Villa are relegation candidates

When Aston Villa lost 1-0 at home to Crystal Palace on Boxing Day, their manager’s reaction was telling. At least, said Paul Lambert, they had worked hard. Given that last season Villa had the seventh-highest wage bill in the league, owner Randy Lerner may feel entitled to more than hard work. After a lucky 1-1 draw against Swansea, Lambert said: “We are not in a relegation fight”. As they are four points off the drop zone and averaging less than a point a game at home, others may feel differently.

<b>Graham Taylor (1990-1993)</b><br/>
<b>CLUB RECORD:</b> Led Lincoln to the Fourth Division title, and Watford all the way from the bottom tier to a second-placed finish in the top flight. Also took Watford into an FA Cup final, and finished second in the league with Aston Villa in 1990.<br/>
<b>ENGLAND:</b> England were knocked out by hosts Sweden in the group stages of Euro 92, ending a solid start to Taylor's reign. He was pilloried for replacing Lineker with Alan Smith in the second half against the Swedes before the team crashed to a 2-1 defeat - leading to the headline 'Turnip Taylor'. Taylor then lurched from crisis to catastrophe, allowing a documentary filmmaker to follow England's failed 1994 World Cup qualifying campaign, and seeing his side beaten by USA in Boston in summer 1993. There was nowhere else to run other than for his notice after going a goal down to San Marino seconds into the final qualifying game, even though England won 7-1.<br/>

In this photo illustration a school student eats a hamburger as part of his lunch which was brought from a fast food shop near his school, on October 5, 2005 in London, England. The British government has announced plans to remove junk food from school lunches. From September 2006, food that is high in fat, sugar or salt will be banned from meals and removed from vending machines in schools across England. The move comes in response to a campaign by celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver to improve school meals.
