Well, this one is on tv, away from home, against a local rival, and the team is managed by an ex-villa manager... what could possibly go wrong!?

I do think we can win this though.

That creep does seem to do well when playing his previous clubs so I expect them to have the game of their lives beat us 3-0then following week they will probably play a team like Rotherham and lose 4-0

Sum's lambert up

Not that this is Lambert thread but I don't really bear a grudge against him. In my eyes he tried very hard, but ultimately it didn't work out in the end. Our circumstances during and after his management were not really his doing, Lerner bears the responsibility for that s**t-heap. Not to say that Lambert was always brilliant, but I think he was a decent enough manager for us given the restrictions he was given. Anyway, off topic so apologies.

All former players and managers seem to have the game of their lives against us when they play us!

My first away game of the season... Love the wolves villa session...

Expect to lose to Lambert though would be typical us.

I'd be tempted to go 352 

             Johnstone

    Chester Baker Elphick

 Bacuna                        Amavi

             Jedinak Tish

           Grealish McCormack 

                   Gabby

 

Its a bit harsh on Adomah as he's been good this season, but he could come on after an hour and run at tired fullbacks. I just think with this we still get some width from the wing backs, and Grealish and McCormack in my eyes would pull the defence for Gabby to run in behind. Wolves have struggled defensively this season so we need to attack them.

Same team that started today for me, though I'd be tempted to swap McCormack in for Grealish.

I'm watching this from a box this weekend. I'll be low key and have to make sure I don't lose my prawns when Villa score.

I fear the Lambert effect in this one, could be the nail in our coffin for playoffs. I hope Lansbury is here in time.

I'm hoping for maybe a couple newbies for this as can't see that team vs spurs winning.

This has got a draw written all over it. Lambert won't want to lose this so I'm going for a very dull goalless draw.

Pressure of the Cups is gone now... There's nothing to stop this Club from going balls-in to the finish of the season. Time to bully the division a bit. Not gonna happen though is it? Need some players in first.

23rd in the home league (P12 W3 D3 L6).  2 home clean sheets all season (both in the first 3 weeks of the season).  Molineux the 3rd highest scoring ground in the league seeing 39 goals (F17 A22).  What I will say is that of the 6 defeats, only 1 of them came against what you'd call a poor side, and that was week 24 v QPR.  The rest were good to very good sides (Barnsley, Norwich, Leeds, Derby, Sheff Wed).  So it certainly won't be a gimme.  Add in the 2 enormous caveats of it being a derby and them having our ex-manager and this takes on a dangerous twist.  Add in the fact it's televised and that we're not exactly world beaters away from home at the best of times and I think I'd be leaving the bookie well alone for this.

Fingers are very much crossed.

Can't entertaining us winning. We never look like scoring in matches unless Kodija does something. Draw at best.
