Preston North End V Aston Villa Saturday 1st October 2016 3pm KO. Build up and match thread.

Post by NARLA24 on Wed Sep 28, 2016 5:13 pm

Now, has there been a seemingly more important game in Di Matteos short time at our club. This one could be the game that makes Dr Xia swing the sword if we do not get 3 points and more importantly win comfortably.
The 5,000 or so Villa fans travelling to this game deserve a bloody good day out and a good win from the lads in Claret and Blue.
What can we expect team selection wise. More ridiculous subs to try and defend a 1 nil lead or has the manager finally woken up and realised that he could be out of the door if we do not start winning games.
I hope to see a much more determined Villa side for this fixture, one that will put Preston to the sword and score plenty of goals.
Feck knows, we have the ability to score plenty with the squad we have.
Crunch time in my view and i fully expect Dr Xia to have a list of replacements for Di Matteo should the result not go our way.
Going for a good Villa win because the thought of another full scale change at our club gives me the right squits.

I'm going and I'm expecting us to win 3-1. We will be 3-0 up and they will score late on. I don't expect an easy game but we will take our chances this time.

It's sad that after spending record money to revamp this squad that I have a massive doubt about this game.

Agree with @Army villain... 2-2. Which will feel like a loss.

Well I kicked off the last three or so match threads and we could only draw so lets hope something changes with this one aye? Very Happy . Bacuna is out so I'm hoping Richards starts at right-back. Hey maybe another experienced lad back there could make the difference? Who knows.

That would be the only change for me I think. Unless RDM want's to bring back Mccormack and play Kodjia on the right of a front three?

I've calmed down from Tuesday's result now and I'm ready for another battle on Saturday. I truly hope for RDM's sake the win comes here and we can go into that international break on a high.

The good news that I believe that this will be end of our dismal sequence of draws.

The bad news is that, for me, the natural direction we are heading in is to start losing matches.

So 1-0 to PNE for me but it could be worse.

Have we actually seen anything to suggest it's about to improve?

I obviously wasn't there on Tuesday and didn't get to watch us play, but unless we looked better than the result suggests it's hard to be optimistic about PNE

First half poor, second half well on top and should have finished the game from what I hear. So in truth it was exactly the same as most of the games we've played this season bar Ipswich and Toon.

0-0 bore draw for me. With Preston piling on the pressure in the last 10 minutes and hitting the post and bar?

Nothing suggests we will do anything else.

RDM will claim success because we managed to keep a clean sheet in the final 10 minutes of a game? Fans at the game will give him dog's abuse!

I get the horrible feeling that this will be a repeat of the Bristol City game. I think I've been wrong with every prediction I've had so far, so that may be a good thing.

We need to step up a gear and get to mid table by the time the transfer window opens. Then we need to invest in new CMs who can dictate the games and a replacement for DeLaet. We then obviously need to go on an unstoppable run to surge up the table. Obviously the more points we get before christmas will make things after easier, or allow us to still aim for automatic promotion.

The way we are heading it seems as if we are trying to settle ourselves in the league and then push on next season after the novelty of playing at the great Villa Park has worn off. I think this would be a mistake as the way the football is going, competing for promotion against the 3 who drop down would be a monumental task, especially if those 3 clubs bolster their squads in January to try and avoid the drop.

Agreed. It is a massive gamble to put all our hopes on next season as if we fail FFP kicks in and we are hit with a transfer ban. That happens and we will be a championship team for a few years more!

Villa Dan,

I must admit that I hadn't even given FFP a thought when writing my comment. If that's the case we'll really need to go to town in January with signings to make sure we can get promoted this season or last two seasons in the Championship. I don't know how they'll go about this as it would either be a case of going all or bust on some top players and doing a Middlesborough if I'm thinking right, or conceding that we are happy to wait another year before trying again.
