You cant blame it all on garde please as i said before in my fairly harsh posts. he has come in mid season no time to work with tactics, get to know players strengths even learn the language a miracle worker cant work if youve got nothing to work with i dont think theyll stay on the downfall as some will get snapped by mid table pl teams and youll be able to rebuild in no lower than league 1.
I have held back my opinion until i had calmed myself down, as I wanted to avoid writing anything untoward in the heat of the moment, however.... If I were to place a monkey whether it spoke English or "French" in a suit and throw him in the home dugout at Villa Park there would have been more satisfying results quite frankly. On a side note has is Rafa Benitez still growly outwards? Bearded pig
@264What's your reasoning for that statement? Only a Birmingham City fan would be likely to say that, so if you're not one why good riddance?
So the real question here is how many leagues are we about to drop.No one is going to buy Villa at the £200m the yank wants in its current sorry state and he's not going to put any more money in to make things better.The rebuilding plan looks like it will start as we hit mid-table in the 1st division (or at least I hope it will start there)It could be worse - I could be a Chelsea fan...
Gosh all this sackcloth and ashes over aston villa. It is a harsh fact of life that one team per year has to finish bottom. This year it is villa's turn. Like most other clubs they will get over it. Look at Leicester and West Ham in recent years. You could have 20 excellent managers in EPL but one will end up bottom. Sometimes you need that kick of the backside to sort yourself out.
@266 would you take big Sam as villas next manager......knowing the pants football style he applies.how do you motivate players who are on long contracts with high wages,make em play With the reseves,punish them,if they dont want to give everything every game,what can you do,drop them...they still get paid. prime example Chelsea
@266 and he had time and funds to turn things around........under Garde you played man city how many times....how many games did he manage total ,you have a poor squad with little conection to the club. you actually play some good football the games ive seen here on tv live in Norway .only when you concede heads go down and give up.think its a lot deeper than just Gardes fault
@258 Thought I explained in the message how I blamed Garde. He didn't do the bizz. Did and do Ferguson, Warnock, Big Sam (real managers) roll over and let the players rule the roost and loaf about? Do they fizz. If managers don't have a huge influence maybe we can manage without them. Boom boom.
think one of the main culprits to blame for the demise of English football is the media,sosial media too.how quick they are to publish embarassing pix ect,tear down anything which is good,footballers are people too,who get drunk and fall over when on holiday,they have done this for many years,but now everything is news.pressure on teams because of the media.eg LVG,Jose ect.
Perfect timing. Good riddance, Villa.
the signs are all there for villa to struggle next season and possibly drop into lge1 .for long standing EPL teams relegation it is a culture shock, the yoyo teams Hull, Norwich , Burnley etc will be there or thereabouts, Fulham after many years in EPL were relegated and are in a relegation fight for the second year in the championship,bad owners& several managers are the reason
@72 Lots of big clubs in League 1 as well. Trophies and past glories mean nothing. Watford, Bournemouth and Swansea in Prem, Norwich 4 out of the last 5 seasons, Hull a possibility next season again. Count up their major trophies between them. Not many. Too many clubs and the people that run them have this "but we're a big club" mentality and hide behind it. Villa the latest example.
RE 218. Posted by Puddled JemimaduckAccording to reports, Fabian Delph was bitten during the pitch invasion so not exactly trouble free. Maybe that explains partly why he left the club.
