Bramall Lane

Villa are hammered at Bramall Lane and fall back to third from bottom of the table, level on points with Millwall and one point above safety. Tommy Docherty, with four wins in twenty two games, heaps blame on an 18 year old, 16 year old and a 23 year old as there seems little personal recognition of the much fawned over managerโ€™s own performance.

MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€œA thoroughly disappointing and poor all round show.

โ€œIt is a long time since I have seen a side so outclassed.

โ€œMy heart bleeds for Villa.โ€

Villa great Ronnie Starling.




โ€œSheffield United are a very good side.

โ€œWhat chance do you stand if you give away four silly goals?

โ€œJohn Phillips [18 and in his 8th game for the club] lets in two soft ones for the first goals;

โ€œFull back Mick Wright is caught on the wrong side of his hand for the third and Jimmy Brown [16] played a bad ball out of defence for the fifth.โ€

Tommy Docherty.
