I accept that opinions can vary and note some comments on this site that criticism of SB is out of order. I accept that, perhaps, playing and watching football ( and supporting Villa for 60 years ) still makes me an amateur whilst SB is a professional and knows what he is doing. I accept that the long standing theory of giving youngsters their opportunities progressively and individually in an established team maybe out of date and it is better to throw in several at the same time in a team full of reserves. However, I do NOT accept that : 1. Aston Villa lose at home after fielding a team not fit for purpose. 2. And this is the most important - that the football played under the coaching that we have today only attracts 11,000 to VP !! What are you doing to our club, Mr Bruce ? Hopefully, the owner will make a decision based on this fact alone.

Shocking that he's still here, are people really happy with his style of football.

And I forgot - I accept that maybe it is because I am an amateur that I fail to understand the logic of having two right full backs in the starting 11 and ( at least ) another two on the bench !

And my apologies, I also forgot to congratulate our dynamic duo Bruce & Calderwood on managing to get yet another shot on goal. Keep up the good work gents you may manage to hit 50 before the end of the season.

We were poor in the first half, we got worse in the second half :(

Glad to be out of it to be honest. It's a great platform for some our youth to be getting more experience but a cup is not what our priority should be this season. I'm more concerned with the result on Saturday than I am with last night.

Agree with all of the above. Felt our tradition with the competition was finally squashed last night - first winners, 5 time winners, our great performances and attendances, particularly in the 70's and 90's - now all seem so hollow. And I totally accept that we are not the only 'victims' of the obsession of chasing the Holy Grail called the Premium League. Anybody have any views on Wolves attracting 1500 more fans than us to watch Bristol Rovers?

1500 more at Wolves than VP GP&U, that is the point I tried to make in a previous post. Whilst I accept that the League Cup is no longer a major competition, 11000 at Villa really worries me. I believe it is because of the style ( or lack of ) of football that we have seen since SB and then Calderwood arrived.

See my previous. Perhaps we could be the first winners of the Premium League?!? Bugger that predicting thingy...............

Must agree with Skeptica in that promotion is our only objective this season. I can agree that putting out our younger players in the League Cup is a chance for them to play and show SB what they can do, but surely SB attends the reserve games anyway (or does he?) to see for himself how they are developing. Saturdays game against a Forest with our 'first team' playing will be a better example of our development.
