Bruce out!! We were far the better team in the 1st
Half. Came out the second 1/2 looking like we were told to
hold the lead. Same as last season we didn't do it.
Best form of defence is attack Bruce is clueless. UTV

We need a new manager.

He seems to have lost it totally. Bacuna on the left? Wasn't he trying to sell him last week? His Jan signings all look flops bar Taylor. Hourihane can't get a game ahead of Bacuna. Hogan looks completely lost. Lansbury is a charlatan of a footballer.

 I've watched Whelan for years for Ireland and he is a very solid pro. But today showed his limitations, he simply will not make himself available for the ball when the team are under pressure and he can't get around the pitch. Jedinak won't do it either so unless Hourihane suddenly finds form we are going to really struggle in midfield. No pace or stamina either in all our options.

You'd have to say his January signings look decidedly ropey.  Hourihane and Thor can't get a game.  Hogan can't score and Lansbury needs to be replaced by Jessica Fletcher.  Only Johnstone looks good and even he has the ability to scare me at times.

I think this is what will hang him in the end, the January buys are poor to average.
As someone said, the fact that Bacuna still gets a game is pretty damning.
