Tony Xia - September will be crucial for us.

Wolves are doing pretty well, but we need to go into the next three matches with the confidence that we can go and win them. OK it might not work out like that, but to me there's a huge difference in going into, say, the Wolves matches with the confidence and tactics to match or even beat them, and going in in defensive mode hoping to nick a goal from somewhere. Will be interesting to see how we're set up.

Yep. I really hate the mass hysteria when we lose. :39:

Totally agree .
We need to stick with Bruce and back him to the hilt for the next 2 or 3 years minimum , quite possibly longer . He is a great fit for this club , a better version of MON if you will .

Will SB come out with the lads were tired again, I should have noticed & they think they are playing international football. God I hope not.

As always looking on the positive side. Poor old Brucie getting stick for something he hasn't even said yet.

Did you actually read the post? It is something he has already said, after the last international break. I can't see anywhere in that post that can be construed as giving him stick.

Yes i did read it and as you correctly say he has already said it about a month ago!. Lord knows why it needs bringing up 2 weeks before our next game. Its a dig at Bruce because you dont like him and always look to have a pop.

Wasn't that actually in relation to Keinan Davis more than the side itself?

Perfectly legit to express a concern that Bruce might continue a theme he's employed in the past.

Absolutely.

Just like it's perfectly legit for me to express an opinion that I think it's a bit random that someone suggests that Bruce is going to say something in two weeks time based on what he said 4 weeks ago, if it was meant the way they think.
(And like Mike says what Bruce said about the international break was not interpreted by some as a general thing but about individual players).

And also it's perfectly legit for me to think that based on what some keep as the theme of their posts that they will never accept Bruce and are waiting for the next draw or loss to restart the often mentioned 'mass hysteria'.

Less "never accept Bruce" and more not signing up 100% to the "Bruce is the saviour" mantra. I've always hoped that Bruce would succeed. I've had good cause to question that. I'm glad that we've seem to have struck a good spell and hope that it continues at the reasonably high level we need. But I'm to be less than honest if I didn't admit that past concerns haven't entirely been laid to rest. Yet. I hope they will be.

The Wolves match could go either way. I hope Bruce approaches it with the same positivity that we've seen over the last 4 games. Given that, I'd accept a loss should it end up as a loss.

We are going to lose games at some point whether you accept them or not. It's football.

We're on the right track that's what matters.

Onwards and upwards
