We lost away at Donny once.  3-0.  We lost over two legs to Bradford.  This is a small boil in the history of Fcuk ups of Aston Villa.

Yes, but they were in periods when we were shit, and knew we were shit, the Lambert era especially. This is supposed to be the bright new era wih billionaire owners, a world class manager and loads of top players.
Whilst I love to throw as much criticism as possible at Lambert that Donny game was on DOL's watch. Fickle.

I know.

The stadium looked rather fine on TV, although television is often kind to football grounds

Hopefully a wake up call to both Uni and the team. Very odd Villa performance. We just couldn't get a real grip at any stage. Great atmosphere by the Liga fans. One of the best I've ever experienced outside of the San Diego and Naples. We walked from the old town to the ground and it was very friendly with the Polish fans. No hint of bother. Arriving at the stadium with the police was another story as were the searches. Beyond piss poor organisation after the  game. Kept inside the ground for an hour and then as long a wait with only 3 buses on a loop to take 1700 Villa fans back to the old town when most of us didn't want to go there.

 Liverpool smashed us without getting out of second gear. Palace cut us open with ease at times. The signs were there so why oh why we went with a reshuffled defence with god awful Chambers, piss weak at defending Digne and a debutant CH i just don't understand. First black mark for Unai in my opinion.

What's pissing me off most about Emery is he is starting to look like a cheque book manager . All the youth fucked off out and the likes of Lenglet and Tielemans bought in . Prove me wrong please but the young hungry vibe sat better with me

I'm sorry but palace did not cut us open with ease, that absolute nonsense. We didn't play well tonight, but had we been more clinical at the weekend, and emi not slipped we'd have won 5 nil. Calm your knickers like

Deeply deflating. So many uninterested, anonymous performances. It's becoming a theme for a couple of players.

Palace played through us quite a few times. Could of gone 2-0 up second half when Eze waltzed into our box and only a full stretch save from Emi kept us in it. Teams are opening up our defence way more often than last season and that can't be just down to Mings absence.

Konsa was atrocious.

Commonly referred to as a Rolls Royce? Fuck me

The bloke who looked weak and unimpressive at Spurs last season looked weak and even more unimpressive last night.

I expect more from our captain, also. There's not much middle ground with him. Either superb, or rubbish. Grab the game by the scruff of the neck, shout, motivate...speak?

Bailey should only ever be used as a sub in home games.

Chambers has never been any good.

Fucking hell, Villa. Not amused at all, this morning.

Back in hotel after a few beers. I was in with Legia fans on halfway line so couldnít share my thoughts with Villa fans but I thought we were really poor and selection was wrong. Defence was a wankomelette and I thought we were too easily stretched and also looked weirdly uncomfortable on the ball. The team that finished should have started I reckon.

Atmosphere was very loud, and maybe some players were put off by it, but they need to man up. It was loud but orchestrated - no resemblance to what is happening on the pitch - and I donít think it was intimidating. I donít think any Villa player actually hd a good game

It was a bit shit that wasn't it?

We were never out of it but the defence looked dodgy from the off. They were up for it, well supported and got going straight away. Instead of calming it down we just kept inviting pressure.

One thing about our football is that we're always a threat going forwards, and that can leave us stretched at the back. When the back four aren't solid we can really come unstuck and that's why Mings is so important for us; he does what nobody else does and properly leads the defence. I can see us getting ripped open more often this season unfortunately.

Anyway, 5 games left, we'll win plenty to top the group.

Defensively away from home, we're a huge concern right now.

We are equally suspect at home defensively, we've just not had to play anyone really good yet. Palace had 2 or 3 good chances to make it 2-0 and that in a game we dominated. Mings aside, I don't know what's gone wrong but I get anxious as soon as our opponent has the ball in our half.

Kamara needs to benched. His form was patchy towards end of last season too.

Awful, awful performance. Zero control. Their experience really showed as did our lack of experience. We barely laid a glove of them second half. They consistently targeted our left. Digne was absolutely awful. Tielemans reduced any argument he may make to start a game. Chambers was a cart horse. If anyone wondered if we did enough business in the last window, this was an absolutely emphatic answer.
