The Mail have run a quote from manager Paul Lambert, where he says that Villa are the bigger club;
I hate this sort of comment, as you just know that there’s every chance it’ll come back and bite you on the backside.
No doubt Lambert was asked the question outright after earlier comments from Ken McNaught saying we’re the bigger club, but I wish he’d have just said he didn’t want to get involved in that sort of question.
Still, it’s not that big a deal and I have to say I have a lot of respect for the Albion. Certainly more so than the mob down the road.
They have a great history, have won plenty and have decent support.
Certainly I think most Albion fans see us as the biggest local rivals and I suspect quite a few of us see them as ours.
The Albion fans do get a bit lairy though when this subject is raised and it has led to their fans bombarding the site on occasions.
Which is ok as long as things are kept civil.
Me, I’m just hoping for a decent game.
