Go Now

Out of your depth at a club this size Steve. You can fuck off with your negative tactics.

Awful, a point at home to Brentford flatters us, we really got away with this one. 1 shot on target and it took 85 minutes.  Proof that the Norwich game was a fluke, far too many times under Bruce this has been the standard of performance. Zero chance we're going up if he remains manager. We're worse than when he arrived.

With the players he has at his disposal it's a disgrace to conjure up such shit.

How many more times do we have to hope the next match will kick start us off?

Fucking diabolical. We're approaching the point of the season, like last where the gap will be too large to make up. He has to go. Now.

Was there considerable booing at the end?

6 points from 6 games.

Sorry pre-season on paper that should have been double that.

Bruce wants to win every game 1-0. I don't want that kind of manager at this club. I want a team that plays football and has no fear. Aside from the crap results, it's the performances which stick in the gullet.

Whoever would have thought that a manager that spent 35 league games last season being mainly crap and negative would have carried on exactly the same way this season and that pre-season and a transfer window would make no difference to his natural mindset.

We've won 2 of our last 12 league games, W2 D5 L5.

He has to go this week, we won't beat Boro either way.

I just worry we haven't even looked at replacements given how our chief exec keeps talking up Bruce.

An emphatic yes from me.

With the players at his disposal, our dismal performances can only be due to poor coaching and management and both of those are his responsibility. I'm glad I didn't go today and I hate saying that.
