On the fans and the atmosphere - Click Here

'It will be a different game with the crowd behind us. They will be right for us and will drive us on. We will give everything we've got to get through. It will be magic, a great night - it will be an even better night if we get through it, absolutely fantastic! We need the kind of start we produced at West Brom and I'm pretty sure they will.'

Lambert believing a good result and progression against Bradford can see our 'confidence break through' and aide us in picking more points up in the league - Click Here

'If we get through the confidence will break through. It will be great. The feeling around the club will be massive. It can definitely play a huge part in the season turning. It's clear there is no grey area in this one. We have to win and get through. We're not going in with any apprehension at all, we know we have to go and do it.'

Stating the obvious really. I fancy Villa to win this comfortably...but then that's what I said about the first leg...gulp !
MASON_PARKER
Okay I said I wouldn't log on again till end of season after the So'ton defeat, but, COME ON LADS!! DO US PROUD! p.s. my whole screen was just taken over by a stupid advertisement that i happened to hover over with the mouse!!! #messyclutteredwebsite

Personally I can't see any way we'll keep a clean sheet tonight (or for the rest of the season for that matter) and the chances of this villa side outscoring Braford by 3 goals is somewhere between none and f%&k all. Lambert is deluded, get ready for some more "we'll be fine" quotes after we get knocked out.
AVbornandbred
I just pray we get through, because if they don't Fridays trip to Millwall will be doubly hard and our confidence would be at a seasons low. COME ON YOU LIONS.......
Pride of Lions
Super, smashing, great, magic, we'll be fine. Yadda yadda yadda. Just go and play some football and stop with all the BS.
GibboVilla
I'm predicting a big Villa win, come on boys!! And then PLEASE can we have a good signing before Millwall. UTV
AdzVilla11
These youngsters need a boost of confidence, and if they aren't fired up for this one there's no hope for them. A BOLD prediction: Villa to win 5-1 tonight, and meet Swansea at Wembley. They must be patient and believe in themselves. Good luck, lads.
Madirish
Is it a full house tonight, cant wait to get rocking in the Holte End tonight. COUVB
astonsteve
PL wouldn't have to keep saying we'll be fine if some big girls blouses didn't start crying every time we lose. Work in progress. Not the finished article. Randy needs to back PL though.
Villan444
5-0 Villa. This is not an unrealistic result. Come on the lads, you can do it.
AstonThriller
What happens to or confidence if we go out then?
son_of_cher
Maybe if he played Bent more often we wouldnt lose :)
GibboVilla
Is it me or has the last 6-7 months aged Lambert by about 10 years???? He looked all freshed faced and ready to go in that pic above, but now he looks, well..... *****ed to be honest.
GibboVilla
Ah come on, that wasnt even a bad word I used.
GibboVilla
Cmon Paul give our fans something to cheer about mate, our lot deserve a pick me up really praying to Mcgrath we get through this the club needs it aswell! UTV!
CLIVETHEVILLAN
Good point Gibbo - look what a few months at the Villa will do to a fellow! My last Bradford game was a tight 1-0 the year we last got promoted - possibly the best atmosphre can ever remember at VP (up there with the semis against Tranmere and Blackburn); let's hope we get the place rocking tonight. I predict penos - won't be able to watch though...
onlyteaminthemids
think you as fans have to raise the roof tonight and hope it gets into the players and intimidates Bradford. One thing makes me smile and that is the prospect of a Bradford v Swansea final, nothing against Villa, but I would love to see the faces of Capital One, who will get an absolute lemon of a final
oxfordspur
My prediction is Villa win 4-2 with Benteke first goal ... 95-1. However this would put the villa out on away goals. I've also had a quid on Villa to win on penalties - 14-1
tvrwhitey
Cut the press-releases unless there is something to say (e.g. Scott Parker has signed a three year deal with Villa). Otherwise just go out and earn your wages like the rest of us have to do. Winning against Bradford should be an average day at work. Oh I forgot, this is 2013, this is Villa ... I'll get my coat.
144wittonlane
Haven't Bradford got the best record in penalty shoot outs of any club in English Pro football? Won there last 9 shoot outs I heard!!!
Adam Deuce
Oxfordspur are you a secret Villa fan?
GibboVilla
Thats to be expected from the neutral OxfordSpur we hold nothing against you... TVR I went with 4-1 n Nzogbia to score first 75/1... Winning this game and getting a result against NEwcastle could finally be a genuine turning point sprinkler in one or two last ditch super signings and we will fly up the table one hopes, one DREAMS!
CDX_EIRE
tvrwhitey I don't think the away goal rule stands in this comp. It never used to anyway.
AstonThriller
So if it's 4-2 to the Villa after 90 mins it goes to extra time, Right ? And i'm guessing the bookies only pay out on that result after 90 mins - not extra time ?
tvrwhitey
Putting being a Villa fan to one side, I disagree OxfordSpur (if by 'lemon' you mean it'll be a damp squibb). It may be an absolute roof-raiser. Great publicity, the TV and papers would completely go to town on it. You'd get special articles and TV magazine shows. If two mid-table PL teams get there, it'll come and go unnoticed.
144wittonlane
The away goal rule does stand, but only after extra time. If its 3-1,aet (after extra time) then and only then will it go to penalties. Any other score 2-0 Villa win, aet, on having scored an away goal. 4-2 to Villa and Bradford go through, aet, having scored more away goals.
kojak
8 - 0 to the Villa. Bent to score a hat trick off the bench.
malacaxeta
Good luck tonight Villains. Think your strikers will have a field day now that they have begun scoring.
SFC Forever
we r missing another player cheap as well Moussa Sissoko. Newcastle are out there buying players and us nothing!
ShaneBlack
Good luck Villa let's go and smash them like we should and show our status for once. My prediction is 3-0. No penalties please as I couldn't take that.
holte ender 1969
Looks like 3-0 was a bit optimistic holte ender 1969. Perhaps 3-1.... to Bradford City?
VillaWillRiseAgain
How PL must rue icing Bent this season. DB9 should tell Lambert to stick the subs bench up his arse.
VillaWillRiseAgain
444 you may well be the only person on the planet more clueless than Lambert.
