Top 5 Second City Derby Moments

The international break is will and truly underway and club football has been put on hold. This gives me a great opportunity to write something a bit different than a standard preview or an opinion on the current outgoings at St.Andrews. Instead I’m going to be looking at the top five moments of my lifetime…

Aston Villa Preview vs Derby County (A)

A team managed by Dean Smith versus a team managed by Frank Lampard. Sounds like quite a treat for fans to witness, right? Well, usually it would be a game full of fast-flowing football but with Villa not quite being the finished package, it may be a tough game for the Claret and Blue at…
