Longstaff defo our best player. Great to have him back.
Yeah. Him and Hayden have looked alright.. next game would like to see something like this

Darlow
Lascelles Fernandez Schar
Manquillo / Murphy Hayden Longstaff Lewis
Miggy Wilson ASM

<diva> <diva> <diva>

Edit : Knowing Bruce he'll still play Joelinton & bring Hendrick back. He'll bench Miggy. <urgh> #BruceOut

Bruce needs to go before January or we are absolutely f***ed. We’ve used all of our luck already and are playing the worst football in the league.

This. Need a new manager to get new signings in. We can't keep being linked to Burnley's rejects (Jack Cork).. typical Bruce signing that would be. Wouldn't improve the squad at all. After Joelinton's performance today.. get that Ahmed Musa guy signed up on a free..at least he's got pace and movement which Joelinton doesn't have. <urgh>

We are horrendous to watch. No urgency to get forward - players just mincing about. f***ing disgraceful.
I don't think I've ever seen a positive comment from you. Even if we've played well <laugh>
When was that ? I must’ve missed it .

Didn't watch the match. I think I'm the real winner here.

Anyone want to give me a match review though?

Bruce’s comments, seriously ? Utterly tiresome
Seems we play very very good big teams every week these days.

The ref blew the whistle to start the match and from then on we proceeded to rarely play football

I spent the second half painting the bathroom ceiling and the coving in the living room.

First half was pretty damn bad. Apart from a few forays forward it was all them and we were only still in it thanks to Darlow.

Second half we played better. Hayden blasted a great chance over the bar but it hit his arm as he controlled it so wouldn't have counted thank god. Joelinton had a good chance where he should have at least hit the target. Longstaff had a wonder strike that hit the bar and Carroll had a good chance right at the death for a consolation goal but it was tipped round round for a corner. Most of those chances came after Chelsea had scored there second though (typically when we were having our best spell of the match) and they took their foot off the pedal after that.

Saying that, they still had some decent chances to make it 3. They cut us open too easily at times and when we attacked our lack of communication in the final 3rd was usually shocking. We huffed and puffed in the last 30 mins and at least showed some running and effort (both of which were completely lacking against Southampton) but make no bones about it, we deserved nothing from this match. Players to come out with any real credit today were Darlow and Longstaff.

Oh and our set pieces were s***. So s***.

I ask myself this most times we play. <yikes> <laugh>

Wouldn't be Newcastle United would it? <cheers>

Seriously though Bruce needs to go if these performances continue sooner rather than later our luck will turn around and those lucky wins/draws will start turning into loses and by the time you know we're in the bottom three, Miggy / ASM will go in the summer, we get relegated and we become 5under1and.. <urgh>

God forbid. We need to wake up and smell the roses. #BruceOut. Tactical disaster. Inept. Dinosaur. Too negative. Too defensive.

We have the players (on form) to play a decent brand of attacking football, it doesn't have to be about possession but being more positive & being on the front foot. We are not expecting results against the top 4/6.. but if we are going to play like that we might aswell forfeit and give them the three points without playing. Leeds have shown that even with a limited amount of talented players & without having riches to spend in the transfer market you can still field a balanced unit & push forwards be expansive, be attacking and most importantly play with courage / bravery and confidence. Yes you may concede while your at it but it's better than watching us getting dominated and losing 0-4.. why not go for it and if you lose 6-3 or 5-3 or 4-1 then so be it. We need a fearless approach but with Bruce we're never going to get that and all Ashely cares about is ending 17th regardless of the dross we have to put up with. It's really sad to see how things are going.. s*** manager, s*** tactics, s*** motivation, s*** man management and s*** mindset. <urgh> <erk>

Bruce is lucky that there’s no fans as there would be a lot of hostility coming his way. I’m sure he’s a nice bloke which all the pundits say he is, but we are dreadful and he’s got no ideas how to fix it. Complete lack of energy or motivation from the players, most had a 2 week break and should have hunted down Chelsea from kick off as most of their team had been away on international duty but we just sat deep (as ever) and let them knock the ball around and open us up. That’ll be the easiest away game they’ll have all season.

I sit there screaming at my computer every week as I watch us knock it around the defence only to get pressured into passing it back to the keeper who lumps it up to the opposition to start playing again. I don’t know why I’m wasting my weekends but I can’t look away! The number of times we had the ball on the wing in the final third today and it somehow ended up back with Darlow instead of in their box. It’s so frustrating and there’s no pressure available from the supporters to jolt the players into doing anything different. Anyone with a shred of talent will be gone come Jan.
