Well, I’ve called another one correctly for once and while I’m happy with that point, I’m also disappointed as I think we should have won that.
We had the best of the play overall, created the best chances and the proof of the pudding is that Gollini had very little to do overall.
When we play poorly, it’s easy to point fingers, but I’m seriously struggling to criticise anyone after that.
Westwood even played well and actually tried to move the ball forward quickly.
What a refreshing change is to say that, as although I’ve been one of his biggest detractors, so I’ve never wanted him to actually fail for us.
I’m still not convinced he’s good enough, but tonight he tried to move us forward, which is what any Villa Mid should do.
And then it’s hard to slate anyone, as although the first half was tight, I thought we edged it.
The second half, we ruled even more.
The belief is there now and my opinion says it’s now because we quite simply have a decent manager, who knows this level like the back of his hand.
The fact that I’m somewhat disappointed that we’ve lost this one says it all.
We have no reason to fear ANYBODY in this league and I now fully expect us to make a serious charge for automatic promotion.
Consider Bruce hasn’t got a player in yet and that’s not such a daft statement.
