Have to say
« on: February 11, 2018, 02:13:19 PM »
Villa look good, and it will be a tough old game on Saturday. They have power, pace, organisation, and unlike us, can kill games off. We are going to have to be at our absolute best, if we are to get anything out of this game.

Probably need to play Mitrovic this Saturday, give Chester and Terry something to think about.

I’d agree but then Terry hasn’t exactly got pace so AK could be good

In Slavis we trust. Personally I'd give Terry a fast tricky opponent rather than a classic no 9.

No one in this league is all that good except for Wolves. I'm not worried about whether we can match Villa's level next weekend. If we play well, we'll beat them. The concern, from my end, is we haven't played well very often this season. Even in this nine-match unbeaten run, it's hard to say we've had more than three truly good performances. And to me, a lot of that is due to Cairney's issues. We're a totally different proposition when he's running the show.

Yes the result of the Villa game could hinge on Cairney but on the other hand we have shown that with a little bit of luck we can grind out results without Tom. Nice to be able to do without the luck though and simply control the game with Tom pulling the strings.

If we make the playoffs we will then need to beat 2 of the top 6 teams who will have fantastic support.  Saturday could give us an idea about how successful we will be under similar pressure.

Yes , Saturday could well turn out to be a pre run of a play off match, perhaps we should ease up at 3-0 so that we still have tricks up our sleeves for the later games.

To be honest I think they were made to look good by a very poor Birmingham performance, Terry can't handle anyone with pace so I would play AK47 upfront and also let Fred and Sess run at him whenever possible

Mitrovic isn't fully fit yet

Why does a number on here seem to talk us down, we are a good side and Steve Bruce knows this. Whatever tactics he had on Sunday they will be completely different on Saturday, expect a more physical effort with a concentration on stopping us playing football, breaking up the play in midfield by giving away free kicks. COYW.

I want our play to expose Terry's lack of pace.

Some fans, please don't start chanting to Terry "You're mother/father is a thief etc" which we have heard many times. It's in very bad taste, we're better than that. Think about, it will drive him on to do better and prove everyone wrong.

If we have pace, terry will need to stand off so he doesn’t get turned. That in turn gives more space in the midfield. Could work really well
