Aston Villa v Blackburn Rovers build up and match thread. Kick off 3pm 5th November 2016

Post by De Kuip on Thu Nov 03, 2016 10:54 pm

Right then, well we're almost at Friday and no match thread, so as I'm unbeaten, thought I'd better start one!

So will this be fireworks from Villa, or a damp squib?

Blackburn are one of the few clubs to match Villa in basket-case-ness over the past few years, and whilst we've moved on and in to an era of new-found optimism, the Lancashire club are still saddled with unpopular owners.

They currently sit 23rd in the Championship, but have shown glimmers of improvement of late, picking up 5 points in October, with draws against Wolves, Ipswich and a win against Forest.

Danny Graham is back from injury, and whilst Rovers will be boosted by this, they shouldn't pose too much trouble for Villa.

My feeling is that for us to do anything less than win, we'd have to be the architects of our own downfall, rather than they craft the win.

I'm assuming Grealish is available, and Gabby could be in the mix, plus Elphick is back from injury.

Not sure about Adomah or Bacuna - nothing on any sites to indicate anything, so the club may be waiting for tomorrow to see.

My feeling is a 3-0 victory to Villa.

I'll be schlepping up the M5 again to run my throat ragged, seems ages since the Fulham game, but it won't feel like that when I hit the 12 miles of 50mph average speed bollocks at Droitwich.

Don't want to see Gabby playing, not particularly fussed if Elphick is fit for it or not. Grealish would be more welcome and Adomah fit and in the mix too.

3-1 UTV.

Drop Westwood and we should see a win again.

I think Ayew is out banned so we'll either see McCormack or Grealish back i would have thought.

And play someones granddad at right back as it would be a big improvement on Hutton...

Blackburn, like most clubs will come to villa pasrk with a game plan of keep it tight, dont conceed and hit us on the break, are they good enough to do this??? are we good enough to break them down???
i am hoping we get an early goal and that will force them out and we will then hit them for 3 or 4.
We need to play an attacking formation and be 'at them' from the off, they will panic and if we are on top of our game going forward they will not be able to stop us.

i wouldnt be surprised though if it ended 0-0.

Damn football is so undredictable! (thats why we love it)

An easy Villa win for me. Now Bruce has had some proper time with the squad we will see massive improvements.

2-0 win, Kodjia and Baker with the goals. Hope it's McCormack in for Ayew, if so x2 assists.

Yeah I really hope we can get a win here. Watched Blackburn play Wolves last week and tbh they aren't a bad side going forward but defensively they did look vulnerable.

Adomah is fit apparently so I wonder if Bruce will play him on the right and Grealish on the left with Kodjia alone upfront? Gonna be interesting to see what he does. Would like to see Tish replace Westwood and partner Jedi and Gary. Also can't see Elphick getting back into the team for now either.

Yep Gardner doing ok enough to stay in and that 3 SHOULD be enough against them.

RB is our biggest leak so Lyden should get a chance.

Hoping Rmac turns it on today, an intelligent player who will deliver once he clicks.

Gabby not even on bench for me and I'd make Jedi captain.

A chance to see if my theory about Ayew hindering a COMPLETE team performance is correct (prob not), he works, has talent, has scored and assisted, that is commendable but I have this gut feeling were not good enough overall as a team and that without him the dynamic impact on our shape, overall team balance and play will be better. Is he a maverick, do teams click better without him, I remember reading that his last club didn't know where to play him to get the best out of the team. Who knows.

I'd honestly like to know if the transfers made the summer he was in charge was his signings or Reillys. I suspect the latter

I'm shivering outside the holte with 3 pints of cold beer swilling around my stomach, I've just asked 4530 different people why Westwood keeps getting picked and no fucker here has a clue here either.

TEAM FOR TODAY

Golini, Hutton, Amavi, Chester, Baker, Jedinak, Gardner, Grealish, Adomah, Mccormack, Kodjia

SUBS: Bunn, Elphick, Agonlahor, Cissokho, Tshibola, Westwood, Gestede

So no Murphy which is rather disappointing. Anyway here is the possible teams for today..

442

......................Gollini..................

....Hutton...Chester..Baker..Amavi..

..Adomah..Jedinak..Gardner..Grealish..

..............Kodjia...Mccormack.....,,


433

.....................Gollini..................

....Hutton...Chester..Baker..Amavi..

...............Jedinak..Gardner.......
....................Grealish............
...........Adomah..........Kodjia.........
...................Mccormack......................

Gonna be interesting to see which way we set up. if we play 442 it should be alright as Blackburn normally play that aswell. No doubt though Bruce has gone for it today. Want to see Grealish and Mccormack have good games today and make a case for themselves.
