    Of Steve Bruce's 4 promotions, how many were top 2 and how many through the play offs?

    Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I think what sne is trying to say is that the perfect Steve Bruce team and performance would be solid and pragmatic. Not giving the opposition many, if any chances and being clinical with the chances we get. Think Mourinho. Where as what would be more pleasing on the eye and exciting would be a more attacking possession based approach. Think Guardiola. Both good managers who have won lots of trophies but chalk and cheese when it comes to style. If you look back over Steve Bruce's managerial career he's always been more Jose than Pepe and that ain't gonna change. He might give us a decent version of the former and get us promoted, if he tries to do a Pepe, which he won't, it would end in tears.

    I'm hoping that our "football people" are now a greatly improved group of professionals now that Steve Round is on board. At the moment that is merely a hope and we probably won't know a great deal until sometime in the future, as these things take a long time to show fruit. Cultural change is required at all levels of the club.

    I agree there is a tendency to over emphasise pace in all positions, particularly at either end of the pitch. But it's a more than handy attribute if you have it. I mean Gabby and Micah Richards both have it and they are.......ok I get your point!

    I'm also concerned about Jedi's lack of pace as a centre half. However I'm not sure who Wigan have up front and if they have any speed merchants. More of a worry is who will play at DM instead of him?

    We plan when we want, we plan when we want, we're Aston Villa, we plan when we want!!

    I thought that on Saturday we comfortably won without ever looking like we would wallop them. We were competent against what I felt was a very average team. What frustrates me greatly is the fact that this very average Sheffield Wednesday team are actually 6th, which suggests that if we had managed to be average this season we would have easily made the play offs. With our extremely expensively created squad that should have been a walk in the park.

    Bruce has said he likes Kodija coming in from wide, so I imagine he will play left side with Hogan up top. If they forge an understanding, over a few games, not a few minutes, then they could really score a lot of goals.

    Winning goal at the Holte End vs The Noses to send them into the bottom 3

    Whilst I agree that winning is and always will be the most important factor, the manner of the victories can't be totally ignored. If we have a game plan, even if we don't like the style, that is producing good results then we're happy. However if we're getting results that seem to be more by luck than judgement, whilst we may still be happy in the short term the luck may eventually dry up. Obviously there is a fair dollop of subjectivity in assessing what is lucky and what is a deliberate game plan.

    And I hope you had to Google those lines and didn't just know them off pat!!??
