At home against 23rd in the league and a team with 10 men for 60 minutes and we scored a grand total of zero. Get him out.

Blimey, what's that? About two wins in 12 games or so? And Wyness thinks Bruce is good? This is beyond a joke. Screw this, Barnsley is a must win or he gets the sack malarkey. Do it tonight. His record is diabolical for where we want to be.

I suppose it's a fairly simple question. Bruce was well aware that the target this year is promotion this. If Dr Xia believes he can achieve it he stays, if he doesn't he goes. My view is there's absolutely no chance of promotion with the negative 'don't lose' attitude we play with. Therefore he has to go.

We're 3 points off the bottom 3. We've regressed with a better squad, that's some achievement. Is that "top 6" clause in his contract ?
Should've gone end of last season...it's not changing under him, it's not gonna change under him. He's lost, completely and utterly lost.

Why are we being so patient? That is a dreadful record given the money spent.  I have no faith in Bruce and very little in Wyness.  Fast losing faith with the Doc too. Bin Bruce.

One Simple question the board need to ask, will we get promoted with Bruce?

I'm sure Tony is looking at alternatives

But we may as well wait until we think we can get one / until Bruce turns it around

Change managers in September and you really are looking at slim pickings

Whatever he had he hasn't got any more. The game's moved on and he hasn't. The only thing stopping him being sacked is that they probably haven't got a clue who to appoint in his place.

There should no longer be a question mark in the thread title. He got extremely lucky that Trare made that brainless challenge and we still couldnt take advantage. Granted we had the chances to win in the 2nd half, but why does it takw until HT to make the changes? The first half was garbage.

He doesn't deserve to be in charge against Barnsley. He has to go
