Aston Villa v Newcastle United Pre-Match Thread
« on: January 21, 2021, 11:42:12 AM »
I hope the players have blown off some cobwebs and have ample fire in the gut to go out and beat Newcastle on Saturday.

Martinez

Targett
Mings
Konsa
Cash

Dougie
Ramsey

Barkley

Grealish
Watkins
El Ghazi

The same level of commitment defensively and off the ball, but I expect us 10 yards further up the pitch and right on the front foot. No excuses, lets beat them.

I imagine Traore will keep him place instead of El Ghazi but I think we'll beat these and beat them well.

We should hammer the alehouse football merchants but need to be careful not to be too complacent.

If I was Dean I'd be playing on the injustice side of last night but also emphasise the need to be professional as well. Play our game, Ramsey in for McGinn.

3-0

Newcastle are a definition of mediocrity and that's when they are doing OK. They are not doing OK at the moment so we can have no reasons not to win comfortably.

2-0 Villa.

We need to, and should, stuff these fuckers out of sight.

Channel all the anger from last night into a 5-0 mauling.

If we score early this will be an absolute mauling - I could genuinely see us getting 5,6 or even 7.  Newcastle have virtually nothing going forward, complete plodders in midfield and a defence that will fold like a pack of cards if they go a couple behind.

6-0 to Villa and Watkins to get a hat-trick.

I will be very disappointed if we don't take all three points from this one. Newcastle are fifteenth and have drawn one and lost four of their last five games. Their squad on paper isn't anything special. Hopefully we will all be playing Bruce bingo and ticking off all of his usual excuses after we beat them.

Did chuckle when I read somewhere “With Dean Smith being sent off, it means there won’t be a football manager in either dugout at the weekend”.

I hope we’ve got some pent up rage saved up and we absolutely smash these out of sight.

I think it may be tougher than some people think. Bruce will set them up to keep it tight so we may have to be patient. That said, I've not seen Newcastle play recently so I don't know how bad they've been.

They haven’t scored for 13 hours apparently, so I think we know what’s coming!

Early goal and we'll be fine in this as they're very poor and we match up pretty well v them anyway.

3-0.

Losing to Sheffield United (even with 10 men) without having a serious shot for over an hour is all you need to know.

If you can't impose yourselves on a team who pre kick off had 2 points in middle of January you know you have issues.

They will just come for a 0-0 and we'd have to play our worst 90 minutes of the season to lose this so  not too concerned.

Do the things we've been doing pretty much all season and we'll win this.
