Yes thatís me. Play your best team in every competitive game. I do not like this modern day fanning about with weak selections for cup games. Aston Villa football club was set up to compete in every game.

A long time ago.

We scratched the first time we entered the FA Cup, supposedly as we were worried we'd get smashed out of sight.

Itís 2020, clubs do not field their strongest 11 in the 5th round of the league cup, it hurts but itís reality.

I'm absolutely disgusted about the Villa side in the 5th round of the 2020 LC.

It would be great if we could but we just can't. We kicked off our season 17 days ago and we've already played five games.

At the end of the day it was a calculated risk and it didnít pay off.

Looking at the team last left in the competition is I really worth getting knickers in a twist.

Imagine if Grealish, Luiz it SJM had played tonight and picked up injuries?

I can see why he kept faith given the same team comfortably won at Bristol City who are ahead of Stoke in the championship table.

I think if we'd had another Fulham type opponent on Sunday we'd have seen likes of Grealish and McGinn involved tonight. However we need them 100% on Sunday to have a chance of a result and way game went tonight they'd have wasted up too much energy.

It's frustrating but it's not like the final is going to have any fans if it's still being played early March.

That might be a myth. The reason we scratched according to our Oracle could have been in protest at Oxford University (our opponents) cheating in the previous round.

I like that. Thatís a much more Corinthian answer and sits well in my world of goodness about our club.

They stuck 6 past Birmingham the previous round. No relation to sha though, just some team called Birmingham.

You could apply that to any game really.

I would have played sone fringe players but would have tried to keep a strong spine still.
Lansbury, Hause were useless tonight and are clearly not good enough for the premier league.
Tonight also showed, we need to sign another striker in the window.

That Sebastian Flyte turned out for Oxford University when registered as an Eton College player.  Oxford University should have been thrown out of the competition.
