    Another who gets rewarded for failure. have a shit run of games, 1 goal in 20 odd appearance, make zero impact on games? here you go Gary, sign another 1 year deal.

    That's makes sense. Bruce is doing a good job of managing us overall. Maybe its easier and less disruptive to look at who's coaching them.

    Personally I think the complacency and lack of effort that has dogged us for 6 years is still here, there's no incentive here, the players are already very well payed, 50/60k a week in the championship, we reward under achievers with new contracts.

    Get mike phelan in as coach - he has worked well with Bruce and with United and is a more attack minded coach - calderwood had never worked with Bruce and takes the coaching - it hasn't worked - both too negative as defenders - if Bruce stays then his coaching staff needs to be changed with more attack minded coaching coming in ..

    Dudevillaisnice for manager! To be honest it's so plainly obvious that these suggestions make perfect sense, at least to us simple fans, why can't our highly paid manager and his highly paid team of coaches see it. I hope the man paying the wages can see it.

    Hi all The way I see it there are now three options 1, Bruce leaves at end of the season - yes he has steadied the ship but the football is rubbish and why does he play players out of their natural positon? 2, Bruce leaves at the end of next season (as we won't go up playing like we have this season) 3, Give Bruce the Summer and 10 games into the next season and if not in top 6, Bruce should leave I have seen so many scrappy games that we have won by virtue of a good 45 minutes then by only hanging on for the other 45 minutes. We have never truely dominated any opposition. My thoughts yesterday watching the results coming in was particularly the Leeds Norwich game. How many times have Villa won this season after being a goal down? Can any of us really see Villa battling back as leeds did yesterday from 0 - 3 down to get back to 3 - 3? I was on the fence with Bruce, I think he is a genuine guy, but yes his track record of getting teams out of this league is good, but perhaps modern football and tactics have moved forward and passed and overtaken Bruce now. There was a Guardian article about Bruce quoted elsewhere and it was really an opener to read... Oh well rant over! All the best VTID Derek

    Was watching this before the blues game and was thinking the same thing. It was like the kind of thing you do with your mates when you're just having a kick around and someone takes a turn in goal.
  9. Football Manager 2017

    So definitely the longest time I have spent preseason. Started in France so I could get the earliest start and have paid attention to a lot of detail. Couple more friendlies an a Italian cup qualifier before the season gets started. If this doesn't work then I must just plain suck at this but after some research it world indeed appear I wasn't paying enough attention and taking enough time to do things properly. Will try not to bore you all with too many updates. What am I talking about, I won't try at all. ....

    It was just a bit tongue in cheek mate, I'm not one for comparing clubs. Every situation is unique.
  11. Leandro Bacuna

  12. Leandro Bacuna

    So look like Bacuna then?
  13. General Election 2017

    Tim Farron speaking well on Andrew Marr Show about opposing the government, shame about the whole 'sin' saga.
  14. Leandro Bacuna

    Hard to say, I don't see these academy players anywhere. And those that make cameos up in the first team look typically either terrible or non-existent.
  15. Leandro Bacuna

    He's shit where ever he plays to be honest, fail to see the point in him, genuinely believe an academy player would be just as 'effective'.
  16. Nathan Baker

    Well put! Very hard to defend indeed.
  17. Leandro Bacuna

    Ok, but many other do.
  18. Nathan Baker

    Indeed , it was just such a careless pass though it's hard to defend .
  19. Leandro Bacuna

    I don't dislike him, i just think he's shit
  20. Nathan Baker

    He's played well overall to get off so lightly around here after that one.
  21. Leandro Bacuna

    Exactly. He shouldn't start when everyone's fit (fault the manager, not the player), but is a very versatile player. And I agree, it seems players and managers like him, unlike people around here.
  22. Nathan Baker

    Pathetic and careless mistake - no excuse for that sort of error - needs a complete bollocking and to be left out on Sunday.
  23. Steve Bruce

    They were doing this thing which involved only the midfielders and forwards, where they had to play a sequence of quick passes around the edge of the box and then feed one of them to have a shot - ping ping ping throughball shot. Words cannot describe how shambolic it was.
  24. Nathan Baker

    A horrible mistake yesterday, let's hope it was a one-off.
  25. The "Witton Lane" Boxing Chat Thread

    It's proper cringe.
  26. The "Witton Lane" Boxing Chat Thread

    Was hoping for a heel turn where he lays out Eddie Hearn. Joshua is a marketing dream and I don't enjoy his PC persona that is obviously coached. Great fight, Klitschko had him and had he pressed him in the 6th it was probably game over.
