    Yokuslu - Please Give Me A Clue?

    Why cant the best player in our entire squad get in the starting eleven?

    Can anyone think of another manager in this division who wouldnt leap at the chance to have him playing in their team?

    Why do we constantly end up with managers who are too stupid or stubborn when it comes to things that the average fan can plainly see?

    The worst thing that happened to our club in recent seasons was Fat Sam calling it a day.

    His choices in Yokuslu and Diagne through his contacts almost made the difference, whatever the personal opinions on FS as a bloke he could pick a player and spot a fraud and weed them out.

    If we cant get Dyche or some bright up and coming new coach Id beg FS to return.

    Wed already be back up if wed kept him and backed him.

    F u c k I n g sick of Bruce and his post match platitudes and bull s h I t.

    The sooner him and his master the Gourlay Dance Band and the poisoned dwarf f u c k off the better.

    Im resolved not to return to watch any home matches until either Lai has gone or hes installed a manager who knows what hes doing.

    Certainly can't give you an answer to that question cause what do I know?
    But already three games in no win, totally dominating games, making chances, not taking them, are all the hall marks of last season.
    How much time can be afforded a manager who does not seem to have altered his views since been here?
    Seven points off top spot after three games does not bode well for his changing tactics anytime soon.

    Tbh, I felt that there have been some signs of positivity whether that be getting Okay back and recruiting Wallace or the rejuvenation of Diangana and O'Shea getting back to form but sadly, the improvement in performance and increased possession will count for nothing if we can't put the bloody ball in the back of the net . We desperately need a striker beside Grant and at very least Cleary needs to be given more opportunity until then.

    As for Okay not starting maybe it's all about easing him In a bit if not totally fit? Though, of course, he could start and then be subbed second half if needed

    In the meantime I totally understand the frustration with Bruce for still consistently playing Livermore/Reach/Phillips/Bartley whilst TGH not getting a look in. Of course some of them will always play because the squad is so thin but surely not at the expense of Okay or TGH. Yesterday's game also showed how many poor passes were played and thought Swift and Furlong particularly were poor.

    I am sure Livermore has a clause in his contract that states that he plays if fit. Why else would he keep being picked after mediocre performances?

    I realise that it's easy to knock the manager when victories aren't forthcoming but it does appear that no matter what, Livermore will be selected. He hasn't been disasterous but youth isn't on his side and he lacks that energy required to play in the role that he is selected for. He would be more of an asset coming off the bench. As for TGH, it's beyond comprehension why the lad isn't a regular in the side. Regarding, Yokuslu, surely he must be match fit by now.
    The striking option isn't Bruce's fault but something has to be done to rectify it. Bruce does seem completely stuck in his ways and has little vision to my mind. I don't think that Mowett leaving was the best move either although I realise we need to make money available for a striker.

    Because Bruce lacks the bottle to drop his captain!! Dont want to hear any bulls hit that Okay still being eased in - he started against Sheffield and played great - best player on the pitch at Blackburn when he came on. Twice the player of Livermore!!!

    Talking about fitness - Livermore seems slow and looks too chunky!! Get rid of the useless
    c unt and judging by the support at Blackburn most thought the same

    Furlong too a complete liability. Why not play TGH? To not even bring on an energetic kid when it was so hot and bring on Reach instead shows again the state of Bruces mind - jumbled!

    It is incomprehensible - does Bruce like losing games, dropping points and getting further adrift!? Flagellant!?

    Bruce is not a winning manager. He is a journeyman who has made a living out of playing the percentages. He has 1 point from a draw, after being all over the opposition (Watford) and rather than take a very small risk and go for the win, he brings on Reach. This does not bode well, when we are seven points behind the leaders after only three games. As Napoleon said: Give me lucky Generals. but you have to take calculated risks to win. If we lose 2 out of three going for a result, we would still be one point to the good if we won the one

    Exactly the point - the QPR keeper at Sunderland was sent up for a corner in the last minute of injury time when they were 2-1 down and scored a fantastic header.

    we had a corner in the last minute and Button was nearer to his goal line than the first Watford goal. We were losing like QPR 2-1 so why did Bruce not yell at Button to get the f uck into the Blackburn box?????

    A useless manager!!!!
