the pitch invasion was great,just what the Carling cup needed
Just wished we had a bit more entertainment and a few more goals, apart from that, a great night! I couldn't even start to do a match report on what went on, I'm still trying to catch my breath!
The Fear
OUTSTANDING GAME!! lets hope thats the end of the goal drought for the season now.
Why didn't Sidwell get a 10? He brought us some time when the grass fouled him!
I don't know what to say. Literally speechless. That was the kind of game that lives in the memory! Bring on the mancs!
Its 11:30 and I have just put my 6 and 8 year olds to bed. I can still here them chatting and laughing. They are never going to get up for school tomorrow. Fantastic game. At 0-2 I could not believe what was happening. My mate said we would win 3-2. What an idiot.
Dead Souls
Fantastic stuff!! Come on you lions!!

One of those games, that in years to come, we'll look back upon and say, 'Man was I glad that I was there that night'. What an atmosphere, what a result, what a night. Its games/results/nights like we've just witnessed, that make us fully realise and appreciate just why we love this great club of ours so much.
I'm still shaking!!! Awesome, truely awesome! They never make it easy for us fans but would we want it any other way?
congrats to all at villa,a night to remember, now lets do a 1994 and beat whichever mancs team turns up.

Que Serra Serra, whatever will be will be, we're going to Wembley... well you lot are anyway... I live in Australia :( I would make the trip but I'm skint as I'm getting married this year.... hang on... what if I combined the two?! I wonder what the centre circle at half time would cost...... Awesome match anyway the atmosphere looked immense from my sofa - wish I coulda been there too. Well done guys.
and AVFC New Zealand supporters witnessed a truly magnificent game whilst choking on our breakfasts too! Very nervous route but we made it all the same. Brilliant just brilliant.
holte ender 1969
if ANYONE votes for sidwell as MOTM, I WILL find you and I WILL take your kids..
sell him now and we'll use the money made to pay for my train to london..
ur backline got all 10s when blackburn scored 4? hahahahahaha
but good win and i hope u lot win the tournament
What a ridiculous game. My own personal highlight was my mazy run down the right wing on about 98 minutes, which ended in the goal mouth in front of the holte...

O - M - G
was wondering why no subs though - or is he going to play a complete reserve team at the weekend?
Did anyone else have that "we've blown it again" feeling when their second went in? And then!!!!!! That's what makes us different now. In times past we would have crumbled, but now we've got more bottle, more fight. And now, sing along everyone..."we're going to Wembley"
sorry I went into so much detail there chaps, I do ramble at times.
The Fear
Milner was special... love to see him play like that for England - all over the park.
Milner is going to be a real legend for us I think, just love him!
The Fear
I truely believe we are only a couple of players away from having a great team, i realise that can only be measured by success, but in the league for example we can go 4th again with our game in hand, at Wembley and good draw at the w/end in the FA Cup.

However O'Neil with his lack of using the players available does make me anxcious, but i'm not going to critisise until there is a reason to do so and as yet there isn't.

# Happy days are here again ... (and so on ...) #
benji - classic threat about the kids...absolutely made me laugh!!! WE WERE AWESOME!!!
Time to reflect after a few days away and a fantastic FA cup result against Brighton ..... but Please Please Please .... I REALLY HOPE MON plays Brad SENIOR in the FINAL .... against either Manc side they will have a party if Brad JUNIOR is in goal .... responsible for at least 2 of the goals tonight ..... HOWEVER I'm still FRILLED to bits we are in the Final and Drawn Wolves/Palace in the FA Cup... Now just the LITTLE task of beating the Arse on Wednesday eh ???
