Every game from now until Wigan are vital, so is this a yet another ‘must not lose’ which we have lost before ?
90 – NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Fellaini second from yes a corner
82 – Holman on for KEA and of course Reading get a late goal to go 2-1 up and Saints now 2-1 up
73 – Sylla makes his debut for Villa at such a crucial time for Nzog
69 – Fellani scores and surely we do not need 4 to WIN do we ??? We just can not keep them out and until we do then struggles. All other games now level so massive for us to hold on
61 – Another Liverpool type game eh ?? Benteke gets the third with a diving header from a Lowton cross, is it safe this time ?
52 – A Villa counter attack and Weimann misses a clear chance, we have seen for and against us what happens when clear chances are missed
48 – Villa get away with a possible penalty against us for holding in our box
16:02 – Second half kicks off and could be one of the vital 45 mins of this season. Remember this is a ground we have a half decent record at Goodison
45 – Got to Half Time in the lead, somehow …. in many ways like our game on scouse land earlier this season … we hung on then, we have to if the rest stay as they are
43 – Everton all over us with Free Kicks and shots really hanging on and can we do this for another 45 ?
41 – Newcastle one up against Chelsea
35 – Weathered a bit of a storm, our pace .causing issues through Gabby but defending looks all over the place again but even though Everton had plenty of corners, so far so good
25 – Wigan gone 1-0 up, Reading 1-1 Sunderland
22 – And now Gabby scores from a cross from Westwood to put Villa 2-1 up, could be a very high scoring game this one
21 – Was all Everton and now Anciebe easily rolls Clark to score, Clark weak yet again
15 – Even game, I have Ooahh texting me from a pub watching it, Weimann has a chance from a corner.
10 – Now all Everton, we actually defended some corners !!
5 – Reading 1-0 up
2 – Maybe away from home is the only way we are going to get out of the mess ? Especially if Benteke can actually take chances from a Nzog through ball.
15:00 – Game about to start and lets see what happens
14:42 – I will not be able to watch the game today so will be mainly off what they say on Soccer Saturday and comments on twitter.
14:37 – QPR draw YET again and that probably suits us, they look like they can not simply score, now for our vital game
14:17 – Guess I am happy with that team, not sure we could play much else with what is available but the midfield just looks woeful
As for QPR game still 0-0 but all QPR and they have no forward to put chances away.
14:01 – TEAM NEWS – looks 442/431
Guzan, Lowton, Vlaar [c], Clark, Bennett, Westwood, El Ahmadi, Agbonlahor, N’Zogbia, Weimann, Benteke
subs: Given, Sylla, Bent, Holman, Bowery, Dawkins, Baker.
No NEW SIGNINGS starting though, how very very strange
13:58 – Stonewall pen for QPR but great save there by Norwich keeper
13:55 – First proper action and Norwich denied by a great save
13:31 – totally rubbish game and not sure I can add anything more to what I said earlier
13:20 – Nothing changed at all, no real chances, nothing of quality on show, two very poor teams
13:02 – Well this game is total rubbish, on this standard the PL is so bloody poor.
12:43 – Close to KO now for QPR and lets hope Norwich can win it
11:50 – Early start because QPR vs Norwich as the early KO is obviously totally vital to us. I hate looking at other teams results but in our position we have no choice. The good news from Loftus Road is that Remy is injured for QPR and may miss a fair few games. QPR failed to strengthen up front as they could not capture Crouch. A Norwich win ia what we would like today. It may take Norwich all but safe but QPR is more vital to us. A QPR win of course would mean one point off the bottom before we kick off later.
As for Villa if we do not see a pretty simple 442 I will be shocked. Baker will play LB I suspect and the two new signings I do fancy to start.
