Well this is impressive, Villa are sinking like a ship and the fans are worried and stressed. What do the players do? Go to a nightclub (Gatecrasher) in Birmingham and get thrown out!
The full video is on the Birmingham Mail site: www.birminghammail.net
Makes Villa look wonderful that does eh?
Not the first time either, I`ve heard some awful reports. One of the members on here had to put up with, along with many other neighbours, late night parties and all sorts of noise keeping them away thanks to two of our younger players. I also know a bouncer at one of the Clubs (not into football so no allegences) who branded some of our players conduct 'totally disgusting`.
Whether they like it or not, and on their money they bloody well should like it, they are representing Aston Villa.
Frankly at the moment, with an awful manager, an awful season and players like this. I`m ashamed. Shame they aren`t.
Do they really not realise just how lucky and privileged they are?
The one good thing to come out of it is they are being fined and the money goes to Cure Leukaemia and the Anthony Nolan Trust.
An Aston Villa statement said: 'The Club dealt with this matter internally on Tuesday and the players in question have been disciplined, with the fines being split between two charities the club are promoting at the game against Spurs on Sunday - Cure Leukaemia and Anthony Nolan. Our players attended the club`s end-of-season dinner on Monday night and training on Tuesday was limited to players who did not start in Saturday`s Premier League game against West Bromwich Albion and those not carrying injuries. As a club, players, management and fans are completely focused on Sunday`s game against Spurs at Villa Park.'
To be fair them being out on a Monday night isn`t that bad BUT we are in a relegation battle, could they not be better served being at home resting up and being in a fit state for training the next day?
Time to shift some of these players out of Villa, the drinking culture there is a joke.
The players have apologised:
James Collins: Click Here
Chris Herd: Click Here
Fabian Delph: Click Here
It is only fair to say that we don`t know what kicked this off or provoked their actions, however, it does appear it was them not others thrown out.
Collins admits he is a senior player, he should know better, also, 28 and being thrown out of a nightclub? Oldest swinger in town? Isn`t Gatecrasher a club for the youngsters?! How very embarrassing. You`ve got to laugh, yet more embarrassment for the Villa fans. Lets hope they make amends on the pitch on Sunday eh?!
Can`t wait for this season to be over, hope to God we get rid of this embarrassing manager and that we get a new one in who can a) kick out some of the bad apples b) control those remaining!
