It won't be that often, that I will feel disappointed to pick up only a point away from home, but I am today, we had more than enough chances to have ran out 3 or 4 to one winners; against a very poor Villa side who look lost and have not that much idea.
Hoolahan, and Holt need to sharpen up a little during the week, other teams not as poor as Villa would have punished us for missing those, but credit to the keeper for making himself big at the vital moment.
But there was so much to be confident about, we outplayed them from more or less start to finish, they didn't look like scoring until Turner's lapse of letting his man go free in the middle of the box, but then also credit to him for not letting his head drop after his earlier mistakes and scored a brilliant glancing header.
Some of movement and short passing (when they hit their man) was excellent , we looked anything like a relegation favourite. But there are still things that need working on especially in the final third.
We were very wasteful at times, passes going astray, and players not looking for thier men, again that needs sharpening up. Sky pundit Alan Smith gave the MOM to Hoolahan, but for me Tettey stole the show, he was protecting the back line, breaking up play and getting forward supporting and creating.
Ruddy had hardly anything to do with only one save just after half time; the Villa keeper was clearly their MOM he earned them the point that they really didn't deserve. With two good shouts for a penalty both on Elliot Bennett the first much more clearer.
I thought the traveling Yellow army, were magnificant noiser than the home crowd and great to hear them singing One Chrissie Hughton....Thank goodness that one is out of the way, Now perhaps Hughton can be left out of that shadow by one and all.
