Newcastle going down would make today totally worth it.  Without question.

Absolutely it would.

Would be beyond hilarious.

The person I feel for is Martinez. Fancy being outsmarted by Tim Sherwood.
To be fair to him, he's bizarrely enough, not the first.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

He's the new Redknapp.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.

Didn't see the game just had six pints of Cider in two to three hours. I'm a bit mullered. "Manchester word". Oh well, lets go for the rest of the points. Come on you Blues. :)

Not particularly bothered. They needed the points more than us, think we will finish 9th. 8th is out of the question, even if we'd won.

Already looking ahead to next season.

Just got back from the game, thought we were poor all over the pitch Mirallas and Naismith especially. Think the 3-2 scoreline flattered us.

Copy, saw the same from TV overseas. We were very bad 1st half, but I thought pretty good 2nd.  I think this match you just have to tip your cap and say AV put out a top performance at home.

Jags doesn't get player of the season I'll move to NC.

LOL, as ENC knows, very nice country out there.  You want city? Raleigh/Durham.  You want eclectic?  Asheville.  You want mountains or beaches, NC's got it.  The South is best.

Jags done fine, aside from losing Benteke first half.  Doesn't really detract from the fact he has been a great performer this season.

We looked like a team with little to play for. Completely fine by me as we honestly have little to play for.
Are we there yet?

This is true, however would be more understandable if we had been ok most of the season and this was a one off. I can point to numerous performances where have had the underlying problems that we did today. Slow in possession, open in midfield, shaky at the back, don't have a cutting edge going forward and generally very weak once we let in the first goal.

All combined with bizarre selection by Martinez. We have had a good run recently why not continue with what has worked and finish the season as well as possible.

It is possible that was purely them needing the points and us letting off because we didn't desperately need points, however the signs were similar as at soton, hull, stoke, arsenal, Newcastle etc which for me means we still have plenty of work to do to make sure next season isn't as disastrous as this one has been.

Just watched.... Holy sweet jesus that was a shite first half. Brought back the crappy memories of the first half of the season. I think Delph walked around all 10 players at one point. Just lazy defending, and lazy play in the mid field giving the ball away to easily.

2nd half was a bit better. At least they showed some fight. But Villa's goals were just to easy.
