VAR reversing our penalty decision was correct but what fucks me off about it is how long they took scrutinising over it from every angle before reversing it compared to how quick the Man Utd one was given the other night for an almost identical incident, it is a fucking farce.

Was their handball even looked at? Also, I thought five minutes added on was a bit much.

I think itís the additional substitutions causing the extra added in times, their must half a dozen in the second half yesterday.

Substitutions plus the ridiculous drinks breaks.

Otherwise known as the advertisement breaks of the future 🤔

Good point that, I hadnt thought of that.

Yep, two things.  Apparently the TV companies are pressing for the "water breaks" to be incorporated fully from now on so they can show adverts.  Just like in American football.
The other things was, when their "goal" went in my first words were "where the f**k was Reina?" When they showed it again it was obvious that he had been taken out by Ayew and if the goal had been allowed it would have been a trevesty.

Very pleased over all but so sad to see what's happened to Benteke. Nothing to do with the red card but his performance.
So sad.

Actually thought he looked pretty sharp during the first half, but then fafed away as the game went on.  Still looked much more of a threat than Samatta and Davis though.

Amused by the amount of posts saying how shite Palace were. That seems to happen a lot the rare times we actually win - people slagging off the quality or lack thereof in the opposition. There was very little between the teams in the first half, we stepped up a gear for fifteen minutes in the second half which was enough to get us the insurance goal and then Palace had the better of the late chances. But it was a hard-earned win against a side who are, in the wider context, better than us and not in urgent need of points. No need to decry them as the new Blosers.

I would have felt aggrieved if that handball for their "goal" had been given against us. Surprised though that no one has mentioned a possible foul by Ayew on Reina as the free kick comes in. Ayew clearly nudges Reina - to the extent that it made Reina fall to the ground I'm not sure, only he knows that but by falling to the ground and giving Palace an unguarded goal, it's more likely that it was a foul. Watching the game, when the VAR check came up, I presumed it was for that.

Not meaning to sound clever after the event, but I thought exactly the same about Ayew fouling Reina and, like you, I assumed the VAR was for that.
Either the commentary or the post-match analysis, I forget which, said that had handball not been given they'd have looked at the Reina incident next.  I presumed that the TV can hear the dialogue with Stockley Park.

Shaved my beard off.

Villa won.
A chest and two bollocks should see us safe.

Surely the bollocks are one game?  They are a package that cannot be separated.  Therefore, I'd like to propose that Jon shaves his arse crack if we pull this off?  In fact, I will join him in shaving my own bottom if we avoid relegation. I promise.

Letís not go there again please, some of us remain traumatised by ĎThe Shaving Threadí & Dan The Pool Man to this day.

Jesus, missed that at the time.  I had to go and look for it though, didn't I.  Pass the mind bleach.

Never really been his biggest fan, but Hourihane looked OK on Sunday in a more advanced role where he doesn't have to get involved in the defensive stuff as much.  He links up well at times with Grealish when Jack is out on the left.

Me too, hadn't had a shave since before Easter and got rid of the lot yesterday, not long before kick off.

I didn't watch, took the kids to play frisbee (sorry, flying disc thingy) in the park and have an ice cream instead.

Am I allowed to watch our next match?

I'm pleased with the performance we need to play like that for the last three games.

I see that Citeh have been admitted back into the Chumps League. So, 5th place this season looks like we are going to have to settle for Europa League instead!!

No. Everyone must do exactly what they did before. I dressed Aston-Lee in his Villa kit for the first time this year when there has been a match on.

Did some hedge cutting when notification of a Palace goal came through on my phone. Then notification it had been ruled out. Sat on the bench looking aimlessly into the garden pond for the rest of the first half. Was in the toilet when we scored the first. Made a sandwich at half time to celebrate.  I was balancing on steps very precariously when the buzzer notification came up on my phone for another goal. Had to get back on Terra firma to check who it was.  Returned to my work with renewed vigour.

So it's you pair of scruffy bastards fault we're in this position? Call yourself Villa fans.

And to think I did my back, sack and crack all for nothing.
