I am 100% Town, but a friend persuaded me to go to Old Trafford, to watch Man U play Birmingham and when Steve Bruce came onto the pitch as the Birmingham manager, he received an incredible reception. A much loved guy.

Quoted from RichMariner
He did a great job when at Wigan and then later at Hull, where he worked under very strange circumstances. Getting them back into the Premier League was a far bigger achievement than many gave him credit for at the time.

He's got a good record of getting teams into the Premier League - and he's been at plenty of clubs in the north, so you can possibly see why it's a decent fit.

Edit - just read his Wiki page. He scored 113 goals in his career! In the 1990/1 season he got 19 in 50 appearances for Manu. That's a phenomenal record for a defender.


But playing for Man Utd at that time they played 134 Fergy time minutes every match so in reality he had more time to score them

That’s a bit unfair moosey. They only played 134 minutes if they weren’t winning 🙂
