    Aston Villa Football Club (nicknamed Villa, The Villa, The Villans, and The Lions) is a professional football club based in Aston, Birmingham. The club were formed in March 1874, by four members of the Villa Cross Wesleyan Chapel. The four founders were Jack Hughes, Frederick Matthews, Walter Price and William Scattergood. The first match was against the local Aston Brook St Mary's Rugby team. The club were soon playing the modern version of football though and won its first FA Cup in 1887. Aston Villa were one of the dozen teams that competed in the inaugural Football League in 1888 with one of the club's directors, William McGregor being the league's founder.

    The infant club's fortunes changed forever when a young Scotsman called George Ramsay stumbled across the Villa players' practice match in Aston Park in 1876. Word spread about how fine a player Ramsay was; he also took charge of training, later describing the newly formed club's approach to the game as 'a dash at the man and a big kick at the ball'. Ramsay was influenced by the Scottish club, Queen's Park, who pioneered what became known as 'combination football' in his native Glasgow, the intricate passing game he introduced was a revolutionary move for an English club in the late 1870s. His subsequent trophy haul of six League Championships and six FA Cups established Aston Villa as the most successful club in England. He has been described as the world's first paid football manager. To this day, Ramsay remains one of the greatest managers in the history of English football, having won the most league titles of any manager in England until he was surpassed by Sir Alex Ferguson in 1999–00 and the most FA Cup trophies until surpassed by Arsène Wenger in 2016–17

    Villa are one of only five English clubs to have won the European Cup, in 1981–82. They have also won the Football League First Division seven times, the FA Cup seven times, the League Cup five times, and the UEFA Super Cup once. At the end of the 2018–19 season, Aston Villa had also spent 105 seasons in the top tier of English football. The only club to have spent longer in the top flight are Everton, with 116 seasons, making Aston Villa versus Everton the most-played fixture in English top-flight football. Aston Villa's arch-rivals are Birmingham City, with games between the two clubs known as the Second City Derby. Historically though, West Bromwich Albion have arguably been Villa's greatest rivals. Villa also enjoy less heated local rivalries with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Coventry City. Aston Villa have been playing their home games at Villa Park since 1897.

    Just as with Ajax, this team is worse without Antony. Need him back, and badly.

    If it were up to me I'd start Martial but that's unlikely, though Ten Hag started DVB straight away after his retin from injury so who knows.

    I just want to see some of our players in attacks be able to not cheaply cede the ball. I want to see Antony, Martial among our attackers so I don't get to see us instantly losing the ball when the ball transition to our attackers.

    Hopefully Sancho is back and get himself back to some groove.

    Eriksen as a 10 in the prem? His handling speed is way too slow for that.

    Any chance of Sancho, Martial, Antony featuring in this game? I presume Rashford will be starting and Donny won't be near the starting 11.

    We’re away
    It’s Villa
    They don’t have Gerrard
    They will have non-Gerrard bounce
    The ref will be a cnut, as per recent matches
    What could go wrong

    Donny shouldn't play, Garnacho should.

    Going to be very, very tough. Wouldn't be surprised at dropped points in all honesty. But I should add it shouldn't be panic stations if we don't win.

    Fancy us to win any game at the moment, but still thinking we could drop points. Hate that new manager bounce.

    Correction, Villa has been shit. Nobody knows if or how fast Emery can make them play his type of hard break down low block ball.
    Surely that means they’re shit until proven otherwise? We had months under Ten Hag and were still 4-0 to Brentford by half time. Emery only took charge of his first training session yesterday

    Banana peel this. With Emery they will definitely play a low block and look to counter with Bailley and Watkins.

    Forwards impossible to select as injury/illness ravaged. I’d guess with Bruno also suspended,

    DDG

    Dalot
    Lindelof
    Martinez
    Shaw

    Fred
    Casemiro
    Eriksen

    Antony
    Rashford
    Elanga

    Martial still missing in action (?), Sancho out of form and can’t see Ronaldo starting again.

    0-1 United (Casemiro)

    Tricky away game which no doubt their players and fans will be up for. Don't see a win with our lack of forward options right now.

    Bring in Martial. If he's 80% he'll have ample time to recover. He's not going to the World Cup is he? We need him for the next two league matches.

    Given his injuries he needs to be eased back in. Hopefully Antony is fit and Rashford + Garnacho/Sancho can join him

    Can Garnacho play on the right? Otherwise, it is tricky to play him, Ronaldo and Rashford.

    Otherwise it will be Rashford CF, Garnacho left and someone else on the right.

    Going with the hoofball gameplan?

    I suppose given enough opportunities, Maguire could pull a Fellaini

    Is Martial back?

    Who to play instead of Bruno?

    Drop Ronald
    Probably why we saw Donny start today as he would need minutes to be match fit for Sunday. I'm sure he will start against Villa in place of Bruno or will at the very least come off the bench.

    Really need our attackers to get back to fitness and start firing. Need Ronaldo out of the team asap.
