Albion Villa isn't the biggest derby for either team never mind Boca River.  ;)


I'm in Mexico at the minute so it's big news here. All to play for going into the 2nd leg.

Go on then, I'll bite (and welcome back by the way  ;) ).

May come as a surprise to you but I've known/met quite a few Vilers who see us as greater traditional rivals than Blues.

I also know more than a fair few who absolutely hate Albion with a passion.

For both of the above I refer to Smethwick Vilers (fkn disgrace), many from Great Barr, Handsworth and even Erdington.

Probably comes with living locally and for my sins actually knowing a few of the fkrs.

Fine by me.

Couldn't really give a toss about Boca v River Plate.

SOTV and all of the best  8) .

For us Black Country boys there is only one derby, and the pleasure of overturning the tw@ts 11 point lead and beating them to the Prem will NEVER be bettered for me.

It is on TV player free to watch online if anyone wants to watch it now.

Re wba vs vile it was known as the Derby of the Midlands and only diminished because of our 16 stint outside the top tier.

That plus playing the dings all the time made some value victory over them more.

But nothing beats beating the vile imo.

Perhaps it due to my age (51), and growing up in Brum, but Vile has always been the big derby for me and always will be. Despite all the other reasons to dislike Albion under Pullis, it was the two defeats in a week to a dire Vile side that topped it off for me. Unacceptable surrender against the enemy.

The final has been postponed again.

 Boca made a request to the their equivalent of uefa and a new date is to be set.

If you have a HD TV it's on free to watch on a channel called free sports.
