    Playing devil's advocate here, but that’s partly due to the fact that Bruce is usually in charge of promoted clubs, and their win percentage is obviously lower.

    Fuck VAR
    Even less chance of him selling up
    No matter what your thoughts on Fatty. He is a shrewd businessman and will hold out until what he believes is the right offer is made

    Couple of Barcodes where I work are truly underwhelmed with the appointment of Bruce. One thinks they'll go down.

    Wouldnt be hard to find another 50k+ fans who feel the same.

    Completely bizarre appointment but he will probably be on the lowest wages in the league and Ashley has already cashed in on some of their best players so he isn't interested now.

    Joelinton will be a good signing for them.

    Fair enough, there is some truth in what you say. It does raise the question though of why a more established Premier League club never gave him an opportunity. A wider issue to me, though, is who was the real beneficiary of the statistically worst two established premier league managers continually buying rag cast offs?

    You make a very good point about why Bruce hasn’t been offered jobs higher up the chain; I’d never thought about it.

    And I forgot to mention in my earlier reply that captain cripple was a simply atrocious manager.

    He made Pearce look like Pulis.

    Just checked on my bet here and I could actually cash out with a profit right now! Says what the bookies think of Bruce anyway.

    Looks as if Bruce may not be their manager

    Annoys me that a fat charlatan like the elephant man can get a job in the PL when there are much more talented and younger managers out there dying for an opportunity to manage a club like the barcodes. I bet you if he wasn't an ex rag he'd disappear off the face of the earth.
