Inspired sub, Samuel was having a shocker. DOL would have kept him on. Whittingham stuck the only decent cross in. Good to see us up the league even at this stage.

Was a tight game and i was very impressed with Reading who continued to look good even with 10 men. MONs switch from 4-3-3 to 4-4-2 just before the sending off was the turning point of the game. Its nice to see a villa manager that can an actually have an influence from the side-lines.

Was nice to see a Villa manager actually standing on the sidelines and not hiding in the back of the dug out. His honest post-match interviews are a breath of fresh air too

Couldn't get to the game coz working in Cambridge, but watched Soccer night on Sky and MOTD. Sounded like we were very lucky to get all 3 points and the sending off was very dubious. Nice to have a bit of luck tho.

Red card was a little harsh, it looked more of a clumsy challenge than anything malicious. It definitely changed the course of the game, them down to ten, and having to take the livewire Lita off. This was definitely a game we'd have lost last season, particularly after going 1-0 down.
