Bruce to be named new Wigan boss

Bruce to be named new Wigan boss

Steve Bruce is set to be named the new manager of Wigan Athletic early next week with his current employers Birmingham City agreeing a compensation deal with Latics chairman Dave Whelan

Bruce would also love to bring along his assistant Eric Black and first team coach Keith Bertchin but there is a stumbling block there as Brum want the pair to run their club until a new manager can be brought in

The deal, thought to be worth around the £3 million mark, hopefully signals the clubs intent to start spending in the transfer market

I am sure that Bruce would not contemplate joining the JJB set up if his hands were to be tied in the January window and the usual policy of one in one out must also be abandoned if we are to build a squad capable of staying in this division

The appointment of Steve Bruce will be good for Wigan Athletic; he is a well known and respected manager with Premiership experience, he is also a hard task masters and expects his teams to give 100%

The sooner he starts the better

Is Bruce your guy for the job?

As good as we could have hoped for considering the names of the other candidates being bandied about.

Not sure he's a good appointment. Couldn't get Brimingham out of the mire when they started to struggle in the Premiership.

He's as good if not better than the others. We aren't in a position to get the worlds top bosses.
