Has he lost the crowd?
Has he lost the dressing room?

Yes.
No, but he can't get them playing very well for him.

I will point out I have no personal issues with the man. He seems pleasant enough, he's just not capable of getting us promoted and that's what we need.

Well said. He seems like a genuine bloke who made a lot of limited talent as a player. An awful lot.

As a manager he is done the same with clubs with limited expectations.

He has been rubbish with the step up. Rubbish

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

He just said on Radio WM that "we have the makings of a good Championship team"...if that's what he understands his job description to be then he really is the wrong man for the job.

No, it fucking well is not. We need to be a way-too-fucking-good-for-the-Championship team and we should have been looking like one since last spring.

One usually follows the other, and that's when sackings happen.

See I didn't but again tonight in the post-match he has a dig at people calling for him to go/booing by calling is 'mass hysteria' as if judging him against the very clear targets he's been set and finding him miles short of them is somehow a ridiculous thing to do.

We are dragging this out now.  Wyness needs too remove his head from Bruce's arse and give him the sack.  Stop waiting.  It ain't getting any better.
