Like the rotation and like the result. I'm looking forward to the report and then a couple of signings come Friday deadline. UTV.

Good Result. Patience is all we need.
Good result, was expecting the worst. UTV
Highlight of the game was the 3rd goal !!
Just back from the game Ireland was the star man by along way. The new signings all looked good. One worry that was clear there was no width on both sides. No wingers no player that could get to the bye line to out a cross in. Herd was lost on the right side midfield. Delph was poor. Still new a winger .
Ireland should start every game, was gob smacked he didn't start against Everton. Nice to see the stats in our favour with a win, good possession and shots on target. Now for some signings and a good performance at Newcastle. UTV In Lambert we trust
Must find a system to accommodate Ireland, Different class,,Really like the look of Holman as well,,
Went to the match. Agree Ireland was MotM, Baker was very good as well imo, Burke looked very good in the 15 mins he got. Build up to the 3rd goal was beautiful. We had another 2 disallowed for offside as well, including Ireland lobbing the keeper from about 20 yards while stretching and falling over.
Regardless of opposition, Ireland showed touches an awareness that no one else in our squad has and could be a real asset for us this year...He showed glimpses last year in a real negative and uninspriring set up and we really need Lambert to get this guy firing...He can be a very good link man for us whether that's for bent or midfielders joining in especially as we do not have a great deal of width...I would play him in a 3 with KEA and Herd as I think Herd is limited but will add some much needed bite in the middle...Holman impressed me in the short time he was on and is a useful addition to the squad...Nice to see Bent on the scoresheet!
I said this many times last season - Stephen Ireland should be captain. End of. We should be building our entire team around him. He is utter class and now seems to have sorted his head out. I get a bit *****ed off with the Darren Bent haters. Get the ball to him in the box and he WILL score. He made his goal look easy but it wasn't. Lack of width is frustrating. Wingers wingers wingers. We need wingers to get the ball into the box to Bent. We had the ball in the net 5 times tonight. Would love to see replays of the disallowed goals. Patience fellow Villans. Excited to see who we sign before Friday. UTV!
Oh and I was impressed with Banan's tackling tonight. He was like a little terrier snapping at the heels of everyone. I know it was 'only' Tranmere but it was definitely a better performance from BB tonight.
Nathan Baker was absolutely outstanding. MOTM by a mile. Ireland played some lovely cultured football without finding a killer ball which remains a problem.
Went tonight, it was a good bunch of lads. As other say Ireland was good as was Baker and Bannan put in a shift. Bent was quite poor but did his job and got on the score sheet. I think in the 20+ years of me going to VP 15,000 is the lowest attendance I have seen. Bad times
I was too tired to stop up for the match. So I've got up this morning to a 3-0 win! Hurray! Disappointed with the attendance. I know it was only a cup match but the team and PL needs all the backing we can give them.
Pride of Lions
Ireland ran the show tonight, made so many nice little flicks and even though his goal was offside he took it very well! man of the match by a mile. Holman impressed when he come on as well, very direct
Enjoyed the game, shame about the 15K turn out, put 2nd round against Tranmere, not really surprised. I thought Lichaj and Herd had a poor game, but Holman and Burke looked really sharp when they came on and it's nice to see Ireland looking interested for a change! Bannan tried hard again, but is at best a Championship player, although his corners were pretty good. Couple more new faces before the end of the deadline and I think we'll be ok; Lambert has some building to do though.
How was Enda Stevens? Or did he just have a quite match?
