Villa – Brentford: Do we expect three points? POLL

Well the good news is that the proper footy is back.
There’s more good news, in that Hutton and Samba are both fit and available for selection.
Hmm.

But the really good news is that Jonathan Kodjia is really close and will feature for the U-23’s on Monday, according to the OS.
While I’m not going to get carried away and expect him to hit the ground running, scoring a boatload of goals that propel us to the top of the table in short time, this is a massive psychological boost to us Villa fans.
His return will also provide Steve Bruce with a very pleasant dilemma where he has to decide if he’ll throw Kodjia straight back in.
I know it seems a no-brainer, but what about Hogan, who looks close to coming good and Davies, who has looked excellent? Don’t they deserve a bit of a run?
Decisions, decisions, eh? and who’d be a manager?

Onto the actual game then and Brentford have had as poor a start as us.
Talking of poor starts, Bruce has said we’ve had an “average” one.
I’d suggest he looks at the table where the average should be 7 points and not the 5 we currently have.

Whatever, there’s no doubting Brentford have had a poor start.
They’ve gained two draws in their first five games, meaning they’re second bottom in the table.
Hence, unless we revert to the “expect Villa to end the opposition’s poor run” syndrome, we should expect to come away with all three points, shouldn’t we?

I’d originally expected this game to be probably the last one in what I thought was a tough start, but now expect it to be very winnable.
Which should hopefully prove a nice continuation from the week before the international break and better still, a good start to what will hopefully prove a very fruitful September, where we climb the table.

I’ll go for a 2-1 win.

But I’m very interested in what you think, so I’ll add a poll.

    There was one top manager out there today, step forward Dean Smith, he’ll get Brentford much further up the table. Then again I am biased with him being an ex Hereford player!

      We should of got Rowett last year. Bruce should surely do the decent thing and go

        There were a lot of missed opportunities oohah, David Wagner being the most blaring one. The board didnt even approach him because Wyness was fixated on Bruce’s “championship experience”. As much as I want Bruce out, Wyness needs to go with him. All this BS about a new 60k stadium is nonsense, if we can’t even barely muster a shot at home to Brentford.

          Agree Villain1. Even Rowett would of been a decent choice. Bruce is well past his sell by date not because of his age but his thinking

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
