Bruce's Comments on Radio Sheffield

Recommended Posts

Not seen anyone mention it yet but found it quite eye opening when he talked of the strange methods used by our two previous 'foreign' managers.
Said it was going to take some serious time to turn things around and the players have been working hard to adust to his methods.

 

Seems like the players have been conditioned into a certain way of playing and it's taking a while to train it out of them.
I wonder what it is Jos and Carlos were doing that has bamboozled Steve so much?

Quick passing to feet?

 

Sideways and back again?

 

Keeping it on the floor?

I would think it's the negative, sideways and backwards mentality. No urgency with throws and feekicks.

CC ran an A and B team.

 

Jos was here with a mission of youth + add ons (his) only we got embargoed unexpectedly.  Also no mushrooms.

Probably means all the passing backwards, killing time in games to make it boring, not engaging in any ‘battling’ etc.

Confident that Bruce will sort it long term given time. He will make mistakes but i feel we will move forwards under his management.

I think play offs are just out of reach this year but got high hopes for next with bruce in charge.

Especially with Mo Diame out of contract at Newcastle in summer.

Love this man. He will get us competing at the right end again. Just wish we’d had him 3 years ago. 

Was 6th and 4th not the "right end"

Looking back I think Jos did like mushrooms but only those on offer in Holland

Done so much in a very short space of time, imagine a full pre-season just hope he has the funds to make the changes we need!

Probably the tactic to contain the opposition and try and nick a goal; and then once in front try to hit them on the break. 

 

Where as the English style is to go hell for leather and get ahead from the kick off.

Well, we are 6 points off the playoffs now with 11 games to play albeit 6th and 7th have a game in hand. All teams apart from top 2 I'd like to think are beatable. So who knows if the good work carries on?
