The fact he also sent Hayden out for the 2nd half after injuring his hamstring was another master stroke. Not only does he not have any concept of tactics, the mismanagement of injuries at every club he’s been to is testament to his general incompetence.

The most damning statistic for me however is 10 times now in his 43 games we have lost by 3 goals or more. This was a team well drilled who rarely lost by more than 1 goal to even the top clubs.

This nonsense that he is trying to change our style needs put to bed, he doesn’t have any style of play and he f***ing knows it.
spot on , he,s just bluffing it from week to week

The loss of Hayden will really show how bad our midfield is and how he's unable to do anything about it.

To be fair no club in their right mind goes from Rafa to Steve Bruce. The club is a joke.

Even worse when you consider WE LET Rafa go.

We didn't sack him. He didn't quit. We let him go for having too much ambition. It's an absolute disgraceful how there was little back lash from both our fans the media to this. Instead we've had to listen to how much of a lovely bloke Bruce is and how much better the football is now.

Yep, I can’t even predict how he’ll compensate for it.

Local journalists need shot with s*** for never pulling him up at all. They are all so desperate for a football friend, they just don’t care how utter w*** he is. Bunch of snivelling, spineless arse licking c***s the lot of them.

It's all right there. We're the worst team in the league :lol:
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

They do pull him up, but whether we like it or not, it's not in their interests to upset him. The club will pull access to journalists, as soon as they criticize. Look at Pardew and McClaren.

We as fans want the journos to do our dirty work by putting so much pressure on them that they resign but that wont happen.

Just because there is covid, shouldn't stop the fans sending a message to him.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

I've wanted to defend him for so long, hoping that things could change. Said a few games ago that I'd give him until November to see how performances were, to see if I'm not thinking the same things as I was against Tottenham, against Brighton, against Newport. But here we are, nothing is changing. New manager is needed to get more out of these players, it isn't sustainable the way we are, most fans could see that a mile out. We're not a relegation threatened side yet, we can afford a manager with new ideas rather than hoping for a short-term fix. If we leave it until it's too late like in 15/16, it's a much greater risk than proactively swapping him out now - doesn't take a genius to say the things I think are obvious!

Why did you want to defend him? He came in with a disgusting track record at this level. Everyone with half a brain could see it was going to be a woeful appointment. There is absolutely nothing to defend.
