good first half for us ,need to be a bit more deadly in front of goal. A point was about a fair result. I thought bolton were the long ball kings!!!! Watford are tough but have no skill, still think they will go down.

So disappointed, keeping in mind in Australia i had to wait for the game to come at 2:15am and watch till 4:30, with my birthday being the next day. I was expecting a nice birthday victory too, but to be honest it was trash i went to sleep at 70 mins hoping to wake up and see we've scratched a victory. Well to be fair, it was trash compared to our first few games, i expect victory next week!

First half we were ok - good atmosphere in the Villa end. I had forgotten quite what a poor ground Vicarage Road is! But second half was really disappointing. Very little movement from Villa, even at throw-ins and set pieces. Although Watford played it long, it wasn't entirely clear what stopped us playing it on the ground more.

I was impressed with Laursen, thought he had an outstanding game and looked a very classy player. Sorensen had a good game with some world class saves. I thought our players were easily knocked of the ball as Watford were very physical. Draw was a fair result

No, I didnt think that it was 'trash' either. Thought we should have been ahead after the first forty-five, probably by a match winning margin, but it the second half they threw everything at us in their very original style, but our defence coped admirably. Needed two or three outstanding saves from Tommy, but overall I wasn't overly disappointed. Agree with hampshire villian that last season we'd have very definitely lost that game. This time out, if we'd have took our chances, we'd have headed back to Brum with all three points. Our development and progress continues. All is not right, but we're on the right track.

Clearly a tale of two halves. And Sorensen was outstanding.
