I've probably jinxed it and gone for a Villa win.

Don't care by how many or who scores. Just win.

2-0. Freshen it up a bit. Taylor at LB Hutton switch to RB and push Elmo up to RW. Maybe Jack instead of Josh. I'd leave Kodj on the bench and bring him on only if required. I'd rather he be back to full fitness before we use him again.

If the three doubts are out I reckon that's what he'll do. Alternative is to play jack and Adomah wide w hourihane at 10, Jedi and whelan deeper. Looks defensive on paper but we've actually looked a real threat in the last two games once Jedi came on. Gives us a very solid platform to spring from, tho perhaps more suitable away from home

Don't want to see Elmo in one of the advanced forward positions again, it didn't work start of season and he's done fine at RB.

Rather see De Laet there as he nearly scored in the Fulham game from that position.

Tomorrow might not be the worst game for two out and out strikers, Sheff Weds play 4-4-2 so if we match them up I like to think we won't suffer too much.

This is a must win as Bristol City are playing Cardiff this weekend so we can gain on one or both of them.  The other teams around us have winnable games too so we must keep up.

2-1 win, similar to the Fulham match.

Kodjia is our best player (despite never passing to his own team mates), so surely (?) your start with your best player? Harsh on whoever is left out though.

Sheffield Wednesday aren't doing well away from home, to say the least. One win very early on in the season but, since then, beaten by complete pish like Small Heath and Bolton.

A game we simply should win.

Oh God, not another "must win"?

Can't we just have one game where a draw wouldn't be the end of the World as we know it? The pressure is getting to me.

Steve 'must win' Bruce. It's sounds familiar.

We should win this, but Sheffield need results. Think it will go to whoever wants it more. I hope we set up with Davis starting.

We all have the potential to be a grass. Even you.
