By the way, any ideas why we can't produce two good halves IN THE SAME MATCH????!!!! It really does beggar belief. Every fri**ing match, not just once in a while.

Despite the improvement in the 2nd half, we were still completely devoid of ideas going forward. The last 15 minutes were just aimless long ball after aimless long ball up to no one in particular. Not good enough at this level, I'm afraid. Maybe it'll work better in the Championship next season.

We are down so let's start planning for the future. That starts by sacking Lambert immediately. He is tactically clueless he hasn't got his tactics right in a single game all season, from 5 in midfield against west ham on the opening day to 5 at the back tonight against a team with only 1 up top. His signings are abysmal and his man management is awful he can't do anything and there is no way he will get us promoted.

Appalling all of them - the players, the manager, the management and the owner. The players demonstrated they can roll up their sleeves and get into the opposition (albeit a poor side) they have to accept their share of responsibility for not doing it for 90 minutes, too often it's been only half the match. Perhaps PL has finally realised Bennett is a complete waste of space, hopefully he'll realise Bannan isn't much better. Unfortunately nothing can be done now, we are so poor I've given up hope, for those of you who think sticking with Lambert is the right thing for the club, you have your wish. I would simply add I think he has demonstrated time and time again this season he has no idea who his best 11 are, he has no idea what formation to play them in, he has no idea when it comes to tactics. I really can't see this improving when we're in the Championship next season, I'll give it until December 2013 when we're mid table with no prospect of promotion and finally our clueless, gutless management and owner will pull the trigger - tw*ts. Even my (very) optimistic brother has thrown the towel in - we won't be going to VP until January 2014 when we have a new manager and some investment.

Bennett is a lesbian masquerading as a Premier League footballer. He looks like a young shaven haired lesbian and plays like one. Why is he getting picked? He - along with Bannan - is *****. Lambert is clueless. 4 4 2 is the way.

26.05.82 has it spot on. We should all read that post 5 times over then mail the club en masse with it ! Oh, Phil Thompson on SSN - "Lambert got it tactically wrong in the first half. So, so wrong..... Villa are down"

All the more tragic in my mind as there is enough in this squad to just about finish out of the bottom 3 with even a moderately competent manager. In Lambert, we're *****ed.

You're obviously angry Piper, but that's bang out of order. How old are you?? Grow up, really. Bennett is clearly not good enough, and neither is Bannan, frankly. Is he really an international footballer?? But no need for such ridiculous, offensive insults. By the way, I'm neither a woman, nor gay. Just disappointed at such a childish insult.

Agbonlahor was *****ing me off tonight aswell because he kept drifting inside because he wanted to be up front although he was far more effective on the left wing and started to tear debuchy a new arse hole!

Them stats are wrong. Our 2nd half performance was a match winning performance. . Everton away. West Ham at home. We need 6 points. City and Arsenal straight after. I'm gutted! The team gave everything in the 2nd half. We was lucky Newcastle was nervous and sat back.

What really gets to me is to make Randy pay any attention you have to stop going down so it affects his cash flow.But the whole point of being a supporter is to go with it through thick and thin. Looks like waiting till the last minute to renew those season tickets again. Blaming Lambert is to easy he arrived to the dross no one wanted was given 20 mill to replace 8 players a third of which went on one signing.Maybe now the real shift in players will begin, because there needs to be wholesale changes in the playing staff but knowing Lerner we will probably sell Bentke.

I blame Lambert for one reason and one reason only and that is he cannot get 90 minutes out of his players. You can call them rubbish, dross etc and you wont get much of an argument from me because they aint gonna set the world alight. However we have had some very good team performances for 45 minutes this season. The first half against Manure, the Arsenal match, 1st half against the Baggies etc, etc so there is potential there. Its just that you dont know when they are going to turn up and for how long. Thats down to the manager.

He is not free of any blame Oscarac dont get me wrong he is responsable for tactics and making sure the defence is well drilled. But I still feel whoever came in was on hiding to nothing unless we spent 60 mill we were never going to replace 8 squad players with any real quality,hence the so called "youth policy" which he never applied at any of his other clubs .My hope on Lambert arriving was he could get the best out of what was left and add 3-4 real quality players. Now it will be difficult to get players to come to us with the spectre of relegation hanging over us.

You'r dead right in what you say Merlin, I think it is what we were all hoping for. But he seems incapable of doing the one thing he has some control over and that is getting consistant performances from players on a regular basis which we all know is the mark of a good manager. I mean in some of the matches this year I was wondering if 11 body doubles had been sent out in the second half as their play bore no resemblance to the guys who had trooped of at half time. I still have a problem with this use by the club of "youth policy" Last nights team did not have one teenager in it and half the team in the second half was over 25. I think this is an easy way of getting around the fact that most of the younger players are not progressing as players in the way that good young players are in other clubs. Our academy has not thrown out one high quality player in donkeys years as far as I can see. E

Can I just make one more thing. I hate and detest Geodie *****ers. There was one last night giving it large shouting 'you're not laughing anymore' on Witton Lane, on one hand fair enough because boy, did we give them ***** when they went down but on the other hand he was shouting at women, kids, grannies and grandads on walking sticks. Tosser. I was just willing for a group of hard Villa lads to square up with him. The****. I ******** HATE Newcastle
