Thread: Bruce out!

  1. #1

    Bruce out!

    Apparently uninspired football against a side whose payroll pales compared to ours. This is not the right guy for Villa.

    Villamon,

    At least Tiger Tim tried to play offensive !

    Bruce style is tactically negative & totally destitute of ideas he regularly sets us up with 1 up front @ home ?

    Today we managed 1 shot on target Brentford comfortably controlled the game, bar for Johnson they might have hit us for 4

    Its saddening however Bruce served his purpose (steadying the ship) now “ Were on the road to NOWHERE !"

    I don't think he's the answer but still feel he's our best striker behind Kodjia and should have started today.

    Well judging by Dr Xia's tweet I ain't the only one. He posted three emoji's - a frowny face, an embarrassed face and an angry face.

    Read into it what you will, but I think he is fed up like I am.

    God help us ! If his pathetic 4 goals per season merits citation !

    On that basis couple more strikes, you’ll be suggesting we commission a statue in recognition of this seasons haul by Conor Hourihane

    States,

    NONE of Bruce's side have ever been anything other than functional

    Bruce's game plan V Brentford - these words sum it up Timid, Defective & Tedious

    I hear what both you and Freer are saying, Statesey, and I know I am the least tactically aware person on the board, but I kind of just want us to be a little bit brave for once and stick it out with Bruce. I know we won't get the most exciting footy with him, but he's done it before. We need someone who's been there got the tee shirt and is tough enough to withstand the pressure ... I know it's been said a million times before, but I think we need stability first.

    I'm with Sis on his one. Regardless of his tactics, and selection of players, subs etc. 1 shot on target. 1! I'm sorry that's the players fault, not the manager. They need to work harder, work as a team.

    And Bingo Gabby your saviour, got minutes, and guess what, no goal.

    Need to get behind the manager and team, at least till Christmas.

    I'm still ok with the manager but his excuse of players being tired from international duty is a weak one. Clearly Harry Kane didn't work hard enough for England.

    6 games in it isn't looking good, 1 win scoring 4 goals and in the other games we've mustered 3 & conceded 9, putting us amongst the lowest scoring and highest conceding. It's a really hard league, the 3 relegated teams from the prem averaging 1 win in 3 but that fixture today is one we should win if we're serious contenders for promotion. It's a game we deserved to lose, at home, to a cheaply assembled side - is the Villa job too big for Bruce?

    Bongo - Tim Sherwood is the reason we're not on our 3rd season in this league, when you lose such an important player as Benteke and fill the squad with a load of foreigners not battle hardened to english football (Fox & O'Reilly's approach), you cannot expect to survive. He was never going to be a long term manager, he hasn't the pedigree and probably needs to spend some time as an assistant manager in the lower leagues. We did play some good football under him and none of the losses in the new season were drubbings.

    Can't believe that yet again we are going through another "xxxx out" crisis, can't go and buy another squad after all of the changes in the last window so have to stay with the project now. I don't think we'll go up, and if we did we wouldn't survive - all feels too fragile at VP

    Aston Villa should NOT be in the bottom half of the second tier. This is NOT acceptable.

    Hi Winnie

    Very valid answer there

    Let me clarify my stance, I ain't wanting change for the sake of it

    Steve Bruce is an extremely likeable guy, only after his numerous “inspired” additions to our expensive squad its evident S B isn't any closer to fashioning a side capable of challenging than he was 40 odd games ago

    Bruce’s modus operandi is not to be beaten in the anticipation we can snatch a goal in the process

    S B might have “been there/got the T-shirt” but this isn't a cheap package holiday he’s embarked on

    As for handling the pressure, so long as the fans remain optimistic he may survive any ill-conceived assassination theories ?

    But as States points out



    Its Dr X who isn't a happy bunny
