Villa Fans Are Revolting + Bruce!

Villa fans are revolting. Sure we all know that, but this time reports are suggesting that they are abandoning their club and refusing to buy season tickets.

On top of that David O'Dreary, the man who ran across OUR pitch to salute the Villa fans best mate Doug Ellis, has been voted as the most unpopular manager in the Midlands.

Think about it, Steve Bruce and West Brom's Bryan Robson oversaw our teams being relegated and yet the Vilers have voted their manager the worst!

So how did Birmingham City manager Steve Bruce rate?

Not brilliantly it has to be said. In a report I did yesterday I quoted Bruce saying he nearly left but that the majority of fans are behind him (you can still join in with our current poll relating to Bruce) but according to the Football Fans Census on Midlands teams, 78% of Blues fans were against him.

The question the pollsters asked was: Given the resources at his disposal how would you rate your club's current manager?

Steve Bruce: Very Good 0 per cent, Good 4 per cent, OK 18 per cent, Bad 43 per cent, Very Bad 35 per cent.

The others:

O'Dreary: Very Good 0 per cent, Good 3 per cent, OK 11 per cent, Bad 45 per cent, Very Bad 41 per cent

Hoddle: Very Good 0 per cent, Good 2 per cent, OK 16 per cent, Bad 51 per cent, Very Bad 31 per cent


Robson: Very Good 0 per cent, Good 6 per cent, OK 27 per cent, Bad 56 per cent, Very Bad 11 per cent

At least with Steve he shows he has passion, with o'Dreary he looks like he is dead from the neck down. What happened with Cunningham? he was great for you and the Republic

I think their support will hold up, inabox. They will hang on to most of their players and will be looking for a quick return. Good move by the board in backing bruce, IMHO

Guess we will see FEn, a good few bluenoses would disagree with you right now, as our poll shows.

O'Leary knows nothing about it takes to be a good manager or even how to get the fans 2 support u.
Bobbymsb
Couldn't agree more Bobbymsb. I wouldn't wish O'Dreary on any other club. He's a joke. I think Blues will find it hard to bounce straight back and from talking to my Bluenose mates, Bruce will be out before Xmas if they don't get off to a flyer
