Sheffield United???

Settled team working together for ages. Not a valid comparison to us at all.

Did they have to buy a new team and then have 3 main players injured for 4 plus months but can't replace due to FFP, or have they had a settled team for 3 years when we had a manager loaning players instead?

I think we have been fantastic today and am so sad we are losing because we absolutely do not deserve to be. Let's see if we can keep it up and turn it round.

Get El Ghazi wide and Trez further up. El Ghazi offers nothing and Trez at least got work rate.

Wonder if we'll be sent out in the 2nd half to try and defend our 1-0 loss. Don't want to make our goal difference any worse.

This season is far to early for Konsa and Hause. They need to make up or whatever with Engels and get our back line more stable. Either that or just bring Chester in.

Hause has been terrible this first half. Even when their player broke free from the halfway like and Reina came out to clear, it was Hause that was a couple of yards behind the rest of the back line and playing their player on-side. 

Konsa hasn't been much better and without doubt should have been the man marking Deeney. To be fair, even if he went up for the header with Deeney, I think he would have wanted it more and still scored. 

Up until that goal, I thought we looked quite good albeit without ever really looking like scoring. It's clear as day that we do not have a striker, someone to make clever runs and hold the ball up whilst bringing others into play. 

Nakamba has been the stand-out Villa player so far. He's been brilliant for that 45 minutes and even matched up against Capoue on a couple of occasions. 

He needs to get a grip of that defence otherwise they'll score more.

We can still get something out of this. We were well on top but with no end product. we need to take heart from that and start bossing the ball again.

Samatta isn't likely to be up to a huge amount to be honest, might get a couple of goals but seriously doubt he'll be good enough to go on an insane goal scoring run.

It might help if we had a striker playing

That result is fine. Rather that than Brighton pulling away no?

Yeah looking at the table that game doesn't really affect us, with our goal scoring threat our competition is Norwich....

Drinkwater is so bad, no composure and all he's good for is running around. Get him off and put vassiliev on and play grealish in midfield

Massive massive moment. Smith has to find a way to turn this round in the second half.

Watford haven’t had to get out of 2nd gear being honest. We looked ok because they were happy for us to have it as we have no threat at all.
