Sorry TV, we'll really have to agree to disagree, I really think Mings is now miles off what we need. We were so far on top and he gave them a piss easy corner and we went to shit from there. I played centre back for 30 years and when I could play I did, when I needed to punt it, I did. Its nearly every game with him now, time to ditch

WE have become a team of showboaters that’s what happened to Arsenal till they rolled up their sleeves and started to work for a living.
You cannot leave a full back so exposed has Cash was tonite and the defending from certain midfielders for the first was criminal.
This will be either a turning point for the good or just the opposite we still need twelve points to be safe.
I see the Southampton has the one which decides.

I really hope that they're looking at options for a striker, even if just a loan for 6 months. Davis is an absolutely dismal option to bring on, his first touch looked like he too had received a set of juggling balls for Christmas, with the shoes to match.

I'm not on the Mings hate-train like most - but a 7? blimey.

I'm generally on it (hate is very strong) but thought he did the basics a lot better tonight. Not his fault that Luiz in particular kept hiding in front of him so forced to go long

Luiz shit tonight. Hasn't been particularly good this season. Traore had an off game. Centre backs are still soft on corners. Not sure if it's tactical or physical but we don't defend corners or crosses well enough.

Trezeguet or El Ghazi back for next game please. We need the additional work rate.

We can moan about Burnley all we like, but what they did they did well. If say that was Liverpool or Man C coming to VP in the middle of last season, totally dominating the 1st half but we hung in there at 0-1 and kept belief and battled to a victory as Burnley did tonight we would have been full of praise.
It's not harking back to the bad old days, we once again showed we are a side of quality footballers and are in transition to greater things.
Sometimes you just have to take it on the chin.

Luiz had a shit game tonight as well, I'd be bringing in Nakamba for the next game, to give Douggie a kick up the arse.

Mings was ball watching for the winner and let Wood drift off him towards Targett. That was poor.

That run by Grealish was even better than the one v Leeds. Just astonishing - if only he’d stop hitting the final shot straight at the goalkeeper.

And apart from last year, Turf Moor is an absolute graveyard for Villa.

Think part of the problem is that playing on the left, a lot of his chances do come on his left foot, rather than his stronger right. 

Frustrating defeat and three soft goals to concede.  Think there should have been changes when we regained the lead, but not to be.

He was doing the simple things first half, I thought he had learned from previous mistakes.

The lead up to their first goal was criminally bad, first letting it bounce and then attempting to let it roll out, before conceeding the corner.

Awful goalkeeping and defending.

We need another striker, bringing Davis on to "possibly" nick a goal was laughable.
His first touch was laughable. Could be Dean's way of sending a signal to the owners?

We need another 11 points to be certain of staying up.

Burnley are the modern equivalent or late 80s/early 90s Wimbledon, Bolton under Allardyce and Stoke under Pulis. We could never beat any of them either.

Other thanJack I can not think of a player that scored more than 5 for their second half performance.
