Villa suffer a chastening defeat in only their second game of the season as twenty minutes after the game a section of fans are still calling for heads to roll with โ€œBuckley must goโ€ resonating around an August evening in Aston as former player, now Director, Chris Buckley, is the subject of the fans ire.
