From the official Villa twitter site

From Dean's press conference

Jack, doubtful
Albert, highly unlikely
Taylor, Henri, Mile and Bree all definitely out

So the Scumbag Blose did for Albert and the Shitty Baggies crocked Jack!

Is BB available I'd play him behind Conor and SJM ?

Frustrating that Albert isn't quite ready as I'd like to see how El Ghazi would do playing just off Abraham. With his technical ability think he'd do well in that position and could be a decent plan B for the season.

Maybe a game for two strikers perhaps? Stoke concede loads of goals away from home. 2 at Reading and 2 at Rotherham lately so could be a game to bring Hogan in.

They basically never score more than 2 and often 0 or 1

They've got a good defence but then so did Boro and forest

Fancy Abraham to bags a couple

Looks like it'll be this team:
Nyland
Elmo Chester Tuanzebe Cafu
Whelan
Hourihane McGinn
El Ghazi Abraham Bolasie
Subs: Bunn Jedinak Hogan and god knows who else

I think Oscar's team is most likely with possibly O'Hare on the bench. It'll be another tough game as they have picked up in recent weeks so I'll go for a 2-2 draw.

The weather forecast is very poor for match time. Very cold, wet and windy. Snow possible.

Of course the weather's going to be bad. Leeg will be stood outside selling H&V :)

Villa Win. Could El Ghazi play in Jacks position?

Yes, but there's no one else left to play wide because Albert's out and Elmo has to play right back

Fuck it, get young O'Hare in there.

Keep the two 8s, keep the width and give these Clayheads a solid hammering.
