They too have a big bugger up front so expect Jedi to stay in and be rested against Bristol.
If fit Bolasi for El Ghazi

Other than that as we were.im missing this as in Spain.

I reckon this will be a draw 1-1.

34k+ sold as of today. Decent crowd considering a lot of folk want the manager gone and our football makes eyes bleed.

I honestly can't call this one.  They are an improving side generally and we seem to be, er, in transition.  Just as likely to win 5-1 as lose 1-2.

Barry Bannan has been in some form but hopefully is subdued on his homecoming.
They lost 2-1 to forest away on wed though

Now with our attacking play and the 2 up top as drive would say they re a threat to anybody.

Villa have scored in every league match this season and I think a couple here
Let's take another win 3-1

I think the Wednesday fans still a bit salty from their beating at Hillsborough and their claims of red bias

We need to improve to win this, not sure if were able to play well for more than 45 minutes of a game. Average 1-1 draw.

No doubt we'll leak at least a comedy single goal - one of those trickle slowly into the back of the net whilst everyone looks on. I want say 2-1, I really do. But a solid 1-1 again looms. I hope I'm wrong.

So the Wendies come to town on Saturday. They're the club I have developed a dislike for in the Championship. Absurd level of self aggrandizement in our first season down, a coach load vomming out a load of fat Yorkshire racists signing about Pakis on the streets of Brum at quarter to 3 in the afternoon, their chavs thinking they're Johnny Ten Men outside the away end.

I'll take a particular satisfaction in shovelling this lot.

They don't appear as woeful as last year, more bang average. Which is what this league appears full to the brim of.

I'm not sure whether Bolasie is fit to start but if he is, get him in.

Hutton
Chester
Tuanzebe
Elmo

Connor
McGinn

Kodjia
Grealish
Bolasie

Tammy

I think having Grealish central would suit us more as we lose something with him out wide.
Same for me, but possibly with Jedi in for Hourihane.

Will be interesting to see if he keeps two up top or if Abraham will play up front on his own and Kodjia will go out wide.  Wouldn't surprise me if Bruce goes with the former and Bjarnason or Whelan come in.  After his comments in midweek about Jedinak at CB, I can see him staying there with the team looking something like:

                                           Nyland

Elmohamady              Chester             Jedinak         Hutton

                                  Bjarnason / Whelan

                              Grealish                         McGinn

Adomah                              Abraham                     Kodjia


Not sure Bolasie is fit enough to start just yet and I think El Ghazi will be on the bench after Tuesday, so Albert gets a start.
