  • We are being an “unlucky team” at the moment and its depressing. Unfortunately results mean everything. We really have struggled against the very poor teams. I believe we need a result against one of the top six (or four) to give us some confidence

  • Hey, they had 4 shots and scored 3 goals. From the stats it looks like we dominated but the new players need time to gel. I know it’s wins that count but would you rather we played dreadfully and won? If so, what kind of future does that point to. Playing well and having that many shots on target will eventually pay dividends. I just hope we don’t have to wait too long.

  • very unlucky tonight, once again failed to take our chances but gave ourselves a mountain to climb within the first 10 mins. plus points CAREW awesome, our goal threat went once he went off. good debut goal for Young will do his confidence a world of good. Hope for better luck against the hammers on saturday.

  • We were playing a very poor team defensively tonight,most teams create chances against NUFC,we concede goals ourselves far too easily and i`m concerned with only having 29 points.

  • Unlucky Villa, you dominated against Newcastle just like Spurs did against them, but what Newcastle done aginst Spurs and Villa was take their chances, 4 shots on target and 3 goals is a brilliant strike rate for anyone. One high for Villa was the performance of Carew and a debut goal for Young, well done.

  • ok OAL whats going on?is there a truce on now?Im not having a go what is it like to be dissappointed every derby game.Yous remind me of Villa v Birmingham.Until we won.

  • We can’t expect miracles overnight. Carews goal was good. Even Alan Shearer said so. Can’t explain why it wasn’t given. Things will take time. Just hang in there everyone. VOTN is right.

  • Carew’s goal was spot on – the replay shows Sibierski tugging his shirt. Absolutely gutted as we were desperately unlucky not to have got even a point out of this. Gav McCann looked a shade of his normal self – he allowed Milner to breeze past him for the first goal and was sloppy with his distribution. Any takers on MON playing Mellberg/Ridgewell at the back with Cahill in the midfield holding position?

  • *****ed off. We just cannot win. And the teams we beat at the start of the season are beating us. *****ed off.

  • 9 shots on target and 54% of the ball, have Villa had so many shots on target in any other game this season?
