  1. I noticed in the last two games both Villa and Everton,had a game plan of rough and crude football.What i mean by that is villa put nine behind the ball and by hook and by crook and many filthy tackles later grabbed a golden point.At a club like Everton and a ground like Goodison the tactics if thats what you can call them is a betrayal of a club of that stature.The grass was long it cut up very quickly just like the battlefield it became.Mirallas should have gone,Barkley shame on you! a young player with many footballing talents,should not be learning the continental diving exploits which made him look a nob.Naismiths attempted career ending luge on noble,and above all the ref. how does he define the off-side rule.Not just that he let things go too far with so many dirty tackles flying about.No wonder our boys lost it i did too.
