awful today if sheff utd and wba win its a shocking weekend

still 10 points from 7th though and not to get carried away from 1 loss but top 6 is vital still , top 2 would be exceptional but any play-off berth will do

Absolutely awful first half from us. Better second half, but falling behind now. Bad result, cold, and then trains cancelled on way home again. Shit day.

Good week for Norwich and most likely west Brom. Could do without losing at Norwich next week now

I thought Smith was a cracking appointment by Villa, not working out too well then VL?
Eh, I’m not saying he’s not a great appointment. He gave the club a lift and we looked world beaters going forward for a few games on the bounce. It’s no coincidence that we lose Grealish and we go to shit. It was the same last season when Grealish weren’t playing. Crazy really as he doesn’t score many or set up many. You can’t rely on one midfielder to get you playing well and to fight for promotion. With him in the team we’d still be probably not good enough purely based on our defence. The problem is we look shit going forward too at the minute. You’ve got some fans coming out already saying he’s not the man for the job, but there were fans saying that before his appointment. One thing I will say is, he won’t have felt pressure like he will at villa. The fans were foaming at the mouth when hull went 2.0 up .

Refreshing honesty VL, fair play. I wasn't insinuating anything by the way, just a question as to what's happening at Villa park.

I know you weren’t. Things were on the up, so it seemed. We were playing our best football since our top 6 days under Martin O’Neil that’s how good we were playing. Back to everyone moaning again now. It drains the fuck out of you. Andre Green played well today, so glad we’ve recalled him.

Villa should play that O'Hare lad, looks quality whenever I've seen him.
The lad has potential but is not strong enough yet. He needs to go out on loan somewhere and get some game time. He got taken off in a demoralising Fa Cup defeat to Swansea. Andre Green was very good yesterday. He will start next game I would have thought. We need to send Bolasie back.

Think we are out of this now. We weren't really in it but kept getting within a couple of points. We are going to with the FA cup instead.
