Great appointment, pay the money to get his favoured number 2 alongside him and his team from Hull and let him do what he does in this league. Win more often than not.

Welcome and good luck, though I'm not keen on Keith Bertchin and Stephen Clemence coming too, if that's true.
Not just because of their Bluenose connections but yet again we're appointing a manager without also getting who would probably be their preferred assistants.

Who are his preferred assistants and I guess Clarke and Bond are clearing their offices?

Welcome Steve Bruce, he has the know how in this league to win some games and has the best chance of getting us back up.

Hendrie still did though  ;)

It is what it is but I think for where we are it's the correct decision.

He wins us some games and pretty much everyone will be fully on board as he'll be the first Villa manager in about 6 years to do this.

It really shouldn't be that hard at the level we're at now.

Fixed. SFB? This is going to take some time to get used to.

Right now, being positive:

I think he's a very decent chap
His favourite Division is the Championship.
He loves to get his teams promoted.
He'll understand when we sack him.
He's lost a lot of weight and looks well.
He lives locally.
We may not sing his name but we'll all be behind his team.
