Isn't that what you get after spending a muddy weekend at Glastonbury or is that trench-foot?
HeeHee, very good.

Nah, he's stubborn. He won't change formation.

Ramsey was hooked because of the booking I can't see him being dropped.

Ah fair enough.

McGinn tends to get booked 10 times a season so hopefully the subbing when on a yellow will also apply to him this season.

A toothless Villa against a toothless Everton.

A 0-0 draw it is then with a tannoy announcement at the end of the game for the services of an NHS dentist.

(No chance, mate. Like hen's teeth they are)

With highs of 91°on Saturday in Birmingham, we're probably lucky to kick off at half 12.

We should have the advantage with our pre-season trip to Oz to acclimatise and the fact that Toffees don't do well in the heat.

I am still optimistic that the Bournemouth performance was 'one of those days', and not a portent of what is to come this season.

I do think that buying a better DM and the emergence of Iroegbunam should see us be able to play better, as it has limited our options in midfield. I also think we needed competition in central defence  and with Chambers and Costa added to Mings and Konsa we now have four good players to select from there.

Whilst I agree that neither Watkins or Ings are pulling up any trees lately, both have shown ability in the not too distant past, and Bailey and Archer both looked great in pre-season.

Everton are a team we often play well against, and I am expecting a much better performance and a comfortable win. If it turns out like Bournemouth I will start to worry more though.

The press are reporting that Rondon may be back? No doubt for his one good game of the season and his only goal?

I am fed up being gloomy about the Villa so parking my doubts until after the game and hoping I have no need to revisit them.

The players should be raring to put things right after last week. We need to be on the front foot from the start, score early and give them a proper hammering.

Been out in a field digging potatoes and too hot for my brain to work properly!

In the dim and distant past when I first set my username, I lived in Ashton-In-Makerfield hence the name. Should change it to WoodplumptonVilla now I guess.

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?
