His football makes my eyes bleed, surrender possession and let piss poor teams dictate the tempo of the game. Forest were dirt and should have been dispatched comfortably.

Should win the next two, but I don't think we'll beat Burton.

I'm expecting 6 points from the next two

Then Wolves away will be massive. Lots of players on international duty so we'll see who recovers best. This time Bruce needs to use his squad better and play fresher players

The way he persisted with Snodgrass today who's either chronically lazy or obviously unfit doesn't fill me with optimism.

If he keeps winning I think we're all happy aren't we?

Not entirely to be honest. Not calling for his head? Sure. But happy? No. I want to see us play better and that didnt feel comfortable at all.

All about getting into position. Even 4 points from the next two which is the minimum and we'd be pretty much in the top 6.

That spell in October-November will tell us more on where we're at though...

Wolves (a)
Fulham (h)
SHA (a)
PNE (a)
Sheff Weds (h)

More aways than home games which isn't a good sign.

We're a way off automatic promotion in performances so think we'll find that group of games a struggle personally.

If he gets us promoted I am happy and then we can sack him.

Been struggling to work out his attire all season?

Normally wears a tracksuit but what on earth is he wearing? It's different to what Clemence and Calderwood have on, do the club shop sell it?!

He's clearly not match fit, but this was his first poor game.
Like Lansbury, he loves himself. At least Snodgrass has pedigree.

Good signing.

If the next two games go as they should then we are starting to get exactly what we expected when Bruce was appointed, a team that challenges without being either entertaining or dominant. 

I don't enjoy his style of grinding it out but I do enjoy winning so as long as he continues the ends will justify the means...

Ads ignores certain games (loses), but likes to bolster his POV by giving us 6 points from games we have yet to play? 😂

The trouble with you, Ads, saying "I think we'll win....", is that you always say " I think we'll win". Afterwards though, when more often than not we haven't won, you'll come up with a list of excuses as to why "we shouldn't be expected to win".

I'm not having a go, as I find it quite entertaining, I'm just pointing it out in case you thought we were all a bit stupid.



The trouble with you is you engaged me directly last week for the first time and thought it hilarious that I predicted a 3 goal win.

But, you see, that's your 1st correct prediction in many, many, matches. Even a stopped clock...

Like I said. I hope you don't waste money on your 'predictions'.

You do put a smile on my face though. It's no drama. 😉

I think we will win the next two games. Burton won't be easy but Bolton look totally abject and a 'down by Christmas' job.

If that's the case then Bolton sound exactly like the kind of team we've taken care of with minimal fuss over the years!

We did very well with ourselves 2 years ago.
