The Baggies couldn't have picked a worse time to play Villa because injury crisis or not, Villa have got a new found steel and determination. Mind you, The Baggies aren't exactly short of battle. On current form there isn't a great deal between the two clubs, both have struggled this term but both have rallied recently. Should make for an interesting derby - and remember, this used to the THE local derby, before those upstarts from the Sty came along!
Sorenson says: 'Kanu is unpredictable. You might not see him for a couple of games and then he will be fantastic - you need to expect the worst.'
Doug says: 'Goodbye' ???
Neil Clement says: 'This is huge'. His wife says 'get over here then'. Oh no, sorry, there is more: 'I get fired up for derby matches...You don't want to be going back to your local area and get stick so you need to raise your game for derbies. It's going to be huge with the position both clubs are in.'
Inamoto has a chance of returning, as does Ronnie Wallwork, Gera is still out. (from): Kuszczak, Robinson, Clement, Davies, Watson, Chaplow, Albrechtsen, Carter, Wallwork, Inamoto, Horsfield, Campbell, Kanu, Hoult, Moore, Greening, Kamara, Ellington.
Can be a tricky bugger when he is on his game.
Down to the bare bones of a squad, it is easier to mention the players that are fit. Phillips, Mellberg, Bouma, Hendrie, Samuel, De La Cruz etc etc are all out. (from): Sorensen, Hughes, Delaney, Ridgewell, Barry, Davis, McCann, Bakke, Milner, Moore, Baros, Taylor, Angel, Whittingham, Jumper Jumper, Gardner.

Mystic Mug got it right v Arsenal and is confident that Villa can get an away day victory. 2-1 to Villa and a happy new year on Tuesday as Mystic predicts a new era for Aston Villa with the takeover happening. However, his crystal ball is misted, and can't say if it will be a golden era!
