    Dean Smith

    When the beat us last year at VP i wished he was our manger so i happy with this. Was a bit distracted by the Henry media show but think in many ways this might be more suitable, especially if his team coming and JT. Good luck Dean, please stick to your footballing philosophy, you got my support

    New Manager Speculation

    Or how about an american football type setup, JT on defense, TH on forwards and ian Taylor on midfield duties? Sorry, getting silly now

    If there is any truth in the JT and TH combo, they get on and feel they can work together and we put a solid structure around them then lets go for it... brave new world at villa. Might all go t*ts up but cant get much worse than how we are at present can it?

    If its experience we need i know a bloke thats got tons of it. 4 promotions as well. His record speaks for itself (so he says)

    More i think about Rogers as manger less I think i want him. Didnt really do it when it mattered at Liverplop and lets be honest Celtic is not the most challenging job, done well domestically but hasnt done much in Europe... also if he has said he would prefer a prem team then **** him, dont want him if he’d rather be elsewhere and we are his second choice. Comes across as very sulky as well to me, had enoigh of that with Bruce... strikes me he perhaps thinks he is better than his record shows.

    Cool mate, absolutely - lets see what happens. I hoping for someone progressive thats all, happy to give Arteta or Henry a try but equally wouldnt be suprised if we end up with Moyes it seems the way it goes with Villa. Just enjoying the chance however slight that this might be that time we might find our Nuno or Pep.

    @One For The Road you keep saying you are “telling it like ot is”. In truth however you are on a forum speculating with others and unless you are ITK your really have no idea how it is same way as the reat of is. Chill out a bit with the shouting down of people enjoying alittle hope.

    Steve Bruce

    Yes. I would prefer any tempory situation other than SB as manager

    Steve Bruce

    What anoys me most is that bruce is lowering and has been lowering expectations ever since he’s been here, i’m sick him and his self preservation retoreic. So much so that i now almost dont care if we win or loose, i want some hope but instead i just feel apathy!

    James Collins

    Didnt like the way he and dunne apparently were with Hollier when he was manager. Bit of a word removed by all accounts. Would rather we didn't bring him in but if he and chester works well together then maybe.

    Steve Bruce

    In his interview he said the bit about having two up top and being something he’s wanted to do for a long time but hasnt been able to. I dont rememeber us doing this when we had all the strikers avaialble. Is it me with selective memory or steve? Also notice how at that point he starts scratching the side of mouth, commanly interpreted as an indication of deception, that or covering the mouth or scratching nose is a comman gesture if lying. Or maybe he wasnt, i just have an interest in psychology and asses to much. What really gets me though is his insistance to verbally shut down any critisim of him as soon as someone even dares to question him. He is very derogatory about critics, calling them mad. Which in Collymore’s case is very insensitive in regards his mental health issues over the years (if it was aimed at him and no matter how much of a nob he is) please just leave, so bored of the whole steve bruce show now.

    So hope thats the case. So bored with SB and his team right now. Apart from the physio i look at our bench and see SB and all the coaches we have sitting there and think what the **** are they doing each week back at BMH, cos its not happening on match day... unless they are specifically training to look disjointed and like they have no idea. Just some sort of atempt at a way of playing, an identity would be ao refreshing. Move on SB amd take all your staff as well

    Tammy Abraham

    Looked very fruatrated most of the game, swinging his arms around when passes didnt reach him or balls just flew past/over him. Probably wondering whats has he let himself in for. With some tactics and strcture in place reckon he could be scoring plenty

    Elmo gets ball wide, crosses, attack over. Repeat repeat, repeat. What did el gazi do they get replaced by him? Beuce Out

    Axel Tuanzebe

    Even if that means they make sloppy passes that lead to goals being scored against us?
