Poor performance really even though we could of pinched it in the end. Why he took hourihane off and left onomah on I will never know he was terrible today. A least we didn't loose and hopefully the last trip to play that scum for a few years now.

The game at the Sty is always going to be amongst the most difficult we have irrespective of where they are in the league. Take the point forget the game and move on to Preston.

I hate having Bruce as manager, you know. Even when we win it's hard to build up much optimism or to look forward to us playing again.

Even when we go on a decent winning run it's always at the back of your mind there's a cowardly away performance around the corner.

We were so poor today for an hour.

I just don't see how we can get top 2 approaching many away games like this.

Snodgrass what is the point?
Bringing Hogan on, whatís the point?

Pathetic match from start to finish. We couldn't create chances and we're left to defend far to often. Errant passes and poor giveaways. Jedinak and Whelan in the middle together is a terrible idea. A deadly slow combination that will be carved up against any decent opponent.

Onomah was absolutely terrible, I want to have a look at his stats when available. I don't think the kid completed a pass today, nor a dribble at a defender.

Whelan, while a "warrior", is toast.

Scott Hogan is just non-factor. Im sure he'd rather be spearheading the line but he brings absolutely nothing to the game. Can't beat a defender, can't unlock a defense, can't get himself on the end of a chance. He's either mentally gone or just not good enough.

I thought the back line was okay.

Blues were better than I expected we were way below our standard. Omunamh and Hourihane particurly poor, the latter should get a kick in the bollocks for nearly giving them the game.

This. Sack the boring fucker.

A complete yawnfest.

They're a vile bunch, both the team and the fans.

Exactly. Onomah was nowhere today and Hourihane's ability at set pieces would've helped near the end. Snodgrass was anonymous too. However  a significant improvement in the last 25 minutes and we should've won.

So an awful game and a negative football-free approach from Bruce the cowardly Lion.  No great surprises then.

We looked decent during the handful of times we actually attacked, which was not very often. Thatís all I got.

Didn't deserve to win which is a poor state of affairs. I don't care if it's a derby, they're shit and we should be winning there.

Typical that we got free kicks in good areas once Hourihaine was subbed. I reckon he'd have buried the last one
