Boarded train at Warwick. Standing room only and they are already half sozzled with copious supplies with them. Farts and BO. This is not going to be a pleasant journey😥

Iím really not nervous at all. I was bricking it before the 2nd leg at West Brom. But Iíve been calm all weekend. I think weíll win without too much fuss. Hopefully inside the 90 mins as I have work tomorrow morning and it kicks
Off at midnight here.

More nervous this year than I was last which I put down to the fact that this time last year I didn't realise how far in the shit the club was.

Wait until the train back either way it'll be much worse

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 😩

Couldnt get a ticket and trying to stay calm but failing. Things to do but cant really concentrate. As someone posted earlier look at where we were in july to now, it'd make a great film but only if we win.

Heart says YES, head says FUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKK

I have just taught the potted history of Aston Villa to two Year 9 classes. I then taught them "And it's Aston Villa, Aston Villa FC... The world has ever seen."* I filmed them with my phone, they gave it a good go but it was a bit of a racket and they were a bit out of time with each other. I will get the Y10 kids to have a go at 11am as they should be able to give a decent rendition.

* We've been using superlatives and the present perfect in class so this was a good song to reinvest what they have learnt. ;-)

Trying to calm very bad nerves by focusing on how many big days being chopping blocks in the Prem gave us in recent years.   None.  I can and will take whatever goes with Wembley games.  FUCKTHEALBION.

I genuinely have not felt this nervous in a long time.

Iím fed up with coming down here and us not turning up. Iíll take a bit of that Liverpool semi final full time feeling if itís going!
