Mystic Mug v Lawro Predictions v WBA (Villa Park)

Lawro has told BBC Sport that Villa will win 2-1 against the Baggies on Sunday (4pm kick off)

The match of the day pundit says " This is not THE derby for Aston Villa because that is against Birmingham, but they will still see the Baggies as a scalp and the home crowd will definitely be fired up, even if the game might not turn out to be a classic."

Must admit, this was THE derby once and I prefer it, if we never played the Blues again it would be too soon!

"Villa did well in their win over Swansea and played okay for the first half against Southampton, then seemed to capitulate which I think happens with younger players."

He also points out that none of the players have any fear for it being a derby as they`ve not played in this game before and the preparation wining over Manchester City in the League Cup will have done their confidence no end of good.

On the plus side for Paul Lambert's side, his players won't have any fear in this game because most of them won't have played in a derby of this size before.

Mystic Mug is in a right strop. First time he`s been positive all season v Saints and we get a hiding!

He also points out the latest results are very mixed message wise as our new players settle in. The worry is how they did capitulate v the Saints having played well for large parts of the game, however the win v Man City has just about restored his faith in what most of us know will be a rollercoaster season.

Muggy says home win, 2-0 but says if they blow this one, he`ll stop polishing his balls and give up (until the next time obviously)

Oh and he`s asked me not to mention that he is 2-1 down to Lawro in correct predictions right now so I won`t!

I'm going for a cautious 1-0 win for us!! don't forget the baggies beat everton and Liverpoo, and beat them well. I just pray that the ManC team turn up!!!
Metalvillan
Tight game 1-1
maigrait
If we bring our A game to the table and keep it going for the whole match, then I see a 2-1 win. If we don't,.... well don't ask.....

Villa Park is turning into an intimidating venue again. The Bagheads have not been brilliant away from home, and got lucky at Spurs to snatch a point, having been awful at Fulham. Villa have only been really poor for two halves of matches so far, home to Everton and away at Southampton, and if they get a good start and can keep 11 men on the pitch this time, will avenge last seasons loss and WIN on Sunday, 1-0 or 2-1

Think we'll have a stormer ...... to quote Drogba, VP is a fearful to go place when it's rocking to the rafters ..... if the fans get behind us, West Brom will be tough cookies but I think they will succumb to the atmosphere, plus they know little of our new players..... 3-1 Villa, Benteke will come into his own I think.

2 - 0 Man City mode 0 - 2 Southampton mode , so it'll probably be 2-2 & hopefully a good game .
AstonBilla

clivethevillan
4-2. Just don't know which way it will go...
onlyteaminthemids
The first 30mins, West Brom start on fire, they fail to brake us down and get court out on the counter attack. Villa lead 1v0 at half time, West Brom get the Jelly legs and crumble. There performance v a very weak Liverpool team. They had Jelly legs with something on there mind, I was shocked how poor they was. They certainly had something on there mind. If we get a early goal. 5v1 Villa. Or 3v1. That all depends if we turn up. There fans are talking the big talk. I hope there team can back there mouths up.

2-1 Villa sounds life a fair bet.
revival4us
nil nil or one one. It'll be mightily tight me thinks.
Minicooper
3-1 Villa
AdzVilla11
