Aston Villa v Boro Pre Match Thread

Surprised this hasn’t been started yet so, as I did the one in the week, I’ll,take the lead.

I’m confident for this game and I’m sure the players are. Sure Boro won’t fancy playing us after their recent form and the result earlier in the season.

It’ll be tight but we’ll win 2-0. Tammy and Conor

Good man Dave. Let’s get this going. We’ll have too much for Dino Penis. More fluid, more ideas, more energy. Stick me down for 3-1

Tammy, Jack, Mings

8-8. Don't blame me, blame the precognition of maths.

Failing that, 3-0. Same starting 11 as Wednesday, if Forest couldn't play their way effectively through our minimalist midfield, Boro won't.

Green, Abraham, Mings. All in the first half, Tiny spends second half with 11 behind the ball to hold what he has.

Huge game.

Given their recent form and that we can close the gap to a point, I fully expect Pulis to come and sit deep, pack the midfield and keep things as tight as possible.

The first goal is huge and we must get it.

Same team as started on Wednesday for me.

Don't seem to do particularly well at home, 2 wins out of 12 games since 2000.
I reckon Pullis will come for 0-0 hoping to nick one, so we need to score early on to open them up.

The issue will be we now all have expectations of a simple win.
Is their big lump of a CH suspended following his dismissal?

Could be of benefit and first goal critical in a tight affair

This is one of those games that feels pivotal. Win and we keep the momentum up and pressure on going into the international break. Lose or draw and we hand the initiative back to others.

We will blow them away.  Our first 11 is too good for anybody in this league.

We have gained 8 points on them from the last 3 games

We all know a Pulis team is hard to beat

Draw for me  :-X

Pressure is on Pulis apparently and they are out of form so I expect them to set up not to lose.

Villa win for me. 2-0.
