    New Manager Speculation

    If we don't win promotion Bruce is surely out. If we win promotion, I can't see Tony sticking with him in the Premier League. Who would you like to have (realistically) to replace him?

    The Manager thread

    This can be a general managerial thread. I don't know if its me, but I can't stand a number of the managers now in the Premier League. They are just big babies who throw their toys out of the pram. We've seen Mourinho, Klopp, Pep, Wenger and Karanka act like complete bell ends in the last few weeks alone. Walking out of interviews, being obtuse to reporters and in Wenger's case, pushing people. That's why it wouldn't bother me to see Chelsea or Spurs win the league now I know there has always been the occasional managerial outburst but it seems more frequent now?

    Ron Saunders in care

    It has been reported in the Birmingham Mail that Ron Saunders has been placed in a residential care home near Solihull. He has been there since May. Ron, who is now 85, has dementia. His son Ronnie gave an interview to The Portsmouth News. Ronnie said that, “It crept up very slowly, he now struggles with every aspect of his life, everything he does.” He continued, “I saw it starting 20 odd years ago, there were certain things dad did that made us realise.” Ronnie added, “We knew his brain was quite damaged. We feel quite lucky he has lasted this long because we never thought he would. Mum couldn’t cope with him anymore his brain had gone.” The family have spoken to Dawn Astle (Geoff’s daughter) about the links between football and dementia. What a cruel illness dementia is. It hits a family so very hard to see their once strong family member become dependant on the care of others and to forget so much of their past. We really should have a Ron Saunders Stand by now. I felt that we should have had one many years ago when Ron could have been there at the ground to see it unveiled. Ron was the greatest Villa manager during my time as a Villa fan and he built our league championship and European Cup winning team. I thank him for what he did for us and my thoughts are with his family at this so difficult time. https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/heartbreaking-story-one-aston-villas-15020929

    K-Mac

    Temporary manager, glad Villa have kept him on. but please god not as permement manager. Come on K-Mac bring back our villa
  7. I now feel there has been enough time to assess Bruce, now that we know pretty much where this season is ending. I still count this (not everyone does I know I know) as his first full season and he's pretty much got us play-offs barring something daft. This squad, whatever happens will change wholesale next season, and actually I don't mind that, I think we've witnessed a very good effort from a team composed of loan signings and others all of who do not know their future after this year - it was only ever to be a one season squad. The manager, has to take credit for achieving play-offs (not certain yet yes yes yes) and he will take enormous credit if he gets us promoted (I do think we have a great shot) - and he should stay at the club next season if he achieves that. If he doesn't then, he has said so himself, it's time for a different model and cutting our cloth accordingly - and I for one, do not mind the prospect of this one bit. It's actually how I'm insulating myself from the crushing despair that may come our way in a few weeks. So what next? This is a topic about what next in the prem, or what next in the championship. I'll leave the prem ideas to others, what I'm quite excited about is a new manager working with our talented youngsters including I hope Grealish, dashed with a bit of experience (Jedi, Chester if they stay, Kodjia might too after that injury) and us building a style of play that we can take into the prem and stick with, not building a squad for one season only, ever again.

    The Tim Sherwood Thread

    confirmed as manager till 2018 As per BBC Radio 5 live
  11. Think out of respect for Steve Bruce and the Bruce family we should have a separate thread for condolences to our manager and the Bruce family at this difficult time. Sad News sending my deepest condolences to the Bruce family at this difficult time horrendous few weeks for them. Dont worry about the football Steve that can take a back seat at the moment. Such sad news.

    The Rémi Garde thread

    Aston Villa Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Rémi Garde as our new manager. The 49-year-old Frenchman is widely regarded as one of Europe's most exciting coaches and has agreed a contract that will run until the end of season 2018/19. Rémi enjoyed a successful three-year period as manager of Ligue 1 side Lyon where he led the club to the Couple de France and Trophee des Champions as well as the quarter-finals of the Europa League, successfully implementing his own brand of highly entertaining football in the process. He is also renowned for developing young talent and the Club is thrilled to have secured his services. Tom Fox, Aston Villa Chief Executive, said: "For the past year we have been working purposefully to transform the Club in order to build a successful organisation that can compete and succeed in the Premier League. "Finding a manager who shares and believes in our vision and has the ability to bring it to life through performances on the pitch is essential. We are confident that Rémi is the manager who can deliver the best from the current squad and help set the club up for future success". Rémi Garde said: "It is an unbelievable honour to be the manager of such an illustrious football club. "I've had extremely positive meetings with both the owner, Randy Lerner, and Chief Executive Tom Fox. They have ambitious plans for the Club and I'm excited that they have turned to me to help them realise them. "Obviously we have a difficult task in front of us but I'm looking forward to the challenge with the support of everyone who loves Aston Villa." Chairman Randy Lerner added: "Rémi came with ideas, honesty, humour and a steely sense of what it will take for Aston Villa to be what it is meant to be - hard working, tireless, creative and unwilling to concede. "Nobody at Villa can deny that we are way behind. We recruited aggressively this past summer and it is our responsibility to now harvest this talent rather than buckle under pressure and criticism - we are better than that. On behalf of the Board we wish Rémi every success." http://www.avfc.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10265~5113718,00.html

    The Bruce 'in' thread

    I just can't handle debating whether Bruce should be sacked or not for another 4 months til the next season kicks off. This doesn't have to be all about loving Steve Bruce but anyone who wants to discuss him or his tactics or anything relevant, without calling for him to be sacked before the season starts (which I find a totally ridiculous notion)...... I say welcome.

    The last page on Alex McLeish

    We've had 42 competitive match threads on VillaTalk this season, each one a real time conversation about how we've been getting on. I've selected a comment from the last page of each match thread to create an Alex McLeish anthology in VT posts. It's not pretty, but it provides an interesting and poignant season review. Here we go - Fulham away: 0-0 Blackburn home: 3-1 not too bad against a team we've played 11 times in the last 18 months! You a glass half full type of guy? 32k for the first home game of the season is awful. Mcleish definitely had an effect on sales, not taking away this victory. LC2 Hereford home: 2-0 I've got 3-0. May the best man win! Don't say that... I thought I was going to win. Wolves home: 0-0 Everton away: 2-2 Newcastle home: 1-1 LC3 Bolton home: 0-2 QPR away: 1-1 Wigan home: 2-0 Man City away: 1-4 West Brom home: 1-2 Sunderland away: 2-2 Norwich home: 3-2 Spurs away: 0-2 Swansea away: 0-0 Manchester United home: 0-1 Bolton away: 2-1 Liverpool home: 0-2 Arsenal home: 1-2 Stoke away: 0-0 Chelsea away: 3-1 Swansea home: 0-2 FAC3 Bristol Rovers away: 3-1 Everton home: 1-1 Wolves away: 3-2 FAC4 Arsenal away: 2-3 Newcastle away: 1-2 QPR home: 2-2 Man City home: 0-1 Wigan away: 0-0 Blackburn away: 1-1 This may or may not be true - however, it never needs to be written down or said out loud. Thank you. Fulham home: 1-0 Arsenal away: 0-3 Chelsea home: 2-4 Liverpool away: 1-1 Stoke home: 1-1 Manchester United away: 0-4 Sunderland home: 0-0 Bolton home: 1-2 West Brom away: 0-0 Spurs home: 1-1 Norwich away: 0-2

    New Manager : 2017

    Someone had to start one. And to avoid clogging up the Bruce thread with speculation and names, if Bruce is to go soon (which could be likely if things don't pick up), who would you like to see replace him?

    English managers

    I believe it was @Grasshopper who made a post listing the managers at the top clubs in England, and pointed out that English managers aren't as good. While I am in agreement that the best of English managers aren't, it got me thinking that is it also down to a lack of opportunity at the top end? And why is there this lack of opportunity? It's easy to name the managers at the top 6 as very good managers - they all are - but they were all given an opportunity at a big club to show that off. Were the jobs that they did previous to getting a job at their first big club really that impressive? Was it simply down to their leagues not having 5/6 teams competing at the top and therefore they could take more gambles?

    21st Century Managers

    So, we've had 11 permanent managers thus far in this century. Some have fared better than others, some have worked under difficult circumstances, some under difficult chairmen and it's fair to say some have been better than others. Which leaves it to you fine people of VT to judge. What I'm looking for from you is these eleven managers, in order, by your opinion of who did best for us through to who did worst. John Gregory 2000 - Jan 2002 Graham Taylor 2002 - May 2003 David O'Leary 2003 - July 2006 Martin O'Neill 2006 - Aug 2010 Gerard Houllier 2010 - June 2011 Alex McLeish 2011 - May 2012 Paul Lambert 2012 - Feb 2015 Tim Sherwood 2015 - Oct 2015 Remi Garde 2015 - March 2016 Roberto DiMatteo 2016- Oct 2016 Steve Bruce 2016 - present Enjoy!

    2016: A memoir

    Been a bit of a crap one, hasn't it? Started out with the board refusing to back a new manager, followed by humiliation and relegation. Between it all were the protests - which were (if I do say so myself) something to be proud of. Then we get Tony, RDM and the absolute chaos of his management. Following that Bruce and a revival. Been one hell of a year and one we won't forget - for bad reasons mainly, but some good in there in parts. What are your main memories?

    Roberto Di Matteo

    As per OS: http://www.avfc.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10265~5620078,00.html (I remember Limpid asking for a seperate thread once confirmed. Don't hate the duplicate.)

    Next Villa Manager

    Should rdm be rightly dismissed from the role who would you pick and why? Personally I'd go for Rowett as he has shown a capability of building and motivating a team to compete in this league with far less resources. I think he would relish the opportunity of working with far superior players and would have us competing pretty quickly. He has shown he can work with a basket case club under difficult circumstances and he would be highly motivated to do well for us
