'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mark Lawrenson A Villa Fan?!?

There seems to be a new world order since Martin O'Neill appeared at Villa. All of a sudden Mark Lawrenson is a Villa fan, blimey, he even predicted we'd beat Manchester United last weekend (we lost 4-1 in case you've erased it from your memory!)

And would you believe it, he's at it again for our game against Bolton!

He told the BBC site:

'Aston Villa will be smarting from their 4-1 defeat at Manchester United last week and will be right up for this game. Bolton really need to get back to aggressive, in-your-face, no-nonsense football at the Reebok but that will take time to bed in under new manager Gary Megson and this game comes a bit too soon. '

And predicts Bolton 1-2 Villa

That'll do nicely as we set off on a four game unbeaten run, or at least we should be with Bolton (away), Derby (home), Blues (away) and Boro (away) coming up. All banana skins but all games we can and should win, especially as we have European pretensions. Anything less than 9 out of 12 points would surely be a poor return?

Come on you Villa boys!

Oh, Mystic Mug says 2-0 to the Villa by the way and asked for no congratulations on predicting correctly last weekend!

The curse seems to remain that when he predicts a win, we generally don't. Although he's been spot on a few times this season.

Hes definitely not a Blackburn fan i'll tell you that for free!!!

Its funny though, you read all fans on all the sites and they all think Lawro hates them!!!!!!!!!!
The Fear
This run of games could make our season with them being so easy and winnable, hopefully 12 points and then win our game in hand at blackburn should set us up nicely for christmas.

There was time when he wouldn't give us the time of day, now he's proved to the world that he's nothing but a closet Villan.
