Villa Fans Post Fulham Win Reaction


Credit where credits due! Thought we played well today. Pressed them well, sussed their game plan out from the start. They want you to tire as you press them so they can punish you in the last 10 mins. Thought we were well organised and played good stuff at times. Some better game management though in the last 10 mins is needed. Gave the ball away to cheaply which just heaped more pressure on us. I think Whelan is a weak link though. Minor points but hey happy!!! UTV

Great win but we were far from convincing we still have work to do will take a draw against small heath

Possession is still a problem. 32% at home is poor to say the least. Result was good, and being in the top six is pleasing. Long way to go though.

Only 2 comments, we must have won again! Thought Bruce got it spot on bringing Onomah back in for Davis, his ability to drop deeper when we don't have the ball is needed against the better teams in this division. Perfect way to respond to last weeks non performance

Good win, nice to be near the top. Lots of improvement to come which bodes well. I want automatic promotion

Good win lads, but i am wondering how bad Whelan needs to get before we find a better option,

A win is a win but surely Bruce must stop our midfield from ball watching and teach them how to pick up players when they have the ball in our half. So many times they were able to bring the ball up to our 18yard box unchallenged because we didn't have a player within 10yards of theirs. You can see Fulham were also targeting our flanks and something we will see happening each week. Fortunately unlike Wolves the quality of the cross wasn't as good or the result could of been similar.

Great to get back to winning ways and hopefully we can do the same next week, the one thing I was disappointed with is Bruce not giving O'Hare some more game time, last 20 minutes his energy would of been great on the pitch. We need to be giving our youngsters 1st team exposure.

So much better, we were unlucky to go in 1-1 at half time. Unlike last week, I thought we were comfortable v Fulham. Now in the top six, lets stay there!
The Fear

Much improved physical approach by players. Got stuck in and were allowing Fulham very little space to play in. Everyone worked hard to close players down, which allowed us to play some good stuff from it. That was the effort and work rate I expect everyone to put in every week, particularly next week or we`ll get nothing. I can understand why Pochettino hauls up players for poor body language as it sends a positive message to the opposition and a negative one to own fans. In this respect I thought young Keenan needs a bit of guidance.
Wicked Messenger

Had my doubts about Bruce as a tactician but today restored some faith. Not saying he`s Pep Guardiola but still good to see him deploying an extra midfielder today.

This season - let's face it - is a long slog. But the building blocks are gradually being put in place and I feel sure that our manager sees the need for simple consistency as being the best armoury towards getting promotion, regardless of the % possession we achieve. Let's face it, even with such low possession we still had more goal attempts and strikes on goal than Fulham, And its the number of attempts at goal that will get you the points, not possession.
