      I'm worried of a pasting, this being an away game as well adds to the difficulty.

      That's my worry too a Pasting will be a shame on the young players.  Hopefully it will be a good game and massive learning experience for the youngsters!   

      Should we consider playing a 5 at the back 3 CB?  I think we should consider it at least.

      Best way to go IMO is to carry on with what they know, which I'm guessing would be a 4-3-3.

      I am really looking forward to this massive challenge just worried if it becomes too much of a 'men against boys'.

      Be a minor miracle if the lads go through tonight.
      Last minute equaliser at home in last round, and we had some more experienced players playing that evening.
      I'm all for playing weakened teams in the League Cup, but this is taking it to a new level :)
      Hope the lads come off the pitch feeling they've put in a good shift regardless of the result.

      Surely they will rotate considering their league position and the fact their second string side should beat us quite comfortably anyway.

      They are in a relegation battle heading into a busy Christmas schedule so i'd be very surprised if they don't mix things up a bit and use some squad players with the likes of Grealish and McGinn on the bench should they be needed.

      Do we know if Jones, Brewster and Elliot are going to be available to play tonight? I'd feel a lot better if those three all start the game.

      I think Elliott is available. Brewster might miss out with an injury and Jones is out in Qatar I believe.

      Yeah I’ve just seen that Brewster is a doubt, real shame if he doesn’t make the game. Just watching neal  Critchley press conference now.

      I don't think these lads will get a hiding in someway it will be hard for Villa because they are now massive favourites and we all know how much underdogs often find a way to win. This is a massive opportunity for the lads I am looking forward to it. They have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

      They have to rotate, they have Injury Issues like all teams, and as noted above the EPL is priority they're in fight to stay up.

      Is a bit of a calculated risk about this. Obviously over the years we have used this cup to play younger players but there has always been the fringe players and one or two first team regulars in the side.This time it's not far off an A team. All academy youngsters.

      They will have incredible enthusiasm, plenty of endeavour, but that could dissipate very quickly. The risk is we could be humiliated badly and it could set back one or two players. The upside is one or two will shine.

      Can't quite work out if I'm looking forward to it or dreading it.

      Not got an option really, seeing as the whole club has geared themselves up to have a go at the World Club Cup thingy.

      Besides if the kids do get a pasting we can hammer them back with the men when they come to Anfield.

      How we feel about this now is how most teams feel when they come up against our first XI!

      I will take any result here that keeps these lads away from long term damage.

      Just popped on the Villa forum to get a flavour of what we will ce up against. They are all calling for McGinn and Grealish to sit this one out and think they have more than enough despite accepting their team isnt great.

      Some of them are shitting it that they will come a cropper in what they say would be the worst defeat in their history :lmao:

      Anyone know if audio commentary for this is available on the official site.

      Thinking maybe all the comms and equipment are in Qatar already.
