great to see the spirit back in the Rs but shame its taken so long.
Should have won had the chances but just dont have that clinical instinct.
Cant understand why the defence just dont believe in each other-their goal was given to them!!
Mackie..can I add any more,greta spirit and led the way
I still have the faith and think that if we keep this spirit we can survive

Mackie needs to get more fitness. He was running out of energy towards the end :-) Yes there was some more fight to the team, but really, what else could we expect. The problem, however, is not the inability to score, which we all know about but the slowness of the passing. This is what put me to sleep with the Sunderland game (and that was at 7 in the morning). Villa must have seen the midweek game as they new exactly what was happening and took advantage of it. Still do not like either Bosingwa or SWP, but today they had some good points. Taarabt was poor in the first half and I actually thought he may have been subbed at the break. Still, his one real effort towards the left corner post in the first half was something to remember. As we all asked with MH, what is the story with Ale? Finally, hope Mbia is okay.

Lots to like about the performance but disappointing that all the possession did not yield more scoring chances. With hindsight I wonder if we should have brought on Cisse. For a change we spent a lot of time in the opposition end, and that's what he thrives on.

Under MH, not very good and not very lucky. Under Harry today, good but still not very lucky.

Great performance by Mackie. However, he must cut down on being caught offside

Surprise team selection but 10/10 for effort. Much improved performance from Bosingwa & SWP

Adel poor 1st half but very good 2nd.

On the negative side. What is wrong with Granero? Didn't look interested and rightly taken off.

Shame about the injuries as it upset our rhythm and stopped any chance of Cisse playing off Mackie, which would have been interesting.

With regard to AF lack of pace in the defence is a worry and Mbia & Diakite are much better at getting back. Derry is probably better at holding the position in front of the back four. After Granero's non show recently maybe Ali will get a chance in a more attacking role.

Gary Lineker noted on MoTD that Harry had yet to Light The Blue Touch Paper

Lighting Blue Touch Paper is only relevant if executed before 5th November; it's now 2nd December...

It's Honeymoon period, but this marriage is Quick Wedding, Short Honeymoon, get home and fix the house. We're already boarding Easyjet back to Luton

From Team Selection it seems clear that Harry wants to try out everyone in Match conditions -so we are no closer to finding our best XI or best formation.

Seems to me Cisse couldn't come on because of Diakite's enforced substitution

But where is Faurlin ? - more effective and committed than Granero - not even on the bench.

Ozranger's observation on Mackie's fitness is way off track; try running for 90 minutes, up front, on your own, flat out. He's fit OK

Next up, Wigan away - after which there are 22 games left. Oh me of little faith - let's prepare for relegation, gratefully trouser the parachute payments - and get straight back up.

Well the Mayan 2012 calendar didn't work out - yet; let's hope I'm a similar failure as the Prophet of Doom

Was surprised by the line up.Especially Mackie up front but he was OK. Yet again performance was patchy, Grenaro in particular just spluttering along. V surprised and a bit annoyed to see SWP on from the start,was there no alternative. He was a bit better than before & should have scored with only the goalie to beat. More all round effort, which is to be expected under a new manager,Boswinga in particular was much improved and several times realy put in maximum plus effort.
Tonight is seems that both injured players are OK,what a relief as Mbia & Diakite were our best players. Adel a bit quiet, nelesen ,a rock as usual,Clint Hill ditto.
I was really disappointed with the result as I felt a win was essential not just for the points but for morale ,which will not remain perked up unless that win comes ASAP. beginning to contemplate relegation but really there is still lots of games,we simply need to become a quite different team. easy eh Harry!
On the way home I met a bloke who has been going to matches since 1943..amazing!

Improved performance, getting a little worried about Mbia and Diakite though, both players look like they're one tackle away from either being sent off or injured, especially Mbia who for a big bloke, needs to man up.

mackie diakite ran the show shame we could not get second swp has a problem in front of goal he just cannot finish although hitting the post was unlucky noise around LR was fantastic lets make that noise every week. we lost our thread when mbia and diake went off
