I'm just putting this out for villa fans reaction,
If Bruce does not get the wins over Christmas to keep us in the play off zone and stoke sack Hughes would fans like to see Hughes replace Bruce?
Interesting debate!

Agree1 Disagree1

I'm just putting out this Hughes debate because of my grandson who is a stoke supporter and asked me this question last night,
I'm not a Hughes fan myself but just some think else to debate on.

22 Dec 2017 10:24:16
No - debate over.

22 Dec 2017 13:09:49
Fair enough!

22 Dec 2017 14:15:15
Yes, but not likely


22 Dec 2017 17:10:08
So you are the only one in this debate then Chris?
Mainbob, good question from your grandson, but tell him not for me mate, if it had been Sean Dyche the answer would be yes.

I wanted dyche years ago,

If Bruce was to get sacked. (if! )

Hughes is the sort of guy we would need, tough, no nonsense, and connected.

But, no championship experience, either as a player or manager. To me that’s crucial.

So yes would love him, if we got promoted, but if we don’t, Sean Dyche would be my dream guy. although we have more chance of gabby finishing top scorer, and European player of the season.

If we are not promoted at the end of this season, for me Brucie will be sacked by the good Dr

Question is who would you replace him with, Mark Hughes would not be the man I would go for

I said this before Bruce was approved appointed, but If it was down to me I would be looking at lee Johnson of Bristol City (subject to Bristol not gaining promotion)

22 Dec 2017 23:21:36
Yes Dave, everything comes down to my decision, call me trump if you want.

Joking aside, why would you replace a failing manager with another failing manager? What has Hughes done to make you think yes he’s the man to take us up, other than getting stoke to pass the ball rather than hoof it his record is non existent. If it were Dyche or Howe then you could see the point, but their clubs won’t let go of them to someone below them. Would you replace Bruce with Pulis, would you replace Bruce with Steve clement, I really don’t see how the thought could cross your mind. Bruce has one of if not the most (I haven’t checked) promotions from the championship and has us in the play offs with the worst injuries in the league, Hughes has never even managed in the championship let alone been promoted, he’s never really achieved anything decent as a manager despite be in control of very decent teams (Blackburn and Man City) and he’s ok the verge of being sacked, so on that basis not in a million years would I take him as manager to replace Bruce at this very moment. I can’t find one positive.

If we don't get promoted this year then we're in the last year of parachute payments, so, not because of his style or cutting edge football management, but just because he knows the league and can put together a top defence, functional, no- nonsence team, you got to go tony pulis all day long, only big sam would do a better job.

23 Dec 2017 09:18:40
Just so I understand. Your saying you want Pulis? 😳.

23 Dec 2017 12:17:38
I had to read that twice as well Flackie, he’s got to be on the wind up, seriously.

23 Dec 2017 15:07:38
Why does the banter on here always ends up with a discusion on the bruce being sacked. Crippled with injuries but still fifth. one loss in the last few. Closet bruce haters. he, s the best out there for this league, his cv proves it. So what if we don't go up its not a given. He would still be our best option.
