It would be fair to say that in the current climate and situation at Aston villa the last thing the players wanted would have been a trip to the small and encompassing Adams Park in High Wycombe.
The home of League Two side Wycombe Wanderers played out to a soap opera of affairs in Villa's terrible season as Villa players were subjected to some sustained abuse from the travelling fans.
Aston Villa fans have every right to be annoyed and to vent their frustrations, although some may have overdone in terms of the vulgarity of their dissent.
The match saw Villa captain Micah Richards approach a group of more reasonable but equally perturbed Villa fans after the game for a heated but frank exchange that won him many plaudits.
The best bet for Villa players however was to hang their heads and not react to the abuse.
