I'm going for a Villa win, can't explain that, just a feeling we will want it more then City, City will certainly score, so I'm looking at 2-1 Villa.

From there we relaunch into Premiership safety, so here we go, massive huge weekend coming up.

Would be amazing!

Starting to build up for it now.  Hoping for a Wembley performance and result like 1994, fearing one like 2015.  I just hope that unlike the latter horror show, they go out on Sunday, give it a real go and at least look like they have some belief that they can win.

Ta. I'm going Marylebone. I thought the replacements were replacement buses, that's not so bad then.

Bakerloo to Wembley Central. Easy.

Okay: so I sold my ticket as soon as I got it - mainly, 'cos it's a long schlep back to N Yorks after a tough game, and my son couldn't get a ticket. So, I'll be in a Harrogate pub with him.
As we approach the day can I just say:





HAVE FUN EVERYONE; CHEERS YOUR NUTS OFF AND SHOUT THEM TO VICTORY!! :) :) 8) :) :)

Remember the chant:  "We'll be running round the Bull Ring with the Cup" ?

Was that just a 70s thing - or did it last longer? With all the redevelopment of the city centre we may need to amend it. Any preferences?

We've sung it every time we've been to Wembley even for semi finals, sod it, we don't get the chance that often. The Bull Ring is still a place so no need to change it.
Or we could be running 'round a "recently built mixed use commercial development" with the Cup?

Still not excited about this. More concerned about the potential impact on the Leciester game. That said, it should make it less disappointing in the event we do lose and even better should we win.

It was sung in 94. Along with:

Tell big Ron, big Ron, to put the champagne on ice, were going to Wembley twice, tell big Ron, big Ron.

Robbie Fowler put paid to it with a 13 minute hatrick at Old Trafford if Im not mistaken!!

Yes it was sung leaving Wembley in 96 too.  With the extension of 'singing fuck off, fuck off Barry Fry.'

Hard to be excited when you know more than likely you're going to get battered for the whole country to see. I'm excited for the day but not the game but as you say we're all travelling down with no expectations so a close defeat will be OK or a miracle win will be unbelievable.
