  • Excited at half time, deflated at full time. Some of Bruce’s team selections at times leave me baffled. He has his work cut out. New midfielder comes in, teams him with 1 of our worst. Baffling. On another note…whoever keeps voting for Flabby as Motm, s

  • So the January transfer arrived. We had a chance to collect some points. Knowing that kodja was busy in afcon. Early recruitment was a priority. We have an owner who had a chance to prove how serious he is about making villa compete in champions league. T

  • It wouldn’t surprise me Dave. If he reads the comments about Flabby i post he should know he sends me in to apoplexy every time he picks him. He must do it on purpose to annoy me. Sad state of affairs when a winger gets 2 goals and the so called striker g

  • Wait… I thought if we signed Henri ‘the missing piece’ Lansbury we were going to turn into this team of aston globe trotters and turn over every team in our path to automatic promotion ? ….when will we see that constantly hoping for another signing is

  • When I first saw the line up I thought we would get turned over today, however we then played arguably as good as we have all season in the first half. Even at the start of the 2nd half we had 2 very decent chances on the break that would have wrapped the

  • First time we’ve been 2 up all season and they still can’t shut the game out. Sh*t marking for their 2nd. And Ross has gone awol. Cracking goal scored by Hourihane tonight for Barnsley, maybe next week will end better than this one.

  • It won’t matter how many new players we sign with ever present Gabby we will always field 10 men. Selecting Gabby is the most bloody minded thing Steve Bruce has ever done in his career.

  • Have to agree 100% with you Honest Dave, and with the news on McCormack we need to get another ‘goal scorer’ alongside Kodjia. Hopefully, further transfer activity in and out in the next week will define our season. Two weeks until next game so a chance f

  • I’m no fan of Gabby and don’t think he is good enough to lead the line, but he was far from our worst player today and certainly not the reason for us dropping the 2 points. I’m far more p’d off with Grealish – a player who has bags more talent than most

  • Ross is as bad as Gabby by the sounds of it! What is it with these unfit, over weight, over paid *****s acting like pansies and continuously disrespecting the shirt??!! Give youth a go over those 2.

  • So we have an unfit, unreliable, disruptive, attitude-ridden McCormack?? So why t f did SB pick him to start at Wolves last week??? Agree with virtually everything that has been said, especially about the owner. Shopping at Aldi ain’t going to make us the

  • Not sure why Gabby is getting slated. Commentary of Morley and Franksy said was his best game in years (they’ve been scathing of him in the past) and looks like Bruce wasn’t given much choice to pick him seeing as RMC has had to be disciplined, RHM won’t

  • exactly deuce we were always going to be limited on strikers in january – febuary. and our midfield needed some additions. hence it was the drs job to back bruce. this january window has bought a clearer pic to me regarding the dr. i was all for him, but

  • McCormack is a disgrace wants to try working in a factory for 20 grand a yr never mind 40 grand a wk .thought gabby played well at least he’s trying instead of moaning about a gate think Bruce will get it Wright in the end but it won’t be this season I’m

  • quite why we can only ever play 45 mins remains a mystery to me. They should get half their wages and donate the rest to little Charlie

  • These comments bashing the owner are ridiculous. And the lack of understanding of how modern transfers work is baffling. This is not 1987 when you just bought players on a handshake and a simple contract with only the player and manager agreeing “terms.”

  • Agree with garygaryshaw above about Gabby. Also I can’t say he’s not done everything he could try to do to redeem himself this campaign after Bruce apparently gave him the message. The first goal clearly was all Gabby. Also he made a nice over the head

  • Yeh, let’s not knock Gabby, he’s trying. RMC? What’s going on there? He’s evidently decided that he doesn’t want to be here. Get rid quick. Let’s not knock DrX, yet. He’s hardly got his knees under the table and already the usual suspects are calling for
