Said there's a reasonable chance he could be gone by October, but there is a strong argument to bring someone in NOW and give them time to bring in at least two or three of the players they need.  What a shit state of affairs.

There is nothing to suggest that he has any idea of how to turn this around.
I was criticised for calling for him gone last week, not sure too many will disagree now.
New Poll please.

If he has any decency he'll resign tonight.

He's a clueless dinosaur - we'll go nowhere with him in charge.

Wanted Bruce, backed him all last season. Thought he could turn us around. Wrong on all counts. He should go today.

New Poll please.

You can remove your old vote and do it again. I have.

Yes but needs fresh impetus to see where we are, there are unprecedented times.

Actually starting to hate Bruce now. He might be a decent guy and all that but he's fucking our prospects up just the same as the rest.

There will be opinions that it is too early in the season to judge Bruce, but the extended period he was in charge last season has to be taken into account as well.  There has been no noticeable improvement from last season at the moment and the problems that were apparent last season are still there.

Other than stability I can not see an argument to stick with him.

It's not our job to appoint the next one.
There are enough useless fuckers at the club who can fuck that up without our input.

However, I'd go for Dean Jones.
