyalty quite highly, but I'm afraid football is one of those cases of 'Do unto others, before they do unto you'

    Can see much difference between a manger who looks for clarification about the transfer budget and Bruce
