Video: Aston Villa fans on worst ever manager

Aston Villa are 15th in the Championship on 25 points.

When Steve Bruce succeeded Roberto Di Matteo at Villa Park in October, he became Aston Villa's eighth manager since 2010.

Since Martin O'Neill's resignation five days before the start of the 10/11 season, the club have experienced managerial turmoil at every corner. Aside from Paul Lambert, who lasted 32 months at Villa Park, no boss has spent more than a season at the club.

As a result, Aston Villa has been plunged into chaos and have not only failed to scale the heights that saw regular European football under O'Neill, but have sunk into the second tier of English football with a whimper.

The likes of Gerard Houllier, Remi Garde and Roberto Di Matteo had all been successful in European football, but were seemingly unable to prevent the alarming slide at Villa Park, while risky appointments such as Tim Sherwood failed to do much better.

However, it was a man who had won trophies closer to home who drew the most ire from the Villa faithful when he arrived from Birmingham City in June 2011.

"Alex McLeish," one fan said. "He shouldn't have been employed in the first place because of the rivalry. The fans went against it straight away."

Despite last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Elland Road, Steve Bruce has been overseeing a turnaround in fortunes at the club. The club may be in 15th position, but are just six points off a play-off position and host one of Bruce's former sides in Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
