We should aim to have 0% possession and we might actually score a few
Agreed, he's done nowt really. Should have pulled out the stops for Bowen, would have rounded out our attacking midfield three nicely and had our team looking a lot more of a goal threat (which is sorely needed).
This. Game was over and done with by the 1st half. Bruce blew his chance tbh.. this was our ''cup'' final and we came out in a ultra defensive 9-1-1 formation which stunted us and we could rarely get out of our own half. Terrible negative tactics/formation. Why did we have to wait to go 0-1 down to then change it to a more forward thinking and relatively positive 4-3-3 formation which in turn put pressure on City and we nearly scored.. but I guess that's the difference between a top quality striker and a average one, moments like that are game changers if Gayle scored we could have been 1-1 with momentum drifting our way and we could have even nicked a win instead they go up the field and score which ends the game for us. Should have kept Miggy on and brought on Muto to give him a chance.Slim999 wrote: ↑Sun Jun 28, 2020 9:59 pmIf Bruce wanted to embellish his chances of being manager after the takeover then he has just f***ed it.
Dreadful 1st half tactics- literally the worst half match on our part I have EVER WITNESSED.
In 2nd half why take of Almiron ??
Is he saving him for the league- which Is done and dusted.
That's the last chance if success for Bruce - he f***ed it and should now be replaced if we have new owners with money to spend .
Embarrassed by that performance .
This us supposed to be entertainment-
.... Id rather stick drawing pins in my eyeballs than sit through that s**** again
Is criticism of Joelinton really that over the top? . He cost £40m and has scored four goals, two of which came against Rochdale and Oxford. He really is hopeless, although he has improved slightly (only very slightly) since the season resumed.Don Sholeone wrote: ↑Mon Jun 29, 2020 10:33 amAt least Gayles miss gave Joelinton the weekend off from over the top criticism.
On a more serious note I think he looked really good again when he came on yesterday, seemed to work hard and tried to make positive things happen, made room for himself and others but never got the right pass, one occasion I remember was him dribbling out from the back passing a couple city players and taking all the pressure off, lays the ball off and makes a bursting run, then one of the Longstaffs just played the ball back to the defence again putting man city back on our 16yd box.
Hopefully he can keep it up for the rest of the league games.
It was the 9-1-1 tactics completely to blameColly wrote: ↑Mon Jun 29, 2020 8:21 amI don't think anyone (other than forced defensive clearances) gave the ball away more than ASM in the first half. I know it's difficult under the circumstances, but if you're playing like that you need your better players to be spot on and we didn't have that yesterday.
