Just got. Back from Dartmoor and and they've only just discovered bronze up there so a phone signal was simply too much to ask.  Well, I didn't expect that result. Although when I called the team exactly right on page 2 of this thread I did think maybe we'd struggle with grealish, Westwood and Bacuna in the side if that was who did actually get picked. Having said that all I know about the game is from what I've read on here.
So disappointing but we have to remember that the serious problems with villa ran deep and whilst we're on our way to fixing them,  there are still obviously some issues we have to sort. I'm still confident that - as long as  the right signings turn up in the next few days - we'll get there, but already i'm starting to also hear the clock ticking on how long we can keep falling behind. I've never worried about the gap between us and first place,  only us and 6th. Having said that we have to click soon otherwise even that will be a concern.

Gollini didn't seem at fault for any of the goals if you ask me. He pushed the ball the side, but Amavi was sleeping and their attacker got on it. Obviously it's ideal if a keeper holds on to shots, but when you are partially covered it's not that easy. Unless there are other shite interceptions my summary didn't show, then I don't think we should worry too much about our goalkeeper.

Regarding Ayew he got into some nice positions, but his finishing is awful. I think there is something wrong about his attitude though. Look at how he walked back after Grealish's goal. I like Ayew because he makes things happen, but his attitude is poison.


Yep I watched the you tube goals, they did what we should have been doing and passed to players in better positions, theres no place in our team for greedy bastards, but we have a few, its not as if they are crashing them in the chance just goes beggin. Re Gollini it was said from the very beginning he has a tendency to push shots back into play, that should be coached out of him but until then the other players in our team should be alert to this, the opposition are.

Their first goal: Gollini once again sets it up for them. We call saw in the YouTube highlights when he signed that he has a nasty habit of parrying the ball back in the lath of the opposition.

2nd goal: maybe could have done better.

3rd goal: looked a cracker tbh so no blame there.

But that first goal is down to him and is the sort of thing that causes mental frailty to kick in on a team-wide level. It's time to put this kid - and at 21 he is a kid - back into the reserves and let Bunn take over. I see lots of disparaging remarks about Bunn but I've yet to see an explanation as to why. Should be our first choice.

Ayew looked selfish yet again in not squaring that ball to make it 2-0 (and you'd think game over).

I thought I'd wake up less pissed off but I'm still raging. Replace the owner, replace the manager, replace 80% of the team and it's the same shit. Maybe it comes down to time....but in 6 weeks if we're still getting hammered like this then RDM had to go.

I'll also call it now: Amavi, who we thought would piss all over this league is a nothing player. Has the long term injury taken its toll? Was he not really all that good to start with? Who knows but he looked very dodgy in those brief highlights and if Cissokho is preferred then there's a problem.

I really hope someone quotes this in a few weeks to prove how very wrong I am but he looks suspect in the extreme to me.

It's the same old story on repeat!

Ayew & Bacuna = missing sitters and consistently making the wrong choices when it matters! Really frustrating!!

Keeper looking ropey and now teams are gonna target him as a weakness for sure!

Amavi appears over-rated

Injuries racking up, Gestede last week, Cissokho this!!

But it's the repeated poor quality finishing that's hurting us and this ridiculous habit of crumbling under pressure.

I actually fear for us now this season. Just looked at the fixture until xmas and it is worrying as i again feel like "where are the wins gonna come from". We need a good win next time out against Forest to restore hope as promotion is looking beyond us already after that debacle!

Not impressed thus far sadly!

I was at Monkeyworld with no signal and driving back I'd just stopped the car to throw up in magnificent style (it appears I have that virus) and asked the wife to check the final score, she told me she'd tell me when we got home but I saw the screen. As you can imagine my already bad day got a lot worse!

My wife has the virus now but we can't tell if the (ten-month-old) boy has, he's like that anyway.

I assumed from the little I saw that we were wasting chances again, and with Westwood and Bacuna in the side there are still big problems with midfield. I'm going to have to read up on it all when I can see a bit straighter!

Can't see us beating forest unless we move Gollini, Bacuna and Ayew to the bench.

Gollini has still got that habit of pushing balls out back into dangerous areas. This is something that could easily be trained on but for some reason he still isn't. (Or does the GK coach think this is ok?)

Bacuna, besides setting up the goal he hasn't done much. He's a handy player to have but more as a utility player. One to have on the bench as a backup.

Ayew either needs to score a goal soon or be benched. His attitude could be seen as selfish, yes he should have squared the ball to make it 2-0 but then maybe he is desperate to prove to himself and RDM that he can score the goals to take us back up/fashion a move elsewhere in the future lol.

Anybody see or can comment on how well Jedinak did?

I'm really tempted to change the word filter so that "St.Andrews" comes up as MonkeyWorld. It seems to fit in well with how you've described your day.

Sorry to hear you're all sick but what is THAT virus? I've genuinely no idea what you're referring to. From monkeys I'm thinking HIV or Ebola. You should probably log out of here and seek medical advice.

Ha, you definitely should!

Norovirus. Fortunately it's a holiday in the UK on Monday so I get a couple of days to hopefully get rid of most of it but it's highly contageous.

I think opposing managers have given us too much respect in the first half of games and stood off allowing Grealish Ayew and McCormack to get plenty of possession and therefore create chances. If you give players with technical ability time on the ball, they'll punish you.

Once they have a chance to reassess and have a go, we have no plan b and can't control a game when we don't have the time and space to operate.

We have no outlet up front for the ball to stick, have no midfielders who can thread a pass in tight spaces, and worst of all, we have no ball winning ability in the team either. Gana and Sanchez won a lot of turnover ball last season but we just keep giving it back to the opposition because of the other issues.

We need a Gana who can pass the ball or least pass to someone who can pass. Hence why we will always fail with Westwood in the team!

It's an unfortunate situation where you got a lot of new players, new manager, new tactic, and along with this players coming back from injuries rusty as HMS Duke of York.

It's like we got an entire club that needs to get match fit.

One thing that keeps me sane is the hope, owner and team compared to last season we will come good but needs settling in.

Indeed. Hope and a few green shoots of change.

The Rotherham result masked over all manner of problems that then came back to the surface. But there are some good signs.

It's a shame really that Xia didn't realise the true extent of the problem a lot earlier.

He's been poor, but I think it's mostly being off pace and lacking match fitness. And he might be a little scared of getting into the mix. Pretty standard reaction after a tough injury. Fastest way to solve it is just to play a LOT of competitive football.
