The day we get hammered. We'll be kicking off so often we wont have to hoof for Hogan/Kodjia to get a touch.

The day Holloways QPR go above us

The day the away fans turn

The day DrT weilds the axe

The only positive for Bruce being he hasn't got far to get a taxi back to his roots

All on live TV for the whole nation to see how far we have fallen

A defeat at Newcastle should hopefully see the end of potato head and his dinosaur management style. Roll on Monday for another instalment of the AVFC decline. :D

In some bizarre sense of morbid curiosity I'll probably subject myself to sitting through this. Although if we go down by more than 2 goals I'll be switching over.

Same team that started last night for me. It's going to be a tough one obviously, but I'm hopeful we can give a good account of ourselves. I think we'll lose, we seem to lose no matter what else happens at the moment, but I think we'll be surprisingly competitive.

I won't even dare have the radio on, let alone the TV for this. I'll go to bet at 7.59pm on the nose and read porn. The rest, you can imagine for yourselves.

I hope for Villa's sake Bruce replaces the keeper for this one. Shelvey will shoot from every angle and Johnston will be put under tremendous pressure from the start of the game.

Probably a dull 2-1 or 1-0 loss. Not so horrific to justify greater rage as it'll be easier for him to point out its a tough fixture, nor so great for us that we can take any actual pleasure out of the night.

I don't see this as a foregone conclusion at all.  We're playing well enough that we can give any team a game.  We just need to cash in on our chances and try not to be punished by silly mistakes.  We're as likely to lose to Rotherham as Newcastle and as likely to beat Newcastle as Rotherham.  The quality is there in the squad that we won't be out-classed by anyone in this division, not even Newcastle.  I'd love this to be our watershed game, but I'm long past expecting or hoping for it.  Just don't be shit please Villa.

Shelvey will destroy us shooting from wherever.

There wingers/fullbacks will destroy Hutton and Amavi

Gayle and whoever will slowly wear down Chester & Baker

I can see Bruce playing

                       SJ

Hutton Chester Elphick Baker Amavi

     Hourihane Lansbury Thor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

               Hogan Kodjia

The pressure will be off, I think we will play quite well. However we can't keep a clean sheet so probably lose 1-0 to a late Newcastle goal, and then massive pressure on the next 2 home games. Lose those 2 then all bets are off.

This match is on my birthday, and I will be up in Scotland so I am going to drive down for this match. I am going with my old Newcastle friend so I really hope we somehow knick a win. I had to pay him 50 quid last season because I bet we'd finish higher than Newcastle. I almost took the same bet this season.
