    This is a genuine post and prediction on Villa talk... totally clueless!!!

    I think it'll be a competitive game, possibly even a bit fiery. We know Lambert from the past, and although many of us, myself included, grew impatient with his style and we were desperate for a change, he isn't a bad manager by any means.

    I would line up like this, but with the back four and central players to slow the game down and to resist their quick counter attacks, and our wide players to hit them on the counter.

    Johnstone

    Elmo Chester Terry De Laet

    Snodgrass Whelan Hourihane Adomah

    Kodjia Davis

    I think that is a decent side, Wolves are good and a point would be a good result, but I think we can get the win.

    Quaking in my boots over the thought of the Robert Snodgrass-led counter attack

    Their manager Brian Little must be looking forward to the challenge.

    I wonder if Dion Dublin will be holding the line or leading the line

    Hoping they don't start with Saunders up front ;)

    Seriously I haven't watched them other than the forest game where they looked ok, but they've got a good side now and in form...Snodgrass was class for Leeds and Hull his time at the world cup winners was strange that he looked average in an average team.

    David James is shaky in goal but then Julian Joachim could nick a winner for them.

    I see the obvious error that the originator has made. Paul Lambert is the Villa manager of course o_O

    There's talk that we may be purchasing Andy Gray from them, but we may have to sell Steve Daley first to help cover the cost.
    Could end up a UK record sale and a UK record buy.
    We may even get to the league cup final and with Gray scoring the winner.
    You can only but dream.

    Didn't any of the other Villa fans pick him up on his lack of knowledge and berate him, violently, for being a thick ****? Surely they did ...

    I take it that this Villa fan as either:

    (A) just woke from a coma and hasn't read the papers.

    (B) lives abroad

    (C) only has eyes for Villa.

    (D) isn't from this planet

    Really? I thought they were lucky that game. Forest were the better side second half, they just didn't have much up front.

    Villa won with a great free kick but offered nothing else all that second half.

    The last two away games they've won convincingly against Barnsley and Burton, but the last two home games they've snuck across the line against Bolton and Forest in my opinion.

    Or this is the standard normal mentality of your average Birmingham based Aston Villa fan?

    Sounds like he has a promising career ahead of him as a football journalist, any jobs at the express and star?

    I hope this is the ignorant mindset all fans and pundits have of us. By the time they realise what's going on, we're 9 points clear at the top and sailing towards the title.

    To be fair to him I take little interest in what they are doing in all honestly - didn't realise they loaned Snodgrass until a couple of weeks ago

    Rosehill would have been making ridiculously gloomy predictions like the club being bought by unscrupulous property developers, relegation to the Fourth Division and a humiliating FA Cup exit to a non-league side from up north. Quite laughable really.

    It's brilliant isn't it.
    I don't see how anyone could be so utterly clueless to what's going on at other clubs in the same division as them!

    Has the original poster decided which side Andy Gray will play for? That must confuse his brain cell even further! :eek:

    I've read that thread on their forum and jokes aside, they're a well informed and reasonable bunch on the whole. They know we're very dangerous in attacking areas but reckon Brucies preferred tactic of sitting back and hitting on the counter could reap rewards for them. I can see them sitting deep and irritating us.

    We'll need to get past Ken McNaught of course.
