Sincere apologies for this coming late, but I had a late night and then I was rudely woken by the wife, informing me that I had agreed to a trip to town today.
I honestly thought this a bit strange as I cherish staying at home on a Saturday but then she reminded me that while I was opening my 12th beer, I phoned the local sports bar and double checked that I could borrow the internet and a power point to do this from the pub.
So, it all adds up and also explains why this is coming late but doesn´t explain this splitting headache I´ve got.
I´ll be updating tis page and well, let the banter begin.
Nothing yet, but don´t expect that many changes. Taken from the BBC:
Aston Villa (from): Friedel, Luke Young, Knight, Davies, Shorey, Milner, Petrov, Barry, Ashley Young, Carew, Agbonlahor, Heskey, Reo-Coker, Guzan, Sidwell, Delfouneso, Gardner, Clark, Cuellar.
We will try to win the last two games. It's as simple as that. If we drop points it ends up doing someone a favour.
Unless we have a real crop of injuries I am still looking to include quality, experienced players such as Nigel Reo-Coker and Steve Sidwell, who is dying for a game at this minute.
For the record, I´d love to see Sidwell play, replacing Barry wouldn´t be a bad call either.
Actual Team News
Friedel; Milner, Davies, Cuellar, Shorey; A Young, Barry, Petrov, Heskey; Agbonlahor, Carew. Subs: Sidwell, Guzan, Gardner, Clark, Reo-Coker, Knight, Delfouneso.
This looks like 4-3-3 which I quite like only because it is better than 4-4-2 but still, it isn´t as good as 4-5-1 or 4-2-3-1. Martin O´Neill has to figure this out.
It also looks like Milner is at right back. This is madness and just goes to show, for some, that O´Neill doesn´t actually know what he is doing.
He needs more time, but this team selection is going to get us beaten today. I hope not, but, it really doesn´t look good.
