Nobody, least of all me, has ever claimed that Remi Garde was a brilliant manager.  What is claimed, especially by me, is that he should be treated with respect as anybody in any job is entitled to expect.  Not simply binned off as part of the francophobia that gripped our club.

Agreed, Brian.

When we just about stayed up, I thought we'd bin Sherwood (who should only ever have been a short term solution) and give a new manager some funds to invest in the squad.

I don't think Garde did a good job once he arrived, but the most incredible thing is that I thought we had a chance in 2015/16. Looking at that squad, it is absolutely one set for relegation.

Every year back then felt like a lesson. We escaped, and I liked to think 'right, this is a chance to regroup and make sure this doesn't happen again'. But every summer we got it wrong, and essentially 2010-18 just felt like one constant dropped bollock.

Gabby was running the club. The Manager wasn't backed, the chairman didn't give a fuck and everyone was turning their backs on the whole episode whilst King Agbonlahor did as he pleased and sowed discontent, division and apathy throughout the squad.

In my opinion he should have been removed.

Watching MOTD just wondering how much Villa paid out on Richards and Jenas in total for absolutely nothing in return. We're enjoying better days now but I still get angry.

I know there's the obvious caveat that if it bothers me then don't click on the thread, which is clearly true. However I can't believe we're still talking about this guy. He barely played for us, he was one of lots and lots of people who played a part in taking us down, and there are many more culpable people than he was. Let it go.

The problem isn't that we paid those two for next to nothing in return, the problem is we could think of another 20 players from a period of 6 or 7 years who fit in that description.

I think itís his current omni-presence on the media that is causing the discussion. If it was Guzan or Gabby had the same profile it would be the same.

Just watching MOTD best FA Cup finals and Micah Richards asked Gary Lineker about what were his best attributes as he had never seen him play and I thought well we never seen you for the last 3 years of your time with us and you were on £60,000 a week.

Anyone else see Micah, Shearer and Lineker on the subject of the best ten Premier League centre-backs?

Take a wild guess which Irish no.5 didn't even get a mention!!!
