I thought Tomáš Souček was a great signing for them, exactly the type of player I'd like to see added to our midfield. Power, strength and no shortage of skill, we really don't have that type of player right now and one we'll need to keep an eye on Monday night.

As for the result, it really depends which Aston Villa turn up. We'll need to be at our best as they, very much like ourselves, are capable of top and poor performances, very Jekyll and Hyde. With 3 defeats in the last 4 games we need to turn up and I think we will but they'll probably have a Ray Stewart penalty in the last minute to steal a point.

2-2

Inspirational opening gambit Dave!!
I thought they’d really struggle this season after a pre season of seeming discontent from the outside looking in. They’ve had a decent start though and have some decent players. They also have some very average ones.
The kind of game I can see us slipping up and losing and the winning away run has to come to an end sometime, then it will be a bit of panic mode in the ranks.
But sod it, a thoroughly refreshed Grealish and McGinn inspire villa to a 2-1 win.
I’d stick hourihane in for Barklay and maybe pack the midfield and be a bit more conservative than recent games.

Whichever team scores first will win. Them's the rules. 8 and counting this season...

Got a horrible feeling it will be 2-1 to Alf Garnett's mob.

Hope that's plain bang wrong!
Scoring first seems even more vital this season, every time we concede I think thats done it.

we need to win this so I can take rip the piss out of the ex-cocknee fans that populate the Village. They always go on about how great the East End is, but none of them have lived there for 30 years or so...

Please Villa a Arsenalesque  type performance and victory would be lovely...

Plain bang wrong but worse, it's also fake news.

I have gone for a draw. West Ham have had a decent start to the season but when I have seen them on TV they
have rarely impressed me. They seem to be inconsistent and have good and bad spells in games.

I thought we'd lose to Arsenal, I got that wrong. I thought we'd beat Brighton, I got that wrong.  On that basis, 3-0 West Ham.

This one will be tough. Score first and we’re in with a decent shout. Go behind and we’ll struggle as usual. First goal crucial- they’ve had a decent. Start to the season like us. 2-1 Villa, with our first goal in the 26th minute 😉

we have had plenty of time to prepare properly for this match, unlike the last one when we only had one training session ! We will be back to our magnificent best with Mr Hologram filling in wonderfully for the absent Barkley, and even getting on the scoresheet again with a beauty.   3-1 Villa 😀😎

Typical, Antonio likely to return for them following a hamstring problem....
