FA Youth Cup -hat's off and humble pie!

I am dishing up a large slice of humble pie as I type, since it would appear that contrary to my predictions, the club have already sold 30,000 tickets to tomorrow night's FA Youth Cup match. So where only two thirds of the lower tier was open for the game against Cardiff in the last round, it looks as if the entire stadium will be occupied tomorrow night.

I also wouldn't be surprised if there are more at our ground than the nuber of fans joining me up at Villa Park and when you consider that we are supposedly on the floor at the minute, this is some achievement, especially in light of the fact that apparently there were under a thousand at Old Trafford to watch Man Utd in the last round

Now all we need is a win to ensure a place in the final, which will undoubtedly be a memorable occasion, as if there are over 30,000 for the semi on the same night as the first XI are playing, heaven knows how many would turn up for the final

Big Love

I think it has something to do with Arsenal V Man U for the large crowds.

These kids are good, they have only lost once this season and hopefully we can keep that up tomorrow.

It all depends who we get in the final, if it is Liverpool then yes there will be a big gate, Newcastle perhaps not.

Interesting that three of the big four have their youth in the youth cup, Chelsea are missing.

That is incredible. It is just another reminder as if we needed one of what Lord Wenger has done to our club. Amazing. Bearing in mind that 'Big Club' Spurs had less that that at home in the F.A Cup this season against a team near the top of the Championship.
