Team v Manchester City...?

Team v Manchester City...?

Well Alex has confounded us all again, some changes, but not necessarily the ones anybody expected.

Villa Park
KO: 4pm
Ref: Oliver

Villa:

Given, Hutton, Dunne, Collins, Cuellar, Petrov, Gardner, Heskey, Albrighton, Keane, Bent.

Subs:

Subs:

Guzan, Ireland, Warnock, Bannan, Baker, Weimann, N'Zogbia.

Man City:

Hart, Kompany, Lescott, Zabaleta, Kolarov, De Jong, Barry, Milner, Silva, Johnson, Aguero.

Subs:

Pantilimon, Richards, Clichy, Savic, Nasri, Pizarro, Dzeko.

So how did fellow Vital Villans feel before they knew Cuellar would be at left back and Heskey returns as an automatic start on the sodding wing.

Well probably slightly more confident if the truth be told, but only slightly.

Win - 16%
Draw - 7%
Lose - 20%

Gulp....lose big - 57%

A whopping 57% ahead of the team announcement, wonder how high that would be now??

Come on you Villa boys....please?

Im hoping for a strong Villa performance but i can't believe he's playing Emile Heskey at right wing

so strange. Heskey has done nothing good in any of the games he's played recently. Bannan, N'Zogbia and Ireland should all be in that role ahead of him.

Personally glad to see Collins as he's so dominant in the air but why has hutton not been punished with the bench like Warnock?? Not even discuss honking about Heskey, we knew he's a fave of the clueless one. he can't pass more than 5 yards, can't dribble, is scared to shoot and is solely good for jumping and winning flick-ons from hoofs.

How terrible Heskey playing I can't believe it, what do all these managers see in him, including MON

i know he's not, and i wouldn't play him there if it was my choice, or Ireland for that matter. but if he's available for selection, then he's above Heskey. Heskey is even less of a winger!

Lol Callum, fair point. Heskey and Albrighton are playing as wing backs, we've come for the draw yet again. Feel sorry for Gardner, what's the pointing playing him to get overrun and hardly have a touch???
