    Just putting it out there guys, I think we should re-align our expectations and concentrate on stabilizing ourselves in this division (again) before speaking about promotion.

    Please don't take my comment as aggressive mate, i completely agree with your point on English players. My biggest fear relating to this is foreign clubs being priced out of affording our national youth, as they seem to be the only ones that want to give them actual gametime....but i guess that's a conversation for another time.

    Jack Grealish

    Just another stat to consider, he averages an average of 2 key passes a game which is the 8th highest in the Championship. He also averages 3 successful dribbles a game which is the 4th best in the championship. He also averages 3.4 fouls a game, which is the highest in the championship. As you said you need to look at the all round game, and consider he is only 22, before being able to give an accurate opinion on the transfer-value valuation. https://www.whoscored.com/Regions/252/Tournaments/7/Seasons/6848/Stages/16231/PlayerStatistics/England-Championship-2017-2018

    Who do people suggest placing Bruce? My personal opinion is that he has failed, but I also think we need to keep a manager in place until the financial aspect of things is firmly secure.

    I think the board recognize the value Jack brings to both our promotion chances and the engagement from the fans. I can't see the board working so hard to get the fans onside, to them kick them in the teeth by selling the poster boy after failing to be promoted.

    I really do not rate or understand the Bruce tactic of having 3 strikers on the pitch whilst we are trailing. We should of taken control of that midfield when they were reduced to 10 men, but simply couldn't. There was a moment where jack was breaking forwards down the left-center and all 3 of our strikers ran in a beeline to the penalty spot and we lost the ball. How many times have we won from losing positions in the last 18 months? I can't recall many at all.

    John Terry

    Here is a photo for the fans that doubted that he'd be a class signing. "He's past it", "He's just here for the money", "He won't give it is all" ect ect ect.

    I am sure that Brighton and Huddersfield fans had similar concerns, and both have survived. I'd bring Grabban in, the lad has done well since we brought him into the side.

    To be completely honest with you, I would...albeit in a very respectful and constructive manner. I'm also sure that Bruce would be the first to admit that he hasn't finished where he aimed to either. I'd also thank him for the excellent job he has done in terms of squad harmony and club morale, because as you eluded to it is easy to purely provide criticism without looking at the big picture.

    Of course the game isn't played on paper, but there certainly has to be a benchmark of expectation from somewhere...how else can you set expectations? You mention Leicester, I think the entire world would agree that they over-performed with that squad. If you can over-achieve on paper then you can under-achieve. There have been individual errors this season, as all teams/squads experience..but is that the reason we have lost so many points, especially against sides lower down the division? You mention consistency, but surely that is a process that must be managed, I refuse to believe that consistency is achieved on the luck of individual errors. You mention some of the best players in the division would get into our side, and of course they would. But we are talking about a squad of 24 players no? I would say that as a squad of quality and depth on paper is in the top 2 of the division, and therefore has performed under it's capabilities this season. Now there is a debate to be had in-terms of if changing manager would achieve the consistency performance-wise we need, but it is indisputable imo that we have underachieved..and I am sure Xia most likely agrees on this to some extent.

    If you look at the players we have on paper, this squad has underperformed. Of course, we can argue the reasons and variables that has caused it, but that statement is true.

    17/18 Promotion Charge

    Beating Warnock in the playoff final is a beautiful thought.

    17/18 Promotion Charge

    I'l say it again, I really would like Cardiff instead of Fulham in the playoffs.
