Mystic Mug v Lawro - Villa v Swansea

Mystic Mug v Lawro - Villa v Swansea

Mystic Mug is confused! He doesn`t know half the team now and can`t make head nor tail of our form after a much improved display against Newcastle. However, as he`s promised to take off his claret and blue tinted specs and try to be realistic, with so much uncertainty and the awful home display against Everton, he`s going for a shocking 2-1 loss prediction.

The best sportsbook reviews should land you some decent odds for the match.

Lawro has told BBC Sport he is expecting a 1-1 draw.

He says if Bent can get the service, Villa will be fine. Question is, can he get the service?

On Lambert he adds, 'He knew the size of the job facing him at Villa and it's not too bad a thing that he has had a tough start because he can say to the punters 'this is where we are at and have to build from here'. He is the right manager for the job.'

Adding on the inexperienced squad: "They have got a lot of bright young players but it is a tough baptism for them, especially if you have a bad start and you can't get out of that bottom six."

The first three games for both teams:

Swansea 2 - 2 Sunderland
Swansea 3 - 0 West Ham
Q.P.R. 0 - 5 Swansea

Newcastle 1 - 1 Aston Villa
Aston Villa 1 - 3 Everton
West Ham 1 - 0 Aston Villa

Win 3-0 or 3-1, Swansea have had a good start just like Baggies but so did Blackpool many moons ago now and so on, its not about where you start its where you finish, Lambert has added enthuisiasm back into this club by bringin in younger players, Ireland Bent responed against Newcastle by actually playing wel as theyknow they can now be dropped and replaced by hungrier players ;) UTV!

The only thing that is assured is The Swans will pass the ball and score goals, If Villa are going to win this game they will have to score 3 goals because they will score at least 2 against us. This season they have scored 10 and we have scored 2 so it will need a momuments effort to keep them out. Swansea are no longer a soft touch away from home.

It is early season, with a lot of new players, but football is football. Our Manager knows this. He knows you can't play football with a football whichever season. The players know this too. 2-1 to our football players.

I'd like to make a complaint. Why hasn't my "football", "manager", "season" and "players" turned red and been double underlined???

I think this is a game we need to win, we have more or less a full squad to choose from, I think we will win 2-1. COTVABU

Would have gone for the win against a lot of teams but feel Swansea are one of the inform sides at the moment so 1-1
14/09/2012 10:20:00
they've lost a few first choice defenders - villa 2-1.
14/09/2012 10:51:00
4-4. Another dull game at VP.

Really fancy us to win. They are missing 4 defenders and if we can start brightly like we did at Newcastle, nick an early goal, raise the roof and get the crowd bouncing the players confidence will go sky high. 3-1 to the Villa.
