Hmmm... For someone to merit getting time they need to be taking things in the right direction whereas we seem to be going backwards (since the early parts of the season) under the Regular Draw Merchant.

The only thing giving RDM more time will do is complicate any quest for promotion this season.

I think the good Dr won't act too hastily. I can see RDM getting pressure but I don't think he will get the sack. His advisers will be showing him the Derby model and the amount of managers and interference from owners that has happened there, Nottingham Forest as well.

I am trying to stay positive, whilst underwhelmed at his appointment I look at the players we have now and I don't think Pearson or Moyes would have recruited or acheived much better

Aye, the two other managers we supposedly looked to have done even worse than RDM has.

It might be worth giving him a bit of extra time if only to wait for the telegraph to finish publishing their findings which could rule out potential appointments.

Dr T has done a motivational video for the players at RDM's request apparently. That should earn RDM some brownie points!

I know if I was sticking to what I said previously, RDM would need to win two of the next three games.

But balls to that now. I'm sick to death of Villa not winning. Pack your bags, Roberto. One win in eleven is not good enough.

One win in eleven and four harder teams to play after the international break. Dr T has to act now!

He's got to go.

I think I said a few weeks ago that playing Westwood will get him the sack and if the axe does fall soon it will be true. Him getting picked today was baffling in the extreme and he rewarded that with being culpable for the second goal.

There is absolutely no sensible reason for allowing RDM to continue .... and to be totally honest the sooner I can stop typing the three letters R .. D .. M, the sooner my blood pressure can get back to somewhere near normal!

I think that our hard core fan brigade will make it difficult to employ Steve Bruce, but he's the obvious no nonsense professional who would steady the ship and start to give the players confidence again. I think he's probably been approached already. As I said I worry about a percentage of fans who would give him a hard time even if he was successful. Based on the fact that a number of fans seem to hate Birmingham City more than they love the Villa.

I've always had a lot of time for Steve Bruce. I recall being sat behind the dugouts for a game against Hull a couple of years back and him getting a bit of stick but credit to the chap he took it in good grace and even played to it a bit waving at the stands etc. In spite of everything I think he'd love to get the job too.

I would be happy if he was appointed but agree that some fans wouldn't like him.

Stan Collymore is banging the drum for Nigel Pearson.

Pearson has a psychotic personality imo. He can't hold it together in front of the cameras so imagine what he's like away from the public on the training ground. It appears he's about to get the sack from his job for his unacceptable behaviour. The guy's a ticking time bomb.

"There's a team here that is good, it will come good for us.

"We will keep working. I have faith in the team, I believe in the team and I think that, come the end of the season, they will be up there.

"It's been a bad day at the office for sure. We are 10 points from sixth place so it's still all possible.

"It's normal that when the results of the team aren't what you expect, the results will be questioned. That's part of our job."

He's living in cloud cuckoo land.

Telegraph are more reliable than most with Villa news:
Roberto Di Matteo set to be sacked by Aston Villa - after just 122 days as manager
