I hate Bruce but the result would have been the same if Jones was in the dug out. A new manager is going to need to time to sort this mess out.

 

It had nowt to do with the new owners.

 

Yup.

A new manager might not start the 2 centre halves we were starting 5 years ago in a lower league and instead start our best 2. He might play an actual LB at LB and not play Joelinton week in week out. Just a small start.

Problem is when your not a good team you need 3 things, a game plan, a high work rate to pressure the ball and above all the team needs to be FIT, we have non of those 3 traits sadly and it will take time to install that mentality

Someones got to start somewhere man and the weeks international break was a perfect time, if thats Jones, whoever, just make a fucking statement.

 

The fat fuck has got to 1000 miserable games to the detriment of the nufc.

Can only imagine they were waiting for the arrival of the Don, Al Rumayyan or whatever he's called. Doesn't look the type who would have much trouble giving Bruce his marching orders. 

You can say that again. Looks the sort of bloke who would insist on being the man to pull the trigger. [emoji38]

 Bruce on 5Live  - 'As a team, we haven't been good enough. We've tried to change it and play more on the front foot' (!)

 

When asked about where the problems lie 'I'm not going to blame the team (2mins after he did) - many of them have been here for years and are now getting on'.

To me in the second half it looked like the players totally downed any limited tools they had. It was horrendous the lack of actual effort in the second half.

 

2nd half was criminal - no effort and intensity - at all. Merely going through motions.

Absolutely! They still should have tried to impress their new bosses, despite Bruce being as useful as tits on a fish!

Maybe it was a respect thing, totally undeserved mind, but give him the 1000 and send him packing. Avoid's being seen as a villain by his pundit chums for sacking him at 999.

I respect your stance, but I disagree. 

 

It's very clear he has tuned Jones out since jones started getting all the credit for our upturn in fortunes last season.

 

Also, if Jones had taken this match he would have been on the side-line constantly directing the team, and would have also done so during the break in play.

 

Think Jones has just left Bruce to it and can't be arsed anymore.

What the fuck has he meant by this? That they're old and slow or something? That's you, you fucking cunt. :lol:  Bruce is such a fucking boomer, man.

I agree it was disgusting by the players in front of a sell out crowd. Nearly every player needs to be moved on and replaced quickly and that is a massive job for the consortium. We knew this though to be fair.

They were facing a team with a plan and a lot of ability with the ball. So difficult to just go out them and beat a team like Spurs on desire alone.

 

You can see we kind of started that way , and Spurs adjusted and took control of the game, ad there was no direction for our lot from the sideline, and they just got destroyed.
