That Bacuna back-pass against Southampton at home still sits in the memory like it was yesterday. I was livid that day. I think all the crap we saw that season was epitomised in that one moment, and all my frustration came out at that moment. We were absolutely appalling that season. A far cry from now thankfully!
ah Bacuna - forgot about him. Fucking waste of space he was too often.

His backpass was very reminiscent of Hodge's when we were relegated before. All the built up frustration burst out when it happened.

And his big stupid grin as another goal went it or after he failed to track an opposition player. Scary thing is that he was nowhere near the worst of them... #stillscarred

Bacuna scored a good goal in a win against Cardiff at Villa Park and it was my birthday. That is my only positive memory of him. I have never quite recovered from the grim Lambert years. Although to be honest I have never really got over the Graham Turner years either.

seems like longer ago.
What a shambles of a club we was, owner, managers that season, players like Agbonlahor, Guzan, Richards, Lescott etc....

The future is bright....

The mere mention of those 4 has me heading towards vomitting with rage. ******.

Always remember the TV interview with Gabby and Lescott where the former swore and Lescott just laughed. It said everything you needed to know. A core group of players just taking the piss and without an ounce of class between them.

I properly hated that team. Far more than a supposedly rational, grown man should.

Ditto. I couldn't wait to see the back of the whole lot of them. I had a vague idea that relegation would act as an emetic but that was a ballache all on its own. Thank NSWE we've left all that to history.

Not just the team, the whole set up top to bottom just stank the place out.

Didn't Bacuna score the season before in our Cup run. Against Leicester possibly?

Or was it Gil? Only just remembered about him.

Bacuna scored against Albion in the 4-3, although he did his best too miss.

An awful collection of players and manager/s.  Once Di Matteo left, the 'championship' was 10 times more appealing, and that says a lot.  I think that's why I can give Steve Bruce a partial pass.  Anyway, distant memory now, thank feck.

Bacuna's best goal was in the 3-2 win v Man. City, pinged it straight into the top corner.

I thought at one stage he had the makings of a decent right back but it fizzled out. Woeful in central midfield.

I know itís only the championship but I did enjoy it, thatís how bad it was from 2011-2016 seasons. 16-17 we at least started to win some games again (3-0 vs Rotherham felt like winning the European Cup). I know in 17-18 we lost the play off final but it  was our highest points tally ever in the era of three points for a win and I think 24 wins was a record too so I did enjoy it and obviously the season after we got promoted despite winning four games less and seven points fewer. Felt good though after such dross. Thatís why our poor run now is so disappointing, it had been such a good year up to Boxing Day. The results havenít been consistently terrible but the performances are just not up to the previous standard.
