Has Moyes brought a club up from the Championship? No he failed. Has RDM brought a club up from the Championship? Yes he succeeded. So in the respects of bringing a club up from the Championship our Manager has succeeded, which is relevant.

Major signings -

2009
Youssuf Mulumbu (CM)
Gonzalo Jara (FB)

2010
Paul Scharner (CB)
Marc-Antoine Fortune (ST)
Peter Odemwingie (WG)
Nicky Shorey (LB)
Boaz Myhill (GK)
Gabriel Tamaş (CB)
Steven Reid (CM)


Best signings were Mulumbu and Odemwingie. He made Chris Brunt captain for the Premier League season. Scott Carson (GK) was his captain in the Championship. He made Jonas Olsson vice-captain for both those seasons. I don't think they had a vice-captain the previous season.

I really don't care who he signs, sells or releases as long as we get promoted. I do however find it unlikely that we can progress without getting rid of the rotten core in this club.

Me to.
Given how bad we were last season - I don't think much assessment of the current squad is needed. I cant think of many areas where we don't need improvement. Given that ayew, gana are pretty likley to move on - he pretty much needs players in all areas. Waiting until after training camp which I think ends July 3/4 only leaves around 4 weeks until kick off.

Perhaps there will be more familiar faces than we think on Aug 6...

Just seen this in the news, think we could do this to some squad? Not Gabby of course the little s**t will keep coming back for more.

He really needs to do better. The results alone are not impressive, but the fact that he actively uses Kojak instead of pushing Ayew or Murphy up top makes me wanna slit my wrists.

I don't like how he's picking Bacuna and Westwood so much. To me they personify why we're in the mess we've been in for so long. And over these next few days he's gonna have to decide whether keeping a rookie in goal and keeping Ayew around is a good idea. Because right now it's looking counter productive.

I'm sure he's experienced enough to know that when it comes to poorly performing players, it's them or him.

Gollini needs a break and Ayew withdrawn as he's a selfish bastard who thinks he's one he'll of a lot better than he really is.

I've not seen enough of the game to be critical of the midfield but my biggest concern is that by all accounts we dominated for 45 mins yet clearly RDM was out-thought in the 2nd half.

And not for the first time.

too early to be pressing the panic button, it will take time but IMO were heading in the right direction, a few positive results can soon shoot you up this league table, keep the faith it will all come good.

You're wrong we are Villa fans we must over react in a knee jerk manner, say we knew this would happen and we never wanted RDM in the first place?

Or we could be sensible and do as you say?

The most vocal will take the knee jerk route!

We cannot persevere with a tried and tested method that fails though. It's harsh to drop a young 'keeper but he needs taken out of the firing line for a few games. It's his shirt to lose and, IMO, he's done enough to lose it.

It's professional football. Bad luck.

Ayew has an attitude problem (on top of his selfishness) so he can step off for a while too. There's not a lot of point in having hungry youngsters keen to impress if all they're doing is watching Mr. Misery-Arse sulk around the pitch. How demoralising for them.

I don't think it's knee-jerk to expect that, at a club like Aston Villa and with the ambitions of the owner and manager, if you don't give it the 110% Ron Saunders then you're out.

Tony Morley said in an interview (I think after his goal of the season against Everton) that he said "see you next week" to Ron Saunders. Ron replied "...if selected".

No more automatic selection. Perform or be dropped. Villa should stop being a fucking holiday resort for players.

The truth is I don't like managers who can't make tough decisions and think logically. Ayew has played on the left wing at Wednesday, on the right wing against Rotherham, Derby, Huddersfield etc but he's not a f#cking winger. So the only conclusion is RDM is putting him in the side simply because he's a "name". If we're gonna play 442 then we need two actual wingers out wide and two strikers up top. Constantly playing people out of position has never been conducive when it pertains to the balance of a team.

I also think he needs to look at the 433 system in the coming games. Many of the goals we've let in have been down to the lack of protection our midfield four are giving to the defence and this has to be addressed asap.

He needs time to get this massive job right but I just hope he's able to see the big picture and isn't utterly naive like the last several managers we've had.

Some people need to chill.
It's a new owner, new manager and almost a completely new team.
We will improve and gel with games, we will get stronger as the season goes on.
Hell we are already way better than last year !

One win in eight games against the teams we've played is diabolical and it's even worse when you consider the leads we've thrown away. Di Matteo under pressure already, I really wouldn't be surprised to see him sacked if we don't beat Ipswitch.

The decision will be in the hands of Xia, Wyness and Round. Xia seems an implusive character and I have no doubt he'll be seething inside right now. Wyness doesn't have a trigger happy record at Aberdeen or Everton though and Round seems like a level headed kind of man.

I think RDM gets the next two or three games to get it right. Lose on Saturday then he'll be on borrowed time for sure but I'm not sure they would push the button that quickly. I think they'd probably wait until October first because though we're not winning he's not losing that much either it's just frustration with the team not being able to see out a game.

Well playing 4 strikers is not working? To many selfish greedy bastards? RDM needs to look at a different system? But he decided to spunk all his transfer budget on strikers and not midfielders?

I will have a tenner on with you mate that should we lose against Ipswich he will be gone, or an announcement will be made on Monday morning. No doubt at all.
