    Aston Villa (A) Build Up and Matchday Thread

    Well - two out of two so far since the restart so I'm going for the hat-trick.

    I really, really want us to win this one.

    We never lose. We either win or we learn.

    I would start the same team. We were able to take both Traore and Jota off and we didn't seem to expend too much energy as a team.

    If we want to match their midfield up for numbers Dendoncker could start I guess

    The 3 up top. Whether we swap Jota for Neto it doesn't matter really.

    Villa won't play with numbers behind the ball so we should, in theory, get a hell of lot more space than we did in the last couple of games.

    Same team for me. Weather won't be an issue, it's going to be about 19 degrees.

    Of all the teams we have left to play, these are the one we could genuinely take apart. They are appalling at the back. Mings will try to snap someone, the wanker.

    Really can't see anything other than a win. They're shit at the back, dodgy keeper and they will come and have a go at us. I'd have been more cautious but without the crowd to lift them it's hard to see anything in their favour.

    Villa back four last night was Konsa (RB) - Hause - Mings - Targett
    Prediction 24th January: 14 games to go: 6 wins, 5 draws, 3 defeats - final points 57 when the league finishes in May 2023...

    5-3-2 for me (to start anyway)

    Patricio
    Doherty Boly Coady Saiss Otto
    Dendonker Moutinho Neves
    Jimenez Jota

    Can see Villa being up for it (they've gotta be) and would like us to take control of the game first.

    2nd half if we've not already gone in front wouldn't hesitate to get Traore and/or Neto on (and switch to a top 3) as well as Vinagre to really pile it on.

    They have a quandary. They need to get Grealish on the ball higher up the pitch than they are, but that leaves them more open. Can see Smith going 5 at the back to try and do that. El Mohamedy will come in at wing back, Grealish as a 10
    5311.

    I'd set up the same as West Ham, but Jota replaced by Neto or Adama

    He's appropriately rated by the Bournemouth fans.

    all together now:
    if mings can play for england so can i....

    same starting line up/formation for me. if we get through this game with our management being what it is, I can see us not having conceded in 3, and looking optimistic for the remaining games.

    3-4-3 again, it’s our best formation and contains our best players.

    Targett is a coward.

    If he is getting rinsed he will get "injured"

    He may as well have a target on his head as well as his back if Traore is starting.

    Derby games are usually a great leveller, but without a crowd it is much more difficult for Villa. Despite that (and the complete lack of confidence from their fans) I would still take a draw. They will not go down without a fight, 1-1.

    We shouldn't be settling for a draw with these twats. There's a place in the Champions League out there to be won ffs. No mercy. I hope we crush them.
    There are only two man-made objects that can be seen from space.

    2. Low Hill at Christmas

    As per the last 2 games - man for man we are better & it shouldn't be close, but even if it is we will still come out on top.
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    (paused for the moment, but hopefully to be continued)

    Amen If the vidi printer has to spell the score in brackets I would not be unhappy
    Why they will qualify: Nuno Espirito Santo is actually a tactical genius.

    This won’t be the walk in the park that some are predicting, Villa will undoubtedly raise their game. They know a win puts huge pressure on the sides around them.
    Agreed pound for pound we are a better side and if we play close to our best there’s only 1 winner.
