We need to do what Newcastle have done and show a bit of ambition in appointing a manager. Or the alternative is to find someone young and inspired who can push us on. That is very difficult because they want all be Wagner or Howe say.
But lets face it, if someone like Benitez goes to a club like Newcastle in the mess they've been in, then money could get us a big name manager who could actually help us develop. Bruce is a pragmatic choice, but uninspired, and whilst he's done it at lower clubs, I don't think he can do much here. I struggle to see any sort of footballing ethos he can instil, besides negative football and grinding results. Granted you need that, but by his own admission, that's his forte. Yes you need to win ugly, but sometimes you need to impose yourself and show some class on the pitch. Winning pretty is also important. Sometimes guts isn't enough and you need the quality to come through.
We spend so much on average players? Why not spend big on a good manager?
