Looks like we are the testing bed, for all the YTS refs, another one today, that I'd never heard of .

Great result, fully in control first half, played some great football . Big difference today was our passing . Very surprised by their two goals, but Villa weathered the storm and recovered well . Ollie is playing so well, his running is so strong, we where wondering why Chambers, was warming up for the whole of the first half .Hopefully it was just a way of managing Pau, hope he's not injured again . Got to give it Chambers, had hardly any football, but ever let us down .
Sky will be stumped tonight, after a week of building Man U up, I suppose they will find some excuse for it .
On to Luton, got to keep it going .UTV

Dave, totally agree, match of the day couldn't understand how a team in form could succumb from a team who were outplayed by villa last week. I can't understand how an average team can take six points off us in just over a month. We really need to stop sloppy errors and if we can do this, fourth place is ours.

It is frustrating Scot, even if we’d drawn those 2 games we would be out of sight by now, not to mention if we had of won, united have being really lucky since Christmas, I do take solace in the fact that we are still developing as a team, couple more additions and the experience of this seasons league and European campaign will really stand to us, Emery is a legend. did ye notice why Emery was having a pop at digne when he was still on the bench? Was it because he wasn’t paying attention to the game?

I read a good stat on Twitter (and I haven't spotchecked it so don't shoot the messenger) that when Villa beat Arsenal we went 8 points clear of United and since then United have been on a "resurgence" and Villa have hit a "rough patch" or "blip" - Yet, here we are, 8 points ahead of them still! For me United are in a false position, I've no idea how they won so many games, things can change of course but if we can get all 3 points against Luton and City beat United (as most would expect) then I find it very hard to see them leapfrogging us? We'd be 11 points clear with 11 games to play, given our goal difference United would need to win 4 more games that us during the last 11 matches! In other words, next weekend could be massive in the race for Top 4 or 5!

Great win, bit of a sticky patch either side of half time but we reacted well and the 4th goal killed of the Forrest comeback, I'm hoping Torres was only taken off as a precaution cause we are so much better with him in the team, chambers is not at the races, lots of positives today and I'm well happy with the performance and the result, 2 negatives for me, cash again our weakest link, constantly playing players onside he just can't seem to hold that line, and lastly great 2 goals from Doug but I'd really like to see him being stronger in the tackle, gives up possession way to easily at times. some results going our way is another plus today it looks like top 6 is in the bag now it's just how high we can stay.
big shout out to Gary Neville and his united boys putting us under pressure 😂😂😂

Missed the 1st half Whack as was booking in hotel in Fuetaventura managed to watch 2nd half we looked OK to be fair apart from the 1st 5 mins of 2nd half plenty of Villa out here which is always great to see and when Fulham scored their 2nd the place emptied onwards and upwards keep the faith guys

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Feb 2024 19:20:17
We made them look like league 2 for the first 48 mins then switched off for the corner, really good first half though, Torres coming off seemed to have us shaken but once we got the 4th it was game over, Bailey Doug and Ollie were class in the first half. normal service resumed at villa park, time to push on now with positive results, beat spurs and we are laughing.

Barring a disaster, Fulham have helped us to be pretty much nailed on for top 5 in my opinion.
For us, Bailey was immense yet again, hopefully nobody tries to cynically take him out for the end of the season because I think he's the differencebetween Champions League and Europa.
I was impressed with Chambers considering his lack of minutes this season but it was chalk and cheese with and without Torres.
Cash nearly got some praise from me until he forgot what an offside trap was yet again. He's played under Unai long enough to know better and he can easily see across the whole line.
Not saying they had bad games but I do wish Mcginn and Luiz would try not to play like they can take on everybody sometimes. They look great with a well timed pirouette but they put us in trouble a few times today by overdoing it. I'd rather they lose it trying a worldie pass than just running into people.

Flights to Amsterdam selling out fast and really expensive around the days leading up to the game.Anyone know how many tickets we get and when they are on sale.

Could have hoped for a better draw than Ajax, probably the worst of the teams we could have gotten.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2024 15:29:28
I don’t think we need to worry unduly Brighton dealt with them in the group stages, they are something like 5th or 6th in the Eredivisie and in the last 6 games they have won only 2 and have conceded at least 2 goals in each of those 6 games. They are not the side they once were.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2024 17:32:54
All of the teams are beatable but I'd prefer getting a team like Ludogrets now and getting Ajax or Olympiakos in the final.
A bit like West Ham against Fiorentina, it looks a bit better when you officially win it against a more prestigious team.

Liverpool v Luton Town - A Quick Liverpool Perspective

The 'Watkins dilemma'. Ollie is a good guy, a good player, if we aspire to win things we can't rely on 1 striker, we can't not have another quality striker because we don't want to upset Ollie, shouldn't strikers be pushing each other for that 1 spot? That's how you become successful.

We obviously need a back up striker, but do we want 1 who's happy to get '15 mins' every other game? I personally think we'd be better with 2 up top, or a 9 and a false 9, or a 9 and a No10. Without repeating myself lol, Jonathan David is the guy for me, 1 year left on his contract come the summer so there's a deal to be done there, there'll be competition for him but that only shows that he'd be an asset to whoever he goes to.

Next season (or part of this) we'll have Mings, Buendia back, we'll have a better squad to pick from, only thing missing is that quality 2nd striker, the potential is there with Duran but we should be in the market for starters, we're back in the place a club our size should be, we have an exceptional manager, fantastic owners, it's exciting times ahead

I agree Allstar, I think we are 3 players away from being a side that will be able to compete with the so called big six. A striker as you say to challenge Ollie, we can argue over the who (my preference is and always has been Patrick Schick) but someone who can push Ollie is a must. A right back again to challenge Matty Cash who isn’t as bad as some on here would have you believe but is inconsistent. The lad from Leverkusen Frimpong looks a really good player quick, a good crosser of the ball and scores goals as well. Finally a back up keeper as Olsen isn’t good enough, I’ve read somewhere that Kelleher at Liverpool may be available come the end of the season if that is true we should be all over that. The problem I think we will face is that to comply with FFP will mean that to buy 3 quality players will mean we need to sell one of our star players to generate the necessary funds as our income streams aren’t sufficient to sustain us spending £100 million plus on new recruits so we will need to balance how we improve the squad without weakening the first XI which will be tricky I think.

Sadly I think Dougie will be sold. Bought for 15m sell him for 80m and hope we can find some cheaper gems.

22 Feb 2024 09:44:07
I agree Bucky but not on the figure, Doug is worth every bit as much as rice, I know he’s not English but prices keep inflating so 12 months after rice move for 105 I think we should have no problem getting 100 for him we just have to play hardball, I really hope if he does go that it’s to Madrid or Barcelona or even psg…
Then we have to talk about a replacement, we probably don’t want to spend more than 30ish so who would you guys buy?

I always fancied Frank Anguissa, was it Fulham or Brighton he had a season on loan with, he had a stellar season for the year he was was there.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2024 15:37:56
I think it will be Luiz who is sacrificed and I agree the fee should be at least what West Ham got for Declan Rice, but I would rather he go to Arsenal I’d ask for Tierney, and ESR in part exchange plus a cash adjustment and I’d use that to go for Neves. I’d then look to sell Digne and probably Ramsey try to sign the right back, forward and goalkeeper we need.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2024 17:11:32
We just signed a goalie LOTM from Down under

22 Feb 2024 17:49:30
The only arsenal players I’d take in exchange that they realistically part ways with are Jorginho and trossard, they can keep their injury prone bench warmers.
Mitoma is another player we should be looking at if a reasonable deal could be made with Brighton.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2024 22:22:34
Wouldn’t take Jorginho or Trossard, Jorginho too old and slow, and when we have Diaby and Bailey why Trossard? But as usual it’s all about opinions, and I am sure Emery will have his own targets probably from La Liga.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2024 11:24:31
True mate, I was thinking trossard plays on the left unlike Bailey or Diaby and Jorginho controls the ball well in midfield and like emery’s style he can slow play right down pretty well. neither would be my first choices of players to buy, I was just thinking of arsenal players. your right though I’d imagine Emery would raid la liga.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2024 19:43:54
With Kamara being out for a long while then if Dougie was to go it’d have to be top dollar money for him. Wed then need 2 midfielders. The names I’d throw in are Pauhlihna and Koopermeiners. There’s probably players Emery has his eye on and probably a lot cheaper than them 2. Maybe we’ll get lucky and some Saudi team will come in for Dougie for more than we could dream of getting and then the sky’s the limit 🤷🏼‍♂️

Koopmeiners is a really good shout right age and although a defensive midfielder he has an eye for a goal, 7 goals and 3 assists in 21 games in Seria A is non too shabby. Although i think we would probably be looking at a fee north of £50 million to buy him.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2024 08:56:23
I reckon we'll get 16 points from our remaining games. Don't think it'll be enough for 4th. Maybe just about hang onto 5th. Hope I'm wrong and we get more but can't see it.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2024 15:10:14
I think we will get a minimum of 22 🤞
