I see Howard Hodgson has been getting loads of stick from Bruce Jnr on twitter.

If Steve Bruce thinks some fans are being " Hysterical " then does that mean he thinks he is above criticism?

Does it also mean he thinks he is doing nothing wrong and how dare we speak out!

After a good win, it was the ideal opportunity to get his critics back on board but instead, he foolishly attempted to rub the result in some peoples noses and in the public eye, that tactic just doesn't work.

It only re-confirms to me his judgment is flawed and he is well past his own sell-by date.

However as always with any Villa manager, I wish him well for the club while he remains in charge.

Its quite simple put your best 11 players out in a system that will win football matches and do it on a consistent basis. Have a plan B in case its not working in some games. But make sure you are getting the best out of what is available allowing for injuries. Do not tell the fans its hysteria
if your team produces a load of turgid crap for a performance especially the fans at this club who have sat through 5 years of it. The least we expect is the best effort from any team you turn out.
We expect the players to be well drilled in a system and if we lose to go down fighting that is the job you are paid to do and as is the case with EVERY manager you will be judged on results not hysteria.

I honest think Mr Bruce needs to realise that the supporter who pay their hard earned cash to come to the ground have had to watch substandard performances from over paid players for 7 years now. When there's a press conference I very much doubt Mr Bruce can come up with an excuse that at least one of the previous 6 managers (7 if you count David Odreary) have used.

Talking shyte to the supporters is I believe a bigger Insult than just shrugging your shoulders and saying "Sorry we were total shit and I would like to apologise"

7 points from 21.......

Now thats said lets see if Mr Bruce can kick it on and start a run.....

17 points from 21 would sit better with everyone, just try winning games and we can go from there.

Mentioned it in my article. Handbags at dawn really but Alex would have been well advised to keep out of it. HH hadn't been abusive, in fact his article was pretty tame and just pointing out the points tally.

He really needs to get away from this nonsense now. Just let your team do the talking Steve. No one is hysterical about anything yet, but there is (as you say) nothing wrong with expressing an opinion or two when a VERY expensively assembled squad has spent most of the last 12 months kicking around the lower reaches of the Championship.

Results are improving over the last few weeks, but I don;t think any right-thinking watcher could say the performances are any better than when he first arrived, save for a handful of examples. Good results will mask a multitude of sins.

Don't get me wrong, I want us to be winning and getting up into the promotion mix, but there will still be plenty among us worried that there is no noticeable improvement in the way we play, or in our game management.

Plus he says the majority of fans who don't sit by the dugout are right behind him and are all he's interested in. I don't see a problem here.

So the ones who are behind him are not behind him but the one's who in front of him are behind him.

I bet Dr. Tone is beginning to take notice of the attendance figures.
Under 30k for a Saturday game against Midlands rivals who are also past winners of the European Cup.

The game stats are worrying too.
Possession in the mid 30% region, at home, is a disgrace.
When Mon was here, that was his tactic and it bored the shit out of me then but, at least he had a consistent way of playing,
Under Bruce, it bores the shit out of me now even more, especially as we are more than capable of dominating teams and scoring a handful, as seen against Norwich and Wigan.

This ultra cautious 'hold on to the point we start the match with' approach, will ultimately see us relegated again.
Apart from that, as a pensioner, it costs me a weeks income to visit Villa Park and after 59 years of support I at least want to be entertained for my money. Entertaining me is easy, a bit of effort and attacking flair added to a minimum 51% of possession and I'd be happy, regardless of the final result.

"if we lose the next two then they`ll circle again"

If we lose the next two, it's not the fans you'll have to worry about Steve.
