This match provides an ideal opportunity to build on the performance against Norwich and start to create some momentum. 

Rest a few players but still put out a strong side.

                         Steer

Bree     Chester     Samba     DeLaet

             Jedinak    Lansbury

Adomah         O'Hare               Green

                        Davis

yep, like that side. Though would be minded to try Hogan alongside Davis to see how he does. Looking forward to Adomah getting his fitness back

It's a freebee for me; put out a second string side, try and win and not to pick up injuries but to be honest I don't care. The league is of ultimate importance.

I would use this opportunity to test out how davis ans hogan do up top.

Give steer, o hare, samba and adomah games. Rest terry, hourihane  johnstone, whelan.

Our games friday and that is far more important than this game

-----------------------------Steer---------------------------

Bree---------Chester-------Samba--------Taylor

--------------------------Jedinak--------------------------

-----------------O'Hare--------Lansbury---------------

Adomah--------------------------------------Bjarnason

-------------------------Agbonlahor----------------------

I'd tell Gabby to try to replicate the hold up role that Davis played - to see if he can - we'll need someone else who can do it and Gabby is a better bet than Hogan.

I wish we had more than one left back.

De Laet can play LB too can't he? I might be wrong there...

He can....but it's can not does. I'm not sure he's either comfortable or good there.

Good point, it's a last resort rather than an option. I don't know what our youth LBs are like, perhaps one of them is ready to step up.

Be interesting what sort of side Bruce does. Normally you would play the kids such as Davis and Green- but they played so well yesterday I suggest to rest them for Friday!  I suspect Johnstone, Hutton,  and Terry to be rested, no idea on the rest of the side.

I think we will go with this:

I want to give Chester a rest, but we only have 3 centerbacks unless Bedeau, Toner, or Suliman are given a chance.

I'd go

Steer

Richards---Elphick---Samba---Bree

Bjarnason---Lyden---Lansbury

O'Hare---Davis---Green

With Adomah, Jedinak (if fit) and Hogan getting some minutes off the bench.

I don't know if cup tying Elphick and Richards will make any difference to getting rid of them, there doesn't seem to be any interest so I'd rather give Taylor, Chester and Terry a rest and I think Bree has played as left back in the past a few times.

I'd start Davis and Green as I think the right thing to do would be to keep their momentum  going and give them some more first team minutes especially as it is a cup game, work on building their stamina.

In these type of situations I'd always rather start them and take them off if they look exhausted because starting games has a different feel to coming on as sub and it would be good to get them used to that.

I'll say 3-1 Villa with the front three each getting one. :flag:

I'd like to see Davis in a front 2 with Gabby with O'Hare in the creative role. Can see it working and if it does I'd be persisting with it in the league.

I think Bruce will go for something like this keeping Friday in mind:

                       Steer

Bree       Elphick    Samba     Bjarn

                       Jedi

               Lansbury   Ohare

Adomah                                 Gabby

                        Hogan

Not sure on Elphick's status, Chester if he refuses to play him...   I still think McCormack needs to be involved in these types of games especially if he's not leaving

Friday is far more important than this:

Steer

Hutton Samba Bedeau (Elphick if fit) De Laet

Jedinak Lyden

Adomah O Hare Bjarnasson

Hogan

Be interesting to see the selection for todays U23 game - it might give us a couple of clues on how tomorrow will look.
