Really not looking forward to this. If Everton score first then it might get a bit nasty quick

I rate Lampard as one of the most limited managers in the game. If he comes and beats us at home I would be amazed. This should be a straightforward win by the odd goal, but I fear the worst after last week.

If there is a loser, the manager who does will be under a fair bit of pressure. 0-0 bore draw in too-hot conditions it is, then.

With the train strike on Saturday I always go by train to witton usually but because of the strike which bus route will be the best from Birmingham on Saturday to Villa Park.

Everton play 5 at the back. 2 big lads in front of that. Like Bournemouth I fear we will be bullied all over the pitch and concede from a set pieces. How will Gerrard tactically adjust to stop the above happening?

It depends who's available. If they play Anthony Gordon as a lone striker again in a 5-4-1 like they did last week then I'm not too worried.

I have little doubt that we'll take all 3 - I think the players will be up for it after last weekend's embarrassment. The home crowd won't have it.

It'll be fine, Villa fans aren't fickle.

It feels like a tide is starting to turn against SG but there still seems a lot of people that think just give him time, so I dont think there will be a turn on SG anytime soon

Maybe booing - no cabbages

If we dont beat these, and i think we will as they would have been hopefully roasted after last week, then SG is going to get a lot of stick.

We can argue about his tactics or lack of them but, and i appreciate it a cliche, but once they go over the line the players have the responsibility.

I am sure the tactics were not to give away a stupid corner in the first 3 minutes and then stand like statues whilst some guy lumps it towards goal

These players also need to stand up and be counted on Saturday

Going for a 2-1 win to us. Stay positive as enough in life to make us negative. Villa will probably fuck it up but Iím keeping the faith

I think 7, 65 or 67 should all do the trick according to Google Maps.
