Attention Villa fans, please dont laugh but i booked a cheap flight weeks ago to
wembley for the final, cork to stansted 6.25 am but return flight is stansted to
dublin 10pm, the flights cost in total 42 eu, if any of yee are looking to go id sell the flights i know there will be a name change fee as well but it would still work cheaper than booking direct now,

Everyone blaming the keeper but turns out it was Jimmy's fault all along - booking his flights in advance. Rule no 1 - "never tempt fate".

Was hoping Leeds would do it - nothing against Derby really but few friends and father in law big into LUFC. Couple of them were going to head over - they were going to book the flights today!!!

Poor old Super Billy - hope he's ok. Tough few weeks for him.

It was a chance i was prepared to take, 42 eu wont break me, but if i waited for today it would have been a hell of a lot more, thems the breaks

That's exactly what I'd heard too. His teams start the season like a train and end like a car with a wonky wheel.

Energy levels werent a problem , it was more a combination of individual errors,
injuries and truth be told a few mistakes by Bielsa last night, We had Daniel James from swansea in leeds january 31st he had a medical, and was set to sign but swansea pulled the plug at last minute, that cost us big time,
