Only real question for me is does Coufal come back in or does Johnson keep his place?

Johnson deserves his place however if he did get dropped then he can play in the Europa League game mid week

One I feel for is Frederick's .. contracts ending needs to show his worth does a great run to assist against United .. injured since .. Johnson now has to be ahead of him

The creed of MASSIVE dictates that we shelf this win tonight and focus on a side in our club size mini league. This is a side we need to be beating, especially given our current form. Potential banana peel. Let's keep this going.

Always had an intense dislike of Villa, and especially in the last few years when the Brummie Tom Daley was there, but I still want us to wallop’ em.

The way things are going, we'll be five up at half time, get pegged back, then Areola will come on as makeshift striker (at Sturt Pearce's request) and he'll accidentally slam one in off his backside injury time!

At a guess Coufal will start which is why Johnson played 90 against city.

Johnson has well and truly put the pressure on Coufal to perform though

Id play Coufal. Then against Genk, play Johnson Lb to give Creswell a break.

I cant help it. I keep thinking Grealish still plays for them. He just doesn't right in a Man City shirt

We've only scored 6 goals in our last 6 league games. Far more likely to be all tied up 0-0 into the second half before one of the sides makes the decisive action.

Moyes may argue the fact Coufal has only just come back. So isn’t quite fit enough to start the game anyway.

But if it was down to me even if Coufal was fit I’d still go for Johnson ahead of Coufal. Purely because after our shambolic defending from the start of the season we are finally starting to look solid and pick up clean sheets. And I am a firm believer in not fixing something that isn’t broke. I am not putting our bad defending down to Coufal. As even though his performances wasn’t his best, he equally wasn’t to blame for any of the goals conceded. I just don’t want to disrupt the defence just yet. Coufal’s time will come again. :newthumb:

Ye I think Johnson keeps his place for now, we’ve won every game he’s played this season without conceding a single goal. It’s quite an incredible record.

I’d start Coufal against Genk on Thursday to help get him back to match fitness.

Agreed. I think the Genk game would be the perfect game to give Coufal his first start since coming back. The fact it’s an away match too in front of what will probably an intimidating atmosphere, you need strong characters for those type of games. And you can’t get any mentally as strong as Vlad! :newthumb:

I haven’t got a clue about them since Grealish left.
