  1. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Why do people think we aren't capable of a good run of results? Since Bruce has been here yes we've had poor runs but also good ones. Last season it was something like 7 wins in 8 around Feb/march(feel free to correct as going off memory) and this year before last weekend we were top over the last 8 games( gameweek 7 to 15). I'm aware I'm being a bit selective here but I'm not trying to argue the likelihood of it happening just that we are very much capable. 30 games to go people, it's all very much still to play for.
  2. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Even without Terry we're well capable, it might encourage bruce to be more positive and play on the front foot, but we've been decent defensively since Bruce arrived anyway, I think our fortunes will be decided on how well we do at the other end of the pitch tbh. Fwiw I don't think it's likely we'll make top 2 but we're certainly still well in the mix, just need to put a run together and Bruce's results have been a bit streaky.
  3. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    If we're going to get top two we need a big run of wins, I think if we get up there we'll take some shifting. I don't think the points are that important at the moment, maybe be I'm being naive but Wolves aside I don't see any of the teams that have more points than us maintaining form and getting second, I think they'll all fall away at some point leaving space for whichever one of us/Middlesbrough/Derby hits the best form over Christmas.
  4. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Our squad depth is going to be vital. None of jedi kodjia grealish Lansbury Taylor green in that starting 11,(some have been missing large parts of the season) all were starters last year and we look stronger not weaker for it. Yet Preston have some injuries and they don't look the same team. We should really kick on over the next few months as the injuries start to stack up.
  5. The "Witton Lane" Boxing Chat Thread

    Great fight.I hate the about of "robberies" that have been called recently but that 118-110 scorecard is just ridiculous. BJS fight was seriously boring. And Callum Smith looks like he'll struggle against better opposition. Had it much closer myself.
  6. Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Middlesbrough

    First half against 10 men was difficult viewing, no one committing at all. Second half positive subs adomah in particular had real impact (why he isn't starting only Bruce knows) only to get shoved to right back after 20 mins. Lansbury 10/10 for being a complete and utter moron. Looked better second half but ultimately 0-0 with 60 mins against 10 men is a poor poor result, especially when for 45 mins of that we didn't even look interested in scoring. I'm done with Bruce, that first half was the final nail in the coffin.
  7. Match Thread: Norwich v Villa

    When was the last time we scored 3 goals in the league? Rotherham?
  8. Steve Bruce

    Bloke on talksport(Tom Ross?) Apparently we broke even over last January and then made 25m this window, Bruce just needs backing by xia. Basically it's not Bruce's fault it's xia's for not backing him or ours for not supporting the team enough. And 10 months is too soon to judge him. I know talksport tries to wind people up but my blood is boiling.
  9. Steve Bruce

    Just looking at the stats the biggest standout is that winning run we went on, we didn't concede in 7of8 games and we're still about 1 goal per goal conceded. Even with kodjia we just don't score close to enough, and Bruce has to take the responsibility for that because of the way we set up. Yet despite the best part of a season and an entire preseason we find ourselves a couple of games in to a new season and we still don't have a plan of attack, that's why imo we should be looking to see who else is available. I'm not saying we sack him now, but he needs to prove we can score goals quickly.
  10. Steve Bruce

    Right, tried to get some numbers but had to mostly work this out for myself. Numbers for all championship games with Bruce in charge. Without kodjia Played 7 games won 1 lost 3 drawn 3. Goals scored 5 Conceded 9 With kodjia Played 30 Won 14 Lost 11 Drawn 5 Goals scored(kodjia) 33(18) Goals conceded 31
  11. New Manager 2017 Part 2

    If the manager isn't responsible for the coaching then what exactly is he responsible for?
  12. Match Thread: Villa v Hull

    We should have scored 5 already today. As much as Bruce should have changed it earlier our finishing has yet again been poor.
  13. Match Thread: Villa v Hull

    This ref is awful. How have they not seen a card, when you look at the fouls for ours.
  14. Match Thread: Villa v Hull

    Bacuna ball watching and marking air, but that should have been dealt with sooner. Gabby hasn't been involved at all this half either, I'd take one off at least, probably both, stick anomah/green and hourihane on.
