Personally I would have preffered Weimann to Gabby....but there you go....McLeish knows best right ?

6 deffenders is better than having 8 and the occasional attack but i really hope that we win today

so 45 mins in, one decent chance, 6 defenders, no weimann,, Gabby keeps being pulled out wide coz no width and there was me thinking we needed to win this game! Mcleish would probably argue we need to not lose. If this stays the same at 60 mins let's hope he makes a change. Here's my favorite pre match Mcleish-ism yet......."I know the supporters don't want this. They want Villa to be up in the top six or something"....... Yeah Alex, something. Ok then lol

quality match.. ahem! thanks Carlos and Given, both saved off line. They could have had a pen, so could we. Draw fair I guess. Rubbish Midlands football!

At least Bannan didn't get a game. Eck normally plays 4 strikers. Strange that he went for 7 defenders!!!
