See, i think that last line is where i differ. i think that's exactly what
happened - is that Bruce felt these are professionals and should not need motivating - but damn it someone needed to motivate them - or figure out the ones in the lockerroom that WERE motivated.
i don't at all agree that the forest is on bruce. but a couple of trees are on him - and i think last night is one of them.
when we had nothing to lose, like at azteca, he came out with an outside the box lineup of hungry players that paid off. last night, it's almost like bruce just sort of thought that, if he was going to go out, he'd do it with the lineup everyone expects (the one that had success 4 days earlier). obviously i'm not in that locker room - it just SEEMED that there was a complacency yesterday
