Definitely worth a bet for Managers job- either by Easter or end of season on most of the main betting sigthts. Gathering momomentum now. Worth a cheeky fiver for sure. I will speculate my hard earnings on a 20 bet. Could be in the money soon?!!

Not too sure what I'd make of his appointment. Did a good job at Birmingham and Wigan but was a bit indifferent at Sunderland.

Hes got a big fat head

ice cream head
02-02-2012, 23:20
He's probably the best of the rest atm. Did well at Wigan in particular and isn't afraid to utilize the foreign market. Lets not forget he bought in Valencia, Cattermole, Rodeaga (sp) Zaki (who was a good player if a bit insane) and Nzogbia. During his tenure there, Wigan finished 11th and 14th. Not bad at all.

02-02-2012, 23:25
Even though he was turd at trying to get Sunderland up the table he did a fine job of keeping them in the Premier League. Got Sessengon as well so has a good eye in the foreign market

No way.

He frittered away money at Sunderland and was heavily criticised for his out of date techniques.

Warnock is no better than mick. Both great championship managers but limited in the prem. neither are able to move a club forwards in the long term from the bottom up.

If wolves are thinking long term, which they clearly do, if we replace Mick we need a club builder - someone who builds for the future. Techniques, technology, coaching, youth playes, etc.

I`d save your mone buddyy. Personally, I think you`d have to be insane to employ Steve Bruce. If he is appointed you may want to put some cash on the chairman being out oF their job within three years...

I`d estimate between one half and two-thirds of managers don`t deserve their jobs and Bruce is a prime example of this..

It would be madness to replace one tactically limited clog merchant with another in the same mould.

There is no way I would want Bruce, to be honest I still think Mick deserves to see the season out. The time to change him was November not with 15 games to go.

I do beleive if we lose the next two the presure would be enormous and Morgan may act, but I think Mick needs four points from these two at least.

03-02-2012, 08:03
Not sure Bruce is the right man to replace MM if he was to go. There aint really any good managers out there at the moment. Only good ones are already in a job, such as big sam, etc. Keep the faith and I am sure the players and MM will turn it around

Danwolf
03-02-2012, 08:33
IMO there would be no point sacking MM if you're going to replace him with Bruce. I dont think we'd be any better off.

The Klinsmann shout above is a great one - however, I dont think we could persuade him to swap his US home for one in Wolverhampton!

I woud rather have my my mouth wedged open and be force fed excrement than have Steve 'Bea Smith, old lesbian head Bruce as manager.

Hes as equally pathetic as David (my babies) O'Dreary.

Track his career. The loyalty hes shown Those clubs who hes left as soon as a bigger opportunity comes along. Then the inevitable wobbly patch at the bigger clubswhen hes not far from the bullet he pops out with the "chairmen need to show loyalty to managers"

I $$$$ing hate this $$$$.

I hope the morgan Liverpool / man utd rivalry mean this is a non starter

I remember reading this at the time.

Bruce is emphatically the wrong choice for us -wrong, wrong, wrong.

We need a younger, progressive and forward thinking manager to take us forward.

Bruce has done well at all the clubs he has been at apart from this season at Sunderland. Venables has always been a progressive thinker and he would get the team playing the ball on the deck. Either would be a good option imo.

venables? why do people always go back to him, he's awful i've never understood the love for him.

bruce, warnock et al - football has moved on. fresh ideas are needed.

but then what will appease the crowd? in my opinion a manager who plays high tempo direct (not long ball) attacking football or at least something approaching that.

Im not going into sources, but a year ago somebody I know connected to the club told me outright that Terry Connor is like a Cancer at the club. His attitude to people is atrocious, and his demeanour is like Johnny Big Balls!! Whatever happens to MM I would surgically remove him and anything to do with him without delay.

If I sat down, racked my brains from now until.....well, the end of time possibly, I don't think I could come up with a choice of potential new manager worse than Steve Bruce. He is EVERYTHING we don't need and the only thing he could possibly be said to have in his favour is that he's available.

Big Mack
03-02-2012, 12:17
The way I see it, and I don't necessarily agree, is that the board will keep Mick until at least the end of the season. If we go down he has proven that he can get us up so they will keep him (handily forgetting the major slump we had in our promotion season). If we stay up, they will have a major decision to make. Personally, I'd wave him goodbye if we stay up and get someone more progressive in. That person is not Steve Bruce.

Chungster
03-02-2012, 12:20
Sorry, I've changed my mind.

If I sat down, racked my brains from now until.....well, the end of time possibly, I don't think I could come up with a choice of TWO potential new managers worse than Steve Bruce and Neil Warnock. They are EVERYTHING we don't need and the only thing they could possibly be said to have in their favour is that they are available.

Surprised no-one has mentioned Curbishley, did a terrific job on a similar budget to ours at Charlton and whilst it didn't exactly work out at West Ham he certainly did a lot better than any of his predecessors.

I doubt whether he would listen to them if they suggested a different way of playing, which is what is needed to go along with teaching the team how to pass, how to move, how to trap, how to shoot. I don't think he has the kind of personality that would take advice on football matters if that advice went against his football principles.

Funilly enough I have this morning been with a builder client who has recently finished work on some alterations to the place Bruce was living up here in the North East. He finished 100k of work the week before Bruce was sacked!

He's meeting Bruce on Monday to settle his account and sort a few snags out as Bruce is moving next week back to his 'family' home which he has kept on in Birmingham area. Ideally he's looking to work back in the Midlands again next.

O'Neill's 19 points from 9 games is really making Bruce's management record look bad... we should steer clear at any cost in my opinion.

FLEET WOLF
03-02-2012, 16:59
So would I!

And me!

Probably Steve Bruce/Warnock are no better than Mick, in all honesty, so there is an argument to say better the devil you know!

There would be a clear temptation to keep him if we go down, because he might be able to get us straight back up-however, we are likely to lose a lot of our best players and it may depend on how much of that money is given to spend.

There is also a temptation to keep him if we stay up of course. If that happens, I hope Morgan reconsiders the priorities at the Club also reconsiders, to an extent, the wage/transfer budget structure.

I am a Mick supporter, but my head says that really it has all gone a bit stale, so, on balance, I would probably get rid of him, whether we are relegated or not. That may of course depend on how we finish the season-if he turns it round so that we are safe with a game or two to go (!), with lots of good wins and playing well, then it is a difficult one!

Paul76
03-02-2012, 17:07
I'm not overly keen on Bruce, but I think he's better than Mick.

He's got a lot of experience in the Premier league and he's pretty good in the transfer market. I was very impressed with him whilst he was at Wigan.

Struggled at Sunderland, was sacked far too prematurely though.

OoohRobbieRobbie
03-02-2012, 17:19
I would be devestated if we got Steve Bruce in personally, or WarnCock for that matter. I'd rather Poyet over those two, but I still have my reservations about him. I genuinely think we should get a foreign manager with good player links, continental flair, a decent track record at a decent level, who installs a passing-possession ethos into their clubs. Co Adriaanse is the best shout I've heard so far, I'd be very happy with that. Dick Advocaat is at Russia but I'd love us to try and temp him here. Rafa would not come, nor would we entertain the idea - love him or hate him, he'd attract names and his teams play very good football, proven good football. Mind you, I can say all I want about bringing in a foreign manager with the intent to add a spark to Wolves, that's probably far too ambitious or 'risky' in the clubs eyes.

He really is an appalling manager: "I'm not really into tactics." No great surprise there.

I might well get destroyed for this but I honestly (and I'm not saying this to provoke a reaction, only to emphasise my destain for Bruce) would rather Terry Connor get the job.

I read a great article about Bruce a couple of days ago, definitely worth a read. For me, it sums him up:

We have a squad of battlers really and i was thinking which manager currently out of a job could get them playing. Imo Joe Kinnear is the man for us. Gets the best out of players and did fantastically at Wimbledon against all the odds. Just what we need.

:D With Howard Wilkinson as his number two? Dreamland.

With MON and Hughes off the scene Morgan had no realistic option to replace MM - he has now - Steve Bruce, whatever we may think of him. Lose today, esp if it's a bad defeat and Morgan will bring in Bruce prior to the Albion game.

I am still not sure that if I won the bet I put on at 7/1, I would be pleased or not? Still would prefer Curbs than 160 back.

Bruce in = One previous Premier failure replaced by another who has failed previously.

Well at least they would be consistent.

I wouldn't say Bruce was a failure at all.

Had his time at Wigan and Sunderland been reversed, we'd be absolutely chomping at the bit to get him in.

One poor season does not a bad manager make.

Still want Curbs though.

I will feel really sorry for Curbs if we don't appoint him. IMO this is probably his last chance at Premier League management.

As for Bruce. I. DO. NOT. WANT. HIM. HERE.

Bruce is not loyal at all. Say if he come here and got an offer from, say, Stoke (random I know), he'd jump ship without a second's thought. Curbs, on the other hand, is reported to want to stay here and build us into a top half team. That is loyalty. Plus, he was at Charlton for 15 years.

This is the last man I want to see as Wolves Manager. Inspite of the millions spent at Sunderland, his team was always around the relegation places, then comes O'Neil with the same players, and Sunderland move to the top half of the table.

I would like to see Cush. as Wolves Manager.

I too don't particularly want him here...but I think he ended up having made a profit at Sunderland.

That's the way I'm looking at it, too - even though he is not our preferred choice (or the preferred choice of the majority, rather) he really does have a much better record than Mick in this league and got Birmingham promoted - twice. As long as he doesn't try and spunk money here and replace our entire first eleven in the summer...

How will Bruce manage as we wont pay the wages and he therefore wont be able to get the "tools" he needs to do a job. We lost out on Dann because we couldnt match the late offer made by Blues.

Interesting times ahead, my worst memory is that the last people to sing Micks name were the fans taking the $$$$ out of us last sunday.

And that is a very sad state of affairs but one I fully understand.

As I've said elsewhere Morgan and Moxey have to be very careful who they appoint. Make a mess of things to add to the disaster that has been this season to date and the fans could turn away.

Wolv3nsam
17-02-2012, 19:28
He still has a significantly better record than Mick, a whole 10% more wins IIRC. So it is an improvement whichever way you look at it. I would much rather have Curbishley and feel if we get Bruce we may stick with the same footballing philosophies we have at the moment - but he can't have fluked his entire career could he? He certainly got the best out of Sunderland last season, and what's not to say Fletcher couldn't be our own Darren Bent. I'm warming to him, probably because I can picture him in our tracksuit in the dugout to be honest...

I'd rather Bruce than curbs.

There. I've said it.

But in reality I don't want any of the ones we know have been interviewed. And given the club would have to approach a club for a manager in work which we'd then know about we can safely say we are going to appoint someone out of work. Such ambition Wolves, such ambition.

As others have said I do really wonder if the 2Ms and the rest of the board actually watch football or just work in it.

Asked a Blues fan and he reckons he's a good manager but his style is 'very defensive' and he isn't very loyal at all! Couldn't speak highly enough of Hughton though.

IMO there would be no point sacking MM if you're going to replace him with Bruce. I dont think we'd be any better off!

Absolutely.

17-02-2012, 20:34
We are where we are whatever you think of the timing. I didn't speak to anyone in the aftermath of last Sunday who could defend Mick. In these set of circumstances, Bruce til the end of the season maybe the best on offer and we need to start getting used to that if we want any hope of staying up.

Bugsy911
17-02-2012, 21:54
As much as I think it was right to sack Mick after what had been constant bad results, poor team selections , bizzare tactics and rank bad luck I cannot even begin to understand why we would be looking at Bruce.

If Bruce is what we end up with I would rather have kept Mick , hindsight is a wonderful thing and what some of us including me wished for will more than likely be out of the frying pan and into the fire.

Things must be desperate when Bruce is even being interviewed! How posters on here would be happy with his appointment beggars belief! Look at the Sunderland situation and what Martin O'Neill has achieved with the same players!
The thought of seeing his appointment being announced on Monday doesn't bear thinking about!
