Villa 1-3 Barnsley; There’s something very wrong at the Villa. Bruce POLL.

Let me get this straight from the off.
I’m utterly disgusted at the result today.
The fact that an ex Walsall player put two goals against us, says it all.

But I firmly believe that sacking Steve Bruce is not the solution to our problems.

I know. That’s going to go totally against the grain.
But there’s something badly wrong. There has to be.

Consider Nigel Spink believes there’s an over-hanging cancer at the club.
And now Tony Morley, after saying at half time that we could easily beat Barnsley, now seems to also accept that there’s something seriously wrong down the Villa.

I respect Morley and believe he can read a game.
I also believe Steve Bruce can read a game and is not a manager who has to rely on other so-called tactitians to tell him what to do.

So why are we starting out with the set-ups that we are and not making the subs when it seems they’re required?
Is Bruce really that poor a manager?

I’m not having that as an excuse, personally and think there’s something we’re not seeing from the outside.

That said, on the face of it, it’s simply appalling.
Morley says he can’t understand why we don’t make the changes when it’s blindingly obvious they’re needed.
I’m the same.
In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bruce wants the sack.
Which if you seriously think about it, is a frightening thought.

Because if someone of Bruce’s experience in handling players can’t cut it, what chance has any younger manager got?

Am I talking rubbish?
Think about it again.
Look at the managers we’ve had. The players we’ve changed. The hierarchy we’ve changed. The coaches etc we’ve changed. And even the owner.

Whatever has been changed, it simply hasn’t worked.

So is changing the manager again going to work?
I’m afraid I just don’t see it.

That said, I know my arguments aren’t going to cut much ice.
Morley said we could beat Barnsley easy, at half time, but basically described us as a load of jellyfish ten minutes after.

The facts are that if we carry this on, we’re going down; no ifs and buts.
And I know it’s what you’re thinking too.

And it’s why I’m reluctantly putting a poll up.

Sad days.

    i think villa will summon a performance again to match this night when we almost beat the best team in the division. (brighton). when your the underdogs in a game. that gives you the freedom to play. this unexplained phenomena will happen tonight hopefully.

    on paper newcastle and villa are the best in this league. somehow they have managed to bring this on the pitch. where we haven’t. brighton and leeds are amongthe best teams with newcastle.

    iam going for a similar game display, we will some how manage to surprise newcastle, and we will dominate and create chances and some how miss the majority game will end 1 1 and we will keep referring to the night we almost beat the magpies that monday night
