So is the dr's tweet the equivalent of the dreaded vote of confidence for SB 🤔.

I believe its a max of 3 games to turn it around, but if any of those games are a drubbing, taxi for bruce!

17 Aug 2017 06:29:09
If they are going to call a taxi for Bruce then they need to do it now and not stall or delay, everyone seems shocked at our start I knew this would after what I saw in preseason at the game at Shrewsbury still st 0-0 I said to my son we are absolutely toothless and we are.
Apart from Bruce I think there are others at the club who need to go Steve Round for a start as the signings like for example Thor are useless and another example of more money wasted.
However Tonev has to be the worst player I have ever seen in a Villa shirt just thought I would drop that in.

17 Aug 2017 10:35:25
Tonev was pretty bad, what about Tony Moon though?

17 Aug 2017 10:38:22
International break coming up. Maybe Bruce has until then.

Tony Moon will always have that goal against Arsenal.

17 Aug 2017 10:47:35
It probably depends on how bad the results are. If we lose 0-3 to Norwich at Home, SB might not be here next week. If we win then stutter, he might be here till X-mas.

Yeah, I was at that game so I'll give TM that, it was a cracker.

16 Aug 2017 15:31:04
Deja vu!
Never been a poster that wanted a manager out, always try to see the best.
However Bruce has to fall on his sword, NOW.
If he really cares then he should go of his own free will, walk before being pushed.
He has had more opportunity and support from the owner than any previous manager.

When, not if, he goes who will accept the poison chalice. I am not qualified to even guess who it could be.
All I ask is a man with passion, vision and awareness.
Steve please take a ride asap.

Bring back Sherwood. He was never given a fair crack of the whip when he was here, and he seems to be the only one that actually got the players to show a bit of passion. A lot of the players already know him, and know the way he likes to play, which could be an advantage than bringing in somebody completely new again. let's face it, we've had enough new faces in that have been a shambles! Give him another go I say, and I think he would definitely accept the challenge.

So last night we was shocking and toothless .

I have openly said prior that managers should be given a chance prior to getting the bullet . However I must agree with most on here that the time is now for change .

We are toothless in attack with no ambition in the attacking areas .

I do believe that with Kodjia and Hogan we have two of the best strikers in the league but there is not movement, killer passes and conviction in our play .

I also believe that gabby is a bad luck omen for villa . As every time he plays we play poorly!

Personally i would like to see one of the three below given a chance as they are young and aspiring managers

Paul Heckinbottam - young, plays bright progressive football, managed to get the best out of Hourihane which meant Barnsley scored goals for fun last season

Lee Johnson - again like heckinbottom plays football the right way . managed Kodjia very well also

Tim Sherwood - he has unfinished business and certainly had the passion . Just. It sure if we should ever go back.

16 Aug 2017 11:51:37
Villa -kenn
I also agree with all your choices of next villa manager,

I would also like to add Dean Smith to that list,
His team's are always great on the eye and I would not be disappointed if he got the job,
But your choices make perfect sense as well,
Let's hope one of us is right,

18 Aug 2017 02:47:07
I'd add Clough the Younger. Doing a good job at Burton and Hove Albion.

My problem with Sherwood is that he didn't rate Gil, saw him as lightweight. Preferred Nzombia. Loved the way he motivated players and beating Liverpool in the semi-final.

15 Aug 2017 22:10:17
For me bruce has to go i'm like everyone else don't like sacking managers, but we have to act now bring sherwood and bigsam as a double act or one or other options giggs maybe fulhams manager, moyes, pardew no no please hell no.

Have villa made a approach for Jack Wiltshire? Good move or bad thoughts?

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Aug 2017 17:45:07
If he stays fit, would be an absolute stroke of genius.

15 Aug 2017 17:52:09
Mybe a good move, but would have thought a targetman upfront would have been our priority.

15 Aug 2017 18:15:39
We have the forwards we just need to find the right service for them.

15 Aug 2017 21:30:10
good move.

15 Aug 2017 22:21:52
Good move if it comes off 👌🏻.

16 Aug 2017 16:33:27
Before the transfer window shuts, sell Gabby buy a DONKEY, the donkey would be cheaper and score more goals.

14 Aug 2017 18:12:33
Surely one day SB will realise that he must get back to the simple tried and tested way of putting the ball in the net.
Why does he not play to Hogan style and play the ball between defenders for Hogan to get onto. That's how most teams seem to play.
Too much emphasis on defending, not that that is successful, not enough on feeding the striker.

No risky balls forward, no imaginative passes and very few threatening plays.
SB bought Hogan because he scored goals but how many has he scored for us?
Get Hourihane into the mid park with the instruction to push the ball forwards, Lansbury looks lost sometimes.

The defence by name looks good but Cardiff enjoyed an early Christmas present.
Dare one suggest that if SB wants to keep his job he must change his vision.
Possibly the best names in the league wear our shirt but they are off the pace with the style of play that we see on the pitch.
It is almost as if they can't think for themselves.
Can they?

Great post mate I agree with everything styles make fights.

14 Aug 2017 20:37:42
Well said Oldvillian, some talking head on the radio said that bruce has reverted to percentage football, hope that's wrong, either we've got players carrying niggling injuries, or our coaching team needs to go out and buy a dummies guide to a footballers' fitness, because clearly something isn't adding up, and by the way, if we give bruce 10 games to turn it around, then looking at it with a calculator, we won't be giving ourselves a fair chance to get promoted automatically, just an observation fellas;alas.

14 Aug 2017 22:08:19
Good post Oldvillan,

18 Aug 2017 02:57:16
Thing is our rapid continual changing of managers in comparrison to other teams that have done well in the Championship, isn't doing us any good either.

In two years time, if still struggling agter sacking Bruce, are some supporters going to be calling for the return of Bruce because at least he knew about defence,

2.5 and 500k in add ons.

13 Aug 2017 20:36:19
Does he need a lift down there Tuesday? I'm leaving Chelmsley around 2, I'll put some blankets in the back of the van but he'll have to keep low


13 Aug 2017 21:30:12
Great bit of business for reading getting a champions league player for that price!

12 Aug 2017 23:06:30
Last season there were a few of us who saw how poor we were over the last ten games and without spite or malice felt Bruce was not going to take us anywhere. The football was turgid and lacked any semblance of creativity. Nothing was ever going to change. The realists were pilloried for lack of loyality and our football knowledge was questioned. Everything we said was accurate, I have read all of the regular contributors comments after the game and lo and behold, they now agree that Bruce is taking us nowhere. Dr T now is the time to act before we are again the laughing stock we have been for the last six years.

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Aug 2017 23:29:40
I preferred you when you was a fake in the know telling us how we was going to sign this player and that player and it never coming true. It's easy to say "I told you so" six months later but no one will remember you saying so in the first place.

13 Aug 2017 18:03:01
And low and behold someone else who can now say we are crap because they always said we were!

In perspective, we have lost 1 game.

Hopeful? Hopeless.

14 Aug 2017 13:47:07
Exactly that flackie onedraw and one loss and the moaners come out in droves. okay didn, t expect us to cave in like we did but the bruce and the players will turn it around. Thing is don, t panic.!

12 Aug 2017 20:11:43
for weeks I've been saying this and most time i get moaned at but why is it we have one decent set piece taker (constantly on bench conor h) we have one decent striker (injured for god knows how long) and no midfielder who can create or shoot at goal?

said from moment we went of lansbury its a crap buy and he is going to drag the midfield down more than it already was and so far point proven,

its a must that in the next few weeks we go and either buy (if FFP allows us to) or loan a striker who can actually hit a shot and head the ball, damn if need be a player like crotch will do. and a player who will run at defenders and shoot from midfield (just not sure who fits that bill)

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Aug 2017 21:39:17
Lol player like crotch!

12 Aug 2017 22:20:24
Mate it's easy to say "said this from the start" "said this when we" but without evidence you talking rubbish, step down from the high horse. Makes you sound a tool.

18 Aug 2017 07:01:45
Actually Crouch would be an intelligent signing. Good with both head and feet and brings other players into the game.

12 Aug 2017 19:36:45
At last reality has arrived. We are not as good as we think we are.
Embarrassing to think that we were talking promotion two weeks ago, now we are asking for SB to go.

Shocking, dismal, disappointing. Kids football. Why are they going to recognise our shirt? Waste of our time and money.
Come on Dr Tony, act before its too late, the clock ticks on!

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Aug 2017 19:53:53
We have tried everything to build a team, Here is an idea why don't we stop spending money as we can't anymore and show some patients why we build a team with young hungry players. In football you need to want it. Afraid to many players at Villa in last 6 years not really bothered if team lose, few players who were bothered simple not good enough. Going to be a long way back :- (.
