Working through all the threads and views about yesterday. I think the biggest scandle is that Bruce has spent all that money and put out a makeshift team . How other can you explain the following: A goalkeeper who i am sure bruce does not think is ready to play at this level week in week out. A centre half who on the basis of previous decsions is fifth choice and he would sell tomorow if he could. Player of the season last year at left back playing right back, where Bruce never rated him. A right sided mid fielder who could not hold down a regular position when there was enough players fit last season, and a position clearly intended for Larson. A left sided midfielder who had to keep tracking back to the half way line he is so one footed. Two central midfieders who are to similar in style. when we needed one to be hitting the box with runs and be able to take a chance when it arrived. Probably why we bought Gardiner? A centre forward who because of his attitude is carrying more timber than B&Q, but none of the new buys are equiped to replace him. Compare that to newcastle's game plan and it was obvious we hed been out thought. Their manager won the game ours lost it. This time last season Henderson, Bent, Mensah, Malbrangue would all have got in that team before the players who did. Have we improved Mr Bruce?
