FA Cup. It's our Elgin Marbles. Bring it home.

Dreamland would the Premier League. To a lesser extent, the Europa Conference - another European trophy would be a huge addition.

I would be so grateful for either the FA Cup or League Cup again though. Just end the drought. There's also the old romance of the FA Cup, if we could win it while we're still the old Villa I love I'd be grateful. Before we go full on prawn sandwiches and the FA Cup becomes an insignificance.

Well that's depends if you believe the future is prawn-coloured I suppose!  I'd say it's more likely now than it was, say, 5 years ago, but far from certain. 

I'd like us to win a cup, of course and we should have a decent / half chance this year.  But the league is the one.  Given that is hugely unlikely in our current guise, consistent CL qualification is the next best thing and might lead to a genuine challenge. 

So my realistic list (until total world domination is within reach) would be:

1. CL qualification
2. FA Cup
3. Europa Conference
4. League Cup

The FA Cup - seen everything else that matters - can die happy then (maybe not immediately though)

Rather than be realistic, I've just listed in order of priority:

Champions League
League
FA Cup
Europa League
CL Qualification
League Cup
European Conference

I have kind of formed the feeling that we likely won't win anything again in my lifetime.

Hmmm.

FA Cup - Win it once and we'll do it again fairly soon
League - It's been longer to win this than the League Cup, plus it's the hardest given the games.
League Cup - Domestic trophy, Wembley....
Conference League - Not won it, so it would be nice to win... but will be viewed as not being a major trophy.

Time travel.

When do we want it?

It’s irrelevant.

I'd like us to win something. It's been over quarter of a century, so I don't mind what it is specifically.

If I was to pick one thing, it'd be the Europa Conference. I don't give a shit what anyone else says, I prefer cups to leagues, and I prefer European ones to domestic ones
