You can't argue Gabby's off form; he's his usual self.
Anyone with half a brain can see that our struggles are nothing to do with personnel, it's all to do with system and style. Lambert is so far out of his depth it's unreal. That £5m we had for Lambert should be getting rid of Paul, not buying Ricky. Sinclair has been at our club a week and he's already static, much like Gabby is. No movement = easy to defend.
Pathetic that Tom Fox or Lerner are refusing to do anything about it. Doesn't he realise he's never going to sell the club if we're in the Championship?
Anyone with half a degree of decency would resign. Anyone with half a brain cell would sack him. This must be his last game in charge.
Bent's just scored his 4th goal in 5 games for Derby.
Agbonlahor is a complete waste of space ! Why does he keep selecting him. Every corner has hit the first man. Sissokho and Hutton's crosses are atrocious. I wonder will mumbles say that we were excellent again. We will be in the bottom three after tonight. If we continue to surrender so tamely in the remaining games, we will go down.
I'm not watching a Villa game again until Lambert's gone. Absolutely no point. Incidentally, that's what we'll be getting each game while he's in charge
We're in the smelly stuff big time. I don't know what goes on on the training field but the whole basis of playing a passing game is that you have players making dangerous moves and the player with the ball seeing those moves and putting in the pass. We were nowhere near good enough to put them under pressure. Something tells me that the players do have the skills, to a fair extent, but they look as though they've never played together before, at least where it matters in midfield. In fact, they seem to be getting worse.
Hull were pretty poor. No wonder they're down near the bottom. But in the end they won comfortably. This can't go on. Lambert's had more than enough chance. He can't do it. He has to go.
