Aston Villa v Man City League Cup Final Pre Match Thread
« on: January 29, 2020, 09:25:40 AM »
Wembley Stadium, Sunday March 1st, 16.30 ko.


Absolutely fantastic to be in a final, credit to how far Deano and the staff have taken us. For context, January last year included 3-0 losses away at Wigan and at home to Swansea in the FA Cup.

Is there any hope that United can overcome City?

Any clues as to when ticket info will be released?

Revenge for 20 years ago when O Neill came and played with 4 centre backs in the second leg and they overcame us with anti football. I'm just glad to be in the final but i'm not hopeful either way. I thought we'd get battered in the semi though over the 2 legs so you never know.

Is it to much to hope that United beat City, same as Derby doing Leeds!!

I'm just delighted to be going back to Wembley. Let's worry about the opposition on the day.

The last time we had a League Cup Final on 1st March (1975) it ended well  :)

A Villa fan walked into a pub near Wembley Stadium and the bar man said "hello, the usual is it?"

No. Let's let the opposition worry about us on the day.

Have woken this morning with that comforting  glow that were off to a Final. This is what being a fan is about.

Back in November I booked a family holiday and guess what the flight to Istanbul departs BHX at 11.30 on 1 March :-\
A school boy error because as a supporter of a big club I should have checked out major event dates.

It's a sign of how things have changed that we regard Man U as easier opponents than Citeh.

Got 5 games on my history for this season (been to more but they were freebies). Just got a ticket for the Spurs game incase its the same criteria as playoff final.
