That’s got to be it now.

Thanks Bruce, but go admirably, walk away with your head high, and please fall on your sword.

Personally, I would love a glen hoddle to step forward. Proper football, square pegs in square holes.

We have so much attacking players, yet try to win games 1-0?
I’d love us to just have the mentality that no matter what, we will out score you.
Keagan at Newcastle springs to mind.

Do it now villa, before the crowd totally turn on you and the manager/ team. If the attendance drops, or becomes hostile we have no chance of the playoffs let alone promotion.

Thank you Steve, but I’ve ordered your taxi.

You feeling OK flakie ha ha.

23 Sep 2018 00:46:32
Think I need a lay down.

23 Sep 2018 01:58:24
I know some times we don't see eye to eye flackie, but who would be your top 3 choices.

23 Sep 2018 09:35:44
1, glen hoddle
2, Dean Smith
3, klinsman.

23 Sep 2018 17:18:19
Well at least if Hoddle screwed up he would be able to use his old excuse that us Villa fans were just being punished by God for our sins in a former life 😉.

24 Sep 2018 17:20:46
Id go with hoddle forgot about him.

22 Sep 2018 18:16:47
The owners have to get rid we are going backwards make a statement and bring in conte or blanc or did dean smith.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 Sep 2018 20:54:24
Conte? Blanc? Sherwood? Villa4Eva
The first 2 villa would never able to get being in the Championship and as for Sherwood he is a short term impact manager if he was any good he would have gone on to do better after leaving us.
I criticised the villa performance against Brentford you and that other Aviilafan criticied my post picking holes in Bruce his tactics and the performance as then I could see the problems with our awful defence and knew what was coming you and the other person thought it was a good performance against Brentford.
Now you want Bruce out? But you didn’t after the Brentford game like I did?
I think it is you and the other one who has had to much whiskey.

22 Sep 2018 21:51:29
Are people not allowed to change their minds, or hold judgement?
What would you like? A pat on the back for condemning the club we support after 5 games of a season?

I think that first half against Brentford was as good as I’ve seen a villa side play for years.

Get over yourself.

22 Sep 2018 21:52:31
Why wouldn’t villa be able to attract conte or Blanc?

22 Sep 2018 22:53:33
Quite simply Flackie I was right and they were wrong with football if you really understand the game then it’s not hard to see the bigger picture from a so called good performance that those who thought Brentford was a good performance it wasn’t we looked ok going forward and looked like we would concede every time we were attacked.
Yes people are more than welcome to change their mind but don’t criticise someone when really deep down they know Eff all so like you and the rest get over yourselves you really don’t understand or really know the game I think it’s called fickle me I played and was a professional for Coventry City so I understand the industry and the game.
Malc what a silly question why wouldn’t they come? Blanc and Conte I won’t even waste my time responding another one who knows nothing about football.

22 Sep 2018 23:34:49

So if you were conte sat at home unemployed and the call came from villa to have a chat with the owners.

They tell him about there plans, he has a look at the facilities and the stadium and the depth of squad we have.

Looks at the league table and sees we are still well within touching distance

He gets offered approx 3 year contract at 3 million pound plus per year would you say no?

Sounding like the plank you are then you probably would.

22 Sep 2018 23:48:29
Wow. and someone of your greatness talks to us mere mortals?

You may of played, but sadly I doubt it, but being a player doesn’t give you intelligence, which thankfully you’ve proved for me.

But going through your points, proves they don’t warrant a response. I thank you for your opinion, sorry let me rephrase that, your entertainment, but it’s getting late, it’s time you let the grown ups talk.

As I said, get over yourself, or carry on worshiping your own ‘greatness’ just don’t be such an egocentric to assume your view just because you give it, is right.
Did you enjoy saying, ‘I told you so?! ’

And you imply you are a retired player, meaning a grown up?! You must be, you told us so.

22 Sep 2018 23:51:13
Any1 can say they played pro mate an too say you know more than any1 else is stupid, and why couldn't we attract blanc or conte.

23 Sep 2018 00:02:30
You sure your not a Zulu no1 cares if you played pro, bet there's loads on here who played, I used to play for Lincoln utd semi pro but does that mean I'm better an have more knowledge then any1 else no, wake up an be a realist.

23 Sep 2018 00:15:18
Why aren't you a manager then if u were that good or u just talking bs.

22 Sep 2018 18:12:44
Firstly what a goal by Maginn, absolute stunner . Just a shame that's all he did . Listened to Brucie, on the way home and agreed with most he said . We had 6-7 players today, just not on it . All. credit to Wednesday, they had done their homework and set up to suit . Brucie picks the side, but then it's up to them once on the field . The passing was rubbish, we gave the ball away all over the park . On Tuesday Kodjia and Tammy looked to have a good understanding starting . Today they where 20 yards apart and Kodgia never heid one ball up . Just to many players letting us and themselves Down today . After Tuesday, you would of expected them up for it .
Not saying I'm a Brucie fan, but the situation, the club are in at the moment, what choice have we got . When your getting rid of scouts and others in the cost cutting, how can you afford to sack managers + back room staff .
As Brucie said, a lot of players have got look and say that just wasn't good enough . Onwards &Upwards Villaforever.

Dave, he changed the team again mate, after a win, why on earth would you want to do that.
Jedinak in the side again, and again played out of position, same tactics, same time substitution`s are made.
I think the players are fed up with him to be honest and are fast losing faith in him, that maybe the reason behind these performances.
You can`t sit there sucking your thumb when things are not working, try something else and change things.
I have had it with him, nothing more to say about him until he has gone, thank him, wish him well, and send him on his way as soon as is humanly possible.

22 Sep 2018 18:27:01

Agree with your post,
The players do need to ask themselves if they did enough,
But the thing that bothers me is it's the same after match response from bruce which we have heard to often,
No tempo, passing poor, no creation,
But sacking him now how would that affect the ffp.
I think the owners will leave it for a little longer,
They must have someone in mind and I would think it is a foreign manager they want,
But I'm getting pissed off now with these poor performances more often than not,
Time to get drunk.

22 Sep 2018 18:37:56
Clearly the players have to shoulder some responsibility. However I would expect Wednesday to “do their homework” whoever they play as I would expect Bruce to do the same but it never looks like it on the pitch. If he’s given an infinite amount of time and money he will, by the law of averages, eventually hit on a winning formula but time is running out and so is the ability to sign players. 100 games and how much better are we than we were in October 2016? I’d suggest we played better football under RDM and certainly more entertaining. We need a change and it needs to happen soon whether that’s in the style or in the personnel. Time is running out!

22 Sep 2018 18:48:23
Also think that grealish is looking a unhappy player,
Does not look himself last few games,

22 Sep 2018 18:01:12
As you all know I have backed SB no end on here had countless altercations and discussions with fellow fans about him but now the time has come for me to hold my hands up and admit defeat. Today is the end for him I believe and come Monday I think he will be gone, Who do we get? God knows we need change and fast because if we don't go up this season we are in deep deep cow dung one person stands out for me and that is Klinsman tall order I know but why not? On the other hand though can we afford to sack Bruce what with FFP hanging over our heads this is one big call stick or bust for our new power men Red or black fellas your call.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Sep 2018 18:39:48
Really is a stick or bust situation now. The new owners coming in in July saved Villa but they also saved Bruce and that might be a double edged sword in the end.

22 Sep 2018 18:46:35
Hands held high Daz, fair play mate.

22 Sep 2018 19:46:09
Yeah fair play daz.

22 Sep 2018 17:18:36
We are only 5 points off the top, despite having the only manager in all divisions who would pick a centre half with absolutely no pace, if change happens now I think we could still go up automatically. So please nobody back Bruce and the owners will act swiftly, enough is enough.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Sep 2018 18:04:36
Yes and only 6 off the bottom 3.

22 Sep 2018 17:06:23
Ed. Can we have a poll, should Bruce stay or should he go (sacked)?

Agree4 Disagree0

22 Sep 2018 17:16:10

I can tell you now there will be more wanting him gone now.
Fans walking out 15 mins from the end tells you all you want to know.
Very poor day!

22 Sep 2018 17:31:34
I was surprised fans were singing his name on Tuesday night to be honest. 1 win in 7 games is not something that should be celebrated by chanting Bruce’s name, surely? Not saying I want him sacked but he shouldn’t be cheered for winning 1 game in 7?

22 Sep 2018 15:38:14
Really struggling to break Wednesday down. Lack of creativity which is surprising given the players we've got. Bolasie will surely come on at halftime. Disappointing again.

Agree1 Disagree1

22 Sep 2018 15:54:39
Well I think my bet is up the shoot!
Another very poor 1st half
Where is our tempo?
Got to do better than this surely!

22 Sep 2018 16:11:24
Think so Mainbob. Totally lacking any flair. Time for a change.

22 Sep 2018 16:16:08
Bruce needs to go were loosing too much ground.

22 Sep 2018 16:33:39
The question is: are we better than we were 2 years ago when he took over? I ‘m not sure. Every year we stay in championship weakens us more. Loans seem to be our only solution and they’re not working. I am concerned for the next 3 - 5 years. Just can’t see us getting out of this decision with current setup.

22 Sep 2018 16:37:26
Not posted for some time but can keep silent no longer. We have stood still in the division in 99 games the only game where we shone was v The Dingles when VP came alive. Please for everything that is holy show our so called manager the door. 100 games is too many and if we look at November and December fixtures we will be floundering at Xmas if this relic of football past is allowed to stay. Our squad is capable of tearing up the division if we allow them to. Please leave Mr Bruce and put everyone including yourself out of our misery.

22 Sep 2018 16:49:07
My only good news is that my bet on mcginn scoring in match has come in!

22 Sep 2018 17:05:13
Well done Mainbob. Drown your sorrows tonight fella. 100 games and stil no better than mid table but is changing things now the right thing? Honestly I don’t know where we go from here? There are no quick fixes but watching us this season has been torture especially with the players we have.

22 Sep 2018 17:19:59
Got a feeling our owners have some manager's in mind if I'm honest,
Don't know if he will be sacked now or another 2-3 games?

22 Sep 2018 12:10:12
Put a £25 bet for mcginn to score anytime 4/ 1
And a £20 bet for 3-1 win at 11/ 1,
What do you think fellow fans,

Previous text come out all ga ga.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Sep 2018 17:11:08
Well done bob on McGinn but 3-1 villa u must have to much spare cash mate.

22 Sep 2018 17:20:52
Going to get drunk on my winning now!
Great goal as well,

22 Sep 2018 12:00:20
Put a £25 bet for mcginn to score anytime 4/ 1
And a £20 bet for 3-1 win at 11/ 1,
