Aston Villa

They spent £51.5m in transfer fees alone in the summer

Fair enough they sold some players but their net spend is still sitting around £39.4m, which is unreal for a Championship side. 

They currently sit 19th in the Championship, 15 points adrift of leaders Huddersfield and not looking like closing that gap anytime soon.

They will maybe make the play-offs if they're lucky.

It's not even like they've signed bad players, they just can't seem to click (ring any bells?!) what a state they're in, Champions League winning manager at the helm, £13m strikers running about, can't score against Preston.

They need the engine ripped out and started again from scratch! Proof that you can't just chuck money at a club to fix them, it takes real hard work

Dont they get £160m parachute payment?

Yeah plus they've been doing well with their attendances so they will have a lot of money. I just think with the amount they've spent they should be looking at top 6 at the very very least.

A guy at work is from Birmingham and he supports villa and said he was glad they went down as he thought that's what they needed, he said through the week that he wanted Harry redknap as manager ( was he ever linked with them??) as he thought he would take them straight back up

Has Harry not retired from football management? He looks quite happy twitching his way through BTSport live games, in the studio. I think he's on their Saturday afternoon programme?

Villa have been a shambles for years. Di Matteo was never a good fit forthe club and they should have got Nigel Pearson (who may become available if the Derby owner decides to get rid).

What they need is a period of stability, and a total overhaul of the club. They won't get it due to the mad panic to get back into the EPL. I can see them sliding into the 3rd tier.

true but that wont stop the media trying to unsettle him/us 

It's interesting you say that. They have tried that this season, even though it's been an incredibly poor start.

You contrast that with Rodgers who has had a good domestic start to the season and just beat Man City in the CL final and he hasn't been linked with one yet...

Call me paranoid:pipe:

It's that time of the season, Swansea manager sacked.

 

Two jobs in England and Wales going then. Bob Bradley will take over at Swansea though as apparently they've already had discussions.
