Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Bradford defeat

Aston Villa lost 3-1 to Bradford last night in the League Cup.

Bradford City are on the verge of creating history, their win at home to Aston Villa last night in the Capital One Cup places them in pole position to reach the final.

Every positive Bradford are feeling right now, Villa are experiencing negative ones, having watched their side leave themselves in a precarious position ahead of the semi-final home leg.

It was a pretty galling result for Villa fans, who have seen their side go into a tailspin since their shocking 8-0 loss to Chelsea last month.

To try and gauge the reaction of supporters in the wake of last night's defeat, we took to Twitter to see what Villa fans have been saying about their team, and here are the results...

@beardedmunners: I think I'm starting to lose faith in Paul Lambert #AVFC

@PBsixsmith: These so called 'kids' are 23 or 24, they're grown adults then not 12 year old boys #avfc

@villafootball: So now Lambert must go? Come on r u kidding! We down a leg in the Semis! Ya he must be sacked because we in the semis! Oh p*** off

@andrewstone85: that was Bradfords moment. we'll turn it around at villa park. I'm over the disappointment of the result. over two legs we'll do them #avfc

@baldfellacraig: The players need sweat blood for us on Saturday, that's the least they can do after this latest disaster #AVFC

@bedworth05: Warnock should never of been dropped in the first place, #avfc and to a certain extent Hutton shouldn't of either #experience

@avfctomr: Thought Bennett really struggled tonight. Bradford had that worked out from the 1st minute #avfc

@villalee: #avfc the Chelsea game has destroyed this team! If it takes Hutton/ Warnock to shore up so be it. That back 4 are in self destruct change it

@dthevillan: A final thought, Lambert & team have quite rightly had a bashing but for too long Lerner has shown no inclination for our club #AVFC #blame

@gwoffer: just remember the league cup semi final is decided over two legs much like the PL season is made up of two halves. Keep the faith #AVFC

@sunnyr86: Get in 2 CB. I like Vlaar but he can't be trusted with his injuries. 2 CB asap. Distin, Hangeland, Lescott.. Anyone. #avfc

@mattstead91: Lambert has proven his acumen as a manager. Defeat against a spirited Bradford who have beaten Arsenal changes nothing #avfc

@lukejjenkinson: we are paying Warnocks, Huttons & Makouns wages so why aren't they part of the squad? Clueless people running the club #AVFC

@warrenfree: As a #AVFC fan, I can safely say, our defending is the worst I have seen in years!! We are becoming a bit of a laughing stock..

@colinmck70: Didn't hear many people wanting Lambert, Lerner et al out after Norwich and Liverpool, we will be fine,just keep calm #dontpanic #avfc

@swisstony72: before we feel sorry for #avfc,they spent £20m in the summer,they have a team of nippers cos thats what they chose to have....

@elgingari10: Quick thought, if we don't sack Lambert now We'l be stuck with him. What manager would come in after the transfer window and save us? #AVFC

Can Lambert turn it around?
