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.

 

Unorganized mess, he's completely undone anything Rafa had instilled in them. Well done, Bruce. :slowclap:

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 think that was definitely a factor. Maybe they would have sacked him immediately if they had someone lined up, but probably thought it wasn't worth the negative press only to put Jones in charge. Who would probably have lost as well tbf.

What?! These people are mentally ill man.

Indeed. This idea of bringing in managers with experience in relegation fights is so fatally flawed, not least because of the fucking obvious fact that they have experience with relegation fights because they are generally dog shit at their jobs. Punditry requires the least qualifications of any job. My old VP's at Cypress Semiconductor with their "don't reinvent the wheel" horse shit were Kierkegaard compared to these platitudinous fuckwits.

He's talking about the defending being an issue like it isn't his fucking responsibility, and blames the struggles to trying to be on the front-foot.

 

Yes, because every team that goes forward cannot defend. This man is a con artist. This is criminal.

 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'.

 

 

 

He's the fucker who keeps giving them new contacts!

Didn’t we have the 6th best defensive record in the league under Rafa ?

 

We did and the media made out we redefined "parking the bus" which was actually a team acutely aware of position and quite decent on the counter. Now, we're just fucking hopeless both ends of the pitch.

It's so sickening man. Really hope we don't have to put up with another British manager again. Need a break from this nonsense.

Keiron Dyer says it's a fantastic interview. Lord have mercy. These people are ridiculous.

 

Oh Lord ... cancel Ginola man. He says this is the most you can get out of this squad regardless of manager.

Yup, unfair on Jones as well, perhaps they'd like to keep him on post Bruce as he's definitely a solid coach and can provide some institutional knowledge, bridge the player relationships when the new manager or DoF are appointed. Which, frankly, I'd be in support of.

Managers who are 'Experienced in a Relegation Battle' have generally been so shit at being a manager thats all they achieve, that the sum of their season, thats their playground. They're 100% going to lose that battle at some point.
