I am sorry but this man has absolutely no dynamism. We can't keep saying it's bad luck. We need to take games by the scruff of the neck and dominate games. Saturday's game against Preston is a MUST WIN. If we lose or if more likely we draw again, it could be the end for RDM. Very disappointed again !!
It is just like when McPish was our manger except in the Championship rather than the Prem.
It is not bad luck, bad luck is it happening once or twice, this is every game now and shows a deficiency that RDM can't seem to fix.
Thought we would with this one, take it by the scruff of the neck. That was a good team which was put out. Not too surprised Barnsley ended up on the score sheet; they've been scoring a lot this season. But in the 90th minute again!!! Barnsley have also let in a lot of goals this season; we should have capitalised on that, and didn't.
Suspect they set out to stop us getting into our stride. And it worked.
The same thing is in danger of happening again as happened last season .
The main reason i have not been on this forum as to wait and see how long it took for the call's for RDM'S head to surface .
Let's all take a look back to the beginning of last season with Sherwood he also had a new squad of player';s to work with most of these had never played either in this country or abroad together .
He as sacked after 10 game's for not getting the required return's form wise from the influx of new blood into Villa's squad .
The rest is now history we ended up getting relegated with new manager's appointed on a fixed and temporary basis this resulted in the player's in last season's squad trying to make one manager's system work then another manager come's in and request's something totally different result a squad so disorganised and lacking confidence in what they are expected to do .
This is not a rant at member's who have posted there concern's i to have the same concern's but to sack RDM so soon would i feel be a step backward's in getting our season back on track .
The other point to consider is who would or should replace him if he is fired ? .
Could any fan honestly see any manager with a half decent pedigree come to Villa knowing that they have a maximum of ten game's to turn our Club's fortune's around or face the sack for not achieving set target's performance wise any manager with a half decent C.V would look at these constraint's and term's and run a mile .
I say give RDM time to get his squad well and truly gelled together playing his style and also cut this manager and player's in his squad some slack or face a similar fate as we saw last season .
Think you're right, Rizla, what's more I think Xia will see things that way. I think he'll keep tabs on the way things are working at Villa, via Wryness, but unless he's told there's a serious problem there he'll give RDM time.
I think we have the players (except midfield is a bit thin). Tonight's team was a good one. Reading the reports we were on top and had some good attempts. But that's not enough; things aren't yet clicking. But the answer is keep on working on it. We're not the only team with 90th minute nerves, but that doesn't help.
They may also be used to taking a back hander or two and also have a good insight in how not to follow F.A rule's and Reg's regarding transfer business .
One back hander could be from the Dr for not getting result's and the other from the Club paying him of for fetching Aston Villa's name into disrepute .
