Weren't we without Cahill against Utd?

This is my point. We were without Cahill against United and Hull as well, and were comfortably the better team in both matches. So I don't think Cahill is the key factor. Goodison may just be, though.

I'd imagine that it'll be the same side except Rodwell in for Ossie if he's still injured.

I don't like the thought of Cahill and Heitinga in midfield, it's not conducive to the type of intricate play that will be needed to beat Birmingham.

We saw in the 2 home games that if we lump it long they will head it away. If we play properly, then we will beat them.

Victor will start and I imagine they will use him to wear Ridgewell down then let Donovan at him for the last 30 mins.

There really isn't any point in changing the team. I'd go exactly like we did against Hull.

I think this will be an emphatic win for us.  2-0, Saha, Heitinga.

Big game now that they won last night. Hopefully Yak has another Bendtnar, missed a few chances at the weekend, then scores a hatrick in his next game.  ;D

Donovan should start as we desperately need pace against a Brum side that just sits back.

We always struggle against sides that do that to us.

If they sit back then pace isn't the answer, because there'll be no space behind them to run into. But I don't think they'll sit back at home. We'll have to be patient.

Aye. Alternating runs from Arteta and Rodwell in midfield will help though, and we need to be intricate in and around the box.

We need to be quick as lightening and batter them with football they simply can't match.

Trying to engage them in a slug fest will only end in disappointment.

Donovan in for Anichebe and Cahill in for Osman. Otherwise same team that smashed Hull.

1-1. Jerome for them, Yakubu for us.
