There was a moment in the second half when Conor Hourihane had a brilliant chance to make it 3-1 and then probably see off the rest of the match without the usual stress of hanging on. We all love Jonathan Kodjia at the Villa and want him to score lots of goals, but the end result is more important to the Villa cause rather than your teammates confidence.
Anyways, I’m not having a go at you Conor, but the next time you get a wonderful chance to put your boot laces through the football ball and then possibly score the winning goal, then do so man! And it was on your left as well! It wasn’t as if Kodjia was having a bad match, in fact, everyone on the field of play today played very well, except for Keinan Davis unfortunately. I don’t know if he’s coming back of an injury or something, but he just wasn’t at the races today, so I’ll leave it at that.
John Terry scored his first goal for the Villa today, well done son! Just outside the Villa box Terry had got himself on the ball as he was approaching the centre circle, and you could clearly hear the Fulham fans boo him loudly. A minute or so later, he put it in the back of the net, and then proceeded to give it back to the Fulham fans. I got no problem with that! But the man in the black had to have a word in his ear about it. Let’s try not to knock all the fun out of football hey!
But my man of the match today was Sam Johnstone. He made a game winning save directly after Hourihane should have scored for us, and for that one save, I made him my man of the match. Like I said, everyone played very well today and the match was very enjoyable. But I must give huge credit to Alan Hutton for filling in for Neil Taylor at left back. El Mohamdy seems to have replaced Hutton at right back, and one thing you can count on Hutton for is? Not feeling sorry for himself and just getting on with it, well done Al.
By the way, this isn’t football related, but I’ve just got myself into a little venture! And with the help from a gentleman whom I found on the Internet, I’m hoping to learn from his vast knowledge of his chosen field, and then hopefully succeed in it myself. I’m really excited about this, and I’ll keep you all updated with how I’m doing, but for now, it will remain a secret what it is.
