We've played some of our best football against the big teams under Bruce. We've gone to places like White Heart Lane, Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge and taken them on. We never did that under Reid or any other manager in recent memory. Yet, under Bruce, time and time again we under-perform and under-achieve. It's this paradox that I find so frustrating. We've seen glimses of real quality, only to have our hopes dashed. I really thought he might come good but I am starting to doubt it. There you go. Nowt new. Just my internal dialogue.
