After an eventful international break, Aston Villa returned to Football League Championship action with a new manager in the dugout. Steve Bruce, formerly of Manchester United as a player and a whole bunch of clubs as a manager, has embraced the challenge of turning around a team that has taken to Championship life like a duck to a wood chipper.
Bruce's first game at Villa Park was a 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers, and brought about one of the worst performances of the season. A penalty apiece told nothing of the story; Wolves can be furious that they didn't leave with all three points. Next up for Bruce and Villa: Reading away and Fulham at home.
