Aston Villa’s painful march towards the Championship quickened a bit a Sunday, with the sorry Villans battered 6-0 by Liverpool as Villa Park. It was another awful performance by Remi Garde’s side, who even let Kolo Touré score!
However, after the game, centre-half Joleon Lescott, no doubt after receiving a shed-load of abuse about the result, Tweeted a picture of his expensive car in what seems to be a rather lame attempt to silence the ‘haters’…

Now we can all understand that the abuse footballers receive, either on social media or in person, must get somewhat annoying, even taking into account their massive wages. After all, they are just human beings, no matter what their salary.
However, flashing a photo of one’s expensive wheels after a 6-0 defeat, particularly in the current climate of fan anger at ticket prices, does seem incredibly childish, no? Unless it was just a case of bad timing?
