TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT - Come On Villa!

Today's the day. No not for the teddy bears picnic stupid, it would be much too wet and cold... today is the day Villa hold their nerve and get us to Wembley.

So first off.

COME ON YOU VILLA BOYS...

Mystic Mug says a Villa win, he doesn't care how or what the score is, just a win and Wembley.

Looks like we might get a sell out or near to it which is great news, don't forget the flags are being given out tonight which is always a great gesture I think and adds to the spectacle.

And my expertise (cough ahem) shared with the Blackburn Rovers fans: A 'Good Going Rover' with Vital Villa

Fieldy: Martin O'Neill has stated that Villa will be treating tomorrow's 2nd leg Semi Final v Blackburn as a one off match and will not be relying on the 1st leg result to see us through. Speaking on the Official Site Monny explained that he's talked to the players and told them to ignore the result in the first leg, have a positive approach and go all out tomorrow night and win the match in it's own right. 'We want to go and take the game on its merit. We just want to go and win the match.' Full article: Monny On Semi

Fieldy: Petrov In Captain's Cry No, nothing like Big Girls Don't Cry, Stiliyan Petrov has rallied the troops ahead of tonight's Cup Final Semi Final 2nd Leg Final against Blackburn. Speaking on the Official Site our Captain Bulgaria has told the team to keep calm, remain composed, and at all costs (should he be playing) ignore all temptation to boot the living ***** out of Diouf. Well admittedly he didn't say the last bit, but I bet he's thinking it. I do, I bet he's is! Well at least I am, does that count? Full article: Petrov In Captain's Cry

Ron Atkinson is praying his pre-season prediction comes true tonight and Villa reach the Carling Cup final. Full article: www.avfc.co.uk

MON's preview: www.avfc.co.uk

Stephen Warnock expects a 'packed and buzzing' Villa Park this week as the first team stars go in search of Carling Cup joy. Full quotes: www.avfc.co.uk

Former Villa skipper Chris Nicholl (see his goal 1:45 in via the youtube clip above in the 'a reminder of our great league cup finals) told the official site: 'You can be sure that Martin will be after this. He will make sure his players are ready for it. He will be very serious. This is our best chance. He will be targeting this competition. The game on Wednesday is absolutely vital. He will have his players ready for it - I can assure you. We have a tradition here at Aston Villa and Martin has a great pedigree in the competition too with Leicester. He will feel like it's his competition. He will be after it. Wednesday - get here. We want a big crowd. We want people behind Aston Villa. We want the fans here because this is a competition which could be ours. Let's get after it - we can almost touch it.'

And as Rod says, Tonight's the night!



And once more, COME ON YOU VILLA BOYS!

The tension is unbelievable , imagine how the players must be feeling. Who would play 4-5-1 with Gabby up front in view of injury doubts over Carew ? Its hardly defensive with players like Milner Young and Downing in midfield and we could always bring Heskey on if needed. The only doubt i would have is who to bring in in midfield Delph or Sidwell.

451 would make sense to me too but cant see MON doing it. Hesko and Petrov will play even though they both look exhausted. Id personally swap Hesko for Sidders/Reo and play Milly behing Gabby in a free role. Makes for too much sense that though

Agree with both of the last two comments but if we are dreaming of wembley we can allow ourselves to dream of a 451 formation full of attacking flare, goals galore and fight all over the field surely.....

Calm (deep breath taken) - seriously I don't care what O'Neil does, what formation he plays or what players are picked providing we get a draw or win. Should he mess this up, expect me on here tomorrow morning for an almighty rant. UTV :-)
