I'm looking forward to this I reckon we will get a 2-1 win and Wembley bound.

Theyíre meeting at The Tap In, Elephant & Castle according to the Twitter page

Yep, for anyone London-based definitely come check out the Tap In!

Good atmosphere and numbers, and £4 a pint if you bring something with Villa colours on.

Leicester are so desperate to win that they will probably risk Vardy even if not fully fit.

It will dent their fragile ego if we win. They hate it that they will never be able to compete with us a big club. Another always in our shadow, along with a few others.

How are they in our shadow?
They won the league a few years ago, in with a shout of CL qualification.
Have assembled a very good team that ripped us apart at VP.
Yes they have a lego ground and stupid clackers but in our shadow?

Yeah I'm not following that either tbh. I don't love them on account of their fans but I admire what they've done in the league both the season they won and since, particularly this year. We're 16th and they're 3rd by quite some distance so let's not be silly.

Agreed, Leicester are a far bigger team than us these days. Need to get our heads around that.

Winning the modern-day Premier League is probably a bigger achievement than anything we've ever done, apart from 1982.

They might be a better team. They'll never be a bigger club.

I think they can never become as big a club as we are, have been or could be, but donít forget we were a couple of Billionaires away from oblivion.

What does that have to do with which is the bigger club?

What's also conveniently forgotten in the rush to praise Leicester is that they went into administration and came out thanks to a deal that was so outrageously unfair it led to the rules on such situations being changed.

Yep and lots of small businesses went out of business, see also Portsmouth and others.

Not a bigger club, more successful in recent times that's for sure and good luck to them because Leicester broke up that ever boring top 4 syndrome, that said, Villa to win 2-1.

Come on Villa, one step away from the final.

Yes, well, technically Sunderland are a bigger club than Leicester. For all the good it does them, sitting 6th in League One.
