Awful officiating in all 3 top flight matches.
Could have won by 4 or 5 but only scored the one from the spot. Man of the match is tough I voted Matip, Andy and Mane. Onwards and upwards.
Tight game but not surprised by that. Anyone who’d seen rangers in europe or villa since stevie took over knew they’d be tough, tight, and full of gamesmanship. He’ll do well with them
Good result for us.
Three points. That’s all that matters.
It would be brilliant if we didn’t see Stuart Atwell again for the rest of the season.
That was ugly after we scored. But we didn’t concede, kept a clean sheet and that’s 3 points that matters the most when we aren’t thrashing teams. Our flow was hampered a lot by the ref stopping the game for everything. Some scary moments by Alisson as well. All good as long as we ended up winning, but may not always be this lucky.
Hoping Stevie gets points off City and Chelsea. They were stubborn in their defense have to stay.
Our left side’s best game of the season I can remember. With Robertson playing at an immense intensity level even by his standards. Villa’s play deserves as much praise as their time-wasting criticism.
For now just want to say Matip and Fab my MOTM. Can’t decide who to give my 3rd. Hendo or Thiago.
Scrappy at times, ref hasn’t a clue, Ali playing like he had to much to drink, and we’ve lost our ability to drop down a gear.
But it makes for an exciting game.
Fab has an immense game. He’s so vital in our midfield.
Piss’a piss made to look harder than it was
Atwell conned so many times. The standard of reffing in the supposed best league in the world is shocking.
If you start time wasting in the 1st half you should get a red card.
Came for a draw and didn’t get it…
I’ll happily take a 1-0 it’s hardly like our rivals for the title performed any better.
