Just heard on radio king and Bernstein have quit. What the hell is going on?


1.) 18 Apr 2016 16:47:44
Just seen this and am as shocked as you- I think it may be due to Lerner not investing for next season but I certainly hope not.

2.) 18 Apr 2016 16:50:28
Your ears playing tricks!?

3.) 18 Apr 2016 17:13:40
Just seen on SSN I'm wrong- it's because Hollis is in 'extensive negotiations' to sell the club!

4.) 18 Apr 2016 17:45:28
the new manager could be anybody now depending who takes us over hope they are loaded.

Looks like Bruce has found a winning system at the moment

So who next for the cursed left wing slot. is it Amavi playing on the wing or bring in someone from the youth?

Or change formation?

Keith Wyness on BBC WM

very good listen. very positive stuff.


1.) 24 Feb 2017 22:13:41
I can't bear to listen to the numbskulls on there (particularly the presenters)
Could you summarise what he said?

2.) 25 Feb 2017 01:02:20
He basically said Dr Tony is here for the long haul, we need 3 teams 1 to get promoted 2 to stay in PL and 3 to push for top 4. Said when in PL will increase capacity with talks already with council and road infrastructure being only issue. Will stick with SB who will be here next season, can't carry on changing managers and squads. Said financial fair play will not be an issue when back in PL. no one can quite fathom how these amazing Championship players perform at Bodymoor and then can't win despite match stats being excellent! He was full of praise for fans with the owners predicting 15k season tickets for this season and 25k crowds amazed got 20k and over 30k crowds! Sure we will get result to put a last ditch run for this season but no promotion now, that's for next season. Vila are part of Dr Tony's business empire and he loves the club! Sounded all genuine and optomistic.

3.) 25 Feb 2017 09:41:34
Everything you'd expect to hear to keep the fans happy; the club is in safe hands, Tony isn't going to get bored, every eventuality / outcome has a plan, Bruce will be manager at the start of next season no matter what. Would love to believe him but can't believe anything these modern day football men say, hopefully he's honest and sincere but just look at Leicester.

4.) 25 Feb 2017 09:53:17
Steve Bruce is staying at the football club no matter what even if we go down which they're not thinking about. Keith wyness said there's no problems with the players everybody gets on in training and work really hard and they just can't put their finger on what is going wrong at the moment. Keith wyness also said it was probably a mistake bringing 7 players in January to much to soon.

financially we will be ok even if we don't get promoted he has planned for us to be in the championship four or five years financially. But hopes we are not in there that long. Dr Tony is at the club for The Long Haul no matter what league. We will have to be careful what we spend in the championship financial fair play rules mean we can't keep spending huge amounts but if we get in the premier league we can spend what we like!

5.) 25 Feb 2017 09:54:47
Keith Wyness = pinch of salt, spoke to a few toffees and all say he is always positive - a good thing, however, he'll say what you want to hear to keep the waters calm, when it suits, hope though he's on the button about keeping bruce at the helm and giving him the extra time and latitude he needs, but mat kendrick seems to think one or two in the heirarchy aren't so steadfast-but there again, kendrick likes a bit of mischief!

6.) 25 Feb 2017 11:21:01
Thought that was a good point that with hindsight perhaps too many debuts in January and Feb. We all knew from previous windows needs time but with the signings who would have done anything different. Hindsight is a wonderful thing! Predicting 1 nil to villa todayUTV.

7.) 25 Feb 2017 13:40:02
Thanks for filling me in gents. All sounds pretty standard corporate stuff to me.

8.) 25 Feb 2017 15:20:12
Stay positive lads we got good people in the background. hope we can get something from today's game. come on the villa.



05 Feb 2017 08:48:19
Didn't get to watch the match (due to promising the wife a day out) but from what I've seen the 3-5-2 could be promising

Hogan looked good, I think the system will work well with jedinak in the midfield giving that defensive element and allowing other the freedom to get forward

And just a thought, maybe Micah Richards back in the defence instead of elphick?, I know his positioning and decision making is poor however as a three this could be covered better and maybe work well? He does have some good attributes like his speed and power plus heading is good. just a thought.




04 Feb 2017 08:30:57
Right then!

For me the season starts now, this is the time to assess Brucie and his team, he has made whole sale changes and that will take time, let's hope they click and gel sooner rather than later

Forget about what has gone on before or the last 5 or 6 results, it's from now where we hopefully start to see something great being built, let's look and discuss the tactics and team selection rather than go off on one and slaughter everyone if we lose

I don't think it's too late to make the playoffs but wil need a spectacular run of games to do, so for me its back Brucie to get it right and give him time to do so even if it is in the same league next season.


1.) 04 Feb 2017 16:30:06
Has to be a win tonight or we can forget about the playoffs
We have enough quality and firepower now. It's just a question of whether they can be gelled together as a functioning unit.
I feel that may be our undoing as far as promotion goes but you never know.



26 Jan 2017 17:46:40
Team for next game picks itself for me

Bree, Chester, Baker, Amavi
Adomah, Lansbury, Hurihane, Bjarnason

Plenty of goal threat from midfield to support Kodja


1.) 26 Jan 2017 18:43:45
Same as mine Woz.
Bunn, Hutton, Elphick, Tshibola, Grealish, Green, Ayew, The bench

2.) 26 Jan 2017 19:54:00
Good looking team Wodzvilla
in some games Bruce will rest Jednak and throw either Grealish or Ayew in with Lansbury dropping deep. All looks good

3.) 26 Jan 2017 19:56:49
Grealish unfortunately won't make the top grade due primary to inconsistentcy. One game on fire the next off the boil

It happens to me all the time. bloody gates!

I thought he was getting a raw deal but with that lot going on seems we need to get rid!

I won't be surprised if the Rhodes deal is still being worked on in the background and gets completed mid week. unsure if he is the answer but got to be better than what we currently have!

And fingers crossed his gates are serviced regularly!

If it meant getting back into the prem I would sell my soul to the devil. would be a great move if it did come off

Exactly the type of player we need

I agree mendax, we need to invest in a number 10 player a young and fit Joe Cole type. Also another forward player who can finish, Gabby is at best a squad player and Weiman is just not good enough, works hard but very wasteful. Zog is a complete and utter let down every game, time to give Grealish a run also Bacuna looks lively and should get a chance

I agree Mendax

Totally out of luck, but then again you make your own luck
Only caught second half but Kodja=wasteful

I think if we can get a lucky win then we will then kick on and get a few points in the bag to be safe enough

Get through this nightmare and give brucie a preseason to bring in a few needed faces ready for next season!

Maybe as part of a back three he could cope

I would go

Richards, chester, baker
Bacuna, Lansbury, Jedinak, houraine, amavi
Hogan Kodja

Bacuna only if Bree is not fit.

He is so frustrating, has class moments but a lot of the time he his poor

For me he is not direct enough and slows things down to much, I think the word luxury player comes to mind, would be great if we were smashing teams 3/ 4 nil but were not, when games are tight and physical he is no use.

I think Bruce will make us a good solid team that will be hard to beat, he has a track record of getting out of this league

To do that he must be given time to build it rather than shot down, yeah he doesn't play sexy football but who would you suggest we get to come in and work wonders from day one?
