    Aston Villa v Newcastle

    just to help Raza out a bit here...... Joelinton was signed July 2019 (40m) - (fair to assume he was coming in regardless of which sap took the managers job) Saint Maximim was signed August 2019 (20m) Krafth was signed Aug 2019 (5m) There were no January signings for the 2019 - 2020 season...

    Agreed but Bruce was an inept buffoon who could do better long before Ashley went looking for him

    Aston Villa v Newcastle

    I'm not even sure what we are discussing now mate other than we both agree Ashley has no interest in anything other than PL survival Set the bar low with blokes who have a poor track record Bruce is the one who will take the flak but its clear he isnt to blame

    Aston Villa v Newcastle

    Its reported that Ashley was disappointed in 5th place because he'd been sold the dream of Champions League by Llambias who convinced him to shell out for Cisse in the January transfer window That disappointment of having to fight on two fronts without massive CL windfalls was the distinct...

    Yep - exactly the reason I used the word 'struggling' not failing in my reply to him

    Aston Villa v Newcastle

    You're not suggesting that Ashley's appointments are given all of the necessary tools to succeed are you? Of course he's struggling (see my car engine analogy) - he was entirely the wrong appointment from day one

    Aston Villa v Newcastle

    We started that season 11 games unbeaten so he wasnt forced into playing any system You say that back then we had players who could attack - exactly, we now dont (or not many of them) I'll throw some names in from that squad for you to compare to today's.....Ba, Cisse, Tiote, Colloccini...

    Aston Villa v Newcastle

    I've no idea what point you are trying to make mate You dont seem to want to give anyone credit for a 5th place finish or the fact we reached the quarter finals the following season in the European cup yet you want to hammer Bruce regardless of the state of our squad for struggling this season...

    Aston Villa v Newcastle

    I get that Mac but it wasnt obvious at the time I was arguing with people on here claiming that Ashley was destroying the club while I was enjoying watching us qualify for Europe Imagine that - arguing with our own fans saying that I shouldn't be going to St James' Park while watching us...

    But you can't categorically state that it wasnt anything to do with covid when he has been quoted as saying it was a factor You're just putting your opinion over as fact

    Aston Villa v Newcastle

    Of course I give him some credit - getting Cisse in the January window made a huge difference to an already positive season I was arguing with people whinging on about not replacing Caroll while enjoying watching Ba knock them in for the first half of the season

    Aston Villa v Newcastle

    Rondon and Perez (26 goals between them without checking) have been replaced by Joelinton and Wilson Given that Joelinton was on the radar under Benitez he obviously isnt a genuine Bruce signing We've replaced 26 goals ish with whatever Wilson can muster Our most creative midfielder has been...

    The Rafa Benitez Thread

    I genuinely dont understand you at times Keggy Benitez has stated that Covid is a factor in him leaving yet you attempt to argue that it's got nothing to do with Covid I'm not sure why you would even go there ?

    The Rafa Benitez Thread

    You said his reasons for leaving were nothing to do with covid yet he is quoted as mentioning covid in his reasons for leaving Or are you suggesting he would be leaving to be closer to his family regardless of covid
