Former Aston Villa striker Stan Collymore said his former club would be a blah.

The controversial footballer thought about the dramatic 3: 3 draw between Villa and Sheffield United and praised the Blades for completing the game at home.

He claimed on Twitter that "good teams take the initiative" and said Villa would be a "blah" if Villa went up.

He tweeted, "Ref

But in the end, good teams take the initiative from the beginning.

"That's why #SUFC not far away (no right to spend with £), and #AVFC it will plague (huge pounds should be top 2) when they rise.

"I do not have a Villa Ghost myth, it's a big concern."

The fans quickly commented on the opinion of the former man from Liverpool and England:

Nigel AVFC: So we have no spirit ??? FFS !! Although we are returning from a 3-0 comeback to one of the league's best teams …

Tagmeister: There was zero spirit. We were lucky with all three goals. We were miserable.

Scott Duncan: Come on, Stan. The mind is clear to see. Hull. 2-0 down. Fans turn after 40 minutes. Draw 2-2. Sheff Utd. 3-0 down. Fans turn, stadium empties. Draw 3-3. Say what you like about the performances, but that shows character especially with our "fans" …

Sam Brogan: I could not say better. Stan's working rate is shocking as fans demand passion and work as a must-have just was not there

Gary Mallinson: Agreed Stan

rob: Sheffield United is exactly what the villa is not. A team full of hungry players who are not afraid to commit themselves to it. Happy that they could get something tonight, absolute garbage for 80 minutes. Only positive tonight was that we got a point and Mings looks like a class signature.

Kieran Shaw Stan – is it a matter of trust? How can we be 80m so poor and 10m sensational? Do we have the players to the competition? Thoughts ?

Compliance report

Aston Villa scored a sensational comeback and drew 3-3 with Sheffield United after three penalties from Billy Sharp.

Andre Green equalized with a header in the 94th minute following a goal from Tyrone Mings and Tammy Abraham.

The Blades tore Villa apart and looked as if he was home and dry when Sharp made his hat-trick after 62 minutes.

What's up at Aston Villa?

His first goal made the visitors after only eleven minutes, the second was however controversial.

Villa thought it would have worn out as he kicked the ball out of Lovre Kalinic's hands to convert.

There was no complaint about the third and it looked as if the villa was ready.

But in 82 minutes, Ming's villa gave a lifeline as he headed for the corner of Conor Hourihane.

Then, Abraham stabbed four minutes later before Green made an unusual comeback after death.

Blades take on themselves in less than half an hour and a seemingly unbeatable lead of three goals.

But there have been some crazy results this season – and Villa never shows that she's not done in the race for promotion yet.
