  1. Steve Bruce

    Absolute nonsense. That's not 'most likely' at all is it, considering you just made it up.
  2. Steve Bruce

    Who says they haven't? They did a ton of work in January to correct even Di Matteo's mistakes. The question is a simple one for me - do we act like a proper football club and give an experienced manager with a proven track record a pre season and a full summer window to bring it all together, or do we go all half arsed and chuck the baby out with the bathwater? Again. I'm sick of the revolving door. Bruce hasn't done a great job, merely an average one. However there is a decent defensive foundation to build on and we've stopped sinking. It's a start.

    In what way? There are more ways to finish the article than going out and signing a boat load more players. I think both Wyness and Bruce have said 2/3 signings in the summer, quality not quantity and both have alluded to clearing the rest of the dead wood. Then, obviously, he needs to work on bringing everything together in pre season. That's still a fair bit of work.
  4. Gabby Agbonlahor

    Nobody is suggesting we should ever give him much more than that now, £10-20k for a useful weapon on the bench? Even starting with Kodjia. Sure I'd be in, if he can continue as he has done. He's already on the wage he's on right now, there's nothing we can do about that. Nobody will take him, he doesn't want to go and the manager likes him. If we could shift him then I think we probably would. However we need to honour the contract we gave him, even if he hadn't always done the same. That moment has passed.
  5. Gabby Agbonlahor

    Ahhhh I've just seen that he has a year left already? In which case he has plenty of time to earn an extension as it is. No need to do anything yet.
  6. Steve Bruce

    Well I'm still behind him. I want to see more in terms of ability, movement, composure. I'm pleased that he recognises this whilst also acknowledging our resilience. The rot has been well and truly stopped. It's time to push things forward Steve.
  7. Gabby Agbonlahor

    Still not a popular opinion I know but I think he has played well under Bruce for the main part and it was unfortunate that the hamstring injury came when it did. I shook my grudge off a while ago so I'd be all for giving him a 1 year deal on (hopefully) relevant wages. I don't say that as a sympathiser, but as somebody who thinks it would benefit Aston Villa.
  8. Keith Wyness

    I think so yes.
  9. Gabby Agbonlahor

    What a moment. God bless you Gabby.
  10. The push for the Play offs ?

    Ok cool. Will do.
  11. Birkir Bjarnason

    Yes.
  12. Jack Grealish

    At this stage does it matter? 'We' keep giving people like Jack chance after chance and they've always got a good excuse - I was on holiday, it was a mate not me, it was my 21st and it got out of hand but I didn't do anything honest, my alarm didn't go off boss etc etc. I've been a supporter of Jack's and a critic when it's warranted, but my patience is wearing thin now. Ultimately Steve Bruce is a lot closer to the situation and will have his own ideas, I'll back him on it because I trust he won't stand for bollocks, no matter how talented the player. But personally I can no longer hide my disappointment and, unfortunately, my disinterest.
  13. The push for the Play offs ?

    Phrases like "Sheffield Wednesday only need 10 points from the last 6 and we can't catch them" don't dissuade me. It's the volume of teams we have to overtake, but if we win every game they'd have to go great guns themselves to keep up. I did say a while back though that 73 might be enough, we've basically got to go on a cup run, with no penalties available.
  14. The push for the Play offs ?

    It does make me smile when people say this as though it's a simple task. Lose a couple, draw a couple, and all of a sudden a win isn't enough. In the Championship anything is possible, we might lose our next two and this conversation is redundant.
  15. Season Ticket Renewal

    Will be a completely different experience. The moaners will be even more noticeable! Lower Holte would have been a healthy compromise. That said, I had a ST above the dugout under O'Neill and it was enjoyable. Listening to him, watching him gestate. I learned a lot about football watching from there too, great view.
