Bolton 1 Aston Villa 1: An expected result from a fairly dull game

The thing is, I agreed with Marky Mark that the most likely result was a score draw today and sure enough, it was, but I really didn't see any other result and the match played itself out, pretty much as I expected.

The good news is that Everton, as I write this are two down at home against Manchester City, so despite another poor result, we should remain in fifth place and as long as we can finish the season in fifth place, it is an improvement on last season, which we should ultimately be happy with.


There will be the post-mortem tomorrow and you can vote for your man of the match in the quick question. I'm not sure who I'm going to vote for yet, because nobody really stood out for us today, I suppose I might give my vote to Ashley Young, only because he had a bit of the luck I wrote that we needed to get something out of this game.

I don't know what else to tell you. It wasn't a great game and we got what we deserved really. I should say that I've decided Ashley Young isn't going to get my vote because of the two free kicks he had on the edge of the box, not one hit the target and well, I don't think that is good enough.

So, I have to think of a new player to give it to and I'm not sure who, I really can't say anyone was better than anyone else or anyone stood out, so maybe I'll leave it up to you guys.

But we are still fifth, so there is something to be happy about.
