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

hopefully but I'm not as convinced as others in some of the players we have bought

I mean Hogan, Hourahane, Mcormack, Whelan, Lansbury, that Iceland fella  I haven't seen any of them have a decent game yet,
 early days for some I know but come on at the moment they all look like a basket of shitness

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

Must surely have been at the back of his mind when he signed. Xia is exactly the sort of person who would give him that job.

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.

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.

What made that worse was that we'd signed a load of new players and everyone thought we were going to tear Brentford a new one. But much as Cardiff were today, Brentford didn't even need to be that good. They were just faster.

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.

Nosedived from where? Its been crap since SB arrived

4 months before he joined us he got a team promoted with less resources than at his disposal now... then look at the players we have signed McCormack, Horihane, hogan to name three who have come in off the back of being brilliant for their previous clubs but being crap for us.

Can someone explain what we will know after 10 games that we don't know now?

How many points we'll miss the playoffs by.

I honestly believe we have gone past the point of no return with Bruce

I also think he knows it

Any confidence this squad has will be completely fucked off by then.

He looks and sounds a defeated bloke in the interview on the Facebook page and when he says 3 times he's been here 6 months I think he's a goner.

Honestly he hasn't helped himself. He's had all that cash and bought who he wanted, and we're useless without a knackered old Aussie and an admittedly great striker. As much as I think McCormack's made a rid for his own back here, I'm starting to wonder if another manager would have got a tune out of him.

He also says we may try another formation. Fucks sake man, that was what you had 30+ games last season to try, and a pre-season this. Fucking twat hasn't got a clue. When he doesn't even know how long he's been here then I don't think we can be expecting him to have a clue on something as complex as formation and tactics.

Time to go. SB had the backing he wanted. He is inept tactically.
Time to tempt Jokanovic (who seems rattled) and start playing some decent football.
The squad we have is arguably the best in the division. The fans and the owner deserve much better. UTV

Chancer. He doesn't have a plan, he doesn't have a strategy, he's just bluffing along in the same old way he's always done - which, when it's worked, has been fine, but when it's not has exposed him as having no other ideas.

A massive plus would be to play the ball on the ground. That's how we scored last week and made our chances. He should fine his defenders for starting an attack with a hopeful punt to our midget striker.
