TIM SHERWOOD?? THAT WOULD be beyond desperate...he landed us with the jordan trilogy plus the other rejects...that went well, yes?


Not defending Sherwood, but I dont think he had any say whatsoever in the Jordan trilogy, or any of the other rejects. He was told they were being signed like it or lump it. Ayew when played properly looks desireable next to some of the rubbish weve now got.

yeah very debatable who made the signings with Sherwood but that Adama was his I think which was possibly the worst of the lot.

Anyone who wants Sherwood back needs their head checked.

Well I suppose every manager has the odd ricket in the transfer market Martin mind you he's getting a good tune out of Lowton though.


Amazing the players we got rid of and replaced with worse !

This isnt a knee jerk reaction after two games....I have stayed away as I didnt want to clash with ya'll due to my unhappiness with Mr Bruce. The easiest thing in the world is too constantly criticise. It becomes boring after a while. His management of Villa is dire in every way possible, he has turned decent players to muck, his style of play is school boys kick and rush rubbish, shambolic, nice guy but imho we are going nowhere with him...... but but but he got promoted 4 times and we need to stick with him etc.... not for me. I havent a clue where we go from here but he is not going to lead us to any such glory or promtion. More frustrating times ahead. Breaks my heart to see us constantly like this, Bruce is not the answer, he is the question. UTV.

Who do you want if it happens Fulford?
What about Karanka he's available and certainly has the ego and bloody mindedness for the job got a raw deal at Boro for me.

I'll put my hand up and say yes, I have been on Bruce's case well before the end of last season and I strongly dislike doing it!

I don't think I have ever been so negative towards a manager and Villa in general and as a positive person it goes against the grain but quite simply enough is enough.

I mentioned Sherwood deliberately. He might not be at the front of the queue of desirables, but give me a choice between Tim and Bruce, I'd go for Tim. Tactical genius compared to Bruce, and does know something about coaching and team preparation.

One huge failing of Bruce is that this pre-season was a complete waste of time. Not once did we see a line-up likely to resemble anything that he puts out. No chance for players to work together in a competitive match. No sign on the field of any of the hard work put in. He has no system as such. Where things have worked it's been down purely to the experience of the players.

Limited manager. Had his chance to show something different and hasn't. Time to move on.

I was one of the ones who thought Bruce would get us out of the mess we were in, but so far he's been as inept as the previous 4 or 5 managers who preceded him.
Early days, but a bad defeat at Reading and I see the fans 'turning'.
The 5,000 who travelled yesterday should be given free tickets to a match of their choice...at 'the minute' that probably wouldn't be one of ours!!

I don't think I have ever been so negative towards a manager


Mine was Lambert. Didn't want him, didn't like what I'd heard about him. Didn't like his attitude once here, didn't hear anything good from people at the club once here, didn't like his coaching bullies and I could not wait to see the back of him.

I know I was in a small minority when he came saying it and as you say, being a positive sort of person, it goes against the grain doesn't it?

But then, being positive doesnt' mean being foolish or a mug and what we are seeing now, there isn't a positive spin.

I guess we can but hope some miracle happens in the next few games and everything becomes rosy in the garden.

If it helps at all, which I doubt, he's not a bastard of a bloke, he's a good guy, wants the best... just might not be able to deliver it (whereas some of the people in the game are utter utter ****s!)

Can't understand how we continually get it so, so wrong, and so badly. O'Leary, MoN, Lambert, Eck, Sherwood, Bruce, Garde. We are due a good appointment even if it's a fluke. It's hardly that much better in the transfer market. I'm sure somebody has put a curse on us and kept quiet about it.

Win at Reading and all will be rosy in the garden again. We need to give Bruce a bit more time . The injury situation is getting to crisis point .
Bruce has a proven track record at this level so I don't think he is the core problem.

There's enough pikeys at the sty so it's bound to be one of them.
