4 goals in 9 games. Suggests 17 goals in the season total. Our lowest ever total is 36.

Yes I think we will go down this year.

If we'd even drawn, I'd say no. Burnley are certainties, QPR would've been had they failed to win this evening. We've shot ourselves in the foot thirty seconds after loading our gun and deciding to take our shoes off.

If we change manager we could get a boost. It really can't hurt to try.

We won't though, so another season in which survival in May is the best we can hope for is ahead of us.

Oh joy.

It's looking likely. Bizarrely I think the teams that we look like beating are the mid table ones. We struggle against teams at the bottom because we can't break them down. We struggle against the good teams because we are shit. The mid table teams dominate possession and attack us because they expect to beat us and that means we can counter attack

The last nine games last season produced 1 win, 1 draw, 7 defeats. So even with our 10 point start in the first four games that's 14 points from the last 18 games. I can't see Lerner doing a thing but I really pray he does. There are one or two much better managers out there but they won't be free for long.

We'll go down if Lambert remains in charge.
Get rid of him, his hirsute assistant and all the other vestiges of his time with us. He's had plenty of time to find the answers and has failed.

I'm just really jaded by it all. There was a time when a Villa defeat would eat at me for the following week, but now by the next morning I'm just apathetic to it.

We won't go down - Benteke will scrape enough goals for us, we'll get an unexpected stretch of good form inspired by someone random, and that'll get us just enough points to be above the many other shit teams littering the landscape (Sunderland, Burnley, QPR, Newcastle if they keep Pardew).

I think Benteke going off in the summer (as you wouldn't begrudge him doing) will finally fuck us though.

 Unless Lambert goes, and we spend a bit of money, the yes.

 I'd replace him with McLaren now.

Right now I'd replace him with McLeish to be honest, at least he had a plan, it was a shit plan but he had one and he could coach players to play to it.
