Fair enough. Does anyone know if they will be opening the ground early? It's usually 75 mins before kick off but if they are urging everybody to get there early it is to be hoped that the gates will be opened early too.

I have just heard from another poster on 100% villa that they are opening the ground at 10 am.

They are aiming to open the gates 1 1/2 hour before kick off. So around 10:30

Whatever time you get there gents, enjoy the game, and lets hope we can cheer the lads on to three very valuable points.

Has three ever been a more important local derby in recent years given the context of this game? With Everton losing in midweek, and ManCity and Portsmouth playing each other there is a real chance for us to gain ground on that 5th spot, or as a minimum to consolidate ourselves in the InterToto placing. Couple that with the possibility of us pushing small heath one step closer to relegation. It's a HUGE, HUGE game. They'll be up for is as they always are, but jeeeeeez - if MON can't get our lot up for it with all of that at stake, then god help us. I reckon it'll be tight, as they've had a few half decent results recently but, switching into Nostradamus mode for a second, I fancy us for a 2-1 victory, with Carew and Hokey Cokey as our scorers, and one for Forssell.
