Villa's Man Of The Match v Liverpool

Villa's Man Of The Match v Liverpool

Vital Villa, in a poll suggested by Spanked? Not Us (aka Vital Villan) asked for your man of the match predictions against Liverpool.

The clear winner was the much maligned Nigel Hokey-Cokey with 64%

Martin Laursen was next with 11%. Must admit, although I think NRC was the man of the match, Laursen was that far behind him!

That left:

Petrov (9%)
Friedel (7%)
Davies (6%)
Barry (2%)
Milner (1%)
A Young (0%)
Carew (0%)
Agbonlahor (0%)
Gardner (0%)
Shorey (0%)
L Young (0%)

Great energy and some nice tackles and runs etc BUT where does he fit into the team. Who will we drop for him. Surely not Petrov who is playing his best football for years and definitelly not GB. So does this mean he will play instead of Milner or our specialized right back. No and I bloody well hope not after the wait for them. If we play 5 across the middle big John will be on his own ( which he was on Sunday due to Gabby's absence.) Rooney is the same, is he a forward or a midfielder???? Back to Nige, a couple of times he was given the ball by Curtis and just passed the ball back to Friedel from the halfway line. Can understand if he was under pressure but we all saw Liverpool were happy to sit back and play on the counter attack and he had all the time in the world to turn.

Glad to see him get this vote. I think he has been much better than he has been given credit for but agree with Villan444 - I'm not sure where he is going to fit in. For me Barry has had his role changed to a Sidwell type role. If Sidwell is going to play and Barry too, where does NRC fit in? Unless Barry goes to lb, but what a waste then. So many good players now, but no decent striker.

Laursen did well but how reo or petrov didn`t get motm on the day was beyond me,That was reo-cokers best game in a villa shirt,Maybe he is turning into a good right winger.The team will and should stay as it id for now,The likes of sidwell and milner have to earn their place.

Reo did play very well defensively but I'm with 444; he does pass it back or sideways a lot. Right at the end when we were chasing the game he passed it all the way back to Friedel much to the irritation of most of the crowd. It's almost as if he isn't confident enough in his own ability to take people on yet when he does - like in his mazey run down the right on Sunday and a couple of times against Citeh - he's shown he can do it. He'll never be an Ashley Young or a James Milner but he does bring something to the team. I'm just not sure where he fits now though...

Good call Gruck. He can't shoot but at least he looks interested unlike Gabby who is more interested on starting up a five-a-side team (all with different mothers) of his offspring.

Great perfromance by NRC. Like a few others have already said, I don't quite know where he fits in to the team - he's definately not a winger, take note MON - but at least when he does play he plays with his heart on his sleeve and gives his all and then some to the cause.

The much maligned NRC turned in a superb performance, arguably his best showing in a Villa shirt, and he certainly gave MON a poser for the Tottenham game. Competition for places is keeping the lads fully on their toes, and that of course is how it should be.
