clattenberg had a good game, the dubious decisions against us mainly were given by the linesman!

don't blame him for missing the penalty either... Saha still should have scored.

Seen them given hard for him to catch it though.  Saha was pulled back but didn't make much of it.  In theory that would have been a red card too.

And Saha still got a full head on the ball.  He just misjudged the angle....and the length.

Did he really get battered though, or did he just have a much tougher time?  I agree that he struggled but I don't think he was all that bad.

Every time Agbonlahor got the ball, he just went straight past him with little concern

I find it interesting that only now, when we have a ton of injuries, that we have a starting eleven with players in their specialist positions. It was refreshing, and resulted in our most comfortable performance for a while. Having said that, Saha is a gutless wonder. If Moyes had the same patience with any of our other strikers, they could play themselves into form. Instead they come in, are somewhat understandably overawed and immediately get dropped. Vic was great, Gibson slotted in well and I thought Duffy did brilliantly. It's also good to have Landon back, sadly soon he will be gone. We really need to perservere with Drenthe; He is only just returning to the fold, and he really can do stuff that none of our other players can do. My biggest fear is that the Shite will snap him up and he will be dynamite.

All well with Moyes. He did a great job in ten years and I am truly grateful. Now, I understand that playing Neville Hibbert holder as it is injured and no other option, but I can not understand why Saha plays almost the whole game and it does Vellios a minute ... what happened? A Greek had any unsportsmanlike behavior?

Saha is not the same, this lack of speed, incredible eradication goals, does not dominate the ball well ... what worries me about Moyes, is that having 3 options (Anichebe, Vellios and Stracqua) continue to insist with the French ...

On the other hand, much of Donovan, a good debut of Gibson and Duffy were regular, well in aerial balls, but when the ball struck his foot made difficult

I wouldn't put it past us to nick a 1-0 here:

                     Howard

Neville    Heitinga     Duffy      Baines

Donovan Gibson       Felli       Drenthe
                       Cahill
                       Saha

Maybe dare I say a Cahill or Saha goal....

It's a bullseye on the team prediction but sadly wishful thinking on the score and scorers - great effort though!  :hail:

Another improved performance, something that was becoming visible at the Spurs.

In recent times we could have killed off the opposition.
Something we were still incapable of today, despite being the better team.

Villa were poor, someone said recently that they are a shit team.
Well having players like Bent, Agbonlahor and Ireland surely makes you better than that.
They don't have belief in themselves at all, and Villa Park was quieter than Goodison during the last home game.
It was good to hear our visiting fans out-sing the home fans.

Thought our midfield looked balanced today with the addition of Gibson! Duffy should get more of a look in at centre back in future as he did well. If only we could get the attack sorted as we did well until it was up to having a striker posing a threat.

Drenthe was shit, and at fault for their goal, he needs to attempt the simple route and stop trying to do a McFadden (in his first stay at the club) n take every man on!

Vellios is still injured mate. Im sure if he was fit now he'd be getting game time!

Missed the second half. About the result I expected although after the first half I was hoping we'd go on and win it.

Happy Anichebe scored again. Can't wait until he stays fit next year and leads the league in scoring.
