Aston Villa vs Blackburn Rovers Pre-Match Predictions

Filed under: Aston Villa, Pre-Match Predictions 

A third attempt at my new prediction feature, in which I have been too optimistic it seems in the. After predicting a draw with Stoke and a win against Bolton I’m still going to stick to my Villa guns and predict a win for Houllier in his first game. The team line-up represents a much tougher challenge than the Bolton game which I guessed correctly with the new manager bringing in new ideas and tactics but I’ll have a punt. Please test yourself against my predictions and I’ll give an honourable mention anyone who can get the team line up and result bang on!

Blackburn Rovers (Home) – 22nd September 2010

Possible Starting XI: (4-4-2) Friedel, L Young, Cuellar, Collins, Warnock; Albrighton, Ireland, Reo-Coker, A Young; Agbonlahor, Heskey

Key Man: Gabby Agbonlahor

Goalscorer(s): Gabby Agbonlahor, James Collins

Minute of First Goal: 37

Final Score: 2-1 (AET)

  2. Sorry my friend but you’ve not been reading in-between the lines of the feedback both from G H and K Mac. My prediction is:
    Brad – Brad senior to take a rest
    Sadly – beyer…. Yes I really dislike this player after his Rapid performance that i’m not even bothered to check his spelling of his name – For Sale in Jan Please
    Big Carlos – Dunne was played against Bolton NOT 100% fit
    Collins – even though he to needs a rest but Sadly our bright talent being offered to Fergy needs more premiership starts and drop both Collins and Dunne surely K Clark should be on in the 2nd half if we are in control
    Luke Young – No real alternative.
    Midfield : Bannan, Reo Coker, Sidwell, Ashley Young
    Talk is Ashley gets picked for England so needs to play that role to remain in the England fold – read into that what you may – round pegs for round holes ? Or keeping up his value for the next or one after transfer window – Yes I’m a Sceptic
    Ireland – clearly needs games but in the whole behind:
    So that’s a rest for Petrov (needed in my opinion) the same goes for Albrighton (again needed for the Wolves game) and Downing has a gash to the shin.

    Beyer(hope I’m wrong), Cueller, Collins, Luke Young
    Bannan. Reo Coker. Sidwell. Ashley Young

    Subs: Friedal, Clark, Warnock, Downing, Carew And I really hope Delfouneso ( not Heskey – Please

    Prediction: Villa to win (just) by One goal. 3-2
    First goal on 5 mins Gabby – to impress the new Boss
    Most influential player: Reo Coker…..
    However Brad Guzan will play a big part – good or bad who’s to say

    Thanks David.
