A frustrating evening at Villa Park - as usual.
Unlikely to be your MOTM
So, make that one win in 12 league encounters at Villa Park.
Difficult game to define. Attempting to digest that first half is even harder.
A point gained or two points dropped? Following a second half in which we were dominant, I would lean toward the later. Still, we were fortunate not to trail at halftime. A truly baffling opening 45 minutes. I know we were missing a handful of key pieces, but where was the verve, the urgency?
Nevertheless, a point a Villa Park is not to be overlooked. It is more than we came away with following last year's fixture after all.
