    Bruce was a defender, right?

    So I'd be interested to see if he could explain this: our entire team was in our own box...yet Grealish was able to pull the ball back for Traore to score. (and let's be honest, it's actually only half of the box we're packed into) Do we do anything at all other than run in training?

    It’s a picture that sums up our ‘tactics’ (I use the term loosely) under Bruce.
    11 of our players in the box. 3 Villa players out of the photo on the left. Even if Darlow catches Traore’s shot there is absolutely no danger for Villa of a counter attack and so it’s an open invitation to attack.
    Villa have 7 players in shooting distance and and are risking nothing.

    He's been here two years too long.

    If the box hadn't been over crammed with defenders perhaps Darlow would have had a better early sighting of the ball.

    He was a defender on his grandmother's side.
