"Unlucky"? Villa had by far the better chances and more of them.  It was like the brentford game but on the other foot regarding chances.

Clueless Moore gets out of jail again, abysmal substitutions yet again, no chance we're keeping a clean sheet this season. Villa will get in the automatics if they replace that sh*t keeper in January. If we'd appointed Smith in the summer we'd be top by miles.

A point is better than nowt but shouldn't have got that if Abrahams had put away one of his many chances

Very lucky to get something, Abraham could have had a hat-trick and Rodriguez's goal was a handball.

Oh well, at least it was against the Villa  ;D

Poor tonight especially second half, Moore's decision making for substitions is beyond baffling. Happy to get a point against that lot but over the fffing moon that it was the hand of jrod  :D ;D :P

But 6 points from two away games was pretty good wasn’t it.

Our inconsistency is absolutely mind blowing. I don't blame Moore completely for that either. There were times tonight when it looked like we had dopplegangers out there.

What I don't like is the selection of Barry. The failure to attempt to address being steam rollered with any tactical changes or personnel changes until far too late.

The same problem at the back, we give them too much space around the box.
Luckily J-Rod got a point for us at last. ;D

I didn't think villa were anything but average, we face an uphill task to get promoted simply because we are krap in defence.

Fair result I thought

Villa are hugely improved under Smith

Barnes and Gayle quiet tonight even though the 2 combined to score

I really enjoyed that game I gotta be honest, great advert for the championship

Should have beat Brentford

Not happy but not unhappy

Hand of Rod

McGinn is a decent player

Typical derby , our weak areas shown up tonight .
Old , slow midfielders trying to be played in an open fashion , suicide and can only hope some mobile midfieders arrive soon.
Yes Villa are decent going forward but as with the better teams if you let them shoot in good positions they will score , we don't seem learn this lesson do we ? Foster isn't in goal anymore.
Frustrating really just as wasting Gayle out wide , biggest joke was Jrod getting the goal as I thought he was woeful .
Never want to lose to them , pleased we didn't but this isn't good enough. As for the suicide tip tapping about in our own area......again we don't learn.

Good game between two good sides I thought. Adarabioyo played well and got tight to Bolasie whilst I felt that Barry and his lack of mobility really hindered us.

Moore seems to have settled on this 433 where Rodriguez drops in to help the midfield when we haven't got the ball whilst leaving the wingers high. If we had a left footed Barnes equivalent on the right we'd be a real force, need to be on the lookout in January.

Shame we didn't get the 3 points against Brentford as now we are 6 points behind the 2 point per game average required to seal automatic promotion. 3 additions in the window, right back, central midfield and left footed forward player and we can really make an assault on top 2.

Excellent game and an excellent point against the form team in the league. They had plenty of chances and played well yet their goals were a deflection and a superb strike.

Thought we competed well and kept going showing the fighting spirit you need in this league.

Subbing Livermore made little sense to me and perhaps we can put any talk of Brunt and Burke to bed. Brunt was poor and Burke did nothing. Thought Barry was excellent. Picking out a purple of points where he showed a lack of pace does not characterise his performance. I’d still see Morrison start when he can.

So you expect us to win 6 games in a row and because we haven’t, against the form team in the league and a very capable Brentford side, let alone a run that includes Leeds, it’s unacceptable?

Laughable.

About time we had some luck against that lot. The hand of rod as it shall go down in folklore.

We were pretty poor overall in that game we had a spell before and just after half time but not much else.

Subs were baffling. Barry and brunt axis is even more of a regression than brunt and Livermore.barry did well first hour than he needed switching. Bar his handball at the end jrod was abysmal we need Gayle through the middle.

Burke was terrible when he came on and we were largely at sea in the second half, if Abraham could finish we would have been put to bed.

We haven't lost and we fought back twice and the way we equalised will have that lot moaning for quite a while so can't argue with that.
O Albion we love you

So to clarify, you expected us to win every single one of the last six fixtures?  Just want to check. Please, please reply.
