Villa Deserved Victory

Villa Deserved Victory

Sam Allardyce has said tonight that Villa simply outclassed Blackburn today as he suffered his first defeat since joining the club.

Speaking to Sky Sports the Blackburn manager said:

'I don't really have any complaints. I don't think we can say that we really deserved anything out of the game. I thought Villa were the better side.

'In the first half we lost to a super, super strike from James Milner. You only have to switch off for a minute against Villa.

'The second half was a little more disappointing than the first. We lost our passing. We never put enough pressure on Villa's back four.

'And finally in the end they got the second goal. There was still four minutes to go and we were going to throw caution to the wind.

'But they popped up with that goal and that finally killed us off, unfortunately. I don't think too much went for us today. We are obviously disappointed.'

The stats certainly show that despite the two nil scoreline Bolton had chances and at least statistically it was a reasonably balanced game. People are saying we were again not at our best, but at those times it's paramount you take your chances when they come along.

That appears to be the main difference in this game, and this season certainly it's the main difference within the squad.

The football may not be as pretty as we expect, but we are taking the chances and securing the points nontheless.

A "good honest (-bunch) lad" He was even more praise worthy about Villa to the BBC. I wonder what the other MOTD cronies will have to say about it? Anyway, if we are lucky, what were Liverpoo today?

We did out class them today without a doubt, they never had a shot worthy of the name . It was a controlled master class by the lads today !
