Aston Villa v Manchester City: Control yourself, team updates and odds

It's not the end of the world but I can tell you now, at about 5pm my phone, tablet and laptop are getting closed down and I'm not opening up again until tomorrow. It's not that I think it's going to get silly, but it's going to get silly.

And this is how it's going to go; we get spanked, anger and frustration and then they'll be some that come our and say 'it's Manchester City, best squad in the League, what did you expect' and then by morning, it will have all passed and we'll be back to normal.

Or, long shot here and we win and then it goes silly for other reasons all together. Either way it's not going to be nice later and it will probably be best to not spend any time reading or interacting sorry.

Updates, team news and banter

But until then, we're going to have fun. I mean, if you can't stare adversity in the face and smile and have a laugh, what else have you got?

So, with the team news coming in just under three hours and predictions of heavy defeats circling like opportunity, you have a responsibility to post something interesting below.

And if you're feeling lucky, you'll get 11/2 on us to win today right here. And yes, you read that right, the home team at 11/2. Me, I'm not betting on Aston Villa but that is a good price for those that do like to have a bet on Aston Villa.

I'm going to have a late breakfast and on my return, more of this.
