encouraging signs if i am honest.

Can see eck bringing in his own defenders in January and shipping out a few.

To me Collins and Dunne are both liabilities, Cuellar and clark should be playing as those two have done nothing this season to suggest they deserve to be starting

Over the moon for gabby - he's awesome!

Good result, with some good passing play when we go forward.

Hoofing of the defence is still there but hopefully sorted out.

Nervy end which is natural for a defence lacking confidence.

Hopefully continue to improve.

yep, was pretty impressed today. starting to gel upfront, hopefully we can get the defence tighter.

In his opening post, Limpid always says "keep it

respectful even if you know everyone else wrong"

Well all due respect to limpid, if Gabby don't get 100% of this vote, your all wrong lol.

Gabby man of match.

Played pretty well in parts. Gabby was immense.

Nervy end and defense is guilty of being pretty crap and hoofing it . Was a good game to watch tho. First 10 minutes i was fearing it would be typical McWaaank antifootball display but we played pretty well and created quite a lot . Was an open game.

Gabby was brilliant.

Hopefully we sign some defenders in January - Warnock makes alot of mistakes and seems to be out of position way too often. N'Zogbias end product also is a worry.

3 points never the less, good attacking performance, lets try and continue it!

Good play to everyone. Norwich's defense leaves much to be desired, but still a good game.

Gabby MotM of course, but special mention to Herd and Petrov for controlling the midfield whilst they were on. N'Zog is improving but is still far too left footed for my liking. He could take a lesson or two from Gabby about using his weaker foot.

Entertaining game and naturally we made it much harder for ourselves than we should have. But a win is a win so happy today.

Positives: Gabby was outstanding again. Bent may have got his shooting boots on and CNZ, although frustrating, is getting better.

JJ coming on was good and looks composed and Petrov put in another good shift.

Negatives: The hoofs from the defence and Hutton always makes me feel nervous when defending. AMc was shouting to keep the ball on the deck!!

Overall, happy cos we needed the 3 points and the win!!

Given 6 - could do nothing about the goals

Warnock 4 - Poor passing, poor crossing and missed marking on Norwich second

Dunne 7 - Kept Grant Holt in his pocket

Collins 6 - Better but still not good

Hutton 5 - Wasteful going forward and stupid freekick for Norwich first goal

NZogbia 5 - Good start but faded badly. Predictable and holds on to the ball far too much

Herd 8 - Some great defensive work, promising

Petrov 7 - Much better when he doesnt have that defensive role, injured

Heskey 5 - Started pretty well but faded also and shouldnt be playing.

Gabby 9 - Goal and two assists. Brilliant but 5 yellows already? Suspended now

Bent 7 - Two goals served on a plate by Gabby. Missed a great chance yearly on


Jenas 7 - Did well, some good passes and will be usefull.

Ireland 6 - Wasnt involved much but was in great positions twice on counters only not to even receive the ball.

Extremely important win!

I was certain we'd cough that up at the end.

Defending still needs tightening up, better teams will destroy us.

Gabby is in the stratosphere....

Zog looked good for most of the game, probably his best game so far, still needs to improve though.

That was the most positive football I've seen Villa play this season. At home vs Norwich isn't saying much, and we conceded 2 goals, but still. We could have scored 5.

Mission accomplished, 3 points.... it's going to be a long winter though....
