Who Do You Play Up Front v Baggies Then???

Who Do You Play Up Front v Baggies Then???

A nice little talking point following a poll suggestion from Merlin128777

Who would you play up front on Sunday against WBA?

Gabby came on v Man City in the league cup like a caged lion... well, a caged lion who had been let out... err, I wish I`d not started on this talk about lions now if I`m honest with you!

So he has obviously been handled right and is hungry. Bent scored at St Mary`s but then, Benteke has been looking decent as well.

I`d hate to be a manager!

The options:

Bent & Benteke
Benteke & Gabby
Go for it with all 3
Other options/one up front
Bent & Gabby

Normally I'm not shy about screaming my opinion to all my mates and telling them exactly who should play and why, but I'm very very glad i don't have to make this decision. I'm also very glad that we're in a position that makes us have to make difficult team selection choices like this.

Benteke and Gabby all day long. Bent needs a boot up the arse. Even though he scored last week, he misses FAR too many chances.

Bent and Gabby. Bring on Benteke second half. Make WestBrom adjust, he will course damage like he did against Swansea. Bent will be hungry to play and score. Weimann's due a goal up front also.

Gabby scores his first goals since November 5th and all of a sudden he is 'the man'? Lambert las t season showed he knows how to get the best out of his strikers to keep them on their toes. Grant Holt scored 15 goals but only started 24 games. For 12 games he was on the bench. If previous Villa Managers had benched our top scorer for every third game there would be a lynching, because apparently we know better than the managers. Personally I trust in PL to work with what he has to get the best results. There are arguments for and against all the options open to him. But as I have been saying for weeks now, get you money on Villa to be having plenty of goals in their games (both for and against) as the team takes shape. This season is going to have more ups and downs than whores draws and we should sit back, enjoy the ride and not get ourselves hung up on who starts, is benched, subbed or whatever. If you try to make sense of this season you will go mad. So get down to Villa Park. Enjoy the games. Play your part in making supporting the Villa fun again. UTV. The 19th minute.

Despite what I have said about not getting hung up on the options I am a little surprised that Weiman isn't one of the options available. I think he has looked as good as any of the other three.

Hopefully Liverpool take West Brom into Extra Time and destroy them :-)

Agree VOTH should add Weiman to the options, otherwise the vote of "other options" will not be very clear. WGB for me, with a B from Belgium.

Erm hard i go for - Weimann + gabby, benteke come on for weimann we need work sock off and supply full various range and gabby use pace to nightmare defence. Weimann can find space from no where and pop right place, find space for creative force use brain. gabby drag away or find space (use his bolt speed) plus chase no hope lose balls.his form are great kept it way. Benteke fake shoulder, control ball and big to wreck defence, and flick, aerial power, finisher, his skill striker better that all striker we have beside delfouneso benteke will come good when experience same to weimann. Benteke need time and use premiership and team first and he will big impact... seem like we can let bent goas he lack create for him that all he is good pop up and tap..but his tap goal will very very usefully. other 3 striker can find for create chance for 3 ie gabby and both benteke and weimann and fail converse chance to goals.I like both him more that bent. bent...stillfore we need ruthless and cunning tap expert if he find chance more that normal. By way we need one more striker who possese super skill and pass with trickery, finisher long range, creative for bent so will prefect various tactical option depend opponents centre half. i Prefer New creative + bent benteke + any striker, gabby + lone style (or weimann) weimann + any striker. Bowey I dont know him so I can't comment him
