How many diagonals have been Schar to Atsu/Willems compared to the opposite by the way? So easy to defend against.

Like watching two borderline relegation teams slog it out

Borderline???

On the assumption that there’s a least a few worse.

Commentator telling us that Bruce must be livid because we’re not on the front foot and pulling out of challenges :lol:

We're not on the front foot because Bruce will be confused as to how to set his team up at home after last week's success away at Spurs. I predicted it in the pre-match thread.

Bruce is just another Pardew, he'll keep juggling formations after every defeat because he really has no idea. He himself has said he doesn't do formations.

Are we actually sat back as much as we were at Spurs, for this home game against Watford who is at the bottom with us?! Not watching the game so can't see.

I must admit I thought Bruce may just go with the same approach even against lesser teams.
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.

1-0 down to a club in total meltdown with rows of empty seats right in the main camera angles visibility.

Our tactics are incredibly predictable.

Tiny bit of pressure from Watford and booooot it in the channels

Just as I say that, Dummett floats a beautiful 70 yard ball into Ben Foster. This is why I don't rate Dummett in these sort of games and it's not some agenda.

I'm not watching it, that was just my opinion before the game, that Bruce would have no idea how to switch up a gear after winning with a backs to the wall performance based on Rafa's set up. From the reports at the ground it sounds like we are really struggling to get on the front foot so only confirms Bruce's absolute incompetence for me.

Sign young striker, bring him to PL and will instantly gain value, then isolate him up front and ask him to perform a Shearer type role and then watch his value plummet  :lol:

Probably the most empty seats I've seen at St James' in a PL game. Seems the boycotting is working, particularly given the win at Spurs. Strange like, as all I ever read from the groups and protesters is how fans won't stop going to games regardless and there'll be 48k there every week. Well it appears they have stopped going in significant numbers.

Yeah, it's not surprising really. But still just so pathetic.

Both teams trash in attack, but even worse in defence.

I'm expecting a 1-1 draw and Luke Edwards to lecture fans on twitter that it tops Keegans 5-0 against Man Utd.

Just saying, it would be canny to hear them show a bit appreciation and acknowledge the visible progress being made.

Looking forward to seeing how many the club claim they have sold, no way will they have sold 1k this morning so the official attendance should be under 45k
