Bruce says we need to get the basics right A quote from the official site, off Bruce post-match: 'We certainly need to get the basics right. And the basics are in a game of football to not make any mistakes. They keep costing us. In the last few weeks we've conceded twice every time and left ourselves needing to score three goals. That's difficult to do in the Championship, so we need to get those basics right again. Hopefully then it will start to turn around'. Read more: Bruce Says 'We Need To Get The Basics Right!`

Some totally valid comments. Personally think @JackGrealish1 needs more quality around him, a proper run in the team and fans to support though. He's never been in a settled team, it's always crisis after crisis.— Vital Villa (@VitalVilla) December 28, 2017
