Guaranteed today...

Villa on 2/3 yellows with 30mins

Utd zero bookings till 75mins

At least 1 utd penalty 

We will hold our own but Mike Dean and VAR will ensure UTD have a significant advantage and WILL get the 3 points.

Does anyone genuinely have the slightest belief we can win this? I don’t, and that sucks. My usual optimism doesn’t apply to these rocket polishers, I’ve been a Villa fan long enough to know the story. 
 

I just hope that if we do lose, it’s not because of some horrific decision. Getting beat by a better side playing better football, fair enough. Get beat by Mike Dean, a dodgy penalty, incorrectly ruled out goal for us etc… is just not right.

Not sure what to think in regards to the set up. 

With axel out and I'd have thought a back 4 but then Hause played really well. 

I'd like Buendia and Traore in there but they don't really work with that formation. 

It's great to have options.

It is great to have options DCJ. For the first time in years I’m going into games with confidence that Smith will set us up in the best way possible. Whatever the formation or team, I’ve got faith that it will work, and we’ve got some brilliant attacking options to come on and change it.

We need to get the crowd singing "there's only one Deano, walking in a Deano wonderland" and maybe the muppet in the middle will think it is about him and give us some decisions

He never seems to complain when they dodgy pens! 

Have u ever seen any manager complain when they get a dodgy penalty or dodgy VAR or even when goal line tech failed to work when they are the beneficiary?

Erm ..... nope he doesn't!

The actual cheek of the guy! The number of dodgy pennos they get and he has the gaul to actually call out the officials for refusing to give a penalty to some blatant cheating/diving. Even if one of them could have been a Pen they also denied West Ham a clear one earlier in the game but i don't hear Moyes bleating on about that one! 

Instead Jermaine Jenas and all those who came out crowing about how wonderful it was to see Ollie Watkins sent off for going down a bit easy (Even though actually contacted) should be shouting hard & loud as to how on Earth the corrupt FA & their officials found a way to not book Ronaldo despite repeated (At least twice) clear & obvious dives. The one he was not even touched whatsoever, dragged his foot and dived blatantly....much worse than Watkins' against them last season....Not even a yellow card!

They disgust me quite frankly. The number of dodgy pens they have had against us and Jenas (A former player no less) actually saw fit to come out and slate Watkins for ONCE trying to reiprocate their antics (even though he got some contact) and he gets a red! I mean really?!  It's Ridiculous!

The ref & VAR could obviously see Ronaldo was diving as could we all. In another of the incidents he clearly kicks the ball away from goal to the left of the defender and deliberately carries his run on straight away from the ball and then at the last minute bends into the defender initiating contact. A typical UTD penalty normally. They are only so staggered because they normally get 100% of those and especially when employee No.1 Mike Dean or Martin Atkinson are officiating ... that would have likely been 3 pennos had it been against us rather than one of the current darlings of the London media West Ham.

Ollie GS  is clearly taking instruction from Alex Ferguson on how to pursuade the FA to play along. Simple tactic.. Shout loud when you don't get any decision and hey presto, because they are greasing the tracks for the scummy six especially Man U & Liverpool & have been for years, the week after (sadly against us this time) they will slot in the Ref of the moment to redress the balance and restore order.

It used to be Howard Webb or whoever (Apparently huge rumours that he was a Man U fan but tried to cover it up & still does according to UTD fans at work but who knows i guess)

Nailed on dodgy penno or two against us incoming tomorrow i reckon. The only time that tends to not happen is if it's not required like if UTD go 3-0 up so they therefore don't have any need to intervene.

 

 

He does have a point, the third penalty claim was a clear penalty. Whether OGS has a point or not has nothing to do with the history lesson

We shouldn't blame Mike Dean or the refs. Blame OGS and Manchester United, it is in that club's DNA to bully and influence refs. Be hilarious if we won 1-0 via a penalty. 🤣

The realistic odds of that happening are at least 1000/1

Can also see a stonewall penalty overturned for us, Utd to get a penalty after <insert generic word removed player for Utd> falls over his feet. Red card to follow for villa player. It will be the Mike Dean show.

We will lose as we always do and it will most likely be to a ridiculous decision. 

All should bare this in mind and realise that it doesn't matter for 24 hrs because Dean Smith will be shit as usual.  I'm just prepared for it all now, why didn't he make any subs, why is AEG even in the squad, the usual bollox, get behind the boys before during and after come what may.
