United only won a few tin pots because they had more money than anyone else, you got a cheek moaning about our self funded team :8_laughing:

I’d swap this for survival such is the sorry state of our game. 

If we win great I’ll be over the moon. 

If we lose at least I’ll watch City in league 1 in 2 years time

Yeah, you've got to laugh haven't you. United buy three European Cups and countless league titles and that's ok. City do it for ten years and we are the evil team, eat hearts for breakfast, drop fleas on cats and hide the spot on, etc.

Couldn't agree more, welcome to the forum :hh:  ..you sound like me, are you me? :8_laughing: did i accidentally make a 2nd account :ph34r:

I think that this final is just going to be a question about how many goals Man City will score in their win. 

Lets not also compare Villa with Wigan a few years ago, Wigan were actually in excellent form when they shocked Man City in that final. With all due respect to Villa, their form has not been good at all recently and they have some clear weaknesses in their team, which City are bound to exploit.

Would love to see Villa win this even though it would fuck our European chances over. Man City are vile.

Can't see it though.

We don’t beat top 6 sides, we will compete for 50-60mins then a mistake will lead to a goal and then we’ll fade away.

Apparently that shouldn't have been a corner but that's game over already. Could be another 6-0 this.

There was still a lot of defending to do so villa can only blame it so much. Isn't gonna matter city are gonna win about 6.0

You didn't even do that, it took all of 20 minutes for City to open the scoring. They went 2-0 up after half an hour of the game. 

There could be a few more too from City in the 2nd half if they continue to attack.

Hahaha John fucking Stones. I was going to post before there's always hope for Villa as long as Stones is playing but I'm still too angry about our game to make jokes.

Stones has a lot of talent but fuck me he has a lot of mistakes in him. Think his City career will be over in the Summer surely?

Good tackle. 
 

Villa need to fuck off sitting back and just go for it. It’s a cup final, does it matter if you lose 1-3 instead of 1-2? 
 

Get in their faces, they don’t like that.

An 'ok' final. It was always interesting at 2-1, but City didn't ever seem against the ropes for me.

Highlight of the game for me was watching Phil Foden. Great performance. You can tell how much he has learnt from watching David Silva.

Great touch, his weight of pass was delicate, always looks busy on the ball and rarely gave it away.

He would be ideal in that midfield 3 for England and on that showing, he's got to go to the Euro's.
