Well, it's time. After a week of build-up, it's time that we see what these two teams have in store for us. It's time that we put long-simmering hatred aside and watch a game of football be contested. It's time that we recognized that Villa have a chance to go three wins in a row for the first time in Paul Lambert's career here.
It's time for some lineups. And it's time for comments down in the open thread! Join us, won't you?
