What an awesome night!

We more than held our own in the first half, but rode our luck at times and they came into it more in the second...however we had some outstanding performances (Nyland, Targett, Marv and Jack to mention a few) all over the pitch, and was looking like Leicester were more likely to get a second...which made it all the sweeter to get our much deserved last gasp winner at the end.


Still buzzing after that.  Pretty much agree with that summation and although I thought we tired in the latter stages, I still thought there might be one last chance.  Up pops Trez and there were bodies absolutely everywhere in the lower Holte!! 

Been a critic of his since his arrival, but thought Nyland was excellent tonight and did not put a foot wrong in either leg.  Thought others like Targett and Luiz had some of their best games of the season and Mings was solid again in the middle of the defence.  He seems to have got his sharpness back.  Thought Samatta had a promising debut and linked the play up well at times.

Thought it was back to the kind of performances against we saw before the Leicester game in the league.  Few mistakes here and there, but worked really hard and showed some real ambition going forward.  Hopefully a sign of things to come.

Just home.  That was one for the memory bank.  Fantastic team performance with Nyland playing an absolute blinder.

Got back 20 odd minutes ago. My colleagues thought I was mad going all that way for a football match. Nights like that make it all worthwhile. Up the fucking Villa!

Great result and team performance.

Nakamba was superb again but Nyland's top quality goalkeeping deserves MOTM.

It's been over 3 months since we last won consecutive matches. We need to enjoy and milk every last drop of this.

Very very reluctantly didnít go to help look after family, gutted to have missed it after the high of last Tuesday, but was great to watch on screen and I worried the hell out of my Mrs upstairs with strangled joyful shriek but didnít wake the baby!

Well done all on a cracking atmosphere!
Well done Deano, deserved progress.

Now it truly sinks in, the very carefully planned 3 week trip to Uganda, dates dictated by Viila fixtures to only miss Sheffield Home, and not thinking of cup dates. :/

So iíll Be looking to meet any Lions in Kampala (or possibly Mukono)

UTV!

Iíve liked Trezeguet. He hasnít always been great but he always has a knack of getting himself in a position to score. He did it again tonight. Well done Trez, weíll done Elmo with that cross. Gota love Egyptians tonight.

Really enjoyed that as a game of football, Leicester are a really good side and we went toe to toe with them for the whole tie, just deserved it I thought.

Outside of the usual suspects, Grealish ran the show and Mings/Konsa/Hause continue to look solid, I thought Marvellous had a great game as did Targett but Nyland was just superb. We're very well blessed for keepers it seems.

The first professional club in the world to play in a major domestic cup final in fourteen different decades.

Objection your Honour, Glasgow Rangers PLC were liquidated in that form in 2012. The new company was subsequently accepted into the Scottish Football League as a 3rd tier team.

I can think of loads of games where the opposing keeper has played a blinder leading to our defeat. Tonight we got one of those back. Nyland was extraordinary. And heís been excellent whenever heís been asked to step in. Brilliant all round by our boys. Well done Dean for getting us to the final.
