Absolutely phenomenal performance. Deserved all 3 points today, certainly didn't deserve to walk away with nothing. Pathetic refereeing again and Ronaldo shows the best and the worst of his game. But today was about us, we rose to it and whilst it's gutting to lose nobodies head should be low after that. Fantastic game, for both sets of fans let alone the neutrals. We asked for a response, a proper response from the team and the manager and we got it today.

Played great untill we got our second, then we backed off and invited them onto us. As we thought some of the refs calls were a bit strange i.e going with so many of the lines mans offsides against gabby that we not and the 5 min injury time. If we just keep on top of our opponents and not back off we can beat anyone. A great performance by us and I even thought Shorey was very good.

damn, damn, damn, damn, damn, damn. What a great 3rd goal. Wish we could close games down, so close and yet - again - so far.

How many times in recent years have they come back to beat us. Best we have played in a long time in my opinion.Gutted.

I don't post that often but compelled to do so... We were fantastic and much the better team for 88 minutes of the match. I'm feeling happy because everyone played excellently (except for milner - muppet). I was glad to see shorey playing (well!) and luke young back to where he should be. Well done everyone - just got to play like that in every game!!! Up the villa...

Thanks for nothing! :) How you're team can play so fantastically well for 80-odd minutes and then bottle it in the last two is beyond me. You've ruined my weekend. I hope you're happy. :)

I have nothing to be bitter about but how you can say you were the better team or deserved THREE points is beyond me! I have a lot of respect for MON and Villa but you were playing on the counter and were just happy to not lose. You had a great first half but there was nothing more to it. Going by goal attempts, possession, corners, shots on goal, how could you have been the better team? You played on the counter because thats something you're very good at and I'm not knocking you for that. But you certainly weren't the better team!
