my sources are telling me that we have put a bid In for Peter crouch. it is thought crouch would be open to the prospect of rejoining villa and spearheading the promotion push next season. other targets include sam johnson John Terry and a loan move for Patrick Roberts off man city who has done well at Celtic this season. kingy exclusive.

{Ed007's Note - I can guarantee you that Paddy Roberts won't be at Aston Villa next season.}

I would love crouch back pace don't matter his never been qwick but what's the point in giving RHM a contract if your always gona buy players davis looked good aswel.

Kingy-your forgetting redknapp wants him too, be great if we did nab him though.

Hi all crouchie would be a good signing but i would try and sign ryan woods CM from brentford class little player always gives 100% and hardly ever wastes a pass and he is localish lad as he is from Cannock.

Hearing rumour of Villa putting in bid, for Aaron Mooy . Certainly hope this one true, just what we want, a figure head in midfield . Had a brilliant season for Huddersfield . Onwards &Upwards Villaforever.

I recommended mooy when he was playing for Melbourne city 2 yrs ago, bloody quality holding midfielder an has a decent free kick.

Reading reports that Bruce will have a budget of just 1 mill + what he can generate through sales.
Looks like we won't be getting the 3-4 top quality signings we were hoping for
I wonder what Bruce is thinking?
Perhaps we should utilise the loan market a bit more?

Believable4 Unbelievable1

14 May 2017 01:14:03
If the players who spent this year on loan are sold, that must give us a sizeable pot.
Then Richards, and the like.

Think with the size of the playing staff, was always a sell before you buy pre season.

I personally don't think we need many additions any way. just a keeper, and a full pre season with what we have.


How's things mendax? Hope your well mate.

Agree2 Disagree1

14 May 2017 01:27:35
Thats the reason he's trying to get mcshortfarce back on side again, looks like our once mighty club is going to be going cap in hand, you couldn't make it up with all these sticks and twists, but for me personally, i think this news is brilliant, now he'll have to work with what we got, and maybe that continuity will bring that ingredient that's been missing from our game.

Agree2 Disagree1

14 May 2017 06:06:31
I don't belive a word of it rules are you can only spend what you generate well we have 3 parachute payments last year was 50 million and this year it should be 30 million. Plus we prob generate 6 million in attendance eg season tickets then there's player sales. We are selling this season but that's because Bruce wants to not because he has to! These jornos havnt got a clue at all. Watch the doctor laugh it off again.

Agree2 Disagree1

14 May 2017 06:36:18
Just read what dr. tony has to say, and it doesn't sound as bad as made out at all. We do only need strengthening in a few places but branding figures about is mad. True we can't spend 50 60 million again but we don't need to Bruce brought most of his players in January. money we can generate Richie de laet 3 million amavi 10 million elphick 3 million verout 10 million gill 3 million there's 29 million we parachute payments we be fine. its Gabby and Richards need moving on Richards still on 50k so Gabby. Bottom line is the squad is far to big if we sell we have more money to spend but that's with any business papers gone bit over board if you ask me tho.

Agree2 Disagree1

14 May 2017 11:52:56
I'm good Flackie
I agree with you on the numbers although I think a younger version of Jedinak is also a priority.

Agree2 Disagree1

14 May 2017 12:21:10
I think he will be played further back next year, and I have a feeling tishbola will be back for next year.

I do think, with no additions, assuming Johnstone stays, we have the squad to come up.

A full pre season, and Bruce has no excuse. It's his team now.

Agree2 Disagree1

15 May 2017 12:16:32
I think we will be absolutely fine guys I believe that we have the potential to move the following on

Richards - 2million
Gabby - 1million
Elpkick- 2million
McCormack -5 million
Amarvi - 10million
Veretout - 8-10million
Gil - 4 million

Potentially over 30 million from dead wood and surpus players

I wouldn't also look at selling grealish for 10million if viable as he just doesn't cut it for me

Then add

Watkins from Barnsley
New CB possibly the lad from Bristol city
New left back - Rico Henry maybe

Then would go forrestieri, or vibe and I think the. We have a good team able to challenge for promotion

If Brighton can do it with there team then why can't we?

We just need to play better quality football . No sideways passes and quicker ball.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2017 11:49:37
Nice to see j. amavi has got himself a new agent to get him a move, shouldn't be surprised but still am a bit though, anyone else about redknapp taking an interest in peter crouch and a few saying Sunderland might make a cheeky bid for elphick? might be the journo's trying to fill their columns but i don't think elphick is in brucy's plan.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

13 May 2017 13:43:48
Elphick is rubbish so would love that maybe we could swap him for kone. As for Redknapp expect the usual suspects kranjcar crouch oh and Herman heridasson lol. Would you take Crouch back mate?

10 May 2017 22:19:47
Marley watkins is again being linked with us, available for a bargain price is helping matters as well it seems.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

10 May 2017 23:21:28
Bargin price his on a free lol. His a Barnsley player. Another 1 who will crap himself playing infront of 36 thousend everyweek we need top players who can handle playing for such a big club but as a squad player free suppose couldn't hurt.

Agree3 Disagree1

11 May 2017 02:30:20
Wtw - if you know anything about barnsley supporters its that they don't suffer fools gladly, so i don't reckon he'd bottle it. yeah we're a big club, but that means zip in this league, just makes us a bigger scalp, and maybe signing a lesser known player is exactly what we should be doing, so that football is the main attraction, not a players reputation, these type of players maybe precisely what we need, it might stop some people from living off past glories and top league snobbery, remember, of all the 'top' players we've bought i think only 2 deserve to wear the jersey, we need to smell the coffee and a boot up the harris to wake up, shut up and put up-earn the right to go up, not expect it-but what do i know!

Agree2 Disagree0

11 May 2017 13:12:48
McCormack, Lansbury, Hogan, Hourihane - all bottled it so far.

Agree1 Disagree2

11 May 2017 13:23:19
Names do not mean nothing to me mate. But Steve Bruce has said himself that the championship players he has brought haven't got to grips with playing such a big club mate and expectation level. I still say if he only buys 5 players get proven quality in. We have been link with kolarov the Man City full back his on a free and the link with Defoe is nice as well these prob won't happen but this is the type of players we should be going for!

I am still amazed that Lansbury is on 50k a week it's crazy he is poor and on big bucks we need proven players and I think Steve Bruce knows that because if he gets a bad start like Rdm pressure will be on. This club is a Premier league club and needs to get back there quick no more excuses.

Agree1 Disagree4

11 May 2017 15:29:31
Where have we been linked with Kolarov? and where's the information saying Lansbury is on 50k a week?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2017 15:35:30
WTW

did you actually just put Defoe and kolarov in the last post about proven names coming to villa?

Please sir if your going to spout off please talk sense, because both players will never grace the championship in claret and blue

Brighton have just got promoted from this division . The majority of their players have come from the championship or lower leagues .

So your point is floored .

On the flip side, I do agree that some of the new additions have looked out of sorts .

Far to many have not played like they did at previous clubs. There are far to many side ways passes in the middle of the park and the ball is not quick enough

Steve Brice needs to allow the players to be far more expansive in their play . He also needs to tell jimmy danger to pass more often.

I would love to see veretout in the team personally I would send Grealish out on loan for a year and let's see why veretout has got

I would also be very tempted into having a good go at getting forestieri from Wednesday if they sell that is.

Watkins from Barnsley is a good shout being a free transfer

Failing that Jota and Vibe from Brentford certainly add some flair.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2017 17:32:47
Kolarov was on a man city fanzine, popped up on newsnow and lansbury link was through football manager who have professionals who investigate these thing to make it realistic and so far they have been correct as sky sports now use them as well.

Agree0 Disagree1

11 May 2017 17:33:49
I'd take 1 of Forrestieri, Vibe or Jota.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2017 17:34:55
Villa kenn no harm in showing ambition and to be honest we wasted so much money on poor players from the championship i don't want to watch championship players that get scared of playing in front of a crowd. let's have it right Aston Villa is a amazing club to play for they should be honoured to play for us not scared.

Steve Bruce his words not mine the players have been here 4 months now there's no more excuses they need to step up an deal with expectation because Aston Villa is a wonderful football club who need to be in the premier league.

So i doubt his going to make the same mistake again an buy championship players who have proven like Chris has said up above quite frankly have bottled it.

Agree2 Disagree2

11 May 2017 17:06:49
Jota is a good shout. Would love to get helder costa from wolves think he would be a great addition.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 May 2017 19:08:44
There's showing ambition and there is being down right stupid.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 May 2017 22:12:56
Wouldn't believe Lansbury being on 50k, probably on half that, to my knowledge they are all on around 25/ 30, not 100% fact but when Gardner got a new contract Bruce aid something about he was on less than everyone else and he deserved to be on the same, and a couple of papers said it was believed to be 25/ 30k mark. Only players I can see being on more would be Amavi, Gabby - players who were signed start of last season or before where they didn't have relegation clauses, Richards is probably on a whack.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2017 22:17:46
And WTW to me our best players this year have been Kodjia and Chester, so it's 50/ 50 one was from the championship and one the prem. best player signed in January must be Taylor so that's definitely something we should aim for, funny both play regularly for Wales but couldn't get a game at their clubs. We could all probably name 4 or 5 players who would improve us however it's useless if the players are then told to do something they've never done before. Bruce has got the success of this football club on his shoulders this summer, I hope his up to it.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2017 22:45:33
Wtw - if lansbury is on 50k a week, how much do you think kolarov and defoe would want-and a side point, their no spring chickens, do you think they can grind out 2-3 games a week? -defoe said he was cream-crackered after playing 4 games in 2 weeks back in january, he wouldn't last a month in the championship, but if you can persuade the doctor to get them in, i'll tip my hat to ya and buy you a sticky bun next season!

Agree1 Disagree0

12 May 2017 00:07:47
Aww mate a sticky bun sounds amazing mate i will be praying they come now any chance off cup of tea with it? They are examples of players we been linked with mate not saying there coming but i would like them an other fringe prem stars. Also Chris great post again i agree with you about doesn't matter what players come in if Steve Bruce tells them to defend or play out of position. I hope Steve Bruce gets it right in the summer 1st of all his going Barbados on holiday then hope he comes back with a plan!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2017 22:02:58
Hurrahh, great news, we have just signed an exciting winger, 3 year deal, bruce can't wait to see him play for us, his name is clay atkins, only slight problem is he's only 7!- looks like he won't be ready to give grealish a run for his money till at least after christmas!

Believable1 Unbelievable0

08 May 2017 15:32:24
Was speaking to a few bretheren and the conversation got round to brucie and what style of play we should try and stick to. a leicester supporter who was in our company than gave his tuppence worth, which was that brucie was suffering from 'small club manager syndrome', he enlightened us with his opinion that because bruce had always managed at smaller clubs (sunderland i replied were nearly as big as us? ), he didn't have as much of a squad to choose from, hence more often than not the team mostly picked itself.

so continuity was there, and because he knew each players limitations the nucleus of the squad could compensate and thus a unit formed, now of course we laughed him off to the bar to buy a double round for being so stupid, but today, a few of us are wondering if having too much choice has been causing brucey to chop and change, and dither sometimes, and so opportunities are lost.

what do you think?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

08 May 2017 17:40:23
The problem with Bruce is not that he has too much choice, quite simply he is not up to the task. He has turned good players in to clueless amateurs, we will be having these discussions all next season. Trust me we have seen enough to suggest things are not going to change. in the last forty or so hours of football under Bruce and I have watched most of this I have not seen fifteen minutes of quality, or any cohesive tactical nouse, that's down to the manager.

Agree1 Disagree4

08 May 2017 17:42:51
There is evidence to support it, as when we went and won 8 games in 9, we was down to the bare bones and the squad picked itself for the majority. However it doesn't explain his stupid tactics because as seen yesterday, we can attack we can make chances, just not in the "easier" games. Makes no sense to me.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 May 2017 21:47:13
Not seen 15 minutes of quality in 40 hours of football, bit of a drama queen because you don't like Bruce.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 May 2017 23:01:23
Come on chris, we're all part of a broad church, hopeful is only airing his concerns because like us all, we love the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2017 09:47:18
Saying things like, haven't seen 15 minutes of quality in 40 hours of football, is just melodramatic.

09 May 2017 13:36:37
Well said chris your one of the few that actually make sense.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 May 2017 14:13:45
I don't really care how exciting or entertaining the football is atm. We need results. When we went on that 8 wins in 9 games we didn't play that we'll then. But so what. I couldn't care if we scrape every game 1-0 next year and the goal comes off kodjias left testicle. This division is like quick sand and every year a big club like ours is stuck in it you sink a bit deeper. Look at forest Blackburn and Leeds. We don't want to be another one of those. Steve Bruce has the best record of getting out of here so we need to stick with him. She knows what he's doing. UTV.

Agree0 Disagree1

09 May 2017 17:40:42
Cheers Clarat. Good point Rich, I think the only reason he hasn't got everyone on his back is because of his record in this league. When we went on that run of 8 in 9, we played defensive and it looked horrible, no one cared because we was winning, however when we're playing awful and not picking up any points what so ever (Fulham, Reading) it starts to wind people up.

Ipswich at home we played well, created chance after chance and got hit on the break and lost 1-0, sometimes that's the way it is. What so confusing is twice this year we've drew to Brighton, and our performed them and out played them, they got gifted a penalty Sunday and the chance to play against 10 men, then they scored a solo worldie in the other game, the sort you see 3 times max a season.

They came second, why can we mix it with the big boys and play, show how we can attack, create brilliant chances, and then when the little teams come we score and then sit back and try and defend for 80minutes?

Bruce needs to prove himself this transfer window as well, so far everyone he's signed has regressed in form, and he got better results out of Gustede, Ayew, McCormack and our "weaker" midfield from before January, than he has since January!

Biggest season in recent history, if we don't get promotion chances are we will rot in this league for 4/5 years, and it starts in the summer, get that right and give us the best platform to use this quality squad we have in the right way and get us out of this awful league.

Agree3 Disagree0

07 May 2017 23:39:43
Havent seen us create so many chances for ages, even though the passing at times was downright terrible . As someone else has already stated, the arguing about who took the free kick, was embarrassing. Nearly as embarrassing as Elphics, display when he came on . On a high not I thought Davis, realy looked the part .

The first forward all season to actually look to hold the ball up . The future looks bright for him . Once again Feel sorry for Hogan, let's hope it's not to bad and he's up and running for next season . There was signs of an improvement today . let's hope Brucie, can get the players in that he wants and sort a decent System out for next season . Onwards and Upwards, Villaforever.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

07 May 2017 18:08:36
Thank God the seasons finished, let's enjoy the summer buy some top players and fight to go up next season. Duno if anybody saw the craig gardner interview on youtube but he slates us for cheering against our own team says he can't even mention our clubs name and says blues have better fans than us.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

07 May 2017 21:52:09
Yeah, saw that. He's doing his brother a lot of favours there isn't he.
What an absolute pillock. The new Mark Tate
Blues fans would never have acted the way ours did at Blackburn had the position been reversed of course.
I've eaten things that had more intelligence than that idiot. He makes Gabby look like a University Challenge contestant.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 May 2017 22:54:37
He seems to forget blues staging a full funeral the day we got relegated with hundreds of them there, embarrassing. Villa fans wearing Blackburn tops was stupid but it was 50 fans max, and not the sort of people who care what people say on social media, in their home heads they were just having a laugh. Thought it was funny when he tried to say the blues fans were top class people, an was insinuating all villa fans are lower.

forgetting his brothers a villa fan and he's a self proclaimed villa fan. They celebrated like they won a cup, dancing on the pitch taking squad pictures on the pitch and then first opportunity he gets he mentions the villa, sums them up. We know ourselves you can't cheat relegation every year, that's twice in 3 recent years they've stayed up by one goal, it is going to catch up to them and it will be so sweet when it does.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 May 2017 11:19:59
I hope your right mate i hate them scum bags. Harry has a habbit of doing well tho but as they have very little money can't see them doing much. 1 thing I will say is forget Birmingham City let's focuss on Aston Villa and going back up to where we belong! What does people think off harry maguire i belive we could get him and looks decent.

Agree1 Disagree1

08 May 2017 17:41:55
Macguire is a good player, but the likes of southampton, stoke and west ham are sniffing around, and with a place in the Engand team on offer.

i can't see him coming, like i said a while ago, flint is in the mix, and if we miss out, the Barnsley centre-half is another option, but don't rule out Michael turner, or samba getting a pay as you go contract, and i believe dr. xia has also said we must sell before we buy.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 May 2017 21:48:04
He hasn't said that anywhere ever.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 May 2017 15:37:51
Awful refereeing decisions as usual but if we want to go up next year it's something we will need to get used to. Hourihane and Bacuna arguing over a freekick is embarrassing, leave that to Newcastle. Davies looks decent and in a fair world he gets awarded a pen. Do bans carry over to next season? If so surely Bakers red will be rescinded, awful decision. Still can't understand how we can go toe to toe with the big teams, attack them and play well but then put 11 behind the ball and hoof it against everyone else.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

06 May 2017 08:51:28
Every year at this time of the year fans reflect on the past season and look forward with optimism to the next season. We long suffering villa fans have done this over the last five years only to be disappointed. We have investment loyal fans what we don't have is a manager who wants to give us quality football but has a strategy to maintain his credibility as a football man.

Please guys don't back a man who is only focused on his own credibility we deserve better. The last four months have been turgid and is not likely to improve. The signings have been poor and will not get us challenging for honours. I really don't have a solution or a magic wand, wish I had, but what we have is going no where no matter what rose tinted glasses you wear.

So please guys don't sit back and hope good times are ahead because it ain't going to happen. Want far more and expect far more or our club is going to end up like Wigan, Blackburn and blues.

Believable0 Unbelievable3

06 May 2017 10:42:07
You make a point but then have no explanation or evidence following it. If you called Bruce useless, a dinasaur, clueless then you probably have a selection of games where we've been awful in the final third and abject of ideas and play hoof ball. However only focused on his own credibility? How? What planet are you on? Where do you get this stuff from?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2017 17:05:04
Hopeful really? Look mate I understand your anger some games this season we have been simply awful and Bruce hadn't hid from that but I still think his watching players seeing who he can trust. I am not a massive fan at all his football is awful but because of his record we have to give him time his record says he knows what his doing.

I don't think Bruce is great but his not selfish or concerned with his own record as you put it his a top bloke trying his best his honest I just think his not our type of manager that we are used to seeing. Kodjia getting injured as put a huge dent on our promotion hopes but as a team we should be setting up an scoring more goals. Grelish and many others have got to be scoring and playing better its about desire! My outcome give him a pre season and let's at least let him have ago to turn it around if it fails go for wagner.

Agree2 Disagree2

07 May 2017 00:12:28
I agree wtw, but we the way we play at the minute stifles players like hogan, Hourihane and Grealish from stepping up, we are in our own half majority of the time with 11 behind the ball. Defensive football when we have one of the best attacking squads in the league.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 May 2017 11:02:50
I wonder what are the odds of us going for john ruddy and micheal turner from norwich city, now they've both been released? might be worth a pay as you go contract?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

05 May 2017 15:23:06
So let me get this straight they're not good enough for Norwich but they are good enough for Aston Villa Who are suppose to be a bigger club?

Agree0 Disagree1

05 May 2017 18:48:56
Bruce said he wanted 3-4 signings of "real quality"
Do you think those 2 qualify?
(I thought Turner had retired)

Agree0 Disagree0

05 May 2017 20:30:39
All i'm saying fellas is john ruddy is an experienced, capped england goalkeeper, i think he'd be a good back-up to johnson (or whoever) if we get him, as for turner, bruce has managed him before and rated him the best in the country (in his opinion) at the time, he's 32 also, and he and bruce apparently operate on the same wavelength.

whether its just a 1 year pay as you go, who knows, but bruce has said in the past, if he was available he'd try and buy him again (while he was managing elsewhere obviously), so, do i think he's our long term answer, non, mon ami, but an experienced old head with a wealth of experience and good anticipation, not afraid to put himself about and an apparent leader and organiser, who could maybe marshal us at the back and help the younger players keep in check, maybe, and if we play him alongside chris samba, at least the lads will think they're on an episode of the Onedin Line (for those of us from an older generation! ) with all that creaking of joints, echoing that of a handmade wooden ship, and the smell of deep heat in the air, get in there!

Agree0 Disagree0

05 May 2017 21:25:23
Oh well, if you put it like that I'm in. Sign em up!

We certainly seem to be having a clear out at the academy. Some of them, I thought where rated quite highly, a couple of them where given a contract last year . They certainly must think, that they have better prospects coming through . I just hope that none of them don't, develope well and come back to bite us on the bum . It must be realy hard to judge them at this level, how many times have we seen realy good kids stop developing and go backwards . There again we have let a couple go, the went on to good things . Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

05 May 2017 12:07:09
A lot of the ones released have been at the age where you'd expect them to break into the first team for the last 2 years now, in that time we've probably had 5/ 6 managers (Sherwood, Garde, McDonald, Eric Black, Di Matteo, Bruce) and I don't think any of the ones released have a senior cap to their name. For 6 managers not to give them a chance, having gone through every situation possible; senior players not caring, senior players being awful, having nothing to play for. If after all that they haven't been given a chance, it tells me their not good enough, Green, Hepburn-Murphy, Kienan Davies, Toner and Niall Mason were all in and around their team and evidently their the only ones who have progressed.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 May 2017 12:41:58
Well the championship trophy is coming to Villa Park but its not for us hopefully. some of these losers we have down there at the moment who choose not to show up for certain games will look at Brighton and try and aspire to what they have done.

Yes on paper we have a good team but we don't show the heart like Brighton to be a champion you have to want it and work hard only player who can say has worked hard all season is Alan Hutton. As a club no matter what anybody says we have failed this season from chairman to managers to players.

No excuses next season Chairman as made mistakes both managers have made mistakes and the players have more on an off days than my mrs at the end of the month! At least Dr. Tony is giving us a free beer but to be honest I would rather I was drinking to us going up rather than just his a beer for sticking by us!

Got to disagree about the chairman, manager. However the players are the ones that have to take the brunt of the critisism. The chairman backed both managers to the hilt. As for the bruce he came in and did the best that he could with players not of his choosing. Give him a break, allow him to bring in a few players that are of his choosing then judge him. with a few of his own players to go with what was brought in, in january think we are going to have a promotion chasing team. Have faith, keep the faith.

None of Steve Bruce's signings have made a difference so far Steve Bruce even said they have been with us for 4 months now and expects better. Yes the chairman has spent money but it's all been wasted because he picked the wrong managers.

Even Steve Bruce said after the Blackburn game I have to look at myself as well questioning his own performance as manager! We have average players on huge wages.

The chairman is a very good chairman at spending money but because ge knows nothing about football unfortunately it's going to waste! The teams we are losing to is a joke. I expect next season to go exactly as it has this season Bruce will get the sack and we will get somebody in by then be to late.

Steve Bruce has not got a style of play if anybody knows it tell me. Hogan is example of this he just bought a man in form not to fit a style of play we have no real width and our only style seems to be boot it up an hope for the best!

I am not saying his not the man for the job I said his record buys him time but is his football borring yes has any of his signings worked? Not really. Does he get results sometimes. Do i think he will get us up not playing like this. Do I like him as a guy yes his honest he trys and trys but at the moment he has no style of play and his buying players based on form not to fit a style of play if he gets off to a bad start next season he won't last long and he knows it.

Answer this if you are a player for him would it fill you with confidence that he openly comes out and says his own performance as manager might not be good enough to manage Aston Villa? You wouldn't get Rafa Bentez saying that. We keep saying we are a big club can we start acting like 1 then? The manager the players are all worried whether they are good enough for our club if you have to ask that your not good enough!

Wtw - a salient point, but let's say your the chairman and you decide to frisbee bruce off into the sunset, who is out there who has a reputation that precedes him, has a wealth of experience, has the contacts, has a track record for promotions, commands respect from the players and knows how to deal with sometimes loony toon chairmen, and has learned not to get too excited when winning, and not too despondent when losing, what manager is out there who covers all that and isn't gamefully employed already, on top of that what manager whose a success is willing to drop into the championship, where keeping players fit and healthy trumps playing attractive football.

And on top of that you'd have to pay a good few pennies to get them to come on down, now moyesy will be available very soon, but somehow to me his style wouldn't be much of an improvement, so stick or twist, you either stay with brucey or go overboard and get in either a young dynamic coach (Jaap Stam for instance, or wagner or Garry Monk, ) or a foreign coach if you got the cahoonas to roll the dice, so 'walkies', the floor is yours, what do ya say?

Its a tough one I know what your saying but judging on performances I can't see us going up. Roberto Mancini or somebody of that statue. What Iam saying is we are a huge club we need a manager and players that are not scared of playing or managing Aston Villa. I like Carlos Angelotti aswel. Players we should be in for Defoe or of that statue.
