Sack him now and we start to become a derby county or Leeds united

We need to get another 3 points before we become a Leeds United.

Review at 15 matches but he needs to win at least 3 before that - sick of it...

I've put until the end of the season but with the caveat if we're still only a couple of points above drop zone, or worse, on Jan 1st I'd sack him then. Yes, results have been atrocious and right now I'm not convinced by him but he's got to be given more of a chance in my book. Dare I say it, solid top half finish this season and promotion next would be acceptable.

Well it was obvious that rebuilding the squad (again) would take time to gel but to do what we are doing every match, is a massive problem which seems like never going away. We only turn up for 30 minutes or so and we switch off too easily either not taking our chances and giving away soft goals.

These games come thick and fast, with that and training why are we still not putting the ball in the net and being more focused, showing energy and a willingness to win for more than a third of the match? No excuses really that I can think of anymore.

Do you have to "gel" to pass a ball accurately or make considered and effective substitutions?

I can understand our defence needing time to work together and even forgive the odd daft or late goal at this stage but that wouldn't matter of we had already scored 3...

Just realised that may look like I am disagreeing with IanJ when I'm not  ;-)

After 10 games in this very poor league with the squad we have, the bare minimum would be W5 D3 L2.

Big Fat Sams Claret and Blue Army !

If he became our manager, I can't see myself buying tickets to watch us. We're never going to win anything. I just want to see Villa play attacking football.

Big Fat Head Sam is a knob.

I'm waiting for someone to suggest Nigel Pearson.

Well keep off twitter as people are saying bring Sherwood back

I think you'll have to get used to the idea. If we're going anywhere, it certainly isn't up.

Sack now, never rated him as a manager. All bluster and no ideas.

Keep. We'll win on Saturday, it will give everyone a lift and we'll go on a little run. We'll beat SHA next month and everyone will love him.

We seem to be regressing as a team now. We've lost that spark and we're not really creating that much. Our results have been pretty bad considering how much we've spent and why do we not yet have a formation that suits us? Why are our substitutions bewildering and arguably a cause of our goal concessions. Its getting very hard to defend RDM.
