Tickets arrived in the post today.  Therefore my irrational prediction is 3-1 Villa.

Got one earlier, 125.

Would happily add a zero on the end of the price if it guaranteed a Villa win.

Good news - I've managed to get hold of two tickets! 

Not so good - I'm in the 'neutral' area (club Wembley?)

Have any of you guys been in this area before? If so, an I allowed to wear Villa colours?

Yes I've been there.  Theoretically no club colours.  If you happen to wear a blue shirt or a claret jumper, then that's fine.

Villa sold out their allocation of 33,666.

City's final allocation was 34,854 seats so if City ticket site accurately reflects what's left in that allocation, we' may just very slightly outnumber the Villa. City's initial allocation was Maybe.

City's initial allocation was 33,889 so at some point we must have got an extra 1,000 seats.......


Not according to bluemoon today !!!!

This is all about initial club allocation and the allocation available to fans.

Our increase was as a result of not all players, club officials etc taking up their seat options thus more became available to supporters to buy. I suspect the same situation has happened for Man City.

Just because they've struggled to sell theirs doesn't mean they can suddenly hand over another 1000 tickets in the middle of their block to us. The extras aren't seats on the boundary of the two sets of fans...

City have confirmed they will cancel tickets for any villa fans that have purchased on their site. The fans should have kept quiet it was only a matter of time until city did something like this.  If you have booked recently live in brum and have no booking history it wont be hard for them to identify you. Wasted their money now.

Only way for them not to know is to purchase off one of these third party sites which you pay more.

Villa socks and boxers it is then!

If, by some miracle, we win, I'll probably be seen running around club Wembley in just those items 😂

Just to make you really happy I will take 1125 off you when Jack lifts the cup.

Got me and the old man two tickets as wed been to 10 home games but I massive,y panicked that I wouldnt get one so paid silly money for one off stub hub (180) its block 123 row 2 so assume its @ corking view. Also have a feeling it might be Man City end. All it said on website was West End block 123 which I assumed was Villa but upon looking Im not so sure.
