Stan Collymore reacts angrily on Twitter after hearing about Aston Villa's planned crisis talks

Aston Villa are set to hold crisis talks on their season so far in New York.

Stan Collymore has slammed Aston Villa’s board after it emerged that they were set for crisis talks yesterday evening.

The Guardian has suggested that Randy Lerner will discuss Villa’s disastrous start to the season with chief executive Tom Fox and sporting director Hendrik Almstadt in New York later today.

Villa’s board are keen to assess where things have gone wrong for the club this season, but Collymore seems to feel that little will be achieved by the meeting.

Villa’s crisis talks come after the club failed to beat League Two side Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup.

Despite Micah Richards giving Villa a lead to defend, they looked nervy and failed to hold on - with Joe Jacobson netting a penalty to seal a replay for the Chairboys.

Villa fans’ frustrations came to the fore during the match, with dissent shown during and after the contest.

Claret and Blues supporters were seen in discussion with Richards on the pitch, and abuse was then hurled at the players as they boarded the team coach after the match.

Villa are currently 11 points adrift of safety in the Premier League, and they have failed to win any of their first 11 matches under Remi Garde’s stewardship.
