Didn't Bruce say the home form was great and our problems always came away ? [uh-uhhhh buzzer sound]

Is Wyness still protecting him, if so they should both be fired.

Bruce: Davis was sore on Friday,  has been suffering for two weeks.

Why play him then?

Because despite signing a load of players none of them are target men...
So he is a manager who is hoping and wishing rather than planning.

If we don't believe he will win 4 of them then sack the fucker now.
I would bet my house on Vruce not winning 4.

We've already wasted the back end of last season, a pre-season and 6 games this season, he's going to end up going at some point this season, we're doing ourselves no favours at all by delaying the inevitable.

We also don't seem to have one player in the squad with genuine pace. How the fuck does that work in a squad this size?

With appalling player recruitment and selection policies unfortunately. Wynness needs to go along with Bruce.

Has he got an identifiable style of play - no
Has he got a settled formation - no
Has he got a successful record in the transfer market - no
Are we playing well - no
Is he going to get us promoted - no

Get rid.

RDM was a Xia appointment so the owner dosen't really have grounds to dismiss the CEO given his own wasn't a good choice.

Didn't Steve Round play a big part in the recruitment aswell?

I doubt we're sacking our CEO and Sporting director. Much easier just to pay up the manager.

it seems that Xia, Round or Wyness lack the ability to chose a manager successfully

Could we not ask Doug to come back in an advisory role?
