    Is there a site that sums up the difficulty of remaining schedules? Doing it manually is fun and all but I’m inherently lazy.

    Villa? No, and they lost today so promotion took a hit.

    So, 1 game for $170 million...no pressure on Villa this weekend. My concern is Villa being able to score...I think they can hold up in the mid-field and if El Mohamaday is back they should be solid on the back line. Hopefully Grabban can find one somewhere. Disappointed ESPN continues to put games that used to be free on ESPN+. UTV!!!

    So, it was the other outside back injury to Taylor that hurt...not sure what Hutton and Anomah were doing on that goal.

    Going up a man actually hurt the momentum...the game became a real mess after that, credit to Fulham. Villa’s passing accuracy went down with less defenders on the field.

    Since injuries and time wasting never seem to equal added time it was odd to see Hourihane sit there for two minutes with a leg injury. They should have dragged him off and subbed immediately.

    Speaking of subs, they came too late and putting 3 more attackers on the field only served to disrupt any organization they had...no wonder they looked more confused than enthused, they had a group out there that likely has never been on the field together at the same time.

    And, when trailing a goal in a game worth $170million, why foul at a more frequent pace?

    There were times Fulham didn’t need to waste time, Villa were doing it for them.

    I’d sell Grealish to a side in Spain or France where his style fits better. He absorbs more hits than an NFL running back and the refs don’t protect him enough. Intentional or not, the leg stomp was at least a yellow. When the other team can hinder your best player by having 5-6 different players take runs at him in the first 20 minutes with no support from the ref then it will be the tactic employed by all teams.

    Did not happen. And they had a man advantage too...

    As implied above, the man advantage killed them. That is, until then, Fulham were still trying to play, and struggling at that. Once Odoi got sent off, Fulham went into proper 'kill it' mode, and Villa went from threatening to not getting a sniff.

    Despite preferring the latter, Fulham were well worth their victory; and Villa stay down on merit.

    Congrats Millers.

    It will be very interesting to see what Villa's squad looks like next year. Between loans and FFP restrictions, so many key players will certainly not be back.

    Indeed, they put a lot of stock in going up this year and will be younger and less expensive next year.
