'If It's Football, It's Vital'

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?

what the hell is heskey starting what a joke!
ShaneBlack
Fortunately Heskey's achilies will be gone in 5 mins

Im hoping for a strong Villa performance but i can't believe he's playing Emile Heskey at right wing
HuddersfieldYiddo
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.
Callum_ws
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.
Villan444
Discuss honking??? Predictive ***** text. Bannan is NO winger callum.
Villan444
How terrible Heskey playing I can't believe it, what do all these managers see in him, including MON
andy3221
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!
Callum_ws
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???
Villan444
Does he just pick names out of a hat? Just random changes each week with no apparent tactical reason. 4 man midfield against City, and 2 of those are the really pacey and mobile Petrov and Heskey!? Ridiculous.
lurman
game over. 1 -0 down
ShaneBlack
Take Bent and Collins out of your team and you'd be as bad as Wigan
HuddersfieldYiddo
Bent is useless Yiddo unless he's given the ball in the 6 yard box, can't jump, tackle, header, dribble, pass short or long.
Villan444
Gary Neville, Megacock as a player but talks a lot of sense. " Aston Villa have played with a total lack of ambition" and " Why wait till the 90th minute to get any bodies in the area??"
Villan444
Well, can definitely see why some of your fans are protesting. Woeful, but our failure to score kept things close. Good luck for the rest of the season, sad to say but you might need it.
fifthcolumnblue
4 games now to save our season ...ALL winnable (next 4) I hope and pray fro 10 points minimum or we really are in trouble if we aint already :-O
GvillaG
Another game lost before a ball is kicked.... Heskey on the bloody wing?????????????????????????
thorpyuk
Oh dont worry fifthcolumnblue we have played worse that this good luck to you but dont think you will need it.
