Chelsea 7-1 ASTON VILLA

Worst defeat since 1964 (so I'm told, not checked myself). Villa got taught a lesson today, one that, with the money spent and time building the squad, we SHOULD NOT have had to be taught.

This was as bad a display as the score suggests and I see little profit in picking over the bones to be honest.

Villa have for the second season in a row, whimpered out of the running for 4th place, whether through tactics, fatigue or just the harsh fact that maybe we aren't as good as we'd like to think we are, I'm not sure right now would be a sane time to reflect.

Credit to Chelsea, they'd not have dreamt of this result in a month of Sunday's but took full advantage.

Star Man: Are you having a giraffe?

Worst Performer: I've suggested that the entire team and coaching staff donate this weeks wages to Acorns Charity: Click Here

Best Moment: The final whistle.

Tactics: Sorry, not today... we lost 7-1, don't care who or what is to blame, this is not acceptable

Chant of the game: Villa fans sang from start to end, they did us proud, the team didn't.

Oppo Fans: Martin, give us a wave, Martin Martin, give us a wave. :o(

Will follow up later with the managers reaction and hopefully Glensiders away match report in the morning.

Hopefully the team see this as a wake-up call. Shows how our form can disapear towards the end of the season and something desperatly needs to be done. Hopefully the players and coaching staff can do something about it in the future. So fustraiting because we are a far better team than that performance and we are repreating last seasons mistakes. Unforgivable. We MUST not lose for the rest of the season.

This is last seasons 5-1 at Liverpool, did we learn from last seasons mistake of not rotating and running out of steam, erm, that would be a big no, will we learn, again no, not unless we change the man in charge

Fonz had a nice run past three players. Sidwell played pretty well in the first half. Ref missed Milly getting smacked in the face. Chelsea fans were very friendly before the match (maybe they knew something I didn't). Bolton on Saturday, three points please.

I heard some chants of "what a load of rubbish" but I guess that was from the Chelski fans! But nonetheless, they had a point!

agree evo, fonze will be a star one day, if only after his run he'd be able to score, that would have been SOME goal!

Tired team. Play the same men week in week out, have four centre backs to choose from, two right backs, blah blah. Sorry Martin, whose tactics are these? Am not blaming the players. But I think O'Neill's lack of rotation and same old same old substitution 'policy' is getting beyond a joke. I'm not laughing today, anyway. I want MoN to be better than this. He's going to sacrifice Villa to his bloody minded stubbornness. Please learn lessons Martin. Or ...

Goal of the season. (Another slice of humble pie for me too, he was very bright today)
