Mystic The Humbug - Villa v Crystal Palace

Lawro is firmly on the fence this weekend after telling he thinks Villa v Crystal Palace will be a 1-1 draw.

The formerly moustached one states the bleeding obvious saying "Aston Villa are not on a good run at the moment, having lost their last three games, and that shows how quickly things change in the Premier League because before then, they went five games unbeaten. Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert will not let any criticism from fans get to him but his side's home form is amongst the worst in the division and that will be a big concern to him."

Adding "But they do operate better when they are on the road and they can play on the break, which is why I have gone for a draw here."

Mystic Mug says you don`t know what you are going to get with Villa these days, but you do know that a Pulis team will fight. He`s far from convinced our lads are up for the fight having backed them (and by backing them, he`s being thrashed 6-3 at the moment by Lawro in right predictions) so is going to be a total humbug and say an away win. 1-0 to Palace.

This should, of course, guarantee a Villa home win... would be nice. 15 wins in 55 so far under Paul Lambert, that needs to improve.

Thoughts and predictions folks?

Oh and a great exchange on Facebook. I said I was looking forward to the game and someone answered: "'I'm looking forward to it, in the same way I look forward to going to Amsterdam. Great fun at first but I`m worried about what we're gonna come away with'

Mystic fears same score as I do, a triple washout this Xmas outdo even last year's disaster. On the other hand, triple success, now that would be dreaming - but we live in hope. True to form, as of this season, we would draw with Palace, be out-possessed and outplayed and beaten by Swansea, and then in desperation get a win at Sunderland. Please surprise me - a nice, nice, nice Xmas haul of nine points.
Villa win and a climb of three places up the table! But when I sober up from drinking in the hot Australian sun,, it's finest bunderberg rum,it's got more chance of being a bore Draw! Merry Christmas all!

Libor O'Kozak to score, with an assist from O'Albrighton.
Just picked up the winning 15 from 55 for most clubs this spells the sack
Need 3 points today but just can't see where the creativity is going to come from (don't mean to be negative) but we have such a poor home record any other manger would have been relieved of his dutys a year ago!
Stop whinging10
0-0 or 1-1 depending if we manage to score. I can't contemplate defeat, but probably won't win either...

OK, forget anything Ive said in the past about nobody being able to do better than Lambert with the lack of support he gets from Lerner. Lambert OUT, now, FFS!!!!!!!!! Im off work until 6 Jan, if they need somebody to come in immediately.
We lose 1 nil!!!!!!
God we are *****!..
Lambert has to go now! Patience done! Get him out before we have to go again!
Be nice to hear from General whatshisname about what Randolf is going to do now. Two chances!
