Luton look ok going forward but they don't appear bothered about defending much.

Luton can be decent. But there is a reason why they are where they are. Let’s not make them out to be any more than that. Like with Sheff Utd away, we do our job as planned and practiced they won’t be an issue.

Yes if we play well we’ll win. We’ve just got to make sure we control the game and don’t give them a sniff. They concede a lot of goals.

We are a bit vulnerable at the back, so controlling the game and minimalizing their chances and set pieces is paramount.

We need to defend corners / set pieces far better this week

Guess Emery might confirm later but are we expecting Torres, Konsa and Duran in the squad for Luton?

Of the three promoted teams, Luton are definitely the trickiest opponents. On their day they are very good. Sheffield United and Burnley are permashit.

Yep and it’s a tricky place to go if you allow them to get up a head of steam. That said, we’re better and if we put in a performance we’ll win.

We are 4th for good reason. They are 3rd bottom for good reason. Play even close to the way we can and we'll win. This is the new Aston Villa. Unai Emery's Aston Villa.

I've just put the Holy Trinity chap's Forest show on whilst I'm in the kitchen, and he's said we've not lost on a Saturday this season since the opening game. Is that right?

Cracking kick off time for those of us with our arse firmly planted to the sofa. Beer in hand, take away ordered, I expect to be entertained!

To be fair I’d take a scruffy 0-1 all day long.

I wouldn’t be holding anyone back for Spurs, if Konsa and Pau are good to go then play them.

highly believable given we rarely play Saturdays now

One of the benefits of getting Champions League football is that we'd get more Saturday games again. I find myself increasingly struggling to be arsed on any other day.

We've only lost 6 all season, Newcastle x 2 Man U x2, Forest and Liverpool.

I'm fully aware of that mate but I'm struggling to see the relevance to my post about only really wanting to go to the match on a Saturday afternoon.
