Ok, the ugly truth from this season:

* The lowest number of club goals ever in top-flight football (37) i.e. since 1888 - the last worst was 2005-06 (42).

* The lowest number of club wins in top-level League football (7) since 1986-87 (8, relegation year).

* The lowest number of club wins in the Premier League (7) - the last worst was 2005-06 (10).

* The lowest club points tally since the relegation season of 1986-87 (25 years), when they finished with 36 points.

* The lowest club number of points in the Premier League (38) - the last worst was 2005-06 (42).

* Equal highest club number of home defeats in the Premier League (8) - the last was in 1993-94.

* The least number of club home wins ever in top-flight football apart from 1890-91 when 5 were won at home, but only 11 home games were played then (vs 19 now). Only 2 games were lost at home in 1890-91 (vs 8 in 2011-12).

* It (four) is the least number of club home wins ever in top-flight football at Villa Park (i.e. since 1897).

* Villa have lost 22 points from winning positions this season - more than any other club in the division.

Alex McLeish says: "I haven`t become a bad manager over-night".

Nope, you`ve perfected that over many seasons Eck, now please go and leave our beloved Club alone.

With thanks to John Lerwill, I asked him a few weeks ago if he would do this as I get nervous with stats, I don`t like getting things wrong! He`s obliged: http://www.lerwill-life.org.uk/astonvilla/

Very powerful. Facts don't lie. If Lerner and Faulkner keep him, there has to be A Massive squad overhaul, because you don't get a set of stats like that without having serious issues!

After reading that I can't believe McLeish isn't shamed into resigning. Even with all the mitigating factors (injuries etc) no self respecting manager could oversee a season that bad and even think about defending the job they've done. We have become an embarrassment to the fans, to Birmingham, to the Premier League and to football as a sport.

Ouch. Just a couple of seasons ago you almost removed us from the Champions League places. What the hell has been going on at your place?

Is seven 0-0 draws in one season any kind of record?
