With the clash of the colour clashes coming up at the weekend, Matt Turvey hopes there will be be no mistaking which team plays the best football as Aston Villa take on West Ham.
Come the weekend, the media may well paint Aston Villa's game against West Ham as "The Attack Of The Clones". Now, before I incur the wrath of Lucasfilm for their use of the strapline for Star Wars Episode II, I should explain.
Sam Allardyce's teams have, for the majority of his career, been known for their long balls. This season, despite the protestations of Paul Lambert in press conferences, Villa have been using long balls too, mainly to get the ball from Brad Guzan to Christian Benteke in the shortest time possible.
Both teams also have claret and blue home shirts, and both teams' shirts are made by Macron. It is starting to sound a bit spooky.
Which, given the fact it is Halloween, is probably just what you'd expect, although I hope I don't get any additional shocks when the game kicks off.
For Villa, a win is desperately needed. Not so much because it is late in the season, nor because they are locked to the foot of the table - neither point is true - but because there's a need to extinguish some anger that is building at the club.
Prior to the season kicking off, most of the media stated that Villa had the hardest start to their campaign, and the statistics of the placement of their opponents back such a statement up - Villa have had a rough ride so far.
However, as is often the case with football, emotion gets tied up between games. Fans get worried that individual losses are going to become a loss of form and, after two-in-a-row for Villa, it might feel like things are happening all over again.
Understandably, thoughts of yet another season battling away at the wrong end of the table is going to get the fans' collective backs up - nobody likes losing more than they win, especially if that team is a Premier League ever present.
In simplistic terms, Villa should be beating the likes of newly promoted Cardiff, Crystal Palace, or Hull City. Up until now, Villa have only had the chance to play one team - drawing in the process - so results are inconclusive, though the situation isn't that simple.
Yes, Villa are veterans of the Premier League, but the boys in claret-and-blue - the Midlands-based team - haven't had it easy. Despite the investment of Randy Lerner, progress has undulated along with the finances, and austerity has caused both to come crashing quickly downwards.
In light of such a trend - even though Villa are actually progressing this season compared to last - fans will want to find something to hold on to, some small hope that could help them believe things are going to change, that this season will be better, that it won't be a case of waiting till game 36, 37 or 38 just to guarantee survival.
Though statistics dictate progress is happening, figures aren't always visible, whilst the style of football is. As stated before, Lambert protests that Villa are not a long ball team, but despite a more concerted effort to play-it-out-from-the-back against Everton, few can doubt that the Guzan to Benteke ball is one of Villa's most frequently played.
All this leaves Villa fans hoping for a result at the Boleyn Ground. Will a point be enough to give the maager some breathing space in his second season at the club? Some may say not, though a point would certainly be progresss for Villa.
Whatever happens, a good performance is needed, if only to inspire a bit more support from certain fans. If not, Lambert may well find more fans voicing their discontent on social media, despite a challenging start and statistical progress.
So, for the sake of all that is claret and blue, Villa's claret and blue that is, give us a win chaps - we have faith, and we know you can do it.
