Pre-Match thread (Cup Final 14 of 38)

Recommended Posts

Could we really go to Old Trafford and come away with something? manure have improved slightly and at home are difficult to beat, but anything is possible.

Free hit. Let's smash the bastards! Win by three and go above them. 

We won't go above them because of goal difference. Unless we absolutely smash them

I don’t mind losing away at old Trafford but please please please don’t go 1-0 up and throw it away in the last 10 mins. I couldn’t live with the Utd wankfest that would ensue. Still have nightmares about that donkey Macheda...

I think we have a better midfield , its more of a mental battle I think hops the players treat it as any other game  , just like the newcastle game , dont show them any respect and dont allow them to play simply because they ar Man utd

Probably the easiest game of the next 3.

Will still be tough though. Front three of James, Rashford and Martial is terrifying

Win by 3 like he said and we will. Personally think that’s optimistic as they’ll get a late consolation and we will only win by 2.

When was the last time we did them at Old Trafford? Surely we are due!!!

December 2009 I believe with Gabby the goalscorer.

We have a chance of getting a result. Would feel 'meh' if we lost... happy with a point and positively predicting a slow-jostle in the shower if we win.

Yup this is me exactly, absolutely hate Man Utd with a passion. Hope we get three points, i don't care how.  i'd take a dodgy VAR decision right now and a 1-0 scrappy win.

If we won by three we'd go above them. Our GD is pretty good.

To quote villalad before the Newcastle game, I have a bad feeling about this one.

That Gabby goal win was one of the VERY few I can remember, and I've followed Villa for 50 years.

Since the preeeeeeeeeeeeeeemier league began the results got worse.

Against these nobs we are either horrendously shite or unlucky in the extreme. Would snatch ya hand off for a point.

I'm targeting a win here. These are shite.

If we sit back and let them try to break us down, we can easily win. If we try to go for it like Sheffield United, we could get done on the counter. Given that United are at home, the onus will be on them. I'm tempted to start Trezeguet for this one. Real selection headache for Dean with Conor and Anwar both playing really well.

Should beat these chumps. I’m predicting a Matt Targett left footer from the edge of the box, cracking in off the post a la Staunton in the 92/93 season.

0-1 Villa
