If he did his talking on the pitch, I doubt anyone would care about his off field lifestyle (same with Ireland)... While I think Ireland went some way to changing a lot of people's minds last season, it's certain that Collins isn't going to pull his weight. Ship him out.

I find it amazing how Warnock, Dunne and Collins have all changed since MON's time at the club. We had a very good defensive record and since he's left, they have gone downhill and have not stopped. They are all capable of playing together (except Hutton), but they just haven't shown it.

In my opinion I think it shows a complete lack of attendance or football knowledge on the previous polls. we would rather have a half hearted big time charlie at the club in Ireland than a give his all every week and put himself on the line player in Collins. For the last 6-10 matches he carried the back line near enough single handedly and in my honest opinion is one of the main reasons we stayed up!

PUts himself on the line for Villa? Have you watched him the last two seasons? Bloody disgrace half the time along with Dunne, Newcastle away thrashing, Baggies away under GH etc. He improved a bit at the end of the season, he finally woke up, nice of him but on his wages, whether he liked the boss or not, he should have been there all the time. Off pitch more important for some I think. Shame, he was one of my favourite players when he first came. If Lambert decided to keep him and made him grow up, fine, clean slate, but think he'll be out.

They weren't much cop towards the end of Mon's seasons either to be fair. You might want to give him credit for the final few games AVNath, I'd look at the previous 20 where he was key in getting us into the relegation battle.

I'm with you there AVNath. Fear, you say along with Dunne mate. It's along with everyone except the youth and Shay IMHO. No-one gave a toss last year and as Collins has decided to stick up for himself and the rest of the players( although maybe not in the best way((is there a best way??))), he's being singled out!!! Would we rather have him coming out in the press saying that everyone is behind Eck and we're doing really well like a lot of players did last year??? It was basically lies and we all knew it. I'd rather they called it how it is or not say anything. Randy and Co. were trying to opress us into thinking everyone was happy?!?!?!?!

Stick up for themselves my arse. They let us down on the pitch massively, especially in GH reign because they didn't like the boss. Well boo bloody hoo, in that case, feck orf. Were you not at the Baggies away? They were clearly not up to the game. The Newcastle away? Hmmm, I wonder why? 27 (or 28?) year old being thrown out of a nightclub last season. Grow the feck up. They are paid to do a job, that includes keeping fit. Did Dunne look fit at any stage to you? Even last game v Spuds when he lumbered in like a whale giving away a pen. I don't think so.

players h ave got away scott free not giving a toss and sulking around or not being professional for too long. Fans had the focus on managers and it seems the players were allowed to do what they wanted. Utter turgrid crap some of them, and to think of the wages they are on and the absolute privilege to play in that shirt, in front of mighty fine fans. Sorry, not having it. It is an insult to every single one of us who pay our money and make the effort.
