Thanks. Hope we visit Craven Cottage in the Premier League the season after next.
A bit weird how we all love the trip to Fulham but nearly always play shit there and come away with f**k all!

In fairness they nearly always lose at Villa Park, to even things up.

Are people without tickets generally watching the game in town or around Villa Park?

Goodness me, no.  I shall be watching at home, on the edge of the North Wessex Downs.

On holiday in Brittany. Praying for a good Mobdro feed. Sky Sports App not bloody working even though it should be. Virgin customer who is royally pissed off.

I don't think the Sky Sports App works abroad. I'd imagine with the number of British tourists there is bound to be a pub showing it, as BE says. Especially as it isn't a bank holiday over there so there won't be any French games on at the same time.

Drinking this evening with some sad Sunderland fans.

Hope not to be in their position this time tomorrow.

We can’t lose to a side whose most famous supporter is Mick Philpott.

Totally shitting bricks.

I am starting to get irritated by everything and we are still a number of hours away. It feels so much worse than last year and I don't know why!

Feeling the same. I don’t normally get to stressed but the weekend has dragged waiting for tomorrow. Feeling so much more important than last year

Just getting ready for work after a terrible nights sleep thinking about the game. Kicks off at midnight here and regardless of the score I can guarantee they’ll be no sleep tonight either. Never felt this nervous about a game before. Absolutely bricking it. I need this over with for my health as much as anything.

Keep looking at the clock, thinking I need to go to bed soon - leaving at 8 am - but knowing there is absolutely no way I am going to get any sleep at all.
Complete bag of nerves and excitement....and I turn 65 next week!
