Team news is in and oh dear. Here we go again.

Agree0 Disagree0

Was hoping landsbury would be in instead of onamah and grabban starting a game instead of fifteen minutes at the end. heard he can play in wide positions, would be a nice replacement for uncle albert. Oh well have to see how things pan out. going to be a gritty game i suspect. COME ON YOU VILLA!

20 Feb 2018 19:41:37
Agree. Gabby could have even been a better idea than onomah. Only just mind.

20 Feb 2018 15:29:59
It's a no brainer for me tonight, If Grealish is out, O`hare should get at least 45 mins tonight with maybe Lansbury sharing the duty depending on how the game is going.
Also Grabban should get a game out wide, he has played wide before so nothing new there, he is quick and has two good feet, he is hungry right now, and ripe for this game at home.
We have to forget the Fulham game, go for the throat of Preston and show this division that we are not pretenders, we are very capable of doing another Bristol City and show no mercy.
I will be very disappointed if we fail to perform tonight, if we don`t we will show all and sundry we are a one- trick pony.
If we fail to win tonight, tomorrow night`s games could become very significant as to the psychological effect it would have on the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don’t think there’s any chance of seeing O’hare tonight he played 90 minutes last night and they follow strict recovery programs to avoid injury. He shouldn’t have played last night and been saved for tonight.

See the snake showed his teeth and spat his venom out well done Wigan. our result don't look as bad now against Peterborough now does it? # SACK PEP.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 10:45:54
Urm ok.

20 Feb 2018 09:11:28
Prediction time fellow fans,
I am going for a 1-0 win,
I can see a laboured win against a big physical side,
Defeat would seriously damage our top 2 finish especially if teams around us win,
Come on you lions!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 12:57:31
Dont have a prediction, think its going to be another tough one hoping brucie has changed things around a little. maybe grabban out wide and landsbury at number10.certainly need some kind of change from saturday. without change our promotion push is going to suffer. The under 23 did well last night and brucie may have to use one or two from there at some point. VILLA FOREVER.

20 Feb 2018 13:52:52
My team
Thor or jedi
Grealish if fit otherwise houlinan

19 Feb 2018 19:39:10
How many Wolverhampton or Birmingham City players would get into Aston Villas team?

Agree0 Disagree7

19 Feb 2018 21:06:29
Again. why?

Stop looking at every other club.

20 Feb 2018 07:21:29
Walkies, your like a moth to the flame!

20 Feb 2018 09:27:58
Because it was a question on a radio show Flackie and I thought it was a good question as we claim to have the best squad.

20 Feb 2018 15:24:07
Err, ok walkies, if that's what you think!

19 Feb 2018 18:42:19
Ryan Sessegnon 17 years old and already nearly 60 first team appearances, I won`t mention others, he is a good enough example.
It just goe`s to show how young players can develop and blossom if given the chance when needed, it makes me laugh when we have young players like us and they keep getting overlooked.
Such a chance reared its head on Saturday, I think under the circumstances O`Hare who is 19 or Grabbon should have been given the chance to play Grealishe`s roll against Fulham, with the other playing wider in Adomah`s slot.
Surely doing that would have been far less disruptive to the team, and our current system that has been very rewarding lately.
Teams like Fulham become disjointed if the game is taken to them, we did not do that and as soon as our team was announced it was obvious how the afternoon would probably end we really did play into their hands and got well beaten in the end.
I am happy where we are, but we are far from the best side in the division and we tend to show our Achilles heel when faced with team selection, we must have plans B and C.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would of been good to see O’hare on the left Saturday, don’t see why he hasn’t been given more of a chance given how much he was involved earlier in the season. I just read that last season when reading beat us 3-1 at home Grabban played left mid for them and did so for quite a few games, I’d stick him out there tomorrow and give Lansbury the chance in the number 10, that’s where he played for Forrest and made his name so let’s give him a chance. As for Sessegnon I do get what your saying totally about young players not getting a chance but players like Sessegnon are a special case, fans of other clubs would of been saying the exact same thing after watching grealish in the FA cup semi final, some young kids just scream that their ready get their chance and don’t make any mistakes, Green up until his injuries was like that and Bruce consistently played him, but I too can’t see why O’hare isn't atleast on the bench, even against Peterborough he was a stand out player, it’s quite weird, as I’m writing this he’s playing for the U23’s and we’re 2-0 up 20 minutes him, shock horror Murphy has scored, good that we’re dominating but if their playing tonight neither will feature tomorrow.

19 Feb 2018 20:24:04
U 23 3-1 now.
I do get you in theory, but Sessegnon has only become a special case because he has developed into a special case.
If you make regular appearances you can gauge a players ability, if not its stop start all the time.
It is no use saying how good someone is and then picking someone else, show them you mean it.
At the end of the day Bruce tends to put faith into old legs, its not my thinking chris, I am a bit cavalier mate, always have been always will be.

19 Feb 2018 20:32:58
Yea your right mate, it’s hard to judge, they have to be good enough in the first case to get regular games but they need regular games to be good enough. Injuries are going to seriously test our promotion push now and we need to find some answers, Players like Lansbury need to be given a chance and to step up now, and then youngsters need to be tested aswell.

19 Feb 2018 20:43:17
Spot on chris, I can tell you are passionate about your football as I am.
Managers I have shti em, haha.

19 Feb 2018 22:09:25
6-1 it ended, O’hare goal and assist same for Hepburn-Murphy, both are ready for the first team surely!

20 Feb 2018 08:00:08
I'm a massive o'hare fan and I find it very strange that he is not on the bench at least,
We must get these players involved more otherwise other clubs will take him from us,
Think there is more chance gabby will get back in front of o'hare,

18 Feb 2018 23:36:21
I know it's not Villa, but well done Rochdale, a well deserved draw . Especialy after Dele diving Alli boughr another penalty .

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2018 01:40:22
Weird situation, definite foul even though the player tried to pull out because he knew he was about to give away a foul, but then Alli’s pelican dive and roll made the refs mind up. Should of been a pen anyway the way I see it but the way Alli acts and it’s not just this incident is definitely distasteful.

18 Feb 2018 00:30:47
Just back from Fulham after train delays. anyway on to the game soon as I saw the side I said we would lose there was no creative players playing really bar snodgrass sorry Bruce but today you got it wrong poor team selection Green should of played or even grabb. onwards and upwards tho roll on tuesday. UTV.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2018 08:40:57
Fulham was always going to be a hard game and our winning run has to end some time,
It's how we react on Tuesday which counts now to start another winning run,
But injurys are now threatening to derail our promotion to key players,
First half we were ok but 2nd half they stepped up the tempo and done us with pace,
As I say without grealish and adomah we looked toothless up top and they will be missing Tuesday by all accounts,
Bring on Preston who are a decent side and will be a threat,

18 Feb 2018 09:38:14
Greens injured, what else could Bruce do? Go two up top and get destroyed, injuries crippled us yesterday but they had to make a go of it, players more or less picked themselves.

18 Feb 2018 11:48:19
Looks like adomah could be out for quite a while,
That is bad news and with green also injured it leaves us weak in wide area,
Just hope o'hare gets a chance to come in from the bench,
Not happy with anomah if I'm honest,

18 Feb 2018 12:50:48
It’s onanah, and we get you don’t as you have said every chance you have had.

18 Feb 2018 14:06:31

18 Feb 2018 14:33:31
Hope injuries don’t force us into a bad patch, might be best to change formation for a few games until the main lads are back. Although I can think of player we have who can play number 10 role and is one of the most prolific players in championship history, shame his attitude stinks.

17 Feb 2018 20:00:52
We have had our share of keepers who can't kick, but the amount of goals Sam has saved, I'm sure we can forgive him that one . Axel had a great first start and it sounds as if Thor played his part . Today proved we need Green fit and playing, an ideal replacement for either Albert or Snoddy . Also what's happened to O Hare? Brucie didn't want to send him out on loan, So at least he should be warming the bench . Today we where in it first half, another couple of changes forced on us, then Fulham stepping it up, was to much . Got to get back on it for Preston, they had a good result today, so they will be up for it . Onwards&Upwards Villaforever.

Sounds like grealish and adomah could be missing on Tuesday as well listening to Bruce on wm,
That would be a massive blow if true,
