Well, Mystic Mug knows not where to turn with Villa. How can you predict the undpredictable?!?!
Lawro (still winning 2-1) and Mystic both said a Villa win v the Baggies. We got a draw.
This time around the BBC pundit Lawro says on BBC Sport that Spurs will beat Villa 2-0.
He reasons: "Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas can do no wrong at the moment but we have to temper the hype around him a little bit because Spurs got their backsides smacked in the last half-hour of their win at Old Trafford last weekend."
And on us, "Aston Villa are having a bit of a quiet revolution under Paul Lambert and it is interesting to watch. Lambert has not made a big deal out of his team selections, he has just said to the team 'play well and I am not bothered how old you are or how much Villa paid for you'." Adding, "Villa are heading in the right direction but I cannot see them getting anything at White Hart Lane. Gareth Bale is in the sort of form where he can be unplayable and, even if some of their players are tired from their trip to Greece, Villas-Boas can change the direction of the game with the strength he has on his bench."
Muggy is trying to vote with his head not his heart this year and is looking at the results of both teams:
Latest Results for Villa:
Aston Villa 1 - 1 WBA
Southampton 4 - 1 Aston Villa
Aston Villa 2 - 0 Swansea
Newcastle 1 - 1 Aston Villa
Aston Villa 1 - 3 Everton
West Ham 1 - 0 Aston Villa
And for Spurs:
Man Utd 2 - 3 Spurs
Spurs 2 - 1 Q.P.R.
Reading 1 - 3 Spurs
Spurs 1 - 1 Norwich
Spurs 1 - 1 WBA
Newcastle 2 - 1 Spurs
Muggy is going to try to put faith in the Lambert revolution and the fact the team don`t give other teams a second to rest and says 1-1.
What say you folks? Leave your predictions in the article comments below.
