On paper that looks a very attacking team. Feel a bit sorry for Bent I thought he might keep his place in the team. UTV
We're better away from home and you wouldn't expect them to sit back at the tastefully named coral windows stadium so fair play, no point playing for a draw and taking them back to our place. 0-3 to us, and hope that Bencht gets 15 mins as the shop window is well and truly open.
I think V444 is starting to come around he's suggesting game time I see a love affair soon...
Half time and villa you should not get payed. Bennett is shocking. Bradford look better than us. Why can't PL see how poor some of these players R.
Lol. I do now seriously think that he should come on at halftime. It's made for him and we're all over them. Need Nzigbia to pass to The benched one!!!
Pass to anyone would be good saying that....
Best finisher on the Bench bring on Bent.
Half time and it's looking whatit is......... a poor team!
Pride of Lions
Sandra Redknapp would've scored that header!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we are terrible. i have never seen us so poor. we have zero quality in midfield
words can't express how I feel. this has to be the worst villa team I have ever seen. do they know how to defend and the midfield cant pass.
2-0 down...I've turned the TV off...let's face it, they're utterly useless...pffff...
We scored MAson I think you were jinxing us by watching it ;)
Good job I left the record button on....phew !
Now its Tranmere all over again!!!!
And there I was thinking we were crap under McLeish...shows what I know.
3-1 arghhhh....
Im finally going to admit it we are rubbish...
We are...CDX.....I've had enough of this....this team is just not good's nothing to do with being's to do with being crap....none of them seem to be able to pass the ball to their own team mate....wish I could earn 40 grand a week for being that bad at my job. Bah !
Absolutely gutted
I like to hear what PL will say now, I guess he will say we was unlucky. typical dont gross over the problems villa have.
What this team needs is more young players who aren't good enough :- ) Act now Lerner/Lambert or ***** off. If he trotts out more crap about honest endeavour, and NOT needing experienced players, I will find him. It's obvious you stupid nause. Most embarrassing result in living memory....and I am quite old. Why is it impossible to have 1 leader in the team. Might that have an opinion that will clash with Lamberts?
heavy d
I use to think our problems were just in MF may be I was wrong...
Outplayed by Bradford so fair play to them but just re-read that sentence....OUTPLAYED BY BRADFORD. The deluded prat will probably talk about it being a good result as we got an away goal. P.S. BENNETT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. he just got monstered by a couple of league 2 players on a couple of hundred quid a week. Another great lower league find Lambert. I'm SURE we will sell him for more than we paid for him (sarcastic emoticon) If he doesn't say that was crap and that the players were a disgrace he does need to be sacked. Softly softly isn't working!!!!!!!
heavy d
Total disgrace, complete rubbish. Players aren't good enough but I blame PL completely. No organisation, no ability to defend set pieces, no shape. Bent and Ireland left on the bench, and when bent had to go off who does he bring on? Graham Burke ffs, leaving Ireland and samir carruthers on the bench. Complete *****, even worse manager than the idiot we had last year and possibly the worst I've ever seen (to put it in perspective that includes turner, McNeil, venglos etc)
I think we're clearly going down unless some pretty major changes occur
I am sick of being embarrassed by this club. Its beyond a joke. Bennett rubbish, Clark rubbish, Delph crap,Bannan useless. Somebody just put us down and be done with it. We re a lame horse. Bradfords night, we still should have scored 4. Ah well, at least my friends don't tease me anymore, out of pity.
Well done Bradford, Villa ? No comment
