After the awful summer that we all endured I think the team has taken shape remarkably well, we have managed to hang on to our key players along with some exciting additions so I would go as far as to say that we have a stronger squad than last term. We certainly will be far more dynamic if the squad clicks and much of this is down to our new owners who have taken hold of our wilting club and breathed new life into it, so for that we are forever grateful as for a short time things were looking really grim.

Along with that, we have this time gotten off to a reasonable start and we are well positioned for a serious challenge, so given that last season we only just missed out on promotion there really is no excuse for us not to go one better this time around.
I may have trodden on a few toes over the past few weeks with some of my outlandish comments but they were never intended to be personal, I just had a belief in Bruce along with a certain amount of sympathy for his personal loss last season so I was determined to show my support. I understand that he is not everyone's cup of tea but rarely does any club get that privilege.

So if I have upset anyone along the way please accept my apology it was never my intention to do so, we all share the same goal for the club even though our opinions may differ from time to time on a variety of issues. Sometimes our emotions do get the better of us because after all we are all passionate followers of the club.

So here's to a fantastic season ahead lads and I hope we can all enjoy it whoever is destined to lead us, there will be the usual ups and downs as always but I hope we can finish it with huge smiles on our faces. We have the squad, we have the owners, we have the fan base and hopefully we have the right manager in place too, but if not then I'm going to be eating humble pie for a very long time, so for the time being it's over to you Mr. Bruce and the very best of luck.

Fair play AVilla fan, only a handful ov games gone, some ov these so called villa fans donโ€™t relies, get behind villa, loads ov games left, they donโ€™t understand the mess we was in 2mnths ago, they are so fickle, up the villaโšฝ๏ธ.

I echo villafans post well said my man,
I'm not a bruce fan which everybody knows but I have got behind him but last night was a really poor game and result which I went to and I had a go at bruce for his comments after game when he criticised all the players yet 8 of them were his signings,
We all wants best for our great team,
Some want a new manager others want bruce to finish the job and get us promoted,
I personally think in my opinion we need a new progressive coach to taken us to the next level.
His tactics are dated.
But this is just my opinion and and long as we go up that's all that matters,

Twincannock its not a handful of games, its 60 or 70 - That is a fair barometer to judge the success of a manager, would you agree?

AVillaFan, great post and fair comments - Nobody can argue that Bruce hasn't hard a torrid time of the past 12 months and while personally I believe he has taken us as far as we can go, as you say, we all need to get behind the club and roar the team to promotion.

Polls was done before start of season and the majority backed bruce infact every poll done they backed Bruce so that tells you a thousand tales the fickle ones will moan regardless even if we was top of the league but playing bad football. Moan for the sake of it makes you look silly IMO. Stats prove so far that we are in the top 5 of everything passes made shots made etc etc. Still people will moan if we had the best manager in the world because he don't pick certain players. On certain players ie youth do all the ones who moan about not playing them go to the training sessions and see what goes on there? No I didn't think so are you their in the changing rooms? No i don't think so. So back the team give up with your moaning and whinging and we will go far this season.

Only a handful ov games this season, yes 60-70 under Bruce I agree, but did Bruce start with a handful gone after that rubbish Italian gad done damage with his signings which we still canโ€™t get rid ov, plus Richards from Sherwood is still Milking us drie, letโ€™s get behind villa.

29 Aug 2018 15:14:19
Yeah right we will go far you must be joking it's not about being fickle sum of villa fans have had enough of his awfull play an stoneage football, I always support my team an want us to win no matter who is in charge, but me like most villa fans I speak to have had enough of him it's been 2or 3 yrs an that's easily enough to get out this league, people have a right to moan we go too games or watch at home or what ever so wots wrong with that it's not moaning or being fickle, at all its just most people can see what's going on and it's not good.

Villa daz ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.

29 Aug 2018 15:26:27
Sorry twin cannock that was ment for villa daz.

Agree 100% villa4eva.
Letโ€™s look at the facts.
Bruce has the best squad
Bruce has the highest wage bill
Bruce has brought his own players in that he wanted
His even had one of the easiest starts to the season regarding the fixtures where 3 of the 5 teams are in the bottom 6.
No exscuse whatโ€™s so ever, the bloke is a dinasour regarding his tactics and philosophy playing players out of position and relying on the same old guard.
Tell you know if we are not in the top 3 by start of December he will be gone.

Iโ€™m pretty sure that the starting 11 is all of brucies signings plus hogan so donโ€™t sprout that crap about having to deal with di matteos signings.

Villa4eva did you not see the state we was in before Bruce took over you are so blinkered its untrue hahaha. Just look at Leeds Blackburn Forest Charlton and so on all been in the PL and all have failed because of bad man management its took Leeds over 5 years to get where they are today from being relegated yet you and so many others on here think we have a god given right to be in the PL hahaha but guess what we don't haha so take your claret tinted glasses off and think long and hard before you post because I will lose you son hahaha.

29 Aug 2018 16:05:28
BK 60 or 70 games is enough to judge yes I agree with you there. Getting from the brink of relegation to play off final in my eye is a success IMO plus we are lucky to have a team to support and a manager that cares and is not in it just for the money. Short memories and all that springs to mind.

29 Aug 2018 18:45:33
Leeds didn't spend the money we have fact, leeds didn't have biggest wage budget aswell fact, but leeds have a worldclass manager an done more in a few months than bruce has done in 3 years, yes he steadied the ship big deal that's his job he's post to do that, so we stick with bruce again and he fails, again ul be saying stick with him again, don't you think it's time to get some 1 better who can squeeze 120 percent out these players bruce can't sqeeze a sponge let alone get the best out this team take play off final how did we set up an how long did it take him to make changes 65 mins in final when any other manager would of changed when fulham scored, but instead of setting up to attack we tried to steel the game by being negative, didn't you hear fulham captain at the end saying football won in the end
