Aston Villa fans have been through a lot this season
already. Coming to terms with the fact your side is almost certain to be
relegated, with still a third of the season to go is heartbreaking.

The club is clearly missing Fabian Delph and Christian
Benteke after being sold to Manchester City and Liverpool.


Villa’s most recent draw with League two side Wycombe had
fans up in arms over their latest performance.

Faithful fans have complained to the club after reporting
Brad Guzan and Joleon Lescott for telling them to f*** off

A witness made these statements to this Villa fan page.

“I object to two senior players spending 90 minutes laughing
and joking on the bench and littering the pitch with their chewing in some sort
of childish game.

“The guy next to me knocked on the dugout, they both turned
round, we said they were disgraceful and obviously didn’t care.

“With that Guzan told him to ‘f**k off’, I knocked the
dugout and told Lescott he is supposed to be Villa to which he replied:’ I am’.

“He turned away, I knocked the dug out again and said: ‘why
are you not acting like one?’ with which he said: ‘f**k off’

On the other hand Captain Micah Richards tried to speak and
reason with the fans, despite some of the abuse he may have received.

Villa have only won one game for the season and sit dead
last on 8 points. They will need a complete turnaround if they are to escape this
poor run.



The inclusion of new manager and Real Madrid legend Zinedine
Zidane sounded good to the ears, but in reality might not have worked so well.

After a week it’s all positives for the Frenchman, after his
side pulverized Deportivo La Coruna 5-0. Gareth Bale scored a hat-trick and
Karim Benzema scored a brace.

Luke Modric has said the team dynamic and attitude has
completely changed since Zidane’s arrival and he hopes it can continue.

“We played a lot more rapidly and we functioned as a team in
the way was always should function,” Modric said. “Today we were a team from
the start, up front, at the back and in the middle.
