He's just another Pardew for me.  Didn't like the fucker before he came here, didn't like him when he was here, and I'll continue disliking him after he's left.   Just another snidey snake i

Steve Bruce:

"We gave the ball away cheaply on both occasions and Leicester punished us.

"The one thing you don't want to do when you are having arguably your best spell after half-time is give the ball away. It's something we have to improve on.

"I didn't think we deserved to lose the game but we have been punished and caught on the counter-attack. It's what we want to do but we keep getting caught the other way."

On Andy Carroll:

"Great finish, yeah. Andy certainly brought us to life. We went a bit more direct to him. He has given me food for thought. It's nice to see him fit and well. We just lacked that bit of quality in the final third.

"I have to think even though we only took one point, it was always going to be tough and thankfully we are getting a few back from the illnesses.

"I can't fault the players' efforts. I didn't think we deserved to lose the game but we have been punished and caught on the counter-attack. It's what we want to do but we keep getting caught the other way.

"You have to stay with it, there's a long, long way to go but if they [the players] keep showing the attitude they have been doing, they will be fine."

On transfers:

"If there are one or two out there in the loan system then we will try. I can't see there being much transfer activity in January if I'm being brutally honest and that will be the same for us probably.

"We need to recover and it gives them another two or three days for those struggling with illness and look forward to the next batch of games that are coming up."


On Ryder:

 

”What was that soft lad? Eeee man, ah tell you what, you want to gan oootside? Cos Ah tell you what, if we do my crisp packets won’t be the only thing getting crumpled the night.... aye that’s right, off you pop.... he’s fucking relentless man... No bird I won’t lay off..... I’m not arsed if he’s left in a huff.... Kinnear was spot on about you, spot on.”

It'll be interesting to see if there is actually any pressure on him after the Sheffield game.  We look likely to crash out of the cup at the first hurdle and then give the Blades their first win of the season by next Tuesday night.  Should that happen, for any sane person his position would have to finally become untenable.  But Mike Ashley is the man who appointed Bruce despite everyone involved with the club knowing it made no sense at all so it's certainly not a foregone conclusion that he'd be under any pressure let alone get the boot.

:lol: I absolutely fucking hated when Allardyce was NUFC manager. What an absolute monster arsehole the bloke is. just fucking unbearable. Still think it says a lot about the mackems that they love him. 

I'm probably hating Bruce now more than Fat Sham.  I don't know if that partially because I can't get to the games now (or even the pub to get pissed watching them) but we are a totally joyless experience now.  Admittedly we were then too but at that point you could still see the possibility of a way forward.

Out of the cups, relatively safe in the league, not expecting any January transfer activity. 
 

Ashley’s man doing the job he was brought in to do. 

If we lose to Sheffield we won't be that safe in the league though and we'll be on a hell of a downward trajectory.

Good post.It won’t be the defeat that will put Fat Heed under pressure alone.If some of the teams below pick up 3 points then that will give Ashley something to think about.

That and the compilation of his groaning  and grunting as he stood up and sat down have comfortably been the highlights of his time here

Derby 1.0 was a stinker mind. So glad there's no fans there as I'd very likely have been there.

It’s about as bad as I can remember, but the worst of Ashley’s reign? Not sure - Allardyce, McClaren, Carver, Kinnear. The competition is fierce 

 

None of those had a full season under Ashley. McLaren had the most with 28 games in charge. Bruce has already had more than 50.
