    I don't understand the fuss about a coach

    Makes absolutely no sense, has a club ever acted like this in the premier league?

    Just hire the man

    It seems odd almost like they want to make a big thing of something that's of course completely ****

    I'll give him a chance, as I don't know the situation at Luton nor his management style. Therefore it would he harsh for me to judge.

    He's 10 years younger than Bruce and for me thats a plus.

    Right now, we are being managed by someone way way past his sell by date. We mays well be managed by a conference manager.

    My money is on Ashley riding it out with Bruce and Bruce's asked got this guy when he was told he'd get no money for players

    I would imagine Bruce's been using every bullshit excuse possible and it's not come down him having to explain why imwgst he's got is so bad rather than what will improve it.. He's probably been funnelled into a clever where saying he hasn't got enough time to focus on what he's trying to change because it's so bad what he inherited

    I reckon Bruce plays very much into the narrative the club likes to string along, that Benitez was an expensive manager who accomplished little.

    Bruce likely bigs that narrative up in the back and the pundits lap it up.

    Essential Bruce's said I need this I need that and they've said OK we've established that you're **** at your job and we want to help you just as long as it doesn't involve giving you any more money to spend, so you can either use your phone a friend or we will sack you and if you still get it wrong then you're ****ed.

    But what seems to be passing everyone by is the fact that we are 24 days into the January transfer window and nothing has happened. I know we weren’t going to be buying any players but there was talk of loan players. Another example of sleep walking into trouble from the Ashley Book of The Idiots DIY book of Football Management.

    Graeme Jones and him arent mates tho

    This is why its so confusing and left field.

    I have my own theory, bare with me. Graeme has met or befriended one of the uppers at Newcastle, one of our scouts or someone and they've taken a liking to him.

    They're saying "listen, fellas, this Graeme guy is a class act, got talent. Look at Potter at Brighton, these things can work out."

    They've gone "ok, interesting." And can see a clear plan B.

    They've concluded that a coach is the solution and I agree actually.

    They've concluded signings aren't going to give Steve bruce a brain
