He's a dead man walking isn't he

What a mess. God knows who we get in now. Tony's gonna have to accept that auto promotion is unattainable this season, so maybe we focus on building a proper team for now. Play offs may still be possible, maybe.

But what this means for the Terry project is anyone's guess. Nor our chances of keeping Kodjia and anyone else with decent value, given FFP

What a disaster

I really don't know what to think anymore. Bottom line is he's had money and it's his team. End of.

It's quite remarkable, his tactical flexibility appears to range from getting the keeper and defence to lump it to a striker whose strength is not in the air, to getting the keeper and defence to lump it to wide men whose strength is not in the air. Between that and making a defence worse, it's quite impressive in a way.

Go, now.

Guaranteed he'll say the same shit after the match as he's been saying since he arrived.

We need someone in quickly before the transfer deadline. Go get Allardyce may not play attractive football but he wins games.

What a disaster

Last season showed we can't allow the season to drift up to October.

Incredible we've spent 60m and Kodjia is our only top class player in the final third at this level. Shambles.

I think SB will limp through to Saturday and if he dosen't win that he'll be toast on Monday morning.

It's some achievement to make us worse than we were under RDM, but Bruce has managed it.

Time to go.

What a fucking shambles when even 4 x promoted SB can't sort us out.

God knows who the next victim brave enough to throw his career away on us will be though.

Now, right now.

I wonder when we we are finally going to reach our lowest point?

Next season when all the money has gone

That's my concern too. New manager, backroom staff, more fucking players. Somewhere, it's going to go pop.

What really grinds my gears is we've spent on Hogan whose either injured or fucking hopeless yet McCarthy can pick up Waghorn and Garner for peanuts and Warnock can get that Laing fella. Whole thing is a farce. We are broken

I was in favour of sticking with him but I don't think there's any point, nothing has changed, we're insanely boring to watch, don't score, can't pass, can't defend and most of the players seem like they don't know what they're supposed to be doing, or just can't be arsed. Also if a team scores first against us you might as well just go off and do something else instead of watching the rest of the game.

I don't who should replace Bruce, what formation is best or what players they should pick, it's just completely drained all of the interest out of me. I just couldn't care less any more, hopefully someone will let me know if we start looking even vaguely competent again in the future.

Now 1 win in 9 from the end of last season, a record that got RDM sacked and that he's already survived once.

I honestly can't understand how anyone can possibly think it's worth sticking with him, what are they expecting to see change in the next few games that he's not given a shit about for 10 months?

Fuck him off before they leave the changing room and find someone who can start changing our style.  It's a year too late but it might still be enough if we act quickly to get this useless fucker out.

I think you must have read my mind. They have sucked all the life out of me now. We are going nowhere fast. We are in the same boat as when he took over. It's crazy but I think only another change can alter our trajectory,
