Curtis Davies wants Steve Bruce to stay as manager of Hull City

Curtis Davies has stated that he wants Steve Bruce to remain as the manager of the club.

Despite having brought the club the back to the Premier League one year after having been relegated, there is news that Bruce might be leaving the club.

Davies said that the club needed Steve Bruce to stay as manager of the club. For him, it is thank to him that the players are still there and that they have succeeded in gaining promotion to the Premier League. He said that if a club wants to be successful there need to be some stability around the team. He stated that it is a team that has been assembled by Steve Bruce that has won the promotion, and he said that the team needs him if they want to be successful.

Davies added that if the team intends to stay in the Premier League there need to be some stability and that the manager should remain at the club. He said that he is happy for the team to have won the promotion to the Premier League and that they deserved it.

Curtis Davies said that he would have had problems to enjoy himself on his holidays if ever the team did not make it to the Premier League. He stated that it was a painful experience to be relegated and that he does not want to experience such feelings again.

He stated that the team will need to prepare well for next season as it is going to be tough in the Premier League. He admitted that it was quite tough to play in the Championship but that they will need to be even better if they want to survive in the Premier League.

Hull City Problems are well Known

Hull City’s inability to finish off teams has been their biggest problem, according to defender Curtis Davies.

The club were looking certainties for promotion through the automatic places a few months ago. However, their form has nosedived spectacularly and manager Steve Bruce recently admitted that the automatic promotion spots were out of reach. The club will now look to gain momentum before the play-offs begin. Form rather than quality is seen as the biggest factor in winning the play-offs. Despite having an experienced defender like Davies, the club has struggled to keep off opponents.

Davies’ comments came in wake of a 2-2 draw with Leeds United. Hull City appeared to be in a comfortable position and heading for three points, but they were pegged back by a late equaliser by Dallas. The result meant that Hull City are without a clean sheet in the last five games. Furthermore, they have allowed the opposition to score twice or more in three out of those games. Defensive performances are leading down the team, but Davies reckons that the team need not conceded late goals if they finish off the opponents much earlier. Davies admitted that their club are regretting their huge downfall in the last six weeks.

The club can now only hope that they get lucky in the play-offs.”There’s massive regrets. We know we were there or thereabouts six weeks ago. You look at Boro, where we lost 1-0 in the 93rd minute (on March 18) and now they’ve gone 10 points clear of us.It’s frustrating but we’ve only got ourselves to blame. Everyone else has kept their momentum going and kept up their form. When they’ve had bad patches, they’ve come back from it.Now we have to deal with the situation we’re in and make sure we’re ready for these play-offs,” said Davies.

Curtis Davies is out of the reach of Bournemouth

For the past few months, Bournemouth has shown interest in signing Curtis Davies of Hull City but unfortunately for the Premier League club, they aren’t going to be able to sign the 30 year old defender as he is fully involved with Hull City and he is even ready to sign a contract extension with his current team.

Curtis Davies is one of the standout players not only of Hull City but also of the entire English Championship League as the veteran defender is constantly helping out his team in winning games and the work that he makes in every single match has not gone unnoticed.

The English defender has a contract with Hull City which expires in the summer only in a few months’ time but the player himself has stated that he will accept a contract extension with the club if he gets assurance of consistently making it into the first team and this is what Curtis Davies has been doing non-stop.

Davies is undisputedly one of the more important players in the team of the manager Steve Bruce and there is no reason at all for him to be dropped as he has been playing amazing and has played a huge role in the recent success of Hull City as they are currently located at the top spots of the English League Championship.

“My contract is up in the summer and, right now, I am playing for my future. We are in talks over a new deal but, if the effort is not here to keep me, then I shall have to move on.

I’ll be 31 at the end of the season, and I need to be playing games. I would be happy to sign on again here because I’ve been at Hull for three years and really enjoyed it.’’ Hull City’s Curtis Davies said as he voiced his desire to remain with his current team and extend his stay beyond what his contract has stipulated.

The rumours of Abel Hernandez being chased by the Gunners

The rumours of Abel Hernandez being chased by the Gunners have not amused Steve Bruce one bit and he has labelled all those news stories as total rubbish.

Hull City, with the results so far, seems to be well on its way to be promoted to Premiership.

They are topping the English second tier and the contribution of Hernandez in that has been huge. So, according to Bruce, there is just no point selling him or anyone at this time.

Bruce also revealed that he had interacted with Arsenal coaching staff three-four days back to enquiry of a loan move and they dropped no hints in that conversation that they were looking to have Hernandez on board this winter.

Most of the fans and also, the pundits are opined that although the Gunners have got most of the areas covered and they are well and truly in the fight for the title in the Premiership, what they are short of, in comparison to the other teams, is a forward who is skilful as well as aggressive and can take the game to the opposition on his own.

Hernandez is someone who fits the bill in aggression, but, he had featured in Premiership in the 2014-15 Season, which was his first one in England, and he had struggled to cope with the level of Football.

However, his recent showings in Championship suggest that he is getting used to English Football now.

He has netted at a fantastic rate for Hull lately. And, thus, it’s easily understandable why Bruce is adamant not to let go of him right now.

The Hull boss was quoted as saying, “There are always rumours in media nowadays and some of them are utter rubbish to be frank.”

Curtis Davies has spent most of his career playing

Curtis Davies has spent most of his career playing in the midlands for clubs like Aston Villa and West Brom.

However, he is now going through his least successful spell in his career with Hull City and there are rumours that he could soon end his stay with the Championship club once and for all. After the relegation into the second division of English football, Hull are finding it increasingly difficult to keep hold of their star players. Davies may be a star name on paper but he has not been one of the untouchables in Steve Bruce’s team sheet.

There are intense rumours that Premier League minnows Bournemouth would come in with an offer in the upcoming January transfer window for the defender, who is valued at around £ 3 million. Bournemouth are eyeing up the deal since they see this as a great opportunity to get an experienced player on a cheap. Davies is out of contract in the summer and Hull would rather cash innow rather than allow him to leave on a free transfer. Bournemouth find themselves in the relegation zone after 13 matches in the league and one of the reasons has been the poor defensive record.

The club has conceded 27 goals already and Eddie Howe has reportedly identified Davis as the stopgap. Further, signing the 30-year-old will also protect the club from a financial meltdown should they return to the Championship after just one season in the top division. Davies did not feature for Hull in the last three months of last campaign. He was made as a scapegoat for the club’s relegation into the Championship. Even though he has been in great form this season, he has been recently replaced by former Tottenham defender Michael Dawson. Davies came to Hull for £ 2.25 million.

Steve Bruce has admitted that the club need to make at least four or five signings

Steve Bruce has admitted that the club need to make at least four or five signings in order to think about a return to the Premier League by either winning or finishing second in the Championship.

Despite being one of the newly relegated teams, Hull are already behind Derby in the rank of favourites for promotion according to popular bookmakers. These odds can be improved only by signing some top quality players while also retaining existing big names like Curtis Davies. It has been speculated that the former Aston Villa defender could be poached by Premier League clubs.

Davies has so far remained silent on the issue and has pledged his future with Hull, but the persisting interest from top division clubs could change the outcome. Bruce is aware that most of the signings made by him last summer have not worked out. Hence, he has little time in order to get things right at the KC stadium. The former Sunderland boss often starts extremely well with results petering out towards the end of his career at a club. It remains to be seen if Hull will remain patient with Bruce even if the club has a poor start to the season. The opening match of the season is against Huddersfield Town.

“I would have thought we need at least four or five (new signings) at the moment. We’ll not have Robert Snodgrass and Mo Diame for the first month so with those two out we’ve got 19 players, and two of those are goalkeepers.We are a little bit thin on the ground, but I’m quietly confident we’ll bring in some fresh faces and have a squad capable of challenging for promotion.The football is just starting now. We’re all back to work after one of the quietest summers I can remember and you can see things picking up,” said Bruce.

Hull City’s Curtis Davies believes his team can avoid being relegated

The remaining matches of the season for Hull City will see them facing off against Arsenal, Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

Hull City essentially is going to have to play with some of the top clubs of the English League before the season reaches it’s end and the results of these matches is going to determine if Hull City is able to stay in the Premier League for another year or suffer relegation.

These upcoming matches of Hull City are not going to be easy for the team of Steve Bruce and his players but the captain of the team still believes that they are capable of surviving and making it through these tough opponents.

Curtis Davies is the captain of Hull City and the 30 year old defender is hoping that the quality of his teammates will be enough for them to dodge the spots that no club wants to be in.
Curtis Davies told the media: “A lot of our players have played in the Premier League but I’m not sure how many have actually had a relegation battle. Myself and Liam Rosenior have been through it with other teams but I’m not sure how many others have.’’

“It’s good we have the experience but we’re hoping the quality shows and we have enough to get over the line. We know it’s not going to be easy but we believe we have enough to do it.”

Davies started off the season by being a consistent and regular starter but the defender has lost his impact at Hull City as he was an unused substitute in all of the matches of his team of the month of March but the experienced defender is hoping that he can end the season on a high note and help Hull City escape the bottom zone.

Hull City didnt progressed even after Reaching FA Cup Final

After reaching the FA Cup final last season, Hull City were expected to progress to much better things this season.

It has not been the case as Steve Bruce has been unable to match the expectations while also struggling with off the field issues.

In order to help the former Sunderland manager, the club recently brought in former Manchester United assistant manager Mike Phelan, who is currently out of work after having left United following the exit of Sir Alex Ferguson. There has been an improvement in performance from Hull over the last few matches. Defender Curtis Davies says that the presence of Phelan is starting to have an impact on the team.

Hull have managed just four wins this season. Despite signing goalscorers like Jelavic in the summer from Everton, they have been able to get only 23 goals in 25 league matches.

Defensively, they have been poor and have conceded more than 30 goals in these matches. Ahead of the away match against Manchester City, Davies says that the recent improvement in performances has not translated into results but he is hoping to get something out of the match against the reigning champions. City have been suffering from poor form at home this season.

“Coming in straight away, his talk was good. He touched on the fact that he can’t affect what’s happened before.Everything that’s gone on in the past, where we are in the league, he can’t affect.He wants to help us moving forward. He wants to help the manager, with Berch (Keith Bertschin), with Clem (Stephen Clemence) and the players, to start getting results.He gave us that idea that if we jump on board with him, we can start getting better and moving up the league,” said Davies. Phelan knows Steve Bruce extremely well from their Manchester United days.

Curtis Davies Unhappy with his Performance

Curtis Davies believes that his performances for Hull City this campaign are below his usual standards, and he believes that he can improve a lot.

The former Aston Villa defender is considered as one of the experienced members of this Hull City team, which saw a massive influx of new players in the summer. Despite spending big, manager Steve Bruce has been unable to get good results. They have been involved in several draws and this certainly does not help them in their efforts to avoid relegation. Pressure is mounting on Bruce after Hull slipped into the relegation zone following a 0-0 draw with West Brom.

Davies has not featured in the Hull team since the 3-0 defeat against Manchester United. He is hoping to return to the starting line-up with much better form after having this forced break at a crucial time in the season. As the captain of the team, the 29-year-old is aware that he must set an example when it comes to form. Even though they have taken two points from the last two matches, it is victories that will help the club jump significantly above the relegation zone. Their last victory in the league came in the first week of October against Crystal Palace.

“I’ve been average, not anywhere near my usual standards if I’m honest.I set high standards for myself last season and that’s frustrating. I need to put my finger on it and get back to where I was. The sooner I do that, the better. I’m not saying I’m going to turn the team around because there’s 11 players on the pitch but when you’ve got a good feeling in yourself, that can help everyone around you through individual confidence.I could make excuses for how I’ve played but I don’t know,” said Davies.

Pardew Future At Risk

With the Premier League having been played 4 matches, some clubs and managers are flying high with superb performances being displayed so far and this is the case of Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea as they still are undefeated and appear to be unstoppable with Diego Costa firing from all cylinders.
There are some managers and clubs however, that are struggling to secure even one single and a perfect example of this would be Alan Pardew with Newcastle United.
Newcastle United finished the previous season of the Premier League in a positive note as they secured the 10th spot but things have taken a turn for the worse as Pardew has not collected a single victory from the 4 opening matches of the season.
The pressure is starting to build on Alan Pardew as rumors are already stating that he might be sacked if positive results aren’t shown within the next few weeks.
Hull City’s Steve Bruce is a manager that has recently been linked with the managerial position at Newcastle United if Alan Pardew is indeed sacked but Bruce has stepped up to the media and shut down those claims involving him with a move to the St. James Park.
“I find it very disrespectful that I am linked with somebody else’s job when he is still in the job. I have only been at Hull a couple of years and they have been really good. They gave me the chance to get up and running again and for that I will always be grateful.”

Steve Bruce does not look like he wants to move away from Hull City anytime soon as he denied all those rumors involving him with Newcastle United but the future of Alan Pardew is at risk if the English manager is unable to start picking up victories in the Premier League.
