Absolute proof that Martinez is a better manager than Eck, as if everyone didn't know already. Never chose to watch the Bloose or Rangers so had no idea how negative and average Eck is. How has he got away with it for so long. Only 92 professional managerial jobs in England. This man definitely doesn't deserve a single one of them. When will the nightmare end Mr. Lerner???

All of the midfield came through the ranks, no Dunne, no Petrov, Benty, Hesky and Keane all should of scored. Unlucky Eck.

Come on Piper, you can't be unlucky every bloody week. You're either a good manager or not. Sadly the latter applies. And so what if they all came through the ranks?? Could've, would've, should've scored. 1 chance each was it. We only had 3 on target so I assume that's those. In your argument we should've lost 6-3 because Wigan had twice as many on target. It can't be Eck's fault, surely not??????????????????

Unlucky not to scrape a 1-0 win to the lowest team and lowest scorers in the whole ******** league was it Piper.

What you lot fail to realise is we are not the team of 2-3 seasons ago, we are not even the team of last season. The players we have now are just not very good. You lot think we should be hammering teams like Wigan but we are not Man City! Move on- the days of us as a force have gone and will not return until learner bankrolls another £50 mill+ spend. This squad has had it, it's made up of kids and the left overs of MONs reign, apart from DB, CNZ and AH - and as seen during GHs reign the players think they are something else. McLeish is not Ferguson, I'll give you that, but he should be allowed to build his own team before judgement. Did you really think we would batter Wigan with two inexperienced PL players in central mid? Get real, look at the bigger picture. Eck has been unlucky. It's not his fault Heskey missed a sitter, Cueller again should of scored and Keane didn't finish a great chance. It's not his fault!!!

Some people are just crazy and deluded. Since when do Villa fans want their team to start hammering the likes of Wigan? We want good performances, not just having 10 people behind a ball with the occasional chance. Wigan were by far the better team today, and some people fail to realise that we have a better squad than everyone below us and about 6 teams above us. The lack of leadership, poor tactics and poor team selection are costing us...N'Zogbia, Bent, Keane, Agbonlahor, Ireland, Albrighton, Bannan all very good to decent attacking players, yet we set up like a wall infront of our box. It's absolutely disgusting, embarrassing and a misery to watch...this man is single handedly ruining our club, there are plenty managers who could come in to this fold get us playing decent football and picking up results. My blood boils even talking about this disgusting man, wasting everyone's money and time. 3 shots on target Piper, that is all...wake up and see sense like the majority have, hardly worth arguing about this issue, the facts are there, he is garbage who needs to be threw out. Mcleish out!!!!

Wigan played 3-5-2 today and completely baffled mcleish. He had no idea what to do to combat it. Hutton and albrighton got hammered all game by Moses and bleeding beausejour. It was embarrassing
