A win and a good performance tonight is also good for Saturday's game.

Confidence is everything.

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

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

And your point is?

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.

DMail. But a good read.

I know they put out a weakened side last night but Bournemouth were pretty awful for most of the game against a rank average Arsenal as well.

Good win tonight and we can take them Saturday as well - players should bust a gut in next 2 games as they have a decent break coming up

Not a million miles away from us being bailed out of administration by Billionaires and selling the rights to VP to keep the club ticking. I could see the rules changing around that in the near future.

In 10 years time, a run of silverware for them and a string of bad results for us, and there's an argument to be had about who the bigger club is.

Let's take one step towards keeping the balance firmly in our favour tonight ;)

It is a billion miles apart. How many innocent suppliers got screwed by us?

Sorry, I meant the concept of 'to a deal that was so outrageously unfair it led to the rules on such situations being changed', rather than the actual details of the incident.

Leicester will never be a big club.

They're my hometown team, but I've never liked them. They always had decent support, but never anything spectacular. Forest have always had better support, and Derby are very equal to Leicester in almost every respect. It's all about opinions, however.

My dad took me as a kid, but I thought Filbert Street was shit, the team was always Division 1 when I was growing up, and my Grandad was Villa. One glimpse of Villa Park and it was love at first sight.

If we beat them tonight we'll have done really well, because they play very decent football. I don't like Vardy, Rodgers, Maddison and co, but they'd improve us no end if they were ours. My dad will sit in the Holte tonight and cheer us on. In many ways he loves us more than Leicester. But if Leicester triumph, I'll bear no grudges. Not towards my dad, anyway.

I hate Leicester, though. Not as much as other teams, but they're certainly up there with West Brom, Spurs, Chelsea and Newcastle.

Fuck them. Up the Villa.

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.
You're right about the Bournemouth game being much, much more important. I was extremely apprehensive this time last week before the Watford game. 

As far as I'm concerned, getting to the League Cup semi-final has been a bonus, a little winter warmer, considering it's our first season back in the Prem, and it would be great to win tonight!

As I said before, if we do get through, Manure could pull off a result against £iteh tomorrow...

Absolutely this, as with 15 days to our next game after Saturday I want to see our strongest possible side tonight and v Bournemouth

There's absolutely no argument to be had, ever.

Nothing we've done has given us a ridiculously unfair adantage over every other club we're competing with and been almost totally dependent on future success.
