  • Wow that was hard fought. Very physical team Sheff Utd, didn’t give us a second on the ball. Would have been happy with a draw. Blinking well delighted with a win. Nice to hear their manager, Wilder, so magnanimous in defeat.

  • Didn’t find it depressing at all, just a tough match. Johnstone was immense. A few could have looked up more when passing, but we defended well against a team who don’t give you a second on the ball.

  • Johnstone brilliant, Thor superb in the deep midfield role, fantastic strike to win it. Could have lost, fantastic to win. They were a tough nut to crack.

  • As a Blades fan, have to congratulate Villa on the win from a great goal. We’re proud of our Blades who have come up from League 1 and attacked the Championship with some style. Tonight we were the better team and dominated for long spells against a talen

  • Excellent win that, I would have taken a point before the game. They are a physical side and perhaps Davis would have been better coming on for Hogan earlier on – but I cant have any complaints after getting 3 points. Three consecutive 1-0 away wins we’ve

  • it was like a game of chess with them pretty much doing a job on us,,, these are the sort of games where the set up does not suit hogan,,, so we need to see if we can improve this,,,

    grealish holds on to the ball too long at times,, needs to give an

  • A hard fought away game that in previous seasons we would of lost and great to see a late strike, be interesting how we take the game to Burton on Saturday. Thought Bjarnason had a great game in the middle, Jack after a quiet 1st half woke up in the secon

  • Definitely not depressing. If you were there. Loved it at the end. Our lot know how to celebrate a last minute winner…buzzing

  • Thought we were dire in the first half but looked a different side in the second. Bruce
    gave them a buck up at the break. High balls are not the ones to score goals off playing Hogan should have got Davis on earlier. What can you say about 3 points – de

  • Wow, what a great result. Johnstone was outstanding, Thor was everywhere when needed, his positional play and discipline was brilliant. To have that quality and individual ability made the difference, and we have that through the forward and midfield line

  • Big respect to Chris Wilder. One of the fairest and most humble interviews heard for a long time. Sheffield were very good too, which makes our win so special. Nowhere near our best.. Dug in. Johnstone superb.. Back four very good.. Thor exceptional and G

  • Great night, great win. Fair play to Sheffield, they could and maybe should have won that. Johnstone superb – again. To think that a year ago he got so much negative press from many fans. Thor has also had his share. Tonight they were the stand out player

  • Great result, but which genius thought it was a good idea to ***** Scottish Cafu off in a promotion run in? Unbelievable, Jeff.

  • Has it really been 20 years since Villa won 5 games in a row. I must be on a 20 year high then. I had a feeling all game we were going to nick a 1-0 win. That was a professional performance. Not pretty and we weren’t the best team overall but we were orga

  • Someone once said we only comment in the stats thread when we are losing. Seems to be plenty of comments today and much smiling today to me!

  • Just noticed your comment Ron Birch, very kind of you, was impressed with Chris Wilders comments after the match as well.
