    Absolute disgrace on the feld again last night. The most boring match I’ve seen us play in a while, completely outplayed in every department, dominated. Decided to try and play after we were 2-0 down haha and that still didn’t work.

    I’ll say again, we are playing worse football than this time last year. We’re fecking going backwards.

    Reading through this I can totally see both sides of the argument, and both are correct, in a way.
    Its true, we aren’t very good, and it doesn’t look like we are going to be world beaters anytime soon, Lerner is in it for the money, after-all, he’s a businessman, Lambert doesn’t have a big budget, not his fault, so he tries to do the best he can with it. Imagine if he spent it all on one or two quality players, we would be picking from the youth side now with all these injuries.
    Yes, we lost to a “second string” still worth over £70m (hardly a ‘B’ team then), with a near squad of benchwarmers, but we are only 5 games in, 6 points from a crazy set of starting fixtures….not bad IMO….. Therefore definitely too early to be calling for heads.

    Last night was dead, I thought being in K5 at least I would be able to sing my heart out and enjoy the game a bit, but I was wrong. I think its a disgrace to not go and support (even when its looking a bit gloomy) that extra buzz around the park can really lift players, especially at 0-0 / 0/1, and at that time, we weren’t too bad.

    Most people were more interested in their mobiles, taking pics and kissing their misses.
    OK, so after the game, have a whinge and a moan, if deserved, but while your in that seat, play your part and support the team!!!

    Hi everyone tough game for Villa last night with injuries but i get the feeling that was going to be Lamberts plan for last nights game all along.I think he is going to have a go to see how high up we can finish in the league an evaluation of if you will.So we are out the cup.If we are mid table by xmas i will be happy as we will have progressed from last season.If we are bottom six at xmas then ask questions.Home form piss poor sort it out Lambert.Away slightly better.Early days yet but i fear against Man Citeh we will get spanked badly.UTV

    Haven’t read the comments.. i know what side of the fence some will be sitting on..

    BUT let’s be honest we have issues ESP in midfield.. it is worrying.. 4-0 at home isn’t acceptable.. three home defeats on the bounce now..

    No one knows IF Bacuna is a RB RM or CM.. we need to give the lad a run in one position otherwise how will we know how good he is.. rather then keep moving him around..

    Our best two players are out injured.. Tonev isn’t ready.. Helenius looks shit ( sorry but he does )

    Realistically we spent 17M in the summer and brought in one first teamer in Okore..

    Even thou Benteke is injured i still rather have had a play maker and Barry on loan then Kojak.. simply because Gabby and Weimann can do play up top and we need a solid midfield which we don’t have..

    I am still patient and will stick with PL but that is in the hope that next summer we have 40M to spend on four players.. ST AM DM and a defender If that is not the case then i am in the Ooh aah camp lol

    Completely agree Lionheart £17m on one first team player, problem is it may be too late by next season as we might be in Championship !!

    Lambert OUT September 25, 2013 at 3:08 pm .

    If Alex McLeish had had that result last night then we would want his head on stick. Lambert is getting away with it lightly. He is totally incompetant, tactically clueless and doesn’t inspire. The bloke is totally out of his depth. Trying to make a silk perse out of a sous ear. Fact, the bloke has spent nearly £40m in the last two summers with no improvement. We have a squad full of ‘tryers’ but no skill. Excluding Benteke his signings have been poor.
    Lambert out!

      Agree again but do think Okore would have been a good sigh if he wasn’t injured 🙁

    Lambert OUT September 25, 2013 at 3:44 pm .

    Any players that can pass to another team mate and control a football. So that’s most players apart from the crap that Lambert has lumbered us with.
    Why are people always sticking up for this incompetent fool? He still can’t put a team together that can at least compete in a home game. Its dire.

          Agree with Barry, missed a trick there, the Bent situation was a little different though, he didn’t want to be a bench warmer unfortunately, i’d have kept him if he’d been happy to play second fiddle.

      Agree lambert out but unfortunately lambert is here to stay for a few more months at least. Also if he went then who comes in that’s any better? I can’t think if anyone right now it’s not like we would get mourunho it would be someone like pd canio etc

    I think we should have kept Bent, with Gabby and Albrighton up front, Ireland tucked in behind, Delph and someone else in midfield and Warnock and Dunne in defence, with a couple of other defenders bought in and Given in goal. The alternative I suppose was to completely rebuild the team using new and academy players and with just Gabby and to a certain extent Albrighton remaining. Delph would count had he ever played before. The idea, presumably, being to build a team into which new players could be injected where necessary (see: Okore and Luna). £40million or whatever it is has rebuilt the team and we’re in 13th.

    Had we won the Chelsea match we’d have been in seventh, would it be “Lambert out” and talk of Championship or league football then? I’m the first to admit though that my crystal ball is nowhere near as good as those of many on here.

        What do you think? Damn, I forgot Bannan. The whole team needed rebuilding, then you need to work out who to keep and who needs replacing. While remaining in the PL. Which is where we are.

        For what it’s worth, I think Vlaar is doing ok too.
