I'd definitely have Adomah in the squad ahead of him

How many assists did Adomah get last season, into double figures wasn't it?

Poor player who hopefully Bruce will take with him when he fecks off out of here, and to think I had to listen on the coach on the way home from Bristol how good he is and better than any other Villa players, dear me

Good to see a lot of people now seeing the player I suspected we were getting.  Some of the comments on this thread after the germany tournament were massively over the top.  What we bought was a guy who was passable cover for right back and right mid and acceptable as a right wing back.  Adomah is a better player with a far better record (even if he is also fairly limited at times) but Elmo gives him the option to smack long balls out to the wing so he plays regularly.

The three pricks behind me were slagging Elmo today when there was no one within a mile of him trying to support or make a run.

I just couldn't help myself. I asked the bloke what the fuck he was supposed to do when none of his team mates offered any help.

He said he should "run and take everyone on".

OK, brilliant.

Don't get me wrong, he's a bang average player, but playing in a side set up to defend, and defend deep, he had no chance.

I did he assume he'd been bought to play wing back and not that he'd be ever present on the right wing

He's not as good as Albert end of but might be worth trying at right back as suggested earlier.

Thought he was misused. Won everything in the air and cleary had the beating in a foot race with his full back. But would prefer AA given his form last year

Yup, three at the back with wing backs. That lasted what, one game? Bodger Bruce and his square peg in a round hole approach to football strikes again.

His game  changed yesterday instead of trying to move the ball forward he was attempting to hit  the ball forward and twice from really good balls  from Terry he struggled to control the damm thing  in a wide forward position on the right when he could have done some damage. 

All in all going backwards rather than forwards with his displays.

That Bruce has no settled idea of his favourite style of play or formation is one of the biggest indictments.  How can the players know what they're supposed to be doing if the manager doesn't?

Should have scored from Green's cross early in the second half but slipped as it came in - a bit unlucky. The pen was a 50/50 shout.

He should have scored, shocking attempt, it was never a pen. We might see a more improved player when JK is fit and firing.

The last two performances have been poor.  I wish Bruce would stop instructing Johnstone to kick every ball in his general direction.  It is such a poor tactic.
