Mina, it would have been 5-0 had it not been for him.  has a big heart and adds steel to the side.  i love this guy.  

Don't disagree he had a decent game but 5-0? We were far and away the better side even though Gomes had a stinker, we had far more chances than them. One of those days sadly; shit happens.

Iwobi. Dove more in his cameo then any player on the pitch. 

Mina first half, but second half he was like a schoolboy robbed of his dinner money. Not sure how so many have voted him MoM... shows how poor our second half was.

Morgan had a few real class touches... the his rest of the 90% he was he usual ghost.

Hard to pick mom there. Probably iwobi.

some serious questions will be asked of Silva now. One deflected goal in three games against poor opposition. The build up play is so slow it’s easy to play against. They just put men behind the ball and we don’t have the players to break them down. Sig, Gomes and schneiderlin midfield trio of zero pace and two crabs. Like Martinez all over again. What on earth do they do in training?

Not sure why everyone is going for Mina. Wesley ran the game for villa because he stuck to Keane all game. Maybe the managers fault but Mina should have took the lead and went against him and let Keane mop up. Digne for me. Should be captain. The guy is not going to be playing for us next season I guarantee that unless we fucking start being serious

I agree. People keep on mentioning this project and the time we must give but being Everton, we have to sell our best players at some point and digne will Probably be off unless we improve drastically and look serious threats to the top 6. He’s a class act is digne. A champions league full back

He’s been a champions league fullback with Roma, PSG and barca. He is coming into his prime now. Let’s use the best team in the prem as an example. Would he get in city’s team over their left back? Yes he would

He is and is my probably my favourite player and our greatest asset right now. However I still don’t think he was better than Mina today. To be fair Digne didn’t do a lot wrong but his crossing could have been better and that’s why Mina edged it for me.

Mina had a good game. The one time he went against Wesley they had a square up and I like that. That’s what we are missing.  But he should have swapped with Keane . It was obvious way what villa were doing 

that is a coachs tactical decision, you don't just manage the team yourself in game and tell players to swap with you.  he'd be on the outs after that.  ludicrous

Also was Wesley deliberately targeting himself towards Keane with instructions from his manager, because they felt Keane was the weaker of the two and they would get more joy up against him, which in fairness worked because every time he came into contact with Mina he had less effect on the game.

It’s an opinion Palfy, there is no right or wrong. You watch the game and form an opinion. You do know which thread your in don’t you haha?

But I honestly thought our defence was bullied. Keane all match, Mina for the second half. Stood off from headers again and slow to react. 

Iwobi  came on and made things happen. Came out closest to scoring and set up a few decent attacks.

And Palfy I’m disappointed in you. If you knew their managers tactics and instructions before hand.... why the hell didn’t you leak them to our club??????

Call yourself a supporter, yet you don’t share vital inside information!

100% agree with you on Keane he struggles against big strong CFs who put it about, and Iwobi showed enough in is 25 minutes that he should be a starter, also I would like to see Kean start a game so he can feel his way into it from the off. 

But normal service has to resume and our opinions on Mina’s performance are polls apart, thank fuck for that it would be boring otherwise 😎

I’m hoping they both get a start in the cup. Let him build some confidence and grab a goal.

Really impressed with Iwobi. A front four of him, kean, Bernie and charly would be nice 

That’s what I think we need against Lincoln.

perfect analysis by Phil McNulty

Urgency and threat are hardly words you'd associate with Gana and his two assists a season. Most on here were calling for Sigurdssen to be dropped and also said Gomes had his worse game for us. 

Tbf attacking wise we've had this problem since last year and I was moaned at for saying we were lucky the opposition was poor and that our players had been clinical.

This sums it up perfectly for me, lost the midfield again on Friday night and paid the consequences

 

McGinn is really impressing me - his energy/engine is incredible and he’s got a bit of magic too.

Dare I say, our midfield needs Delph in it.

Gana’s not about assists as such. His main quality was regaining possession when the opposition weren’t set. This allows us to catch teams. Too often, on Friday night, we were faced with 9 of their players and a goalkeeper to get past... this is a Villa team who must have the weakest full-backs in the league - we hardly exposed them all game - part of this is due to slow turnover allowing them to get into position comfortably.

Bingo!! Gana’s high pressing started plenty of counter attacks, all I ever hear about that was he is out of position. No, he’s winning the ball and getting us high up the pitch when the opposition weren’t expecting it.

I think the most damning things McNulty said are the ones that we still have control over, which revered to DCL and Silva Gana is irrelevant now he’s gone that’s in the past we need to focus on the future.

Awww crap! Does this mean I have to agree with you.... or can I spin it some other way, that makes me able to agree without agreeing?

If you still can’t see what Gana brought to the side there really is no point trying to talk football with you

Please tell me the difference between the draw against Palace with Gana and the one without him?

We had 65% possession...

Again someone putting down a result over 90+minutes to the performance of one player out of 28. It's too ridiculous a premise to reply to.

I've said for over a year the spine of Keane, Gana, Sigurdssen was too weak, even questioned Bernard. But beyond the players people should really be questioning the man who picks them. These tactics are simply not good enough.

Exactly, 65% possession playing in front of an organised Villa team - far too easy for them to defend.

Teams ‘set traps’, giving the opposition possession and nicking it when they are in their attacking shape - this is where Gana is/was priceless.

You'd have an argument if we managed to break those teams down last year but Gana's two meaningless assists don't give much weight to him helping nor the results.

It’s not to do with the assists though (for the umpteenth time!) - he regained possession to start attacks when teams weren’t/aren’t set - that was/is his main quality.

Winning possession is pointless if you then don't do anything with it. He stopped more of our attacks with his own passing by killing the tempo than any opposition player could dream of.
