    18/19 Race for Promotion

    Long way to go yet , wouldn’t be at all surprised to see Norwich and Leeds both go a few games without a win - neither have much strength in depth - I’d still fear West Brom and stoke but no way are villa out of this automatic race yet - long way to go and things can change greatly in 3 games - Norwich and Leeds are there now but I’d be far from confident that either will be in the top 2 come May .

    Fair play to the lad tonight - I thought he was lucky to keep his place but he did well and made a great save onto the bar .

    Agreed , also of the 7 teams above us 6 of them have to visit villa park - we have every chance of getting a top 2 place - leeds and Norwich will struggle if they have injuries and suspensions as the season goes on - I think villa and albion will be the top 2 come May - we will only get better as the season develops

    I certainly think we have every chance - we have a strong squad and will add to it defensively - we will take some stopping - the juggernaut is beginning to roll - onwards and upwards

    A sensible decision and down to Collins to prove his worth before we assess options in jan

    Thin lines in this league - twice we’ve let 10 men equalise against us and add in that whelan penalty miss we would have been right up there .

    Publicly maybe he won’t hang him out to dry but privately I’d be very surprised if he was ok with that goalkeeping display . Didnt Bruce back him earlier this season and then drop him next game ? It might be best for nyland to be taken out of the firing line especially given the way boro play

    I’d be amazed if he starts tomorrow

    Think Fulham fans said similar last season . the addition of a competent keeper and decent defender will make a huge difference very quickly

    We are not exactly miles away now and we have a transfer window only 5 games away - any of the top 8 could realistically aim for a top 2 finish , there is no stand out team and we are not stuck with this defence and keeper until May . we have the opportunity to close the gap on boro Albion and Leeds in coming games and could be right in the mix with a transfer window to come . We are 8th with 27 games to go and we will get better defensively once smith can bring in additions . I saw enough at derby to show me this team can compete with anyone in this division

    I’d have steer back as number 2 ahead of nyland or bunn - still think we need better though as number 1

    Dean Smith

    It was a good strike but still close to the keeper who never moved an inch - there were some great performances last night and some poor ones - hourihane was poor and were most of the defence , keeper was shocking again - we cannot rely on needing to score 3 or more goals to win games , against poorer teams we may get away with Connor sitting deep but last night we needed a more solid defensive option - interesting to see Doyle - Hayes on the bench

    Agree , bolasie did more than enough to keep his place , if el ghazi comes in it would also be for kodjia in my view but I’d stick with kodjia and bolasie for now
