Steve Bruce interviewed for the Wolves job!

Discussion in 'Wolves' started by Hoddle is a god, Feb 17, 2012.

  1. This is according to the BBC website.

    What do you guys think about that?

    Personally, I think he's the wrong man for the job. He made a complete hash at Sunderland, doing worse than MacCarthy, given the squad he had.

    Surely, you would have been better off going for a manager from one of the Championship sides that are pushing for promotion, this season? Such as Chris Hughton (Birmingham) or Ian Holloway (Blackpool).

    Steve Bruce would be a good appointment for Wolves.

    He always does well when he first joins a club, and his style of play would suit Wolves' talentless cloggers.

    Sure he goes a bit stale after a few years but Wolves could deal with that when they get there.

    And if you think Hughton or Holloway would join Wolves you are mental.

  3. I never said they would take the job. But if you don't make the approach, how will you ever find out?

    Common sense.

    It's like saying Wolves should bid for Messi just in case.

    Wolves should get Steve Bruce in and be happy that they've replaced a **** manager with a good one.

  5. Neither Blackpool nor Birmingham are guaranteed to make the EPL next season, whereas Wolves do have a chance of surviving.

    I would have thought that Wolves would be able to offer enough to either manager, but especially Hughton, to, at the very least, give him some food for thought.

    I agree that any of those managers would at least give it some thought but the Wolves board are tight with the money so will avoid any compensation issues. None of those clubs would let their managers go without a fight and that would maybe delay or create other issues not needed with only 13 games left.

    This would be a very poor to appoint Bruce.

  9. I note that you may also be looking at Curbishley and Warnock. I think either of those would be preferable to Bruce.

    Steer well clear of Roy Keane. The man seems to be a bit of a Jonah.



    EDIT!

    Just as I wrote the above, the BBC Football website is reporting that Warnock has been appointed Leeds manager.

    Unlucky! I think he would have been great for you.

    When I saw the headline "Warnock appointed new manager" I had a massive panic attack until I realised they were talking about Leeds. I'm so relieved he's out of the running. It does seem to be coming down to Curbishley v Bruce. Keane has to be a non-starter. Let's face it, he's demonstrated more than once that he just hasn't got it as a manager.

    Bruce is a good manager and would do well at Wolves, at least for a couple of seasons.

    Bruce has had a lot of abuse thrown at him but he isn't as bad as some people make out and he's got to be better than Mick Mack.

    Utterly ridiculous replacing McCarthy with somebody who is very similar in terms of backwards management. And a recent failure at that.
    Good luck in the championship if this goes ahead.
    Surely a quick check of talented younger managers in championship / league 1 would be worth a punt other than another tired old dinosaur whos idea of success is just survival.

    People who question Bruce's managerial ability should really look at his record.

    He's been a success at every club he's managed apart from Sunderland, and he was hardly a massive failure there.

    Any thoughts/views on McDermott? He has done superbly well at Reading.

    Steve Bruce is an incompetent fat geordie who was useless at Sunderland. Take it from me I watched it, he's tactically clueless 2 home wins in a year and ffs don't appoint him before newcastle away he loves them. Devious geordie, if you appoint him put everything you own on wolves getting relegated. I wouldn't say he is the worst manager ever but he's definitely in the bottom one.
