We were awful yesterday and have been against 90% of teams anywhere near the top 6, however some of the claims being made (on here aswell) are just silly. Say what you see, point out the flaws, don't just make things up for something to say, there's already enough wrong with them.

Agree0 Disagree0

I say what I see and I can see the flaws in our team,
Shame that Bruce thinks otherwise!
Most fans can see what's needed hut nothing changes which depresses me more
Well pulis is waiting for us on Saturday and we all know how he sets teams up and Bruce needs to work out how to combat him,
Forgot Bruce don't do tactics?

What’s being made up chrisavfc?

I also say it as I see it, not through claret and blue eyes, I did that when I was in my early teens.
I honestly feel we can kiss promotion goodbye again, never at anytime did we look like winning the game against Bradford.
We have seen all the opposition now and every team with the exception of Burton do the simple things and the important things better than we do.
We have no Passing ability, no vision, lack of quality, poor movement, void of direction, and shooting ability is shocking.
There will be the fans saying I am moaning amongst other things, but I am stating facts and saying it as it is, we are nothing more than a very mediocre championship side, and at the moment I hate to say we appear to be going nowhere.
I will say it again, we have several young players available for selection who would improve our capabilities considerably, they would also be more pleasing to the eye and just maybe surprise a few sides with their vibrancy and enthusiasm.
Where is plan B Mr Bruce, the pedestrian plan A is not failing, “it has failed”.
I await the excuses for our current trend.

Well done Dave, they are facts and everything you’ve wrote can be seen week in week out. Like you said “no movement” yet people are writing about how they feel sorry for the strikers because they never get the ball played through to them, to get that sort of pass you have to make a run, you have to make some space for yourself. I’ve watched hogan for 120 minutes over the last two games and he is shocking, he might have made good runs when he first came but he does the square root of nothing anymore, so how can you feel sorry for him?! Read stuff about how Snodgrass is always at a decent level, the guy don’t even run, barely breaks a sweat, hit every free kick he’s taken for us at the wall, walks around like the top man when really he’s another one holding us back. Bruce did well to get us play offs losing key men for extended periods but now we’ve gone 5 without a win is it? And it seems like we have these periods far to regular and it will cost us. He needs a win against Middlesbrough and then he needs us back in the top six by middle of January or it could and should be game over for him.

Sadly, and it goes against every bone in my body to say this. but I agree.
Last two/ three performances have been second class. It’s not the result, although they should be better, it’s the manner of the results. No urgency, no real killer threat, our football is obvious, and easily worked out.
We have passengers in a team that can’t carry anyone.
We have players playing, because our manager likes them, rather than them being the best in that position.
We players off form, still getting in the team.
We make like for like substitutes, rather than making a change to change the game.
The formation we play, is antiquated, and painful to watch.
We don’t play to our players strengths, and then play these players out of position.
Worse of all, we are now conceding goals that are from our own making. This says that the small belief the players had has now gone.
This needs addressing sooner rather than later, if acting on now, we could still salvage something.
If we don’t, and sadly let the dinosaur continue we will continue to sink. next year we will be fighting for top half, if not relegation.

Ok well spotted Flackie, a silly mistake, Brentford.
The remarks and observations are still the same mate.

27 Dec 2017 11:55:55
I agree, post above was meant to follow!

27 Dec 2017 12:23:02
Chris, he got in amongst their backfour once last night and put the ball in the net, yes it was not allowed but with ammunition he will score, in most decent footballing sides he would score goals.
He also got behind the defence and supplied the cross for our goal.
He needs a target man up front with him and better service from midfield.

27 Dec 2017 12:39:57
Worth pointing out if we played Bradford they would probably beat us aswell.

27 Dec 2017 12:42:38
Lol 😂.

27 Dec 2017 12:46:10
Bruce likes his experienced players he has brought in but these are the players who are making all the big game changing mistakes!
Whelan keeps on making errors with piss poor passing,
Snodgrass is vastly overaged,
Jedi who I like as a footballer legs are gone like Whelan,
So I ask once again why o'hare or sulaman or Hayes can't get a look in from bench,
We have no pace in team and the build up play is snail like,
How many games has Bruce had to improve us?
I don't like seeing managers get the sack but enough is enough now he needs replacing,
Next question who?

27 Dec 2017 12:47:23
Ha ha ha. love it.

27 Dec 2017 13:02:35
What hurts me more to say is that aston villa are the worse footballing team in the championship
Have we really put any team to the sword over 90mins?
10mins here 10 mins there if we are lucky to witness.

How can people still defend Hogan. We had a large spell on top and whenever somebody tried to play that killer pass he had moved from that great position to hiding behind 3 defenders. 75%+ of balls that didn't reach him were due to his positioning or being stuck on his heels. He tries hard but doesn't provide much else. There wasn't a lack of service from what I saw and hasn't been in other games I've seen either.

27 Dec 2017 14:39:16
When he first came I’d have agreed with you Dave, he was making runs all the time and was so positive and active, but watching him not it just seems like all those runs not being found and constantly being used as a target man has just destroy his confidence, against Sheff United, he would go to make a run, then it looked like he quickly realised “these idiots aren’t going to pass it” so then he’d try move back to get it into feet and end up in no mans land and we’d lose the ball. I would like to see him up top for a good 4/ 5 games with Davis but Bruce is so scared of losing he won’t sacrifice 3rd man in the middle, and if we go two up top grealish won’t be played, not in a number 10 anyway and it seems like he’s the only one who attempts to play to hogans strengths. I for one can see why Bruce hasn’t used the youth players because at times like these when your under pressure it’s just not the done thing throughout football, you use younger players when your cruising, however now it’s getting to serious panic stations and we should see a situation like Davis starting the Norwich game, with O’hare. We are desperate for energy and some positivity going forward! And I hope Whelan isn’t anywhere near the team, working it out we’ve conceded 5 in our last 3 that we’re from individual mistakes, Whelan last night and derby is responsible for 2, he is shocking. Jedinak cost us 2 against Sheff United but he was out of position. Get Jedinak in where Whelan is, Hourihane back in there, 2 up top Davis and Hogan, O’hare on either wing and Adomah if not grealish the other. Playing Elphic last night highlighted just how stupid it was to play Jedinak at centre back, Bruce has to take the blame for stupid decisions like that! It really is time to roll the dice now, I’ll still back him to do a job if we get a win at Middlesbrough, if we don’t, and it’s the same old then you really can’t defend him anymore.

Sorry rknewell have to disagree mate.
He did not get a decent service at all, 75% of what.
He made one and put one in the net, players must look for him, if he moves he will be followed, we need the brains in the side to see and read this.

There were a couple of times he was unmarked in the channel before going missing for no reason. One specifically where jack and josh were knocking it back and forth to create space for the pass. By the time the pass was played by Jack, Hogan had started running into the middle of the 3 central defenders. You could say they took too long for the pass but if he stayed he would still have been in a good position against 1 defender rather than 3 and by moving as late as he did the pass had been played before they could change tact and ball was given away. There were at least another 2-3 times that the ball was played down the side of the defence for him to run onto and he was flat footed or just seriously outpaced. He's not the only player struggling to read the game at the moment but when that's supposed to be his primary strength he loses any credibility as there's nothing to fall back on. I still think we'll make playoffs but at the moment we're relying on a striker who's forgotten how to play and jedi who just looks lost at the moment (position changing doesn't help but he was reading everything far better before his injuries this season)

27 Dec 2017 17:51:24
Agree 100% villadave

Hogan must be pissed off making runs for the fun of it. We just end up hoofing it up to him saying “ there you go Scott make something of it”

We have no one in the middle of the park who can pick a pass or see the run.

When he was at Brentford he had woods and The ex Chelsea lad supplying him every game. Now he has Jedinak and Whelan who can’t pass wind.

27 Dec 2017 19:59:51
This is what I mean by making up faults, there’s enough to highlight we don’t have to fabricate them, we all watched the game he wasn’t “making runs for fun”.
