LIVE THREAD: Newcastle United v. Aston Villa

Jamie McDonald

Newcastle United host Aston Villa in the most thrilling match involving either side that will be contested today.

In the most eagerly anticipated match since Newcastle lost 4-0 to Spurs (or 3-0 any of the times before that), Alan Pardew's offensive juggernaut (read that how you will) will take the pitch at St. James' Park to face 13th place Aston Villa.  Whatever you think about Newcastle or Villa, it's probably fair to say that this match shouldn't strike sheer terror in the Toon Army... but that's exactly what it does.  Newcastle see the return of captain Fabricio Coloccini and primary only goal threat Loic Remy while Aston Villa will run out a front line of Andreas Weimann, Christian Benteke and Gabriel Agbonlahor.  Things will happen, for sure.  Here's your place to talk it out.

Newcastle United (4-4-2): Krul; Debuchy, Williamson, Coloccini (c), Dummett; Sissoko, Tiote, Anita, Gouffran; Remy, Cisse.

Subs: Elliott, Haidara, Yanga-Mbiwa, S.Taylor, Gosling, Shola Ameobi, de Jong

Aston Villa (4-3-3): Guzan Bacuna Vlaar (c) Baker Bertrand Westwood Delph El Ahmadi Weimann Benteke Agbonlahor

Subs: Steer Sylla Holt Clark Albrighton Tonev Bennett

I'll be drinking... how about you?
