Bruce Staying Put

Last updated : 25 March 2006 By Brian Cartlidge

Blues have been in the bottom three of the Premier League table since October and some fans vented their anger towards Bruce following the 7-0 home defeat to Liverpool, but he insists that the majority of supporters want him to remain as manager.

"I am not going to walk away. I am not going to quit. It would be the easy thing to do at the minute," he has said.

"The vast majority of Birmingham fans would be devastated if I held up my hands and waved the white flag.

"The vast majority would want me to carry on and get the utmost out of the rest of the season.

"I have not - although some quarters might say differently - overnight become a bad manager.

"Four years over the last four-and-a-half years has been okay. Now what has changed?

"Have I changed as a manager? I would like to think not. Circumstances have been against us accumulating in the bad result the other night. Let us do something about it."
