"Mass hysteria" Mentioned twice in a few minutes in an interview.

Let it go Steve, don't turn into D.O.L.

Yep he's coming out with all the usual guff which shows he's on the defensive and under pressure...all that aside, he also just said Albert picks himself next week which must be a good thing after his performance today. We really do have too much for most teams in this league with the players at his disposal so he will have no excuses especially when the likes of Jedinak, Adomah, Kodjia and Grealish are all fit.

As a right back, just like Hutton.

It better not turn out to be a flash in the pan, with us going on another shit run. He's seen nothing yet, if he thinks this has been "hysteria".

Me and Mrs S were just discussing this, she, who knows nowt about football but knows how much I want Bruce gone said 'He's done himself no favours with the fans with those couple of comments'.  She was right.  He had a chance to get a few of us back onside for a short while but then he goes all DOL on us.

One slight thing in his favour tonight though was, as he was leaving the pitch he applauded the fans and mouthed the words thank you.  I find it hard to dislike him even though I want him out.

I like him. Just not as our manager.

Apart from pullis, he was probably my last choice. I really don't like his football, nothing personal. Should have been sacked in May because he was bought in to get us up and failed. However, i see no point him going now if he can do it 12 months later. He looks really pissed atm. Well good. I want him pissed off. He's not doing us a favour, he's here to get us up and if him realising he's not here on a tour of the championship before buggering off to some other club who falls for the "Mr promotion" tag, then all the better.

On his SSN interview he  says again "Lets hope that shuts a few people up" and mentions mass hysteria. There is really no need for that. He gets paid about a million a year and as a professional should refrain from biting like that.

An intelligent bloke would have resisted the opportunity to be a classless twat, but not Steve.

By mass hysteria what he really means is an under performing manager being put under some scrutiny when results and performances haven't improved in 9 months.

We've ruined the careers of about six managers in a row!

Which is one of the reasons I'm sceptical that if we just get In whoever is the best person available this month and we'll definitely improve

No we haven't, 6 managers have ruined their own careers by failing in the biggest job they'll ever have.
Agree totally, the club keep getting the wrong manager with the possible exception of Garde who was treated disgracefully.


Would you want the manager who was treated disgracefully back in charge tomorrow? I wouldn't. It hardly compares to the treatment of Tony Barton does it?

He's heading into DOL territory with those stupid comments.
