Aston Villa lose at West Ham on opening day of season

We're not going to think about this match or result too much, it was the first game of the season and we lost. We're going to lose games this season and well, we've got it out of our system.

But it isn't nice to lose and not to a team like West Ham who were just promoted into the league. But we have to take it on the chin.

So that is that. I will say this ; Delph looked good, we need to use the wings better - NoZogbia hardly featured on the wings today and we must play that way and not just the middle.

We also didn't play long that often and we looked to play on the ground - overall a work in progress, but it has to get fixed soon and I hope it will.

Report and analysis tomorrow, but now it is time for a beer.
