Kevin Phillips has broken ranks and told Sky Sports News: 'We are completely supportive of our manager, all his staff and our chairman. I am sure the board, the manager and I know the team will pull together.'
What a load of crap Kevin. Do you really expect us to believe that everything is tickety-boo? Ok for you, I'd be supportive on £20k a week or more, but how can we have a statement one minute - and the statement came from some of the players, of that there is no doubt, no amount of denials will negate that fact - and this the next?
He also claimed: 'We all think there has been too much discussion about matters off the field at Villa. Unfortunately this seems to have broken into a feeding frenzy. The fact is the players just want to play football and our squad is no different.'
So we've had the chairman insult the fans intelligence, the manager insult the fans and now a player is insulting us. Do they really think we are that stupid?
Manager Tim Sherwood has spoken of his disappointment - and shouldered the blame - for today's one nil loss to Stoke City.
