Regular visitors to Vital Leeds will recall that, in an article, I suggested that an ideal candidate, for the vacant managerial role, to lead us out of the Championship was Steve Bruce.
Our article, Click Here, carried the inference that Leeds United could benefit from Bruce’s managerial experience that has seen him gain promotion from the Championship to the Premier League on a couple of occasions.
Well, it now appears that the club may have come around to our way of thinking.
According to the respected news source, the Telegraph, Leeds United have taken advantage of the perilous financial situation Aston Villa find themselves in, by enquiring as to whether Steve Bruce, who has yet to have his position at Villa Park clarified, would be interested in making the switch to Elland Road.
However, delving into the world of social media, we find that the speculation has received a mixed response.
I’d have Bruce in an heartbeat

Are we forgetting he was Manchester United and he hated us and he hasn’t been that much of a success.
