  1. Well, it wasn’t through lack of effort! The boys worked tirelessly and, while I only listened to the commentary and watched the highlights, I refuse to be too down about it. Just wait ‘TIL Tuesday.
  2. As much as most of us would like a manager who would take us into the Premiership quickly, I would prefer him (or her, to be inclusive) to be at least honourable, open, loyal and honest. Naively, I thought Steve Bruce was such a man and he gave me no reason (until now) to think otherwise. He seemed grounded, passionate on the sidelines - where he appropriately hounded some of the lazier players to move their backsides which helped us put opponents under pressure and give us opportunities to score. He was open and honest in his pre and post match interviews. He quickly got the measure of many of the team. For example, he bought out the best in Liam Palmer (long may it continue) and, with Kieran Westwood back in the side, our defence tightened up considerably. Recent transfers seemed wise on the face of it e.g speedy winger to feed Rhodes the kind of chances he has shown he is so capable of taking. I guess Steve Bruce was influential here. Had Bruce joined a few months earlier I believe we would have made the playoffs last. Anyway, he’s now proven himself to be dishonest, disloyal - an utter disgrace of a human being and a first class pig, so he’s best consigned to the bin where he belongs. So, what qualities are you looking for in the new manager?
  3. Agreed, but I was thinking more about the match commentators.
  4. I thought he had a good game all things considered.
  5. I didn’t go tonight, but cringed when I listened to some of the commentary while watching on Sky;So biased towards Norwich. For much of the time we outplayed these ******* and I was so proud. Great moves on and off the ball, pretty solid defence and real innovation. Bruce has made one heck of a difference and has bought out the best in a number of the boys - Palmer and Boyd being good examples, and there are more. I love the way he hounds them up to push the defence, to the point where now many are doing that without being asked (still a few reservations about Lucas J). Forrestieri played a commanding role tonight too. I think we would have won had Westwood made it to the start, but Dawson did his best (still some way short however). I look forward to next season and hope we can make a bit more noise for the boys in that North Stand.
  6. Didn’t hutchinson learn anything when he played for Chelsea? Fair wee wees me off that, in my retirement I struggle to decide whether to eat well or keep warm ,and yet that these cookers, take the wee wee out of their supporters. tail tugging tuggers.

  8. Good 3 points, but pretty ugly to watch beyond a couple of moments of inspiration. The crowd loves an attacking Wednesday as you heard today. Please, please can we put more up front and give them chances to stuff the opposition.
  9. I don’t think Morgan Fox is a great player, but he continues to be selected by the management team, so he must be pretty persuasive in training. I really felt for him today - booing is bang out of order and, although I’m no fan, he put in a fair shift. Getting behind the lad would be the right Wednesday thing to do;give him a bit of confidence and he may come good. And let’s face it, his was a far better effort than donkey Dave’s!
  10. Dear Santa It seems that a great opportunity for Jo’s has just opened up across the Pennines......and there is a Portuguese manager who could replace him.
  11. The lads must feel pretty uninspired as the other managers bounce up and down; yes, sometimes rather unhelpful lay, but they’re showing their passion and commitment.
  12. But I’ll try and make it smaller - sorry
  13. Not everything can be described in 4 letters.
  14. So, what news of Hutchinson, Westwood and Hooper? Has this man lost the plot or what? Leaving Fox and Nihu on all match, and leaving Fletcher on the bench when it was clear that only Joao was making a difference up front and that Fox was making no contribution again, beggars belief. Can he really not see what the rest of us can? He sits on his arse throughout the match which must really inspire the poor buggers on the field, and demonstrates a lack of passion and empathy. He then puts more effort into making gestures to the complaining fans than managing his ‘team’’. Absolutely disgraceful. Please Mr Chanseri get a new manager to lift us to above mid table and give us a chance to get to the play offs next season. Give Bannon, Reach, Hooper, Lees, Lee, Joao, Forrestieri and the other stalwarts, reason to want to stay with us. You may have a very expensive group of ‘yes men’ (including women) on your management team, but you really need to recruit some folk who have the passion and honesty to tell you the truth. You promised us entertaining football, but that’s the last thing it is. If you stayed over on a Sunday, you’d see more passion and effort in a Sunday league side who had been on the wee wee the night before. And yes, it’s not all your fault - please wake up you overpaid, so-called ‘professionals’ who live off the sweat we all put in for 40++ hours a week to pay for you!
  15. Agree about the attacking, but the first clean sheet is just a bit encouraging surely....
