Bjarnsson will turn out ok in the end I think he has energy he needs our support then I belive he will get better at the moment he looks nervous to be honest as fans we are to quick to slate players if they make a mistake his trying and to me that's the main thing. Like Hogan there's quality in there we just need to get behind our players and confidence will grow. UTV.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Sep 2017 14:59:36
Walkies, man alive, players you slate i'd say are not bad, and players who couldn't hit a barn door with a shotgun you defend! (hogan being the exception-i agree if we play to his strengths he'd not let us down), i must get meself down to specsavers, because i'm not seeming things right by the sounds of it!

22 Sep 2017 11:51:33
I think there's an offer on at the moment as well; buy 1 get 1 free.

22 Sep 2017 18:53:56
Cheers champ!

20 Sep 2017 23:12:07
Very interesting that there are no demands to rid us of SB.
Has he won over the doubters following Tuesdays defeat or have we all come to realise that the Dr will not get rid as the cost would be immense?
I would hazard a guess that he had a clause built into his contract that if he was pushed he got a big lump sum.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2017 05:41:52
It's a one year rolling contract, would have to pay him for what's left so about 6 months, that's nothing in this day and age.

14 Sep 2017 19:22:26
Anybody heard Aston Villa have contacted St Etienne manager Oscar Garcia for the job? Tic tock Brucie.

Agree6 Disagree4

14 Sep 2017 20:24:10
Apparently the rumour has some substance. Talk is that if villa fail to win on Saturday then Bruce will be out.

14 Sep 2017 20:29:51
Iam going to Barnsley mate let's hope we win and they sack him anyway if not I would take a loss to be rid of Blue nose Bruce.

14 Sep 2017 21:32:31
You would take a loss to get the manager sacked - says it all about you really don't it WTW.

14 Sep 2017 22:10:46
Blimey walkies, you ever thought of working for the samaritans;i think that caring, understanding and helpful nature of yours would shine mate!

14 Sep 2017 23:09:39
Classof82 We are that bad to watch even the great peter withe an shawn teale said bruce should go last home game so are they wrong aswel? Long term I don't want Bruce anywhere near our great club we are already miles behind we can't afford to keep this guy even if he flukes a win because it will just prolong him staying and come on classof82 you can't be happy with what your watching its so borring and negative we have the best players in the league let's blow the league away play 2 upfront and have ago under bruce all you will get is let's try not to lose. Are you happy with what your watching? Sometimes you got to be crawl to be kind. BRUCE OUT!

15 Sep 2017 06:28:43
Right then walkies, any manager worth his salt knows at least a third of games you play in a season will be drosh;either because of injuries, teams using the same tactics and cancelling each other out, bad luck, or even f all luck, so unless your barcelona, madrid, united or citeh your going to put up with it, and just because you play attractive football it doesn't follow you'll win, brentford played us off the park and got a draw, in essence, if teams know each match we're going to go for it, surprise surprise they'll sit back and hit us on the break, set us up so that we're hard to break down, get the team to grind out results as a default position, so its second nature, you get a draw, boring yes, but then teams start thinking twice about playing us, then you can start building on that and start expressing yourself, but you know in your mind that if we get an injury, a sending off or are out-smarted you can just default to grinding a result out, very boring BUT very practical, i'm giving brucey the benefit here, ask yourself this, if you played Barcelona or real, would you set your stall out and play openly to get more than likely battered, or would you try to grind a result out, remember arsenal under george graham, boring boring but they won cups, and the league, later on, they started to play more openly, but playing boring and ugly was not a problem either, i'm probably wrong about this but for the sake of the club why not give him the four games and then let rip if nothing changes, yeah its a risk i suppose, but if we bring another manager in now how long will it take for him to get across his philosophy, i know you've got the camels' but either way there'd be more dramas with changing coaching personnel etc, like Villadaz says, his record isn't too shoddy!, he's still got the dressing room behind him and with a long hard season ahead, the experienced players should come into their own, come on walkies, BELIEVE IN

15 Sep 2017 08:54:40
Classof82, I'm beginning to love you I agree with you fella on all counts great post.

15 Sep 2017 14:23:08
Wow! '82 great post!

15 Sep 2017 15:57:30
Cheers for that boys, i've obviously fluked a bit of common sense between my ears for once in my life, i'm in shock now!, i'm off to lie down in a darkened room and chant some mumbo jumbo to get back to my usual sketchy self! keep the faith chaps, its going to be a roller coaster of a season ahead!
we are the twelth man!

21 Sep 2017 00:56:44
My main problem with Bruce is that he's ruluctant to put two up front. We have quality strikers, don't really understand his reticence. With some of our losses and draws, it goes down to the players. Take the Brentford game. Brentford simply ran around more, worked harder.

We've also got players missing pretty easy chances. Bruce might not have been my first choice, but you can't blame him for a players shot being blocked on the line by his own centre forward. Bruce is mixing experience with youth. He's bought a good defence for both I give him some credit.

14 Sep 2017 16:26:19
Lansbury's red card overturned!

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Sep 2017 15:31:13
It would appear that certain board members are split, doesn't look good.

Agree0 Disagree1

14 Sep 2017 10:05:08
Whys that then?

14 Sep 2017 16:39:46
I think they've started sniffing around other managers, testing the water.

14 Sep 2017 16:53:51
What makes you think that?

14 Sep 2017 22:05:22
Reports from bloggers saying we're keeping a watching brief on garcia of st. ettiene.

13 Sep 2017 13:22:44
Rumour going around bruce going to be sacked 2night an karanka fav for job.

Agree0 Disagree1

13 Sep 2017 15:12:21
Where is this so called rummor coming from?

13 Sep 2017 15:25:22
Villa10-brucie has come out and said when asked about being sacked that they'll have to ask the board, whether he stays or goes, a decision needs to be made now, because uncertainty never does anyone any good, other names being touted are pardew and guidolin (ex-swansea), it also seems steve round favours galtier, IF he does go, i'd go hoddle with sherwood as his assistant, seems its another death by a thousand cuts, we're getting like cardiff used to be, every week, something else crops up!

13 Sep 2017 15:28:35
Heard the Dr is coming over weekend for talks?

13 Sep 2017 16:14:08

13 Sep 2017 17:30:00

I like the idea of hoddle with Sherwood as his number 2,
Sherwood does work with kids well and that's what we need,
Hoddle would be a good tactics wise,
We will see after these games coming up to see where we are going.

13 Sep 2017 20:20:37
Well that should be good for the anti bruces! the amount of chances that went begging last night was unbelievable. boro didn't have an answer apart from to sit back. So how was that bruces fault if the players are not putting away the chances. Short of putting it in the back of the net himself. I believe we deserved something from that game. Had lansbury not got sent off think it would have been a win for us. I for one don't blame bruce for last nights result. Players have to look at themselves.

13 Sep 2017 22:32:31
Bang on the money Claret.

14 Sep 2017 10:10:22
Doesn't matter how we play or how many chances we create some will still blame Bruce Clarat, same was said after we had chance after chance against Hull. Against Cardiff, Reading and Brentford we were awful, some of them you can blame the tactics but if the players can't complete a pass 10yards then they have to take some blame. But the drama queens will force yet another manager out, Bring in a new one who will immediately be the messiah, after the honey moon period they will one the new manager out and the cycle will continue. Don't want to give up already but we a damned to this division for the time being, it's like some fans want to boo and want the team to under perform so they can moan, no matter how we play they blame the manager - that negativity spreads onto the pitch. It's hard when the club, the players, the manager and 80% of the fans are pulling in one direction and the rest of the fans are determined to stop us going anywhere.

14 Sep 2017 16:44:12
I think most fans want him to succeed, its the ones'at villa park who are the wildcard i reckon, hopefully the lads will go the extra to show their loyalty to the gaffer, if that doesn't do it, the sharks will start circling.

13 Sep 2017 00:51:56
Not one person can slate Bruce tonight; right tactics, right team, right substitutions how we never won tonight is beyond me what a absolute twit Lansbury is if we had kept 11 men I am in no illusion that we would have won we are not far off play offs point wise with King Kodja back now WE WILL CLIMB THE TABLE #INBRUCEITRUST.

Agree3 Disagree6

13 Sep 2017 15:28:54
Absolutely bang on the money villadaz. everything in that post is spot on and sums it up perfectly. pity bout lansbury i feel we would have got something out that game. we certainly deserved to. k.

13 Sep 2017 17:10:23
Counld have, should have, would have. All i can say is i hope the door doesnot hurt Bruce on the way out.

12 Sep 2017 15:28:28
I have to admit that I am a little concerned at the performance of our team.
Quite a lot of money spent over the last few seasons but we still fail to produce the goods, e.g. goals.

SB is like a rabbit in your headlights, he doesn't know which way to go to survive.
He has an excellent record in getting teams promoted over the last few years but is getting nowhere with our SUPER STARS!
One has to ask why?

Simply is he being encouraged (forced) into playing certain players above all others. So many have arrived with top credentials then suddenly lose form, not just one but all of them. A player comes to VP to play a certain role but finds himself in a different role. The fact that they get a bloody good pay packet mean s very little. Who am I kidding?

Either SB doesn't have the balls to challenge the people behind the doors or he is totally useless, or a bit of both.
I really wonder if our recruitment department have any idea.
Who wanted Whellan, Stoke were delighted?
If SB fails to get results then he should fall on his sword. And if this happens he should give the reasons why.

Football management seems to be a collection of people with differing demands. We don't know details of contracts signed by managers and what their personal requests happen to be when they sign.

All we know is that our team of very highly paid players lack any direction, and our manager seems to lack any fresh ideas or even old ideas.
Our season is already looking like a fight to avoid relegation rather than a top 6 place.

It's not over yet and I do believe we have the players to get the top 6 but our style and desire must prove itself.
Bruce show us what you've got and if someone is manipulating you tell them to f. off.

We want success now, be it with older players who can help our kids or by them owning the problem that we see on the pitch.
Tonight is a good place to start.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Sep 2017 01:28:14
Remember a while back we tried hard to get the then st. ettiene manager but he declined citing he would honour his contract and we ended up with that 'jack -in-the-box' remi garde, well monsieur christophe galtier stepped down during the summer and is available, i believe steve round was impressed with his record, style and ability to get the best out of what was available.

if the board push the panic button again i wouldn't be surprised if our garlic munching friend is on the short list, in fact, maybe our 'voice' on the committee -a.k.a. - WTW could ask a cheeky question to his old mate mr. wyness, and report back to the riff-raff (thats me obviously!) if he twitches at all? what do ya say walkies?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Sep 2017 07:31:33
Your joking ent you he's going to be too busy telling Wyness how he's worked it all out and it's all his fault.

12 Sep 2017 08:35:32
Lol-what was i thinking, i'm being a schmuk again aren't i! apologies for that Chris, i clearly haven't got my head in the game! i can see wyness scarpering for the exit double quick fashion with wtw on him like a pitbull! -i'd pay to see that-go on wtw, let him have both barrels fella!

12 Sep 2017 09:07:32
There will be a few of us we ask him questions between us and await hopfully honest answers there's a few things of the agenda tonight minutes will be taken I wish I could go and give him both barrels but we can't we can give hard hitting questions but that's it. In fairness he seems a nice guy but sometimes not just me but few others get the feeling his telling us what we want to here. Things on the agenda Team performance season card failure to go out on time. Loyalty card and Tony Xia some are worried about the china goverment rumours.

11 Sep 2017 00:17:42
I have been thinking of the root of the problem and I have come up with Keith Wyness. Now he was the 1 who told Dr. Tony to get Steve Bruce 2 season tickets wernt out on time this season a simple thing he couldn't get right. 3 The wait for T shirts was late again simple again 4 The wait for what the hell the loyalty sceme is after scraping Villa cash we still don't know how the loyalty sceme works. there's so many problems off the pitch and its spreading down again. I always said if you get it right at the top then it will spread down to the bottom.

I have a Villa trust meeting Tuesday so will be interesting to here Wyness views as last time we spoke he said Bruce will be viewed on results well he has the same points as RDM did and they sacked him we are so far behind already we can only hope of the playoffs 6 points from 6 games is a joke nothings changed his had time his got every player he wanted his style of play is awful our away record is the worst I have ever seen I for 1 will be asking tough questions about himself and Bruce because at the min we are a joke!

Agree2 Disagree1

11 Sep 2017 06:39:25
You should never be allowed to think unsupervised, it's dangerous.

11 Sep 2017 08:08:04
You slate every view I have surely you ent that stupid to belive this is good we are miles off the top 2 in which as got to be the worse championship in a while playing the most borring drab football and not getting results. We can't can't even get season tickets out on time or even the loyalty card set up right only people who are dangerous when they think is the Villa hierarchy.

11 Sep 2017 10:56:58
Your off your nut mate.

11 Sep 2017 22:23:47

W. t. w I bet the club doctor and tea lady, are shaking in their shoes . They are the only ones you haven't blamed yet . When your at your meetings, surly you are the one whose getting answers . I agree a lot of things are not right . we have all said, I think you included, that our squad is stronger now . We should have started improving, Brucie should be getting more out of them . Now we have the Jedi and Kodjia, perhaps we will see that improvement . As others keep saying, it's never positive what you write . I know we are Villa, but we are now in the championship . We will have a lot more disruption& change before we are back where we belong . We all feel frustrated, but at least most of us try to be positive . Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.
