Excellent result. Goals at the weekend and goals galore tonight and not a gabby in sight. I may be wearing a tin foil hat here but all this attacking football doesn't feel very Bruce like. I wonder if he got his ass kicked by the powers that be after the reading result?

Excellent result, could have been more than 4 as well. I was a bit worried with so many 2nd string players thrown in they may be a bit rusty and get turned over. Hope the inclusion of Bree & De Laet doesn't mean Mutton gets back in for Friday. I do wonder with some if they will ever give Bruce any credit, 2 wins and 8 goals and there are still reasons to try and criticise.

Two games and 4 goals all without Bruce's favourite player. I think this proves that Flabby is finished and we don't need him even when we play Small Heath. Flabby should also realise now his chances of getting in the team are slim so no doubt he will do a NZogbia and milk the last 12 months of his contract as I cannot see anyone else wanting him. As I have said previously stick with the kids SB you may be pleasantly surprised.

Agree with all comments, these youngsters are hungry and will not let us down, Gabby should not even make the subs bench with these players now begining to shine. The real acid test now comes on Friday at Bristol, need to get another win before the break, would also like to see a few clean sheets appear and hope this will happen as the back line gels, big question from Bruce who does he play at right back? and who leads the attack ?

Loving this. I sit by the bench and told Bruce 'we like this Brucie' and fair play, he came over for a quick chat! lol I would take this forward moving sort of play win, lose or draw.
