Dear Steve Bruce,
I don’t want to be too critical of your well thought out excuse, but if I may comment, you mention you are half way through your rebuild so you need more time, but you lament on the loss of two key players (Kodjia, Jedinak) who you didn’t sign.
You also say our frontline is ‘toothless’ yet you told me Gabby will be the best striker in the league once he completed fat camp.
You also paid £15m for a one season no name wonder and most of your other signings sit on the bench.
You knew we would be faced with FFP restrictions this season but in January you virtually bought a new team comprising of like minded players to what we already had.
And now you are bemoaning there is no money to spend – as if nobody told you of the FFP problems.
My apologies Bruce, but I am a little confused.
If you have already implemented half of your master plan( which involves having 4 right-back options, sell 2 left-backs, replace an academy player for two 30+ centre backs and then buy more midfielders than you know what to do with.
Then I am finding it hard to work out what the other half entails? (Bruce I am quivering with excitement!!!)
