Did we last play them at Kenilworth Road in the Ch'shit or back in '92?

Pre season friendly in 2013 when they were non league. We lost 2-0.

Fairly confident for this one. Bet on Luton to win.

They were plastic pitch pricks in the 80s/early 90s, right?

As with the Forest game, an early 1st goal will be crucial. But recently I think they had the stuffing knocked out of them by drawing at Newcastle when they were winning 4-2. Since then they lost to both Sheffield Utd and Manure at home. That and now knowing they need a win again to drag someone else into the mix should make them open up.

That was my only trip to Kenilworth Road. It was fairly clear that we weren’t going to walk the Championship.

That was only the half of it. The chairman was David Evans, a tory MP who was a standout prick even back then. He was successfully sued by the Birmingham Six for libel.

The way that Luton play, hopefully our centre halves will be able to deal with a lot of high balls into our penalty area and the physicality of their forwards.

We could have done with Mings for this game.

Last time i went their was either March or April 1983 -  we lost 2-1 (late goal for them)

Think they also banned away fans, because their fans kept causing trouble.

The less said about Luton the better but I suppose we shouldn't tar a whole club with a tainted brush from 30 odd years ago. On the positive side I like their quirky ground and I've always had time for Nick Owen.

But it's precisely this sort of side that can be an irritant, like sand in the suncream, a stone in your shoe or a hangover that lingers for days. That's why I am wary and without wanting incur the wrath of DW, feel that this is one of those games where we, out of nowhere, throw in a rank bad display that surprises and frustrates in equal measure. And we reserve these for TV games it seems. I've been way off with some predictions this season and here's hoping I'm utterly off beam here.

2-0

It was my first away game with Villa.  May 1992.  A kid called Mark Bosnich made his debut in goal.

I'll be there on Saturday for my second visit to Kenilworth Road.

And I was seven years old.

I'm now Thirty Nine with wife, daughter, mortgage, dog.

Bloody hell.

It'll be a goal fest and another 4-2 win for us, leaving Nick Owen in a foul mood on Midlands Today.
Good I really have never liked him or Anne diamond. He looks like a vicar with a case of the chufties
