Hi guys Milan here and This is a blog talking about the third round of the EFL Cup and there’s been some drama so far and speaking of drama let’s start with my team Aston Villa.
Patrick Bamford scored twice as Middlesbrough beat 10-man Aston Villa to reach the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
This game shows that with Tommy Elphick and Chris Samba in defence, we will lose the game and it has shown as Middlesbrough knocked us out of the the cup. First half was not exciting at all but we was doing alright, I mean we wasn’t creating any chances but we was staying in the game and trying to exploit a weakness.
1st goal went in a one man that we’ve been criticising him for a long time. Tommy Elphick who bottled it a brought down Bamford and got a second yellow and he got sent off. Elphick is a player that I’ve completely misjudged because somehow the desire and passion he had when he guided Bournemouth to the Premier League seemed to disappear since coming to Villa. He needs to sort it out before Steve Bruce gives him the bullet.
2nd goal went in when again, Patrick Bamford puts the nail in the coffin and send us out of the EFL Cup and we had no pray of getting back into this game. We seem to be half asleep half the time like these teams are taking performing enhancers and we taking bloody sleeping pills before the game.
Let’s hope that this doesn’t make a toxic atmosphere again and we can kick on the season and concentrate on the Championship and we can build our momentum and achieve minimum play offs. UTV!!
