Well as I said before the game, it was a win win situation for Bruce, he goes 4 4 2 we get beat he can blame the system.
He stays 4 5 1 we get beat, he can say exactly what you have.
We lost that game in the middle of the park today by not retaining possession, something that should not be an issue in a 5 man against 4 man midfield.
We gave the ball away very cheaply especially when trying to find Bent, I'm not going to blame the system, the players were shite and would've probably been whatever the formation.
