Paul Lambert: Won just two of 12 league games

Villa have won just twice in 12 league games since Lambert replaced Alex McLeish in the summer, and they go into Saturday's home game with Arsenal in a relegation place.

But the Villa Park crowd has so far gone easier on the Scot than on his predecessor, and Lambert said: "The fans have been brilliant with me.

"I understand it's not where you want to be and the fans have every right to voice their opinion. But they have been brilliant with me and all I can ask for is to stick with us.

"The bottom three is not where I want to be, that's for sure. Myself, the club or the fans don't want to be there or near that. But I also know the bigger picture and it's not just a quick fix.

"Some of the performances have been very good. We've just not had that break, that little bit of luck to go your way. There have not been too many times when I've walked away and been disappointed with the way we've played."

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

n all seriousness the attitude of some of these commenters is very disappointing. I didn't realise F365's readership was so dumb, I've always thought of you all as relatively well informed. Thanks for showing me the light.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
