They're unfit. They were unfit this time last year.

I know we have a team full of older players but even the likes of Hourihane and Bacuna before he left who should be in peak physical condition were a yard off the pace in the middle of the pitch

First Team Regular
10001001002525
Its hard on the spirit thats for sure. We have strikers who cant score, midfielders who cant create and a defence that looks shaky. (Still say we sold our best defender) only the goalkeeper is performing on a regular basis. If Bruce does not go he must get rid of his coaching staff because we still have no proper shape or game plan.

It does make me laugh that every time Agbonlahor comes on as a sub etc for just a couple of minutes someone on here always votes him MOTM...I wonder who that could be

For bringing back Agbonlahor into the first team and bigging him up all the time Bruce shows a flawed lack of judgment that fully deserves for him to receive his P45 alone and regardless of any of the other countless mistakes.

That was awful to watch on Saturday, and agree with Merlin128777 our forwards don't look like scoring, players seem reluctant to shoot when around the edge of the opposition area. How many times under Bruce have we scored more than 1 goal in a league since he came in last October very few and how many times more than 2 goals in a game?

Negative passing the ball square or backwards to the keeper. i for one would like to see us on the front foot more at both home and away. Play to players strengths. Bruce knew the ones that had been away on international duties if they look tired don't play them. He sees them in training and he picks the team. No passion no idea not good enough.

Tired ! Playing on these billiard table pitches all the year round. Pathetic.
Try Billesley Common Rec on a Sunday morning , on a bog of a pitch , gale force winds and paying for the previlage, in shirts with holes in.

All this after a night at the Whiskey a Go Go club in Brum with the Spencer Davis Group playing till the last person left !

Barry Hole, Brian Godfrey, Frankie Carrodus, Dennis Mortimer, Alex Cropley, Pat McMahon, David Platt, Ian Taylor and on and on ... did they get tired?
Honestly his aftermatch comments, his demeanour, his persona .... for Gods sake Dr X - please pull the trigger.

May be an old shed and a rough-mown field would be better! Seriously, it may have been like that but the new regime seems to have sorted it. Look at what the youngsters are producing. Hourihane suddenly looking good when he's played in the right position, and reverting when he's not. Goalkeeper coach is certainly doing his job.

My guess is that the coaches get them training on certain set routines but they don't know what Brucie will come up with next so when they go out on the field they're having to make it up as they go along. And I think they're getting fed up.

All roads lead to Steve Bruce Avenue .... which is increasingly looking like a cul-de-sac
