Shame that the kid got sent off. He'll learn from it. Albrighton's done it before. Benteke was quality. Won more headers in first 5 mins than Bent has in his whole career. Bent had 2 ******** touches when he came on. No idea why he came on when we needed to keep the ball AND away from our goal at that. Misjudgement from PL. Zog wasn't even on the bench when he would've been ideal. Delph's passing was better than Bannan's AND he can tackle etc. aswell.

Cant say much about it really the sending off made a huge impact but we were still poor for the most part... too much pressure in front of our own crowd... Delph was our best player in MF I still dont get the critiscism how many of our players were prepared to take the ball and run forward with it? 1: Fabian Delph I think he is one of the few that played without fear... El Ahmadi is going backwards, Albie was very poor, Holman just struggled to get into the game on the Left... Guzan/Vlaar were immense nothing but praise for both Vlaar did make a few passing mistakes but its hard to fault him given how much he gave for the team... The Norwich Goal my god a comedy of errors Albies naivety in trying to play the ball to Bent, we concede the corner and everyone falls asleep the ball is whipped in and nobody is on the backpost just to compound things... This team is young and heavily relies on confidence the booing at the end will only make things worse we cant turn on the team because as soon as that happens we are in serious trouble... Only Sunderland is next I would have said we would win but they are happy to sit deep and defend and that doesnt suit us... We are due an away win Im gona go out on a limb and say we will win 1-0 next week or it will be 0-0... Sunderland wont beat us they are just as poor... Take out Fletcher and you take out every goal they have scored... So stay positive people I felt this game was must win but at least we still scored some points playing atrociously... I think its just a case of surviving until January and staying above the bottom three we lack the quality to do much else so two or three proven faces will surely arrive in Jan then we can begin to look up the table again...

Bennett is not only crap, he's also stupid.

Very poor today...just like the McLeish days all over again...Guzan, Benteke and Vlaar were pretty good the rest were hopeless. Delph is a very poor player IMO....Albrighton did nothing right, Holman was anonymous, Bent was a waste a complete waste of time...KEA couldn't pass or tackle....hopeless to be honest....I'm beginning to fear for us now....we look as bad as Wolves did last season.

I really thought Lambert could make us better, but no-one could polish this turd we call AVFC into anything other than relegation favourites.

Had high hopes for Delph getting a decent run, but he's just not creative enough and doesn't show for the ball. He was hiding for much of the 1st half. Really need N'Zogbia, Bent, Ireland starting. It's all very well being hard working, but there's a complete lack of threat and no quality in the team outside of Vlaar, Al Ahmadi and Benteke. The rest are dire. We'll be ok, and PL will sort it out eventually, but with the fixtures we have coming up it's gonna get worse before it gets better.

Delph and KEA are championship material at best they provide no service for the forwards of any real quality or vision, they get caught on the ball by opponents because their reactions are too slow when in possession ( you get more time in the championship) and when they invariably lose it they either give the foul away or are too slow to recover..........we will always struggle to score with those 2 in the team scenario: ball breaks forward to gabby or benteke but they're held up by defender so play it back to delph or kea they get closed down because they haven't the vision to see whats on so play it to defender, who has now come under pressure so play it back to Guzan who boots it down the pitch - during that phase of play, which happens at least a dozen times during a match, the one pass with even the slightest vision or creativity comes from brad guzan - what's the point???
