If we play both Morrison and Brunt in midfield, surrender.Problem is lack of energy , half of our team cannot function properly for 90 minutes. Villa can afford to lose by one goal for extra-time , we cannot go to extra-time with our players


That is a serious concern of mine too. Other teams all season have seemed fitter than us. We looked knackered after an hour on Saturday.

Gibbs (LM)

Field (DM)
Johansen (DM)

Phillips (RW)

I don't agree with both Brunt and Morrison being in mid field.
But having stated that, gawd knows who I would put there other than "blooding" another young 'un.

That is the big problem - very few options! I have noticed however that I didn't include Murphy. As easily forgettable as his performances have been, I would include him on the bench instead of either Bartley/Tosin. We need as many attacking options as possible.

                              Field
Edwards    Harper        Johansen     Phillips
 
                              Rodriguez

Subs Bond, Livermore, Adarabioyo, Townsend, Hoolahan, Leko, Brunt
we need a line up like this to force a win with youth and loads of pace ,but probably start brunt and Morrison and get overrun as usual

I would rather see Hoolahan throwing in than Morrison. Still think it’s criminal how little game time Wes has had.

Edwards    Harper        Johansen     Phillips

I think I would have Brunt in there ahead of Johansen as an older head with the two young uns. Philips is still lacking pace and match fitness so I’m 50/50 on whether to just give him 45 and bring Leko if needs be

We have to be 4 at the back tonight, if we are in a five I will be extremely disappointed.

Johnstone

Holgate   Dawson   Hegazi   Gibbs

Harper   Brunt

Phillips   Johansen   Murphy

J Rod

Harper interchangeable for Field I guess, but I would not go Mozza as the lack of midfield legs would be frightening.

Johnstone

Holgate
Dawson
Hegazi
Gibbs

Field
Johansen

Phillips
Hoolahan
Edwards

Rodriguez

That would be my team.

I could see Shan going with something similar but replacing Hoolahan with Brunt and swapping Brunt and Johansen around.

I'm guessing Shan will make something like:

Johnstone

Holgate
Dawson
Bartley
Hegazi
Gibbs

Brunt
Johansen
Phillips

Murphy
Rodriguez

4-1-4-1:
                           Johnstone

Holgate       Dawson          Hegazi        Gibbs

                               Field

Phillips         Johansen         Brunt        Edwards

                            Rodriguez

or

4-2-3-1:
                           Johnstone

Holgate       Dawson          Hegazi        Gibbs

                    Field           Johansen

         Edwards         Phillips           Montero

                            Rodriguez


Subs pretty much pick themselves in both. Wouldn't have Morrison in the squad, nor Harper as he seems disinterested. I'd have 2 of Bartley, Adarabioyo, Mears and Townsend (doesn't matter who as I don't really rate any of them). Hoolahan would be in there and probably a couple of the youngsters.

With the lack of strikers we now have available, you would assume one of Tulloch, Rogers or Soule will make the bench tonight.

Don't think we'll see any crap or bust approach tonight, Shan has already advised patience. He's also laying it on thick about the part the fans can play and I have to agree.The Villa fans bought every decision on Saturday and the ref was swayed, we need to do the same and create a really hostile atmosphere.
Not going to put a team selection up because I'm not bothered what 11 comes out so I'm going to do the only thing I can to influence the game and that's get stuck in from the 1st whistle. Games like this is what football's all about, tonight's not about money or Chairmen or racked off Chief Executives, it's about us!

I think Shan's selection will be much more cautious than people are expecting tonight. I would look to have a starting XI that could be quite flexible tactically. It is a shame that Phillips isn't match fit, I did find it surprising that he didn't start a game in the run-in to build his fitness up. I think I would go (although i expect Shan's selection to be different):

Johnstone

Holgate
Dawson
Hegazi

Phillips
Harper
Brunt
Johansen (Field if Johansen isn't fit)
Gibbs

Rodriguez
Murphy

Bond, Adarabioyo, Townsend, Field (Hoolahan if Johansen not fit), Morrison, Edwards, Montero

I have doubts about starting Phillips but as we are behind, I think it is best to get an hour  or whatever he can manage out of him. I like Holgate as part of the back 3 as it gives us the ability to switch to a back 4 and with the team above that could be to go 4231 or 433. As much as I have been desperately disappointed with Murphy, he still has more quality than the other options so would give him the nod.

Word on Bartley, I thought defensively he did well on Saturday but that's what he is about, defending deep and getting rid. We will need to be more proactive and at play higher up tonight - on those occasions he looks all at sea so wouldn't have him involved. Adarabioyo would get the nod on the bench as he could play right back if needed.

I'd be very disappointed if Murphy starts let alone features.

I think you will be disappointed Fritzl…. Mind you so will I if Murphy and Harper both play (desire?????)

Phillips needs to start, if you bring him on with 30 mins left he may not make it through if there is any extra time.
