Hause must be wondering why he's swapped Wolves bench for not even getting on ours. I know it's a squad game but LB is his best chance of a run in the team so if Targett struggling defensively is a recurring theme, I'd want Kourtney to get a chance in a few weeks time.

To be fair, he wasnít actually getting in their team in their last season in the Championship either.

I think he is probably viewed predominantly as a centre back by Dean Smith now anyway. He played his part in our winning streak there last season and has played both cup games in that position. Iím not sure he offers enough going forward to play as a premier league full back either.

Hause offers presence though, particularly in the air. We are very vulnerable from set pieces with our first choice eleven. Wouldn't rule him out seeing game time at left back or cover for Mings.

Neil Taylor was nowhere near good enough for the championship, defensively or attacking. I'm not sure what came over Smith to make him first choice starting this season, the kind of decision Bruce or McLeish might have made and got dogs abuse for. Having Targett's ability on the ball on our left side has made us a much more coherent attacking force.

I know itís very simplistic terms to look at it in, but Brightonís was the first goal we have conceded indirectly from a free kick/corner wasnít it?

Hause  definitely has useful attributes but I donít think they really fit into how Dean Smith wants his fullbacks to play. I donít think itís unrelated that we are unbeaten since Targett and Guilbert were in the staring XI together.

Did well again last night, his overlaps are definitely creating space for Grealish and their link-up play has been a real positive.

He puked last night didn't he? Was he ill or get a punch to the throat or something?

He was like a winger at times last night. Steve Staunton-esque the way he kept getting out onto the wing.

Thought he was a lot better.  Puked right by where I was sitting and made me feel queasy the rest of the game!!  It was projectile sick so guessing illness!!

True but last night, defensively and to my great surprise, he had very little to do. Pre-match I was very concerned he'd be up against Saint-Maxmin. Fortunately Bruce had him up against Freddie who could cope with his speed. As Mr Mullet says, Targett was allowed to get forward throughout the game, possibly because Newcastle were more concerned with Jack playing on the left.

It was an ideal game for Targett but away from home against stronger sides, I'd be tempted to bring in the superior defensive qualities of Taylor. All that said, Targett looked the business last night and seems to finally fitting in.

How this idiot only got a yellow card for this disgraceful tackle is beyond belief.

He should have received a straight red card. Further proof that VAR is a load of shit.

Are you absolutely sure you support Villa mate? Because you seem to fucking moan a lot about us.

It was a poor tackle and I doubt many would have complained about a red for it but your post is just a tad OTT.
