Garbage from SB. Set up to draw at home to Brentford. Mission accomplished.

Get him the fuck out of VP.

Why does Wyness need to go? We have an obsession  with getting rid of everyone

Surely now he must go. Not a single game more for this man. The sad thing is it's four months too late. I hated this appointment from day one because his football is and always has been awful even when he was successful. I've said it before but the longer he is in charge the longer it will be to recover from him. I genuinely believe that we are here for years now, desperately sad for a club with our history.

Why is it that every single Ferguson-era ex Man Utd player to go into management plays this corned beef style of football? Weren't they watching?

I thought we were getting it together over Wigan and Norwich.
I am so disappointed with our play and result today, after the international break.
All teams have it, so why on earth couldn't we muster some multiple shots on goal like before and win the bloody game?

Possibly one for the match thread but I would like to know from SB what on earth happened.

Bruce was the single outstanding gettable manager for the job of getting us straight back up, it may not have worked out but he was the right appointment at the time.

How can they be tired on the back of an international break in September?  Fistfaced fuckwit, off you fuck.

No he wasn't Sean Dyche was and we wouldn't give him the contract he wanted. Very silly

Was this the same Sean Dyche who thought Ashley Westwood was worth 6m?

The same Sean Dyche that's turned Pointy into a player according to my Burnley supporting mates.

It's exactly because they're trying to be like him that they fail.  He didn't work with the players in training or worry about complex tactics, he focused on getting the right type of players and the right type of coaches so they could be formed into a a cohesive unit and then he got the best of the squad that created and read the games better than anyone around.  He was great at it but for some reason all of his ex-players focus only on getting in the players and ignore the coaching aspect and don't have the same ability to understand the flow of matches.
