  1. What's Dean Smith done to make him worth considering when Bruce leaves? Pardew for me. Good record at this level and has Premiership experience, whereas Smith has none. We'd run into the same problem with Bruce if he got us up, can't do it at the top level, so sacking him now just brings forward the inevitable. He won't get us up though, which is unforgivable given the resources/players available. Bruce out!
  2. Collymore saying Pearson! After the Derby disaster!? He's unbelievable. He must be trying to drum up interest in his talk show.
  3. It is, fees regularly go into double figures now, for the sides at the top end at least. He's a goal scorer and they come at a premium.
  4. Yeah, I know what you mean. We've got to think bigger though and he's got a good record at this level. He's a safe pair of hands.
  5. We're all out of clean slates. We don't need him anyway, side is already top heavy.
  6. 15m is the going rate for a forward these days. If he can score 20 goals in an ordinary Bristol City side, he'll score plenty for us, the problem is lack of service.
  7. It'll be Bruce, close the thread. He's available now, no compensation and a proven track record at this level.
  8. I didn't say appoint him because he's Villa, I just pointed it out as some would no doubt say they didn't want him as he's played and managed the shit down the road, which is irrelevant in this case. I'd say his performances have pretty good given he's working with **** all. The list of possible replacements for RDM is so ordinary, I'd rather give a younger manager like Rowett a chance.
  9. Who gives a shit if he played and managed the crap down the road, he's Villa and the short sighted amoungst us would do well to remember. Its a risk, he's not had a job with the pressure he'll have with us, but he's done really well upto now and he'd be my choice, good young manager. Get him before Bournemouth go knocking to replace Howe when he links up with the national side.
  10. Whilst it's early, it'll be play offs at best and that's at a push. We've made little to no progress since the season the started. The side is top heavy, loaded with quality forwards, but they're starved of service due to our non existent midfield. We look poor at the back, little to no protection from midfield again. Baker has got to start playing though, take the armband off Elphick if need be. Sides just walk through us, far too easy. We're just going to stumble to a mid table finish with RDM, so go get Rowett, stick with him and we may have the next Eddie Howe.
  11. Agree but Gary Rowett. Good young manager. The short sighted amongst us that will moan about him having played and managed the shit down the road, get over it, he's Villa anyway if rumours are to be believed.
  12. The score down the road puts our results into context. We've been so ordinary and it's not good enough, especially given what we've spent. They're worse but grind out results. Go get Rowett. RDM is an average manager.
  13. He's not a very inspiring manager so doesn't suprise me.
  14. It is when you're stuttering like we are, meaning the gap is likely to get bigger before we finally find out feet and then throw in a possible managerial change. He can't be given much longer. He wasn't expected to hit the ground running given what's gone on with the club recently, but we expected better than this.
  15. We're already pretty low as it is, anymore is unacceptable. Whilst I understand what you're saying, that we need continuity given last seasons disaster and all the changes on and off the pitch, but given the cash that's been spent, play-offs is a minimum and we shouldn't settle for anything less, we've bought some big players in and we should be doing better. We need someone that's going to toughen us up as the same problems are rearing their head, being out battled, not killing off games etc.
  16. Nothing will change, the gap is already too big, our rivals have momentum, despite plenty of changes themselves, namely Newcastle, but we can't find our feet.
  17. Hopefully Tony won't tolerate the usual we were unlucky lines, we've got the players, RDM just isn't the man for the job, completely uninspiring manager, Rowett has worked wonders with the shit he's got down the road, he could get the best out of our players, go get him and derail them words removed in the process.
  18. I agree. I still see a lot of our old problems rearing their head, such as being out battled, not killing off games etc. Its not helped by having a powder puff midfield. We need Jed/Tish back in there as soon as.
  19. Get the legal team on this guy Tony. He's a non-believer.
  20. Looks ordinary one minute, brilliant the next. When he wants to, he can just take it up a gear and get passed two or three players.
  21. Agreed Gardner not good enough. He gave the ball away twice in the space of a few minutes and the second resulted in a goal.
  22. I agree with Dr Xia The days of this club being short changed are gone, whether that be by other clubs, our managers and players. I don't care how much has changed, it needs to stop being used as an excuse, these are highly paid professionals we're talking about, so start producing or move on and we'll find someone that will. We've shelled out enough to expect at least play offs and we're already falling behind, so give RDM another 10 games, if we're still struggling to get results, move him on, although I don't expect him to get that long.
