Rome wasnít built in a day.
But, Hogan was the wrong sub.
Taylor isnít very good.
Over to you Mr Smith.   Any Mr Terry sort the defence.

Not read the thread yet. Been out tonight and just finished watching as live.

Bloody hell. Shows the new coaches haven't had enough time yet. There were some promising signs of trying to play a passing game, just a shame they are starting from the back with players who havenít the confidence.

Nyland. FFS
Hutton. Erm
Tuanzebe. Looking good.
Chester. Too many mistakes at the moment.
Taylor. Not helped much but just can't control or pass a football right now.
Whelan.
Hourihane. Tries to hard.
Albert. Average.
Elmo. Crossing not good enough.
Grealish. Won plenty of free kicks.
Abraham. Looks good to me,

Hogan. Wrong system for him. Or he's wrong for the system.
ElGhazi. Erm. Tries hard but he plays like me; his body can't do what his brain tells it to.
Kodjia.  Not enough time.

Shame we've only 2 days until QPR, another day of training lost and we need it.

Nyland 5 : failure in commanding area at set pieces. Was rarely tested .
Wasteful in long range kicking out and pass backs when ever kicking long.

Tuanzebe 7.5 : made tackles , clearances and interceptions and was best of the defence.  90 % passing rate. Struggled again with some high balls and aerial duels but has good recovery pace.

Chester 6: scored goal made decent clearances but was slow to block the ball for the Norwich winning goal.

Hutton 5 : poor position play and defending in conceding goals
Did few Sprint runs and working a tandem with elmohamedys but tired and offered little in moving ball forward though did some good moves with and without ball in Norwich half in first 40 mins

Taylor 4: giving away fouls and being booked
Being dispossessed on ball.
1 threatening cross and failure to deliver anything else attacking wise accurately.
Gave away ball most with attempts at long balls . Played most long balls and not many reacted a villa player.

Whelan 7: passing accuracy at 90% good in what he did . Lacked agression but did do occasional press.
Was the better of the 2 Irish midfield.
2nd most touches on the ball in villa shirt . Need someone more dynamic in play but does a job away from home.

Hourihane 5.5:
Assisting goal with good contribution in corner delivery
Played some most accurate  crosses 3/5.
Yet over hit set pieces and lacked accuracy in shooting off target with 2 efforts .
Lack of energy  in pressing and attempts at playing forward passing.
Losing possession
Having too many bad touches and unforced errors when on the ball.
Attempted 1 forward thru ball which failed.

Grealish 6: winning free kicks around the box and drawing fouls but  losing possession and some poor passing.

Adomah 6 : 4 crosses only 1 accurate
22 touches, passes ball 7 times, 2 shots both off target. Was getting more into thing before injury

Elmohamedys 5.5 : Started well pressed forward and delivered a decent cross but faded a lot second half  and was lacking in crossing and lost ball both when in possession and often when he tired to play passes  .
1 accurate cross from 7 .

Abrahams 6: giving ball away with continued worst passing  rate at 63%
Pressed but struggle to be totally immerse in play.
Hit post with a chance
Injured being kicked in head.

Hogan 3: had 4 touches in 40 minutes

Kodjia 4.5: 6 touches 1 foul

El Ghazhi5: 1 blocked shot , 1 great delivery which could have result in a goal had Kodija or Abrahams been where hogan was.

Dean has had hardly a week to sort the ingrained shit basket left in his lap.

Still only 3 points off top 6 remarkably which is one positive to desperately cling onto...
Yes that's quite right ..
Though after other matches on Wednesday evening could be 4 or 5.bristol and forest to play their matches...

See how goes but the play off places are certainly attainable. Good to remain positive

Just got back.

I cannot fathom what Chester was doing for the goal.

Thought it was a tight and poor quality game. Full backs poor, midfield not the legs or drive and two injuries in quick succession to our best performers ruined cohesion.

Onto Friday!

A total shambles - we are a  banana republic of a side and I wouldn't miss one single player from the senior squad that actually belongs to us. Fuck knows what Dean does in January as the squad is already bloated beyond a month old road kill badger. I suspect he's going to limit expenditure to the absolute essentials simply to keep us in the league. OPR will beat us comfortably on last night's performance, and the thought of Small Heath loitering just outside the top six makes it even worse. Hats off to all those with better belief and optimism, but any talk of a play off place is bollocks in my humble opinion. I don't usually like conspiracy theories but I'm beginning to think Bruce's recruitment policy was a very deliberate act of sabotage.

I think some people are going way overboard on how bad that was

Our keeper hardly had a save to make. He still conceded two because he's not very good

We could easily have been two up and we lost two attackers in a minute against the in form team in the league

Various problems and lots to work on. But lots to work with too

Brentford have a very good goalkeeper in Daniel Bentley and a very good centre half in Chris Mepham. Just sayin'.

Yes we could have been two goals up, but we were not. We need to take our chances.

Scrappy game but I though until the injuries we were slightly the better side. Having 2 go off in quick succession disrupted us and, as Smith said, if Abraham had been on the pitch for the corner for their equaliser he would be on the front post and likely headed it away.

I doubt that the manager has had time yet to properly assess the full squad but after Friday the schedule is a bit less hectic which will hopefully give him more opportunity.

People really do go over the top on here when we lose. Yes some performances werenít great but we all know where we are short (left back, centre half and keeper is poor). Norwich are on a roll so was always going to be a tough game. Injuries changed the game and we could have easily drew. Axel was superb and is going to be done player. Jack needs a rest though.

Axle WAS good, but he still ducks under the ball and did so for their first goal. Elmo and Hutton badly exposed for their winner but Chester, what were you doing?  If we could sign Axel, I'd bring in another centre back and he'd be the longer term replacement for Chester. Injuries did us last night unfortunately and Smith needs coaching time with them all.
