  1. Sorry guys I can't be bothered to read all the posts BUT Anyone trying to defend lambert in any way shape or form HANG YOUR HEAD IN SHAME.

  2. So where do I even begin? This trip ended up being the best excursion across the pond to date! Even though the football was absolute shite..... Crystal Palace v Aston VIlla Momma Peev and I landed the night before into Heathrow and spent the night by the airport. Up bright and early to head to Banstead and the Woolpack pub to meet up with Loyal, B6, Alan and the rest of the Addies coach and Kiddie Lions Coach. Was a bit annoyed as the tube made us miss our initial train to Victoria but it gave us a chance to grab some breakfast in thee station. Large full English and a pint o Guinn

  3. overall i'm still fairly posotive after last nights game. we played well at times. I don't think you can overemphasize the importance of Benteke scoring, and where it could lead him to for the rest of the season. I don't agree with all of the negativity around signing Holt. He is backup. If Benteke goes on a roll and stays fit, he will purely be a backup player. 2 seasons ago he scored a balls load of goals for norwich in the Prem. the next year he still scored 8 goals in the Prem. He is someone to spring from the bench, and he is on loan, so didn't cost us a fortune. If he chips in with 4 or

  9. The other way of looking at it is, yes we were sh*t today but west ham (a genuine mid-table team) could not beat us. We are nothing if we are not resilient .

  10. I personally wouldn't touch Lampard. I think he failed with a very good Derby side and then failed with Chelsea. I wouldn't want to be his next experiment. The Danish manager has ruled himself out hasnt he? I don't. Smith was becoming out of his depth. Whether we are successful in our next appointment or not, i still think it was time for Dean to go. I thank him for what he did and i will never forget some of the good times but if we want to push on, we need someone more advanced than Smith imo

  12. ive missed something here according to all knowing SKY Sports, --Grealish has left with the best wishes of the Villa management and players,and they respect his wishes its all been very amicable,!! and the decision to leave was very hard for him to make!! sorry to me this is all P.R. trying to win Villa fans over,some already have thanked him and sent their best wishes!! blimey i must be old school---he has gone to a new club new city and probably a new home---he has gone to a PREMIERSHIP rival,,not a foreign club or club in a different division---he is now on the football field the opposit

  13. Really disappointed with Grealish especially for all the kids that would have looked up to him, thought he might be different but sadly just another reflection of what football is these days. Hate all this Sky big 6 entitlement rubbish that we should be grateful to have just had Grealish for a few seasons. We made him the player he is today and we stuck by him through thick and thin. I remember days in the Championship where it looked like his petulance and off field antics might prevent him from reaching his potential. It's not so long ago I watched him lashing out against Forest gettin

I havent been on lately or i would have posted this thread sooner,im suprised there wasnt a thread already on here as he's the most iconic footballer in the world,when you think of the greatest Maradona is the first name that springs too mind.

  15. Hi Ron, and welcome aboard, what you say is bang on, we commented only yesterday how much time Foden had time and time again during both halves, he was initially the cause of both goals and apparently was awarded MOM,,yes it happens every dam game--but who is to blame?? players?coaches? both??----but one thing for sure it needs addressing!!

  16. I've just seen Villa lose a cup final and I'm happy with the result, never thought I'd hear myself say that but I was dreading this game. Losing now is water off a ducks back, but to be humiliated in a cup final is something I never want to see again.

  18. Its my big worry but i read something today that made me realise that maybe I am being a little harsh. Its our first year back in the Premier League and if we average around 1 point a game, we should do enough to stay up. We have 22 points from 23 games so we are just below that at the moment. It would be nice to see us show the same fight and desire as the sides in and around us though.

  21. changing him wont make a difference??? im sorry but it is both the players and the managers responsibility for poor results. I know lerner doesnt help lambert, but a good manager will still get decent results. Prime example, Tony Pulis. Palace looked doomed before Tony came in, now look at them - he's transformed them - they are solid defensively, and can still manage to score goals. Palace still have the same owner, but changed the manager, and they are a completely different team. If lerner appoints a new manager, just because we have lerner as an owner, it doesnt mean results ON

  22. absolutely Freddy, if they can't be up for this then they all need blooming dropping. Massively important game for our season, and not just in points. AVFC need to show the fans they are serious about survival and know how unhappy we are.

  23. As far as I'm concerned survival is the goal again, not league position. I'm happy being patient while the rebuilding happens and I'm not going to pop an anti-depressant after a loss, I'm convinced that our resurgence is going to occur quickly and it'll be down to the right signings rather than the right amount. Lambert is the man for the job, and if Lerner is being legitimately portrayed in the statements released about him not selling then he could very well be the right owner.

  25. ^^^^ This ^^^^ I've tried to avoid dipping into the thread as it can easily be interpreted as racist to suggest that the country is full. Trouble is it is full…and breaking down. No matter what our politicians tell us the NHS is on its knees, held together by the lower tiers of nurses and junior doctors who work themselves to the bone. Our country’s infrastructure is knackered and needs major multi billion pound investment. Our social standards shock us all, regardless if we consider ourselves working class, white collar or rich. The depravity & laziness of some make my

  26. My God, really wish I'd come straight home and not bothered with the stopover to watch that shite. Albrighton was the only one with any life about him today really, apart from maybe Helenius. Lambert's words will come back to haunt him now and cannot believe he said he couldn't fault the lads' "attitude and endeavour" after that display. He's taking the p*ss now.

  28. It wasn't the first time I've watched Man Utd dick us and I know it won't be the last, but it's irrelevant who we played, we were abject, again. United didn't break a sweat yesterday and neither did Liverpool, Newcastle, Spurs or Everton... We are absolutely dire and I'd argue that we've played just as badly as that in games against City and Southampton that we won. We've also played that badly against West Ham and Sunderland and managed to hold out for a 0-0. It's absolutely pathetic. When have we genuinely given a good performance this season? Arguably Chelsea... Maybe Arsenal, but it's

  30. Not talking about on here but do some villa fans just not have the ability to look at the bigger picture?? On Facebook so many people blasting tonev, IMO he's Very rough around the edges but there is something there and to write him off now would be stupid. Someone said baker should give up playing football and Clark should get ready for a career at Bolton. Same person said that Westwood is useless lol. The first half was a poor showing, a very poor showing but do you know what it reminded me of? Last season! And there's a reason for that, last season we had an inexperienced young sq

  31. A point that needs to be taken into consideration, was it not 26 odd games without a clean sheet?? we have now had 3 in 6 games. improvement. The performance was shite but with 4 first team players out injured we did what we needed to do. I i have asked is for improvement and 7 points up on the same fixtures played last season has to be a positive point!!

  35. I forgot to mention! After reading this post this afternoon I was in the garden and heard chickens in my neigbours garden. I pooped my head over the fence to see 6 chickens happily clucking around the yard. I was about to call my daughter to see the chickens when my neighbours Wife emerged from the back door, she promptly grabbed the nearest Chicken and hung him on the fence, then another and and another! She then grabbed a very sharp knife and slit their throats!! I tell you, I was barely able to enjoy my chicken nuggets at dinner! ;)

  48. You don't know this though do you? All we know is the purse strings have been tightened. You said the other day that you know he's looking for a buyer so surely it would make sense that he wants to spend as little as possible. For all we know tonev, bacuna an helanius could be on £7k a week. The way I look at it is lambert's reputation and livelihood is on the line so he'll get the best he can afford. He's a clever man and has more footballing knowledge than all of us regardless of what certain people think, If they knew more they'd be a football manager. So if we can see that the likes

Well you obviously never watched us player under Mcliesh would with a full strength squad decided to field 5 defenders against tottenham, u know with Lambert we will at least try to win a match. 20mill really that much wow, I mean that will buy loads or prem quality players won't it!!! Ah great yer lets change the manager cus it can't get any worse, we'll I have to say that's the best reason I've ever herd for changing a manager! So what happens if we change and don't improve are we going to sack the next manager too cus it can't ge
