He's lost whatever his record is supposed to be based on. His record at Sunderland is the most relevant as it's exactly the same as with us - no pattern or style of play, not knowing his best 11, trial and error formations, buying players and not using them and definitely not improving them.

It took them 18 months to finally get rid of him, god help us if it takes that long.

If he doesn't get a result against Barnsley he can do one.

Good score line against Barnsley so far but still a question mark over the performance from me.. not enough possession and too much whacking it long to Davis

No mate. This is the Bruce formula. Serve up dross for a few weeks and then pull out a result to save his job and so on .. Still, he's a nice enough bloke so I hope he enjoys his evening. It's not personal against the man.

I would love us to kick on. I would like Bruce to be smiling at the end of the season having achieved promotion. Promotion is what it's all about.

I fear if we don't go up this year then 3 seasons in this league will turn to 5 and then we are part of the furniture. We become a Leeds. Anyway, we are 5 points off 5th so maybe Bruce can get us going now but I have my doubts.

I'll believe it's not a false dawn when we string together enough good results to take us into the top 6, and stay there. We've been through this before. We need good results over the remainder of this month; to me that means we ought to win all three matches, although a draw for one might be just about OK. But it also means we need to get good results in a more difficult October.

Bottom line; today shows that we do have the players to compete seriously in this league. The question is, will we? Today's win was built on the performance of Adomah aided by Davis and Kodjia. We need more performances at that level. Over to you, Steve.

Bottom line for me, is who do you replace Bruce with if he went? Looking at the list above leaves me cold. Big Sam is out of the same ''dinosaur'' mould as Bruce. The poll above says it all. Bruce 45. Big Sam 46.

The nearest to those 2 is Dean Smith on 30. We stick. We aren't in the prem. We can't compete for managers like we would maybe have done once. We have been through so many managers in the past few years. We can't compete for players of Prem Standard. There isn't too many J.T available and in his case it's a one year contract cos of age and because he didn't want to play in the prem again against his old team.

We need a manager who can do what Bruce has, with a proven track record and that's get us back up to The Prem. There is no other manager on that list with the proven track record Bruce has. We stick. Big Sam is out of a similar mould to Bruce so why so many want him I don't know.

Change for change sake, I dont get

He did his trick again, head well and truly on the block and takes the shackles off. Will he revert to type? After we went 3-0 up I thought we were crap, Adomah should have made it 4. Let's see if SB can change his spots - I have my doubts.

We win 3-0 and yet we still have the word 'crap' related to the performance.....ok it hasn't been very a very pretty start to the season and today wasn't quite like Barcelona but..... we won.....For some, we appear to be crap when we win, crap when we draw, crap when we lose........why not try to take a positive from the game 67, I'm sure you could find a small one if you look hard enough....the numbers 0 and 3 really should help you to smile and enjoy your Sunday. It may not happen again for a few more years so best try to and enjoy the moment eh....?!
