Before Arsenal Steve Bruce basically blamed his squad and said he would finally do things his way.

Weird thing for a manager to say? Absolutely.

Even weirder given he has been there 18 months.

Is he trying to say the players have been dictating to him for 18 months? Weird Steve very weird.

Jamie Redknapp thinks Lampard deserves more time ( Jamie is Lampards bloody cousin) . As if pundits arent biased enough towards Frank Sky are now letting his family do analysis.

Be his Aunt Sandra Redknapp on next week.

Just posted re Mateta on the daily thread, it’s an 18 month loan with an option to buy. Good business.

He's a clown. Were told we were deluded for not wanting him. Then we were told the football is identical to Benitez. Now we're told that the gloves are off.

Tell you what, if that performance against Arsenal is 'gloves off' Bruceball, I think I'd prefer him to put them back on. Losing to a team that will likely go down as the worst in PL history with a gutless whimper wasn't the final straw, it was the hale bay dumped on top of the already broken camel.

He is a dinosaur manager whose ideas went out of date a decade ago but is protected by his mates in the media from his years on the managerial merry-go-round. .

It isnt even like you dont have some decent players.

Wilson, Fraser, Almiron, seems like a decent front 3? Lots of pace.

Still amazed he got the job, failed to get the most expensive side in Championship history promoted (Villa) and then gets a Premier league job? Weird.

From memory his Villa side were negative as well despite all the money spent, like watching paint dry.

We've got a really good pair of 'keepers too. And the same personnel in the defence that had us top half in terms of goals conceded etc. We should be a counter attack side based on a solid, organised defence with pace on the counter from Wildon, Almiron, ASM, Fraser. But we're so easy to play through (as you saw last time), Shelvey is a waste of a shirt which means the other midfielder has to do the work of two men. Honestly, never seen us play as bad as this in over 30yrs.

Nobody in the PL would have given him a job, nobody.

His mates in the media can do one as well, some even having the cheek to blame it on the fans. We're not even in the f**king ground, how can we be to blame? Tell you what, if we were in the ground Bruce would realise it's not just 'keyboard warriors' that want him gone.

I’m sure not many of us would have Burnley chalked down to be the team to finally end Liverpool’s long undefeated home record.

With Liverpool struggling & today's news of injuries to De Bruyne & Vardy, has this left the door open for one of the poorest Manure teams to go on & win the Premier League :(

From a Leeds perspective Vardy will miss the Leeds game

Wolves are a dreadful team to watch.

The Mendes stuff is dodgy as hell.

Nuno is the Portuguese Big Sam.

But this is class from him

Long way to go yet although I suspected they would struggle a bit without Kane hence my 1-1 prediction
