Leicester 1 – 0 Villa; Total rubbish

Well, that was about as poor as it gets for me.
Yet again, we kept possession, passed it around a lot and basically created next to nothing.
A measly one shot on goal sums us up and says all we need to know.

The really disappointing thing is we weren’t playing one of the top teams. This was Leicester City, who while they’re on a decent run at the moment are still bottom of the table.
Still, Leicester should be feeling pretty good after this game, as they’re only 5 points behind us and the way we’re playing lately, we look eminently catchable.
Looking at that same table, we’re only 3 points above the relegation places.
Are those of you who think we’re going to end up mid-table still feeling comfortable? I’m not.

And then look at the current form table. We’re bottom with 3 draws and 3 defeats and when you consider who we’ve played in the last 4 games, that makes me even more uncomfortable.

It occurred to me during the game that Paul Faulkner said that Randy Lerner watches every Villa game and I found myself wondering if that was really true. If it is, what on earth must he be thinking?
If I, as a rabid Villa fan for far too many years find us incredibly hard to watch, surely he must be bored witless?

You’ll probably notice that I’ve hardly mentioned the game.
That’s because there’s very little to talk about, yet another red card apart and the scary fact that Leicester fully deserved their win.

When will this tedium end? is the question I keep asking myself.

Please Lerner, just do something. Anything: as it surely can’t be worse than the utter rubbish that we’re having to endure at the moment.
I’m beginning to think it might be better for us to actually go down attacking, as opposed to this death of a thousand misplaced passes, which I suspect will see us struggling anyway. And I don’t recall ever thinking that before.

I won’t even mention that even a lowly club like Leicester can afford a £9 million striker and the wages that entails. Yet we apparently can’t?.
Open your wallet Lerner and get us some quality before it’s too late.
Fat chance, I suppose.

    No two ways about it a cricket score is coming lay odds on that, as for colours never hide that even at away games, been in a few scrap situations in the past but to old now, you can now see what Lerner up to, he’s grabbing back what he can at the expense of fans, a yank through and through, no thought for the club, I still think Ellis knew this when he sold us off, I know Doug and his ways, he still has interest at the club like rooms ,offices and full row of seats in the box area, I still think feet will tell the club enough is enough, that’s my contributions to my loved club.

      190 million in debt last time i heard, this was 3 seasons ago lamberts first year. meantime sky tv money increased our playing staff wages decreased massively. money spent on transfers decreased massively. last summer after a narrow escape the year before, we were the 2nd lowest spenders. lerners gonna sell the club and best players to make up the lower price of sale. nothing us fans can do is there or we would do it. protest against the manager or players, is playing into lerners hands, deflects the attention off him

    Sadly we are witnessing the death of our great club.
    the owner doesn”t give a shit
    the players don”t give a shit with a number already looking for the exit door.
    and the manager is shit.
    lambert said you either sink or swim. He drowned a long time ago and lerner should grow a pair and tell him.
    An article yesterday said this villa team is the most boring in prem history with an average goals in a game of 1.6 beating Leeds with 1.7 in 1996.
    Another unwanted record.

    I hear eleven arrested yesterday at Leicester showing anger now, next home game should through up major problems , bet he brings one player in on loan? that will be to quiet the fans.

    The rumour is we are trying to bring in a promising young winger from united on loan to give him game time. We already have a promising young winger who if this deal happens won’t get a look in.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
