in unrelated news - does anyone know why villa hired tim sherwood? he has no CV or experience and is obviously just a 4-4-2 man.
villa could easily go down and they might stay there for good. such a shame for an historic club. seriously though, sherwood? what the f**k does he know?
they hired him probably because he managed spurs even though he was awful there too
Well, I don't think anyone other than Sherwood actually wanted that job considering the circumstances.
Pulis was already taken
LVG is clueless

I have to agree seeing how he struggled to get the most of out attacking players this season.

+1
it cant be that hard with the amount of great players you have. just stick to playing your best players.
+3
^ you missed the crucial part: in their best positions
+3
Yeah LVG is TERRIBLE. I hate being in third place especially after Moyes' era. UGH #LVGOUT life is so hard right now
God forbid the players receive any criticism. Everyone bitched about changes and they got it. Herrera playing the whole game, New formation with uses 1 striker giving them more space, 74% possession, 30 shots on goal with 10 on target, 3rd currently in the league. Seriously you guys are really stretching at this point. Today's formation and line up was pretty much what everyone had wanted. We controlled the game but had crap finishing.
+7
not sure if you are being sarcastic..

i will assume you are not:

fans can be so arrogant, and sometimes ignorant. you THINK he is clueless, but really you have no idea what goes into preparation for each game.

in reality i think everyone's under pressure, we all know it would be a disaster not to get CL this season. i think the pressure is getting to everyone especially players. you cant always predict how players will play, how things will go.

what i see is LvG making changes to try and find the right solution. herrera got the start, rooney playing in striker. during the game, he took off di maria at half time and added width by playing adnan on the right, which was the right call in the end.

it doesn't really matter what choices he makes, people will slag him if things don't go perfectly and then call him clueless. he;s not a machine, and he is not one of the xi players on the pitch

i for one think he's doing what is necessary given his experience and the state of our squad. we are under massive pressure, and i think we responded well enough today. we need to get a team settled, and start buillding some chemistry and consistency. if we get that, i think the results will come in our favor. 11 matches to go and we will be in top 4. plenty of changes to come in the summer but i think we are on the right track.
+8
@ Sif- i think they think the real deal is like fifa career mode. As if in reality you can just throw players that look best on paper on a pitch and u control them to victory. There was very little wrong with LVG's performance today and the issues fell on the players. Im sorry but the excuses people are making for Di maria is ridiculous. Asheley Young has been able to adapt to new positions and style of play from 3-5-2, 4-4-2, to 4-2-3-1. How the hell is mr. 60 mil man struggling and we have used him in multiple positions. Some of these issues comes down to the players. Compare how rooney was up there today to when Falcao was up there. Day and night difference
-Rooney as striker and only striker preferably
-Herrera starting
-Real wingers
-Fellaini not in midfield

Bonus would be Rafael being back along with Carrick but oh well.
Yeah, I really miss last year.
Last year wasn't so bad, I mean we broke many records, including most crosses in a game and not one of them led to a goal haha oh last year :3
Some fans are clueless.
+3
Lol @2class4U
My take of the match
1 whoever bought us di maria was new to epl
2 young is adecent player.
3 i hope lvg finally sees rooneys attacking potential and stop using him as cb sweeper!
4 poor wes. Oshea must have been sent off
5 so far a good weekend for us. Lets hope that fool lose and arsenal drop points.
Is your space bar merked bruv?
+1
Nop mate. Its this freakin smart (idiot) phone.
Yeah im posting from an iphone too. Sucks the d!
+1
Pretty lacklustre given we had like 75% of the ball, even before they had a man sent off and almost all the territorial advantage, nearly half the game played in Sunderland's third of the pitch.

The shackles really need to come off, too many players lacking freedom, its too rigid, pedestrian almost, were lacking a cutting edge.

Glad Rooney bagged a couple, keep that man up front, thought young Adnan was good when he came on, looked more like his old self.

Not the response I wanted after Swansea but its the three points that matter, Saints lost too so that's good for us, hopefully City will do us a favour tomorrow at Anfield, hoping for an Arsenal slip up too.
I just hope people ease off Falcao's back for a bit now. Today's game shows that a striker can't score 20 goals a season without very little to no supply from the midfield.
Am i saying that based on today, we should keep him permanently? No, but i feel that if he goes on a scoring run, that option should be definitely considered but at a renegotiated, lower fee.
Also, excuses for ADM are running out. He was simply poor as can be
+2
what excuses? he was very poor today, and rightly dropped at half time.
+1
Falcao has still been poor overall. He did brilliantly to win the penalty, but he'll need to show a lot more than a flash of brilliance once every 10 games if he wants to stay here.

No excuses for Di Maria, he was awful, and rightly taken off at halftime.
+1
falcao still needs his confidence back. he seems to be a sec too slow off the mark and still unused to how physical the game can be. still not convincing though but you can see hes working at it.

adm was pretty bad. freekicks, vision, crossing. januzaj coming on was a relief.
I don't think anyone has made excuses for ADM other than him being played wrongly upfront which is a perfectly valid reason for a poor performance.

What some have rejected is the over the top criticism, hes still got 3 goals and 8 assists in 17 starts in the league this season, not too bad at all.

But he's definitely not playing to his best and was poor today, there is just no need for people claiming he was a total waste of money, the guy is a top top player, give him time, we wont regret it.
+1
Excuses as in 'there's no excuse for that pass late on in the first half to Falcao'
+1
Man, judging a striker when he is being given chances to finish is one thing.
I won't give Falcao much stick because our midfield is not creating any chances for our strikers. How many goals have we had from open play? We just spray the ball wide to the wings and cross into the box.

If we had our midfielders slicing through balls and creating clear chances and had Falcao been missing chances in that case, I would be losing my head too. But I'm not because Falcao is not one of those strikers who can create something from nothing. He is a FINISHER. And we aren't giving him anything to finish.
Thats my take on it.
+2
^ Absolutely agree with you

There's two types of striker, Target Man and Finisher. A striker relies on supply and Falcao, as a Finisher converts half chances. Due to the state of our midfield, what we need least is a Finisher.

What we need is a Target Man which is what Fellaini is there for or Center Forward who can drop back and create chances themselves, which is Rooney's role. Until we fix our midfield, strikers like Falcao isn't going to perform.

The last touch from Falcao, was the first time the midfield actually send the ball into the box to Falcao and he almost converted it.
The pundits from PLTV are right, this team, apart from Rooney, none of our players have the passion and confidence we expect to see. Do something lvg.
+2
mata has the passion,but doesnt get the chance to show it,except on the bench.
herrera definitely has the passion,you can see it in his movements and when he's screaming for the ball.
blind has the passion,why else would he want to play such an important role in defense and attack? the problem is communication and definitely team chemistry..
Agree on herera.he really got desire n should be our starting eleven even when carrick is back.he really doest scare to tackle and hold ball well even his size is not big as any player..
This is LVG. I have read your comment. I will do something.
^ Thank you sir, btw, anyone know where is Januzaj? Haven't seen him for a while.
He's played today. Didn't you see him? Right wing
Do you know who's better than Di Maria?
+1
just boo Evans, as this apperently provides him necessary carbs to not suck anymore
+2
it proved to be vey effective indeed, doesnt look like the same evans in the second half
A win is a win, i'll take the 3 points. although i think our squad of players is still imbalanced.

Anyway what was appalling for me was ADM today too much play-acting (like rolling on the floor 5 rounds for that nudge) or injury, either way should be taken off. poor today.
+1
Satisfied today... not much to complain about. Good balanced formation. There is still room for improvment but atleast we had a few shots on goal, a couple of chances and we looked better going forward. Solid at the back thanks to having both Herrera and Blind in midfield tracking back. Smalling was fantastic good disply from the lad.

Also, Rooney is a striker and maybe he can play CAM but playing him deeper than that is shocking.

Southampton lost so that is good news.
