i don't know ByEck, maybe he thought about having more fresh legs? but im beleiver in when you lose games, then win stick to a winning team, he could have subbed 3 players off in the second half to freshen us upa bit, i left the ground when they went 2-0 up, i feel sad angry and sick of this now.

14 + corners and only 1 shot on target?????? None for Bent???? Why bring him back into the starting lineup when you don't know how to play him Eck??? Swansea's 1st away win this season. Villa's 4th straight loss at home. Worst in 12 years. Shows how lucky Eck was that Ireland, Gabby and the defence were on such good form against Chelsea. None of the plaudits should go to him. Waiting for the post match Eckscuses. Tired, small bunch of honest lads O'Learyesque etc. blaming defenders.

To be fair to the guy, he couldn't predict that shocker of a pass that Warnock made. Chasing the game from that early allowed Swansea to counter us time and time again, completely messed up the game plan. Deflating after New Years Eve

Mcleish takes one step forward and two back! Finally finds a winning formula praises albrighton on a class performance against Chelsea then drops him! Makes no sense at all. Hutton back on as a sub, how long before him and heskey start every match again!

Franco???, you've got to legislate for these things and be able to chase a game by changing the tactics, Eck is incapable. Back to normal after New Year's Eve, not deflating.
