West Brom vs. Aston Villa: Open match thread and lineups

Clive Mason

Join us as Aston Villa fight for dominance in the midlands!

Who's the best team in the midlands: West Bromwich Albion or Aston Villa? We almost certainly will have no idea based on the outcome of today's match, but should Villa win it will still be fun to rub it in the faces of West Brom fans who take umbrage at that sort of thing. We've got your lineups for the derby here, and be sure to join us in the comments as the match progresses. We promise to be only slightly insane.

Remember: a win today launches Villa into the top half of the table and well clear of relegation West Brom. This one's for all the marbles, lads.
