Very interesting and many thanks for sharing it. Not many revelations really but good to read nonetheless.

So just proves brunt and many others played when then wanted to play and didn't when they didn't fancy it... As we all knew they had to much say in the dressing room... Well all have gone apart from the wand and thank god its coming to an end and defiently don't miss him now... Good riddance "legend"

I don’t think it says that at all, it’s basically saying they played how they were told to but the instructions were that poor no one knew what they were doing so they spoke up when asked by the chairman.

How many managers bemoan "when they cross the white line you have no control"
Well, that cuts both ways, why couldn't CB and pals do what they "knew" was right when they were on the pitch ????

Possibly the fear of being dropped. Fear of the manager. Fear of doing your own thing and being at fault for losing. The manager/coach is there for reason. To be obeyed. It’s the same in every industry.

yep, he even says in the interview that under Pulis you either did it his way or you were dropped.

Brunt has been a great servant to the club but his time has come and when everyone is fit and up to speed I don't even see a place for him on the bench.

I get that with one player being a maverick, BUT, when the team are struggling surely the senior players should change things in an effort to turn it around and not just blindly continue doing what is not working?

Any player or manager worth their salt (strange expression) should accept that surely ?

The article is very much an end of career piece in that it is probably franker than it might otherwise be, Brunt knows he has this season and maybe no more there is a sense that the player wants to set the record straight.

Much of what is in the article is generally known and obviously Brunt is not going to paint himself the villain in his own story. There is quite a bit to pick at if I wanted but I am done with it. For the first time maybe since Clarke there is a proper sense of renewal at the club, the squad is younger the coach has a sense of direction and the more importantly the squad aligns with that direction and Brunt as is natural not central to it.

Yesterday has gone all we can hope that we have learned something along the way and don't repeat the mistakes of the past.

That assumes the managers to be logical, and not ego-driven. If a player isn't doing what they want, they will drop him - even if what he's doing is for the better.

without re-reading i think Brunt mentioned that Pardew was known for getting a bounce so were expecting it to suddenly click and work out, which it didn’t in the end.

Report to who? I thought Pardrew got the job as he was chums with someone on the board.

He worked with Hammond at Reading I believe.

I was hoping brunt would set the record straight on that trip to Barcelona as the small snippets I read suggest that Pardew was involved in some of the dramas that went on..

Sorry, I'm confused by your question, my point wasn't about reporting stuff, it was about adapting tactics on the pitch

Good example of professionalism in the article linked below..........

https://www.wba.co.uk/news/2019/september2/brunt-on-importance-of-maintaining-match-sharpness/

........ good to see, especially when compared to the attitudes of some of our former players.
