Thierry Henry was no doubt a great player, is he a great manager? with no experience who knows but you wouldn't bring in a carpenter to do the electricians job, so why bring in a football player to do the managers job? Bruce may not be the man for the job in some people's eyes but replacing him with a novice is beyond risky.

Totally agree on Henry, he is a massive risk, certainly a "sexy" name in world football but what would he bring bar the unknown - He could be a total success but Villa don't need to gamble, they need to find a manager that can work with our current squad and help develop our young stars.

To borrow your analogy - You wouldn't ask a taxi driver to replace the engine on your car? For me Bruce is a man manager, and a very accomplished one, but Villa need a mechanic, somebody who can work with and fine turn the squad.

I agree with you both, I can’t honestly see Brucie going at the moment . whether you like him or not, Brucie seems to have a good understanding going with the team and they do appear to like him . We have had enough disruption, give Bruce half a season, to see how we start .
The new owners and DrT, will have a lot of other important decisions to sort out . Also how much would it cost, to ship out Brucie and his staff and then bring new manager + staff . Liked the statement, that any players going won’t be on the cheap, would rather Jack and didn’t go .
Same as everybody else, I can’t wait for the meeting tomorrow and perhaps more information being released .
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

You can say that Henry has no experience but on the flip side we have a manager with vast experience with the largest wage bill and the biggest squad and he couldn’t get us promoted so I don’t see it as a risk.

I think the matter of paying off bruce and all his backroom staff is not going to worry these 2 owners i reckon.
