We've been the better side, i'm not having we were poor. We can be better though which should have Derby worried.

No I agree, think we were ok but a bit ponderous, Jack in particular. We need to sharpen up.

Yeah good word. Derby have looked quite nervous.

Just the better side and an added bit of quality from the cross gives us the edge. If we are poor then Derby are more so. If the second half is just as contained we will win, if they open up then our playmakers get more space.

We are 45 minutes from promotion. This next 45 is the difference between spending all summer worrying about FFP and who will replace most of our best players and testing the depths of our owners pockets. This is defining, please don't fuck it up Villa, everything we've come through the last 3 months in particular. I believe in them and their strength of character and ability.

Agreed

Abrahams form is a worry if he was at his best he would destroy them.

Wouldn't say Derby have been the better side, pretty even, first 15 of the next half all important, feels like Derby are growing into this, we have to press this home, next 45 is our 45...

An early Abraham goal at the start of the second half and we can Man City - Watford the rest of the second half.

I really don't fancy a last ten minutes at 1-0

Just said the same. Last ten at 1-0 could be fucking excruciating.

Not poor. Just a bit average but the better of the two teams

we have been below par

but Jack I think should have scored , the airshot from axel and Tammy was close we could easy be 2 up so today is the best chance now to get out of this division.   

we can go for this , play some footy and kill em 3 0 .

Before the goal I thought Derby would be pleased with the first 45 and Villa disappointed and looking to do better.

Goals change games though. Composure and we can see this out by 2 or 3 goals.
