A Worthy Winner In A Close Man Of The Match Poll (Norwich)

Nice close competition between the two main performers v Norwich City. Isn`t it amazing how different you feel after a win? I do like that strange thing we seem to have had on our faces as we walked out of Villa Park. I believe they are called smiles!

Just shows how well Davis played (and how appreciative us fans are to have a proper centre forward) when a guy who scored a hat trick from midfield including two strikes from 25 yards, doesn't get man of the match!

That's it..... in a nutshell gmvillan. It was a tough one, but it had to be Keinan for me, I mean, look how he burst onto the scene... very unlucky not to score, but it won't be long.

Two ways to join midfield to attack. 1) get creative midfielders to do it. 2) get a striker to hold the ball up and allow midfield to move up. We have been missing option 2 since *insert date*. Benteks and Kodjia as good as they are, are pass it to them and hope for the best players, they dont get the best from the MF. I really hope when the old kodjia is back SB has the minerals to play Davis as well as Kodjia in a 442
