This. With Bruce we won't achieve anything more than relegation scraps and at best mid-table mediocrity. I thought these signings would make a change to our playing style.. but still the same old ''push back negative defensive shield.. hoof it up to a isolated Wilson to try run in behind and snatch a goal''.. this is truly terrible. A innovative and modern manager would play to our strengths and see that we don't need to play this negative style of hopeless long balls, unorganized pattern of plays and no control/intensity in the middle. Where's Fraser? Why is he not even on the bench? Get Shelvey off for Murphy.. push Miggy / Joelinton closer to Wilson and put Hayden in with Hendrick in them middle. Maybe Carroll for Joelinton later on as plan b.. but I seriously don't see us scoring with this 5-4-1 formation.. <urgh>
I don't see how you would think that they would change our playing style <scratch>

Its not like any of them are technical players that can retain possession and control the game, apart from Wilson and Lewis who are upgrades on what we had (but thats not saying much) the rest are no better than what we already have.
Exactly this. For years we've just bought wingers and forwards with the intention of counter attacking, rather than investing in the central midfield for players that can actually influence the pace of play and control possession. Until they do, we'll continue to passively concede possession and react to how the opposing teams play - hoping opportunities break for the wide players to make goals out of nothing. Replaced Cabaye with Gini (a year late if I recall) and then never replaced him.

A handball is our best hope of getting the chance to even think about a shot on target

This would be a stupid handball to call, but equally, would have been a stupid offside had they called it.

Can't even celebrate that. Football has become a f***ing farce with decisions like that.
