Villa Take On Chelsea In The FA Cup Semi Final

Villa Take On Chelsea In The FA Cup Semi Final

Here we go again! Wembley for Villa.

This time in the FA Cup semi finals (what a rip off eh, semi finals at Wembley... hey ho, that is modern football for you)

The draw has been made and Villa face Chelsea.

That leaves Spurs/Fulham to play Portsmouth.

Could have been kinder I guess but to be the best you have to beat the best.

The ties will be played on Saturday 10 and 11 April.

Ticket allocation and sale information will no doubt follow shortly from the club. The ticket nightmare returns. Same as I said last time when people asked me. 'No, I can't'

Thought you were going to get a pasting judging by your first half no-show, but well played in turning it around - cracking cup tie, and although I'm kind of rooting for Pompey (purely sentimental reasons) I reckon you're in with a good shout for the final. With any luck it might distract you in the pursuit of 4th place too! ;)
