Just on Bruce, look how good Villa have been under Smith with exactly the same group of players. Does that not tell you something about his managerial capabilities?

Carlos got Swansea playing for about 10 games, then looked what happened

Fair point but ultimately that Swansea squad probably wasn't good enough. Villa have a top two squad or at the very least a squad capable of finishing in the top two. Bruce was playing a way that when it worked it was fine but when it wasn't there was no plan B. He (similarly to Luhukay) was saying the same things over and over again without changing anything bar the players in the side. I'm not saying Bruce is a bad manager just putting the other side of it out there.

I’d rather have Bruce Forsyth than this cretin 

With the Radio Sheffield post game interview going something like this...

So Bruce - what did you think of "insert player name here" ...

Bruce Forsythe "Didn't he do well!!"

1,) If we had lost v Bolton Jos was getting the sack

 

B.) If we lose today, he's sacked and Bruce is coming in

What a load of tosh. Not saying that this wasn't being said BTW but ffs, come on, we aren't children are we? More chance of bruce forsyth coming to Hillsborough.

If you're going to bring rumours to the forum, please try and make them believable, this just won't happen and it doesn't need brains of f---in britain to know that.

As this is the rumour page I’ll add here that I heard Paul Heckingbotham was in talks with us this week, although possibly as an advisor to Jos rather than a replacement.

Seems like not all the rumours posted on here are utter rubbish. Well done Andy. Did you make an appropriate wager at the time?

He was a player manager he was a great player awful manager back then now it’s the opposite way around good manager and has trouble standing up Players after rolling down the tunnel at half time full :duntmatter:time and at the start of the game

Have a read back through this thread. Some prize plums slinging all sorts at Andy. Apologies due from a fair few of our resident 'experts'.

Too right  

Wouldn't it show a bit of class if they apologised and recognised how right he was?

Thank you someone finally said it !!! Don’t want that mess of a manager couldn’t do anything with the money and players he spent on at villa

Bruce has always done a good job wherever he’s been. Villa were a basket case long before he arrived. 

 

Always comes across as a really decent bloke, and was classy after beating us at Wembley.

It's not often I'm right but I'm wrong again. You get used to it after 60 odd years, the first 25 are a bit of a pain though.WTF:

Is it possible the OP was bang on BUT the discussion about Bruce starting in Feb was just starting with the club?

 

If you were the chairman you would try and minimise a caretaker manager scenario. 

 

So, this leads me to believe Bruce was in contact with the club weeks before Jos was sacked.
