I don't know about Jimmy Melia's white shoes. I know that they're the only league team with four words in their name. Possibly. I haven't bothered to check this fact.

Queen of the South?

Bugger. I'm revising my criteria to English League!

Jota definitely out. He's had surgery on a hernia he's had for a year.

Any indication how long he's out for?

Yeah, life's too short to be hating Brighton.

It's already pretty much a full-time job finding the time to hate Blose, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Millwall, Luton, Leeds, Liverpool, Man United, "Rangers", Queen's Park, Real Madrid, Lazio, Zenit St Petersburg and Beitar Jerusalem.

And that's only the teams I really hate, not the ones I dislike quite a lot.

I did chuckle knowing your posts on here when I was reading a season preview for Scotland and one of the league one clubs fans put Clyde as their most disliked club due to signing David Goodwillie and also having some other player in their squad who had a brush with the law....

Everybody hates Clyde! To be honest I wasn't keen on us signing Goodwillie. I suppose everybody deserves a second chance but it still doesn't sit right. On the other hand we could be in the Lowland League rather than League One if not for his goals. I didn't want Villa to sign Terry either, nobody every listens to my views, it's like Brexit all over again!

Looking forward to this game, we are a team that should be full of confidence at the moment following the stuffing of the canaries and the likes of wee John and Tyrone having exceptional international performances.

After beating Spurs 3-0, they will be full of confidence too so I hope we get on the front foot from the off and dominate them.

Jota definitely out. He's had surgery on a hernia he's had for a year.

The rags health insurance policy wouldn't cover it.

Smith said he would be out for a couple of weeks in his pre match press conference.

Despite the Goodwille factor, your maniacal support of Clyde is swaying me from Cowdenbeath. On the other hand I may be just a glory hunter.

Referee: David Coote
VAR: Martin Atkinson.

Heaton
Guilbert, Engels, Mings, Targett;
McGinn, Nakamba, Hourihane;
El Ghazi, Wesley, Grealish

Generally Brighton are considered better at home and i don't rate them generally.
I wouldn't be surprised if one of their players like Stephens or Montoya gets sent off!!!

With player injuries and their poor away record
(Brighton haven't won away since August on opening day away Watford . WLDL)

I envisage a comfortable win by 2+ goal margin. Say a 3 maybe 4 -1 victory.


From 4 away matches
Brighton have the lowest amount of accurate shots in the league . With only  7 shots on target.
They have conceded the joint second most shots on target 22.

And 8 corners is the lowest in the league
These stats back up how really poor they are and how it's a great chance to win and win well.

Overall Brighton last 6 form table are 17th
won 1 drawn 2 lost 3   
Scored 4 conceded 9
Overall this season they have averaged 1 goal every game.

The goals Brighton concede tend to be mainly second half .
They do concede in first 10 minutes and generally have a lot  of goals against them in last 20 mins of matches .
They also have had conceded frequently leading up to half time 40+min Or period after .

This all points to a Villa win.

You do have to take that into consideration. 6-0 Villa.
