Hold on!? We've been promoted??
No but when fans are actually whinging about the margin of goals we are winning games. I have resigned myself to the fact that there are some that will never give him any credit. Its very irritating


Not me. I've managed my expectations to an all time low.

My bunting went straight up after that magnificent 2-1 home win to the mighty Fulham. I'm not even pissed that it blew away in the gale force winds last night.  👍

Villa75 sit down this may come as a shock. We're not in the Premier League anymore, unfortunately we can only play teams in the same league as us

And we're even beating some of them! Like Fulham!! At home!!!

The cheek of some fans. Wanting more. Hound them out or, at the very least, ridicule them after a fantastic home win.

All hail Bruce! I say.

If he gets us promoted he has succeeded. If he doesn't he's failed. It's as clear cut as that.

I'd like to be where Wolves are. Unlike us, they don't 'need' to climb the table.

Is that what Bruce is waiting for? I'll email him to confirm we're allowed to be top before then.

I might remind him about last May as well, whilst I'm at it.

I hope we build on the improving points gathering.  I voted to give Bruce a little bit more time and he has scrambled effectively.  I still think he was the wrong choice of manager but, like others, after McLeish, Lambert, Sherwood, Garde, Black, K Mac and RDM I was suffering from moaning about managers fatigue and decided to let Bruce do whatever he was going to do.  I now would like to see Bruce improve as the team improves.  Perhaps he is better than the thud and blunder escapee from the Championship reputation that goes before him. Perhaps there is a good Premiership manager in Steve Bruce.  To find out would be nice.




From what we have seen hes an analogue manager in a digital world.

It's best sometimes not to engage with idiocy. You'll be thankful in the long run.

VillaAlways isn't that bad. We're only having some friendly banter.

Sorry. I just realised. You weren't talking about VillaAlways, were you?

You meant I shouldn't email Brucey.
