Exactly and when was the last time a top flight club lost by five goals to a lower league club? Newcastle losing 1-5 at home to Birmingham a few years back is the nearest I can think of.

Take nothing away from Forest but that was a farce today, with better finishing it could have been double figures

I wonder how many of the people frothing have listened to the whole interview and not just read the sensational headlines.

And I am a Villa fan. And no i'm not furious



So who were those people who were booing at the end of the game? Furious fans ??


Furious fans yes. But not furious about something taken out of context and overblown.
Furious about our mumbling stumbling manager who is seemingly incapable of motivating and organising a side to beat a struggling 3rd Division team.
Furious about another woeful home "performance"
Furious about our club seemingly heading headfirst down the toilet.

Hope that helps

I quite like West Ham but I was quite pleased that they and Villa got put out by lower Division teams with their attitude.


There was nothing wrong with my clubs attitude. We played more or less our strongest team available. Unlike other clubs whose managers play lip service to the FA Cup and then make upwards of 6, 7, 8 changes

Nottingham Forest lost at home to Oldham only last season.

In fairness to Lambert, Villa played quite a strong side yesterday. The problem is that most teams in the bottom half of the Premier League aren't very good and are ripe for an upset. Considering how much money is chucked at these sides in salaries etc it's amazing how poor they are.



Last ground visited(update requested by Spud): Wellington . New grounds 18/19: 38

Well since Lambert has been manager we have gone out of cups to teams from all 4 divisions. Maybe next season we can get knocked out by a Conference team

Villa may well be poor but it's highly unlikely they will be in the bottom three, which shows how bad some of these elite league clubs really are.
The salaries paid to some of these inept performers is indeed quite staggering but the only way the clubs in question choose to deal with it is to hire even more highly-paid replacements who are not guaranteed to be any better. But as long as you finish seventeenth or better, who cares - it's all paid for anyway! The whole thing is a house of cards that will one day come crashing down. Until then of course, it is the Best League in The World.

I am becoming more and more convinced season by season, that the top-10 Premiership teams should be carved-off and sent into a sort of 'Super-League' (horrible name); still getting their 'fair cut' of the TV money; but that that money should be spread further to the remainder Premier teams plus a dozen Championship sides, then making-up a 22-team ''ordinary' Premiership.

The Championship would take ten League 1 sides to get to 22-strong and the ten promotions would filter down the system, keeping the next three divisions at 24 teams each and reverting all step2-4 divisions back to 22 teams each - more than enough!

The second-tier Premiership would have two promotion places to the Super League, everything else promotion & relegation wise preserved as-is, excepting increasing Conference National to four promotion spots, like League 2.

TV would then have a much greater pool of 'two tier Premier' matches to choose from, four fixtures for each match-up in the Premier-SL, plus all the ordinary Premier games in a much less predictable division and with an extra set of promotion/relegation 6-pointers to boot.

What's not to like?



Professional cretin.

I'm sure there will be at least three worse teams than Villa come the end of the season.

As for the quality of the Prem, the West Ham v Fulham game I attended in November has to go down as one of the worst games I've ever seen, how people pay top dollar to watch that sort of dross every week is beyond me.

Re: [Isaac] aston villa managers [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

given the tv money now going to the PL they could let all spectators in for a nominal amount...the only downside is that teams in all lower leagues who are dependent upon gate income would find that they are charging more by necessity.. think the whole model is broke...

Re: [Henfield Bee] aston villa managers [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

That's sort of happening in the FA Cup now. Premier League clubs doing tickets at the kind of prices you pay to watch Conference South. As half of the gate money goes to the away side it's not being nearly as generous as they pretend.
I think clubs in easy reach of Stratford are going to suffer when move there. They're going to have offer some decent deals to get bums of seats for the less attractive opposition. That's assuming they're still in the PL, it's got disaster written all over it if they're not.

It's started big time on "Heroes & Villains" with a huge clamour for Bruce Out.........to be replaced by Big Sam.
Could be worse - John Terry as player-manager ? Wink

Last season the Blades lost 1-2 to Millwall on 20 August 2016. That made it one point from their first four league matches and bottom spot in League One.

There were supporters on fans' forums demanding the removal of new manager Chris Wilder, as he obviously was out of his depth.

An extra 99 points and title win later those posts didn't look too clever.
