Stoke City vs Aston Villa - 24.07.21 @15:00


Recommended Posts

No-one is having fits or a meltdown over the performance. Its been rubbish, its pre-season without a number of a key players so it doesn't really matter but they've been rubbish so the comments in a match thread are going to reflect that. If we win 5-0 should positive comments not be allowed in the match thread because its pre-season and it doesn't matter?

Not watching the match, but getting carried away with good results, or totally dejected with bad results should surely be out the system for most of us by now?

Haven't Arsenal and other Prem teams lost to shite teams as well?

This is about fitness and giving players a run out.

Completely agree, but it would be nice to score today

Been awful, midfield is still an issue and been bullied at times. Moved the ball too slow as well. 

This is why we need a leader in there. I don’t see any of McGinn, Luiz or Nakamba being vocal enough to drive us forward from midfield. Not seen enough of Sanson either, but if we had another player with Mings’ character in a DM role it would stop teams walking through us, and would also mean that Martinez doesn’t have to save the most shots of any PL keeper in the league.

Well said JV.

Big Wes and hotshot Keinan to bag a couple each.

Ash looks nice. He will be a great deputy but looking like I'd give him plenty of air time. MT no1 though.

Few fits here and there to be fair.

To begin with a pre season game is just that, nothing more so results are pretty insignificant. But that said I feel a performance like this can only be a good thing since it showcases how much work there is still to be done and that we are only a top-10 PL side when our best players are all playing and on their game.

Squad is limited and while the youth players are promising, we ain't there yet.
