We are amazing.  I just watched the highlights, missed the game because we were doing an online performance thing for our mate's 50th.  In the 3 minutes there was not one Newcastle effort shown.  Our defence is ticking I don't care what any of you may think of Mings, he is the organiser and the beating heart of that back 4.  Did anybody read the Guardian article about Konsa?  He rates Tyrone so highly abd credits him and Terry as the major factors in his continuing improvement.

The mids get there game on, Luiz is unfussy and holds the the rest in shape, McGinn runs all day long....

Traore may not track back as much as we like but he adds another dimension going forward and maybe we should accept his frailties and adapt to them?

This team is, in terms of ability, probably the best I have seen.  I am so proud to be a Villa fan at this time.  We are exemplary.

It was a 2-0 thrashing! Delighted with how we play, our togetherness, our skill!

Our team are currently one of the most entertaining teams to watch in the country. Talented players all over the pitch who are growing match by match and a manager and coaches that want to win in an entertaining way, wow arenít we lucky

I never noticed this until I have just this on Twitter. All eleven Newcastle players were in the box when Jack found Traorť.

I completely agree with the decision to sub Jack.  The game was finished - result not in doubt - a few minutes left to play and obviously tiredness beginning to creep in.  Jack had just had a little bit of "afters" with Shelvey and it only needed him to make a challenge that was a fraction late or something similar and it would be a yellow card and out of the Burnley match. Far better to upset him and bring him off and be available for Turf Moor than to be sitting in the stands for 90 minutes that night.
Hadnít really thought of that, but think you have nailed why they took him off. Just need to get him and Targett through the next two games without a booking and the slate is wiped clean I think.
In terms of goalies, Iíve seen Rimmer albeit sparingly in the early 80s, through Spink, Poole, Butler, Bozzie, Sorensen, Carson, James, Friedal, Guzan, Given, Collini, Nyland, the fat sub fella, Steer, Heaton, thereís probably a few Iíve missed.
Not fair to judge them all to the same criteria as some werenít there long enough, or like Heaton got badly injured. Bozzie was always my favourite, but as mad as it sounds, only 17 games in, Martinez is fast becoming my favourite ever villa keeper. He just never looks like heís  not going to catch a cross, his long range passing is mostly sublime, he also seems to be a key character in the dressing room and seems to love playing for us.
Martinez has everything. But the standout features for me are his positional sense and his ball control and distribution. He can pass a ball way better than some of the outfield players weíve had in the recent past. Itís almost like having a sweeper as an extra player. I think it was the City game where he came charging out and headed the ball away and he came out and cleared against Newcastle at least once. This puts him ahead of Bossie in my view.

Cruised to a win , 2nd half we over played as it was so easy.

Marv did very well but thats been a recurring theme , any player coming in Hause,AEG have all done well.In Jack ,Bert,AEG and Trez we have 4 players who can all score and create it gives us alot of options going forward.

Konsa tough not that tested was a rock , if Mings is England quality he is as well
Southgate could do a lot worse than pick the entire Villa back 4 on their current form.

The media would never allow that!

If you discount the two dodgy penalties and the Rule 11 goal, thatís one genuine goal in two games against City and Utd. Itís not like we were lucky it wasnít a lot more. Which it wouldíve been in previous seasons.
