    What should have been said at the after match press conference.

    Press. Marcelo what was the secret in keeping Jack Grealish quiet in the second half.?


    Marcelo. We had a pocket sown into Stuart Dallases trousers at half time, so he could keep Jack there. <laugh>

    I feel sorry for the Villa stretcher bearers getting up and down every 5 minutes

    Most goals in football are scored in transition, but for a side that dominates possession and builds up from the back, we look much more dangerous on the break.

    it’s sides like wolves who are well organised and park the bus with dangerous players on the break that will trouble us more.. the sides that come to play we’re looking really good on the break against

    maybe when we play ‘park the bus’ sides we should just give them the ball.

    So Leicester are probably our most difficult opponents in this League ?

    Thing is, if we'd gone if front against Wolves you'd have fancied us to win. As shown last night the first goal is vital to our chances and even though we won at a canter had Grealish finished either of their best opportunities at 0-0 it could have been very different.

    I think having no fans is benefiting our players at the moment, specially Bamford. Apart from maybe 25 minutes against City the team are playing without fear. They are playing without the pressure or expectation of the previous two seasons.

    I enjoyed Bielsas first season as it shocked me at how he transformed us. I enjoyed the second better but I did pile on the expectation and this third season I’m enjoying the most.

    I’m enjoying it as I see it as building the foundation for the future, I want wins but as I see us playing for mid table a defeat doesn’t leave me feeling like we have blown anything. I’m realising now how important it will be to have Bielsa in charge next season.

    yes and agree

    first goal against means the counter attacking sides have to get more ambitious


    I was stating the obvious (as usual) with my post. It’s harder to break down packed defences than exploit space on the counter. I think that perhaps you need exceptional individual talent to unlock packed defences, we maybe lack the real top quality compared to some others to do that regularly.

    on the break teamwork and numbers count, which maybe is more us. My point was really about how good we’ve looked on the break.

    Enjoying catching up on this. What a tremendous result, can you believe how close the club came to getting rid of Klich. Ever present under Bielsa except for the game where he was nursing his massive title / promotion hangover. Dreading the day Bielsa calls it a day.

    Just watched 20 odd minutes of Manure v Chelski, and if they both play like that I cannot fkg wait, they are sh1te, that fat fck has spent quarter of billion quid this season and they look well average, as for him up front for Manure he wants to get some of his free fkg school meals down him and get some energy, can’t fkg wait.

    Was just going to post something similar. We don’t need to show either of these any respect, impose our game on them.

    Wouldn’t swap swap any of our wingers for Dan James, or any of our CB’s for square head.
