I couldn't get any together, but we're still in there, just spread about.

I've entered the bham 10k to take my mind off Monday.

For those not attending where are you watching it?

Fucking hell.
Iíve got the vilest of stomach bugs that started on Thursday morning.
I feel like absolute crap and am literally shitting myself that I wonít be able to go on Monday.

Genuinely feel like blarting.


I recommend a good dose of Kaolin and morphine, providing you are not sitting next to me. If thats the case stay at home.

 good -I'm glad you got something half decent.

The way the tickets are distributed stinks.

I was very, very lucky, I got the last 3 together in level 2 (at 5.30 on the 1st day)  I believe other blocks became available at later stages.

Let's hope our gripes have paled into insignificance by this time on Monday night.

Sitting in the corner, rocking gently with my fingers crossed.

Seems a bit of extreme reaction to watching coverage of a 10K, if Iím being honest.

10K would see me off.

Cheers.

It's done now (coincidentally, the tickets are a foot from my face as I type this, pegged up in my kitchen).  I checked out the 3D view and it looks ok.

End of a row, so be like a proper away game.

Time for heroes now.

I reckon I could do it, as long as I have a couple of weeks.

Training? That's quite impressive.

I'm so nervous about this game that it almost doesn't seem real.

I'm in 136 and have been asked with you others from 130-137 to hold the flag out rather than wave it. Presume it's going to be a large mural with the claret and blue flags waved either side. Should look good.

Remember, the past is shit. Cholera, bad breath and dial up internet for pornography.

It also had the League Championship, Rotterdam, Peter Withe and Gordon Cowans to be fair

I would guess that the same applies for the vast majority of Villa fans. It really feels like the biggest game in our history, more so than last year, when ironically we stood at the very edge of the precipice...it must be the fear of not being able to fulfil the absolutely huge potential that we have should we win.

That said, if we win, I thank that the absolute relief and sheer elation will be quite something else, probably more than ever!
