Yedlin did something similar this time last year against Wolves. Getting sent off for and costing us.  Fouling at edge of box ..You th9nk he would learn his lesson

Another away loss to a relegation rival. I miss Rafa.

We only lost to 1 side away of the teams outside the Big 6 last season.

The lack of pressing as a team has been ridiculous this season.  Rafa had Diame/Longstaff/ Hayden all pressing together as a team. Joelinton tries to close down defenders looks around and there's no one else trying to press.

There was a 5 minute spell in the 2nd half where Shelvey started pressing higher and we forced mistakes but obviously Shelvey can only do that briefly before he's blowing out of his arse

Two mistakes, two goals. We actually got into some decent positions, but final ball was poor - no fluidity in our attack. Heaton made two class saves - but we deserved to lose. Bad result.

After watching the highlights those two set pieces from Hourihane were absolutely superb, particularly the delivery for the second.

Heaton should be ahead of Pickford in the England set-up too. Every time I see him he seems to be making game changing saves.

s*** game we lost because our defenders couldn't score two goals this week. To their credit, they came closer to getting one than our strikers.

If Lascelles plays, I don't think they get the second quite as easily. We'll just have to deal with it, but him getting injured off that sly push does leave a bad taste.

Given how bad our attacking play is, I think we are lucky to be where we are in the league.

Perez and Rondon were massive defensively as well. Perez in particular is like losing a striker and a midfielder.

As s*** as we were, Heaton made 2 incredible saves that won the match for Villa - first half on Fede's header and the diving save in the 2nd on that strike from ASM

You'd think they might remember how to do it from last season, but I don't recall Rafa had them pressing every opponent?

Heaton's save to Fernandez wasn't incredible but the one to ASM was a really excellent save

we have differing opinions on that save then. thought he did brilliant to get down on that quickly.

Dubs pulls off saves like that most games, it's what they are there for.  How many points has deGea been worth over the previous seasons

couple of great saves by Dubs cancels those out.

Watched the first half in a pub in Wolves, dreary me, they all look even worse than I imagined. Glad I’ve sacked them off and won’t be watching that s*** anytime soon. :lol:
