Poor thus far.

I expected better in the post Lerner era, but we seem set on repeating a lot of the same mistakes albeit at a lower level.

Must do better or go.

I really don't think that it's Wyness fault. He was put in place by Tony to help Tony with the decision making process. Tony ultimately has the final say but Keith is there to provide his opinion, pull the information together, execute the process etc. Keith is involved in all aspects of the club not just the playing field. That is Bruce's domain. So if Bruce does fail, then there is no reason for Keith to go as well.

Heís taken over at a different period in our history. From the outside the club appears to have stabilised so fair dues.  Donít think for one one moment that bruceís Performance will directly impact on him directly

I'm not convinced we will make the Premier League. We look too disjointed and haven't yet given me the belief that we as a team belong in a division higher than this. If we do get promoted I could see this team getting drubbed weekly. We haven't taken this opportunity to build something lasting and positive. Talk of 'The Villa Engine' is nice but the first team don't play it, so, erm, what's the point?

Wyness seems like a good chap but if we don't get promoted then I would have to question his approach.

Maybe I'm asking for too much too soon.

We will get up eventually. Have faith.

Better to try to do it this season as next season would be very difficult I reckon. Doubt likes of Kodjia and Chester would stay another year at this level and then we have the OAPs in the squad being a year older.

He has a twitter account if that helps.

Last season was always going to be a big ask whoever was in charge, we were in an absolute mess.

Indeed. Also Sunderland is making our last season look a whole lot better.

"We will get up eventually "   I am sure leeds and forest have thought that for years.

This year or we could be adrift a while

Nothing strikes me as over dramaticising the situation than thinking we're never going to get promoted again and will spend the rest of our history down here.

I'm well aware likes of Forest, Leeds and Sheff Weds didn't get up but when you look at those three they all had major financial difficulties after being relegated and all were relegated within a few years of coming down here.

We're in a much strong position and should be challenging every year for promotion which we are doing this season.

All are clubs who've spent a good old chunk of their history being shit.

Has anyone asked for that?  A few people have suggested that he will have to accept a big chunk of responsibility if we're not promoted this season, but that's far from the same thing.

Newcastle were in a mess too but they fairly well stormed back up while getting rid of Sissoko, Wijnaldum etc. Benitez had a plan though and his signings clearly reflected that.
