No doubt the league form has dampened people's enthusiasm, mine included, but this is a golden opportunity to get to a semi final and I fully expect us to take it. Win a few over Xmas as well and everyone will be bang up for getting to Wembley.

Man Utd
Man City
Or Everton /Leicester

I like Everton to beat Leicester !
If they don't would have Man utd as choice over 2 legs

Having to play Leicester or Man city over 2 legs be defensively painful but maybe some sort of fun for goal laden scorelines.

Everton I don't mind to take on.
Wesley favourite team to play against !

And then Everton in final.

Playing a lower league team over 2 legs in a Semi final of the League Cup? what could possibly go wrong?

We didn't too well last time we played Oxford in the semis! I won't believe our name is on the cup till I see Chester whacking Grealish on the head with the trophy!

And doesn't Dean Smith know it.
He certainly will be reminding the players if that becomes the situation.
That's the positive of having one of our own in charge he won't allow for such a circumstance.
The front foot attacking football means our better players will go out to win the games.
Up the villa ,!

Prices have been reduced for ST holders and those of us that have already purchased will get a food/drink voucher

Quote
Aston Villa is delighted to announce an exclusive offer to Season Ticket Holders for our Carabao Cup quarter final tie with Liverpool at Villa Park on Tuesday December 17th.

For a 72-hour period, Season Ticket Holders who have not secured a seat for the game can purchase a ticket for any part of the stadium for just £20 per adult, subject to availability.

As a gesture of goodwill to those Season Ticket Holders who have already bought at the previously arranged prices, they will receive a £10 concourse catering refreshment voucher to be redeemed at any of the remaining matches at Villa Park this season.

The decision to modify prices for Season Ticket Holders comes after Liverpool FC have made clear their intentions in the competition.

Our twin priorities are to fill Villa Park for this game and offer our most loyal supporters Ė our Season Ticket Holders - the best possible value. We hope Season Ticket Holders who have already bought their match tickets for the game understand that the decision to modify prices is not taken lightly and has been made due to the unique nature of this fixture.

Season Ticket Holders who have not yet bought a seat for the game should contact the club in the normal manner. Those Season Ticket Holders who have already purchased their ticket for the game will receive their refreshment voucher, which can be used to buy any food or drink within the stadium, by post this month.

Obviously they're starting to panic about having an empty ground then.

So they're blaming the Liverpool line up for the poor uptake in sales?

Why not just admit, we got it wrong?

It seems a shame that some Villa fans are further belittling the game tomorrow night, besides what the lobscouse may or may not be doing. For example some kids maybe attending Villa Park for the first time under the lights with their parents and grandparents and for them it will be a huge event in their lives, where the bond between club, parents and offspring will be fostered.
My first game was with my dad all those years ago when Little and Gidman were involved in the youth cup vs scum. I didn't spend the match counting the numbers in the crowd, but enjoying something that was to become routine with my dad that was to see us through to my adulthood.
Needless to say enjoy the game and as always UTV!

As well as Oxford and Bradford doing us in League Cup semi finals we didn't exactly have a picnic against Colchester when they took us to penalties in the second round in 1979.

Iím dreading this game

I so want to win it but havenít got much confidence in the likes of Taylor, Elmo, Lansbury etc being able to boss anything
I decided not to go because I just didnít want to risk my kids having to endure Liverpool pre school kids giving us the run around on our own pitch

hope Iím wrong obvs

if we do get through to Wembley  Iíll be there glory hunting like a good un though

The Liverpool under 23 team villa play
No form no win in last 3 matches for them
December form:
1-1 away at Huddersfield Dec 2
1-1 failing to beat Chelsea under 23 playing against 10 men for last 20 mins Dec 14

11 days ago their last away match hammered 4-0 to spurs.

Basically Villa quite easily get 5 - 10 goals.
The opposition tonight will make errors , give away possession and penalities as they are not yet fully at developed stage compared to premier league player.

One or two may show something of merit but realistically Villa will play them off the park , have a high amount of shots therefore goals and have far higher fitness , strength and ability.

-8 goal difference in their under 23 league 7 position from 12 not near the top so not one thing to fear.

9-0 win Sweet Caroline played at full time
