Goal attempts 3 ????? Ah, welcome back Mr Heskey !
MASON_PARKER
Starting Heskey instead of Weimann says it all for me, what a joke way to build up a young kids hopes and confidence after scoring us the winner last week Eck, is there anything this bloke is good at as managing a football team is clearly above his limit.

Idiot couldn't pick his nose.... FACT! Sooner he goes the better
Pride of Lions
that went well, can certainly see the positives, thought we lost our shape when Heskey went off, not fair bringing our hero off but at least he is sticking with Gabby on the wing, that is 100% where he is best obviously. Would have rathered seen Ireland in goal and Petrov in defence obviously but no real complaints, in McLeish we trust (yup, the season has finally caught up with me!)
The Fear
Can we start up a poll to help McLeish decide what his next career choice should be? He's going to realise he's not a football manager sooner or later so I think we need to give him some suggestions. Maybe he can be a taxi driver so he doesn't even need one of us to book him one when Randy finally wakes up?

Could not even be bothered to find a stream on the web for this, knew it was going to be bad. Glad i missed it.
Lost_In_Ca
Can I get my 35 back please? Utterly woeful that was. God we are *****. Weimann should've started. But even that wouldn't have helped...we were lucky was only 3. Quietest away support I've evr heard from Villa boys...not that there's much to sing about. Bleak.
olofthegreat
Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, Mr Fear. But there again McLeish is the lowest form of management, so more than appropriate in this instance ..... unfortunately.
stennyvilla
FFS. Luckily I didn't pay but was sat on the half way line behind the ( so called) management. Eck and Grant are a fu***ng joke. They kept getting up and shouting weird comments to the players who were put off playing by the incompetent duo. Gooner fans were likening them to Laurel and Hardy!!! They did some sign language that no-one understood and then went back to their seats shaking their heads as if they were far superior and the players were all idiots!! Great to play under these fools I bet. The arsenal fans were ripping them to shreds. They are an embarrassment. Randy and fulker don't know enough to know. We are a laughing stock. To all the losers that have no life but to go to Villa Park every week, I implore you, get another hobby/pastime until these idiots are gone. We cannot support this hierarchy. You will be doing the club, the players and yourselves a massive favour by boycotting. No Eckscuses, you're either a fan who loves the club or you've got no life other than mundanely turning up to watch absolute toilet. There is nothing to support before anyone says get behind the team. We really are that bad.
Villan444
Well said Villan 444. Can we please amp up the protests, not buying season tickets, letters to Randy, chants at Eck and anything else we have to do to make it impossible for Eck to continue now please??!! This season has been a complete joke and the future under this management will NOT get any better. Our style of football is an utter disgrace, they may have put up with it at small heath but we are the Villa and this is NOT the way we play and not the mentality we play with. McLEISH OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Poyet in the summer please???? Anyone else in the summer please!!!!!! Randy wake up or go home and never come back.
AdzVilla11
Waits for the inevitable posts of support for McLeish .. just wondering how ..
ExpatVillaShirt
Villan444 Calling fellow villa fans losers for supporting their team is despicable. And that is from someone who refused to renew my ST once McLeish was appointed and have no intention of setting foot inside VP until he has gone. But, being disresptful in that way to fellow supporters is just not on.
jonah
Jonah, you have obviously got the point and didn't renew as I didn't either. What gets me is there will normally be someone that will argue that we should get behind the team and turn up and sing regardless. There has to be a change as most have realised and carrying on regardless is detrimental. It is a losers mentality to do so.
Villan444
Wow... 3 shots. We're so great under mcloser.
thorpyuk
We get 3 points against Fulham so how do we deal with an in form Arsenal keep the same side ? naaa Mcleish book of tactical nonsense bring Heskey back just what we need for a fast moving pacy team like Arsenal .
