Nailed-on draw and we'll be out-possesed and out-footballed. If Dean Smith was truly a Villa fan he would have let us beat them by now. Sugarbag.

Bruce can only paper over the cracks for so long...hope Im wrong but were due a loss and defeat in our 5th game would be about right. 1-2 Brentford.

Well, I don't know if it is on AVTV but I will not be paying 6 to watch a Bruce team on a shitty out of synch stream again. Also, we will probably lose as Fistface continues with his 'hope somebody does something' tactics.

My Dad asked AVTV about the sound/picture issue. Evidently, due to the 'latency', we should be lucky we get sound and picture anywhere near matching each other. They also announced a refund to all for the Wigan match.

We're actually the main game on Sky. All the other midweek games are on the red button.

I suppose four points from this and Reading wouldn't be bad, but it really would be nice to beat both.

First real test of the season. We rarely get a kick against Brentford so I think it'll be a 1-1 draw.

Aren't some getting carried away by Brentford as on their day very decent and capable but can also put on some ineffective performances.

I think the good thing in back if 2 poor performance by villa that we will step up and win perhaps 2/3-1.

Can see similar team but with Taylor and Houirhane and Elmo in team

Nyland
Hutton
Tuanzebe
Chester
Taylor
Houirhane
Mcginn
Grealish
Elmo
Adomah
Kodija

If we play Hutton on the right with Taylor on the left and Hourihane through the middle, we will be absolutely hammered.

Key that Tuanzebe plays centre-back in this one (and all others ongoing) for me. Brentford have lots of pace and movement in attack so defensive pace will be key. Playing Jedinak there again would mean having to defend much deeper than necessary.

Jedinak playing at all makes us so one dimensional.  He can't run, and he can't pass very well, so even though I'm not a fan of Bjarnason at all, he's the better option, as at least he gets around the pitch.
