Come on Villa boys!! Back to back wins would be great! Use the confidence gained from thrashing norwich to win another 3 points. UTV!

I cant see him changing a team that scored five last time out. I think he'll keep a winger on the bench to try and change it if need be. I'll go for a 2-2 draw. Hourihane and Big Wes with ours.

My elder son's Godfather is a self-described "Hove Nancy" (he's so straight he's comfortable with this apparently 🤐) and he reckons they're on the verge of playing a 3-5-2, the premise being that crowding the midfield will be their only chance of stifling our creativity.

I'd humbly suggest that they could play a midfield 8 and still wouldn't be able to dispossess SJMcG's arse.

Will be tough for big Wes today, up against Dunk and Duffy, who form a good centre back partnership. Going 2-1 Villa, Tyrone to get the winner.

I was informed several years back that Blackpool had replaced Brighton as the 'Gay Capital Of England'. Maybe it is the big phallic symbol of the Blackpool Tower and the sticks of rock that clinched it.

Lots of Brighton on my train up. They're impeccably behaved, the absolute monsters.

And just as I write that a tiny chorus of Que Sera/Shoot the Palace scum from the pre-pubescents in the vestibule. They were too embarrassed to get to the end.

More as it doesn't happen.

We've never lost at home to Brighton, that won't be changing today. 4-1.

I can see us beating Brighton but losing or drawing against Hove Albion. I don’t really understand why we’re expected to play them both at the same time anyway.

I have a soft spot for Brighton because of this wonderful man.



Sorry to have to ask, but who is it please?

Thank you  :)
