Lawro Predicts Villa Win

Lawro Predicts Villa Win

Mark Lawrenson, who was sadly spot on last week predicting a 1-1 with Middlesbrough has backed Villa to win this weekend...gulp.

The de-moustached one (no, I've no idea what I'm on about either really) has predicted a 2-0 home win against Newcastle United and thus says the Magpies will be playing Championship football next season.

The bbc pundit said:

'I know Newcastle are reliant on other results anyway but I just don't see them getting anything at Villa and staying up. Sorry Alan! Being relegated would not be the end of the world because it would give them a chance to reorganise things at the club, and let's face it that needs to happen. You can't go through so many managers in a season because the players don't know what is going on and I just think their buying policy has not been good enough. Relegation will give them a chance to clear the dead wood at the club.

Villa have had a stuttering three months, but overall it's been a good season for Martin O'Neill and they can still finish in fifth place and catch Everton.'

Note this comment from Lawro about Newcastle: "I just think their buying policy has not been good enough". If those who think MONs buying policy is crap, just have a think about where a real crap policy takes you in a very short time. I seem to remember a couple of long summers where people have been crying out for MON to sign 'names', some of whom went on to sign for the 'big spenders' out there. Perhaps the man isn't so dumb after all ...

Lets hope so BobTheBuilder, it is true you can't just throw money at it but sometimes a bit of top quality doesn't go amiss either.

One of he most inspired signings from MoN was JC, and that trade seemed to be more accidental than anything else. Overall though MoN has got it about right with his rebuilding. Let's hope for a great final day. Oh, and congratulations to the lads with their Prem Reserves Championship. Time for a drink methinks.

Yes, a final day victory will send us off for our summer holidays in more cheerful mood than we have been of late. Wish I was as confident about victory on Sunday afternoon though as is our good friend, and closet Villan, Mark Lawrenson. The defeat we suffered up at St James Park was one of our most inept performances of the season, so it would certainly be nice to set the record straight on home soil.
