Probably the team he should have changed to last week although Davis for Kodija maybe who was awful.
The problem is how are we going to hold on to the ball in attack?

Think we'll have too much for them, but it'll be hairy at the back. 3-2 Villa. Hourihane, Kodjia, Adomah - not necessarily in that order.

Seems a genuine lack of enthusiasm judging from this thread!

Will be a turgid game as usual and not helped by the our delightfully named storm Brian.

Would have liked to have seen Whelen replaced by O'Hare, Onomah in Whelen's holding role, with O'Hare supporting Kodjia.

Also, what's happened to Bree?

Fulham play nice football, will possibly have too much for Bruce's anti version.

Up the Villa, anyhow. Hopefully three points and into the top 6.

We really have a very strong squad for this division even with the six out with injuries and suspension. Seems like Hourihane is being shunted to the left in that formation.

That's the manager to a tee.

If he carries on with such nonsense, he won't be here much longer.

On paper, we've a decent team, though. It'd be nice to see them rebel a little, break free of the obvious shackles. Am not sure they'd be in Bruce's good books afterwards.

I expect to see Bertie and Snodgrass high up the pitch.

And Hourihane. Let Whelen and Ononmah hold the centre.
