Lawro On Fence Again - Mystic Happy Again

Lawro has told BBC Sport that he expects a hard fought 1-1 draw this weekend in the Norwich v Aston Villa match.

Despite us winning 6-1 v Sunderland, Lawro says "I was extremely impressed by Aston Villa in their 6-1 win over Sunderland on Monday. Not just because they got such a resounding result in a game they needed to win, but the way they performed. They were flying into tackles and really stopped Sunderland from playing. Christian Benteke, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Andreas Weimann were outstanding as Villa's front three and have been the most instrumental players in keeping them up. It's been a struggle but I think it will have a happy ending for them."

Adding that he believes that Norwich will also be safe.

"Former Canaries boss Paul Lambert's return to Carrow Road will add another edge to this game but I think the points will end up being shared."

Mystic Mug refused to sit on the fence with the Sunderland game (Lawro had said a draw) but was in a deep depression and predicted we`d lose. This time around he again refuses to sit on the fence and actually smells blood. Lawro and Mystic are locked at 11-11 and Mystic says this will be a very hard fought win for Villa. He`ll go with 1-0. He says woe betide Villa if they ruin his chance of going ahead v the BBC pundit!

What say you folks? Predictions please.

My one plea is to for Villa to take confidence, not over confidences to Carrow Road. The job IS NOT done yet. If we beat Norwich, it will be...surely!?

I'm going for a 2-1 win for the villa. Benteke to grab both and a late goal by Norwich. All goals in the second half.

well i think we're all wise enough to know by now that if we are to win it will not be 1-0 because we can't keep a clean sheet for toffee!! haha. think we'll score 3 tho tbh got a really good feeling about this game and Norwich have been poor lately, (2 wins in 18!!) whereas we have 4 in 7 i believe?? COME ON UTV

I think it'll be a tight, hard fought game with few goals in it. Neither team will want to lose and a point should be enough to keep Norwich up. 1-1 I think.

As long as the lads don't go in complacent then I really fancy us to win. Norwich have trouble scoring goals especially from open play and I can't see them keeping us out if our front 3 carry on from their performance on Monday. 3-1 to the claret and blue.

OMG! Mystic saying we'll keep a clean sheet!? I can't see that for one moment. Actually, I am with Lawro on this one, 1-1.

I doubt Lambert will allow over confidence, but the lads must be getting some self belief and that makes a world of difference, they know how good they can be, I predict another cricket score.
