I hope we build on the improving points gathering.  I voted to give Bruce a little bit more time and he has scrambled effectively.  I still think he was the wrong choice of manager but, like others, after McLeish, Lambert, Sherwood, Garde, Black, K Mac and RDM I was suffering from moaning about managers fatigue and decided to let Bruce do whatever he was going to do.  I now would like to see Bruce improve as the team improves.  Perhaps he is better than the thud and blunder escapee from the Championship reputation that goes before him. Perhaps there is a good Premiership manager in Steve Bruce.  To find out would be nice.




From what we have seen hes an analogue manager in a digital world.

Analogue is considered by many to be better sounding and superior than digital in a musical (and music production) environment. Sweeter, richer sound and all that.

I think that is a myth perpetuated by companies who want people to spend 25 on a vinyl LP and 2000 on a valve amplifier
depends if you like compression and a lack of 'dirt'. I still prefer analogue but digital gets closer every day and some things sound better.  Bruce is more of a reel-to-reel than a Leek Audio.

Bruce is more a barrel organ. It serves the most basic of functions but it's bloody repetitively boring and stupidly out of date. Once in a while it will play a tune that has the nostalgia flooding back.
Bad!!!


Ha! The Villa Engine.

Hold on!? We've been promoted??
No but when fans are actually whinging about the margin of goals we are winning games. I have resigned myself to the fact that there are some that will never give him any credit. Its very irritating

It's just a couple of regulars from here, not the mass ranks.
Put your Tenna For Men back in place
That would be tricky

You and I both know what's coming next...just put it in place or pull 'em up

Apparently he has never forgiven us for not giving him a testimonial or naming a stand after him.

When do the Everton board have to attend the interview with Mrs Unsworth? Perhaps they can sweeten the deal by proposing the new stadium is nearer their house?
