Personally I feel that a 4-0 beating was more than a little harsh wasn't it!!!
But Aston Villa had seven attempts on goal and hit the target which each of them, scoring four, not a bad percentage is it!

I certainly feel you guys can feel hard done by in terms of the scoreline. Penalty was the right decision I think, but not the sending off. After that you were chasing and we always look capable of scoring on the break.

i was hoping this one could end in a draw as it would have suited pompey nicely... i listened to some of the phone ins last night, most blackburn fans were saying you dominated the game - villa were saying it was complete rubbish and they did? whats the true score on this then fellas...

It was pretty even pompeyrug as the stats above show. the last 2 goals Villa scored were courtesy of us piling forward. Villa deserved to win but the scoreline was far too flattering.

An even game indeed, MG. 4-0 was flattering. However, I have the report that VF Villa have done, and it I think I was watching a different game. However, which ever glasses you wear, be it blue and white or claret and blue (i apologise for swearing on a family site! :-) ), it was a good game of football. A team going forward trying to get something from a game, and a very good counter attacking team.

I think you have to say that for periods of the game both teams had domination. The 1st 5 minutes we had 70% possession, and then the next 20 you had loads of chances. After that it was more even. Second half was a joke because of the sending off - gave us more space to pass the ball around without really penetrating loads and loads. Then you were chasing the game and we just broke a few times, scoring on 2. It's what we are good at and it actually helped us. Hope this comes across as a balanced view of what I saw?!
