Crewe was 2019/20 on our way to the final. Stoke at home 2020/21, bit of a debacle. But the next league game wasn't bad.

Their capacity is 28,723.
Average attendance last season 16,104.

They could easily give us 8,000 if we reckon we could sell them.

I've checked the EFL Carabao Cup rules

We have a right to 10% as a minimum - more by mutual agreement.
Ticket requests to be made within 3cdays of the draw.
Ticket prices to be agreed between clubs.
Away tickets cannot be sold for more than equivalent home tickets.

Interesting what sort of approach regards starting eleven will be taken. We have Palace few days before but don't play in the league till the Sunday 28th away to West Ham.

Gerrard didn't manage to win a domestic cup in Scotland. One final in 6 attempts. I think he's highlighted the cups as something to target, so I have to be looking to go deep or really win one. Certainly a capable squad for the task.And SG has the right attitude and mentality to be a manager who wins a cup.

I think Olson will play in goal and Young as captain. Other than that, I am not sure for now as it depends on player performances on Saturday and Palace and who has played

The last time I was at Bolton - 17 March 2018 - was the coldest I have been in over 65 years of following the Villa, colder than Moscow in February. The snow was blowing horizontally across the top of the stands. I think it may be somewhat different on the 23rd!

Weird old day for the weather. Sun shining in Manchester city centre in the afternoon then absolutely Baltic by the time the match finished. And we lost.

That match really was bastard cold. I remember my friend saying "at least it's warmed up a bit in the second half", before I pointed out that was because he was holding two Bovrils.

The game should never have gone ahead.

Bournemouth Lions took a mini bus. Snow was so bad I'm amazed we made it home. Coldest I've ever been at a game.
