Not wishing to denigrate our goalkeeper, as I think he's looked like the best we've had in a while, but of the last 11 opposition efforts on target, he's had to pick 8 of them out of the net.

Well heíll have Heaton back soon to put pressure on him.

Itís another one of our bad streaks under Dean though.  Four out of five defeats against teams we need to compete with.  Friday starting to look pretty important.
Play well and lose soon becomes play bad and lose.
We go from optimistic to pessimistic.


Or play well, twat Newcastle. Seems more likely.

If the game goes ahead mind.

They'll be forced to put their under 16s out by the sounds of things.

Had to chuckle at report I've just read saying Newcastle want to postpone as Bruce won't have any time to work on tactics at the training ground!

We played really poorly at times and really well. We deserved to take something from that game. Hourihane needs to not complain about being dropped because he was awful. Trezeguet is the one of the most wasteful players I can remember playing for us. 4 defeats in 5 now. Not good at all.

Hourihane isn't Premier League standard I'm afraid, simple as that. His set piece delivery is normally excellent but aside from that he's anonymous and we can't afford to carry passengers.

I thought the ball moved really well through the midfield generally, it was the terrible defending and finishing that let us down.

We did play well tonight but didnít in the previous 3 defeats. The Liverpool and Arsenal performances are masking a really poor run of form



Not really sure how much masking is going on when the two events you refer to involve putting seven goals past the almighty Liverpool and 3 away from home at Arsenal.

Yep. Winning more than we lose this season is masking how poor we are.

I have just watched the highlights of tonights game and i am more angry than ever at the so called offside goal  Only the idiots at Stockley Park could fail to see Ogbonna with his arms around  Watkins .Or is it a case  of they do not want to see it as it would mean saying the referee got it wrong .

Stockley Park...West London Warehouse... Any chance Sexual Ealing can quickly dash back from Heathrow, explaining to the missus that he "forgot some of our things"; promptly indulge in a bit of arson as his last notable act on British soil before escaping to a new life in Mexico as planned? It would make for a great ending to the movie version of H&V.
VAR - for God sake, burn it down.

So frustrating.

What more is there left to say about the soul destroying, utterly joyless farce that is VAR? Football, played in empty stadiums and controlled by some guys in a cupboard somewhere with a sophisticated electronic ruler. Any possible element of spontaneity or joy ruthlessly removed. Perhaps weíll do away with the concept of scoring goals entirely next just to be certain thereís no joy left in the game whatsoever.

The most frustrating Villa game Iíve seen for a while, well, at least since last week. We deserved far more. Shot ourselves in the foot with brain freezes at the start of either half of course but still should be taking something from that one, for the vast majority we controlled it.

I haven't been that frustrated after a game for a long while.
How we didn't win is hard to take after we dominated them for long periods especially in the second half.
After I calmed down and reading some of the other posters I agree that we are light years away from last season.
I'm not worried just annoyed about having 0 points from the last two games.
I think we will win more than we lose this season and think mid-table is where we will end up.
Dougie MOM for me tonight all class.
Jack also excellent.
We really should beat Newcastle on Friday if we play like that.

Besides the two obvious errors, played well.

Deserved more than we got and VAR ref performance is beyond embarrassing (again).

Shouldíve had at least a point from that arguably 3. Missed the 2nd west ham goal, but defending for the first was shit- fast asleep. I had a feeling Watkins would miss the pen- didnít look confident and the delay probably didnít help him, although it didnít look a penalty really to me in the first place. What can you say about theVAR decision? He was fkn level and the ref gave it. How that can be chalked off as a Ďclear and obviousí error after 3 minutes of scrutiny which was at best an inconclusive outcome is beyond my comprehension. They need to either scrap it or sort the muppets out who are administering it. Beyond a joke now.

Fuck West Ham. Horrible to watch, too much fouling.

Thought we deserved at least a point. Mings needs some competition for his place, Hourihane shouldn't start for us, Watkins needs more support up top with him.

I thought VAR was there to overule when an obvious offside was missed not to run the rule over finger tips and big toes.
That said we had more than enough chances to kill the game off, thought Jack was brilliant.
