Im not sure adomah can play that role

I'd play Kodjia but if we need someone else to start / come on, I'd be looking atRHM

I'm sure he could, he makes intelligent runs and is a good finisher.

Yes, for being bold in Belgium. Should be back for Yeovil, bet he's thrilled.

2-0. Grealish to score a 25 yard screamer.

Didn't know that, thought De Laet just wasn't in SB's plans again.

Anyway think 2-2 tomorrow. Our defence wasn't great v Hull and Wigan actually have goals in them this time as opposed to their toothless attack two years back.

Can see it being a pretty open game as think they'll come to attack.

This feels very strange but I'm actually, don't tell anyone, looking forward to this, now.

With you on that Chris. Some new signings, meet the new owners, sold out, a crescendo for Jack. It's going to be fun and we will batter them.

Wigan are one of the few clubs we have a losing home record against in the league. W2 L3.

Given they've a weak defence I really hope we put more of our attacking players out than we did v hull, where Kodjia was a bit isolated and didn't do a good job of a lone striker

Get green in that team!

Gone for a win - based on nothing more than early season blind optimism and the huge feel good factor generated by new investment into the club, telling spurs to fuck off over grealish and the away win at Hull. I’d really love to be at VP for this match. Hope everyone who goes has a top day out and 3 points in the bag for us.

Woken up excited. One of those where I just want to put my Villa shirt on and go straight there.
Holte is going to be rocking, new players are going to be awed at the place they've come to, and the reception he gets is going to erase any pangs of disappointment Jack might have.
We're going to smash Wigan in the best display since the Dingles didnt know what hit them.
I might even cut Bruce some slack. Unless he plays Taylor again.

Villa are back, and it feels good...

Wigan will be full of confidence I would imagine but we should have enough to take the points. 3-1 Kodjia off the mark, Grealish and a Hutton overhead kick.

I really, really hope Kodjia has a better game.  A goal for him would do him the world of good.

I think you'd see a different player if he scores, he looks very low on confidence at the minute.
