... am I wrong to think that we should be strong in this area? (EVEN ADEQUATE OR MEDIOCRE WOULD BE NICE!) I've genuinely never thought Bruce should go but after the last two matches, I can''t believe how defensively poor we are and if Bruce cannot get this right, I seriously worry about his credentials as a manager. I don't care if Turner, Bramble are out etc. there's plenty of others that should be able to do the job - the amount of times recently we've had more defenders in the box than opposition attackers, not marking anyone and giving goals away is ridiculous. If Bruce cannot get this right, I seriously worry about his credentials as a manager. FFS! HE'S ESSENTIALLY A PROFESSIONAL DEFENDER AND WE ARE SHIT IN WHAT SHOULD BE HIS STRONGEST AREA!!
