    Sublime. An absolute joy and privilege to watch.

    No, there’s a third choice, “ neither of us deserved to Win”.....but I’d find that just as bad. He said what millions of Managers have said in the same situation.

    Had a poor game. It happens. Still got the goal with a fantastic run into the box. Well done to him.

    I’d be really really disappointed with Bruce or any Manager going to speak to a lower Leaue opposition Manager after knocking them out the Cup and saying “ you know what mate, we deserved that, you were shite”.

    I’ve not seen a team play consistently well for 90 minutes for years. I’ve seen a few come close, there were a couple in the World Cup, out of 60 odd games, I’ve seen Barcelona come close a few times, and Man City but that’s about it. On the other hand I’ve seen countless performances from Teams across the spectrum of ability where they play quite well for a bit, but poorly for a bit, and in between for a bit. I see no earthly reason why we should expect a Championship side to overturn that overwhelmingly common position.

    Agree to a point. The trouble is, he did get the ball, and opportunities, at times, and when he did he was awful.

    He may turn out to be great, or good, or average, or poor. I’m happy to wait and see. But tonight, he was a complete waste of space.

    Agree. We also hit the bar, and had a clear Penalty not given, to balance their disallowed goal. I’ve watched a zillion Cup games where the Lower Club make a decent fist of it, and Yeovil did tonight. But we did what I’ve seen countless ‘ bigger’ sides do, and whether the storm, keep a clean sheet, and Win. We deserved the Win, in my view.

    RHM makes Hogan look like George Best in terms of ball control, and Albert Adomah has clearly been replaced by a semi - movable waxwork replica. Elphicks defending is about as solid as melted ice cream. Grealish is operating on another plane to almost any other player for any side I’ve watched in 2018. Not just in respect of the opposition, which is of course not Premier League, but just his vision and control. That one he trapped on the touch line out of the sky and passed, killing it stone dead, was fantastic. As was most of his contribution. Annoyingly, it took his introduction for the rest of the midfield to actually play. Mediocre performance, but of a type seen often at this stage, and other stages, of cup competitions, from many teams. All you need in the Cup is to stay in the Cup, so I’m pleased enough. I don’t share the concerns some have expressed about the squad - there are very very few teams in the Championship, in any season, that have much more than 14 or 15 players who can be relied on for the First Eleven. Three Wins from our first 3 games for the first time since I was 1. I will take that and make the most of it !

    If, as a fan, you only have one aim, you ( not you personally of course) will spend your life having much to complain about and little to be happy about. Likewise as a player, or even a Club. Personally I view it that the Club/ Manager has many aims and goals, and as fans we have even more. So for me, our home record is something I’m happy about, impressed with, and proud of. And it makes me happy. And Bruce did it. So I’m pleased with him too on that score. In fact there’s a whole host of things I’m pleased about, and that I’ve enjoyed, in addition to some that have not been good at all.

    John McGinn

    Good point. I always put the speedy demise of Lansbury down to the way he was used afterwards, ie not crossing the halfway line ( it was in the days when Bruce was overly - in my view - negative ). Since then he’s never really had much chance, and when he has, he’s largely been ineffective, although he was more like himself against Leeds Away. It will add to the interest to see the comparison, as you say.

    Bruce regularly played Snodgrass, Hourihane, Grealish, Adomah, and a striker, last season. Playing Green, Hourihane, Grealish, Adomah, and a striker, but with McGinn instead of Whelan, is not significantly different surely ?
