Relegation-threatened Villa rid of manager.
Struggling Aston Villa sacked boss Paul Lambert last night after a terribly embarrassing campaign so far with the club sitting third from bottom, and having broken a humiliating Premier League record in scoring the least amount of goals in 25 games – a laughable 12 scored.
As ever Twitter reacted with typical fervour – here’s the very best!

Villa s shocking scoring record was always going to cost Paul Lambert unless it improved …and it didn’t.

Everyone expected Paul #Lambert to last the season. Is he the first victim of the £5bn TV bubble?

Paul Lambert will be back, and good luck to him. We got what we want by him leaving, can’t begrudge a career elsewhere.

Paul Lambert stood down as Livi manager this day in 2006. Football is a weird world.

It was right for Paul Lambert to go. He’d run out of ideas. Don’t like the insults though. Unnecessary. Did his best. pic.twitter.com/WERGnQ7Kmf

Really surprised Aston Villa pulled the trigger on Paul Lambert. Too much at stake to wait. Results poor, but just didn’t think they would.
