3 PLAYED 3 WON -I could get used to this euphoria & want more !
Ok fair does the performances have not been great but its the result that counts ??- ( been reminded of that before )
Even I, the eternal Bruce pessimist thinks that performances will improve ! if 'he' allows the team to play non negative tactics !
Right going back to my ouzo mezee !
Ant team news surfaced for this weekends match ?
Yes it's good to have 3 wins but the football has been shocking.
Thank the good lord we haven't played a team of quality yet so we can find some form before we do.
I think we will have too much for Ipswich with the squad we have so a tight win for the villa.
Just hope the big K can get a goal to boost his confidence.
Have a great week end all.
I don't like this optimism!! That usually leads to a defeat. Keep cautious, keep slagging Bruce, keep expecting a defeat.
I hope he plays Bjarnasson again, the more he plays, the better he will get. I hope for a positive outcome. :-)
Two wins under our belt (three if you include the cup). Optimism must be sky high. Ipswich aren't great and Mick is no longer manager. So a typical Villa loss!!!
Maybe not though. Maybe there's enough grit in the team to go and get the result. Probably won't be pretty, not because of the way Steve sets us up, but the way lower Championship clubs try to get a result.
Bruce has given most of his squad playing time, so difficult to predict how we'll be set up.
Another 3 goals to us. 3-0. UTV
Hmmmm - not a great result especially against 10 men although that probably worked against us as it made Ipswich sit back. Positives are a goal for Kodjia and Thor playing. Still don’t understand Jedi in defence, surely Tuanzebe would be a better option? Then play one of the many right backs we have in their proper position.
Still, 7 points from 9 is good and I expect a little rotation for Wednesday. Brentford will be our toughest test yet.
Think Bruce is changing the squad partly with the knowledge we've got two more league matches coming up quickly.
Great assist and goal from McGinn and Kodjia. When that happened thought we would walk it. Pity about their goal; think it was probably an error of judgement for Nyland to go for it, as he didn't have a clear run at it, so it was awkward to try to catch it.
In terms of losses and draws only Leeds have a better record than us so far. Let's hope we can beat Brentford and Reading. The Brentford one is tricky.
Brentford will be a tough test, I'm not confident as we are not playing well. Glad to see Kodjia off the mark and Bjarnasson playing. We need a CB.
I expect to see Bruce tinker for this one, strange to say he needs to win on Weds as he always seems to be one defeat away from "Bruce out!"
Maybe the owners should just get rid, but will the boo boys be happy with anyone?
My opinion remains the same, is Bruce the man for the job, probably not, but we need some stability and as long as Bruce is boss then most likely Villa are doing well.
