Krulak: Lerner aware of fans' anger

Aston Villa fans have been told that owner Randy Lerner is aware of their grievances towards manager Gerard Houllier after some supporters openly called for his removal.

• Houllier confident of survival

Prior to Saturday's 1-0 defeat at home to Wolves, a large banner hung from the Holte End that read: "Had enough, Houllier out". However, Villa stewards acted to remove the offending item.

Following a result that leaves Villa just one point clear of relegation thanks to a run of only one win in six games, director General Charles C Krulak insists Lerner is very much aware of the sentiment amongst supporters.

"I was terribly disappointed by the game," Krulak wrote on the Villatalk website. "All of your comments are fed to Randy. But I am certainly aware of the position we are in.

"Believe me, we do not want to suffer relegation. I am not happy about where we are and can assure you that Randy and the board want success as much as the fans.

"The fans are not ignored at Aston Villa Football Club and have not been since Randy arrived."
