    De Gea had a shocking first season, it must be difficult in a new country & culture where the coaching staff disappears after 2 months and you go a few weeks without a coach. Given the circumstances he’s done alright, give him till Jan to establish himself.

    He’s had 6-7 days in reality and this is where they prove themselves or finish themselves for him. Several have to be replaced in January, absolutely awful and not suited to where we’re going as a club now. Fittness needs to be improved and we need to be more clinical and cleaner in our general play. I can see a direction though which is why I wanted Bruce gone. I’ll be patient and back Smith to deliver it

    Ironically that was probably Bruce’s reaction to

    Setting a trap is when multiple players press in a certain way which forces a player or players to play in a certain area. Im lost on overload tbh

    As much as everyone credits smith for changing them in a couple of days. I’d wager that’s the first time most of them have actually received coaching and tactical instructions before a game in their time at the club. Honestly from tid bits I’d heard and my honest impression of Bruce they were sent out with “get in to them”, “play with a bit of zip” “pump it forward” and “keep it tight” ringing in their ears. I honestly think when he rocked up and said phases to them he then had to get a white board out and explain. Weve been abysmally ran for so long this is massively refreshing.

    Imagine being in the “Steve Bruce is the only man for us camp” for the last 18 months. He held us back massively, Smith will need time but we’ll go places under him

    It will always take its toll, hence more attack minded subs to press higher up the pitch. Good start from Smith I like the direction he’s taking us

    Interesting that it’s “head coach” & “assistant coach”. I think it suggests others will be put in place and won’t be expected to leave should the manager, I sense a real infastructure being put in place here. Its been badly needed at Villa for so long

    As someone who was more enamoured with the idea of Henry. I don’t get why you would come on here to say “I’m dubious etc” he has my support 100% and I’ll judge him after a dozen games to make long term assessments, anything else is farcical at this stage.

    Hopefully he can resurrect the club

    Apparently he believes we have a divine right to premier league football

    Hasn’t been utilised correctly by Bruce this season for me, Bruce’s daily not Jack’s

    New Manager Speculation

    This is the period where it quickly becomes apparent that the vast majority of football pundits & journalists in this country are basically chancers trading off a past history playing the game or arse licking their mates.

    New Manager Speculation

    Dean Smith is not the answer, he’s the sum of all parts and will flop like Warburton has. Alladyce, Moyes are Bruce 2.0 Henry untested but I can’t imagine it will be poor football sherwood I don’t know why he’s being mentioned, hopefully someone is taking the Piss. Ranieri no thanks Rodgers maybe although I think we’d get annoyed with him after 2 years. Terry player / manager. I’m in Sanchez Flores I’m in
