Aston Villa haven't taken 11 points from 15 games since long before Aston Villa Review began, but that's exactly what new manager Steve Bruce has achieved since taking over. Okay, so it's in the Championship, but that's no guarantee of anything. Saturday's 2-1 home win over Blackburn Rovers was Villa's third under Bruce, and takes them up to 14th.

In this week's show Chris and Steve talk about Villa's latest win and the current state of play, and discuss their wishes for the Villa Park redevelopment that Tony Xia teased last week. Filled-in corners? Not for us, thanks. And, of course, we talk about the supporters' relationship - such as it is -with midfielder Ashley Westwood.

    • Tro, you can say that he underestimated the job etc, but that doesnt explain things like taking off 2 strikers and putting a right midfielder up front or going 2 goals down before half time and not changing anything until the 80th minute. These are the decisions of a man who is floundering because he doesnt know what to do - and its his obvious signs of being overwhelmed that tell me we need to move on.  No amount of time is going to fix SB
    • A week off from Villa for the pain to subside- only for it to arrive again like stomach cramps after a dodgy curry. 0-2 Rams. 
    • My next Ranieri inspiration was going to be hanging the pizza menu in the back of the net.... OT but sacking him is the most ridiculous thing in my football fan life. Football will never be like it was no matter how much we wish it would. 
    • Almost certainly not- though in hindsight it would have been money better spent than our transfer policy so far. 
    • Put the fixtures in the relegation thread, they've got reading and Ipswich next, a lot of the other teams down there have got each other so will get points, they could out shit us
    • TRO.  I think you and I see things similarly.   With one big exception.  Based on the above you attribute the culture to new players coming in thinking they have it made.  I think the culture of complacency was here before they arrived, and was caused by the neglect of the owner.  I think we have been getting captains and leaders and workers so that they would change the culture, but instead they are just joining in the culture.   My fear, is that by tolerating poor results from the manager, the current management feeds the culture of complacency by continuing to communicate that crap results are acceptable.  The management of neglect by tolerating poor results feeds the problem.  
    • Pure madness. League 1 here we come
    • Each one will be explained away as the work of one lone individual with mental health issues.  There will be no connection drawn, at least in the mainstream media, between tbe batshit crazy racist shite spouted by the orangeman, and real deaths.  Although the connection is there for all to see.
    • Laursen was our last goalscoring defender, we looked dangerous at time with Clark, Collins and Dunne but never really enough to seriously threaten opposition  as for goalscoring midfielder, from open play its been a long time. maybe since Hitzlsperger or Hendrie was in the team. I know Milner, Young and Barry got a good few goals but seemed like a good few was penalties or set-pieces
    • Which to me points to poor coaching and management as opposed to the players being shite
