  • Nothing to play for, but being the man city of the championship surely we should be whipping teams. Not convinced with Bruce, but stability is key. Next year’s gamble is all about if Bruce is the man or not, cause the team has the quality. Surely Hogan sh

  • Sorry SB, but you had a very bad day today. This was the perfect opportunity to play some of the youngsters but you chose not to. None in the team and none on the bench. THREE defenders on the bench plus one defensive midfielder !! Why have both Richards

  • I’ve tried to remain positive most of this season but for the life of me I cannot see any progress, not when we are winning, losing or drawing. NO shape, little to no passion, scrappy play, we give the ball away far too cheaply, some don’t then track bac

  • Winning ugly, winning scrappy plastered over the cracks, but now the wheels have fallen off the wagon, so it can now come out into the open. We are still poor, midfield is still weak and disorganised. Something massive has got to happen in the summer or

  • Disappointing obviously. Too slow and pedestrian in midfield. You take one player out of a previously solid defence and we make mistakes galore. All three goals could be attributed to either Amavi or Bacuna who were playing left back at the time. Hogan an

  • Just keep waiting to see some progression in our style and system but even when winning it is difficulrt to see any real pattern or tactical ideas.

  • Think we have had our eyes opened this season to how far away we are from being good enough to get out of here.do we honestly think this team can achieve that? massive improvement needed,that was our full strength side today. Start talking premier league

  • Clearly not great but I think we have to stick with Bruce this season and the vast majority of next even if it’s going badly: he’s been promoted from this league multiple times, we have players who’ve been promoted from this league or were doing well in i

  • Manager merry go round hasn’t worked and as you say he has experience. I am worried at the total lack of progress though. Be interesting how patient Xia is won’t it?

  • Sorry but I dont get all the doom and gloom after 1 defeat. You do not go on a run like we’ve just had if you are such a poor team. We conceded 1 goal in 8 before Burton, winning 7 of those games. We may not be pleasing on the eye, but it has been effecti

  • Bruce intimated before this game that because we had 2 games in 2 days that he would rotate the squad saw no evidence in today’s team selection. Very disappointed.

  • 1. This team did have something to play for and that was to stamp their intimidation onto next season and show the rest of the league we will be the team to beat… meh

  • 2. For all those who were saying ‘results all that matter’ recently and getting on to us that were still talking about how we played this is why. Playing awful and having a good striker maybe enough some of the time but if you want to do a Newcastle or Br

  • Looking at the wai Ali has progressed at Spurs I look at how our ‘two’ stars who came up through the ranks have done, Grealish and Gardner … both great coming through the ranks but both have it the buffers in the 1st team .. show glimpses and all too in

  • I agree with you Big Dubs and this has been a concern all season. In my opinion the basic problem is still in midfield and/or the system(s) we play to. This cannot just be resolved overnight and SB needs time BUT, Mr Fear’s comment is spot on – unfortunat

  • Terrible yesterday but move on. Kudos to the senior management, if what I hear is true. We were the only Championship team to play on Saturday because Aston Parrish Church asked us not to play on Good Friday as this is such an important day in the Christi

  • Please teapot… don’t tell me that the local religious nutters should tell us when we should play football and that it’s a good result! What’s next … no playing on the sabath or food service during Ramadan?
