We will never get a better chance to beat them...frustrating. Davies should've scored, can't believe the ball hit the back of his head! I thought Laursen's header was in too...oh well, a point's ok-ish I suppose.

The stats don't tell all the story, for much of the match we looked like the only side that wanted to win, with Liverpool mainly looking dangerous when we over extended ourselves. Liverpool defended deep and in numbers, even the substitutions by Villa were more aggressive than Liverpools, with us ending up with no full backs on the field. Why does O'Neill not believe in full backs , by the way?

Although we looked like we wanted to win, we didn't look like we knew how to break down a side that wanted to defend, except at set-pieces.

Yeah, he did. He was very average. Although I personally think he's not to blame for the lack of chances today - we're missing a Merson creative type in the centre. Ashton would be all well and good, but I think we need someone like Riquelme or Arshavin.

Do you know what, I count this as a very, very positive result. After leaking goals, we needed above all else not to concede. The fact that they came to defend and hit us on the break speaks volumes about their lack of confidence, but the last thing we needed was to get all gung-ho, extend ourselves too much and fall for the sucker punch. Let's bed our new defence in first - especially in games like this - and then build on a more solid basis. Well done for the point, lads.

You believe something the News of the Screws says? Blimey, I thought everyone knew it was a work of fiction.

gabriel agbonlahor was abismal today ! i missed the man city game as was on holiday ,, and went to stoke last week and i think that he really has a lot to work on ! also it looks like he has been hit by the big time charlie bud ! having got 3 DIFFERENT women PREGNANT at the SAME time ! get ashton or owen in and give carew and aggy some competition ,, problem is that both of them know that they are guarenteed a place as they have no serious competition for there places ! come on marty lets get some competition for places going up front ! impressed with petrov today also , and i believe milner should have started, but saying that okey-cokey did well (although looking unfit at times ! ) x
