  1. With regards to Luiz starting ahead of Drinkwater I was discussing this last night with mates in the pub before the game where the general consensus was that Luiz should start. I, however, was of the opinion that the reason Drinkwater starts and plays the first 60-70 minutes is a plan by Smith to allow the opposing midfielders to tire before bringing on the fresh legs of Luiz when he has more space to play in and therefore create more chances (or in last nights case score). Thanks for taking time to read my ramblings (which is more than my mates did!)
  2. Reading the last few pages trying to guess who those two blokes are was like watching the masked singer. No-one knows who they are and ultimately no-one really cares who they are.
  3. I'd be very tempted to go 4-1-4-1 for this game. Heaton Guilbert Engels Hause Targett Nakamba Jota McGinn Grealish El Ghazi Wesley
  4. Accurate summing up, and I don't want to be picky, but didn't Guilbert come on for Targett after Vardy scored the fourth and went straight to left back?
  5. I was born early 70's so the first Villa manager I can remember. The first and still the best.
  6. I've been reliably informed that it's called football because the ball is a foot long. Not sure if that's true or not but either way it's a great snippit of information. Maybe our American readers can enlighten us!

  9. Never mind the colour of the skip look at how dark blue the bins are - totally wrong shade. On the plus - the green bin is a nice shade for the keepers top.

    Don't forget we paid £7 million for Kalinic and I'm sure for an extra £1 million we're getting a better keeper who will hopefully play more games. Just a thought but is he left footed or right footed as this could make a great deal of difference when receiving back passes from defenders and playing out to them also. The current defenders are used to Steer (left footed) behind them.
  12. Watching the Walsall friendly it looked as if Hourihane was preparing himself to take the penalty but Wesley strolled over, collected the ball, put it down and picked his spot in the net. I'd guess Wesley is on spot kick duty - seems to have a lot of confidence about himself.

    Also when fit and playing he seems to be Burnley's captain, which goes to show how highly rated he is as a person not just a goalkeeper
  14. Went to the club shop on Saturday to get the kids shirts for the season, was waiting to get them printed when one of the shop assistants asked if they had tried them on because he said "they are coming up small". Last year they had juniors top this year is a medium adult. Now I know kids grow but bloody hell that is some growth spurt! (plus an extra £10 a shirt because of course they wanted the sponsor logos on, premier league badge, etc...) Not sure if this helps anyone on the sizing but there you go.
