Nerves are kicking in here. Don't know what to do with myself until 3.30 when the teams are announced. I hope everybody is prepared for this to go to penalties?

Some 'wag' obviously winding me up as well.  I think you know me well enough by now.

I'd like to see Conor get a start in a more compact 5 man midfield.

Twatter is best avoided until 3.30 when we find out for real.

Ye Olde Swiss Cottage is full of the usual suspects, I'm told. Have fun, everyone.

We are.

Re-watched 1994 and 1996 highlights. How is it so long ago? Feels much more recent.

Come on villa, write yourselves into the history books.

We have nothing to lose and all to gain. Nobody expects us to win. But we've seen teams pull off upsets in cup finals, and we've seen pull off upsets as recently as yesterday. It's about desire, and a willingness to want it so much more than your opponent. And that starts with the manager and how he sends the team out. Go out to defend and stand off and we will be taken apart quickly. We have to bite into every single challenge and as Watford did to Liverpool not let them have a moment on the ball. Win this and the energy it will create will be astronomical. It will be something that can help us stay up.

Still be in with a chance at 75 minutes. Don't head in at half time with no reason to come out for the second half.

This is the key.

My prediction, for what it's worth, is that City will come out all guns blazing and snatch an early goal, but we'll hold them at that til HT.

If we come out second half at 0-0 or 1-0 to them I think we'll have a chance to pick things up second half and have a proper go.

My concern is that Smith won't have plans B and C ready. If ever there was a time to change our habit of having little or no game plan, it's today.

But, what will be will be. UTV

Genius to close the Green to avoid litter and congestion...only to have the same amount of people turn up but block the road instead.
