    Great appointments. The job is not too big for him as some fear remember we are in The Championship a league he knows like the back of his hand. If concerned about handling player egos then again fear not Terry will deal with that. I do not expect him to be an overnight success but I do think we will see improvement in football, tactics and coaching. If the players buy into the ideas then there is no reason we cannot get into the top 6 by the end of season. As a fan base we need to all get behind this and understand it might be a rocky road as their ideas are implemented.

    interesting that umbro have done this and I have seen hummel have done the same for Spurs shirts so maybe they will be next!

    18/19 Race for Promotion

    Depends who we get as manager. If for arguments sake it's Henry and Terry and the players get behind their ideas and the fans get excited and believe then anything is possible. Crap defence or not we do have the possibility of outscoring most opposition if coached properly. If the manager is someone we have no faith in its impossible. It will be a snowball effect from one decision an impossible juggernaut to stop if we get it right.

    New Manager Speculation

    Henry alone but with the right support staff he would be fine. Played under Wenger and Pep won everything in the game at club and country. Should be attack minded bearing in mind where he played. Apparently knows players from all over Europe. There was defiantly something in those rumours before the start of the season so I don't see anyone but him to be honest.

    JT with Ranieri would suffice

    Jack Grealish

    I would go the other way and say the only reason he signed is because of the future he was sold. Bruce has done well for Jack but sticking him out on the wing is not one of them! The kid should have the team built around him and maybe that is what has been sold to him by Purslow.

    John McGinn

    Why has he been taken off corners and free kicks? His delivery was excellent from the couple of games he was allowed to take them! Another reason to have a go at the manager!

    JT is waiting in the wings to be player manager.

    You are doing QPR a disservice there my friend! However yes we are inept in defence nobody to command the back line since JT left

    Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Sheff Wed

    Chester gave the ball away for both goals from my view in The North Stand. The whole defence gave the ball away countless times. The one tactic to get it wide and cross is so easy to defend. McGinn aside that was pisspoor. Could have been 5 easily. It’s Groundhog Day though we all see it but we just do the same thing all the time. Decent teams expose us. Weaker teams trouble us. I cannot believe we are not better after 2 years and 4 transfer windows. I am convinced we have good players being made to look shite by bad management and coaching. Change that and see the difference.

    Steve Bruce

    That is what he should be saying though! Explain that and be bullish about we will get better as they learn from each other and nobody would moan about his press conference. Obviously even Stevie Wonder can see that we are disjointed and play shite for most of the 90 mins. If you come out after and say we won but we have to play better and say I think we will as we bond then no one can argue.
