Me and son on the way from his place in Chessington, aiming for Kilburn for beers. Wasn't at all nervous until reading people on here being nervous, now nervous, thanks.

Exiled in West London with a surprisingly high number of ĎHampton Villansí and so not quite a journey for us (though Wembley generally awkward place to get to). Planning to head to Swiss Cottage as last year but with a different result this time!! Hoping to meet up with a few from the Bartonís so let us know if you heading there. Safe travels all and letís hope for a fabulous day!! Nerves kicking in but not sure anything can be worse than the Albion second leg! UTV 😩
How's the weather looking?

Lovely and sunny right now!

Good luck to the lads today, think it will come down to who wants it the most, who's best prepared, fingers crossed.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our Villa dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the Lion;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage. UTV!!

All looking good.  Iíve got the Azeri barman to find Bein Sports. Fingers crossed and weíll be able to get the match on their huge screen later.  Otherwise itís my laptop and hunting here there and everywhere.

On a train from Luton to Brighton, about a dozen Derby fans got on at Luton, they all look as nervous as I feel which makes me feel better now.

If ,unlike last year, we turn up, we will win. Do us proud lads, UTV.

I'm feeling confident, last season we knew Fulham were the better side & Bruce approached it like we were. Today will be different, if we hit the ground running Derby will not cope with us.

Last season's defeat left us staring into the abyss & before the game we all knew the consequences. Thankfully the new owners saved us.

Whatever happens today, our football club is back & heading in the right direction for the first time in many years.

UTV

Same for me. Was much more nervous last year.

Sat on my balcony in Malta, just opened a can, counting the minutes til kick off.  Christ I'm nervous!  Come on Villa, nice early couple of goals to settle the nerves.  Who am I kidding, they're going to put us through it.
