Hairy muff, but all of that is a criticism of how Bruce has managed the team, it doesn't really relate back to Xia being like Lerner? 

Xia has spent money, appointed proper 'football people' to the board and took advice from those people regarding the manager. I'd then imagine he's trusted the manager to make the decisons on player ins and outs. Whether it's worked or not, that's EXACTLY what I want from the owner of my club. 

Exactly no one good expected Bruce to be this bad even those who didn't want him. I wasn't expecting good football just functional means to an end football. He was a short term fix to get us up. Xia has done exactly what you want from an owner. Now the short fix hasn't worked I hope he looks long term and tries to get a manager in who can instill a playing style. Southampton are the bench mark. Get a style of play then get managers and players that fit it. Then you always do well as everything is changeable.

I'm interpreting that as he's sticking with Bruce. 

Idiot. 

That is how I have interpreted it too but could be wrong.

Basically sounds like he is saying he needs to support Bruce in order for him to improve and reach his full potential.

There's nowt cryptic there. He believes in Bruce's strengths ahead of his weaknesses and he's sticking with him for now. 

I'm taking my lad to only his 2nd game on Saturday, I'm not sure I want him to feel the atmosphere if we go behind or lose. He probably won't want to go back.

Sticking with Bruce because of a stupid self help book? Give me a beak! 

I would have preferred the silence over this patronising bollox.

The old saying about a fool and his money springs to mind - xia will lose the support of a lot of fans over this decision .

Really wish he would have just said straight up or kept quiet until he has made his mind up. Not a good time to be leaving us supporters in the dark and sending out cryptic messages...

We aren't in the dark.

Bruce is the manager until such time as he goes and frankly that is about it.

How many times have we seen clubs say they are sticking with a manager then sack him hours or days later? 

Its called the dreaded vote of confidence for a reason.
