Probably not would be my first thought. I hope I become more positive as the week goes by I'm going for a loss.

It would be great to beat them. Unfortunately, I expect a comfortable defeat. 3-0.

I think we'll win. Only because this (https://twitter.com/Villa_Zone/status/777610061887770624) will rather sensibly be plastered all over our changing room.

How are we the sad ones when they're the ones who are still bitter after all this time?

Exactly. It's quite pathetic, really.

I actually have a lot of time for Newcastle and their support but some of them don't half take themselves too seriously. It's just another game to me though beating the best side in the league might be the boost our players need.

I'm going to reserve judgement until about 7:30pm Saturday. We don't know which Villa will take to the pitch. Will it be the attacking one, or the negative one? We shall see.

We said at the start of the season that the best team in this league would be Newcastle, so it would be no surprise if they beat us. The problem is that due to poor results the fan's collective temperature is rising. I guess a draw would do, but a loss is going to go down like a lead balloon.

We should be able to lose to the 'best' team in the league without recriminations, but the manager and players have gradually squandered the good will that they started out with.

I hope we win as that would stave off further negativity, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

I had to add this article as it proves RDM to be either a master of understatement, or the world's greatest optimist!

It gave me a chuckle anyway.

"A little better".

He needs to pull something out of the bag very soon unless we want our start to go from "slow" to "very worrying".

RDM has to be bold .... it's the only way to fire up our new guys. We cannot ask them to abandon what they do best and park the bus for a clean sheet. Boldness carries risks, but we have players who need to play on the front foot.

I suppose with the players at our disposal we have to go hell for leather and try to score as many goals as possible. Our squad is so unbalanced in that regard.

Spot on Sandie. The following article makes some good points about the "seeing a game out" mentality.
