MATCH SUMMARY

Villa fail to score for the seventh game in eight League matches and lose for the fifth successive game as finally, finally, the Paul Lambert regime - one that should have been ended in the Winter of 2012 - is finally put to an end over two painful years later. Sadly the repercussions of Lambert's toxic reign would outlast his departure as Villa would struggle to recover from his mismanagement for seasons to come. The worst manager in Villa's history? Without question.

KEY MAN

115 games and 56 defeats later Paul Lambert's appalling, degrading and toxic reign is over as even substitute Christian Benteke cannot save him this time, Tuesday, 10 February 2015.

ON THIS DAY

Paul Lambertโ€™s Villa lose their thirteenth game in twenty five Premier League matches.

Since the start of 2013-14 Paul Lambert had led Villa to thirty three defeats in sixty three League matches.

Without a win in ten League games Paul Lambert recorded the second lowest goals total ever in a top flight season after 25 games (12).

The defeat to Hull represented Paul Lambertโ€™s 101st league match in charge during which time he had lost 50, won 25 and scored 98.

Of his total of 115 games in charge, Lambert had lost 56.

Following this latest defeat, Villa dropped into the bottom three, swapping places with victors Hull City.

Lambert had been simply atrocious from appointment but the sad reality was that under Randy Lerner these records had been building with a devastating inevitability.

Indeed, since the start of the 2011-12 season, Villa had taken 139 points from 139 league games.

The only surprise of this latest defeat was that Villa finally acted and sacked Lambert.

In truth Lambert could have been sacked early in his first season, he probably should have been fired after recording Villaโ€™s worst defeat in history in December 2012 and he certainly should have been dismissed at the end of his first campaign.

Yet, not only did Lambert retain the support of the Owner he had significant backing from a crowd who had demanded his appointment as a replacement to the much maligned - but whisper it quietly - far more effective manager on and off the pitch, Alex McLeish.

Indeed for many it was not until Palace away in 2014 that the patience broke. Yet the hierarchy still did not act and another round of bizarre recruitment saddled Villa with a squad simply not good enough for top flight football.

โ€œManagers will often say it is a results business - and ultimately, that is what they are judged on. The statistics doing the rounds about Lambertโ€™s reign are damning. And it is not just this season, but every season so far.โ€ *The Birmingham Mail*, Thursday, 12 February 2015.
