The aggressiveness on this board really is a write to behold.

After the misery that was the start of the season it’s good to smile again about Rangers. Haven’t felt this way in a few years. If more misery is around the corner, so be it but for the time being, just nice to feel smug.

Play nice, kids - or you'll be send to your room with no internet.

We won, and won well. Enjoy it.

Think we allowed Villa the ball in certain areas of the pitch when we were out of possession - players worked really hard to make sure we had defensive shape - occasional pressing during transition, leaving Grealish and McGinn fewer opportunities to run in behind our midfield.

Job well done.
It was similar against Wednesday earlier in the week, Bannon was given the freedom to do what he wanted within his own half but wasn't allowed to get much further than that. Grealish, looking like a Poundland Ronaldo, got into slightly more advanced positions but overall I thought we did a good job on him.

That's how I saw it CS. We are very good without the ball and, as on Tuesday, our shape and organisation in defence was exemplary. That Villa had such a high percentage of possession but worked Lumley on relatively few occasions is testament to that.

We transition into our defensive formation really well but going the other way needs some more work - though given we score and our opposition doesn't means we're doing something right.

Agree with all this.

I also think we could use the pace and threat of BOS to close out games and give us another outlet: take Eze off, move Freeman into the centre and get BOS running at them. Though obviously we have managed to win 3 games without doing this in the last week!

It's some kind of sickness with him and his one or two puerile supporters, I'm sorry to say. Quite common with people who basically lack self-esteem.
