  • For the away side the goal attempts says it all.

    where was that performance last week, hidden by O’Neill’s negativity ?

  • If only Gabby had of squared that ball to Reo Coker….very frustrating but it was a much better display, roll on Fulham!!

  • Petrov was again disappointing. He doesn’t look interested. My Fantasy Football team, Chakrabarti, are 7th in the overall standings! Weirdly enough though, I’m not even top of the Villa league – I’m bloody third! Villa fans have great foresight.

  • I thought it was a gritty performance and a decent point. I can’t help but think if Luke Moore had been on from the start, things may have turned out even better. He is so much more mobile than our other forwards and always give defenders something to think about. I hope he gets a run and proves me right. The lad deserves a go. I thought NRC looked better this week, which is encouraging.

  • Good, fighting performance, defense outstanding, Martin Laursen superb. Thought Big JC played very well up front for the hour or so he was on. A point and performance that will hopefully calm some of the moaners and groaners who have been voicing somewhat negative opinions since the opening day reversal. With regards ‘the enemy’, I have to say that I thought James Milner really looked the business. He’s developing into quite a player.

  • Stats seem to Indicate Villa had the Lions share of the attacking chances, if only we could convert these into a few goals.

  • Laursen wS 10/10. Petrov was better. Luke more is too arrogant and lazy. Aggie and Young are speed machines.

  • We certainly quietened the geordie hordes. In full voice at kick-off time, twenty minutes into the game you could hear a pin drop.
