It’s hard to forget just how bad the Derby County team of 2007-08 performed in the Premier League, though the current incarnation of Aston Villa runs the Rams close in terms of being the worst ever.
Watching Aston Villa is like watching an Under 11's match. Getting even the basics wrong. How can a team get in such a mess?

Not a single Aston Villa player interested…… simply embarrasing

For such a proud former titan of English football, their steady decline over the past few years has culminated in one of the most humiliating seasons of all time.
Aston villa truly are the worse performing team to grace the premier league

Their performance at home to Chelsea, during a 4-0 loss, could even have passed as a late April Fool’s Day joke.
Aston Villa should run competition where they pick out 11 fans from crowd to play our games. At least they would show some heart. #AVLCHE

But it’s no laughing matter.
Aston Villa's performance this season are worse than a Shakespearean tragedy. Absolutely abysmal.

Aston Villa is a reminder that, no matter how bad your club is, it could be worse. A lot worse.

There have been a number of poor decisions at boardroom level for the once proud Midlands giants, though not even the clueless suits can be blamed for the glaring inefficiencies of some of the club’s players.
I've never hated a team as much as I hate this Aston Villa team.
Love the club, hate the players.#avfc

Even club stalwart Gabriel Agbonlahor has let his side down, missing out today due to an investigation into his conduct while on holiday in Dubai.
