RDM sacking confirmed

I’d like to say I’m glad.
But the truth is I’m not.
We now have to pretty much start from scratch, with a new manager having to get to know the players and all that involves.
That said, Roberto Di Matteo had to go, because it simply wasn’t working.

And I have to doff my cap at how quickly Dr Xia and the board have reacted.
Which tells me that they’d already done the background work in implementing a plan B.
And I’d expect the announcement of a new manager very shortly, which tells me it’s going to be Steve Bruce.
Unless we’re going to use the international break to negotiate with another club as we pinch their manager.

All interesting, but sadly, still turbulent times.

    I find that I’m actually starting to veer towards Bruce. He’s a relatively safe pair of hands which is probably what we need right now.

    Perhaps we can gamble on a younger or more inexperienced manager once we’ve got ourselves in a decent position and some confidence has returned to the team.

    Although he’s done okay he’s only managed clubs where money was always scarce so it might be interesting to see what he could do with some of Dr. Tony’s millions.

    Anyway if it is Bruce I think I’ll be far from heartbroken.

    I was totally against McLeish as every other villa Dan but I think Bruce could be a good fit.
    but somehow the club have to stop this managerial merry go round to move forward.
    we need players who are up for a fight not pampered.
