I expect the current coaching set up to remain until their contracts expire and the only thing I can see changing this is us positioning in the relegation zone during next season.

Fair comment, it is unfortunate that players like Micah Richards and Ross McCormack who don't seem bothered cost us at least £80,000 a week in lost revenue, money we can ill afford to just spunk down the toilets!

One thing I never realised was that Tom Cairney who scored the winning goal for Fulham, Bruce had previously sold from Hull’s academy having never given Cairney a chance to play for Hull’s senior team.

So Bruce hasn't changed one little bit, youth will never get a look in unless desperation sets in!

I’d sooner Dwight Yorke was manager than Steve Bruce.

Article in Telegraph, doesn't really tell us anything new, except that Bruce himself still doesn't know what's going on, which is strange.

What a state of affairs. If even SB doesn't know whats going on that says it's a shambles to me.

It's all speculation at the moment, for all we know Xia could come out of the woodwork tomorrow and tell everyone that everything's going to continue as normal, and everyone's ready to fight.

Although it does feel like something's going on behind the scenes whatever that might be, just have to hope at the end of it all it's the right thing for the club, and we can go into next season with some confidence.

Just let them have their holidays, forget the Fake news....service will resume after this short break.

IMO! I can't see Xia selling but I can see management and players.

Football fans abhor a vacuum - if there's no news we generally fill it with worst case scenarios. A pessimist is never disappointed.

Presumably if we can't even afford to pay £4m tax bill without taking out a loan, then we won't be able to sack Bruce, so it's going to be a question as to whether he's willing to work under the present predicament, and if not it will just be a case of putting someone like Calderwood in (temporary?) charge.

He's only on a one-year rolling contract though, so compensation would hopefully be virtually nothing. But Bruce is far from the main issue though, I want Xia gone and then we can focus on potato head.

Yep - Bruce is a footnote. The club is being run poorly. Get the foundations right. Only more turmoil will come if Xia continues his disastrous spell in charge.

So it seems we’re going to be in some form of limbo for a week or three?! Precious time disappearing down the drain along with money. I’m still 50/50 with Bruce until such time as we know what’s going on with the owner, is he coming up with the money or will he be forced to sell? We can’t deny that Bruce seems to have the contacts in the game to get loan players in, but the flip side is that he hasn’t had the ability to get us up with what was arguably the best squad the championship has seen. I think it’s inevitable that Grealish will be sold, unfortunately, and at that point Bruce becomes pointless as far as I’m concerned. I’m edging towards Dean Smith, the reason being that he is a Villa fan and I think the Villa managers job could be a labour of love for a period of time. Smith is proven in these leagues and is used to shopping in these leagues. Perhaps Kevin McDonald could be his assistant and act as his eyes and ears with regard to our U23 players who we will likely have to utilise. If we could introduce a Martin Laursen into the fold that might be ideal.

Be an out of work manager next. No one will leave a job to come here - and I don't see us paying compensation.

Hope they hurry, Bruce will be in demand as they say 'No manager has won promotion to the Premier League more than the 57-year-old', everybody will be after him!

Tony is probably hoping Leeds can persuade Bruce to join them, so we don't have to pay compo to sack him and can charge Leeds a few quid instead!

15,000 votes? To be fair to the article though it doesn't say fans of which club...

"In a poll of BirminghamLive, which attracted more than 15,000 votes, 62 per cent of fans said they wanted Bruce to stay on at Villa, opposed to 38 per cent who wanted him gone."
