Good game lads, id say we both had our chances to seal the game, im counting ourselves unlucky, though the crossbar did save us once, good luck with the rest of the season lads

How can we have 57% at home and still have fewer goal attempts? Something wrong with our froward line or supply to the forwards me thinks.

I counted 1 shot on target all game from open play and that was by Harewwod. Are we relying to much on our set-pieces...?

Tough game, always was going to be. Either team could have nicked that but a draw was about fair. Bloody phyisical team that at the ref didn't help the game flow at all fussy git!

I think saying we rely too much on set pieces is silly. Does it matter? If we're scoring the goals then it's ok. I think our biggest worry is the fact that we seem unable to keep a clean sheet. Seems like forever since we last did, despite our defence.

Three points would have seen Villa in the top four OK Liverpool would have had 2 games in hand but Everton and Man City would have had one and been playing catch up, they still have to play each other next month. I would have loved Villa to be there even if it was only for a week or so just to let the players and supporters see what could be at Villa. If Villa cant win these type of games when the opposition come for a scrap then MON needs to bolster the squad with quality players who can rise above the teams who survive on grunt football.

well siad Carlosio it dont matter where the goals come from as long as they do. You never hear fans say we rely on our strikers to much. or we rely on goals fromopen play too much. Its a nonesense we are 3rd top scorers in th prem whats the problem.

It was always going to be a tough game, a severe test of our credentials, too many supporters blinded by our 4-0 triumph at Ewood Park. They are not a bad team, only three points behind us, and they've only lost two away games all season. They make it difficult for the opposition to play, but at the same time contain quality that will make you pay at the slightest opportunity. We were below par, in front of, despite another outstanding turn out, a surprisingly muted Villa Park.
