"LETS KEEP THE MOMENTUM GOING!" (Steve Bruce)
Wor beloved? manager/club spokesman 'Broken Nose Bruce' said that comments were completely untrue that new coach Graeme Jones will take ower the reigns if he iz sacked, and that he woz puttin the rumours "to bed", full stop!
Yet anothaa 'must win game' today, against a Sooothampton team who lost 9-0 to Moan U in midweek!
However! Bruce will probably play 5 at the back and hope for a breakaway goal or 2 to win the game!
He said he woz "pleased!" with wor performance on Tuesday?
PLEASED? to lose 2-1 at home to a very mediocre Cristill Palliss team. *Iz he takin the p*ss oot of us, in revenge for posts on social media and in the press??? (Thought he didnt read them, but he's aalways complaining aboot negative Twitter comments etc from fans!
But wot does he expect with dire performances recently? (apart from Evaatin, when new coach Graeme Jones bellowed instructions from the dugoot, while Bruce looked on furious that he had stolen his thunder!)
ONE win in THORTEEN games and THREE losses in succession at home, divvint give yoo confidence for this afternooon!
Its relegation form for certain and we can anly hope (and pray!)🙏 that Jones isn't banished to the stand, or the back row seats in the dugoot today!(or even his own bed, of course!)
BRUCE'S 'WHITE FLAG' EXCUSES PRE MATCH!
Shud we not win, then Bruce haz aalready got aall hiz ready made excuses in, in his Friday press conference, az he says that 4 to 5 defenders are unavailable!
Aalso in the press conference, he woz asked just who wud fill the 25th slot in the playin squad, as he failed to bring in more players on transfor deadline day! (See Twitter below!)
