Posted on the post match thread but probably more relevant.

Steve Bruce's away league record is played 19 games, won 4, lost 12 and scored 13 goals.

F***ing 'ell.

Really think we should go for Allerdyce, he gets unfair press for unattractive football but he does what he can to win. He wasn't long ball football for Sunderland with Defoe, nor when he signed Jay Jay Okocha, Djorkaeff and Anelka at Bolton. He sets up his sides to exploit opposition weaknesses and if that means defensive, then its an organised defence.

Bruce is just sitting back, he's not organised the side, he's not making subs to change games, he's hoping we win, and not doing anything to change it.

The players obviously know he's gone based on that bag of bollocks.

As suggested by some, I think it's time we brought in Mike Phelan to give Bruce some help.

Mike can hold a large cardboard box so Steve can empty his desk into it. Then Mike can drive him home.

I was tempted to make the options, now, 11pm, midnight.

Pardew, Moyes, Allerdyce are all the same unimaginative lazy choices we've made far too often in the last 7 years.

Pick a style we want to be playing in 2 years, find a manager that plays that way now and is at a club that are a big fish in their league and do whatever we can to get him the funds to make a couple of key signings in this window.

Bruce needs to go, just like Bacuna he might be ok elsewhere but he's made a fucking mess of this and isn't good enough to be worth giving a chance to fix it himself.

I think he will get 1 more home game...lose that and he is toast. Not just the defeat but the manner of it and games so far under him.
