Aston Villa Message Board
Man U had the lions share of possesion but Villa went 2 up and created the best chances to score more..........................The dissapointing thing is obviously the late goal conceded yet again, but all in all, a good performance and some nice vision from Downing and Bannan, and a solid debut from Hogg.
So, we have shown we can raise our game against top sides but we need to show that against the rest.
really enjoyed the game apart from the last 10 minutes which seems to be the case in every game that we are winning.
Great performances by Albrighton and Downing. Thought Collins threw himself around admirably again yesterday. He reminds me a bit of lionheart Laursen although he doesn't score as much.
Still not convinced about Ashley's role, I prefer him working the wing. Maybe Young, Downing, and Albrighton could rotate that striker supporting position throughout the game and confuse the hell out of the defence (and maybe us too).
Roy - if we could repeat that half an hour every week where we absolutely pulverised United, we would be in the Champions League next year.
Problem is we now have a dodgy defense as well as a lack of firepower up front.
I think the team did themselves proud and I would have taken a draw before the game. Seeing how near we were to winning has left me gutted though.

It always feels different when you get a point from getting the equaliser, to letting in the equaliser..........Even though the net effect is exactly the same.
Hopefully Albrighton can push on and it was nice to see youngsters on the pitch and bench.
Downing had one of his magical days, but they don't happen consistantly enough and Young looked lively
