Bent; The manager is taking the club the wrong way.

The posts are coming thick and fast on here lately, but I couldn’t resist looking at this particular comment from Darren Bent.

Why? Because I believe it’s somewhat indicative of what’s really going on down the Villa.

Things don’t smell right for me and when you couple this with Jack Grealish’s comment where he just wants to be happy playing football again, you have to wonder what the hell is going on.

Was Grealish just being young and daft when he put that twitter comment out?
I doubt it.
I think he just wants out, as he knows he doesn’t have a prayer of being a regular player under Lambert.

Whatever you think there, Darren Bent knew exactly what he was saying and the long and short is that he thinks Paul Lambert is a fool;

Of course, he’s perhaps being a little bitter, but players tend to bite the bullet and not bite the hand that feeds them, which means they keep their traps shut. So Bent speaking out like this is a little odd, in my opinion.
Bent is still being paid by the Villa, so it’ll be interesting to see if he gets fined.

I know many of you don’t rate Bent, but my attitude is that if you put the ball in the box, Bent will score, more often than not.
And he couldn’t possibly do worse than our current strikers. That’s undeniable.
Of course, we don’t get the ball in the box much as things stand, but who’s the redundant one here?
The player that wants it or the manager that can’t achieve it?
I’ll let you decide.

These niggling little comments coming from players are not a good sign and to me, they indicate a club that’s seriously struggling and lacking strong leadership.
I seriously want the lot of the hierarchy gone.

    I think something we all can agree on though – Richardson is 100% shit.

    Adam, no problem mate, just a windup. You are after all entitled to your opinon, its wrong of course, but you are entitled. Shame about giving a goal away but we must be one of the top teams left in the cup. How does that sound.

      Don’t agree that Bradford’s win over Chelsea yesterday was the biggest upset in FACup history. Surely, Villa beating Bournemouth (reverves) beats that?

    Well that was a welcome surprise. Fabulous goal by Gil, keeper got nowhere near it. Given some of the other results we should be reasonably happy. I guess it’s back to normal next week but at least we are in the draw.

    I thought the second goal was better – well worked and proves that Weimann can hit the target!
