MATCH SUMMARY

Villa end the season with a second successive thrashing as they are ripped asunder at White Hart Lane to leave them with twenty defeats in thirty eight Premier League games having failed to score seventeen times in 2013-14. That Paul Lambert was retained in post after recording Villaโ€™s worst ever defeat just four months into the job was astounding. That he remained in place for the 2013-14 campaign and throughout its unfolding misery was a devastating indictment on the incompetence and ill will that had infected the club. That he should be relieved of his duties at the season end was unquestionable. Instead he was rewarded with a new contract.

KEY MAN

Ryan Bertrand signs off his loan spell with a twentieth defeat in thirty eight Premier League games under the woeful Paul Lambert, Sunday, 11 May 2014

Paul Lambertโ€™s Villa finished on their lowest points total for nearly 30 years.

Paul Lambert presided over Villaโ€™s biggest ever loss in the clubโ€™s 140 year existence.

Just one of these statistics was enough for Lambertโ€™s removal.

Yet for a second successive season Lambert was allowed to survive.

Unlike in 2012-13, however belatedly, the support had turned and saw the reality for what it was.

Needless to say Lambertโ€™s reaction was to blame the support.

Already the squad looked like it would take years of investment to rebuild to anything resembling a side that could compete above the relegation places, Villaโ€™s owner was playing with fire, it was just a matter of how big and how damaging the blaze would get.

Meanwhile, even Lambertโ€™s signings were headed for the exit door.

A squad that Lambert built hadnโ€™t survived even two seasons as Brett Holman, Antonio Luna and Aleksandar Tonev were gone, with Matt Lowton, Joe Bennett and Leandro Bacuna soon to be ostracised and Karim El Ahmadi and Jordan Bowery finished.

Midfielder Karim El Ahmadi made his final appearance for Villa aged 29 before returning to Feyenoord for a fee of ยฃ630,000 in September 2014. El Ahmadi joined from Feyenoord for ยฃ2,520,000 2 years earlier. In total El Ahmadi made 56 appearances, 13 as substitute and scored 3 goals.

Forward Jordan Bowery made his final appearance for Villa aged 22 before returning to lower league football with Rotherham United in July 2014 in return for ยฃ270,000. Villa had paid Rotherham ยฃ567,000 for his services 2 years earlier. Bowery made 22 appearances, 16 as substitute without scoring.

Left back Ryan Bertrand made the sixteenth and final appearance of his loan spell before returning to parent club Chelsea.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œ[The negative reaction of fans] is never nice because the lads have given everything in their body to avoid relegation and get over the line. โ€œSupporters come a long, long way and pay good money to watch and try to see their team win. Youโ€™ve got to be big enough to take it. โ€œTheyโ€™re a young group of players as it is and itโ€™ll probably affect even the experienced ones.โ€ Paul Lambert, Sunday, 11 May 2014.
