  1. Just been reading the Leeds managers comments after the sha game. How refreshing is it to see a manager say i fecked up? Something I'd love from Bruce. Here

  2. Just going back to the RDM discussion. For me, it always felt that the losses and draws with RDM were unlucky, and with Bruce, for the most part the wins seem lucky and the draws expected.

  3. This is one of the reasons I think brendon Rodgers would be a good fit. Some people think he would not come and manage in the championship but, let's be honest, it's at least in a par with the SPL in terms of quality. With the right vision he would jump at the chance. Bruce is a seige manager - dig in and battle hard against better teams to bring them down to your level. This doesn't work when you are the ones with the better players. You need to be hammering home the quality advantage to be successful.

  4. I'm in a funny place in regards to Wagner. I think it was incredible that he got Huddersfield promoted. More incredible that he kept them there. Small club, minimal budget - the ultimate underdogs. But then I think about Steve Bruce and his promotion of underdogs, and even Owen Coyle getting Burnley into the PL. It's one of those where it's impossible to tell. If he gets a chance here and fails, it's a bad decision. If he goes somewhere else and succeeds it was a bad decision too. The one caveat, and it's not just Bruce but applies to a lot of other managers and players, th

  6. Yet another example of Villa placing a mediocre player on a whopping salary. 40k per week for him is shocking. We still to this day throw money around like we are a big premier league club. Nobody in charge seems to have got the memo that we are not a big club but a mediocre also ran with a limited budget.

  8. I respect your right to Post whatever but personally I wish people would shut up about his parents. Especially when it’s “ a bloke says there’s a rumour that...” In my view it’s distasteful whether used as a criticism or a defence. Nobody other than him knows how that affects him, and unless he chooses to refer to it it shoukd ( IMO) be left alone.

  10. I was speaking to a friend about this the other day funnily enough. Under RDM, we actually played some nice stuff and I always thought we were unlucky when we didn't draw/win. Then, Bruce came in and we were winning games when we didn't play well. The problem is, this will only ever last so long. Bruce has no idea how to set this team up and there is absolutely no long term strategy. Should he get another transfer window, he'll just go out and buy the best players he thinks are available regardless of which positions we need to strengthen or how the team is set up to play tactically.

  15. He's just got to go. Today we briefly enter the top half of the table but will sink further tomorrow. 1 win in 9? Each match is a carbon copy of the previous. Just pot luck if we get a goal or not. You could argue for his past record or stability if it looked like we were playing well, on the cusp of improving, playing well but being unlucky but none of that is happening. The hugely talented squad look amateurish, like they've never played together before. We struggle at the back to contain average teams, we struggle to create, we cannot keep possession. Someone sa

  21. Because an investigation delays and throws doubt on his confirmation, and that's all that matters. Especially because he will give Trump a bulletproof vest - he believes a president can't be charged for a crime. Kavanaugh will be confirmed and all today did was paint a paper thin veneer of legitimacy on proceedings. The entire thing is a farce, a charade. It's even more galling when you have the Republicans braying about political games being played when they blocked the confirmation of a judge themselves for an obscene time and patted themselves on the bank. And that guy wasn't an a

  23. So 30 hours a week free childcare. Given how bloody expensive it is, I think that's a cracking policy. It will enable parents to take less time off work, unburdened grandparents and give opportunities to people who are put off having children because of the cost. This is one of the sorts of things that make our society feel more fair. There are some insanely wealthy corporations and individuals in this country, asking them to pay a bit more and still prosper in order to make life a little bit better for everyone seems absolutely fair to me.

  24. Not sure how much of this has carried over into the new game, but I had a strict setup that I'd do for every career mode in 18 that was about as optimised as you could get it. For the 6 scout instructions, I'd have: #1 - Any ability, any position, contract under 1 year, age 23-35 (used this to pick up expiring contract players on a freebie from January onwards). #2 - Promising, any position, age 16-21 (used this to find youth prospects). #3-#6 - All remaining scouts set to first team quality and whatever positions your squad was weakest in with all other parameters set to de

  27. If we had lost he would have been gone. After this result i am not so sure. Those players out there tonight were not playing for him. I'm just frustrated, it has one of the most depressing nights of football I have experienced in recent memory. I really want him gone.

  29. The positive in this is that across the US there has been a spike in reporting of sexual assaults, Ford's legacy is that young women who find themselves in the situation she was in will feel more confident in going immediately to the right authorities. That confidence is too late for her - if she'd been able to report this in the 80's we might be in a different place now - we're not. There's no evidence that Kavanaugh committed an assault on her, no prosecutor would take it to court, there's just nothing but the accusation - now I don't like him, I hope very much he doesn't make it to the

  32. One of the things that annoys me about Bruce is taking the underdog mentality. We are bigger and better than nearly all the championship clubs and should be going out to dominate like Citeh / Utd do. It won't always work - everyone loses at times - but we should be looking to impose our gameplan (lol) on others and making them adapt to us. Especially at home.

  38. For us to move on he needs to go. He's had more than enough backing and managed to mismanage his purchases , sales and loans to a big enough scale to warrant the sack. If it looks like a shit formation and they play shit football and get shit results then the manager is shit . If we had a knowledgeable director of football he would have gone 14 months ago. Time to get the right people I'm who can see what the majority of us see and replace him with someone who can play a team with some type of direction, its not rocker science when you have a squad Ike ours .
