    Sir Doug Ellis

    Having been a STH since the early 70’s I’ve seen the good and bad sides of HDE so I understand why some won’t remember him as fondly as others. I’ve been a critic of his however as some have pointed out there’s a family grieving for their loss today. Yes HDE probably benefited more from AVFC than vice versa but it will feel odd travelling to away games without seeing his personalised plate somewhere en route. There’s been many occasions on a wet and windy day when I’ve questioned why I’ve wasted a day out watching yet another turgid defeat but I’m 40 years younger that Doug and he still had the desire to follow our wonderful team. He will be remembered and I hope people put their views aside and pay the respect a 94 year old deserves.

    New Manager Speculation

    Maybe Dyche could be tempted, not much more he can achieve at Burnley and early rumbles of discontent amongst some of the fan base.

    Unlikely as he died a while back

    Rubbish. Whelan took the ball off Bolasie

    Beginning to think he's Bruce's love child, there's no other logical reason for him to be starting games, his performances aren't justifying his inclusion.

    Ratings & Reactions: Sheff Utd v Villa

    I was central behind the goal and the majority were calling for Bruce. What was evident today was how quickly United moved the ball compared to us. Our movement off the ball is pathetic - we’re too dependant on Grealish, McGinn and Kodja coming up with something out of the ordinary to create something. I’ve supported Bruce up until now but I do think he’s taken us as far as he can and change is required.

    Best moment of the game for me was leaving at 86 minutes and avoiding the queue to get out the car park on Eyre St. would also like to publicly apologise to my 2 sons for subjecting them to a performance like that. Beginning of the end for Bruce, the fans have turned....

    No. Makes Jedinak look cultured.

    Pal of mine is a Palace STH and he’s always maintained Bolasie is a better player than Zaha. The injury he picked up was a ruptured PCL if I remember correctly which is worse than a ruptured ACL so he may never get back to the level he was at before the injury.

    Thor was slow in possession- got caught on the ball. Whelan, although slow, doesn’t get caught on the ball as often as Thor.

    Just back from Portman Rd. Had Kodja scored rather than hitting the bar we’d be 2 points better off. However second half we were too pedestrian, too predictable and all too often we bypassed our midfield. The keeper is a worry, the defence appeared to have no faith in him whatsoever. We need a left back to add balance to the team. Thor was too slow today, on reflection Whelan would’ve been a better option. Green is massively overrated - he’s too easy to mark. Make no mistake the current squad under Bruce will not get us up, we either add quality and quickly or we appoint someone who can get this team playing more positively. I’m not sure which is the best option to take but after nearly 2 seasons I’m struggling to keep defending Bruce for a performance like today.

    I was against Terry returning mainly because we lack pace at the back, but after watching the defensive horror show on saturday I would happily have him back. Last season he marshalled the defence superbly, so far we have looked shapeless and vulnerable. Maybe there’s a younger but experienced centre half that could fill the role but I can’t of one at present.
