With the managerial hot-seat, at Elland Road, vacant once again, it is essential that Leeds United make the correct appointment this time around.

Our club needs somebody at the helm who knows how to get out of the Championship and into the Premier League, a place every Leeds supporter feels they belong on.

One such manager is Steve Bruce.

Although Bruce is currently in charge of Aston Villa, there is speculation, as reported by the news source, Hull Daily Mail that his position at Villa Park could be in doubt.

After losing the Championship Play-Off Final, to Fulham, Aston Villa’s parachute payment, after losing their Premier League status, will be cut.

The club is in a position whereby cost-cutting becomes essential and our source is reporting that the Villa owner, Tony Xia, is contemplating Bruce’s position at the club.

Bruce has a wealth of managerial experience having taken charge of the likes of – Wigan, Crystal Palace, Birmingham City, Sunderland and Hull.

He has the unique ability to get clubs out of the Championship and into the Premier League, something we’d be more than appreciative of if he could do it at Elland Road.

But what’s the view amongst the Vital Leeds readership?

Do you see Steve Bruce as a candidate for the vacant role?

  • yes he could probably do a good job, we need someone strong, please NOT mcarthy I rather Heckingbottom back than him

  • Steve Bruce is ideal. Look I hate Scum every but as much as the next Leeds fan but for goodness sake that was another age – we cannot move forward by looking back. He is a very rounded grounded character and I have not seen as much honesty, integrity and sense from a manager since those years ago when every Leeds fan craved Martin O’Neill. He understands our game at varying levels but lets face it as good as he is anyone coming in needs rid of that buffoon Orta and some honest earnest backing from our Chairman rather than just publicity seeking soundbites that build his own ego! No one can do the job Leeds fans want until the owner gets real money and a professionally considered plan of integrity combined with sense such as that employed by our last successful owner/chairman Leslie Silver os.

  • Might be the answer. Haven given the Scum Cantona who then became the catalyst for a new era and kept ole purple nose in a job, ironic if Bruce became our catalyst for a PL return (bit like wee Gordon I guess).

  • Bruce could sort out Leeds defence which has been a nightmare for years but I’d go for Sam Allardice or Simon Grayson myself

  • Bruce has a wealth of experience because he cannot hold down a job and failed to take Villa up despite being given a decent amount od cash to splash…No Thanks!

  • Steve Bruce is the man we need or Sam Allardyce they will lead Leeds out of the championship not the Argentine

  • I would love the next mgr to be either Gordon Strachan. Or David Oleary( who has unfinished business with us) both know and love the club and have been successful on the pitch as a player and then as a manager….but I can’t see Rads going for someone the fans would love…….. As long as it’s someone who has been successful as a manager and someone that the players can look upto then I don’t mind as long as it’s not the following…Pardew, Moyes, Laudrop, McCarthy……I would be OK with Bruce , not that keen on Allardyce due to the way his teams play but he gets results so would live with it for a season…. The Argentinian looks an exciting prospect but a little worried where he hasn’t played or worked in an English league before and that he didn’t hack it in the French league recently with Lille…

  • Personally I’d prefer to give David Oleary the chance. to get lufc playing like a team and not individuals no fancy 3-4-2-1 stick with a good 4-4-2 have two strikers in the box two wingers throwing that ball into the box score goals and get out of the championship and back to were we belong premier league
