Donovan did well. Duffy looked solid, though he was a little at fault on the goal, got dragged out of position. Saha and Neville truly are done and dusted. We had no one who we could have played in place of Neville, but i do think Saha should only come off the bench (it is how he scored his one, well taken, goal this year).
Gibson, as has been mentioned, looked solid, but I do question whether it was wise to spend money on him when we so desperately need a striker and moyes said he wants to bring in a defender. Does anyone know how much he cost?
I think its time for Bily to go... We have gueye, Mcfadden, Barkley, Donovan, Anichebe and Drenthe who can play left mid, and we just dont need him. He looks short of confidence, and I think we could still sell him for around 4 or 5 mill, enough to maybe get some striker in.
Overalll, a point away to villa is not to bad of a result, but I thought the game was for the taking, particularly first half, so typical as of late. Good to see anichbe put in a good shift and score a good goal. I will agree with everyone that anichibes strike rate over the past few years was poor, but people seem to forget he was often playing out wide... Well hopefully he can grow into a good striker, as we surely need one. Not sure if he is ready to start.
That is all
