    This should sell out comfortably then as we've got just under a fortnight still to go?

    Yes, I believe the last time away fans had the lower north was Man City a few years ago in the cup. Might have been our relegation season.
  3. Whilst Saturday was glorious, we are Aston Villa after all and this will be a very tough game. I'm hoping that we will be more suited against the likes of Brighton who will actually try and attack us than your Burnley's who will sit back and look to nick a point. Our League Cup victory last month bears no relevance to this encounter.
  4. Benteke is absolutely nailed on to score, Ayew too probably.
  5. Heaton Guilbert - Engels - Mings - Taylor McGinn - Douglas Luiz - Grealish Jota - Wesley - Trezeguet Subs: Steer, Elmo, Konsa, El Ghazi, Davis, Hourihane, Marvelous
  6. Trezeguet looks fitter and more up to speed than most of our players!
  7. Trezeguet reminds me a bit of James Milner when he played for us, I think Trez is way quicker and way more skilful but his work rate and the way he hunts the ball down is unbelievable, he looks like he's been playing in the PL for years.Douglas will get there, obviously a quality player and will be one of the first names on the team sheet for us every week but he looks knackered after an hour, the Premier League is relentless so it will take a newbie to English football time to get up to speed. They obviously don't fancy throwing Marvelous into it yet as he's not fit enough. I don't think many teams will enjoy being pressed and hunted by Wesley, Trezeguet, McGinn and Douglas Luiz, all have a fantastic ability to nick the ball from an opponent. So pleased for Wesley, it angered me that people were questioning his capabilities TWO games in when he's never played in the country before, stick your 'slow start' up your a**es!
  8. So frustrating. Typical Villa we've shot ourselves in the foot again with that catastrophic opening 12 minutes. We completely dominated things after that, just annoying we couldn't quite get that second. Still, plenty of positives and we all know it will take this new team time to gel, Trezeguet, Wesley, Douglas Luiz and Engles have never played in English football before don't forget. If we can try and cut the mistakes out I'm confident we'll start picking up points, any mistake we make is twice as likely to be punished in the PL.
  9. These are Villa fans! It's what we do best.
  10. Thought before the game we'd lose by 4+ goals so can't be too disappointed with that.The gulf in class between the Championship and Premier League is indescribable, and the gulf between the likes of Spurs, Man City and Liverpool and the rest of the PL is too. We were brilliant in the first half, tactically spot on, knew we'd tire in the second and maybe we could have tested them a bit more but I think we were knackered. Heaton, Elmo, Mings, Engels, Taylor, Hourihane, Jack (mistake aside), McGinn, Trezeguet and El Ghazi were all decent>very good and Wesley had a thankless task in his first game in English football up there on his own but thought he battled well. Never feels nice losing but if anyone was genuinely confident of us getting anything from the game, especially after watching Liverpool v Norwich last night, then I'll have some of what you're smoking! I would have been gutted if we'd have been annihilated but the fact we competed well, didn't look out of place and held the lead for so long has given me confidence. Long way to go! UTV
  11. I'd give my right arm to go to this, damn annual leave allowance! Hopefully it won't be too long before our next European away day...
  12. If we compete and keep the deficit below three goals I'll be happy with that and we move on to Bournemouth.
  13. Can't knock Hogan, has had injury setbacks and been treated like s*** by Bruce but doesn't moan, just gets his head down and gets on with it much like Tommy Elphick did! Lovely assist from Wesley!
  14. You wouldn't be referring to the Birmingham Mail by any chance, would you?
