Forget the manager for a minute, with Green and Terry coming back and everyone bar Kodjia near full fitness, who would you sign in January (Realistic) and who would be making your starting 11 to drag us back into the play offs?
I'd get Ulloa, start games with:
Hutton Chester Terry Taylor
Adomah Jedinak Hourihane Green
Hogan Ulloa
Strict instructions for the wide men to hug the touchline and get crosses in non stop, Jedinak to play directly in front of the back four challenge everything in the air and screen the defense, Hourihane to get us moving forward always looking for an out ball and possible balls over the back line, Hogan to play off Ulloa always playing for knock downs/ ons and balls between the lines and any scraps in the box.

If the other team are playing to stop hogans movement in behind and playing deep, get him off and put on Grealish in a number 10 and get him to unlock their defence on the edge of their box.
If they are playing to battle Ulloa and getting physical then bring on Davis and let them deal with two physical centre forwards and isolate each centre half's let them try and defend two big men from crosses.
With a bench of Davis, Snodgrass, Grealish, Lansbury, Elphic and Elmo we should be able to adjust to any challenge, if they are answering our plan A then give them Plan B and C and see if they can cope with all that.
The season isn't over, even with Bruce in charge, if repeat the first half of the season then we will finish on 76 points, that would of got play offs in 3 of the last 5 seasons. So if Bruce goes or stays, we are still in the mix at this minute, hopefully something changes, manager or results, I don't mind, before it's too late!

Chris I Agree about ulloa but what's all this plan a plan b plan c?
Bruce only does one plan and if that fails we lose,
Have not got a problem with your team,
But the issue is who will the manager play?
Whelan will be in there I am sure,
Does not matter how many mistakes he makes he plays
It's true we have many games left but the next 2 are both must wins to get us back in play off places.
Lose these 2 and 11th - 13th could be our place position at end of day,
I don't go with this injury crisis being our problem,
Whoever plays needs to step up and show the desire needed to get results,
I don't see this with villa at all,
Bruce sticks to the same players who are not performing week to week,
Some players in the under 23s need to be used from the bench.

I agree with Ulloa for me he a must. Would like Ings aswell but only if hogan goes.
Me personally i send snoddy back hasn't offered anything and walks around thinking he to big for club.
Also send omunu back don't rate him and we have enough midfielders and youngsters who can come in.
I think we need 2 forwards to come in and maybe a cb if there is one of quality who will play each week.

I would play o'hare up top with ulloa,
Otherwise I would keep the side you picked,

28 Dec 2017 14:53:21
Mainbob the first line literally said “forget the manager” so I don’t know why your going on about he doesn’t have a plan b and Whelan will definitely play, I said who will you play. I didn’t get much further than that because you clearly missed the point but I’m guessing you want half the world beating youth team we’ve got in the first 11 before Barcelona or Madrid snap them up.

28 Dec 2017 16:00:25
Ok I got your post wrong,
As for the youth are they any worse than the rubbish on show,
Look at the championship teams and see how many play young vibrant players then look at villa,
And when I big up the young players in our under 23s I'm not talking about everybody should get a look into the first team,
Hayes, o'hare, sulaman, Clark, Murphy, are my 5 players who need to be looked at,

28 Dec 2017 17:01:53
chris the defence is al that's good about your team. the rest are useless.

28 Dec 2017 17:16:53
*Suliman. How many times have you actually seen them play? And against who? That fills you with so much confidence.

28 Dec 2017 18:52:59
Chris I agree with your team but if you are playing 2 in midfield u can't ask one to just sit and protect the back 4. Hourihane would be over ran. And to be fair I think grealish has been decent since coming back.

28 Dec 2017 19:07:42
“The rest of your team is useless” who would you pick then villajk, their our main players, shall we just give up then if their useless? Season over then. Not like most of them players don’t have us 3 points off the play offs without playing to their strengths. And you can easily have a midfielder screen the back four in a two and not get over run, he wouldn’t be glued to the spot rich, look at Leicester with Drinkwater and Kante (albeit kante has the legs), Watford did it for a while last season, Burnley do it regular, we’ve done it in the past under MON. I’d like to get jack in the team but then you either have to sacrifice the wide men or play one up top, which personally I don’t think either would work. Going 3 at the back would fit wide men, 2 up top and grealish in a 10, but I don’t think we have the overall squad to do that.

28 Dec 2017 21:38:14
He is glued to the spot tho. We havnt got a kante.

29 Dec 2017 08:57:00

I have seen the under23s play many times this season
, so how many times have you seen them to disregard sullaman as a decent player?
I prefer watching them to our first team,
So that's your answer!

29 Dec 2017 09:29:28
You can’t even spell his name that’s how many times you’ve watched them.

29 Dec 2017 12:05:47
Picking faults mate!
