We dominated this game but again the final ball to Gabby and Carew was woeful. Bouma and Barry were very poor. Great goal from Maloney, he basically saved us today.

When looking at the stats and listening to the press it would appear Villa should have got more out of the game, with the ref disallowing a late goal it seems to have been a fair result.

Would be nice to see Maloney get his chance now, he could be the playmaker we are looking for, certainly a free kick specialist!

Col - Listening to the press? It does make a nice clunking sound, I suppose!

We dominated for long spells, without really looking in full control, and likely to take all three points. Perhaps the draw was the fair result at the end, particularly as the home side squandered the better openings.

We dominated this game more than we did the games against Birmingham, Boro, and Rovers. Agree about Maloney, but where do we play him?

Good point overall I think. They are not a bad team on home soil. Not too many teams will leave Sunderland with the spoils.
