I watched the game (a rare event). Liverpool were thoroughly average to disappointing, solid performance from Villa. Result reflected the match.

Ouch to Liverpool, not the start I expected from them.

I'm not sure it did. Liverpool weren't brilliant, but an OG, a penalty, Liverpool hitting the post...

Maybe I went a little far there, but I still think it was a deserved Villa win. The team played well and Liverpool either wasted or at least didn't make the most of their chances - and didn't make enough clear opportunities in the first place. The penalty and the header were Liverpool not defending well enough and Villa putting the ball between the sticks.

Damn, now I'm getting even more pessemistic for thursday again. I hoped Villa would get a solid pounding by Liverpool so they'd put all their attention to the league.

Villa weren't especially good, aside from Friedel. Their goal was battered for most of the match, but an og, a set-piece and a penalty gave them a good win. That's football. If Benayoun's effort found the net in the first minute, it's a different match.

^ A set-piece 90 seconds into 60 seconds of added time!

Hey as the 4th official told Rafa. "It's a minimum of a minute of injury time, not an actual minute."

Next time Reina won't waste time by shouting at the ref for what was a clear corner. Liverpool has always been easy to expose from set pieces during Rafa's reign.

Sounds like some pretty nasty crowd trouble at Upton Park tonight. Millwall hooligans and idiots *sigh* I hope it doesn't get too horrific West Ham are having a terrible time of it this last week or so.

Not actually true at all, despite what Sky Sports like to tell their viewers.

In the last year or so we have looked more vulnerable, but that's more to do with replacing players like Hyypia, Sissoko, Hamann, Riise and Crouch with Skrtel, Mascherano, Lucas, Insua and Benayoun. We don't have a great deal of height in the side, which does make it easier to beat us with high balls into the box. The zonal marking system is not to blame.

Let's not just blame Milwall fans. It takes two, and Hammers aren't exactly shrinking violets.

There are suggestions it was arranged, which is distressing. The last thing we need is a return of the ICF and the Bushwackers.

I cudn't believe how many pundits said Liverpool were going to win the title or get really close again. Looking at the players you lost and what you brought in, the squad size or should I say overall quality is quite shocking compared to what you've had in recent years. Your first 11 is a solid one but everyone gets injuries and I just don't buy the likes of Insua, Lucas, Babel, N'Gog etc can help you win anything...

Glen Johnson price tag is a joke only beaten by Lescott's tag, the boy is good going forward but is far too easy to get pass when it comes to defending. Alonso leaving was the last nail in the coffin to any PL bid and now I think your the team that are suspectable to losing your top 4 place like in 2005 though I still expect you to finish 4th.

That makes Luke and Butch sad.

I'm not going to blame Millwall entirely, but from what I've read this morning there were large groups of Millwall "supporters" without tickets attacking West Ham supporters indiscriminately.

At this point, the only way to resolve this is to punish the club. Not financially, that never does any good. Both West Ham and Millwall should be thrown out of the competition now and once an investigation has been conducted the club whose supporters are to blame should receive a severe points deduction.

I agree, throw the clubs out. I wouldn't be averse to some games without spectators for both clubs too.

People take their kids to see these clubs. It's despicable behaviour.
