We're a team capable of banging in 11 and getting 9 points against the likes of Liverpool, Leicester and Arsenal.

We're also capable of giving up 9 and getting 0 points against the likes of Southampton, Leeds and Brighton.

I can see why the penalty wasn’t given, the point is though that we were failing in too many aspects of our game to make that a certain win.
You can not give the opposition 2 goals and expect to win too many games.

Got what we deserved frankly. Barkley going off knocked the stuffing out of us, but too many players were well below par. I wouldn't give any of them over a 5.5. Mings needs to fuck off to the reserves and re-learn the basics - has the look of someone believing his own press.. Beating Liverpool and Arsenal is all very well, but you have to get something from teams like this at home or you're gonna be in trouble sooner or later.

Love him as I do this is Deans main weakness.  He would prefer to lose a game 10-9 than be pragmatic and get a result by another tactic.

For all our huff and puff, their goalie barely made a save.
Crap corners, crap crosses. Crap defending and crap referee.

Things conspired against us today.  International players looked knackered, Barkley hamstrung in 1st min, Trez having a barn door day and to top it all off screwed over by VAR.  the good news is that last season they looked better than us, today they didn’t. We go on...

Reasonable going forward although not enough movement again. The defence is a car crash waiting to happen. Was Oliver the ref who didn't give the ghost goal?

The penalty decision was a farce but that shouldn't cover up our inadequacies. We continue to be easy to play against at home and if we are going to have to score 3 to win a game then we have no chance.

Thought we were off throughout the team. Even with that though we still looked lively going forward.

Consecutive home defeats against Leeds, Southampton and Brighton.....Not good enough.

We weren't good enough today. Some tired performances, some shit performances, some careless performances and that contributes to losing the game.
As for the pen, you won't see a reversal like that against any of the "top" sides. Not a hope in hell.

Referee going on the theory that if the defender gets a touch on the ball it can't be a foul, which is nonsense.

Typical Villa!

Stuff Arsenal at the Emirates and then lose at home to Brighton.

Grrr.
