He failed over 18 months not just one game.

He said he'd get us there or thereabouts ... and he did.

There were three better sides than us last season.

It's not a crime.

No-one said it was a crime.

We know there were three better teams than us last season. It was Bruce's job to ensure there weren't. That's the point.

Indeed. He also guaranteed the play offs as a condition of his continuing employment in his first season and survived because Wyness liked him. We had far better candidates willing to come who wouldn't guarantee that.

and where does this information come from?. if he'd guaranteed that (impossible obviously) then he'd have had a clause in his contract which meant the sack if he failed no doubt, meaning the club wouldn't have to pay him off

He’s not the one dictating the expectations of his performance. Him saying he’d get us there or there abouts doesn’t mean that was an acceptable result. It wasn’t, promotion was the target nothing else.

So to short term plan it, him fuck it up, rinse and repeat the next year, is not acceptable. Nor is it for the board to keep the bugger on I might add.

The recent turmoil has made me realise just how much Villa are a constant in my life, it is ghastly imagining a world without them. I dpn't think I could bring myself to ever support another team if the club disappeared.

Surely with a club as large, old and famous as the Villa someone will pitch up and take it off Tony's hands. I hope so, as I have zero confidence in him to get us through this. When Man City had issues wioth their dodgy Thai owner (Taksim Shinawatra?) they managed to pull a rabbit out of the hat by finding very wealthy new owners. Villa are far bigger than Man City were at the time, lets hope this ends well.

We are still a bigger club than Man City.

I agree. It is a shitty state of affairs when pisspot teams like City and Chelsea have managed to spend their way big, but rules stop larger clubs like Villa from doing the same. I don't see what is fair about FFP, load of old bollocks.

We did spend big though and still achieved nothing.

Have to say spending 50m and not even being able to get promoted from the flipping championship has to be worse than what we failed to achieve under Lerner.

Before we start beating ourselves up again, I wonder how many clubs' last six Wembley appearances have all been against clubs above them in the league? We never seem to get a good cup run in a year when the top teams go out early.

According to a report in The Times we now have to pay Terry an extra months salary if he doesn’t find another club and the same for gabby - Meaning a potential £1m for July.

I'm sure our man Terry will let us off, and there's no way Gabby will take that from his beloved club whilst in our predicament either i'm sure.

Just out of interest, has anybody at the club actually spoken to Bruce this summer?

his son

I've just seen a twitter photo from this afternoon and he's still on holiday in what looks like Vilamoura marina. He told the Villa fan he had the photo with "we're in real trouble" so I imagine he's being kept in the loop as to the goings on. Not much he can do from Villa Park that he can't do from there.
