Aston Villa - Steve Bruce Will Never Win Some Fans Over
A decent post in the forum about Steve Bruce.
It is interesting how this Steve Bruce debate has developed over the past few months.
Initially he was being slated after a few poor results at the start of the season, tactically inept, negative, dinosaur tactics etc....with many suggesting he should have been sacked.
Now, just two months later, we're fourth and the debate is how the tactically inept, negative dinosaur may be able to get us promoted but won't be able to keep us in the Premier League. I expect if the useless git gets us promoted and keeps us in the Premier League with a mid table finish the debate will move on to how unsuitable he is to take us into the top six.
For some I don't think he'll ever win them over.
Last night was awful but we won....the mentality at the club is changing. At this point in time I couldn't care less about who could lead us to glory in the Premiership. Let's get there first....it won't always be pretty, like last night, sometimes it might be disappointing like Sheffield Wednesday, sometimes it'll be bloody good like QPR, Norwich, Barnsley.
I can remember it being much the same in 1974/75 under Sir Ron. It wasn't all a bed of roses but in the same way, Bruce is starting to lay the foundations so severely lacking over the past few years. All things considered, the 'useless one' ain't doing such a bad job.....
