Lot on here banging on about getting Smith in? Just out of curiosity where are Brentford in the league and if he was any good why haven't bigger clubs gone in for him? Plus I didn't know a lot of fans on here watch a lot of Brentford games to know they play free flowing attacking football week in week out every team that play Villa it's their cup final it's just that we have got too learn how to approach each and every single cup final with the same pinnach that they do.

They didn’t win there first 8 games and they’ve lost the most points from a winning position because they don’t know how to hold onto a lead due to there attack minded play but he sticks to his beliefs and has turned it around.

IMO he would be a good appointment at least we will see more attractive football .

Who would you like to see as gaffer.

So you would rather be where Brentford are than where we are Malc? Attacking football is good and don't get me wrong I'd love to see it all the time but if you can't keep a clean sheet you losing half the battle until our injuries we was fine and dandy and after the 1st 10 mins against sheffield u everyone was joyous and buyount until the mistakes made by the players not the manager same again against Brentford terrible marking for the 2nd goal again is that brucies fault? As I said before I'd keep Bruce until end of season or until we can't get in playoffs and if the good dr sees fit to wield the axe then I'd love too see Michael Laudrup down VP until then I will back Bruce because we need STABILITY.

apologies for the long winded post

I get what your saying Daz, however in recent weeks we are unable to do either . Whether that be keeping a clean sheet or attack with any purpose.

Our football is dire, we are too slow and pass sideways or failing that lump it up the pitch far to often .

Sam Johnstone is a good keeper and I hope he stays, but every time the ball is passed back to him it is simply lumped upfield .

I have always said Bruce needed time . Now IMO Bruce should go

Far too many players have been brought in and failed to make the grade . Good players don’t become bad players overnight .

We brought Hogan who again IMO without a doubt is a goal scorer . Subject to being played in the right way through the channels . (Something we don’t do)

Yes we have had injuries, but wow we have so many players that should be able to provide cover

We keep making terrible decisions with managers who just don’t seem to play there best players .

We have been struggling for centrebacks due to Bruce letting Baker leave

IMO Hutton or Bree could of filled in at centre back and not Jedinak who is not a CB

Bree was a great young rightback at Barnsley and now can’t even get on the subs bench.

We as supporters require better, the manager unfortunately picks players based on there name and wages paid as opposed to recent performances. Maybe Bruce should become England manager as is sounds all to familiar.

In order for AVFC to rise again, we need a clear blueprint on what we want to become. Football has changed whereby the championship is following the same suite as the premier league . Whether it be Man City, Tottenham, Liverpool etc In the premier league or wolves, Bristol City etc in the championship . The top teams play relatively attractive football . That is with the exception of Cardiff, however they have a team of fighters that we don’t

Personally I’m sick of handing over my hard earned cash to watch the most boring games of football I have ever seen

Football is entertainment and we pay to be entertained .

I would be happy to stay in the championship for a couple of seasons to get our blueprint right, as it bothers me that if we go up, we may well come straight back down as we presently don’t have a real identity in how we play

I would without doubt go for a younger manager and would be happy with any of the following

Dean Smith
Lee Johnson
Paul Heckingbottom

I don’t care if anyone says the job is too big for them, we’re not a big club anymore

It’s only my opinion guys and no doubt some mate be critical but hey is a banter website.

Agree with some of your points but end of the day if Bruce hadn’t put Jedinak as cb instead of Elphick that mistake wouldn’t of happened. The point I was making was that Brentford and Dean Smith have spent peanuts, didn’t win there first 8 games and thrown away the most points from winning positions and they are right behind us, says a lot about the progress under Bruce.

I take it all in Young Kenneth and again can understand yours and other frustrations but our club needs stability that's all I'm saying mate but if anyone wants to know the January sales are on and if you got any Blue nose friends then Dunelms are doing buy one get one free on bed sheets 😚😚.

I think I'm correct in thinking Dean Smith is a Villa fan? I'm sure we pay our back room staff more than the Brentford managers position? ( i guess WTW will no doubt advise) . Why not offer Smith a senior role in the 1st team with the proviso, if he succeeds he's considered the main role? I know we've got Agnew, but in my opinion, get rid of Calderwood as I can't see what he's adding.

Well it’s just an opinion bob but people are fee to disagree

It’s all well and good winning but I want to enjoy watching a game of football as opposed to falling to sleep.
