Only a matter of time now Bruce is on his last legs now. Who do you want? I haven't put people like Jokanovic and Stam as the compensation will be insane and we won't be able to afford it. For example 5m for jokanovic.

who do you want? I've gone for dean smith

Why did the last thread get closed, I think it's up for serious debate, the fans are turning on Bruce in their numbers now.

Voted for Pardew but that list sure is depressing. I reckon Bruce will be given a bit more time looking at that list.

Any managers been tearing it up on the continent? Any of the Laudrops free or de boers? What about that Garcia bloke, did well at Brighton and Watford, arguably he got Watford into the premier league.

I've voted other. If we could tempt Allardyce out of retirement I'd want him. Failing that I'd prefer someone like Jokanovic, even if he comes at a cost. 

I managed to vote in the duplicate thread in my own. Billy no mates.

Not sure what the love in for Karanka is all about he really is an ultra negative manager.

Got boro up with 89 points and a plus 32 gd which is the sort of negative record I'd certainly like this season :)

If jokanovic can be got for £5m then we should do it   - better option than those above.

A manager who can coach players. A manager who has a tactical plan. A manager who likes to play on the front foot.

Jokanovic of Fulham is the man. He took Watford up, and he nearly took Fulham up last season with some fantastic expansive football.

He's not too happy at Fulham (due to their board), and I'm sure we could get him.

As per my post on the Bruce thread I'm staying with Bruce. Looking at that list makes my decision more justified. That list makes me very sad who the alternatives are. Reaffirms that while I'm not a happy Villa fan, I'm not going to over react after two league games and I'm sticking with Bruce.

 

reasons

1) Bruce resume stands extremely well against any of those

2) starting again a few games into the season never makes sense. Either in the summer it should've happened but not now

3) these are Bruce's players, any new manager would have players that they don't want, would need to learn who the players are and would take time to blend into their view

4) given our history with managers, no guarantee that grass is greener, and any manager would do better and may do worse.

5) FFP with paying compensation for any manager and sidekicks, along with paying out Bruce and his team

6) time for a settled club rather than another upheaval.

I voted other. I'd love to see what Jokanovic could do at Villa. He's a modern, forward thinking manager with a track record of success in this league, and he's happy to bring through young players.

I said Jokanovic back in February in the original new manager thread and stick by that choice. I don't think we can afford the 5m compensation for him, though. 

I would have said Dean Smith as second choice, but not now the Brentford fans have been criticising him for similar things that we have Bruce. 

So **** it - in the absence of any decent and gettable options, put a load of names in the hat and pick one out. It won't make any difference, they'll still come here and fail.

Bringing in Jokanovic would be great, but we need to ensure he gets the staff he wants to come with him too. Far too often we've had a mis match in coaching staff.
