Oh no, Mark Lawrenson, what have you done? After weeks of backing us to win (quite correctly along with Mystic Mug last week in the 2-0 v Derby) he has come out with a 1-1 v Blues on Sunday.
He told the BBC site: 'Another derby in a weekend of big games in the Premier League. Birmingham are back in the top flight and there will be some added intrigue, with Liam Ridgewell moving from Villa Park to St Andrews in the summer. I sometimes feel with these games the occasion takes over and football gets pushed out. I will go for a draw in a tense, nervy affair.'
Actually, difficult to argue with the sentiment, the feeling and passion is often not reflected in the game. Still, Mystic Mug
has polished his ball well and good and is going for a 1-0 Villa scoreline.
Vital Villa, in a poll suggested by Villabikes29, asked After Cahill's exploits 2 years ago, who will be our unlikely hero this Sunday?
Up step Bulgarian international Stiliyan Petrov according to 45%. Go on Stan, be a Villa hero and set yourself on the road to a more impressive contribution for the claret and blue's!
Next up was Ridgwell who polled 14% with a predicted own goal. A man who most likely won't even be on the bench, Mustapha Salifou, polled 13%. Blimey, what a baptism of fire he'd have if picked!
Olof Mellberg (8%)
Marlon Harewood (7%)
Wilfred Bouma (5%)
Scott Carson (4%)
Curtis Davies (2%)
Isaiah Osbourne (1%)
Stuart Taylor (1%)
Our latest poll asks for your predictions on the game, will Villa win or win?
