    Dean Smith

    Bruce definitely did steady the ship last season and should get credit for that. He stopped us being a soft touch, who concieded a ridiculously amount of last minute goals, who were mentally weak and he did bring a sense of harmony back in the dressing room. The negatives are he underperformed and with squad he had promotion was the target. He was ‘there or thereabouts’ with a playoff final but he failed to meet his target. Also there were some very good games but overall the football was dire and uninspiring. Ideally would of loved Smith from the start of the season but can fully understand why we kept Bruce over the summer as we were in a lot of trouble and actually needed Bruce’s stability. This season we then regressed massively under Bruce, became a soft touch again defensively and he looked out of ideas from the limited style of his approach and was rightly sacked. Que Mr Smith, I’ve rambled long enough. But simply put Smith is better, a lot better! Long may it continue.

    John McGinn

    Someone needs to make a montage of all of McGinns arse tackles. Or we need a chant for him. Mcginn is f**kin class! He tackles with Arse! someone with more talent than me can finish the song

    John McGinn

    What is this arse block/tackle he keeps doing, and why aren't more top players doing it? It is super effective!

    Harold Moukoudi

    No Jedinak at CB! I thought Moukoudi was only being brought in as cover for the back 4! Bruce out!

    Steve Bruce

    I think our defense will get better given time. Playing people out of position doesn’t help, but I think the main issue was spending all pre season experimenting with 3 at the back, only to revert back to a traditional 4 at the back once the season started. It has put us weeks behind in terms of preparation and being a solid defensive unit.

    Match Thread: Ipswich v Villa

    I know we aren't winning. But all that over reaction to Jedinak being at CB, had a solid game so far.

    See how it plays out first guys, I’ll take 3 points with Jedi in net.

    Jack Grealish

    Absolute roller coaster this transfer. One more day of crap to put up with, then we can focus on winning the league!

    Alan Hutton

    Bump. The Prophet deserves to be top of the forum for the next 24 hours.

    Here is a novel thought why don't we see how the match goes, then judge it then based on actual facts. UTV

    18/19 Race for Promotion

    We are weaker from last season in some respects losing (Terry, Snodgrass and Johnston in particularly), but there is every chance we could have a stronger team this season still if things go our way. After our initial poor start we still managed to compete last year without Grealish for half a season and Kodjia for the full season. Obviously there are still questions whether Grealish will still be here and Kodjia will return to form. But if they both do we arguably have our 2 best players ready for the full season. This coupled with what ever signings/loans we bring in between now and the deadline means there is no reason we can't challenge for promotion.

    18/19 Race for Promotion

    Just been on Stoke forum, their fans are wanting Shawcross dropped and think there squad is awful and fear relegation. Good to see knee jerk reactions are universal. But goes to show how nothing is guaranteed in this league.

    New Manager Speculation

    The thing is IF Henry becomes manager what are our expectations of him in his 1st season. And if he fails to reach get promoted or be up there fighting for a playoff place will we turn on him? Cause let’s face it without Terry, Snodgrass, Johnston and Grabban and still possibly Grealish and whoever else we might sell we are a weaker team. Especially as we can’t afford to replace them with any quality. Chances are it’s going to be a naff season but will we show Henry patience? It is doubtful considering how quickly peoples mood turn negative after even one defeat.
