Bruce On His Way?

Bruce On His Way?

Some of you got excited then didn't you! I'm on about Alex though, not Steve.

According to one website, Hibernian are apparently sniffing round the bosses son as they look to add numbers in defence.

The 21 year old is predominantly a centre half, but can also perform at right back. Having just made 12 appearances for the Blues, he's faired slightly better whilst onloan to the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Oldham and Tranmere by making a combined 35 appearances following his capture from Blackburn.

There aren't any quotes, figures or anything substantial about this rumour, it also doesn't state whether Hibs would be interested in a loan spell or an outright purchase so make of it what you will.

Looks remarkably similar to an article I wrote yesterday ;-)

Still a bit frustrating to have facts and figured taken when I've bothered to do the research myself.

I've got nothing to apologise for and I'm not too keen on the insinuation, nothing was stolen and no exclusive facts taken. http://www.blues.premiumtv.co.uk/page/ProfilesDetail/0,,10412~30895,00.html I'm doing player profiles at the moment, so I read both reports - confirmed the figures and went with them. I assume you got the figures from the same source as you can't seriously be suggesting you don't do similar, the world of the media would be awfully quiet otherwise wouldn't it. Please feel free to email me on blackeye@birmingham.vitalfootball.co.uk if you want to continue this.

My apologies if you got the figures from elsewhere :-) But "not copy and pasted" seems like you took the majority of the write-up and just changed it. If not, I apologise.

No problems, maybe we were both a bit quick to jump here. I thought initially you were just joking hence the flippant copy and paste comment, very little to talk about with the article to be honest so I presume all the coverage would be very similar in nature. Short of saying he's Steve's son, played 12 times and been onloan theres very little in terms of the direction you can take it especially as there's no cast iron quotes or anything like that from anyone connected with Hibs. To get back to the story, if Steve hasn't any plans to make him a regular and Hibs do want him, I don't see much of a problem with him going out on a loan, possibly for the season as long as we have the option to recall him if needed. He's going to grow as a player and probably have a more fruitful time if given first team experience if it doesn't come from his old mans selection than sitting on the subs bench or turning out for the reserves or what have you.
