The other derby day match up comes from birmingham as Aston Villa take on Birmingham from Villa park in another live TV game. Aston Villa started the season off rather badly after getting trounced up at newcastle and getting beat to local rivals stoke. However since Gerrard Houllier has come in at Aston Villa and they appear to be a little better but the results don’t seem to be changing much. The only decent result they have had of late is a 0-0 draw with Chelsea, other than that Aston Villa have suffered defeats to sunderland and tottenham.
Birmingham however, seem to be a little bit of a surprise for the season with some really good results. Although they only have 2 wins in 6 games. This doesn’t mean that they don’t have enough in their locker to come out ontop when Aston Villa vs Birmingham in the very early kick off. If you are a fan of each, you will also know, this is a derby and it doesn’t really matter how your form has looked in the past, the form book goes out the window when there is a derby about.
My predicition for this match is a score draw, probably 1-1 with neither Aston Villa or Birmingham losing face to local rivals.
