Sheffield Utd v Villa match thread

This has the potential for a real banana skin but depending on outgoings & incomings today it could also be a lot better than we have seen recently, whatever happens the blades will be up for it and in our faces I think we can?will shade it 1 nil UTV Scarf Waving

Another disjointed and shambolic display and it will be Bruce's last. Signs of activity behind the scenes, I think.

This is just the sort of game that Bruce plays his 'get out of jail' card. One we perhaps are not expected to win but do so and Bruce lives to fight another day.

Draw at best for me so it keeps Bruce still sitting on the fence.

As a season ticket holder working in Sheffield & living in Rotherham, these next three fixtures are massive, if only the grief I’ll avoid with positive results.
Was at Bumhole Stain last season in their end for the Snoddy win, more of the same tomorrow please boys .
I see relentless pressure & possession for the Blades only for us to catch them on the break 1-2 Villa ⚽️

No Abraham or Bolasie in the squad. Jedinak, Whelan, Tuanzebe, Hutton, Chester, Elmohamady all start. Are we going 3 at the back?

El Ghazi plays on the right wing but so does Elmo. Who's playing on the left?

2-0. We're the gift that keeps on giving.

Should be about 4 down, they are all over us!
Glad that Bruce is happy with this defence, still 'that is the Championship for you'!

Enough, I am going out for a long walk!

The goalpost came to our rescue earlier too.

What's happening with the defence and where's our DM? I'm listening on the website and haven't a clue how we're lined up, which by this stage of the season should really be more obvious.

Still, we're in 10th now so hopefully there's a clause in Bruce's contract about dropping out of the top six. If Wigan score against Rotherham we'll be out of the top 10.

I'm going to go with:

1. Individual errors.
2. New players integrating.
3. Other new players not ready yet.
4. Sheffield being the better team on the day.

Exactly as predicted and expected. Sheffield look like a well trained, well coached, tactically aware football team. We look like a disjointed shambles.
We have the players but they need setting up correctly and teaching to press when we don't have the ball and pass and move when we do. The pig-headed stubborness of persisting with Jedinak at CB just to save face, even though it's obviously a failure. is beyond belief.
If Bruce has any honour, he will fall on his sword at 5pm tonight. If not, he should be sacked for incompetence tomorrow. Agnew as caretaker but Dean Smith or Brendan Rodgers should be tapped up asap.

For quite some time I've been thinking Bruce is playing not for Aston Villa or another promotion to his name but for his £3million payoff. There's no other reason for it. El Ghazi isn't playing in his natural position on the right because Elmo is there. Adomah is seemingly now out on his ear instead of on the left where he plays so well (despite playing out of position!). De Laet is a very good RB but no, we have to have a CB there etc etc etc. What Whelan is doing on the pitch is anyone's guess (just as the commentator says "and he's gone past Whelan"). In fact they've just carved through us and the goalie saved number five.

Bruce has lost the dressing room, and the respect of the players, you should not as a manager blame your players in public, we need a new manager in to sort out the team, get conferdence back, and play players in the right position. I would not give him any more games, time is up. If we keep him, we will be that far behind the leaders, we will have no hope of catching them.

Bruce has to be gone by tomorrow lunchtime at the latest, hopefully it’ll be by 6pm this evening. If Mr Edens and Sawaris are reading please be assured you have the fans backing to get rid of the fraud that is Bruce

He should be gone this evening, but I've thought that many a time, and he always survives. If he isn't replaced over the international break, for me that will be the first big mistake of the new regime.

This afternoon has been another sorry low point.

I think sticking with Bruce is now looking like more of a risk than switching.

Bruce must go and a progressive,modern coach appointed. But this will not solve the other problem that we have. There are no leaders and organisers on the pitch. Chester is not a captain. We need another Terry.

Has Bruce made any comments after the game yet??? Wonder what words of wisdom, or who is he going to blame, he needs to just go.
