Still good, although Villa lost to see 58% possession and 17 shots on goal, I think it was 17 against Newcastle too. A minor blip for the Villa and I suppose people will be disapointed with losing away to a team in the top 6 in the league away from home.

I'd rather play poorly and win. You can gloss over this by saying we played well but the fact is we have a soft underbelly. How long can we persist with Petrov? He hasn't played well for months. Drop him and lets see if we get a reaction. On the plus side Carew was awesome again and Moloney showed some nice touches. Thought Cahill played well. Not sure about Bardsley though.

Is Barry good enough at left back? I'd prefer Bouma with Barry slotting into the middle of the park next to McCann. Drop Petrov. How long will MON persist with him? Sorry, but dissapointed.

we seem to be very poor defensively at the moment and are always chasing the game.. Have to agree about Petrov who is just not performing and Mcann keeps giving the ball away...! Maloney was our best player along with Carew.

I think today shows that we have to be very patient with our rebuilding as we are still a long way off being good enough for Europe. I think most people would agree that central midfield is the main problem but the bottom line is that apart from the front 2 and Barry, how many of the rest are good enough to make us a top 6 team? Some may come through like Gabby, but he is clearly in need of the 3 week break. If we finish in the top 10 this season then that should give us a platform to challenge for the top 6 next season, but I still think we need 4 or 5 new players to improve the defence and midfield.

Out-fought and out-thought in midfield. Best players, John Carew and Shaun Maloney. Dont know how much Sidwell would cost, or whether we could lure him away from a Reading team competing in the UEFA Cup, but what an addition to our squad he would be.

have to say thought mccann was dreadful yesterday,his passing was pathetic and petrov wasnt much better,at least one if not two new midfielders in the summer needed.carew awesome again and maloney looks a real good player with plenty of bottle to go at defenders,now i know why celtic fans were disgusted to see him go.sidwell would be a proper signing if we get him,martin i think will get him too.
