I am a patient person. I believe in giving managers time, but this is unacceptable. We need to change NOW before it is too late, Martin Jol please

The sad thing is that not many of us expected a much better result after recent shows.Now we cannot point to a long injury list.We can point to a squad without a first class striker - a problem for many years - and a squad not much changed from past seasons ( except Milner) which for reasons that escape the mere addict now cannot defend.The manager has not had the chance to strengthen but he should have been able to organize the defence to avoid the goals against score and the woeful defending.On that basisis alone I would not support him continuing in the job.Let someone else sort it out because he has lost our confidence.You know that we shall most probably writing similar things after the Chelsea game and the bottom three beckons.

The first job most new managers do is tighten up at the back. There is is history that MON's clubs decline after he leaves (exception is Celtic) mainly because his phylosophy of playing is changed. K Mac changed it and GH has continued to change. Nothing wrong with that but for heavens sake tighten the back up. I'm patient too but we no longer have the excuse of playing kids and nothing is changing. Answers please GH or....

Against Chelsea, i'd like to say the most important thing is the performance, but we need results. I don't care if we stick 10men behind the ball to scrape us a draw, but we need something, and quick. I think its easy to blame MON, easy to blame Houllier etc. My question is how are we defending so badly as a team when we were so good last year? Part of me thinks its because our midfield played a huge part in our defence last year, especially milner. But i think its time that the players stood up and be counted. When we are in times of troubles, its time for the exp. pros to come out and fight for the club that is paying their wages.. Ok, we don't know what is going on behind the scenes... but where are Carew, Ireland, Beye and Dunne? Where is the fight?the passion? Is it down to Houllier? Is it down to the players?

Sorry Mr Houlier, I'm sure you're a lovely bloke, but we need somebody who's a bit better than you. Do the honourable thing, and Randy, Martin Jol or Ian Holloway will do what we need, and that's restore a bit of pride. Do it before the transfer window opens and give them a bit to play with. Thanks.

If you continue to sell your best players and not replace them, this is what you get ! How long have Villa fan pages been saying we need a striker ? It seems obvious to everyone except those in charge. We've left it so long that we now need a completely new defence , midfield and strikeforce because this lot are useless. I dont mind Villa losing to Man City, we all knew that was going to happen, but to see such a self pitying, waste of space like this team is just not acceptable. As for the manager...no idea, no tactics, no belief....this club is going rotten !

I've gone from being in the 'give him time' camp to being firmly within the 'he's gotta go' camp in the space of four games. He's destroying us. Can't remember the last time I saw us consistently play with so little passion. What's Billy McNeill up to these days? He'd fit in quite nicely at VP right now.
