The worst performance I've EVER seen from a Villa team. I think I've written exactly the same thing for the past 5 home games. Just truly gutless. We are officially the most boring team in the Premiership.

Selected team to play for a draw again. Nothing bur defense in the first half. Then when the shackles were off, we had a go, and could have scored a couple in the last 15 minutes. City were lacking confidence away from home, we should have attacked from the start. McLeish, you don't know what you are doing. GO NOW!

I disagree! Great performance by the Villians! Barry and Milner were fantastic! Oh wait. We sold them... Nevermind...

Still not as bad as the Tottenham game so Eck must be improving, still there was never as performance as that so very similar. If city would've scored in the first minute, we still wouldn't have changed things until the 89th. Embarrassing for all Villans. Eck has no shame and doesn't understand the traditions, ethics or even modern day football. McCarthy apologised to their fans. I want the same from Eck.

Haven't posted on here since the summer. The reason? Lerner appointing McLeish. Like many Villans the thought of an ex-Bluenose and a--frankly--journeyman manager taking over as the main man at the Villa was too much for this fan. However, time and contemplation has led me to a more philosophical point of view. If McLeish was/turns out to be a success at the Villa his 'Bluenose' background would probably end up to be something we joke and laugh about. Imagine that, 'Bluenose' Alex... the best manager Villa ever had??? Maybe not. The point is--hard as it is for some to accept--the 'Small Heath' thing has to be set aside. It's a little bit like those nutjobs in the States who can't accept Obama as President because he isn't white. Des Kelly wrote a good article about the mentality yesterday. The problem with McLeish is the style of football and the results. Villa are unlikely to get relegated. There are far worse sides in the EPL. However, we could be a lot more progressive as a club in terms of our football. Under RL we have been very progressive off the field. RL, however, could do with a few more 'football' people around him. I'm not conviced he has at the moment. There has been talk about a/some Billionaire type (s) sniffing around the club (and Everton and Newcastle). I personally don't want our club to be a toy for the rich. Randy Lerner is still the best man for the Villa. (I've also been very critical of him in the past, particularly over appointing McLeish). Bringing in Mcleish was the wrong decision (purely for on-field football reasons). Ditto, Houllier. However, he's here. Sacking him would probably be a mistake at the moment. Losing by one goal to the League leaders is no disgrace. Maybe, he should be given one more season? After all, who could replace him. Moyes? Not a chance.

Lol. "I thought the gameplan was excellent" Eck's words in post match interview and blaming the errors for our loss. WTF. He's either insane, deludedly in denial or just a ***** liar. ECK OUT.

******** hell Villa will rise again. No Villa team should ever go into a game and NOT even try to win unless it's a 2 legged cup game. Randy has got Villa as his plaything. Why the ***** do you think he's bought us. He doesn't make much money out of us, he's got the tattoo and designed the new crest himself and rarely turns up. The over priveleged heir to a fortune clueless about football fool that he is.

OK, Villan444, who would you like to own the Villa. Roman 'rent-a-boss' Abromavich? Who would be your choice to replace McLeish? Be realistic. Moyes will either be at Bluescouse or Spurs next season.
