Superb strike from Jack, can't be many better midfielders in the country at the moment, the man's absolute class. Need 6 points from next 2 games.

Atrocious first 45, followed by a much improved second. Magnificent finish from JG - who was the best player on the park (again). Mings was quality & a great save by Reina to ensure a point. All in all, 2 sides who would struggle to be at the sharp end in the Championship.

Oh, and Maupay is a laughable bell. I hope a responsible adult gives him a smacked bottom & sends him to bed early.

Best English midfielder by a distance
Southgate sees him competing with Sterling and Rashford but I think Grealish should be walking into that England national team like he walk into Liverpool midfield.

Super effort by him for the goal.
Way he connected and ability to hit the net.
Just wow . You are really Super, Jack!

Absolutely awful until we played an actual striker up front at which point the game became more stretched and we were more of an attacking influence.

Targett and particularly Drinkwater were appalling in the first half. Luiz looked lively when he came on and what can you say about Jack? The definition of a talisman and I dread to think where we’d be without him. Must must must win on Tuesday. UTV

Highlights

Never saw the angle behind the goal but surely Reina should be saving that shot?

Awful games, decent point.

We need a couple of wins from our next 4/5 or it's curtains for us.

I don't know.  I think it was basically a very good strike from a very tight angle.

Second half we were the architects of our own down fall. Beifhton picked up on our loose ends as we were far too easy in giving the ball away.

They didn't create much but there was 3 scrambles and the goal inevitable came from Hause cocking up.

There was no out ball and the wing backs were tucked too deep.

Second half, much improved. We closed them and forced them into errors. Targett and Guilbert occupied their full backs and credit to Vas, he was a pest.

Lovely ball from Dougie and a lovely finish from Grealish, a point well deserved. Reina made one brilliant save, Drinkwater got more to grips second half. Generally a lot better.

I would have settled for a point before the game.

Two points, park and ride is shite and what's the point of a pack of pyro dogs that cannot sniff out pyro?

Was dubious about signing Reina, but can see from today the difference he can make.  Confident, assured and not frightened to give his defenders(including Mings) massive bollockings

Vassilev made us better because he actually got us up the pitch.

He should start on Tuesday with Jack in the middle.

A decent point given the performance. We desperately need a centre forward to help the cohesion and balance of the team but it does worry me that our recruitment policy seems to be signing a lot of players with no experience in England (Wesley, Trez, Luiz, Engels, Guilbert, Nakamba) and this new striker will take a while settling in to the pace of the game. We did this in the summer and its not worked out well, we need results now.

As for our passing we must have the worst stats for giving the ball away by some distance, Targett is probably the worst of the lot mind you he has a lot of competition for that honour.

Maupay is a niggly little  shit shouldn't have been on the pitch at the end.

....or preferably had just played the 90 minutes in a Villa shirt. ;)

A genuine striker should definitely start.

He's not a striker, he's an attacking midfielder.
