Omg just been reading the negative comments what game were you watching why is everybody picking on targett his young he will get better pen i belive he was unlucky.

Yes the bench isn't the best but it will get better over years 1st of all we need to get the 1st team right. Staying up is the mark again this season we will improve slowly if i was offered 13th or 14th now i would take that. When we got relegated it set us back as a club 10 years so now we need to build.

It might take 5 or 6 years to be a top 10 side the premier league is the best in the world so our players aren't rubbish they have proved they can play in it. So glad fans aren't in stadiums Villas fans are the worst problem with our club. Blues fans don't slag us as much as we slag ourselfs! Remember WE WON!

My view is i thought we was fantastic all game we could of moved the ball a bit qwicker but we really worked hard. What impressed me was the game management we have learned so much from last year. there's more players to come in we got to get rid of a few 1st but what a performance. I will praise sheff utd they went down to ten men on 12 min they defended amazing! Great win onwards and upwards UTV.

Its early doors, I think people expect us to play like the Barcelona of old, not going to happen overnight but much more assured and can only get better as we get into a groove. Last season we would of lost that Martinez is a calming presence at the back and I think Konsa is an all round better defender than Mings. As for Targett after watching closely I think his main problem is, no matter where it is, watches the ball rather than the player.

When I saw some of the comments at half time, I thought I must have fallen asleep and that we were perhaps 3-0 down.
We won the match for Christ sake, did anybody really think we were going to just blow them away? Not many teams did that to Wilder’s men last season, far from it.
Apart from the penalty save, which was brilliant by the way, Martinez had very little else to do, we didn’t look like conceding. That in itself is a massive positive, there were many occasions last season when we looked like conceding every time the opposition got in our half.
All our debutants did well and the team as a whole kept up a good tempo throughout the match. Some of you though are clearly not happy, I can only think it must take a lot to please you.

My thoughts exactly mark, we did the job, limited them to the penalty and nothing else. More importantly banged on the door until we found a way in, more than we could manage against ten men on multiple occasions last season!

Really happy overall more assured on the ball. no panicking targett probably the only one who was weak. new players definitely an ugrade. konsa is the boy get him a new deal. 3 points against a mosh pit team what's not to like. 👏🏻 Need a new lb tho.

Id hate to see the comments if we lose a game, only negative I seen was targett is the weakest link in defence but it’s only the first game, it’s pretty hard to break down 10 men behind the ball, once we got the goal they were more open as is how it always go’s, 3 debuts were pretty good, super save from emi, next game we have traore to start or come off the bench, plus almost 100% going to have either king or rachica by end of window, Wesley will b back sooner or later that will make our bench look different, if I was to say 1 thing about Deano I might of went with 2 strikers a bit sooner, Ollie and jack came so close to making it 3 nil, if that was the case everyone would b saying how great we were, small margins in football, keep it positive guys utv💪.

First game 3 points . We knew it would be hard against them, but we made it even harder . Why against 10 player, do we slow the game down? Got to admit Jack, was the biggest culprit,
Martinez, Cash and Watkins all had good debuts, Watkins looked just what we need certainly mobile enough . Biggest disappointment was Maginn, he couldn't pass water tonight.
Mings and Konsa must have impressed Southgate, as a pairing tonight. Mings didn't miss anything in the air and Konsa even with a twinge, still looked impressive.
We looked ring-rusty, but as fast as these games will come, we will have to improve.
Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

First competitive match for over half that team we win and people still are moaning give your heads a bloody wobble embarrassing isn't the word I'd describe some of you!

Embarrassing is an understatement for some of the rubbish that’s been put on here Daz!

I completely agree with you daz.
How many times last season did We drop points in games like these?

Very rusty but a win is a win. Moved the ball, made them work and then made them pay when they inevitably tired. Could of been 2 or 3-0 with Jacks chance dragged wide and Watkins just missing the top bin. Good stat to note that we crossed the ball more than any other side this season, shame Watkins was up against 3 centre backs on his own for the first hour. Then when we went 2 up the crosses slowed down a lot, weird one. Konsa a class act, with Southgate there, surely 10 or more performances like that and he's an outside shout for an England call up. Martinez bailed the defence out, letting Burke dribble across the box like that on his own is criminal, one foot in and the dangers gone.

3 points against a very good well drilled side, even with 10 men and all of them behind the ball with two banks of players. Great start, try get to the next round of the cup and then onto Fulham Monday!

Positives, goalkeeper Konsa cash, have got enough room for the negatives.

Martinez is already showing why we paid £19m for him.
Magic!

Well that's the first one out of the way. So let's have a look at the positives. We won. Martinez had little to do but what he did have he did brilliantly and Cash looked good on debut good distribution and quality crossing not seen enough defensively but it looks encouraging Watkins ran around a lot had a decent first 15 minutes but not much after that but in fairness we didn't create much for him to have a go at, and we had a lot of the ball. On the debit side Targett is not a premier league full back when attacking his crosses get blocked and when defending .! We need a new left back before the window closes. Creativity still missing and Jack trying to do too much. We didn't move the ball quickly enough Sheff Utd just set up a bank of four in front of us and we couldn't break it down reminded me of West Ham at home last season when we couldn't break down 10 men admittedly over a much shorter period. And at the moment McGinn looks a shadow of the player he was before his injury and we gave the ball away far to often. With Sheffield down to 10 men after 12 minutes I thought I would enjoy the evening but I found myself biting my nails for most of the match. Its early doors admittedly but even so it's clear more work to do and more signings required me thinks.

Ramsey should replace McGinn, even if its just as a reminder his place is not guaranteed.

Personally I was not surprised at the way we played after all it was their first Premiership match this season and three players were new to the side.
I think this team will get a lot better as they get more matches under their belts.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2020 20:14:09
Why was you so nervous mate? they had one shot on target being the penalty in the 33rd minute and 70% of the ball was in their final third, it wasn’t in danger, the question was whether we could get through their two banks of defenders.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Sep 2020 20:52:25
Because Chris, Targett is an accident waiting to happen as we saw with the penalty he switched off, and we don’t have options because Taylor is worse.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2020 21:05:38
Targett switched off, but Douglas Luis has the chance to cut out the pass that put Burke free, then Cash Mings Konsa and Dougie let him dance along them like puppets on a string for him to slip it in to Basham. There were a lot of people at fault for that goal and it was al rustiness more than anything. As I said the pen was on like 30 minutes, after that they had nothing, it was whether we could break them down, and we did. I don’t see what there’s to be nervous about, Targett barely touched the ball in our half second half.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2020 23:14:29
Think a new lb like you’ve said is highly important. need pace to take advantage of the overlap when jack cuts inside. would love for ya to go full out to get Rico Henry! Tonight also highlighted lack of pace on the wings. hopefully Traore will improve this and ideally need another.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2020 23:16:33
Most teams would have struggled against such a disciplined defence, give Sheffield United some credit. We tried inside and outside and they bust a gut to cut everything out, something every team could learn from.

I'm only annoyed we only made 1 sub. Trez is a harder worker but that match screamed for taking a risk on el ghazi, jota or Lansbury with not needing to defend.
I'm not convinced by Targett but I still think the pen was a dive.

Watkins did everything he possibly could, the striker isn't going to get chances in those games.
Doug showed why he's DM and shouldn't be pushed forwards. The Bournemouth finish last season may have been a one off but he refused far too many chances tonight.

Championship players playing championship football with a championship manager.
Poor!

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2020 20:02:27
A bit harsh mate.
We need to quicken things up a bit, and we will improve slowly.
Got to give everybody a chance Johnny.

21 Sep 2020 20:11:57
Give them a chance to get to know each other.
Fans like you are probably the ones who boo their own team instead of supporting them.

21 Sep 2020 21:02:40
Never boo my own team I will always support them but I call it as I see it, I felt it was a balanced assessment as I did highlight the positives if you read the post.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2020 21:06:03
Desperate for us to fail Johnny.

How are we championship players plying championship football with a championship manager!? Did I miss something or did we not survive in the premiership last season!? 😅.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2020 18:47:34
The time it takes us to get to their are is shocking.
And the same pattern is developing, get the ball in the middle, Watkins will suffer if we don`t.

21 Sep 2020 19:03:00
Dave so true deano can’t be happy with that done nothing.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2020 19:13:55
I think Watkins knows this isn't going to be his match. Playing against 10 he just needs to occupy a couple of defenders while we push the midfielders on.
Get Conor, Luiz and Grealish in good shooting positions around the edge of the area and the breakthrough should come. Watkins to stay alert for a rebound tap in if necessary.
