WATCH: 'We'll be having a party! When Randy Lerner dies..'

Villa fans decided to commemorate Villa's loss to West Ham with a song about the death of Randy Lerner

I can't deny my anger at Villa's board right now and neither can most Villa fans. But I'm not with this.

Let's be clear, it's tongue-in-cheek. I doubt ANYONE would wish for the death of Randy Lerner, it's just a distasteful song. But you've gotta think about Lerner's family in this, he's not done anything near deserving anyone wishing death upon him and this isn't really the best image for Villa fans to be projecting right now.

Randy Lerner's a bit of a twit, but you can't be singing about his death. It's just not right, even if it is a joke and especially in an age when people will make any excuse to vilify football fans, you don't want to give yet more reason to tar the good name of Aston Villa fans.
