God Help Us...Surely Not Him.
« on: November 09, 2018, 07:02:26 AM »
Paddy Power have taken substantial bets  late last night on Steve Bruce to become the next Fulham manager.
From nowhere in the betting,the firm have now installed him as 5/2 fav,pushing Moyes,Allardyce and Coleman out in the betting.
Are they making a false market,or are certain people in the know?....God help us if true.😱

Well if Bruce was appointed it would save me a fortune in Petrol because I would not be at the Cottage again all the time he was there! :031:

Paddy Power chap on talkshite saying they took 2 large bets that would take out three noughts sums of money.
I should think its a punter with money to burn taking the chance on Bruce..22/1 and 14/1the bets were laid at.........

I'd rather Bruce over Parker. But ideally I don't want Bruce in the 1st place. Get Ranieri in. Doubt Khan will go after someone whose currently at another club.

Wouldn't mind seeing this in the long term, once he's learned how to coach have an effect on people

Bruce would be good, surely?     He did OK at Wigan, Sunderland and Hull ....   I think he is good at shaping and managing difficult squads in the PL.

We need a manager who is going to bang some heads together and inject some on-field discipline. 

Parker would be a Rene M. style mistake.

 Totally agree about Parker but definitely do not want Steve Bruce he is not the answer

If I had to choose a manager based on last couple of year's results and performances, after much deliberation, I'd choose Slavisa Jokanovic

We could always do a Burnley and keep Joka this season and next whether we stay up or go down!? Just saying.

I want the club to do well. I really don't know enough about managers and coaches to comment. I do know that I will always support the club. But agree with the huge ticket prices fans have the right to save a bit of money if they so choose. But if our present coach cannot stop the rot. If, as many do, blame everything on the players. Then it really doesn't matter who is in charge.

But wouldn't it be good to see a Fulham side stride out against Liverpool. Put all the effort in and look like a proper team who knows what they are doing. Who cares if we fail. Let's see a bit of solid team work. Clever tactics using our strengths. Despite the rumours we do have them. Then we really wont care about new managers as Joka will stay. Otherwise any more utter confusion will get us all repeating the same things next week.
