Brilliant equaliser by Ollie, fortunate point but we take it and move on. Lots of players running on empty and a couple of others running out of chances. Thought Emery had a very poor day with team selection and timing of subs too.

Martinez 8 - few brilliant saves
Konsa 3 - one brilliant tackle but proven once again that he cannot play at right back.
Carlos 2 - pub league stuff for their first and to be honest doesn't seem PL standard
Torres 5 - struggled with Solanke throughout and very poor for their second. Decent with ball
Digne 5 - a bit meh really and under pressure for his spot now
Luiz 6 - started like a boss but definitely gassed at end. Thought he could have done better for their second and missed a sitter in first half
Tielemans 4 - can't play in a two, so weak in contests and we missed Kamara terribly
McGinn 4 - running very flat, not helped by a different position every game but no surprise to see him hooked early
Bailey 7 - brilliant goal, laid one on a plate for Luiz, unlucky to be replaced
Watkins 7 - quiet throughout until his outstanding equaliser, unbelievable header
Zaniolo 2 - chance in early minutes, self belief evaporated soon after. Might not play too much more for us

Ramsey 5 - disappointing really, Duran 5 - one deflected shot and little else, Cash 7 - gave us improved balance immediately, Diaby 7 - brilliant assist late on, Moreno 6 - one decent block, might get in now.
Emery 3 - terrible team selection with Konsa at RB being torn apart in first half. Faith in Carlos badly misplaced yet again. Waiting until.73min to bring Cash in on right beggared belief.

I usually disagree with you as I think your scores area but harsh but Tielemans aside I’d have him at a 5.5 that pretty much sums it up for me.

Bournemouth have some good pacey attacking players that we struggled to contain .  Although one shouldn't have been on the pitch and he cleared one off their  line may I add

We looked a bit imbalanced , flat and tired but maybe that is part of having European Football

I would like to apologise to the world for starting a post-match thread before the final whistle. I now realise that this was a grave error and shows disrespect for women, former slaves, trans and gays, union members, the 35,000 people in the queue for season tickets and balti pies.

The person you should be apologising to Darren is yourself, because that's who you've let down most.

And there’s no golden muppet thread to slag you off on anymore BE.

I'm sure the "Ever get the impression you're deeply unpopular?" thread will suffice.

Comparing results for league games so far and allowing for the promoted/relegated clubs I think we are 3 points ahead of the comparable games from last season. Mostly down to beating West Ham at home. The point lost at Liverpool is made up by the one gained at Wolves and the point lost at Forest is cancelled out by the one gained today.

Your misdemeanour is a casual error and we know the French are prone to this, what with Suez and all that kerfuffle, but your apology is Universally acclaimed.... I believe, not that I am in charge of the universe.

Even so, I still think the powers that be should stand him down for the next Post-Match thread.

Well I had a good day having paid for the hospitality today as did quite a few other Villa fans. It is a very friendly club.

I think we were a bit fortunate today. Watkins saved us but he had been anonymous up until
then. Martínez was outstanding.

It is hard playing with a core team in so many games and we struggled with Bournemouth's energy and commitment, although they fouled quite a lot. Tavernier and Semenyo looked very good today.

If having a goal disallowed for a narrow (albeit correct) offside, hitting the post and having a shot cleared off the line by a player who should have received 3 yellow cards in the first half is fortunate then maybe we were. But it’s not my definition of fortunate.

This team just keep going. Not at our best but we just don’t give in and that just shows you how good we now are. Not only can we play but we can fight and every one of them give everything.
Emery has to mix it up, it’s physical impossible to play the same team and get results playing every few days. I don’t like Konsa at right back but that’s all we’ve got for now if we need to rest players.
A decent enough away point and now 2 huge home games to come.

Not great, not a disaster. Need to win one of the next two.

That was my thoughts before today...4 points from the next 3 games is imparative if they want top 4.

I have been saying for some time I do fancy us to get somethig from Arsenal.

Beginning to remind me of the MON era, Not convincing away from home but picking up points.
UE, does need to sort the away set up but I think part of it is squad rotation and we have a few that are not up to it.

Indeed. Rotation I fully understand the need but his complete change of set up is mind boggling. It's never really looked like working yet he persists with it away from home and in Europe. Maybe a right back next month with put a stop to it as we look half the team when he does it and he almost always has to abandon it at some point during the game.

Positives? Great goals from Bailey and Watkins, Emi brilliant and keeping us in the game, JJ looking comfortable and hopefully closer to 90 minutes, Alex the same and a point gained which on 89 minutes I thought beyond us. We do seem to have a wonderful habit of punishing teams very late in games.
