I am in awe of our tenacity and organisation off the ball. We just continously snuff out threats. Our attack isn't as potent in this league and we have made up for it by just shutting down games. Players and coaches are playing a blinder.

Draw was a fair result overall. I can't wait to see DaSilva in this formation as he could be the difference maker.

Very good result and another strong, spirited performance. We're looking hard to beat. Ref certainly spoiled the flow of the game second half but I liked the fact we got under their skins and their supporters by winning second balls and breaking up play. We are night and day in terms of our game management compared with 2 or 3 years ago.

Still unbeaten, still only two points off the top. Solid in defence, a constant threat in attack. All round an accomplished performance which bodes well for the rest of the season.

What a match!
End to end stuff.
Great football and we stood toe to toe with them.

Glad to see that we’ve now taken the attitude that we take no prisoners.

I thought that Ghoddos had his best game for us, and put in a well deserved shift.

Glad that Ollie wasn’t on the pitch for too long as he really threatened near the end.

The remarkable start continues for our PL adventure!

Enjoyed that....very good performance...
If we can be a bit more clinical with our passing/finishing in the final third im hopeful we can hold our own in this league.

An excellent point to cement a superb start to the season. Villa will be top 10 this season so to go there without our most important player and deservedly draw bodes well.

Huge credit to the back 5 - only conceding 1 goal in 3 games at this level is excellent. Nice to go into the international break unbeaten 💪

In all fairness we 'are' holding our own in this league. Three games against established Premier League teams. Three scored, one conceded, two clean sheets. A really solid and positive start.

It doesn’t affect our goal difference, only Arsenal’s.
Nah. I think Arsenal have resigned themselves to relegation. As title contenders, we could have done without the 5. ;)

Would have taken that all day long pre-match. Great performance overall.

It will be interesting how long we can keep the intensity up, as some of these boys are running themselves into the ground.

Shame Rico missed in the first half, I think he was in 2 minds over placing it or smashing it.

We can't expect much from him for the rest of the season if the reaction of Bryan Mbeumo to it last season is anything to by.
Everybody is different , I had Covid as did my neighbour, I recovered quickly , Him as fit as a fiddle ended up losing a kidney .

You just don’t know how people will react to it. Everyone is different, some breeze through other struggle no matter how fit they are.

note: I’ve just got over COVID, and to be honest almost wanted to get it, as presumed I’d stroll it. im fit and healthy, with no known health issues. I’ve been really ill for about 10 days and only finally feeling better. My daughter (13) also has it and we wouldn’t have even known she’d had it if we didn’t get a PCR test. She is fine.

Decent point today.

A fine performance yielding a very well deserved point. A great start to life in the PL. I'll wager not many would have predicted 5 points after these 3 games. Well played lads!

We looked well in control of that second half and were getting their backs up. Subs from both teams made the game very scrappy and we never regained control. Watkins made a huge difference for them on a break. Great battling performance and I think the attacking quality will come as the season goes on.

We stopped them playing football completely and left them with long balls and transitions.

Great game! We were in complete control in the second half until substitutions threw off our momentum... but they had to be done. Had the opportunity to win the game but a point away is great. Just love to see a bit more anticipation on the 2nd post, but I think we will be fine. Great run by Saman, gave me a bit of his old self vibe which I like a lot! Now I'm sure he's gonna get more running in the national team camp and the 2 games up ahead. We go into the break with our heads held higher than most teams, and I can't wait to smash Brighton!

Top away point that.

Great to see Toney on the score sheet, and Baptiste and Jensen back.

Looking forward to Match of the Day. Problem is, I’m running out of storage on my Sky Q box. Nice problem to have though.

look at the name :-)
Well three games into the season and unbeaten, so fair to say a good start. In all games we’ve looked that we belong in the PL so I’m pleased with that.
If we’d been offered 5 points and only one goal conceded at this stage before the season then I think most would have taken that. Hope the boys come out firing after the break 😁
