Mat, when do you think it's time to panic after Paul Lamberts latest comments
by Maradona_AVFC101/14/2013 12:00:15 PM
If we lose our next 3, will the axe fall?

Does lambert have a problem with Stephen Ireland. Without him we just play the long ball to beneteke?
by Corysince19881/14/2013 12:01:44 PM
Hi matt fans arecrying out for Randy to come out and exsplain his intenion for the club
by Chris1/14/2013 12:01:55 PM
Do you think we could still mount a late charge for Europe Matt?
by Lambert No.11/14/2013 12:02:05 PM
Do you fink we can get to wemberley, I fink we be ok if gabbi can start
by Lambert No.11/14/2013 12:02:21 PM
How many more games will PL be given if this run continues??
by Burty 191/14/2013 12:02:22 PM
do you not think its time for bent to have his run? he may not be a total work horse but we all no what he provides.....goals!
by pricey811/14/2013 12:03:41 PM
Maradona, have you finally stopping arguing with Pat Murphy?! As for you 'don't panic' question, I'm panicking now! I got a sense of last season's Bolton game against Southampton on Saturday, that events were conspiring against Villa and no matter what they did they couldn't win/draw. I worry about the effect these setbacks have on the young and not so young players. There's still games and time etc, but it is very very worrying right now.
by Mat Kendrick1/14/2013 12:05:28 PM
Hi Mat, Why won`t Lambert consider playing Warnock?
by StroudVilladan1/14/2013 12:05:36 PM
Two quick questions, one why on earth are we not recalling Mr Warnock and Mr Hutton for the experience and what do you think about a cheeky bid for Scott Dann and Roger Johnson?? Please dont all shout at once!!!
by Martin, Halesowen1/14/2013 12:05:55 PM
Mat is it time for PL to admit to the fans his mistakes and not keep making feeble excuses.
by Terry Jones1/14/2013 12:06:04 PM
Bent is work shy and he hasnt scored the goals when he has played...Gabby has never really cut it at the top and benteke is inconsistent....bring back O Neill..
by Burty 191/14/2013 12:06:09 PM
Guest, the word at the moment is that Paul Lambert's job is safe - will post a link to today's Brum Mail back page story saying just that, when I get chance. Villa are reluctant to make another managerial change, but obviously this run of form can't go on forever. Lambert admits 'he knows about the pitfalls of football' and is 'not silly', so the fact he is even discussing his future shows how alarming things have become
by Mat Kendrick1/14/2013 12:06:24 PM
i think things must be bad as people are asking about warnock and hutton and even heskey
by john m1/14/2013 12:06:35 PM
We can't gew down Matt, wih veh villa!
by SmallHeathDave1/14/2013 12:06:42 PM
Lambert is so arrogant and that's why we will go down.
by Mad M1/14/2013 12:06:43 PM
@pricey81 he can only provide goals if we provide service to him...we only do that for Benteke because he works the flanks and the air...Bent doesn't. Great player, but doesn't fit the personal we have.
by Craigytweets1/14/2013 12:06:59 PM
hi matt im sure you will get asked about transfers that wont happen, any injury updates? any chance makoun would be recalled? and how about nigel reo coker on a free?
by john m1/14/2013 12:07:17 PM
morning matt is it true reo coming back
by aston villa 4 ever1/14/2013 12:07:19 PM
Corysince, Ireland is clearly not a favourite of Lambert, otherwise he would be getting more game time, having said that, Ireland has hardly been in sparkling form when he has played.
by Mat Kendrick1/14/2013 12:07:23 PM
I don't think we can say Lambert should start publically humiliating himself can we? He can't say "yes, it's a lost cause" - he has to give players hope
by Craigytweets1/14/2013 12:07:34 PM
any chance we can recall makoun? how about reo coker on a free?
by john m1/14/2013 12:07:36 PM
Matt we have to blame o niel for the state the club is in. All the money he spent and only 2 of the players he brought are still at the club
by Corysince19881/14/2013 12:07:43 PM
hi...I'm wondering whether there is appetite at the club to actually spend and get some experience in. Lambert seems to insist experience is there....is it?
by Craigytweets1/14/2013 12:08:24 PM
Lambert has a problem with any player over the age of 23! He can't handle big name players, he is acting like a sergeant major.
by Andy W1/14/2013 12:08:30 PM
@John m - didn't think we could recall Makoun due to work permit issues. As for Reo-coker - he's at ipswich now
by Craigytweets1/14/2013 12:08:52 PM
I blame O Leary for all this
by Mad M1/14/2013 12:08:54 PM
any tranfer news matt
by aston villa 4 ever1/14/2013 12:09:02 PM
has lambert got any moves lined up for hs week
by phi1/14/2013 12:09:05 PM
do you think new faces will be in before Albion?
by Maradona_AVFC101/14/2013 12:09:12 PM
Lambert No.1, a late challenge for Europe. Think the Capital One Cup would represent Villa's best chance of that. Need to score early, in the first half at least to try to salvage a Wembley trip from next Tuesday's semi final at Villa Park
by Mat Kendrick1/14/2013 12:09:16 PM
Burty, taking each game as it comes...... as the cliche goes. I really think Villa will resist sacking the manager, especially when there does not seem to be any kind of clamour from the fanbase for Lambert to get the axe
by Mat Kendrick1/14/2013 12:09:24 PM
Hi Mat, You said in a webchat a few months back if we get relegated Lambert should go. Do you still feel this way?
by Andy W1/14/2013 12:09:34 PM
@Craigytweets reo coker contract at ipswich has finished now
by john m1/14/2013 12:10:03 PM
Who should we sign Mat? I agree with you get Huddlestone for 3m and a decent centre half
by Emile H1/14/2013 12:10:11 PM
Do you see any one coming in this week matt
by Chris1/14/2013 12:10:12 PM
Are we looking at bringing in some experience to bolster the defence before the end of the January transfer window? Loan?
by Display Name:Phil1/14/2013 12:10:14 PM
Mat, which players do you think are available for Villa in this window?
by MC1/14/2013 12:10:16 PM
as for the Ireland debate...he is very inconsistent and has not a lot of work ethic, playing Bent and Ireland in the team is inviting Centre Backs to waltz onto our back four :)
by Craigytweets1/14/2013 12:10:29 PM
evreyone slates ONeill but he finished 6th three seasons on trot.....villa fans are so fickle...
by Burty 191/14/2013 12:10:43 PM
Sir Alex Mcleish should return, we would never lose 8-0 or against Bradford with him in charge.
by Mad M1/14/2013 12:10:54 PM
Pricey81, I like Benteke, I think he will prove to be a very shrewd piece of business and he fully deserves his place in the side. But even with him and Weimann, who has been one of the brightest parts of a season of struggle, Villa still have the joint worst scoring record in the league. When he is fit you would think the manager would want to find a way to accommodate Bent because his finishing could yet prove to be the difference between Villa staying up or going down
