For the 734,562nd time this calendar year, Aston Villa and Blackburn Rovers meet up again tomorrow. Blackburn isn't much of a mystery and neither are the keys to beating them; Blackburn will kick you a lot and to beat them you have to not allow being kicked a lot to take a toll on you. They score goals by drawing fouls and capitalizing on free kicks and to keep them from scoring goals you have to avoid fouling them and defend well against free kicks.

If you couldn't tell, I do not like Blackburn. I also do not like writing about Blackburn. To be honest I hate watching them more than any other team in the Premier League, and if Aston Villa do not dictate the pace and style of the game, it could be absolutely terrible to watch. Just as many games involving Blackburn have a tendency to be. They're boring, they overly physical and they aren't very good.

Aston Villa should win. They have more talent than Blackburn. They're playing at home. Let's hope they do, because if not then we will have spent two hours watching Blackburn and won't have anything to show for it.
