Steve Bruce interviewed and once again says he is determined to put an end to the blight of not putting chances away.
He was pleased with the response after the woeful draw v Brentford but is frustrated at not being able to put the ball in the onion bag.
He says Traore tackle was ‘stupid and dangerous` but laments the red card given to Lansbury which he`s right, should have been a yellow. It was ‘taking one for the team` yellow in my humble.
He adds that we have the makings of a very good team and that we will be ‘there or there abouts`.
We should be already.
He then talks about ‘mass hysteria`. Steve, you`ve got to stop these digs that implies everyone else is wrong being worried.
It isn`t mass hysteria, it was a poor poor effort from you and the team last season and this season we have 7 points from a possible 21. That is poor. We are 18th, that is pathetic. And the manager still doesn`t know his best formation, best team or quite how to send us out on match day, that`s frankly embarrassing. And this is from someone who likes Steve Bruce and so wants it to work out. A kid up front, holding the ball up for………. oh damn, no one. It`s a bit amateur isn`t it?
As Bruce says, HOPEFULLY things will change and lets hope it is Saturday.
I have to be fair and say I don`t know how some of our chances were missed last night and the misses aren`t his fault.
