Shortest Villa Match Preview Ever

I've put as much effort into this match preview as the chairman, manager and team have put into this season. So here goes:

We play Manchester City and the kick off time is 7.45pm

I can't remember the last time I've felt so flat and ambivalent about a game, it has even occurred to me to stay home but now I've promised to take my dad as a punishment for how he used to tell me off when I was young, I guess I'll have to go! On the plus side I believe Mellberg. Vassell has 7 Prem goals, 1 fa and league cup. He has started 32 games. So he is still not doing what he should. Therefore he'll grab a brace tonight and end the current bad run Man City are on. (they have lost their last six games and the mancs are moaning like mad!)

I know exactly how you feel. Never felt so flat as I have this season. Shame the club don't put as much effort as the fans who spend there hard earned cash on watching them week in and week out.

I think we'll be lucky to pull in 26,000 tonight, and probably even luckier to take all three points. By the law of averages though, surely its about time we turned this over-rated lot over? 2-1 to us, but thats the heart and not the head talking.

I have lived down in East Kent for nearly twenty years now. I get depressed because I can't get to the games, I went to the baggies game recently and the thing I noticed was how down people were (I loved it of course). I think the bottom line is that we don't see the team put up a performance like the Blues one every week, OK it wasn't pretty, but at least there was fight. Wigan (lasy night), Bolton and many other teams do it, why can't we? You will be damn sure that Pearce will have his boys up for this one, will DOL?
