Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard is under pressure after his team’s latest defeat
Gerrard’s team lost 1-0 this afternoon to West Ham – who was at the bottom of the table –
“As soon as Gerrard took out Luiz, we were back to the absolute mess, shapeless team we always are,” said one user.
‘I’ll say it till I’m blue in the face; he is out of his depth. That won’t change until he’s gone.’
Another replied: ‘He’s toxic, arrogant and thinks it’s all about him. I’m sure he upset the locker room, I don’t see any solidarity in that team anymore.”
“Please, just fire Gerrard now,” another pleaded.
‘Don’t think about it, don’t talk about it, don’t eat first and then sleep on it. Fire him. If you want to put a smile on every Villa fan’s face tonight, fire Gerrard now.”
Gerrard, who won Rangers their first Scottish Premiership title in ten years in his first managerial job, has been criticized for not knowing his best team or system despite the season now running for four games.
He alternated between a diamond formation and three up front, but that only earned him more criticism from Villa fans.
“The problem with Gerrard isn’t just his lack of a preferred formation or his refusal to drop favorites in favor of players in form – the problem is that he doesn’t see the obvious,” said @MaxGarfield2003.
Crossing relentlessly against West Ham, known for their dominance in the air, is just plain stupid. ‘
“Not all his fault but Gerrard has no idea,” added another fan.
Villa is 15th in the Premier League with three defeats from their first four games
“How can you have players like Buendia, Bailey and Coutinho in a team and not even look close to scoring. I know stats say we get more points with Ings and Watkins together, but this formation isn’t right.”
The former Liverpool man has also been criticized for his treatment of Leon Bailey, who was back on the bench this week despite an impressive performance last time.
“Fully expect Bailey to leave before the end of the window,” said @VillaJakeF1.
“He definitely doesn’t want to be a part of this if he’s relegated to the bench every week. Another masterstroke by Gerrard.’
Several fans have called on Gerrard to leave the club despite arriving just over a year ago
Some fans have questioned the treatment of Leon Bailey, who was a substitute today
Villa now sits 15th in the Premier League, looking to build on a disappointing 14th from last season.
Gerrard replaced Dean Smith in November 2021, but has not yet had the desired impact that many thought he would.
