Blimey, Lawro is very talkative about Man Utd v Villa! You can see the full quotes: www.bbc.co.uk/sport
The BBC pundit, who was wrong at the weekend with Mystic Mug guessing the right score and result ... is saying 3-0 to Man Utd this time around.
He admits Man Utd were poor v Wigan but... well, it is Villa they are facing now! :o"
'...... you very rarely see two successive under-par performances from them, let alone back-to-back losses. And, having seen quite a bit of Aston Villa recently, I just cannot see them posing Manchester United any problems."
He adds again on Villa, having said (rightly I think most agree) a few times: "Villa's tactics have generally been negative all season. Manager Alex McLeish always seems to play one too many defensive-minded players. They have got loads of young players coming through, which is fantastic for them, but that does not mean anyone would realistically tip them to get even a point here."
He does say that although in another relegation battle for McLeish, Villa should just about be ok.
"They play Sunderland and Bolton at home in their next two games and they have to be looking for four points from those fixtures, which would be enough to keep them up."
Aye, get this game out of the way, those two are the crunch games for Villa. Gulp.
You can also see his thoughts on the summer here: www.bbc.co.uk/sport He says it will be up to what Randy thinks of the job McLeish as done and argues we are still an attractive club to come to (manager wise).
Mystic Mug has very little to say apart from 2-0 if Man Utd want a canter, more if they are up for it.
What say you folks? Win/lose/draw poll is live (right hand bottom of this page)
Can anyone see a Villa win?
