"Through the thirds"....best said it an Irish accent.

Isn't everything?

Depends on the county!

Fair enough, let's exclude Louth.

Oh I don't know. Saffron (Age 21) had some very interesting things to say about the Speaker debacle yesterday.

Daniel Harris in the Guardian predicts that Forest will trouble us. But then again, he never has a good word to say about the Villa and he recently let slip that he’d only just learnt what the ‘D’ is for, which is shocking for a longtime football ‘journalist’.

I think he said they do have the ability to trouble us, as they have other top sides, which is true. They do have some dynamic players, but we just need to play to our potential and we’ll win.

Don't feel like we generally play that well against Forest, even when we do beat them.

Should have won that 5-5 game though. We missed some sitters and they scored from a cross and a soft shot straight at Nyland.

Hope we keep the momentum going, but I'm never confident against this lot..... same with Wolves - Both teams seem to have had our number in recent meetings.

Nipper says 3-1 Villa so I'd be more than happy with that. UTV

Pau is the key for me. His quality basically frees up our midfield and it gives us a chance to overrun teams. Bouba is a big miss, but if we had only one available to us and I had to choose it’d be Pau in terms of his importance to our game.

Absolutely, When you have Pau in the team no one in midfield needs to drop to receive the ball he will just find a player. Obviously I wish Konsa was next to him as our insurance, But we just have deal with that and hope Lenglet can step up again.

The Trees will be Tricky, but the good guys will prevail.

2-1 us. Fancy Diaby to score if he comes on.

Wrap up warm everyone who's going!

I'm at work in deepest darkest Leicestershire. There are radios and the maintenance team lead is a Forest season ticket holder. I'm handing the site over to a Forest fan at 18:00 too.

Do not fucking lose, Villa.
