Seems like a replay of the Newcastle game. No attacking threat again. No pace in MF or the wings. It´s all Villa.

Had moments of decent passing and possession, but just chasing the ball now for the last 15 min, can hear the clock ticking.  Its only a matter of time for Villa.

It's been like the Newcastle game, just with a worse first half performance.  Only Schwarzer has stood out as doing anything good.

Nice play from Ruiz/Berba and Emmanuelson/Berba just then though.  First chance since probably the same point in last week's game :(

Richardson is having a good game, Manolev looks decent enough to make it a game

We need to play way better second half if we want anything of this game.

Looked like a groin injury, about the 10th minute he came off..

Game not really taken off yet. Feel we need to be a bit more adventurous and try and score. Berba coming too deep because he's getting no service.
Emanuelson with a much improved performance and fair play to him. It's interesting that whenever he gets the opportunity he's aiming to make forward central runs, almost like a poacher. Could get a goal from him.

We have no intention of going forward in that first half. One player has the ball and gets No support. Our style of play away is just not worth seeing. Ruiz is not used where it hurts. Berbatov is too deep blah blah blah. Oh well so much for my prediction of a shock win. We will be lucky to see another chance go our way. Until we fall behind then we will.

We have at least got to give it a bit of a go . Urby & Manolev show no idea about driving forward. Ruiz cant do everything on his own. Berba is isolated.

Urby showed what he can do when he gets out wide. We need to stretch the game width-wise and we might create more clear-cut chances.

I think Urby has been trying to drive forwards, and looks the most likely to, it just hasn't always been coming off.  Ruiz has been woeful though, and I'm usually a big fan - pushed off the ball all he time, easy passes misplaced, impossible passes attempted.
