Thread: Bruce is a dead man walking.

  1. #1

    Bruce is a dead man walking.

    Already 2 down and playing catch up 2 games in and 5 points adrift!

    Sorry but the 'old man' plan is back firing already, so pi55ed off i'm going to shut my self down for 24 hours before I get banned!!

    The real question is, who would do any better? It's second game in. We can't keep doing the manager merry-go-round.

    Bring back Tim Sherwood, Bruce ain't got a clue we need a strike yet he stickers with players you just know ain't going to score hogan 1 goal for villa and useless gabby 2 yet we sign no one apart from midfield players and defenders

    Bruce stated he’s looking to sign 2 more players before the transfer window closes

    Unless Dr Xia can persuade Lionel Messi & Neymar Jr to commit to A V F C this is going to be painful lesson for our owner

    Well were now 3-0 down & I fear this deficit is likely to increase Cardiff are running us ragged they have had 12 shots on target

    We've managed a predictable/habitual 1 on target, its another unwelcome reminder this style & system under Bruce is to say the least primitive- & it needs be consigned to the bin

    Unless we have the biggest comeback since I was sick out of a train window its another lesson & another game in which we failed to contest

    I originally imagined October might see our owner getting an itchy trigger finger

    On such performances I think that time scale might be somewhat optimistic

    Wtf did he say at half time as we only had one or two shots second half compared to 8 I think first half !

    It's an absolute joke tbh n another long old season beckons doesn't it ?

    Crap

    That's the problem Daz. Every team we face tweaks something at half time and Potato head hasn't a clue. It's one thing having no talent Neanderthals that will just tear through walls for you like Geoff Horsefield, but then you come to Villa and buy slightly better talent but they aren't going to react to that. They want to play, but Bruce has no clue how.

    Nobody thought Bruce was anything but a steady the ship after RDM so why is he still here? He simply cannot build attacking sides, hopeless at transfers and subs, and as said an embarrassment at HT. Dr Tony - why not look for a Wagner, Quique, Silva etc in the Euro leagues rather than British dinosaurs.

    And of course Rudi Gestede just scored for Boro FFS!! Another Bruce masterstroke.

    Bruce must take responsibility of course as Villa have better players than Cardiff, but then Liverpool have better players than Watford and Chelsea have better players than Burnley. That's why we love footy. On to the next.......

    Agree to a certain degree Picasso. SB continues to pick Gabby n Hutton= one short up front and a liability down the right flank. How many years has Gabby bi sh1t? Alan (Mr Bean) Hutton has always been sh1t, but hey, he has passion, he runs through brick walls for the club (hereby missing the ball) and he looks hard with his coloured arms.

    So we have a serious achilles heal in defence and a crying shame of a disgrace as a player/ambassador up front. Add to that we have a manager (who may be a likeable bloke), who INSISTS on picking them both, and plays a system that bypasses midfield, yet buys shed loads of midfielders!!!!

    AAHHH, I'm so disappointed.

    I should of listened to 'Lefty' years ago, when he said never post until 36 hours after a match, let the head cool first, win lose or draw.

    I will from now on!!

    * Toothless, terrible, horrendous, string of four-letter words, pick your negative adjective(s). It was pathetic. Shots on target usually tell a compelling story — 12-1.

    *That understates just how bad Aston Villa were. The heads dropped and every fan had flashbacks to recent years.


    Exiled says “SB continues to pick Gabby n Hutton= one short up front and a liability down the right flank. How many years has Gabby bi sh1t?

    Bongo, had I dare make such blasphemous observation re; “Mr Aston Villa” you'd be off on one of your ill conceived apoplectic/outbursts,

    * With “rave” reviews like those above......Do give us the nod if the penny drops !

    The whole team were shiit so let's not blame Gabby for everything.

  15. #15
    I am with Bingo, no time to panic. Always 1/2 dozen games for me is the time to then reassess.

    But I do hope the management and players are sweating a little.

    Don't get me started on Gabby.

    Spot in yubby. Let's hope is a big wake up call.

    Yubby no one is saying it was strictly down to Hutton & Agbonlahor the unavoidable facts remain:

    However hard Hutton works, he is culpable of single-handedly breaking up more attacks than our opponents as he gifts the ball to the opposition 95% of the time

    Bruce must consider Lambert, Sherwood, Remi Garde, & Di Matteo were all mistaken with their professional assessments on Mr Aston Villa

    The guys stats over the past 6 ½ seasons corroborate Gabby is a dud with a capital D

    What position does he play in? Is he effective on the ball ?

    I presume Bruce’s instructions “ Today Gabby just — go out and run around on the pitch aimlessly “

    The inescapable facts are while ever Mr Bruce has playing we ain't never ever gonna progress

    Guys, calm down. The blame for yesterdays debacle does belong to anyone on here!

    The blame clearly lies with Bruce and his coaching staff who strangely enough are all EX Blues staff / players!! Even with Mr Villa even with the Mighty John Terry, we look no different to last term, where is this experience in the ranks that would make a difference, have we now already turned Terry and Whelan into bad players already?

    Taylor
    Terry
    Whelan
    Hurihane
    Landsbury
    Hogan

    For example were all great players for their former clubs so why can they just not hack it at Villa Park??

    Absolutely massive game on Tuesday and forget the result, this is now a statement of commitment, Can they respond and put in an away performance that shows we are making a difference, really, we need to go in a batter Norwich but me thinks we are going to end up with nothing and by Saturday we will be bottom of the league after 3 games! the only saving grace is that Newcastle lost their first 2 games but won the league.

    Bruce has got to turn it round rather rapid or I can see him getting the boot by the end of the Month, he is now the bookies favourite to be the first in the sack race. This should be music to all our bombed out players and hopefully if he does go then take Gabby with him, No its not Gabby's fault but its like a jinx, while he is in the squad we look ****e.
    On top of all that we now have awoken the Noses and that is making me feel physically sick!!
