Knew..just f*****g knew it..That us done now.. Qpr, Bolton & Wigan will easily overtake us now.. We have 1 hope left & that is if QPR go on a dismal run & don't beat Stoke lose away at Chelsea & Man City... This is by far & away the worst Villa side i have ever seen & the manager is..well I better not say. Sad thing is we deserve to go down we are s**t & i mean really.

We are shocking. McLeish has to go, not just for the possible relegation, which personally I think will happen, but for the dire brand of football he has brought to this club. Mr Lerner, his record proves he's useless....get rid of him whether we go down or not. Sick of people defending him now....MCLEISH OUT !

for the good of football in general, mcleish should stay until the end of the season, and see us get relegated .... his 3rd relegation in 4 seasons .... he will become unemployable and that way he will never NEVER get another job in football. and no one will ever have to suffer this fools negative brand of anti-football ever again.... christ, i am so depressed right now.

And who is surprised? I'm not a betting man, but I had a feeling I should have stuck £50 on that score line this afternoon. Gone beyond being upset. I will accept relegation gracefully as we honestly do not deserve to stay up any more. We need a mass demonstration to change this awful leadership though. A measly 150 people again will just get laughed at - we need a few thousand.

Lerner is to blame make no mistake, people asking him to sack Mcleish now, a bit late for that now, he hasn't got a clue Lerner, 1 win in 13 games and he's still manager, just *****-off Lerner.

Don't get me wrong I don't disagree about McCleish and comments above. But tonight our energy levels were excellent, and on another day we would have been a couple of goals up before we got the goal our efforts deserved - and yes then in no time at all it all blew up in our face. Not the time to do anything other than get behind the team. I cannot believe with that commitment, closing doewn, and intent that things will not drop a bit better in the next 3 games, with a win somewhere and at least not 3 blanks. Sounds desperate and is desperate, but desperate times mean it is not time for a McCleish out day anymore - that was always meant to be if we are safe. Hopefullyy last years win against West Ham will be matched by a win at Albion. Herd should have buried that header after first minute etc etc etc. The stats are flattering to Bolton - certainly up to we scored we had miles the best chances. Bollards. Up the Villa!

said after sunderland this was a must win. I used the BBC predicter and in every sensible permutation I could think of if we lost tonight we go down. Well the wage bill will be well and truly reduced as they all head for the exits and good riddance. Warnock and Heskey our two most derided players this season were our two stand out performers. Totally gutted. Whats worse is any drop in season ticket sales will be put down to being in the championship now rather than sending a powerful message. Gutted

I agree stennyvilla, I thought we played v well first half, penalty 1 min later was sao unlucky, local derby is probably good for us next. Time to get behind the lads. 12th man needed more than ever. It's still in our hands. C'mon villa!

Even without another point (which seems entirely possible) our goal difference could keep us up (having also done the bbc predictor for remaining games)

Feel sick, honestly cannot believe we threw it away in a matter of 2 minutes. I know relegation has been talked about for a while but I never truly believed we would go down, I honestly believed we would find enough to beat either Sunderland or Bolton. Heart breaking to watch our club fall apart before our eyes. I can see us getting 1 point at most, if we stay up it will be because of results for other sides. Praying for a fricking miracle.

There's soooooo much value in axing McLeish now, what would you rather at our next home game, 30,000 depressed fans looking down at Eck's ginger nut, pumping negitive energy around the ground and onto the young lads OR 40,000 screaming passionate fans right behind the young lads with K Mac holding the forte?? I definitely think we'd have more chance at nicking a point against Spurs with a full house behind the team and stand in manager

Not long got in. Couldn't believe McLeish's tactics second half. 'Hit it over the top for the quik fella.' Heskey played really well until he went off and then they bought Big Kevin Davis on and well... well we're in the poo.

as soon as we sent ahead it was always going to happen, this dip***** just doesn't know how to hold onto a lead, don't think we will get another win this season a draw against norwich is best im hoping for and QPR to draw with stoke and lose the other 2 and we will stay up just because other teams are more ***** than us, and we are S H I T

AdzVilla - spot on mate. Fire him now, Kev Mac to caretake for the next 3 games. There's no way McLeish is going to get us playing, surely the way we're playing and the position we're in tells us this ? He has no clue. The players don't know what they're doing under him. HE MUST GO NOW or we're down for sure. UTV

son_of_cher - no, but he could do the next worst possible thing - hire the most hated manager, from our most fiercest rivals, totally against ALL the fans, and let him take us down while playing the worst football seen at the club in a generation. Yep, nice work randy - you've got some explaining to do for this and (to a lesser degree) last season!

Son _of_cher Would suggest if we are relegated he wont have to . Benty Nzobia Collins & Gabby would fetch 50 mill + the sale of Villa itself would represent a tidy profit on his investment. I am no accountant and I am sure there are people on here that would point out why this argument is wrong, but its just niggling at me that the fans would be unable to complain because the wages paid to our players would be to high for the championship.
