Arse.   Well, the bright side is Gazza needed more first team experience.  Getting it, I suppose.

Far, far too long since we were enjoyable to watch.

If we come away with a point I will be a happy bunny.

Story of the season so far. We're just so blunt.

I'm beginning to get very very concerned for our season.

We cant score and we are boring too watch (only watched a bit on the blag to be fair) as well, is this Van Gaal?

Thought Gazzaniga was excellent. Made some great saves. One dodgy moment early on with some poor communication but got better and better.

5 defenders and not one of them could get anywhere near Cabayé for their goal.

Otherwise, I thought the 3 centre backs did pretty well.

Our fullbacks are nowhere near as dangerous as they should be. Cedric had an ok game but didn't make the most of some good possession in the final third.

Bertrand had a poor game for me though he did have his work cut out with Bolasie (told ya he's awesomelou_wink2), Saha and also the skate Ward who had an annoyingly good game.

Davis would have scored but for a worldy save from Hennessy. Ok game but bullied by Puncheon.

I thought Romeu had a good game. Always looks promising when I see him play.

Long had a couple of cracking chances and should have put one of them away. Wins a shit ton of freekicks.

This leaves Vic and Mané. Our 2 most influential players imho.

And they have both been shit for weeks.

And there you have why we are losing games like this and drawing with Villa.

Fine Margins.

COYS!

Oh, so now people will believe me when I tell them that Gazzaniga's much-improved from when Adkins threw him in at the deep end. Only been banging that drum for a year or so. wink

 Would love to see him get more game time but still not sure but haven't seen him in the reserves to be honest.

 I watched him in an under 21 game earlier this season and he was dreadful. Fair play to him today. Great performance.

Uhm... Not a great start for BTripz in match thread starting - early days yet, but looks like the new man has his work cut out to get these threads back to their best. Cricked Rab, must be glad he left, But I suspect I am not the only one who wishes fo his return to match thread starting duties... undefeated and now on our third man in less in 5 games...lou_sad
