The next Steve Bruce  ;D

I imagine Besiktas appointing him in the first place probably saved us a fortune in compensation. Sadly, no one else will be daft enough to appoint Bruce and save us paying up the rest of his contract

I believe Besiktas hiring VI meant we only ended up paying about 250k to get rid of him in the end.

Lost to a club just above the relegation zone, the Turks are not known for their patience!

A theme emerging for Val. His style might not be suited to sides who expect to win and might be better for clubs with low expectations.

Said that while he was here, he's good for a 'plucky underdog' type team

Besiktas fans are as lively, fanatical fangroup you'll find at the best of times.

A bit late to this but thought I'd give my opinion anyway.

Overall, his sacking isn't surprising. His season there was shorter than his time with us but had similarities. After a brilliant start, he started to come undone.

I believe his football isn't sustainable beyond 10 games. This is because it uses too much energy and running which isn't realistic over a full season. Having said this, I actually think it would be perfect as an international manager.
