Bruce Remains Non-Committal (Sort Of!)

Bruce Remains Non-Committal (Sort Of!)

Thanks to the requirements of satellite television, the fixtures this coming weekend see the games involving the two title contenders - United and City, split over a couple of days.

In one sense it adds to the pressure with one or other manager knowing exactly what his team has to do as opposed to the degree of uncertainty that exists when both sides kick-off a the same time.

The closeness of the title race is a captivating spectacle but a former player of ours, Steve Bruce, has given the media a few comments without actually dictating who he believes with turn up trumps, remarking,

"United have had a wonderful run and over January and February they have stayed the course."

"They had a tough run against Arsenal. Chelsea and Tottenham and came through that. Now it will be interesting to see City`s reaction."

"It is the first time City have been behind in five months. In the past, once United have got in front, they have stayed there."


Does the inference that United have done it all before, seen it all before and worn the t-shirt, indicate that Bruce is still flying the red flag?

Continuing, as an ex-United defender, Bruce praises Jonny Evans as a key component of our defence as we home in on a 20th top flight title, further remarking,

"Of course they`ve missed Vidic but Jonny Evans has now played over 20 league games and has quietly done extremely well."

"He`s only 23; he`s played big games and handles himself brilliantly. Chris Smalling and Phil Jones have got all the headlines but Jonny has done particularly well."

"It`s important Rio Ferdinand has returned as he gives stability. Defenders get better with age."


They do appear to do just that don`t they Steve, we`re surprised you`re not considering a comeback!

Personally don't think he'll be back in management until next year Red Boy and I can only see it being at Premier League level. Wolves should've got him when they had the chance as their current manager, which was a massive risk appointing him anyway, is going to take them down. Bruce is right about Evans and that's coming from one of his biggest critics. We'll always remember his silly, liability moments where he will cost us the odd point (which I don't believe he will ever get over as that's just the character he is) but on the whole Evans has done really quite well and been a rock at the back, another underrated United player.
