    Dull City

    Ahh, Hull City.

    The team that deservedly put an end to our premiership dreams. (although we beat them 8-3 on aggregate over the season, and were the only team to beat them at home - we did it twice - they showed nous and bottle in the play offs and we had absolutely none).

    Now look at them.


    Only 14 fit players, a Chairman who still doesn't know his Tigers from his Frosties, and a Judas (now ex) manager who has, for the third or fourth time in his career, left a job half done when the going gets tough for the promise of more money elsewhere.


    I'm beginning to hope that our 11 point season might be under threat !

    I think it's more to do with being pissed-off with the chairman to be fair.

    I know a lot of folk on the forum don't like him.
    But for me Bruce is one of the most genuine blokes in English football.
    Top bloke who nearly always does a steady if not spectacular job.

    I think he took the gamble that being available for Sunderland was going to be enough, and it spectacularly backfired.


    He does come across as decent, and he's at least a half decent manager (but to be interviewed for the England job shows just how far we have fallen), however he has a history of not seeing things through - that's why I don't like him.

    Why are so many of you linking Steve Bruce with Sunderland when it all turned so sour last time. Even without them appoinnting David Moyes, Bruce wouldn't be in the top ten candidates for the job.

    I quite like him personally and if I was a supporter of a championship club without a manager I'd take him in a heartbeat.

    I wonder if he will end up at Wolves.
