Aston Villa 1 -2 Sheffield utd; Didn’t go, so can’t comment, but…

As above, I didn’t go, so please don’t bother asking why I’m commenting if I didn’t see the game.
No, these are more general comments based on what I heard on the 5live extra commentary.

This is the FA cup and this sort of result is what makes the tournament so magical for me.
A struggling league one side can overcome teams at a higher level with a fluke result, which is not only magical in itself, but more importantly these days, leads to another chance to put some bonus money in the pot.

Only, from what I heard, this was by no means a fluke result.
Comments included “really struggled”, “Sheffield by far the better side”, “outplayed” and the usual “can’t break them down”.

Never mind, Lambert made it plain he didn’t give a toss about the FA cup and called it a “distraction”.
Hence he’s no doubt happy.

Only, he obviously won’t be.
Despite his comments, he played a strong eleven, so I can only assume he was expecting us to have enough to win this one.
I wonder if the penny might have dropped now? Indeed, if Lerner gets to watch the game, I wonder if the penny will drop with him too?

I can live with a fluke loss at home to a league one side in the FA cup, don’t get me wrong.
It happens.
But it was telling that there was only one commentor who actually predicted a win for us in the preview article.
The truth is, that’s what we’re down too at the moment.
I mean, who would bet against a Boldmere second X1 beating us at home, the way things stand at the minute?

The worst thing for me is that I’m not actually surprised that we lost today.
As opposed to the poor mugs who attended.
It sounded to me that they had finally lost their patience today, but I’ll leave it for someone who went to comment on that.

I still refuse to call for Lambert’s head, as it won’t happen.
But something has to change.

      Why is there a sudden interest in hoddle. He’s not managed for years like houllier and has a continuous wankfest over spurs like houllier with Liverpool. He was never even successful as a manager either

        Agreed, we are scraping the barrel talking about a guy whose last job was a total disaster at Wolves a decade ago.
        We need a continental manager with fresh energy and good footballing principles like Pochettino.
