So we've got an 11 day break now. I hate breaks after defeats.

Especially when the next game is against Wolves. There's something particularly depressing about playing them.

The Toon fans are funny. A Geordie friend of mine messaged me to say that game should definitely go ahead if training ground is closed as it reduces the chances of Bruce  knocking even more footballing ability out of their squad.

Sounds more like a statement of fact than an attempt at humour!

They've got Jimenez out injured. We may have Barkley back. Don't go gung-ho against them, go with the mindset of staying compact and an away point is a good result, they thrive on breakaways. Make them push the pace.

Yeah, but we'll still be there, at their mustard-yellow subterranean shitshack.

Hopefully a game rearranged for late on in the season so as many of us on here as possible get to go.

I always think of it as a decent away ground, probably helps I've seen live three different teams win there in last decade!

Much rather have more Molineux type grounds around within walking distance from the centre than god forsaken dumps like Reading miles out of town and soulless.

No great shock that ours is the club that have had the first proper 'outbreak'. Especially given the state of our training and medical facilities.

But maybe a break will let Bruce have enough time to 'dust ourselves down', 'roll up our sleeves', continue his 18 month long 'work in progress' and all the other bullshit excuses we've been hearing. Honestly, what a chancer this clown is.

Has there ever been a manager so disliked by so many clubs' sets of fans?

Pulis for his `style` of football.
Colin Wanker for his `style` of football and being an all round twat.

P.S. I like other fans who come here.

Selfishly I'm a bit gutted as my wife is out tonight at her daughter's (support bubble innit) and I had the house and telly to myself and was looking forward to us putting the last two games behind us.  It's the right thing to do though, of course!!
