There is an alleged line up posted on the news now site (this is Futbol)

                         Nyland

Hutton      Tuanzabee    Chester   Taylor

              McGinn      Bjarnason

Adomah          Grealish              Bolasie

                    Abraham

Not sure if true but if it is already looks 100% more positive than previous line ups this season
It's an ok line up but I'm struggling to see how it's 100% more positive than typical Bruce line ups to be honest.

If that midfield plays ten yards further up the pitch then it will make all the difference.

Will James Chester be captain tomorrow? In the Dean Smith world there will be a rotation policy on the armband.

My 8 year old gets no commitment prizes. The chap who sits next to me has been seriously ill so naturally I bagged his season card....

Charlie wanted to come but was pissed off he would have to miss football training that morning. A late birthday party invite and I/Villa were ditched in favour of pass the parcel, cake and an excellent Lego Star Wars collection!

Waiting for a flight back from Venice to Gatwick. Won't get back to deepest Dorset until 3AM.  Up early to leave at 9AM for Villa Park. Can't wait!
I doff my cap to you DV - wishing you a safe journey , an enjoyable couple of hours at B6 and 3 points secured.
Due to unfortunate circumstances both myself and VCTM jnr are unable to make the journey - can folk please give extra support to make up for our absence - COYL

Anyone know when the press conference is?

No press conference today. But Jim White from talk sport phoned Dean Smith and had a chat live. All positive stuff and seemed very happy with the squad and sounded very upbeat …..
