Well Mystic Mug is all in a tizz, he keeps backing Villa and they keep letting him down, so he says sod it, this weekend, a Baggies win. 2-1
Lawro - he of the BBC - says 1-1 telling BBC Sport...
"These two teams are in completely different form. West Brom have been through a little bit of a dip but then they had a great win at Everton at the end of November and they rolled over Newcastle last week too - they have started to score goals, which is good. A lot has changed in the Premier League since Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier was last a manager here and I think he is finding that out. Yes, he has had all sorts of injuries, and yes, he is blooding the kids but it is imperative that he gets results and he is not doing that at the moment. They need to dig in for something here."
What are your predictions for what has surely become - for our manager especially - a must win game?
Lawro is winning 8-4 at the moment although Mystic has 2 correct scores to Lawro`s 1....
