    Steve Bruce

    I too wish Steve Bruce well....genuinely believe he enjoyed being our manager, until things started to move away from him. its the past now and looking forward to new things, new style, new approach. I hope we all remain dignified in our regards of the past and his tenure.

    Jack Grealish

    Its not an easy one. Jack has a first touch, some of the others can only dream about, he carries the ball well (at times), he has a great feel for a weighted pass, generally he is comfortable on the ball, few in this division are.....( he has to do more with the other necessary attributes, that contribute to being the complete player) but, at the moment we are not capitalising from it, I am hoping DS can help. ps Jack has to play his way through this sticky spell.

    You have to have that bit of devilment.

    John Terry

    I loved JT at Chelsea, because I could see how passionate he was to his team.....I love Warnock for the same reason....that single minded approach to his team. except when they play us, that because my team comes first. I can now comfortably Love JT because he bats on OUR wicket.

    Jack Grealish

    He is very easy on the eye, but despite him being very good at some things, he is not so good at others. If a player, any player is ineffective, you have to question their being....its a team game and you have to have 11 at it,to stand any chance of promotion in this league. I like Jack and last season he was an edge for us, now he is looking more like a luxury player....He needs to get his edge back. I have no idea, what is wrong and can only speculate.....but he looks like a player, not putting the work in behind the scenes, to me. He needs to hurt teams and he is not.

    Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Swansea

    We all know jack is a talent and no one wants to bin that.....but he needs to work on avoiding contact and not seemingly attracting it.....He needs to move the ball quicker, that may take better team work to receive it. We are not getting the best out of a natural talent.

    Brave comment on Jack.....but something is clearly not right, with his play. I hope Dean can get him to be more effective.

    Ratings & Reactions: Villa v Swansea

    I never expected much in such a short space of time.....DS said they had been working all week on shutting teams out, that showed thought CB's were good. I think it will take some time to see stark differences, but clean sheet and a win, was great. I thought before the match,Swansea might have nicked a win on our big i am pleased. Pleased how Dean explains detail that we can relate to....fed up of nebulous after match quotes.

    Albert Adomah

    Not sharp enough for me....slow in thought and movement....not enough energy. wasn't his worst game, but not for me. He doesn't look like a player the opposition would be too concerned about, most of his runs just fizzle out, in to a token gesture. I will be surprised if he features in DS's long term plans.

    John Terry

    John Terry has come in to learn how to be a coach. John has well documented qualities as a player and a leader, so it should bode well for both of us. The media and pundits, need to just allow him to get on with it and stop nit picking and finding fault.
