Thread: OK the playoffs FFS!

    OK the playoffs FFS!

    Can we all just calm down and plan for the playoffs? I'm sick of "last chance to make 2nd place" and its affecting the players also. Today should have put an end to that so lets just take on Cardiff with a more laid back approach. Having said that I dread what this squad would do in the Premiership if we get there, or indeed this manager. He doesn't seem to have noticed that we were awful at times in the Reading game - if they hadn't been the worst team to visit VP this season then we would never have got our 3-0 training session workout. But today the same approach was on view, outplayed in the first 30 minutes by simple passes through midfield (have we got one?), every ball in the box won by them (have we actually won a ball in the box ever), the 4-1-4-1 as painful to watch as ever. And then the classic Brucey when we go behind - throw on as many forwards as possible but take away the width to supply them. And finally a question - just what exactly is Grabban for?

    No Midfield - no football

    If there were 40 games left you would never catch Wolves, you have no midfield and everything fell for you in the Wolves game. Bruce has failed, not many managers could have done worse with what you've spent. For Villa , Leeds and Deby to complain about Wolves is pathetic. Wolves have taken a chance on young unproven talent paying wages a lot less than Villa, Bruce, Warnock ( and I do like him ) are past it and can be partly blamed why England will never win anything.

    Who mentioned catching Wolves?? But I'd back us over another 40 games.

    I'm happy to make the playoffs just a shame we've hit a form slump. A bit like Wolves, recently. We'll bounce back at the right time.
