    Solid if not flashy performance. We rarely looked in trouble but at 1-0 there are always nerves. Donk was impressive today, he did a superb job on Grealish who rarely got a look in. Jonny good too. Neves probably had his poorest game for a while.

    We have conceded FOUR goals in the league in 2020.
    There are only two man-made objects that can be seen from space.

    2. Low Hill at Christmas

    Have we ever have had 3 easier games in the Prem?

    Guessing the next 3 will be a little tougher

    great finish. clean sheet. always feel a bit nervy near the end at 1-0 but there wasn't much threat really.
    gonna have tougher games in this run in i'm sure.
    it is not that I have no past. rather, it continually fragments on the terrible and vivid ephemera of now.

    I liked Joe Cole saying that the Wolves players would be mad to leave the club now.

    Perfect away performance really, was like a cup tie again against plucky opposition but a bit of real quality changed the game.

    Poor Villa having to a lot of games in a short period of time.

    Maybe should have spent that £120m on a better squad

    I donít actually think heís that far wrong.

    Both teams neat and tidy without creating much.

    Jimenez and Jota didnít really get much of a sniff and Villa defended well - we didnít cause them any problems.

    Apart from Coady, Jonny and Donk we were pretty average.

    Wasn't honestly nervous towards the end. Certainly no heart in mouth moments. It's a rare old time indeed when I can say that as we're sitting on 1-0 lead.

    Pleased for Donck. He seems to have been getting forward more since the restart (might be my imagination, mind) and has been missed a few times here or there. Great finish with his swinger though, doubt he could've hit it much better.

    Was a little pedestrian and flat at times, but it's 3 games in a week after months off. 3 wins, 3 clean sheets, that's pretty much perfect.

    -edit- to add no injuries! (that we know of anyway)

    Maybe someone should let him know we've played more games this season than any team in Europe. And only used 20 players.

    I'm fed up of his complaints after every game.

    He moaned about other clubs having better quality to choose from on the bench last week...he's signed about 13 players this season!
    I pledge my grievance to the flag

    Smith knows his job is in danger so he's started down the delusional road.

    You're chasing a game with relegation looming and there's little effort or desire from his players. They should absolutely be leaving everything on the pitch

    Yep he did a Fulham. They've got so much crap.

    I think it might have been mentioned (in passing) 4 games in 11 days...
    Cosy consensus makes for a boring forum.

    Plenty of stories about Sean Dyche replacing him
    Prediction 24th January: 14 games to go: 6 wins, 5 draws, 3 defeats - final points 57 when the league finishes in May 2023...

    Problem for Smith is Villa fans aren’t going to fall for that
