Nightclub Brawls.... How Very Embarrassing

Nightclub Brawls.... How Very Embarrassing

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!

Utterly utterly disgraceful. I am sickened and enraged. The disrespect leaves me shuddering. My shirt is bloodied and torn this morning.

Confidence and moral must be at an all time low for this kind of caper to go on. This is not what we need when we need to win at least one of the next two games (if not both!!). Pull yourself together chaps...

Heard they are at it all the time maigrait, they don't realise that fans (and non fans) see and talk! They don't care though I would think. Not against them goign for a drink, but ffs, fighting in clubs etc? Grow up!

Fancy James Collins being involved in a ruck at a nightclub! Could be the final nail in the coffin of his Villa career, at least I hope so. The behaviour and attitude of this man is deplorable and insulting. I don't have a massive issue with players being out on a night off, although under the circumstances, they maybe should have thought twice about the effect their actions might have. Such behaviour, though, is what we have come to expect from modern-day 'professional' footballers, so I guess their performance of the pitch is at least consistent. Shame they don't show the same commitment and fight ON the field eh?

And what is perhaps worse for me, once I would have been ashamed by this type of news. Now, it doesn't really mean anything. And that's the really sad thing for me.

new manager needed for sure - and new players needed. if we arent already a joke enough as it is - very low times indeed for villa. if i don't see any change in the summer with at least a new manager... then villas name will just be destroyed in my opinion. were allowed to get away with a poor season once - but if you carry on being poor then clubs just see you as a small time club trying to stay in the prem.. joke

Some sort of vicious circle here: Club has no money because it pays too much to players, as well as on players. Players have too much money and don't know how to treat it/ use it. Until football gets its house in order and players get paid what they are really worth, which is less than now, I guess these stories will continue to to occur. Difficult to image Sid & Co acting like this in their day. Yes they should be ashamed, but I doubt they really are. Maybe we are the mugs for helping them to afford these habits in return for ... what?

Boys will be boys. Can't believe that people are more worried by this than our performances on the pitch. Can't see a link between the 2. This sort of thing goes on everywhere that people who don't just sit at home on their computer frequent.
