Aston Villa v Everton Pre Match
« on: August 08, 2022, 10:41:50 AM »
Saturday 13 August Kick Off 12:30PM
Villa Park

So let's put opening day nightmare behind us and see how we line up and get our season  up and running. Everton were also not too bright against Chelsea and have lot of players out, so on paper Villa should do them but that's what we said about Bournemouth.

On paper we look good until they're put out as a confused mess on the pitch. Gerrard, another in the long line of tactically illiterate managers we've had for 10 years.

Reposting from a different thread:

Starting to think, in answer to the Watkings question - maybe we start neither? Reckon Buendia could do that false 9 trick very well, giving Bailey someone to run off on the inside right and dragging centrebacks out of position.

I know, I'm overthinking it etc. But the fact is that neither of the two main forwards' names on the teamsheet give me any confidence at 2pm UK time on any given Saturday.

Obviously he'll play Carlos and Coutinho.  Not sure he'd change the CB pair after one game!

Despite my reservations regarding the manager I'm fairly confident we will prevail on Saturday.

There will be changes to the team but nothing spectacular, perhaps Doug for JJ, Chambers for Konsa but Coutinho will be there again.

It's the first home game, on a boiling Saturday (according to the forecast) and a full house. Short term we will be happy but questions remain about the long term.

2-1

I hope that come 2pm this Saturday that you'll have loads of confidence in them.

Where to start?
Before last w/e I'd have gone for a win!
Now not so sure.
Buendia, Mings, Watkins to certainly start. Maybe even a starting place for Tim alongside Kamara. This would require a new captain. If it's Martinez, so be it, but I'd return to Mings.
None or little of this will happen.
A tense draw for me with some meaningful and workable coaching and tactics and an actual plan.

Zero - the chances of that being the starting line up is zero percent
