You have no divine right to anything. It was a derby and traditional we're poor here regardless of the result.

A point at the Sty isn't a bad result. We're in the top 6 and have some key games coming up.

Agree and on the face of it, a point is a decent result.  What concerns me a big though is that he doesn't seem to learn from mistakes.  Kodjia got bullied there last year and clearly didn't really fancy the physical challenge, so Bruce plays him up front on his own again this year.  We have been taken apart playing a two man midfield featuring Whelan in the tougher games this season and it looked like it was going to happen again until Jedinak came on and we went to a three in there. 

As someone I was standing next to in the pub commented, he still hasn't really found a really settled side or way of playing yet.
or the ability to change it when itís not working.

Wasn't working vs blues he changed it and ii worked

Every time someone answers you, you change the argument.

Sky commentator saying tonight is a tactical masterclass from Bruce.

Ruthlessly efficient 2-0 win.
1 defeat in 12.
7 clean sheets since beginning of September.
Top of the form table.
4th best goal difference.

Bruce out.

I voted Bruce Out. At the moment I'm 'if he keeps getting the results then I don't care if he stays'.

Dont have to change thread to Bruce in, just have a Steve Bruce thread for comment and opinion, I think 503 pages of Bruce out is enough.
