I've always been curious as to why the club don't list the coaching staff on the club website.

It would be good to see how we compare with other clubs since we are always talking about being ambitious.

I know we would employ plenty of others within the academy staff but how does this list compare to other teams staff ?

I don’t know how you would compare. I could barely tell you anything about any of Villa’s staff so I definitely wouldn’t be able to tell you whether they are better or worse at their jobs than those at other clubs. Also a job title doesn’t give insight of day to day responsibilities (for those lower down the list).

Do you mean just to see how they compare in numbers to more successful clubs. For example, we employ 4 analysts but Liverpool might employ 6. 

I honestly don’t know how a fan could provide much insight re what is or isn’t working behind the scenes. 
I think the role that is open to most scrutiny would be set piece coach as if we are regularly conceding from them and not scoring from them, then something needs improving.

The comparison was just based on numbers compared to say the " big 6 ". Really just to see if villa is on the up or if its just all talk.

In Australia its hard to keep up with everyday stories and behind the scenes info. You just rely on social media really.

I think our coaching staff are under a bit of pressure to deliver us a decent result on the table so I thought I would google who are staff actually are to see who we have !

32 positions within the business there and not a single female amongst them. Mental.

That's a great point you make and something I didn't notice

My guess is we have a bloated coaching setup, but I’m happy to be corrected.

The staffroom at the lunch break must get pretty hectic !

And yet the team more often than not looks disjointed and clueless.

Haven’t Villa used the title head coach the whole time? Smith wasn’t manager either I don’t think.

Correct he was also head coach.

Smith was head coach but the stories seem to be Gerrard doesnt do any coaching and that he leaves it to Beale/Critchley

Gary Mc is just a cheerleader

Since Aaron Danks joined us.

50% loss rate. 36% win rate. 44 points from 41 games. 1.07 points per game.

Never mind how shit we’ve looked on the ball since then.

I am 100% sure Smith didnt want him or MacPhee and preferred to keep ROK and Terry

Definitely Purslow calls for me
