A brilliant performance from the team, who really put Stoke on the back foot right from the whistle. The front men moved the ball around quickly, and Joaquin terrorised the right flank, whipping in some very dangerous balls into the box.

An impressive performance from the our new signing Dante. He was solid in defence and made some superb passes as well. A great signing indeed and i look forward to more of these performances in the future. I was equally impressed with Ji Dong-Won who played well and seems to be a great prospect for the future!

Manager Views


We started very strongly in the first half and Aston Villa didnt know how to cope. Before they knew it we were 3-0 up. The second half was a completely different story, and Aston Villa came at us hard, and soon they forced the error and made us concede. But we held strong and were able to see out the match

Manager Views


Kadlec has been brilliant lately, grabbing himself another 2 goals. I also fielded another 2 new signings, Griezmann and Ross Barkley, both of whom were decent but a little quiet if truth be told. Hopefully they'll grow into the team and put in some better performances!

Advice


Does anyone have any advice on how to get the best out of Griezmann and Ross Barkley? Training and role wise?

Wow, a stunning performance from the boys today. We created so many chances that im surprised that we only slotted home 3 goals! We passed the ball quickly and moved well. We were a joy to behold today! Great performance!
How much did it cost to buy Ross Barkley? The kid is good enough for anyone.

Manager Views


Lovely stuff at home. Once again we played quick attractive football, and stamped Swansea out of the match. I played some of my second team today, and was duly impressed with their performances. Wickham was brilliant and linked fantastically with Welbeck to create bags of chances. Griezmann was equally sublime down the left creating chances whilst running rings around the defence.
