Oh we see the direction he's taking us alright. :lol:

" Taxi! Follow that car with Rafa in it, and don't lose it round the corners!"

Not losing people at corners is probably the only area that Bruce can improve upon Rafa.

I know matchdays are hard to judge a coaches input, but given that Antia was supposedly in charge of set-pieces we were never convincing. We seem better in that respect so far.

Having only watched one match I’m surprised we’re better at anything.

Are you sure we’re not just only scoring from set pieces and conceding more from open play?

He can smell round corners

Especially if it’s the aroma of Gregg’s pasty

Greg might have something to say about that.

Has anyone seen anything in any of our games to think that we're anything but utter s****, results aside?

Decent keeper and quite a bit of pace.

Pinning the lot on that guy is the direction.

All down to Bruce having them running faster in training.

Truth is, if Bruce won the treble here I'd still hate and never ever respect the guy.  I've always dreaded having him as manager when we were linked in the past and I still feel the same about him now

That's bollocks like, there isn't anybody who would fail to respect someone who won the treble unless he was insane.

f*** me, I'd respect him if he finished top 10. Kind of a moot point anyway, it's like saying I'd tell Cheryl Cole to f*** off if she asked for my number.

Well, by that logic you'd respect anyone if they won something, no matter what a despicable c*** they actually are. Fair enough.

Theres a huge difference between respecting an achievement and respecting a person.

How do you respect the achievement without giving the person the credit for it? Do you pretend it was all someone else's work all along?

I never liked Alex Ferguson but I could respect him as a manager.

Fair play if that's your opinion.
Personally, I will never respect him. He did nothing in my eyes to earn it. I think we finished 5th in spite of him, not because of him.

No. We finished 5th despite his efforts, not because of them. I said this at the time so this isn't hindsight.
