Aston Villa have once again gotten off to a miserable start to life in the Championship, and sit in the bottom half of the table with only one win registered on the board so far this term.
Manager Steve Bruce sits a man under pressure at the time of writing, and will be hoping his side can come away from the game at Barnsley with a positive result to give him some rest bite.
The Villa fans though here in the Tavern have been having plenty of discussion this week, and there are opinions flying around left, right, and centre with regards to if the club should stick with to their guns and keep faith with Bruce.
Our landlord has taken the side of the Villa fans wanting Bruce to stay though, and he thinks the club have the right man at the helm to turn things around.
Bruce is well known for performing to a high standard in the Championship. following successful spells with Hull and Birmingham City to name but two.
At the moment, there is little out there in terms of replacements who could come in and do a better job than Bruce, and it is this that is the main reason for which Villa need to keep hold of their manager.
He has the players at his disposal, knows the league well, and has enough experience to be able to turn the screw and bring results in to Villa Park if given the time.
Villa fans, what do you think? Should you sack Bruce? Let us know your thoughts!
