This is an interesting one. Philips being out weakens them, their style of play in most games so far seems setup to be exactly how we'd want them to play, most of their attacking threat seems to be on their left where Cash and Trez do a fantastic job defensively.

All of that means we should be looking at it as a comfortable win but I have a niggly feeling that it'll be harder than that. I've gone for a win and I should be really confident of it but I don't like it when everything seems so stacked in our favour. I'll go for a 4-1 win because that's about how, logically, I see the game going, but I'd be happy to keep the unbeaten run going to match Everton after 5.

I've been swaying to the 4-1 . I loathe that we concede and seeing them other night v wolves they don't look great at finishing in final third but its merely a consolation right so let's take it home and 3pts.

I could see Conor Hourihane playing this one especially if too much for Barkley or Luiz.
But him in the middle to help at set plays also maybe Nakamba for Luiz as lot of game time hes had without rest.

Tests the squad these matches as over playing could result in injury.

Hate is too strong for me, but I have disliked Leeds Utd FC intensly since the Don Revie days. Now they're back. They flatter to deceive and always have done. They're dirty, cynical and proud to be so. They wouldn't have it any other way. "We are Leeds, WE ARE LEEDS" yeah, yeah so what!
 
I'm going 4-0 because I want to keep a clean sheet. It'll be niggly but I think they'll be more worried about us and what we might be capable of.

I wish Gabby would keep it shut, slagging any opponent off in the build up to a game is fucking stupid.

I really dislike Leeds and their scummy fans, so really hope we win this one. It goes back to the LC final when a load of them (10 or so older heads tried to start trouble with 4 of us fairly young lads at a bus stop near the ground. Nothing too bad happened, but Iíve always hated them since that day. Theyíre on a par with Man U, blues and Coventry for me. So come on Villa FTF!


I get and share Man U and Blues but who are Coventry? Never heard of 'em.
yeah I know, but Iím from Nuneaton. Thereís quite a few Cov supporting wankers in that town. And if youíve ever been unlucky enough to have a night out in Coventry, youíd understand. We used to mainly avoid it, preferring Leicester- lot more chilled out - and Brum as we got a bit older and in to the clubbing. Thereís a Cov fan I know in Brisbane who I used to get along with and have a few beers with. He showed his true colours though and I donít see him now. His mrs is a dog head - lovely lady. They used to be pretty good value, but the anti- Villa nonsense was never far from the surface with Steve. Didnít help weíre both fairly passive aggressive. Quite a prominent trait in that part of the Midlands unfortunately.

I was born in Brum but my parents moved to Coventry when I was quite young, we went down in 1967 as they arrived in the top flight for the first time, until 1975 when we finally made it back I never felt any animosity towards Villa from Cov City fans but that changed when we embarked on a very long unbeaten run against them, the hatred grew year on year, as a brummie living there and drinking in their pubs you could really feel it and itís still there today, I expect they were very upset with our last day escape, I wish nothing but the worst for them, vile horrible club.
Ps I left Coventry in 1988 and a few years later returned to Brum 😀

I'm pretty confident. Wolves showed the way to do it on Monday with getting control of game from half time and Leeds really didn't offer much when 1 down.

Phillips out is a big blow as they have other CBs out and not much cover so going to have to rejig their backline around as seems a CB will fill in his role.

Think we'll win this and go top and then the danger game is Southampton who we really struggled to counter their manic press home and away last season.

Don't gift away cheap goals which we haven't done so far and I think it will be pretty comfortable.

A reminder of that 1-1 draw and the Leeds attitude. Its not as long as you but that's how long I've disliked them that match fall out.

How AEG was the player to be sent off beats me . And as for Bamford and Ayling cocky boy attitude ... Well let's give them a good hand me down hidings and see one of those 2 sent off

That video will stir us up . Got me stoked just re-watching.
Remember the countless fouls and vile atmosphere and that was just from watching via TV

As a fanbase they do come across as very self-important considering their relatively modest impact on the game. I think it might be due to being the only club in a one-club city. There aren't fans of other clubs on their doorstep to help knock the corners off theirs. I think it might also be due to them overcompensating for the tainted nature of their most successful period.

Having just checked, they only joined the league in 1921, and have spent 50 seasons in the top flight (54%), 39 in the second (42%), and 3 in the third (4%). They were obviously consistently successful over a 10-year period between the mid-60s and mid-70s, which neatly coincides with our worst period - perhaps why there hasn't ever been a particular rivalry.

I'm very grateful to Derby for beating them in the playoff semi-final. I think they had our number that year.
