AVB has taken his pre match press conference this afternoon ahead of the Wolves game and has revealed that Ashley Cole is fit to play, has revealed there will not be dramatic changes to the squad and has spoken of team meetings ahead of the game. He said:
'There will be no radical changes in terms of the 19 players in the squad, There shouldn't be any dramatic changes.

Our recent form at home hasn't been spectacular. The last two games were games we played to win but we couldn't win and now we have to make sure to use the emotional advantage of being at home.

When you are hyped up emotionally and have more confidence then things go better for you. A negative streak of results can be explained by emotional states and it could be just that, and we need to find the right emotional stimulus.

The meetings had good focus and understanding about what we want to achieve. They were not critical, no animosity, no insults, no doubts about what we are doing. Self -confidence and self-belief now is what we need and everybody wants to get it. It only comes with wins.

Meetings won't be the decisive key. The key is to transfer what we do in training onto the pitch.

Our philosophy will be the last thing to die in this club. It is a thing that makes the technical staff and players very proud and what we have shown up to here, even in the moments of defeat, is something we have to stick with for the remainder of the season. We have to get the results right of course. Our belief is in our work and we have to continue it."
It's good to know that the collective have had meetings to discuss things and to sort out problems we have had recently. It's about getting everyone together, singing from the same hymn sheet that counts and as long as we can have the players like that, we will sort it out.

I respect AVB for sticking to his guns with his footballing philosophy. Having studied the game for 17 years he is never going to change things after a couple of months here. Maybe alter it slightly to defend better.

I am worried about the fact he says that there shouldn't be any dramatic changes. I am hoping he is talking about the squad as a whole and not the actual team. Like I have stated earlier, I hope that there are some changes for tomorrow to our formation first of all and the players.

What are your thought's on AVB comments?
