As much as I hate playing with 1 striker, thats pretty solid.

As I expected.

Now let's hope Hourihane and Onomah are given good licence to break into their box.

If they're just told to sit alongside Whelan we know the Bruce mindset today.

Jota is starting for them btw. Hope Whelan is on it as he demolished us at Brentford.

Their official Twitter page is constantly using the hashtag "OurCityIsBlue!" the small time gimps.

Clearly, our "The City Is Ours" chant hasn't got to them. At all.

Onomah was almost playing as an extra forward at times last week.

I'm happy with the team, it looks ok and a decent bench too.

Please win indeed Villa

They're 433 too...I thought Bruce would match them up,especially as we looked a threat last week with the same formation.We'll win this if we can control possession.

Surprised Grealish hasn't made the bench..Think we'll be scratching around for creativity off the bench if we need it..Pleased to see Jedinak back on there though.

Let's ensure there's 11 of us at the end..Aggressive but nothing that's going to play into their hands.

Come on me babbies!

Can we please keep noses off this thread? Pages and pages of back and forths get tedious.

With Halloween coming up I went to a fancy dress shop to buy a Dracula costume.
The girl offered me a Birmingham City shirt.
I said to her "Sorry love, I think you misheard, I said I want to look like a count."
