I don’t get why so many are unconvinced by Albert

Not sure how he’d do in the prem, but he got 10 assists last year in a side that struggled to attack and he has already been promoted so the “you’ll never get promoted with him” comments are odd

He’d be fine in the Prem I reckon, well down the list of players to be replaced.

I agree and in addition he has shown an attitude that others should note. He was not in the team at the start of the season but knuckled down and when his chance came he took it and has made himself one of the most important members of the side.

I find it strange that the main thrust of the criticism of Bruce seems to centre around a perception that his teams are boring and negative, yet we have produced many good, dominating attacking performances, and most of the best have come away from home, where you would expect to see most evidence of this ‘safety first’ football.

There can be little doubt that we have steadily improved since last season, and are on a continual upward curve. Should we fail to achieve promotion this season Bruce will be gone, yet the prospect of us going backwards again under a new manager would seem just as realistic as anything else. We have no divine right to promotion, and I think we are doing as well as one might have realistically  hoped, although the form of the top three means that there is little margin for error with the gap to be made up.

The bold bit fucks me off somewhat. I missed Norwich, don't travel away any more, so all I've seen is the more "boring", "negative", "safety first" football.

True, there's only been the one home league defeat, but we're three months into the season now and I've not seen us score three, nor win by more than the odd goal. Not for the first time, I get to read of a sparkling away performance that whets my appetite for next game.

Tuesday's opposition are shit, Steve. Send us out for ninety minutes on the front foot. Let a home crowd enjoy twenty-and-then-some efforts at goal. Please stop teasing me with what goes on away.

Negative would have left us with more draws?

QPR fans didn't seem to think we were too abhorrent:

'Villa were the best side we have played this season at LR and deserved to win. Better, tougher, fitter, faster
We won't play too many teams like Villa who looked like a prem side at times but they do have players worth about as much as our club these days.'

To move us up the table, Bruce had to address the away form. 13 points from the last 18 available on the road suggests he is going the right way about this.

Holloway said “we just need to capitalise on the chances we created. I’m sure we had at least as many as them, if not more”.  Eh? What planet is he on? Stats say we had 26 shots they had 14 🤔

I just wish he’d have some faith in youth

Apart from playing a 23 year old in goal and two 19 year olds up front
