    I don't actually think its all over for us. We can still rescue this but two things need to happen. Lambert firstly needs to settle on the formation that we played in the second half tonight. A flat back back 4, 2 holding midfielder players, an attacking midfilder with Benteke up top and two either side who when need be can make a 5 in midfield. No more **** about with 5-3-2. Lerner also needs to free up some money in fees and wages and we need to bring in at least one, preferably two defensive/holding midfielders and an experienced centre back especially now Dunne has had a set back. It is so frustrating. I have seen enough even recently to know that with 2 or 3 good signings in the positions we are crying out for reinforcements in and Lambert doing away with 5-3-2 we can escape. We are not a million miles away. Had we have made the necessary signings already this window we'd have beaten Southampton, beaten West Brom and won tonight as we were the best team for long periods in all them games. This season could well be one of what ifs if we don't act now. What if we'd have signed 2 or 3 players in January. Its not too late. Has bad as things have gone we are still with in a point of safety and 3 - 5 points off a number of others.I just hope we don't go down with a whimper and Lerner puts his hand in his pocket and starts the fight back by funding the players we need and give everyone, manager, players and fans, a massive lift for the fight ahead.

    Can't tackle, no technique. Sylla out.

    He's a defensive midfielder who's big and black. What more could we ask for?

    If we sign any sort of major players tomorrow, I think we could get the money back by sending Lambert on a world poker tour.

    I don't know how many points, therefore how many wins/draws are needed to survive. But we are not the only club down there. We are only in the bottom 3 on goal difference, 1 point from the safety position at the moment. If you don't think we will suddenly start winning loads of games, why do we tend to think others will. Are Reading any better than us? Are Wigan any better than us? Are QPR any better than us? When you look at the league table, no. Every team has its problems, including us. We only need 1 point more than the bottom 3, whether that be 30, 34, 35, whatever. I believe we have the capability to survive, we have the goal scoring capacity, we may be able to improve our defending with more training time now we are on 1 game a week. We are not dead yet.

    There just aren't enough Triple Threat matches in the Championship these days. I'm going Millwall Bristol City win by DQ following an illegal chair-shot by Watford.

    You talk about players not developing in our struggling side, well it hasn't done Weimann or Benteke any harm. It's all about mentality and application.

    Like 99% of us I have never heard of the guy. He may well turn out to be a good signing he may not. Logic would suggest though it is a big step up from the French 2nd division to the Premier League and you'd expect it to at the very least take him a number of games to settle and adjust to playing at a much higher level. Hell of an ask to expect him to hit the ground running and make the instant impact we desperately need.

    Looking forward to the first "Why did Lambert spend £2m on Sylla, when we could have had Sissoko for the same money" post

    Here is an interview with him: I can't speak French but he makes more sense than Gabby.

    It's not a con trick, it's his money. He doesn't have to spend a penny on the football club if he doesn't want to, it's not like he hasn't pumped in a fortune already. The money tap does have to stop somewhere though you know. He has decided the line has been drawn and the club has to run on it's own income. That is fair enough, we have no right to expect any more money. That is something spoilt children demand.

    I can foresee 3 possibilities: 1) I love Sylla. He made the difference and kept us up this season. Now we can push on. 2) God I hate Sylla. He's not better than Bannan and I can't believe how poor he's playing, even in the Championship 3) I still can't believe he killed Benteke

    Strong, Fast and will run all day. Absolute beast as well at 184cm and 80kg. His passing isn't too bad either. A big step up for the lad though. Will be difficult for him to hit the ground running.

    D'you think we should ask the Premier League and FA to award the points to us instead, since we clearly won the game! What these stats don't count of course are the things we don't do, like trying to tackle Cisse for his first goal.

    Rumor that Villa have booked '3' rooms in their 'usual' hotel. Don't tell Nile Ranger, Ched Evans or Lewis Dunk...

    Funnily enough I was thinking about this today. There's no loyalty left in the sport anymore. It's all greed. I've never understood how a player so easily leaves so much behind for an extra £20K or so a week - baring in mind he's already on £50K. Some people earn that in 4-5 years. Shame.

    If he's big, can tackle and pass to Westwood & N'Zogbia then sign him up!

    most footballers are thick as sh it anyway, theyre just lucky enough to have their hobby as a job, nobody is worth £30k / £40k or even more a week, not even a world leader so why should these pri madonnas get that? as i was saying to some fellow villa fan friends yesderday, footballers arent in it today for the love of the game, theyre simply in it for the money, their undeserved 15 minutes of fame they should all be on £5k per week, and ticket prices for supporters should be alot less, about £5 a game, why should they earn £40k for 90 minutes work? pi sses me right off nowadays

    Bit harsh to see Westwood being included in a couple of people's lists of 'poor' signings. He's been a tidy player who's stepped up 3 divisions, didn't cost a lot and will continue to improve.

    Orange (or lemon) flavouring is an honourable exception. I was talking about currants, raisins, that sort of shit. We had some shortbreads at Christmas that had fruit in them, masquerading as choc chips. Bummer.

    Lambert is basically an idiot. With him in charge, we are totally ****. Weimann has been scoring goals and gives 100% so he leaves him on the bench. Wonderful. He really doesn't have a clue. I can't name one manager who I think would do any worse than Lambert. I'd take Bruce, Curbs, Di Matteo, Adkins even McCarthy over this fool. To stay up though, we need TWO midfielders and John Gregory.

    Needs to go. Now. Whatever faith I had that he could even get us back up should the worst happen has been completely eroded. You don't win promotion by trying hard for 45 out of 90 minutes. Quite frankly, as uninspiring as the names of potential replacements like Curbishley are, it has got to the stage where they simply cannot do any worse.

    Thanks for cheering me up, thats the funniest thing I have read in ages. The best crosser in the premier league but yet he can't take a corner.

    I doubt it,they have enough on their plate already. An owner who does not give a shit. A manager who has not got a clue about tactics, or who to put out on the park. A home ground that is getting emptier every game. And a very long time since we last won.

    I'm not a big NFL fan but I usually watch the Super Bowl. I don't have a preference this time around. I find that it's nice to watch huge sporting events like this as a neutral.

    This. He is just one of the players in this squad that isn't good enough. He doesn't do anything to drag a performance out of nowhere, create anything, look motivated or bust a bollock trying to get back in a game, win a 50/50, play a sublime through ball, bang one in from 25 yards. He is just a nothing player. I honestly think he would struggle were he be sold to a championship side. Compare him to Lowton. Lowton makes mistakes, but he has a great pass, will take somebody on. He show potential and can influence a game. Bannan does nothing and For me he's symbolic of everything that's wrong with our squad. People putting on the shirt regularly that aren't good enough for Aston Villa and comfortably worse than anything we've had in recent memory . I dont want to see the following In our first team again. Bannan Clark Bennett (can go on loan to improve) Ireland Lichaj Stevens Again I'll repeat I'm not blaming him for the first half I'm just sick of seeing such a poor player representing our great club. It's embarrassing and it make me angry every time I watch him have either a crap game or just have no influence whatsoever.

    Fast becoming my favourite player. I knew he had something more about him than the rest of the academy striker sprint team from the way he played in the Valencia friendly. Still lot more to give and looks like he's got the fire in him to reach his potential.

    Oh here we go with the Gabby is shit and doesnt give a shit about the club scapegoat bollox. You all bloody make me laugh. Gabby has scored a shit load of important goals for us over his tenure, as well as vital assists and contributions. You all must have short memories or something, look elsewhere for excuses as to why we are so shit please.
