We actually played pretty well and should have won by more. Up to 5th

Good result we needed to bounce back and we did. How did Onomah do?

Fair play to Bruce. There was a definite tactical plan to press and force errors high up the pitch. The decision to drop Davis looked a good one and JK looked much sharper. Onwards and upwards.

31% possession? Really? Wankers. ;-)

Good to see us trying to play higher up the pitch.
We hung on but just about deserved it.

We won, but taking our best players off so early? Recipe for disaster. Can tell Bruce is used to managing little shit teams.

That was a long last half an hour.

Well done for holding on Villa.

Still think we should be playing more on that front foot at home, though.

Though a win is a win, and finally into the top 6.

Just looked at the table, it appears we are "there or thereabouts"

It's a good result but I still maintain that better retention of the ball would make those latter stages a lot more comfortable.

Good win. If we'd played that way against Wolves we would have given them a proper game. Given Bruce's style, he got the tactics right today.
