    My Villa mate text me at half time. "Glad you've got Bamford rather than a proper striker"

    Text him back at full time, "yes, he may have struggled against a decent CB, luckily you've got Mings"

    Best part about last night was Mings should have had another yellow and been sent off for pulling Bamford off the deck by his shirt. Within the next 18 minutes Paddy had smashed a hattrick and Mings was involved or should have in all 3

    everyone watching, even Villa fans I've seen quoted on another forum, were astounded Mings got away with that, the look too he got from Martinez. Glad we beat them with 11 on the pitch, otherwise you know what Smith would have come out with. Notice Terry did a quick disappearing act at the final whistle, ****er.

    Did anyone hear the Beckford interview with Phil Hay yesterday where Becks says Olly Watkins is a friend of his? Becks said he had discussions with Watkins over the Summer and it was expected that Watkins would sign for Leeds, but things fell through. I imagine it will have been about wages, but I thought we had enquired about him but didnt realise it was a possibility. He would have been sat on the bench anyway

    <laugh> don't you just love karma<party> I don't want to jinx Bamford, but I thought he came of age last night. I've been critical of him for a while now, but I'm genuinely delighted for him. <ok>

    At half time I was also kicking off about Rodrigo because I thought he should have scored one ut spurned it. But the 2nd half I thought Rodrigo was giving a masterclass in passing and creating space and chances. He took it up another level, and in fairness when he was replaced by Pablo we were not as effective.

    According to WhoScored, Rodrigo took four shots of which one was on target, played two key passes, had a pass accuracy of 90.6%, took 51 touches, attempted one dribble, made two tackles and one clearance, and put in one cross.

    Getting Bamford angry backfired on Mings greatly, ha ha! A fantastic hat trick from Bamford and Mings should have had a second yellow for man handling him!

    Keep reading that viewers/fans are determined to not subscribe to PPV matches as they refuse to give Sky/BT more money.

    Not sure they quite understand the concept as the PPV money goes to the PL for matches which are outside the agreed broadcasting contracts. The PL generously allowed free viewing of these matches for the remainder of last season (after lockdown) and also for the beginning of this season. However once the return of fans on 1st October was delayed could they really continue to give away free matches/content infinitum when they themselves are receiving no match day income ?

    So is having the ability to watch all your clubs matches on TV a good thing ? Take last nights classic encounter form Villa Park, normally the only way to have watched us live would have been to attend the match (very difficult given low away ticket allocation) or watch an illegal stream. Personally I thought having the option to watch a quality legal broadcast was a massive plus and whilst I think the price point is too high, making all matches available to fans has to be the way forward.

    Guess we're back to the old argument...some want to support/watch our club for free and leave those who subscibe to Sky/BT and/or attend matches to pick up the tab.

    It was cheaper than a ticket at Villa Park would have been, even if you could have purchased one.

    Over the last few seasons I've been to quite a few beamback matches at ER and paid £10 per person.

    Would much rather be able to watch games with family at home...no travel costs and cheaper beer <ok>

    I have Sky sports on Virgin media, but because BT and Virgin fell out over money, I couldn't get BT PPV or else I'd have paid for it. Ive BT sports on Now tv just in case they show more games on their non PPV channels. I can understand the point supporters are trying to make, but like yourself I'd pay if it meant that I could watch the Whites. It's just a pity that the clubs can't offer a type of TV match season ticket, so the money or most of it would go to the club.<ok>

    I pay £108 a month to Sky and that’s just TV no phone or Internet with them. Last night my choice was a straight one, an illegal stream or not watch them. I could cancel my Sky and watch everything via the IPTV stream but I don’t, I continue to subscribe to Sky as the quality and 4K content is superior.

    No way would I pay an extra £15 to watch a game, if Sky offered me an option to not have the ability to watch any football games apart from Leeds I’d take it.

    My gripe is yes, Sky sports shows 140 live games but I’m only interested in 38 of them. If there was a way to follow just your own team but no other games I’d be in.

    Ultimately though that's what the so called Big 6 want.

    Bringing an end to collective bargaining and a share of the spoils to all with each club keeping it's own income. Whilst we would fare better than most it would still destroy the League as a compettion.

    The answer in my opinion is to show all games under the current Sky/BT/Amazon arrangements but at an increased contractual cost to them as they would have more content to air.

    This would mean increased revenue for the PL clubs paid for by a small increase in subscriptions.
