I think Brighton and hove Albion are more significant these days to us than  smethwick Albion

I think it wasn’t quite until watching the highlights that I realised why in the stadium the F* the Albion chant was so hearty. Doh.

How are they jammy c***s? Unless it's because they were a club with a dodgy owner and going nowhere until they were taken over by billionaires, which sounds a lot like us.

i will never tire here of exposing the closet glory-hunters.  The blue Mancs aren't as prevalent as the Red c***s

Just stepped out to get my hair cut and it is absolutely vile out. Big coat weather my southern brothers and sisters who are travelling to this god forsaken outpost.

Come on you Villa boys! Would love a result today! Against the spuds and arses we were competitive and I'm expecting more of the same. If we are fortunate to be in with a shout with 15 to go I'd expect us to have learnt from those 2 previous games. I'm staying positive about this one! UTV!!

I do wonder whether McGinn's work rate takes it out of him and he seems to fade in the final minutes which seems to coincide with us faltering late on in some games.

Some very generous bets doing the rounds today. McGinn to score and the Villa win is 80/1 on Skybet and Grealish first goal is 33/1 on Paddy Power. 30/1 for the win. They don't fancy us at all do they?

I think we might get beat to be honest though but with some of their defence missing, this is hell of a chance to go up and get something. I'll go 3-1 to them though, I think they may have too much for us the way they are playing going forward. McGinn to put us in front with an early goal.

I think our nickname for the Albion should just be 'The Fucking Idiots'.

A while back on here, someone* called them ‘way we used to live inbred twats’ which is a phrase that has resonated for me ever since.

*Mazrim maybe?

Keep the scoreline respectable, lads, today!

Will keep our goal difference looking OK if we do, though Southampton helped us last night!

My favourite bet of the season is McGinn 1st scorer & us to win 3-2.
It`s nearly happened twice this season and is around 1000/1 today so a fiver has gone on it
