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.'
