As Aston Villa slump to yet another home defeat in the form of a 3-1 loss to Everton on Tuesday night, these are the best jokes from both self-deprecating fans and stunned onlookers alike.

Survival, although still mathematically possible, is looking less and less likely by the game.
Here are the best jokes as Aston Villa lose 3-1 to Everton at Villa Park leaving the side eight points from safety with just ten games left:

Villa fans go missing at 74 minutes as their club was formed 1874. The defence marked the 1905 FA Cup win by doing similar 5 mins in tonight
