This is a shame to read. There are still tickets available for Villa v Chelsea at Wembley this weekend.
Not sure if Chelsea have sold out their allocation. To be fair it is easier to get there when already in London (although only just, what a stupid place for a National Stadium ffs... I digress)
Putting aside those who genuinely want to go but can't due to work/lack of money/family commitments, it is still shocking how many wanted final tickets - and how many will want FA Cup final tickets if / when we get there but don't want to cheer the lads on in the semi.
Ok, it is a trawl and a bit of a pain at times getting to Wembley and I do realise that some have been so badly traumatised by the The Great Munchies Wembley Scandal! but surely some aren't holding back because they think we can't win? Surely those who aren't the managers biggest fans aren't holding back? We support the club not a manager/player or board don't we!? This isn't the Villa way is it?! Also, although the underdogs and on the back of a bit of a mauling, we have beaten them before, we'll beat them again, what better way to spend the day than getting down to cheer on the Claret And Blue to our first FA Cup final in a decade?!
Anyway, mini ramble over... not looking to open up the bigger fan argument but I thought these tickets would be snapped up. Don't like anyone's chances of getting a final ticket if they don't have the semi final attendance record either!
Personally, I can't wait. COME ON YOU VILLA BOYS!
Villa's semi-final match-up with Chelsea is nearly upon us and your backing will be vital as we look to progress to the FA Cup Final.
From 8.30am today (Thursday), supporters with ANY Aston Villa booking history - home or away - will be eligible to buy a semi-final ticket on a one ticket per client reference number basis.
Season card holders are also reminded that they can STILL purchase a further two tickets per season card reference number.
All bookings will be limited to six tickets per transaction with purchasers only able to buy available tickets and limited to personal callers to the Villa Village Ticket Office due to postal restrictions - available on a first come, first served basis subject to availability.
Due to the close proximity of this fixture, it is now impossible to guarantee tickets will arrive with purchasers if posted.
Therefore, tickets will only be sold to personal callers or supporters who can collect their tickets from the Villa Village Ticket Office prior to 3pm on Friday April 9.
The big match takes place on Saturday April 10 - ko 5pm - at Wembley Stadium.

In the very latest news update by the British Transport Police, they are strongly advising fans to check the availability of trains returning to Birmingham once the game has finished as there is a limited service available.
