Bruce Sacked at last (now official)

UK Redsox starts the match threads, I start the *insert name of manager* out threads.

So with that, I give you:

Bruce out!

Lost 7 off the last 8. 1 point in 2017 playing shit football and he still don't know what his best formation is. He's got to go

Urgh. Pains me to say it but this is becoming a viable question. I thought it would take a fuck up of nuclear proportions to even be considered and low and behold that is what has happened. I think long term it's ridiculous to sack the manager again but we are in a position where we need a bounce and fast

How can we be in this position? It defies all logical analysis.

Do we really think anyone else that would be available will be much better? There is something wrong with the culture of the club, that set in the day MON walked!

Yes, now, give the job to Rowett who has shown he can organise teams into something resembling hard to beat.

I don't care how we play right now, I want to see points on the board.

no there isn't,
it all starts and ends with the manager and that goes for all those that went before

We'll be seen as entirely hatstand, punting another manager overboard.

But at what point is that actually the lesser of two evils. Rapidly approaching that juncture now.

It's not as if our form has nosedived since Leeds at home in Dec. Results have, but we have been gash for most of his four and a bit months. No obvious signs of a recovery, so how long do you endure it.
