Lawro's tipped us to win 1-0. Is that good or bad?

I mean he’s a utterly useless boring bell end. Does that answer your question?

He also tipped us to win more games than we did at the start of last season, so not good form.

1-1 for me. They will be up for it after their opening day loss and after the phantom goal that was but wasn't, and I think we'll be a little bit rusty.

With crowd? A barreling, noisy win.
Without crowd? A low key draw.

1-1

We need to win this - I think that Sheff Utd will be 1 of the teams that will be in the bottom 7 this season

A pleasant change to read a bit of positivity this morning from Nick Ames in the Guardian’s ‘Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend’

Villa’s strengthened spine on view
Emiliano Martínez is expected to make his debut for Aston Villa against Sheffield United, capping a whirlwind three months for the goalkeeper. When football restarted after the Covid-19 shutdown, Martínez was widely viewed as a competent if unremarkable deputy to Bernd Leno. This week he was transferred for £20m, to considerably mixed feelings around Arsenal, and those who backed him throughout a difficult decade in north London are convinced that he will quickly become established as one of the league’s best in his position. His arrival should strengthen Villa’s spine significantly and, given they also wish to sign Bertrand Traoré and Milot Rashica, the big signings are unlikely to end there. Villa look bright, ambitious and well poised to push on from last term’s great escape.

I think we should be targeting six points from our first two league games. That's not disrespectful to Sheffield Utd, who were miles better than us last season, but it's a home game against a team outside the established "big/rich" 6 so we should be looking for a win.

Can't see what all the fuss is about.
I think Sheff United will struggle a little this season.
2-0 win.

If we want to be more comfortable than last season we need to be getting regular wins at home against anyone outside the top 6. I think we might sneak it 1-0.
