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.

    • Basically, if he starts passing to me, I might have a ****ing chance of scoring
    • He'll be better next season, I'm sure of it.
    • This is a big season for Matt Harvey, who is edging closer and closer to irrelevance.
    • There was no intent in my view but it was that type of game where tackles were flying in all over the place and this type of thing can happen. Ref let too much go early on.
    • You're obviously more affluent than you make out!
    • Terrible terrible luck for both players. Taylor because he went full pelt for the ball and caught Coleman in the wrong place, and Coleman for obvious reasons.  Not trying to defend Taylor and pretend he did nothing wrong. It was not a good tackle - sounds like he was completely devastated and it doesn't sound like there was malice in the tackle. Just trying to be objective in that we see lots of tackles like that that sometimes people get away with it, but I think the after effect makes it worse. Best wishes to Coleman though, devastated for him
    • Not sure how UEFA works in terms of his ban, don't know if there's a precedent for extending bans due to the severity of the injury, I'd be amazed if he got more than 3 games fair few idiots on twitter calling for the fa to get involved and ban him fromleague games, simply not going to happen
    • To be fair, both players were full-blooded into that challenge. Taylor was reckless and was too slow into the challenge, which resulted in Coleman getting in first but, unfortunately, took full force of the challenge from Taylor. It looks a terrible injury and I truly hope that Seamus Coleman makes a full and speedy recovery and is able to continue his career the way it was going because - and I mean this sincerely, not because of tonight - he is one of my favourite modern-day footballers. He plays full-blooded and seems to play his heart out every game. Hopefully, that level of spirit will help him through this terrible injury.
