With the future of manager Steve Bruce a hot topic of conversation this week following the takeover by Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens, the fact we were then rather bizarrely linked with former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry sent plenty into a tizzy.

With report after report claiming that a deal was done and that Bruce would receive his marching orders in Wednesday’s meeting with our new owners, it’s more than fair to say the fanbase was split between those who felt Bruce should be stuck by, those who felt Henry was the new Garlic Bread and those who felt Bruce should go but certainly shouldn’t be replaced by Henry.

The news that he retains the ‘full support’ of the owners has done little to sway the debate about his future, we can just park it for a little while and continue to focus on the year ahead and ignore those on all sides shouting the loudest (often me on the forum to be fair!).

Vital Villa conducted a thoroughly well researched and scientifically accurate poll that closed ahead of the clubs’ announcement last night – well JF put a poll up on Twitter, it’s almost the same thing.

46% of fans who took time to take part wanted Bruce to stay. Only 33% opted for the sack and 21% enjoyed the feel of the fence between their legs as they sat on it.

The Birmingham Mail’s Mat Kendrick was also in the mood for a poll, and fans went for Bruce again at 57%, with Henry being only 43%.

Reasonably close to demonstrate the split but not as close as Brexit and far less horrific for the economy but that’s a different debate.
