He's another one from that tier of good number 2s (like Steve Clarke) who seem to come up short when they're a manager. He had a very poor time of it at Hibs. I agree with what you say about Brighton's defence, they have conceded the lowest number of goals in the Championship so Hughton and Calderwood must be doing something right.

Bruce, Calderwood, Clemence and Walsh, make a decent collection of Championship coaching talent. I think their abilities and personalities will fit in nicely at Villa.

All of them have been members of coaching setups that have won promotion to the Premiership in the past too.

There seems to be a fair bit of experience and ability in our back room team. It must help the players to have genuine people who know what they're doing, in charge of the day to day training.( I exempt Steve Clarke from any implied criticism of previous coaches and management.)

Someone who knows the club too. Wonder if SBL recommended him to Bruce?

May well have been a conversation between Brian and Steve Round. Even if his job is more on the scouting side, it's good to be building a "Villa family".

As long as we can get enough points (somehow!) to be safe, then I wouldn't want to see us embark on another manager hunt until we've got this season out of the way. The choice would be extremely limited prior to the summer break.

I have to ask though, were we just spending money without a plan in January? Surely Bruce didn't buy these players to play in the restricted way that he now seems to favour. Have we got a plan, or are we just making it up as we stumble along!

I agree with that. The big problem is that I think our problems run a lot deeper than who's manager. We've had a few managers in the past few seasons. I'm not convinced they were all terrible or incompetent but they all struggled. I think we need to look at the ruinous impact Randy Lerner had on the mentality of the club and also some long serving players who've been with us too long, took part in too many failures and who, through various issues, poison any newcomers.
