the last few minutes were ridiculous haha. It's nice to win, but it was less than convincing! especially considering the opposition. Gabby played well when he came on, a lot more direct and intent on getting shots away than anybody else that was on the field first half. Albrighton played really well and Clark was very good too. Warnock was rubbish, and god knows what Dunne was playing at at the end there, every game the back 4 seem to be convincing me more more that we should just get rid of all of them!

Warnock is quickly becoming (has become) a laughing stock and a liability. I don't usually like to criticise individuals but FFS. 90% of what he does is dreadful. Get Enda Stevens in ASAP. Why are we so boring to watch? We really should've buried them today

What looked like a comfortable performance quickly turned into an utter shambles at the end. Dunne and Warnock aren't fit to wear the shirt anymore. That said, all 3 Villa goals were great finishes. Bent looked frustrated though with morons repeatedly blasting the ball over/wide when he should've had simple tap ins. Steven Ireland looks sharp as hell. Overall - a mixed bag, but we're through somewhat unconvincingly.

You've just got to laugh. At one point I saw McIdiot drawing question marks in the air whilst shouting at the team - what sort of tactical instruction is that? Clueless. And at the end I would have *****ed myself if they had scored the penalty.

Nice to win but with all due respect to Rovers they are one of the worst teams I've seen in years. Villa did the job but you wonder how that performance would have fared against a better side. Warnock for me has to be dropped / Sold / Banished / Shot....Still, we're through so we have to look on the bright side...

A wins a win as they say, but equaly as is a poor footballer is a poor footballer@- Dunne, Warnock heskey and collins get rid and replace and we may do better, but good goals today and nice to see the kids score, how did Gardner play for the 15mins he came on for?

Gardener didn't see too much of the ball, but had a decent shot on goal towards the end that forced a good save from the keeper.

Nice to find we won, but again the performance seems the main talking point.....

3 goals and then we got lazy. Our back 4 need to go or change dramatically.
