EFL1 (Championship), Saturday 25/08/2018 : Aston Villa 1-1 Reading

No luck with the stream today, had to rely on Jeff & Co.
Per the SSN Live Commentary the attempts (including goals) were 12-2 & 8-1 = 20-3 to AVFC ... but we concede a late penalty and drop 2 points, FFS.

Despite this setback AVFC are 4th, with 9 points from 5 games, but are now 4 points off top spot.

Attendance : 33,405 (SSN)

very disapponted and frustrated with that----we must take the chances,that second goal would have sealed a win --- wtf was that goalmouth scramble i thought they had scored twice!

El Ghazi looks lively-- lovely centre for Elmo to nod in, reckon he should have stayed on-----McGinn ran ran and ran---thought Birkir  had a good game---didnt look a pen from back of The Holte but  the ref was only too eager to point to the spot---the ruddy player was going nowhere --very unlike Chester-

Could,nt understand replacing Kodjia with Taylor???? we then had no threat up front---- although Kodj seemed completely shot-and a wee bit disinterested for the last 10 minutes---Trying to shut up shop against------Reading at home just aint f******g right!!!---

More points dropped. Just failed to put the game to bed.

Bruce commented that the players looked tired but didn't make changes early enough. Was clear Grealish was injured after 20 minutes but the further injury was risked by keeping him on until half-time. Kodjia looked very tired which is understanding given the injuries he has had after around 50-60 minutes but was kept on until very late on.

I was impressed with El Ghazi and if we can get the best out of Bolasie then we may be a real force going forward.

 

Bruce just needs to get the balance right and understand the player fitness more. We are the only team in this division that doesn't seem to be able to play 2-3 games a week so fitness within the squad is still an issue.

Agree 101%   fitness certainly does seem to be a problem,once more!---other teams seem to have no problem,coping with the demands of the regularity of games---  

accepting its early days ---as per last season its points dropped like this  that may well come back to haunt us next May,we need to press on and put more than one goal between us and the opposition---as is so often the case 1 and sometimes 2 (Blooose last night) simply aint enough!!!

We need to learn from past mistakes but going by what we have seen we haven't.

  • Fitness is still an issue.
  • Playing players out of position.
  • Killing games off.
