    Steve Bruce

    I was disappointed when he was here at a 1,000 pages, gutted he's still here at 2,000. Don't get me wrong, nobody likes a win any way we get it more than I do. Two years on I just don't have the confidence that his team and his coaching methods and style of play will get us promoted. Too often we rely on individuals to make something happen, and I'm not convinced you can rely on that for a whole season.

    With the Hutton signing I forsee a worrying trend. Are we heading down the same shit less money route?

    What exactly has Steve Bruce won since he's been with us with the most expensive squad ever assembled in the Championship?

    Alan Hutton

    We loaned him out twice since he's been with us. Average at best.

    Alan Hutton

    Have we learned nothing over the past few weeks? Short term'ism will get you nowhere. We should be saving money and developing our youngsters, not paying over aged journeyman players. Of course he can do a job for us but we want more than that. We need to rebuild our cub with youth and pace.

    I'm afraid you're completely misguided in believing that the drills and setup of the team are decided for him. Nothing could be further from the truth. The playing side, style, etc. is totally in Dean smith's control. Where the Brentford way comes in to play is on the selection and sale of players. They have algorithms, models, etc that advise them when to select or sell players, their value, etc.

    The thought of us keeping Bruce or Hutton is again hoping for a short term fix. Keeping both is suicidal.

    And the saying goes, you can't teach an old dog new tricks. I've seen nothing to suggest that keeping Bruce, with less money and talent, will provide us with either better football, promotion, or both.

    We all know the football was unpleasant to watch, nobody enjoys watching hoofball. However, the Bruce lovers continually remind us of the number of goals we scored last season. What they forget is the scary statistic that 31 times in 49 games we only scored 1 or 0 with he most expensive squad the championship has ever seen. That's what bit us in the ass.

    I'm hearing that one of the reason we should keep Bruce around is his contacts. I've never heard anything so ridiculous. It's not as if he has a secret black book. This is the 21st century. Videos and background information is available online to every manager, including their salary, injury details, strengths, weaknesses, etc. There's no secret sauce here, it's just common sense. The reason we got Terry was because we promised we would invest to get promotion. We got Snodgrass because we were the only team prepared to cover his wages. Tell me where Bruce's super secret contacts have helped elsewhere?

    If all goes well, the compo for Bruce will more than cover the 2-years we would need to buy out Dean Smiths contract. Win - Win

    I don't believe you are comparing Jokanovic and Warnock with Bruce. They had footballing philosophies and plans on how they wanted to play, albeit very different ones. Other than buy or loan the most expensive defensive players he could and try and sneak a goal, please explain how you believe his strategy is giving you the confidence that it will all come good next season?
