He's regressed not just as a player for us, but as a captain also imo. Doesn't seem anywhere as front and centre or much of a leader as he was under Benitez.

 

:thup: Was shocked to see a post of mine on the past page. Says it all we've only moved on one page in a year.

 

Seems he took his chance at being the 'voice' under Rafa and fair play to him. Because if today was anything to go by he's been living off it for a while.

Rafa is a club manager and he turned Lascelles in to a club player. Just goes to show how shallow Bruce's thinking is that players who used to embrace so much now offer so little.

Was going to say similar. Lascelles was confident that he had Rafa's backing. I'm not even sure he'd be grateful for Bruce's.

hayden hasnt been happy with the system or where he's been asked to play.

he was pissed off at bruce when the fat cunt called him out for letting ronaldo in too easily for his second.

 

may have voiced his concnerns and jamal then sticking up for bruce.

or he was blaming the defence for being so shite.

I think we have ok centrebacks and I think Jamaal Lascelles is an ok centreback who gives us something more in terms of leadership. I think Varane/Ramos would struggle in our setup. You have a gung-ho left winger playing left back charging around and doing random stuff all season. And you have absolutely no protection from the midfield. The Ndombele goal is a classic Bruces NUFC goal. One simple pass lets him through to charge in on the centreback and he does a good finish.

 

The lack of cohesion even when we play a midfield 3 is staggering, often you see Longstaff/Hayden pressing up to the midfield circle whilst Willock for example is in no-mans land. 1 simple pass and the midfield is cut through, happens every single game. I've also noticed for years how if the opposition winger does a cutback to a midfielder to shoot like the Bruno Fernandes Goal, we are never ready for it and he only gets charged down if we are lucky to have someone standing close by.

 

We also have a coach who consistently refuses to play Schar who is the only player with ability to play it out from the back. We should have kept Lejeune and had at least one of those two in the first 11, but Bruce is just clueless, if we were going to let a centreback go I'd have gone with Clark.

 

Anyway the Schar/Lascelles/Fernandez/Clark centreback stable are more than adequate in a lower premier league team, and I hope we don't focus too much on recruitment in this area in January. As i feel getting a proper midfield, left back and another striker for when Wilson is injured should be the priorities.

 

It just really pisses me off when the media just blames the "championship back 4" whenever we let in shit goals. The problem is so much deeper and it can be solved with a good management team that understands football. Both Schar and Lascelles were rumored to be going for 20m plus when we had a proper manager coaching and managing these players.

Hayden letting rip on the inept tactics of Bruce on Sunday with Lascelles sticking up for Bruce in terms of ‘lets stick together’ crap.


Lascelles will back his manager or club. A good trait in someone when things are going well, or it’s a club or manager to get behind (i.e Rafa) but not so helpful with dross like Bruce.

Even if we were still able to boast a trio of CBs with 1 of Fede/Lascelles/Clark with Schar and Lejeune we’d be fine. Always felt Lascelles looked his best with Lejeune playing next to him.

Farcical comment. He's proved he can easily play this level. 

 

Maybe a bit OTT, but unless he's protected by the whole team playing deep and centrally he's always looked uncomfortable in the PL imo.
