played some good attacking stuff but tacking was shite
but what was totally inexcusable to me, and it's a basic rule in pretty much any sport that involves a thing filled up with air that's either kicked or thrown, that if the team doesn't have the thing, then their chances of scoring are greatly reduced. so with that in mind, why the **** did we keep giving it to them?? especially with less than 10 mins to play and we were winning? i didn't get it at all.
Oddity in that we were probably the better side but critical errors at the back cost us.
Also shows that despite having the better possession, Villa desperately need better carriers of the ball. Tete and Barnes had the freedom of the flanks to really run at us and once they got the fullbacks turned, they had time and space to pick out that diagonal run behind.
We still often play in front of the defense with no one able to take on a man besides Bailey once in a blue moon.
More help needed to really challenge for Europe but will accept the in progress work.
