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.

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.

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.


3.) 14 Aug 2017 22:08:19
Good post Oldvillan,


4.) 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,


 

 

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!

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 :- (.

Hi guys, my son told me last night that he had heard that there is interest from a prem club that Hourihane was a target.
Any info on this?
Bruce confirmed Amavi will be gone and Baccuna is on his way.

Oldvillan

1.) 10 Aug 2017 11:23:04
Have not heard any news about hourihane,
The other 2 will be gone,


2.) 10 Aug 2017 11:28:53
Why do I get the feeling Peter crouch is coming back to villa?


3.) 10 Aug 2017 11:38:46
Actually, Bruce have been looking to sign Rhodes again, and I hope it will happen.


4.) 10 Aug 2017 11:47:31
The Dr says Rhodes is a no go!


5.) 10 Aug 2017 11:49:48
Gone quite about elfick and Gardner!


6.) 10 Aug 2017 11:50:21
Hourihane would be lucky if Solihull moors were interested in him after last nights performance, found it weird Bruce brought him yet has benched him so often but after last night I can see why, his set pieces are his only positive at the moment. As for Rhodes Bruce and Tony confirmed last night that any talk of Rhodes and Snodgrass are completely false up to now as neither have been identified as targets.


7.) 11 Aug 2017 23:13:15
Are you admiting Bruce brought wrong with hourihane then? See the thing is at barnsley he was setting up and scoring goals for fun i put it to you that Bruce is actually not getting the best out of him.


8.) 12 Aug 2017 12:15:08
But how do you get the best out of him? You can't blame Bruce for everything it's getting embarrassing WTW, next you'll say he's responsible for global warming. Against Watford in the friendly he played him behind the striker in the number 10, he was woeful. Tried him in a midfield 3 and he does nothing, him and Lansbury don't seem to work as a 2. I think that's why we've signed Onomah, reminded me of the snake in the cup, calm on the ball, carries it well and picks his passes. Hourihanes only saving grace so far is his set pieces, although probably a couple of times last season hourihane really did look like the player we thought we was getting, but his hit and miss, hopefully just needs time to settle.


9.) 12 Aug 2017 12:26:08
Bruce buys players like hourinane who are playing well. Sometimes it doesn't work out. Look at de bruye or salah. For what ever reason players struggle at some clubs.


 

 

21 Jul 2017 21:12:42
Following SB's purchase of several senior players I hear that the team will come onto the pitch for home games to the Dad's Army theme.
In years gone by we've had the Power Game and The March of the Gladiators.

Tishbola to Dons looks good for both parties.
If he has what it takes he will help the Dons and then us.
The lad has something to offer and when he was signed many thought that we got a great deal, one for the future.
However the future is now and he must achieve or move on.
I wonder why SB does not rate him as so many posters gave a different opinion.

Oldvillan

1.) 28 Jul 2017 23:55:23
Spent 5million on him, been loaned out twice in less than 12 months. Excellent business.


 

 

19 Jul 2017 17:46:54
It's getting more like a children's comic on here lately, the culprits know who they are.
Such a shame that some grown ups have to trade insults to get their point across.
Accept that one cannot be right all of the time.
For what it's worth, I am really unsure what the future holds for AVFC and will wait till we have played half a dozen games and then decide if SB should walk or if we look the business.
Whatever happens, my dog is still blacker than your dog!

Got a turtle she's called Toby.

Deal done!
Now let's get the lazy bams working, I can't see JT letting £4m go down the pan.
Well done the management team that got JT to sign and a wake up call to several players.
No longer will we be a soft touch at the back.

Oldvillan

1.) 03 Jul 2017 13:30:38
Spot on. This will sort out the men from the shirking freeloaders. No more hiding at the back hoping no-one will notice you. This is exactly what we have been missing - a strong no-nonsense captain of this calibre. One of our best signings in years - well done Mr Bruce and Mr Round.


2.) 03 Jul 2017 15:00:46
Well done brucie and the management did great in the last window. Outdone yourselves this window with just that one signing alone. Now the signing of john ruddy he is keen to come to us, so no pressure.


 

 

08 Apr 2017 11:17:31
Will we get the 3 points today?
Burton have nicked points off a few good teams and are capable of doing it again.
We only just won at VP and they will gave a spring in their step today.
I want a win but may have to settle for a draw. 1-1.

Oldvillan

1.) 08 Apr 2017 14:48:13
They have certainly taken points of some good teams oldvillan. I am hoping we have to much in the locker for them. With the momentum we have created and the clean sheets, think we will take the three points. here, s hoping mate. COME ON YOU VILLA.


2.) 08 Apr 2017 17:01:40
Well you got that result spot on oldvillan. Was hoping we would take the three points. Bit gutted that it has stopped our run, but hey ho onto the next one.


3.) 09 Apr 2017 13:54:34
This should now quell the talk of us sneaking into the play off places
I'd like to see one or two of the best youngsters given game time to see if they have any real ability as our season draws to a close
Not in the derby though. I want the strongest team possible for that so that we can play our part in sending them down.


4.) 09 Apr 2017 16:29:10
Love to see Lyden get a start if his fit enough after injury. Green was close to a start but apparently he's injured that's why he wasn't on the bench yesterday.


5.) 09 Apr 2017 19:04:32
Your right mendax, I'm all for blooding the youngsters and bringing them through the ranks. we have a lot of talent there.


6.) 10 Apr 2017 17:01:41
Clarat53, I'm never sure if we do or not mate.
I've been hearing about a lot of talent breaking through since the Moore brothers. Nothing much has materialisedin reality (both Moores were ultimately disappointments)
I've never gone along with the "throw them in, they can't be any worse than what we have" mentality that has pervaded this site for the past few years while we have struggled. However, we have a few games now where it is safe to experiment a little and see just how good the very best kids are. I'd love us to uncover a new Sid Cowans in the ranks personally (and maybe a young Tony Morley if I was being greedy)


7.) 10 Apr 2017 19:05:04
Niall Mason seems a player, played majority of games for Doncaster this season who got promoted last weekend. I rated Toner when he played last year and Green when he starts a game looks very good but as a sub he's always off the pace of the game. Some people get carried away with our youth, I've seen them a few times (they often stream their games live on Facebook) and a lot of them aren't great, but given the platform I think a few, emphasis on "a few" could become good players. Not sold on Hepburn-Murphy yet, all he seems to have proved is that he's stubborn and got a bad attitude, however he's back tonight for the under 23's so will probably score a hat trick and make me look stupid.


8.) 11 Apr 2017 17:02:29
you don't need RHM for that mate!


9.) 11 Apr 2017 21:49:09
Can't be great for them having Gabby as a role model.

Anything is possible, not probable.
Deadly went to Majorca and had a few drinks with the mercurial french man while on holiday and low and behold we signed a french pensioner named Ginola.
Bruce plays golf with Terry and the media jump on the story.
There have been rumours for several weeks about Terry and Villa, however, u less he wants a challenge we have no opportunity of signing this pensioner even though he is what we need in the middle of the back line.
As.

Are you looking for an arse kicker?
As for desire, we are paying prem wages for div 1 performance.
Too much for too little.

We the fans have desire, the players don't get it.
They see £40000? A week for turning up, it's almost theft.

This where I got on last season.
The patient is in critical need of attention before the body Finally gives way.
Before all the positive posters jump up and down, let's get real.
Currently there are no pointers to us being in the top 6 by the end of the season.
Of that,
I AM POSITIVE.

Sigurdson £50m?
Couple of years ago we were offering £2m?
Walker £50m?
It's down to the stupid money coming out of Sky etc.
Everything has been multiplied by 10.

Just found my boots in the shed and am having the studs knocked in and the sharp nails filed down and hoping to get a game this week.
Willing to accept £50k a game. Any takers.
My old Mom is getting her garden gloves out. She is great in the goals in the back garden.

Perhaps deep down we all want the same thing but look at the situation from a different perspective.
If the team can get on the same wavelength we can look forward to a good season.
