    It's Larry yay - a familiar face in an unfamiliar landscape!

    Happy with Di Matteo?

    Happy with your new owner - and his comments?

    Just seen you post, Haslam; I have no-one in mind as a favourite, just have to 'wait and see'.

    Posted by me on AVillaFan today :

    13/10/2016 : Most folks approach the appointment of Steve Bruce yesterday sensibly : that he is an experienced football manager with a good track record, a record that suits the current requirements of AVFC. I am one of those 'most folks', so let us back Steve Bruce in his endeavours. He has not joined Aston Villa to get our Club relegated, he has joined AVFC to get us back to where we belong and with his record, should succeed. If he fails on the field, then it will be right to criticise him, but give the man a chance first.

    To the minority who castigate Steve Bruce for his previous tenure at Birmingham City ... that stance is both puerile and pathetic, so grow up !

    prepare yourselves for **** negative football - he'll get rid of your strikers because he doesn't use them, Junior will be at the centre of your defence and anyone who disagrees will either be farmed out or put on the naughty step - good riddance - you deserve better

    31/10/2016 : The England Manager job will be hanging over our heads until the FA decide on the permanent successor to Sam Allardyce. The article below claims that Steve Bruce is 'effectively ruled out', but the England job is different to any Club job, so that claim cannot be taken as any form of guarantee that the FA will not offer the job to Steve Bruce. It could be Graham Taylor Mark II, but this time before our Manager has had the chance to get the job here done.

    Skysports - Steve Bruce still open to England call in the future

    Don't mind Sharon, he's an idiot. I'm predicting a trip to Wembley for the play off final for you. Good luck, we'll pass you on the way down :emoticon-0101-sadsm

    30/11/2016 : The FA have appointed Gareth Southgate as permanent England Manager on a 4 year contract that expires after Euro 2020.

    No danger (hopefully) of AVFC losing Steve Bruce to England now.

    No, he's not. And your predictions are showing how little you know.
    Brucey won't take you down to Div 1 as poor Leeds and the Sheffield clubs went through nor the Portsmouth trapdoor much as your fans deserve it after 2009.
    He WILL get Villa up but it won't be next year either. But my guess is Villa owners won't be willing to be patient. My guess is he'll be gone before next Christmas.
    And that won't help Villa go anywhere but down
