If I was giving the Fulham team talk, I would be telling my attackers to target the space behind Villa's backs. I think Bruce is filling the midfield a bit more to deny the opposition the space between our lines, but unless we learn to cover our disappearing wing backs there's going to be too much dangerous space left yet again.

We're not getting the right service to our front men by the sound of it. We seem quite comfortable though. Fulham have had more possession but it's mostly tippy tappy stuff in their own half, they will need to go up a gear if they want to win this one. That could help us.

Got to love the impossibility of getting coverage of the Championship.

I'm lucky that my local station covers us on DAB and fm most games. The strange thing about listening without pictures is that I tend to create an image which probably doesn't represent what's actually happening.

Stats tell a similar story to the Reading game:

Jedinak is coming off for McCormack. That's a positive substitution.

Villa sound as though they're on top, with a number of chances going begging.

C'mon Villa!

The commentators are saying that if Fulham win this it would have to be a smash and grab! That makes a mockery of the stats.

We sound dangerous at the moment.

Little possession but most of the chances it seems. The picture being conjured in my mind is of Route One football but with our players that's probably the best option.

Westwood got a frosty reception when he came on and gave the ball away.

A deserved win .... bring on the Blues!

Get in!!!! back to back wins is massive for us, Kodja on a scoring run. Positive substitutions, playing for 90 minutes rather than just the first half, what a difference having a decent manager makes!! UTV :Yes

I'm celebrating with a Chinese takeaway. It might include a Park's platter Jim, because I've got to nip into Redditch. cheers

It was a cracking goal from Kodjia too. Good cross leading to a great scissor kick.

It seems clear that for the moment we're going to give up "tippy tappy" possession in exchange for more meaningful possession. This will hopefully make us more focussed on the counter, if we continue to get a dozen shots at goal out of having the ball only one third of the time, it could work well in this transitional stage. When we've dominated possession previously our shape goes and players lose their discipline.

I think Bruce has decided to build the discipline and off the ball abilities of the team first. We have been sorely lacking on those for a long time.
