Still think Moyes would have been a good fit for Villa. A relegation battle was not what he needed after his last 2 tough jobs. He would have got us organised a lot quicker than RDM has and built from there, rather than trying to shoe-horn 4 attackers into a team.

Moyes throwing his players under the bus.

How many years in a row have people said that for?

Of course, it's got to happen eventually, but it would be a brave man betting on it in any individual season at this point.

I think the manner of Sunderland's defeat yesterday has parallels with Villa v Leicester last year. After getting something on the opening we'd lost a few by this match, worked well to get into a 2-0 lead, then Sh*rwood decided to take off midfielders for attackers and Leicester over ran us and came back to win with 3 goals in 15 minutes. After which we just began to properly spiral and confidence drained.  Can't see who they beat in a game.

I actually wanted him at Villa, but that's an appalling interview to give with a new team so early in the job.

Moyes has got proper losing mentality vibe IMO. Said they were fortunate to be 2-0 up but "just couldn't keep it" after that must enrage the Sunderland fans.

Both Tyne and Wear clubs have done a Villa this weekend.

I know that there are so many other factors involved but it is interesting how both Villa and Sunderland went into a tailspin after O'Neill.

Although in fairness he didn't stamp his mark on Sunderland the way he did here.

Sunderland have been shit since Peter Reid left, a slight blip under Keane and Bruce who both wasted ridiculous amounts of money on crap which still costing them to this day

Palace are currently 750/1 for the title ;)

I heard a stat on the radio that you have to go back to 2012 since Sunderland won a game in August or September!

I remember reading similar ten posts up the page ;)
