  1. Pre-match thread

    Same for me, but with the proviso that if it's not working, Bruce is prepared to change it up earlier than the 70th minute.

    Hutton just stay at the back and does your job. There's enough up front to do the attacking thing.

    Hutton for Talyor the only change. Let's do this.
  5. Steve Bruce

    I think you probably will. Unsure of whether it'll be the team you want it to be though...

    Surely we were just behind them?

    Good results last night. Great opportunity to put a marker down - please make it so.
  8. Pre match buildup

    De Laet for Taylor, otherwise as you were. It's worked for the last four games - no need to mess about.

    9-10 points from the next 5 please. We need to keep in contention, but I'm not going to get too worried if we're not top 2 by the November break. Back half of Nov and Dec will need to really push on.

  11. Steve Bruce

    If he gets us up - big if - I think whether he stays will be dependent on how we go up. Scraping into the playoffs on the back of turgid 1-0 wins, probably he'll go. Going unbeaten from here and topping the league and he'll get a go in the PL. But let's get up first and then worry about it.
  12. Steve Bruce

    Well I'm glad the international break is over. It's no fun watching an uninspiring manager trying to get the best out of a perennially underperforming squad, serving up dull football which results in a few expected wins against inferior teams by the odd lucky goal. Oh...
  13. Crystal Palace

    On the one hand, they are round the corner from me, so have a bit of a soft spot for Palace, but on the other hand it's good to see our awful records being broken and mesmerising in a car-crash kind of way.

    Given we started the same side for the third game in a week, against a side determined to not lose, I think the Bolton result is fine. We'll be rested for the Wolves game and I'm sure Steve will play the same team apart from a Taylor replacement. Wolves aren't impregnable at the back so we'll get opportunities. I'd take a draw now, but think we have a decent chance of sneaking a win as well. Should be a much better game of football than the Bolton grapple-fest.

    Weak bench. Hope we stay clear of injury.
