Ive noticed nobody had put Veretout in the starting 11, what are peoples thoughts on him at the minute ?

I think he looked decent in pre-season but he looked slow in the league to me. He needs to be quicker and more composed on the ball.

As Stu said he needs to get a little sharper and get used to the quick tempo

they reckon now that sherwood might play 3 centre backs ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,richards ,,lescott and c c ciaran clarke

with amavi and bacuna not so good at defending ,,, but good at going forward as wing backs

this formation or system could really suit us

I hope not, I really hate 3 CB's. It always seems to be an accident waiting to happen with everybody waiting for someone else to be covering.

Some part of me is wondering was Sherwood playing Sanchez at the back to get him more used to defending so that when the full backs push up he falls back into a pseudo CB role to make up the numbers? A number of teams have played that way over the years and it might work. There was also talk of Illori playing in midfield and he should be able to play that role too.

Would become more of a 3-4-3 when attacking.

I like 5 at the back, it sounds really defensive but with bacuna and amarvi bombing it down the wings it can be quite an attacking formation, and leaving 3 CB at the back is good insurance

if we did do that, I'm not sure we would need Sanchez in the starting line up, opting for playmakers instead, something like this..

Guzan

Richards Lescott Clark

Bacuna Amarvi

Westwood Veretout

Traore/Grealish Sinclair

Gestede

With this sort of set up i think Gestede would be suited better up front with both Amarvi and Bacuna being more attacking, whipping balls into the box.

Problem I have with Gestede is he needs to use his head. I've seen him on a few occasions now believe that he can just stand by who he wants and win the ball. He was in Smalling and Dann's pocket in recent games. He MUST learn to pull onto the weaker, smaller defender if he wants to succeed at this level.

Benteke was the same yesterday. In Smallings pocket all day. The one time he gets away from him he scores.

If the big defender pulls out of position with Gestede, that's great - it opens up space. It's something so simple yet so effective.

Just back from two weeks in Gran Canaria roasted but rested and looking forward to watching the game today.

Missed deadline day but we seem to have purchased Lescott but not the extra forward we needed so it might very well be a struggle against a vastly improving Leicester team.

Looks like Sinclair lol play up top.

This 5-3-2 could see both Sinclair and Gestede up top then.

I agree that Gestede was pretty much useless in the United game, but realistically it's between him and Gabby, I would like to see Gestede start, see how he does and if it isn't working make an early ish second half sub for Kozak (that won't happen though) lol

He asked me to suspend his account for a month so I did it for 28 days so he wouldn't be able to. Did say he would drop me an email if he wanted to come back before.

Villa are 4-1 today to win and 7-1 to win with both teams to score. Are we that bad?

If you listen to the punditsvIt's just that Leicester have made a great start and we have made a steady start.

Beat them today and we will be only 1 point behind them - not so great then are they.

We was worse a few years ago when we went to Liverpool and won 3-1. We was only 3-1 that day.
