Oh good grief. I hope this isn't the kiss of death. In fact, it could be a double kiss of death.
Mark Lawrenson has tipped Villa to beat Everton on Monday night.
The BBC pundit said: 'Villa have been playing quite well without having picked up the points they have perhaps deserved. Couple that with the fact that Everton's record at Villa Park hasn't been too hot of late and I've got this down as a home win.' Prediction: 2-0
Mystic Mug is also backing the Villa boys with a 2-0, both from John Carew! With just 2 wins in 19 games, Villa need the points on the board to stop us looking over our shoulders!
I think I might back myself to have a chicken pie, once baltied, never repeated as they don't say.
Gareth Barry, Villa captain and all round good egg, is also looking for Villa to get back to winning ways.
'There are still seven or eight games left and a lot still can happen. We want to at least finish on a high, get the fans in for the last four home games and show them what's going to come next season. But we still have to look over our shoulder. It's always nice to get past the points total where you feel you are safe for another season. Although we are clear at the moment, you need to get to the points total - and then stop worrying.'
Adding on the official site:
'The killer instinct has been missing. If you look at the way we've played and the results we've picked up, they've not matched up the way they should have. We've not getting the points because we have not been scoring enough goals. Simple as that. We are in the results business and we need to get back to winning. It is all about results and scoring goals. The goals-for tally is probably not quite high enough. Maybe we are not being quite clinical enough. The chances have definitely been there. It's all right having pressure but we haven't been finishing things off.'
Maybe I should stay away again, we beat Everton 4-0 last year at Villa Park and I missed the game with illness!
