Or red card.

I'd rather they didn't get anyone sent off. We're not the best against ten men.

Hopefully we've got some sort of tactical plan for the right side of the pitch this time. Chilwell had the freedom of that side in the last VP match.

How we handle their FBs will probably decide this.

Come on Villa boys! To be in with a chance of a final and potentially silverware is a real bonus this season. Let's enjoy it, cheer the lads on and who knows what may happen! UTV!

I called a draw before the first leg and I have no idea why or how but I think we're going to win 2-1 tonight, Samatta and Grealish to score.

Anyone heard if the club have got anything planned? Not a fan of the little flags but scarves would look decent. Wonder if the big flag from the Albion play offs will make an appearance again aswell. Just as long as they don't do a cringetastic light show, can't stand them and don't get why they seem to be all the rage.

We are all getting little flags with fireworks attached to them.

I know I'm a miserable bastard (most of my posts seem to moaning about things the majority people consider harmless fun), but I'm really not a fan of these attempts to create organised atmosphere with flags, scarves, light shows, clappy things etc. Obviously flags and scarves are considerably more acceptable than the second two, but I do think most of these displays tend to look a bit artificial. We're quite capable of creating a decent atmosphere without props.

I'd love us to get a shot at some silverware (obviously), but I'm more concerned about losing a key player to injury tbh. Whatever the final result, just give it a good go guys & save summat for the coming 6-pointer with B-Muff.

Smith has already said he doesn't know whether to start with a striker, or stick with those that have been fine in the last couple of games.

We cant do a light show as our floodlights aren't LED.  Fun fact from within my lighting world!

I would take a win over Bournemouth over a win tonight.
If it wasn’t citeh in the final and if the impact of relegation was not so potentially devastating I might think differently.
I just hope we come through without any serious injuries to key players.
