    But you need to look at the bigger picture di matteo came in and got us playing attractive football straight away and look how that worked out. Bruce has came into a club where there confidence is as low as it can be, the club has been in a massive decline over the course of 5 years or so. What I am most happy to see is the fact the players are starting to believe in themselves and the confidence is coming back the players we have now are actually proud to be wearing a villa shirt. Bruce has gotten rid of the goals we were conceding in the last 5 mins of pretty much every game under di matteo and has actually got the players scoring in the last 5 instead. I think the things Bruce has done behind the scenes with these players and this club is massive. I was against him coming to us after di matteo was sacked but I'm so happy I was completely wrong about him.
  2. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    Slightly confused as to why people are trying to replace a defence that has conceded once in the last 7 games?

    bruce isn't playing the prettiest of football at the minute but its proving very effective and this is a club that has been in massive decline since O'Neil left. I think this is where the likes of di Matteo failed, he came in and straight away tried to get us to play pretty football that we weren't ready for. It's a bit like di matteo just used us as a quickie didn't really care about how they felt or what was wrong deep down but Bruce seems to want a proper relationship with us he has invested time in what is wrong with us, built our confidence up made us stronger and more resilient and soon Bruce will get the same that di matteo had only it will last a lot longer and will see us become a very good team again. But we need to be patient and allow the relationship to grow into something we haven't seen for a long time and I really believe Bruce will get there.

    Brief breakdown of his performance last night should explain why he conceded 3 goals. 1. For some reason he refuses to catch a ball, I'm sure he can but for whatever reason he doesn't. Punching the ball does not stop the attack catching it does. 2. His positioning, last night for all 3 goals his positioning was wrong and make the goals seem harder to stop than they are. E.g the one he had chipped over him he showed way to much of the goal to the attacker and went down way to quickly. 3. Reading of attackers, it seems that he is waiting for an attacker to actually do something before reacting rather than reading the players body and actions. For the last goal it was pretty obvious where the ball was going to go before his foot hit the ball so back to my previous point he could have positioned himself better. All in all people will say the goals were not his fault and I do agree with them in principal as ye defence did make mistake to lead them to scoring but none of these shots were impossible to save if he followed the last 2 points I made.

    Barnsley fans visiting Villa Park on Valentine's Day will be like going out and watching your ex getting it on with one of your mates.

    I do still think gabby has a lot to offer us. Even just bringing him on the pitch forces the oppositions back 10yards. If we had a midfield that could exploit the extra space that creates then I think he will bag a few goals for us. Personally I like Bruce's approach what he has done in the past is just that in the past if he can help us get promoted then I don't really care what he has done before now.
