Aston Villa fans have really been put through the mill in recent years. After Tim Sherwood kept them up and took them to the FA Cup final in 2014/15, the next season went badly for Villa.
Sherwood was sacked in October 2015 after just eight months in charge. He was replaced by Remi Garde but most of the damage was already done.
Garde departed at the end of March and Villa finished bottom of the table with only 17 points and were relegated for the first time since 1987.
Villa have been rebuilding ever since and last season under Steve Bruce they reached the Championship play-off final but were defeated by Fulham.
This season they are well placed to finish in the play-offs again after they went on a brilliant run from February onwards.
Along the way, they have had a lot of misses in the transfer market. Here he will look at some of the biggest transfer flops Villa have seen from years gone by.
He was signed for £9.5m from Premier League rivals Wigan in 2011 with a lot of expectation.
Sadly he offered Villa very little during his five-year spell and he notched just four goals from his 80 appearances.
Villa fought off competition from Hull City to acquire the services of Beye from Newcastle United.
The defender was sent off in just his third game and he struggled to find a place in the team again.
He made just nine appearances in two-and-a-half years before his contract was cancelled early by mutual consent.
After initially joining on loan from West Brom in 2007/08, he signed permanently for £9m the following summer.
Once seen as one of the brightest young talents in English football, Davies never found his best form for Villa and he made just 49 appearances during his four seasons.
He was put on the transfer list at the start of his final season before he left on loan to Leicester but during that winter window, he signed permanently for city rivals Birmingham.
During his career, David Unsworth was seen as one of the toughest and most reliable centre-backs in the league.
He made the move to Villa from West Ham for £3m. But before his career at Villa Park could get going, he had departed for Everton after just a month because his family did not like living in Birmingham.
Seen as a decent young prospect for Chesterfield, he moved to Aston Villa in 2012.
The striker really struggled to make an impact and he left after just two seasons.
Since then he has played for five different teams in the Football League and is currently at League Two side Crewe Alexandra.
Jose Angel Crespo
The centre-back joined in 2015 from Cordoba, after he had made only 52 appearances for six clubs.
After a very ineffective six-month spell where he made just one appearance, he joined Rayo Vallecano on loan in January.
At the end of his first season in England, he signed for PAOK where he has been ever since.
The midfielder gained a lot of admirers for his displays for Bolton in 1995/96 and he earned a move to Villa for £4m that summer.
But at Villa Park, he looked like a totally different player. A mix of poor form, manager fallouts and being transfer listed overshadowed an appalling two-year spell before he fled for Crystal Palace.
The striker became the Villans’ record signing at the time joining from Millwall in 1990.
He could never find his form at Villa where he scored 11 goals in 46 appearances before he signed for Celtic in the summer after just a year at the club.
The Cameroon international was signed by Manchester United for £3.5m in 2003 with a lot of expectation.
But he could not live up to it and after just 18 months he moved to Villa Park for £1.5m.
He did not find a place at Villa either and he left after a year-and-a-half making just 11 appearances.
The Croatian striker signed for Aston Villa for a fairly large fee of £6m from Dinamo Zagreb in 2001.
He did not live up to the hype and after just one season, in which he made nine appearances, seven as a substitute, he was loaned back to Zagreb. He then moved to Club Brugge on a free in 2003.
