Someone talking about celebrity fans has worried me. Last year we lost to a team in white supported by Citizen Smith. This year we are playing a team in white supported by the actor who played Citizen Smith. 🙁

This is it! Buzzing for this game! If we play to our strengths and our big players step up, then we will do well. We obvs need to keep our discipline and keep 11 players on the pitch. The Villa fans as always will be brilliant and will help the team over the line. Come on Villa boys!!!! UTV!!!!

Never been this nervous before a game.
Kick off at 10 in the evening here on west coast of Oz.
Will be watching on Bein Sport here.
I think the consequences of not getting up is getting to me (losing half of our current team).
I have already told my work colleagues I won't be in tomorrow whatever the outcome.
Once the wife goes to bed I will be using a bottle of scotch to get me through.
Please just win Villa.....

Midnight in Melbourne and I will be hoping to go to bed around 2.30 with a smile on my face. So many things are reliant on the result a win and JG stays, lose and its his last game in a Villa shirt. Win and we will be in a position to offer for the best of our players on loan lose and we are faced with almost a complete make over, but there again win and it will be a survival test in the premiership lose and we are guaranteed to win most of our games in the championship and another exiting season how's that for a back up.

I feel rough, just been dreaming about SJM, he kept walking around my bedroom telling me to chill out and that he and Jack have decided it will be 3-0 today.
As for the team, Iíd go with Whelan over CH and Iíd start KodjiA.

Just been out for an early morning jog before heading off to Wembley via a full English in Mere Green. Just seen the coaches on their way to a pick up in Walmley. It's close now...Come on you Lions!!

Starts at 4.00 in the afternoon here, no tv coverage.
My son has got a relatives sky login details and bought a UK domain (?) so we can watch on his laptop.
 he can only be home half an hour after kick off so I will be following here and the bbc site, please, concise commentary would be appreciated.

Iím going to be watching on my phone in Leipzig today. Not sure if the hotel will have it on or if my requests will be lost in translation!
