Carver was worse than Kinnear, Bruce hasn't even come close to Carver yet and I doubt anyone ever will. That's not even remotely praise though.

Worse than McClaren, worse than Pardew, worse than Carver. There’s only one final line to cross: Kinnear.

He's not worse than McClaren yet imo and f*** me Pardew what I'd give to have him back. Doesn't deserve to be grouped wiith Joe and the two Steves for sure.

What bothers me most is my complete apathy. I can't even muster the enthusiasm to get angry anymore. I am so close to not giving a s*** about this club.
This. It's like I'm angry but I don't care at the same time. The Championship should be fun.. our only saving grace is West Brom & Sheffield United look worse than us & Fulham / Brighton are leaky & look in trouble, Burnley I see somehow ending 17th with there grit, solidity and experience. We might just about nick 16th if we ride our luck.. but even then regardless what happens this season he needs to go. Enough is enough.. this squad is good enough to be aiming higher than mid-table and looking at top 10 with a half decent manager. We need a change of mentality, structure, tactics and bravery. BruceBall is dreadful. #BruceOut

Next 3 games against Arsenal, Leeds & Everton. I don't see any points there.. all those teams will play us of the park... <urgh> <diva>


BRUCE OUT !!! He needs to resign or get sacked. It doesn't feel like it will be happen.. but it needs to happen.

We deserved to lose as soon as that starting XI was announced.
So this. Got it completely and utterly wrong.

Easiest £60 I've ever made. Should have put more money on us to lose.
What were the odds on Sheffield to win ? Should've put a good £100 on them would have been a quick easy double flip. <urgh>

Carver, Kinnear and McLaren were/are worse than Bruce, which shows the dross we've had as managers.

Saying that. Our last six Prem games: W0 D2 L4 GF4 GA11, knocked out of both cups inbetween that and some god awful performances, it has been an absolute shocking 4 weeks.

Missed out on a easy £150 profit.. <urgh> .

Could have got more as 1-0 correct score would have been predictable.

Anyways.. good night from me. Bruce Out. No excuses no more. Out of his depth. If you can't take the game and go for it against the bottom side with no wins & low on confidence then you deserve whatever comes your way. Where is our next point going to come from??? <diva> <scratch>

McClaren and Carver were equally bad. But that's like saying I'm willing to give up my left leg as much as my right.

Edit: And just be glad you didn't have to choke down 40 matches of Carver in charge like those of us who support Toronto FC had to in 08-09.

Bruce bemoaning the penalty and the fact Billy Sharp wasn't sent off.

I'd say that under Bruce, we're in the mix of three worst teams but if Bruce were to be fired and we played on the front foot then we'd be mid table.

We have good enough players to give teams a game and give ourselves a chance to win but under Bruce - we're set up to maybe nick a draw.

I mean hes sort of got a point but it's not what you should be saying against a side like them.

Should be beating them comfortably and we were woeful before Fraser was off.

I fully agree with this and want Bruce gone myself, but the problem is who comes in? He was what - twelve choice in the first place? It'd most likely be a Carver situation and someone in the backroom would have to step up. Neil Redfearn still knocking about? Saying that, Pearson is available again. I'd take him at the minute, at least the press conferences would be entertaining.
