Villa are showing their confidence by putting us under pressure like they're a top team, but it's daft cos it means we can play on the counter which is the only thing we're great at

That's where the goal came from

Yeah. It did surprise me they were playing to our strengths but they're a tidy unit and our defense is notably worth attacking

We've put Villa in their place a bit tbf. They would have been better off parking the bus, then it'd probably finish 0-0.

The counter attacking strategy isn't controlled though. What i mean is, when Leicester won the league they played deep and hit teams on the break, but you could see they were in control. I don't feel we were in control that half.

Aye very tidy, how'd that happen. They were in a relegation fight last season. Dean Smith must have an idea or two up his sleeve.

Fair point. Will we ever be in full control with the likes of Shaw, Maguire and the Hoof in defence.

I think that's it. Always seems like we're riding our luck and nothing is really planned
