Aye, in spite of inheriting something of a mess he has steadied the ship nicely.

It's good to see that Steve Bruce appears to be getting his preferred coaches in to Villa.

I'm pleased for Gardner, but our midfield is still the weakest part of our team. It has no shape or cohesion so they look like individuals playing without a plan. Kodjia practically gave up in the second half because he was getting zero support or service from the midfield.

Is the answer as simple as bringing in Tshibola to join Gardner and Jedinak? Or do we need to get a quality midfielder in during the window?

I think that Tshibola should start instead of Westwood, but we need to sign a nailed on first team midfielder. Bacuna's injury puts us straight back to bare bones, and he wasn't first choice until a couple of weeks ago.

Steve needs to show some ambition as he prepares to play Blackburn. Fans can understand the lack of possession against good sides. We accept the need to sit behind the ball and keep it tight, while waiting to hit decent teams on the break. Against Blackburn at home we need to see what our team is capable of, and that means that we have to dominate a poor opposition team at VP.

As far as I'm aware, Bruce has spent his career getting teams to deliver disciplined narrow wins. It's working for us currently even though in an ideal world Aston Villa should be putting an ambitious attacking performance against almost every Championship side especially considering we spent £50million with the goal of promotion.

I'm not expecting a terrific game on Saturday and I'd be happy with 3pts however they are obtained. After our start with our unbalanced squad I think we have to get used to that between now and January when remedial action can take place.

I can accept pragmatism, but I long for a really satisfying gut reaction to a big win!

Par Murphy saying that Colin Calderwood is being lined up to join as Steve Bruce's assistant. Currently assisting Chris Hughton at Brighton.

He would be a good fit with his coaching experience developed the right way working with Hughton.

I think we can safely say, welcome (back) to Aston Villa, Colin: http://www.seagulls.co.uk/news/article/2016-17/colin-calderwood-brighton-hove-albion-3421786.aspx based on this statement.

I'll echo your greeting "welcome back Colin". Another good addition to the SB football management team.

Brighton have become much tighter defensively under Colin Calderwood. Let's hope he can have the same influence on our defence.
