Happy Fans Reaction To Newcastle Away Draw

Happy reactions from fans following the 1-1 v Newcastle, bit different to the last fans reaction in PL (v Everton!)

Fair result, MUCH better than our 'performance' v Everton. Gives them something to build on. Ben Arfa's goal was a beauty, but we gave him way too much space. Few decent chances went begging for both sides as well. All in all, I'd have taken that before the game.
The Fear

Yep, if someone said to me 1-1 before the match, I'd of snatched his hand off. Even though we were 1-0 up, I'm happy with the draw. Not happy with all the yellow cards and fouls.
Pride of Lions

I'll take it after the game, Fear.

what a performance from every villa player on that park today
Villa365247



very pleased with the effort by the lads today, a tough season ahead though. i just hope the signings ease the pressure off the squad
zaijianforth



So so many plusses from today! First point, away from home, top effort, good team work, gabby back and looking sharp. We also haven't seen anything from our new boys yet, Benteke and Bennett especially!
AHAVFC

We played excellently today. Though, it was a little disappointing that we didn't get all 3 points, if you would have asked us if we would have taken a point before the match, nearly all of us would have snapped at it. Our defense was superb and Guzan took his chance wholeheartedly. We even looked a lot more threatening in the final third of the pitch for once! This was the performance we needed to kickstart the season. Bring on Swansea!
KMitch

Well to say we played away at Newcastle how many clear chances did they have really? Bent and Ireland could have scored for us, I'm really happy as I'm disappointed we did not win that's what I'm pleased about lol
ClivetheVillan

Yep, good performance at a place we don't normally do well at. Something to build on. Get Benteke playing next weekend so we can get some of the chances into the net.
Pride of Lions

like watching a different team
monsters

That was 1 million percent better ! Better football, better organisation , better application - just better better better. Weird really after I thought we'd get a pummelling that I am disappointed we didn't win - I think we deserved it. MUST follow this up with 3 points against Swansea.
holtelower

Well pleased with that,much to be happy about.
mc parland

bloody enjoyed that game! proud to be a Villan again. Given is going to find it really hard to come back in the first team. Guzan ftw
jaspervilla

Much better, but plenty of work still to do. Should've been 3 points though.
mike_field

I'd have taken that - 1 point and a much improved performance
Cheshire Villan

well fought Villa, a vast improvement on last season
Fulford

Much better than last week. If we keep improving we will be fine. Loving the fact that Lambert is making the players go over to the away fans. Well done lads.
neilh111

A great result, not one I'd thought we'd see for sure. Well done Lads!
Charizma

Good point in the end but we are so weak in Midfield when the legs start to go. We'd have all settled for this prior to the game but still disappointed not to win it
Villan57

Gabby got into some good positions, Vlaar looked good, Ireland linked up well, Holman worked his bollocks off, Guzan must keep his place!....a good point at a tough place to go!
v1ll4f4n

Well done Villa, battling performance with glimpses of quality. Happy with that.
jake findlay

Still can't see where the goals are going to come from. Don't like this new hard working Darren Bent. I want him in the box poking in goals from 2 yards. Long hard season ahead.
DeanoVilla

Good point but disappointed we couldn't get 3...Would of loved to bag our first win today. Massive improvement but still lots to do, but yeah like I said it was a lot better than our first 2 games and at least we have a point on the board. Looking at the Swansea game now, they are due a loss!! A lot better Defensively and attack today but still lacking that killed ball and finish but remember we have Benteke coming in and Agbonlahor back.
P.Avfc

Fantastic all around effort today, that should silence the critics.
SherlockGT

In terms of game, very pleased with point. Worked hard, defence was solid. Matty Lowton looks a bargain. Guzan is the best goalie we have. Thought the midfield did well, especially Holman who is full of running. And Bent had his best game in claret and blue in terms of team play. Gabby looked very sharp when he came on as did N-Zog to be fair. Excited about having Bent, Gabby and Benteke in our ranks up front. We'll be fine, we should have won today but got a point at a very tough place to come. Its a work in progress. We have 9 new players and a lot have left. Its going to take time and patience but today showed under Paul Lambert we will get there. Was a bit worried before but they showed what they could do. Refreshing to see us passing the ball and creating chances.
randy.stand

Actually this was one of the better games i have seen in almost a year and half -actually really enjoyed watching it.
Pablo1978

Spot on Pablo. Lots of effort and commitment... it will take time but I am full of confidence it will come good!!!!!!
Timmsy

Just spoke to a few other Villa fans, they was p'ssed of about the result. I told them to find a new club to support. What a great team performance. My heart was in my mouth the hole 2nd half, what a great point. Onwards and upwards. Swansea, Southampton and West brom,, maybe 9points? 10points in 5games. Yes please!! Lowton and Holman, My 2 motm.
Blitz

Fantastic result in my view. Villa dominated almost the entire game in terms of chances. They were very composed and organized throughout the whole match especially in defense. The cards and fouls are a result of an inexperienced squad. They will dissipate as the season goes on. Gabby and N'Zog looked very good after coming on. Gabby very composed and N'Zog looked deadly. All in all a great game just a bit unlucky in regards to that Ben Arfa strike. Enjoyed it though.
clbick3

Good result! Villa aren't burdened by high expectations. Yet. The club are arguably in a better position than Liverpool or Spurs who have fans with unrealistic short term hopes. What a difference eight days makes.
VillaWillRiseAgain

Ron Vlaar, Vlaar. He's the new Paul McGrath. He's stronger than Stella Artois. Ron Vlaar, Vlaar.
tebor1978

Proud of Villa today for sure. A difficult place to go, especially after the two defeats...but a great performance, couldn't have asked for much more than that. Looks like a few beers tonight for me...with a smile for once !
MASON_PARKER

So much better, could of easily took all 3 points...Shocked Newcastle I reckon, they probably believed all the clueless pundits constant bashing of us. Does anyone just think that Everton was just a poor game? Is that not an option? We did okay against West Ham, we were the better team so I think we are too quick to look into things. I'm pretty sure we will be okay from relegation if we can match the toon.
p.avfc

Lol, 78!!! If you made that chant up then congrats. Quite amusing. Do hope that 'Concrete' Ron Vlaar also becomes known as the 'Beater'.
VillaWillRiseAgain

Heroes today, all of them. To. A. Man.
koolbill

Clark needed the confidence I guess. Guzan MOTM. Ten seconds of why we should not be selling Gabby Agbonlahor. And its Stephen Ireland's round tonight - all effing night.
malacaxeta

Good point. 9 shots on target. It was October last season before we'd had 9 shots on target. With the score at 1 1 and he brings on Nzogbia and Gabi, this shows that PL would rather go for 3 points than settle for 1.

Great feedback. Today's draw feels like 10 points. Training this week should be good and fun times, new faces, new found confidence, all-round happy times for us, the club and the players. I just hope we can keep the momentum going throughout the week.
Blitz
I thought Ireland was brilliant today, it's a pity the front 2 don't understand it's best to shoot first, Guzan was great, with this kind of effort we will be ok, I have not seen that kind of effort for 2 years
andy3221
Under pressure and anyone outside the club tipping us for relegation, away from home with no points on the board at a place we do not do well at & new signings not involved, so what does Lambert do....Drops his gk, goes 2 up front and after drawing level tries to win it by bringing on attacking players, brilliant! Great team effort and performance which will increase confidence, but need to build on this and take all 3 points against Swansea. But with players returning and new ones available we will onlyget better. As stated previously, I do not believe we will go down, but still think it will be a difficult season. The rebuilding process is under way, Paul Lamberts claret Blue Army, AVFC...!!!!
marcobavfc
Certainly wont be getting carried away just yet, similarly was not thinking it was all over after Everton, 38 games folks, gonna be fun!!!
marcobavfc
Yes villa just another 39 points and we safe can look see where we will finish
macca1087
Love the quote from Pardew, 'Few teams will work harder than Villa did today'
AntonVilla
That Field bloke talks a lot of sense! Ireland really should've finished his chance as he deserved it from all his running today. Thought Bannan got better as the game went on and again, he stopped looking for the instant killer pass and calmed down and played it more simples. Clark stepped up brilliantly, and Lichaj did well at LB. So many positives, but also still a lot further to go. So should set us up nicely for some hard work in training now ready for Swansea.
mike_field
Have been saying all week we would win 2-1, always knew we'd get a result. Best performance I've seen in two seasons for the effort closing down in defence and for the style of play with the ball. Couldn't believe my eyes at times where we played the ball into someones feet, he touched it to someone close by who continued his run as they one two'd it towards an attacking position with pace style and desire while PL barked and jumped up and down on the sideline. This summed up that we are in good hands and the future will once more be bright, add to that the new signings and continued growth and it's exciting times. Everyone played well but Lowton was brilliant.
AdzVilla11
There's still a long way to go. Still got a lot of hard work to be done, but we're off the mark and off the bottom of the table. Onwards and upwards I say!......
Pride of Lions
Great result and at the right time too with a short break and that allows us to work with the new boys and on set pieces etc. Good stats and well earned point lads. Chuffed. UTV.
holte ender 1969
Got to admit I thought we would get buried by the magpies absolutley delighted with the display and the point.Well done Lambert to get that sort of a performance.UTV.
Merlin128777
Newcastle away is a very tough fixture for any team so I'm happy with a respectable draw :) In Lambert We Trust
Green Villan
Paolo DiCanio is the man! He may not have dropped his GK in the same way that Lambo handled the Given situation, but he is absolutely spot on with his comments - "just because he wears a different coloured shirt??" don't understand all the media hype every time a GK gets left out.... Lambo picked the best team - end of....
gmvillan
The passion was back. It looked as if the boys wanted to win. Sarcastic as this sounds, I'm sure everyone would agree in the short space of one week, the desire is there to be seen. DB running like a teenager after every ball, Holman (when is he going to stop running?!?!). Great to see boys. I am sure every single supporter would back the side to the hilt week in week out with this kind of effort and, oh by the way, not too shabby on the skill factor either. Mr Vlaar is going to be another Laursen the way he puts the body on the line. Reckon Paul Lambert has found the secret to Steven Ireland and, did anyone else think that Gabby was showing another side to his game. Said something end of last season, stupidly perhaps, but I think we showed Newcastle up for what they are - not too happy when put under severe pressure. I have a sneaky suspicion their supporters may be a little disappointed with their overall performances by the end of the season. Anyway, well done you mighty Lions. Effort like that will surely be rewarded with positive results!
