Oh for the distraction of football – fresh from the departure of Steve Bruce and his coaching staff, a familiar face in Under 23 manager Kevin MacDonald took caretaker charge of Aston Villa once more as we headed to The Den and Millwall earlier today.

Was it going to be third time lucky for a man who has never been sure if he actually wanted the job?

Well, in short, no – but was anyone expecting any different?

Millwall dominated everything that counted and pretty deservedly took all three points, okay we had far greater possession but I’m not sure KMac managed to get the message across that the players are both capable of, and should be encouraged to, do something with it rather than faffing around at the back like they were all new to the game.

Then again it seems it’s a fair consensus that KMac may as well have stayed at home given he had no discernable effect on the performance, we may well have just had a video of Steve Bruce on repeat for all the difference it made.

Meh and double meh.
