Of course Mr Jordan will NOT insist on Mr Bruce working his notice period.
The issue of notice is being used as a negotiating tool with regard to obtaining compensation from Birmingham.

It would be pure farce for Mr Bruce to be still on the books but NOT the manager for a few months whilst caretaker managers are in situ.

From our perspective, the sooner that Mr Bruce leaves and a new manager is appointed the better.

How exactly could losing six games represent a no-lose situation?

What he said was: He revels in the discomfort of Palace fans losing their manager, but doesn't understand why Bruce swapped Palace for Birmingham.

I like his writing: it's clever and amusing.

Also a very good piece by Jimmy Greaves of all people in the Current saying that he thought that Bruce was basically mad to go to Birmingham and the whole scenario will open up a can of worms in light of the possible future Player strikes.

Bruce is quite clearly a p-rick. Can't wait till he stuffs up at Birmingham. They're not a bigger club and I can't see them in the Premiership in the next three years. If not this year, we'll be up next year as long as we have a stable manager not a unloyal ****** like Bruce!!

Thank You very much kind Sir.

If I do contact the Programme and I am fortunate enough to speak to Mr Jordan, I will of course appear under my real name, but I am quite certain that you will recognise TROLLEY !

I was gobsmaked when Gold said that, and shows the arrogance of BCFC in all this. They really just assumed they could come in, take our manager and we'd bend over, drop our trousers and take a right royal screwing and be grateful for it.

Jordan's reply of 'I don't care what they think' was class, though.

They've obviously told every reporter in the country they want Bruce and then accuse Jordan of running to the press.

What happens if Bruce decides to retract his resignation ? He obviously cannot come back now but would he not put SJ in a position. If he does not accept the retraction then we will still be in the same mess, if not even more confusing ie he resigns but the Chairman will not accept it so he retracts the resignation and the Chairman wont accept that either. Try working that one out, it will be complete bedlam. Confused ? You will be !
