Don't get me wrong, he is doing a terrible job at the moment, I just can't understand why/how both his performance and the players has nosedived so quickly.

the biggest problem is RDM and Bruce have spent all the money and will leave the next manager with an ageing very average squad with limited resources to go again (pun intended)
we are really in a fix

The squad is good enough to challenge

The squad is good enough to win this league. The manager is not. Fuck him off now.

We might as well start drawing up a list of replacements, as it could only be a matter of time now.

Have a horrible feeling that John Terry will be player manager in a few games time.

No doubt his post match guff will be more of the same. Pointing out all the flaws we see, and then promptly doing fuck all at BH to fix them, same as it's been since October. 10 months of this shite under him and we look worse than the day he walked into the club.

With Dennis Wise and Jody Morris as his coaching staff. You heard it here first

This summer has been a complete and utter waste. We desperately lacked energy and creativity last year. He spends the first 6 weeks of the summer chasing a semi-retired centre half, to fix a problem that was never there. There doesn't seem to be any type of planning, highlighted by the fact he was contemplating what formation to play a week before the season started. Never occured to him towork out the system and then buy signings accordingly?! It's not all lost though, our squad looks decent, but needs additions. Pace at the back, energy in midfield and a bit of guile. The same as we needed in May, basically.

It's increasing looking like he's not the man to sort this out, so let's get someone in who can while they'll still have a chance.

THRe thing is with getting rid of him is you have to get somebody else and no matter who we get, we're shit.

It seems to be our circle of (recent) life.

Apparently if we're still playing like that in ten games, he knows what will happen.

Christ, if we're still playing like that in ten minutes, I'd can the bloke.

On the BBC he says he can't remember a worse thrashing that he's had in the Championship.  Well allow me to jog your memory Steve, January this year, away at Brentford.  A similarly utterly inept performance and sound thrashing.  Twat.
