I don't understand why we don't play McCormack ,we payed en
ough for him, and even though we've yet to sell or loan him out we could surely make use of his skills.9

Yep, where are the goals going to come from? Newcastle had someone scoring 16 goals from midfield and two strikers getting double figures as well as others contributing significantly. Apart from Kodjia i can't see our squad doing that.

Well so far Bruces answer is "Gabby". I do hope he gets through his Gabby phase quick though, most of our managers do. Hogan and McCormack are both fine options imho. Play them.

yes very strange. I mean even when he was "good", the most Gabby managed was 13 goals in the premier. 7 years ago! Even if he rates him for other stuff who's gonna score?

Agree. It makes no sense. It would be different of he was setting us up to play with an attacking midfield who will regularly break through and score themselves but that doesnt seem to be the case.

Gabby 12, Hogan 15, Kod 15, Hotlips 10, Lansbury 10, Samba/Chester/Terry 10, Adomah/Green/Elmo 12. There you go, we're Champions!!! Can't believe anyone doubts we can score with that firepower!

How did he do at Forest? His attitude seemed to be wrong last season, but I had hopes when he went with other players on the pre pre season break. People were saying he looked awful in the first pre season game. as much as I am not sure about Bruce I do not think he would discard a proven goalscorer

I think he's shown he's very willing to get rid of players that he doesn't know how to use and RM is quite clearly in that category.

He has to be allowed a go at this. There are now just a small handful of players left from the relegation. The majority that are left are the players he wanted. Give him a chance.

You've only got a few weeks now and you'll be back.

Hopefully we will be top two by then.
