Cardiff vs Aston Villa match thread

Post by AstonThriller on Sat Dec 31, 2016 11:35 am

Well what can I say? I WANT MY TITLE BACK!!!..and hopefully I'll have that belt around my waist come 5pm Monday Very Happy . Anyway now for some info about the game. Cardiff's game at Brighton was called off yesterday and as soon as it happened you had Villa fans on twitter saying "advantage Cardiff" ..REALLY? Our game is FOUR DAYS after we last played and we're worried about that? Not for me...imo class will be the main difference in this game, not energy.

The bad news ahead of this game though is the Ivory Coast apparently rejected our plea to allow Kodjia to play in this game!!!..bloody shocking but I guess it is what it is. Ayew is allowed to play though and I'm hoping it will be him, MCcormack and Adomah as the front three. Grealish had a dead leg on Thursday so it will be touch and go as to whether he makes it back on time.

I suspect it will be a tough encounter but one we have a good chance of winning if we play to our potential. With this being the last league game for two weeks it would be great to get the three points and really make a big move near to the top six.

My team

................Bunn................

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

..........Jedinak..Gardner......
...............Grealish............
....Adomah.............Ayew.....
..............MCcomack................

Bacuna can come in for Grealish if Jack doesn't make it. Whatever the result though lets hope this team looks very different by the time we go to Wolves.

Hutton.......Chester........Baker.......Amavi
Adomah......Jedinak.......Westwood......Ayew
....................McCormack.......................
.......................Gestede........................

I've assumed Grealish unfit and Kodjia away

I'd like to see Richards back in at right back if possible. Even his delivery is better than Hutton.
Westwood, Gardner, Bacuna to provide the energy we need in a midfield 3.
Ayew, McCormack, Adomah for width and intelligence from the front 3.
RHM to come on when Ayew proves too selfish.

What's up with this ridiculous kick off time? Can hardly get home from work in time.

Rumours spreading that Kodjia has been cleared to play!!..if so then that's a major boost for us. Also apparently Sky are claiming that Jack is definitely ruled out of the game aswell which is a shame but hopefully we'll cope.

1-3 to Villa hopefully see Warnock have an absolute melt down at some perceived injustice just to put the cherry on the cake.

This lineup with Kodjia replacing Gestede hopefully, as I don't think Gestede will play for us again.
If Kodjia doesn't play then Ayew has to play with McCormack up front with Bacuna coming in on the left.
Basically we have to start winning away games if we want to get into the playoffs, so a tight 0-1!

I've just got up, in my slightly not awake state yet I read that as 0-11 and thought you'd gone more made than me!

TEAM NEWS

NO KODJIA OR JEDINAK!!

Bunn, Hutton, Chester, Baker, Amavi, Westwood, Gardner, Bacuna, Grealish, Adomah, MCCormack

Subs: Gollini, Cissokho, Elphick, Tshibola, Hepburn-Murphy, Ayew, Agonlahor

All in all not a bad team I guess. Jedi was struggling against Leeds so I'm thinking Bruce has decided to rest him. Shame Kodjia can't play but it's a big chance for Ross to really stake his claim now. Nice to see Murphy and Tish on the bench too. Word is Cardiff's team have five defenders and two defensive midfielders so they may try to frustrate us today. If so then Ayew can come on for one of the midfielders.

Ridiculous that Kodjia wasn't released to play. Did Jedinak have a skinful at NYE or something?

Get your bucket ready.

Not that you can read a lot into BBC text commentary, but it doesn't make for inspiring reading, nor the "as it stands" table.
