I hope all the noses enjoyed the highlights of our game and Alan Shearer's positive analysis of Jack Grealish.  ;)

I've just watched us on motd.
How come they've only just realised how good Jack is?
Anyone with any sense could see he's a top, top player.

And he's ours.

Controversial VAR decision on disallowed goal not analysed by Shearer and Co. Really surprised at that! Terrible decision needed to be highlighted.
Jack got plenty of plaudits though. He was terrific today in front of Southgate.

Bloody hell that was a terrible decision for their free kick. Glad they didn't mention it afterwards and concentrated on how good Jack was and is.

They focussed on the goals but focussing on the goals it all comes down to Jack Grealish. What a game he had. So glad he stayed with us when he could have left while we were still a championship side.

Tottenham's legendary master negotiator Daniel Levy failed to sign him despite the fact we were skint and in danger of going bust at the time.

Is it me or are we generally getting more love in the media since we came back up. I guess were a loveable plucky attacking promoted team instead of a horrible dysfunctional team overdue for relegation.

True, but I think its more because we bring excitement. Our matches are not dull.

Lineker seems to be fond of us.I think that Var wasn't analysed because it didn't alter the result and  I think that Motd might have a time limit on highlights.Also it enabled them to focus on Jack who was just incredible.

To be fair there's been quite a good reason they haven't mentioned him in the last three years.

Pretty much, think everyone was sick of us just doing nothing but losing in the bleak Lambert years.

Now we're playing good football and having more marketable players in the media.

Was surprised we were first (isn't their a Villa fan who's their editor?) as thought the ongoing Spurs crisis would take top bill (was amazed they were near the end).

Some stats on the beeb show there has been more shots on goal by both us and the opposition combined then any other teams. Not a totally good thing though really.

Quote
Aston Villa's Premier League games this season have seen a combined 293 shots (131 attempted, 162 faced), more than any other side, with today's game seeing 44 (24 attempted, 20 faced), the most in a single Premier League fixture since Manchester United v Burnley in October 2016 (45).

It was 43 in the Norwich match.

Yep. Perhaps there was never a great anti-Villa media conspiracy and that we were just as rancid to everyone else as we all realised we were ourselves?
