Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear.
Villa fans being forced (and rightly) singing to the manager:
'You don`t know what you`re doing` and 'we want our club back`.
McLeish`s answer to the awful first half and start of the second was to bring off Marc Albrighton and to replace him with ... Ireland? No... Zoggy? Noooo. Emile Heskey.
Commentator (ended up selling my ticket, not well enough to go, bet the guy who went in my place is cursing me!) during the game was in awe of how bad it all was!
'it has been pretty dull to say the least so far. you can see why both of these teams are in the bottom half of the table'
Commentators taking Mickey out of the game. One sounds like Mick McCarthy. Whoever it is, is laughing said the crowd must wish they had gone shopping instead. Half glad I couldn't make it today, still missing the away laugh though, just the football gets in the way of a bloody good day out!
Not sure if anyone who went will submit a match report. I doubt it because there were few highlights! There were a few chances for both teams but at the end of the day, this was two very poor teams playing very poor football.
McLeish should not be in this job if that is the best he can get that lot playing. Just sad to see how poor we have become. I think we`ll remain up by the grace of worse teams below us, but it is certainly not a given yet ... oh, talking about Given, he made a crucial save or two for us today.
Bent looks like he might be out for a good while.. rest of season?... as he picked up what looked a nasty ankle injury.
I hope the text I got was wrong saying some Villa fans were fighting amongst themselves, that would be sad to see.
I would SO love to defend Alex McLeish amongst all the anger and doom. But how can you? Just can`t!
We`ll get the stats up and hopefully some manager/player reaction later or tomorrow morning (as I`m really not keen on hanging around after seeing 'that`)
Safe journey home to all those fantastic Villa fans who made the trip today. At least they were in fine voice and good form.
Current standings for the season:
11 draws, just 6 wins and 9 losses. We lie 15th with 29 points and a goal difference of -5
