All their chat about wanting to do things the professional and patient way and this fucking clown is starting fights with journalists :lol: 

 

No kneejerk decisions and an unexpectedly standoff attitude actually makes a lot of sense from the new owners. Honestly get the feeling they might just be keeping Bruce around just long enough to be sure exactly who else from heirarchy needs to go with him. 

 

Football aside, one thing I've learned about shit managers: the ones that somehow stay in jobs against all odds are usually held up by a string of allies on either side of the chain. 

 

Even if he's the source, Bruce could well have other allies still at the club who could continue the rot if they're not also removed.

 Who has Pearce managed? 

No one of importance at the time. Your guess is as good as mine as to why he’s in there. 
 

I didn’t read all this shit by the way:

Quote

Stuart Pearce MBE was most recently manager of Nottingham Forest.

Pearce is a true playing legend of the game who is now making a siginificant impression in coaching after his playing experiences where he was managed by some of the greats including - Brian Clough, Terry Venables and Sir Bobby Robson.

He began his playing career at Wealdstone in 1982, before a transfer to the big time, spending two years at Coventry City. However it was at Nottingham Forest that Pearce spent most of his time, becoming a legend for club and country. By the last count his playing career took in 570 games (scoring 72 goals) at club level and an incredible 78 caps for England. Those figures however, don't tell the story of England's most committed left back in their history – key memories include a sapping penalty miss in the 1990 World Cup semi-final, only exorcised in Euro 96 when he scored a spot-kick against Spain (providing the tournament with one of its iconic images). His time at Forest came to an end after the 1996/97 season, which also included his first managerial post (more of which later) – he had spent 12 years with the club, making more than 500 appearances. From there he moved to Newcastle United (playing 37 games) before a spell at West Ham (42 games over 2 years). His final club, in terms of playing was Manchester City where he became a crowd favourite. He joined the club in the summer of 2001 and spent a season combining his playing role with that of defensive coach before hanging up his boots.

Following that taster coupled with his early forage into management it was obvious where Pearce's ambitions lay, and he began his journey as coach at City under Kevin Keegan. As mentioned earlier, there was a brief 23 game spell in charge of Nottingham Forest during the last 5 months of the 1996/7 season. Pearce picked up his first ever Manager of the month award - it was enough to show Stuart the way forward, and it was not until 8 years later when he finally got a big opportunity of his own.

When Kevin Keegan left the Manchester City in March 2005, Pearce was appointed as caretaker manager until the end of the season. This time his time in charge was a massive success, as he guided the blue half of Manchester to 4 wins, 4 draws and only 1 defeat – meaning safety in the top League, with City only just missing out on a place in the UEFA Cup when Robbie Fowler missed an injury time penalty against Middlesbrough in the last game.

It was a done deal – the players wanted him, the fans wanted, the pundits wanted him, but most importantly the board wanted him, and he was given the job full-time. It was time to mould the team and show the world the way forward, his way. He began the season with a five game unbeaten run (including a fine point in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford), picking first Manager of the Month Award to add to the one he won during the last month of the previous season – he was on his way.

As a man of ambition, he was looking further a field and when the England Under-21 job came up he grabbed it with both hands taking over on 1st February 2007 in a part time role. He led the team into the Under-21 European Championships in Holland. It was then after his departure from City that Pearce was confirmed as the full time manager of the U21 national team.

It left him free to concentrate on the U21 and he led the team all the way to a mammoth semi-final against the holders and host Holland. Despite missing out in the semis, Pearce would then lead his team to the final of the 2009 UEFA Under-21 Championships in Sweden where his impressive record continued.

Combining his successes with the U21s, Pearce also made a significant contribution to the senior side by helping Fabio Capello guide England to the FIFA World Cup Finals 2010 in South Africa.

Later, Pearce led the Great Britain team at the 2012 London Olympics. In June 2013 and after last six years with the U21s, Pearce left the role at The FA. In total he successfully guided England to four European Under-21 Championships.

It is one thing developing a team in his mould, but he is a manager who lives the game – kicking every ball, and showing the fans his appetite for the role through his demonstrative style both on the pitch and on the touchline. He is in short a manager on the move, a young English manager whose stock is rising.

Pearce has also successfully completed the League Managers Association's Certificate in Applied Management course, run in conjunction with Warwick University.

Just makes me think of Sansa Stark's dismissal of Ramsay Bolton - "You will be forgotten, your name will be forgotten, your life will be forgotten" or words to that effect.

My first game saw Wynn the Leap score the winner against Man City.

If I see them this season I will have seen games in 7 decades

In a bizarre coincidence there is a picture of this game in an article in today's guardian

:lol: Honestly only in football could some fucking idiot that’s clinging on to his job for an £8m pay off be framed as doing some noble thing that should be highly respected. What’s he fucking done? Had about 3 days work where he’s probably phoned it in as per, and got pissy at the first question asked despite knowing full well the questions that were coming. Bruce is more than welcome to quit the job, literally everyone bar him would be buzzing if he did.

Football is a weird, parallel universe to what the rest of us live in. Bruce is praised for reaching 1000 games yet won less than a third of them, Rashford knocks out a few tweets and gets an MBE while all those working for charities or saving lives go unnoticed. Players moaning how tough it is to live on £50k a week when the rest of us are living on less than that a year.  

Im sure the media would be delighted if Woodward gave Bruce the Man Utd job once Ole gets the sack, They really deserve each other.

Just Edwards’ latest blatant attempt to wind up the fans. Not that I disagree with anything you’re saying. If it’s as bad as Bruce and Edwards like to make out then the former could’ve walked away any time he wanted. He’s too fucking greedy though.

A gong coming his way in the New Year’s Honours list?

Genuine question lads will there be some kind of presentation to Bruce before the match ?

P45 five minutes before kickoff would be good

Quite possibly.What would really hit home would be total silence when it’s handed over.I’m a bit unsure about booing him.It won’t show us in a good light.I’m all for hurling abuse at him at the final whistle mind.
