We are not seeing any sign of improvement or what he is trying to do.

Thing is we may never have expected scintillating football from Bruce, so I'm not surprised we're not delivering that. However he was meant to give us the ability to grind out results and we simply are not doing that, and don't appear to be improving at all, so time to go. He's had nearly a year in charge that is plenty of time.

Bruce is Pulis' unsuccessful twin.

Was there considerable booing at the end?

Yes, and well deserved as well.

It's deeper than Bruce though isn't it?  What exactly does he have in his coaching set-up?  Absolutely nothing that would inspire any kind of innovative confidence at all and he's responsible for bringing them here.  If any of them were any good they'd have the balls to stand up to him and tell him that whatever he's thinking is wrong, even if it costs them their job.

How can a man who had a sparkling career that provided him with winners medals playing under an attack-minded manager throw that ethos out of the window and turn into a manager who, metaphorically speaking, is afraid of his own shit?

Thing is the coaching set up always tends to be as good as the manager. As soon as the manager loses it then any sense of coaching disappears.

haven't watched any of Bruce's after match comments before as I'm not interested in much he has to say but just seen today's on FB

have to say he didn't look under any pressure at all still in holiday mode I thought
looking forward to Boro as if today was just a minor blip in a so far successful season

I generally hate booing your own team but today it was justified. Out of interest when is Bruce's contract up?

He has a year left. Its a rolling contract so that is true at anytime. A years compo is what it will cost us to get rid. Not too bad all in all.

Rolling from the start of the season or from when he joined?
