Kodjia was a 5 for me, got the goal but he selfishness and laziness for me outshone his goal. Perhaps it's the fitness and confidence but I was disappointed yesterday in him. The Bolton centre halves were trying to get a reaction out of him which usually he would've reacted to so perhaps a blessing.

I might be on my own but I thought whelan was quality first half doing the dirty work and getting the ball out of his feet quickly and recycling it. Second half he just looked dead on his feet.


I don't disagree Dan he really got my Goat yesterday , he could have done the decent thing and let Albert have the Penalty . He's always off side as well which pisses me off
I'm probably on my own with this but he threw himself to the floor for the Pen .
As for Whelan he's no worse than golden balls Hourihane who did fuck yesterday

It was a poor performance but nowhere near as bad as some are suggesting . I've seen hundreds of villa games worse than yesterday .
At least we battled for everything yesterday and came away with the win.

It was a pen all day long , the bloke was pulling his shirt off before he tripped him up.

Last season we would have conceded a goal in that type of game and apart from that block at the end Johnstone was relatively untroubled.

Initially i was really surprised at the negativity i was reading on here before i even had walked past the Holte pub on the way out. However, on reflection i think that it came from people not at the game or watching on some shite feed because in my humble that today was, yes on the whole bad (because of the away team), but it was a villa performance of grit, fight and determination. A game that in the recent past would have got away from us. I'm chuffed to bits we rolled up our sleeves and mixed it today. Things were going disrupting the game on that unless you were there you wouldn't have seen .

Dont'blame Bolton really because of their predicament but they came to spoil, time waste, niggle, give fouls away. After the first ten minutes i would've snapped a one nil scrappy win such was it clear the way Bolton were going to play and the game was going to pan out. An example being within the first 15 one of their players going down injured ripping his shin pad off and lobbing it 10 yards away . Did the physio come on ?. No!, but it took time for said player to retireve his shin pad put it back in and fuck about time wasting. The shirt pulling off the ball was unbelievable at times.

The other thing i read was the subs being wrong. No they were not.
1- kodjia still in his recovery to full fitness and Davis is nursing an injury.
2- Both Bolton centre backs were on yellow cards so it was great in game management by Bruce to put on the pace of Hogan and Onomah to try and get at the centre backs with pace as they would've been treading the line being already on a booking.

Actually we played better once the changes were made and were far more a threat deeper into the half.

Samba on was also the correct choice and i'm sure it was him that blocked on the line at the end?

John Terry is absolute class. As well as his huge performance his captaincy came to the fore. After Kodjia failed to square it to Albert for a tap in Terry tore into him but a few moments later was the first to Kodjia to say well done on winning the pen.
Bruce was going bananas at Kodjia aswell. He was halfway towards the holte!.

In all we deserved that totally today. Wasn't great but away at Burton and home to a team without a win or goal in ages were just get through and get out with a win type games.

But above all we mixed it today and the players were playing for the shirt and manager. Im pleased. We have no devine right to roll over 'teams like Bolton' easily, its wrong to suggest or expect us to, and unrealistic in my opinion. And if you can't roll them over then get stuck in and grab the win anyway, anyhow. :94:


Couldn't have put it any better myself (except I'm too lazy to do all that typing!)

So are you saying we are better or our luck has changed Sir Den?

Definately better at the back only conceding 1 goal in the league this month proves that. I f you think of the goals we conceded last season agianst the likes of Barnsley , Brentford and co , thats not happening this season.

If you get a lead it doesn't half help if you are not conceding , like yesterday one goal is all you need.

Defence looks better.

Lets hope this winning lark becomes a habit and the performances pickup to match the results

Now JT has settled into the role / club he is starting to show his pedigree. His positional sense and reading of the game remind me of the one and only saviour from above.

I was delighted with yesterday. The ref was against us, Bolton were niggly and dirty throughout the game, yet we persevered and controlled the game without ever really playing well.

Last season we would never have won this type of game, yesterday we never really looked like we wouldn't win. Big difference. I'm happy.

We've had 10 goals against in the first 11 matches of this season; last season it was 13. Not a huge amount. The big difference is that this season we've scored 17 so far, as opposed to 8 last season. Incidentally the 8 were McCormack 2, Kodjia 2, Grealish, Gestede, Tshibola, Ayew 1 apiece.

Last season Kodjia came in late and hadn't really got going. This season he's really only just starting. Difference is that now we're getting many more goals from other players.
