Thought's from earlier. Jedinak is not a center half and there is no reason why he should be playing there when you have a promotion winning center half sitting on the bench. I'm also puzzled as to why McGinn was taken off corner duty when we saw last week he can swing a decent one in.

It's sometimes tough to play against ten men (we took them apart when it happened last season) but today we made harder work of it than we should have. It was extremely frustrating because the only thing I can recall Ipswich doing was scoring from something of our own doing and having a chance in the second half which flashed across the goal.

I don't mind AEM but it's a waste of an attacking position when he is pushed further forward. He has defensive mind when playing that position, was much the same start of last season. He's better coming from deep and getting crosses in.

Dunno when Hogan is going to get fit or if Davis is still alive but wouldn't be against in short term playing one of them upfront and putting Kodj out wide.

I agree he's a Right back really. But if green and adomah are both playing poorly I can see why he's doing it

I would like to see if we could get hourihane in the side tho. Even if it means jack or McGinn having to start wide
So if 3 players are not performing well in the wide role why persist ? Try a diamond or wing backs with Axel in his proper role as aCB ?
Green was scoring goals from a central position in pre season.Kodjia might like his support or that of RHM
Also either of those 2 systems would  free up McGinn and Grealish who should be our strenghs.
But tactical changes at short notice are probably a step too far for Bruce to handle.

Itís telling that we knew weíd not win from the moment Ipswich went down to 10. Itís an inept manager that hasnít the gumption to beat 10 blokes who should have been blowing through their arses by minute 75, instead they were going for the winner. Pathetic.

That sums it quite well for me. Not only is he not the sharpest knife in the drawer, he is more like one of those fucking massive soup spoons.

Slept on it and it still feels like a good hiding.  After all the pain and humiliation of Wembley and the aftermath club turmoil, the plain truth is that nothing has changed.  The same underperforming players, the same lack of tactical nous, the same sloppy attitudes.  We shall now find out if our new owners are as naive and stupid as their two predecessors.

Just looking at the way other teams play(Leeds, Millwall, Sheff Utd, the Baggies, and even Middlesbrough under Pulis, to name a few), from the highlights, our lot are so boring to watch in comparison.

They're all playing decent stuff, and usually winning. I don't like Bruce's mentality that this league has to be one giant scrap. You can play good football and win as Wolves and Fulham showed last year.

It'll be a fucking brilliant day when Bruce goes.

On the other hand, 7 points out of 9 isn't a bad start. It's just that the football is eye bleeding in style. Odd team selection, again, yawn inducing post match interviews and, oh the list goes on.

I don't know why people are questioning Bruce's managerial capabilities. He will definitely keep us up for the third year running.

It's statistically harder for the home team to go down to ten men than the away team. We put them to the sword a few months ago and ought to have done the same again.

Although a midfielder being sent off has less impact, as it costs 0.6.points on average.

Grabban was the difference, as the ball sticks to him.

We will not go up under Bruce not because we don't have the players simply because this manager is frightened of losing. The expectations of a club of our size is such that it has got the better of most of the managers since M.O.N and so it seems this also applies to Bruce. People say he's a good bloke, very likeable, well maybe that's part of the problem. We have had a decent start points wise but look at who we've played.

It's not as though we have a raft of new players getting to know each other.

This is just another wasted season. It's following the same pattern as last year with a slight downgrade on players which will lead to us scrambling to make the play offs. As is, under Bruce, we have very little chance of going up.

You can't call it a wasted season after 3 games, that's ridiculous.

It feels like we have been wasting seasons since 1998.
