4. Supporters are not alone

Villa  supporters are not alone in their dissatisfaction with the direction of the club, as they have been backed by a growing number of ex-Villa greats who have made their thoughts known that the current direction on the pitch just isn’t good enough.

Ex-Villa chairman Doug Ellis, ex-boss Graham Taylor, Andy Gray, Mark Bosnich, Ian Taylor, Paul McGrath and even Emile Heskey, have voiced their serious concerns about the present situation being not good enough.

Gray reflected some supporter’s initial apathy that Villa ultimately are too good or big to go down, but Villa’s shocking goal drought has blown away his complacency.

“I never thought for minute until the last two or three weeks that Villa would go down but I now have serious doubts about it. If you can’t get a goal, you are seriously struggling,” said the former Villa striker.

In terms of what the club has been offering its supporters on pitch, former Villa keeper Mark Bosnich certainly hit the nail on the head.

“There’s only so far they can push the fans”, said Bosnich. “Before the fans start turning around and saying, you know what, I’m not going to pay my season ticket year in and year out to watch this cr*p.”

 

 

Even the voice of God joined in this week on Twitter, reflecting the anger many Villans are feeling right now.

Paul McGrath tweeted:

“Hate to see the club I love in the state it’s in at the moment , needed investment four years ago , Villa now in panic mode . Disgrace. UTV.”

 

5. Mourinho’s Bogey

Until the weekend at least, Villa still have one proud record that Lambert hasn’t destroyed (yet) and that’s the fact Jose Mourinho has never won a game against Villa at Villa Park.

Records of this ilk are what Aston Villa should be celebrating more often and not the kind that Lambert increasingly tortures us all with. UTV

  1. I wrote in November 2014, its the worst team and tactics since Graham Turner, and we know what happened that season.

    Bring Big Ron back, and at least go down fighting and cheer the crowd up ( i will never forget the opening game at Hillsborough what a turn out, what a match) , not standing in front of the 18 yard line, and not even even marking people.

    People want a day out at Villa Park, after been at work all week, not go, and come back depressed……

    UTV from Sydney. Yep i will get up at 2am again and watch what unfolds …………………….

  2. jinksy, please give the source of your financial figures. Unless they appear in a set of accounts no one can quote them, and the club would simply deny them

  3. Other interesting info I read this week is that from inheriting a reasonably value squad Lambert has a net spend of near 40m since take over 3 year ago. Just 4m income, which we have paid more in wages to our loaned players. Everton have a net spend of 58m since the premier league stated 1992!! What does that tell you? By next season he will have spent more in 4 years than Everton have in 26! God Learner is a wonderful finance man god help his Bank im sure his Dad is terrified. Oh and wheres Falkner now? How are Forest doing?

  4. We need to beat the relegation battlers. We have 3 coming up 3 wins and we’d be mid table. However 2 wins in 19 tells me well be lucky to get one. I believe this season we are doomed. Our only slim chance is a new manager that may be able to get a few wins against the others and guide us to safety. Lambert will surely take us down and lose against Leicester. God help us. With the current regime our only hope is that we can survive administration when we are relegated and we have to again pay other clubs to take our crap away.

  5. Chelsea is not the key game, I have already written it off. Unless it is a real hammering, which would damage confidence, that is not the game changer.

    The big one is the cup game against Leicester. Lost that and there will be a backlash

  6. Other than being 3-0 up with 2 minutes to go and offering Mourino a hand shake……..Lambert will hear the wrath of Villa Park louder than he has heard it before!
    We know they won’t sack him, but we can let him know he should man-up and walk!
    Still supporting our club and the players for 90 minutes though.
