What did Bruce do? He puts our best midfielder to left back to replace a midfielder. He takes off the best dead ball player we have thus losing another scoring opportunity. He puts on 2 young kids with no-one to cross the ball to them.
Captain cattermole then went into headless chicken mode leaving huge gaps for them to pass the ball into and keep it.
Bruce has to be replaced. He hasn't been in charge for 2 games as some are trying to suggest as the reason why not. Mistakes of last season still there. Pre season we could only score against minor opposition and that should have been a warning.
Yes and this is what he said in his post match email.......
"We huffed and puffed after they scored, which is obviously a frustration. We went down to ten men and didnít really get back to the flowing football that we had in the first half."
...so why did he not bring on David Vaughan
as he has shown pre season that he can keep the ball moving in midfield ?
