C'mon lads. One more push.

You guys are going down on this showing. Bradford lost to Oxford and Barnet recently ffs. Embarrassment to the premiership
We're are the Lambert lovers then, what a shambles tactically clueless Bradford are a far better football team than us, and it is down to the manager, how many forwards are we playing? It's the biggest embarrassment we have ever had
Disgrace Lerner needs to invest. PL has not got a clue tactically clueless. Lerner if you are not going to invest sell.
Where's the width?
Lambert should just resign, save what's left of his reputation. It might be kinder just to relegate the club now and put us out of our misery. Randy Lerner can go and get f***ed for turning us into a joke.
Agbonlahor -230 League appearances for AVFC and 55 goals. DB9 - 48 Villa appearances and 20 goals. Agbonlahor starts and DB9 is on the bench. Yeah, that makes sense.
Rubbish, utter embarrasment, worst Villa side I can ever remember. Lambert out Lerner out, Tea lady out....bah !
Newcastle have signed 3 - 4 new players. what do we do nothing!
Is there any work being done on corners? We cannot defend them for our lives, could not score from one on an empty training pitch. We need them drilled and now. If the players are not throwing up from the work on them then its not enough.

Surely Lambert has to go now, 8-0 against Chelsea was humiliating losing to Bradford is as bad as it can get
ShaneBlack -- Lerner is possibly leaving the transfers for the new gaffer.
I don't understand the Learner out calls he has put millions into our club and has been let down by players and a totally crap manager choice , if only Houlier had not got I'll we would have had a proper football team by now.
Lose at Milwall and it will surely -- and should be -- goodbye Lambert. Could be sooner than that!
That's it we're out and embarrassed yet again as fans. Good luck to Bradford as they had the belief and we didn't. Not good enough and I find myself now losing faith in Lambert and I have been trying to convince myself that he will turn this around.

He has to go now, we couldn't be any worse if my wife was in charge
VWRA I dont think we can wait that long unless there is a manager waiting in the wings and he has a list of targets at the ready...
We are officially a joke. No width, no ideas, no clue, no chance. Even a League 2 team can see that Bennett is muck. Gutted (again)
Never wanna see Joe Bennett anywhere near the club again. Seriously.
Fair dues to Bradford, btw, and good luck to them, but we were shocking in the second half. There hasn't been a single 90 minute performance out of this lot all season.
All jokes aside....I've totally lost faith in Lambert...he comes across as if he has no idea what to do...okay they're not the best players in the world, but some grasp of tactics would be a help...I can't even watch Villa these days, they can't even pass the ball to their own player...My Granny could pass better than Bennett (and she's dead), he's utter crap along with Bannan, Delph, Clarke....pfffff.....I'm off to cry in my beer...
I don't even know who to be blaming anymore. Lerner? Lambert? The players? All of them?! To be honest right now I couldn't give a rats arse. We have been a joke from top to bottom since Martin O Neill dumped us right into it....

Anone got a hotel rom for your mates at Vital Bradford????? WEMBLEY!!!!!!!! Sack Lambert Arrogant *****
If you've watched enough football, you just knew that corner was going to be a goal. Can't fault lambert tonight. It was the gung-ho performance at their place.
And twice in 4 days that we got done at half time. They changed it. We didn't.
They wont sack lambert, we'll get relegated because we are the worst team n the league. Thank god we didn't get to the final, think how bad a beating we would have gotten. Im sick of being embarrassed, I can't been defend the club anymore. Its dying in front of us all and we can do nothing while the fools in charge sit back and watch.
The board, manager and players owe the fans an apology after that. On top of that, they also need to question themselves as to whether they are premier league quality. Losing to a league 2 side over 2 legs is inexcusable. Read a piece on the baggies before the weekend. They have had a solid structure and philosophy in place for the last few years, with little changes in playing personnel, despite the change in manager. What is our strategy exactly?!
Half time came and we were going to Wembley then their manager decided to go with plan B. We dont have one of them you know, pity really.
444 you must be on a wind up? PL selected Jo Bennett he was shocking - not even League 2 standard, then PL panicked made a series of substitutions which meant we had 4 strikers and no width and absolutely no strategy - PL is clearly clueless when under pressure and my god is he under pressure - he has to go - now.
I have been saying that Lambert is not good at tactics since he was appointed, it's been long enough we may have a chance to stay up if we get a manager who knows how a football team should be set up
Also 38% of us knew this was going to happen - that's shocking, Mr Lerner must know hat the rest of the season has in store for us - it isn't nice, why should I spend my hard earned going to VP? My brother did a 208 mile round trip to watch that, he will be lucky to get home by 2.00am with all the snow - IT'S NOT ON - YOU CAN'T TREAT US LIKE THIS!
Getting a corner against us is like getting a penalty. I'm afraid the writing is on the wall. We are awful and have been for over two seasons. Fizzy pop league Here we come. VTID
