When Zat Knight scored in injury time Villa had 4 men in the box and 1 on the edge. We had 3 inside and 1 outside. Now read that again. 2 mins in to injury time we are leading a game which we could have lost after half an hour and we are outnumbered in our own penalty area, unbelievable! This is not about individual errors, it is basic schoolboy defending by the team as a whole. If the boot was on the other foot, we would see 2 banks of 4 lined up in front of their area defending… Read more »

Good analysis iJemz.

Portsmouth preview coming later this afternoon. 🙂

gunna, toure had malaria in the summer. He has been poor at best since the acn, so its not because of the malaria.

We wont win the league, lucky to get 4th and we probably wont buy during the transfer window because Wenger has officially lost it.

Watching the match was agonizing. The young villa squad looked ready to surrender yesterday. Their unrewarded dominance and our 2-0 lead seemed to have shaken their resolve. Just as that doubt was permeating Villa and Villa Park, the trojan horse strikes again! Billy G must go. Shocking and unnecessary challenge on the edge of the penalty area. This guy cannot be trusted. His motivations are questionable and his play is disasterous. He is grenade number 10 for the Arsenal. Ready to detonate at anytime. Needless to say, after the Barry conversion, Villa had visions of the spuds comeback dancing in… Read more »
