You have to laugh. Things are looking dodgy at Upton Park, but desperate is a more appropriate adjective for Villa Park. 15 goals conceded in the last three games, seven in two home games, with three shipped against relegation rivals Wigan. This is now officially a crisis.
It's beginning to look as if there's some truth in that old adage, you win nothing with kids. This is a very, very poor Villa team indeed which appears to be in free fall. McLeish was vilified whilst at the club and Lambert seen as the big claret and blue hope. Well look at where Norwich are in the table without the Scot. Perhaps former Birmingham boss Chris Hughton was the man Villa needed.
The fans turned on Lambert today. They should be careful: Avram is still out of work!
