Go Villa/Fulham!
 
2021-01-20 12:43:32 PM  
Villa can win. Fulham? I think I have a better chance of winning the lottery tonight.
 
2021-01-20 1:21:07 PM  
Grealish with a nice taekwondo takedown turns Walker into a hobbler.
 
2021-01-20 1:27:36 PM  
City is slacking. 25 minutes in and no score?
 
2021-01-20 1:29:34 PM  
and Walker finally subs off 

he gave it his pointless all
 
2021-01-20 1:31:27 PM  
Mings takes a de Brain shot off his face and pretends it didn't hurt.
 
2021-01-20 1:31:50 PM  
Sterling looks like he's dropped 10 lbs. Covid weight loss?
 
2021-01-20 1:33:27 PM  
not enough weight to not block that shot

Sterling pulling a shift on the AVL D.
 
2021-01-20 1:38:04 PM  
Dean Smith will kill Pep if he isn't careful
 
2021-01-20 1:41:19 PM  
I can't in good conscience root for a team coached by anyone named Dean Smith.
 
2021-01-20 1:54:33 PM  
Just got back from errands. Scoreless at the break?  I'm impressed with Villa.
 
2021-01-20 2:11:52 PM  
The Traores should fight all the Mendies.
 
2021-01-20 2:12:07 PM  
Nice attack started by the Villa keeper, just one too many City players to get past
 
2021-01-20 2:12:40 PM  
Traore just needed some air on that strike.
 
2021-01-20 2:14:01 PM  
Bar makes a huge save
 
2021-01-20 2:19:16 PM  
KDB leaves looking hurt. Maybe by his slip and fall, maybe hurt by that human wrecking ball, Grealish.
 
2021-01-20 2:20:23 PM  
Wow.  Jesus could not sort his feet out to get the shot away.

Very fast paced game.
 
2021-01-20 2:21:22 PM  
Least boring nil nil in a while.

medius: Least boring nil nil in a while.


No kidding.  I'm on the edge of my seat.
 
2021-01-20 2:22:10 PM  
That was a mess
 
2021-01-20 2:22:40 PM  
City spraying misses all over the place like a drunk man trying to hit the toilet.
 
2021-01-20 2:22:54 PM  
Gundogan can't finish.  His wife knows this first hand.
 
2021-01-20 2:23:50 PM  
Luis sends it right to Ederson.
 
2021-01-20 2:24:59 PM  
with a bit of a dive, AVL earn a dangerous free kick
 
2021-01-20 2:25:03 PM  
FFS.  3 on 2 and you neither shoot nor cross.
 
2021-01-20 2:25:23 PM

It hasn't disappointed at all, but I didn't expect these two to leave us wanting.
 
2021-01-20 2:26:16 PM  
that was a poor pass from citeh there

Me neither.  On paper, City wins easily, but this is a well defended game on both sides.
 
2021-01-20 2:26:56 PM  
Great sliding challenge to win the ball.
 
2021-01-20 2:27:23 PM  
Calls for hand ball.
 
2021-01-20 2:27:47 PM  
Jon Moss looking to book someone
 
2021-01-20 2:28:15 PM  
That second deflection looks like a hand ball to me.
 
2021-01-20 2:28:33 PM  
the edging continues
 
2021-01-20 2:28:37 PM  
Villa is defending like a fiend
 
2021-01-20 2:28:59 PM  

harleyquinnical: Calls for hand ball.


Not convinced it hit his hand and had it, it would've been a bit harsh to give a penalty there with where the hand was.

City should've scored there
 
2021-01-20 2:29:13 PM  
Gundo has a ball on his feet 2 yards from goal ... nope
 
2021-01-20 2:29:15 PM  
Mings with the latest block.
 
2021-01-20 2:29:15 PM  
a question that has been often asked of me comes to mind:

how did he not score there?
 
2021-01-20 2:29:40 PM  
City cannot score from point blank range.
 
2021-01-20 2:31:08 PM  
Foden's working his arse off
 
2021-01-20 2:32:08 PM  
Foden showing off some great moves.

And offside relieves the pressure.  Sterling relieved of duty for Mahrez.
 
2021-01-20 2:32:17 PM  
Afternoon all. I forgot City were playing. Villa hanging on so far, I see.

You have missed a great defensive matchup today.  This is a nail biter of a match.
 
2021-01-20 2:33:20 PM  
Ederson with a shot on goal
 
2021-01-20 2:35:12 PM  
Perfect sliding block there
 
2021-01-20 2:35:19 PM  

whither_apophis: Ederson with a shot on goal


That was rather surprising, considering the weather.
 
2021-01-20 2:35:39 PM  
That had OG written all over it
 
2021-01-20 2:35:57 PM  
Diaz prevents Ramsey from an effort on target.
 
2021-01-20 2:36:07 PM  
Another case of fumble foot
 
2021-01-20 2:36:41 PM  

whither_apophis: Another case of fumble foot


Looked like my golf swing that.
