Fa Cup Final: Aston Villa 0 Arsenal 4

Recommended Posts

Not many of the cheaper seats category - mainly the 2 higher price bands.

Didn't West Ham in claret and blue beat the arsenal in yellow at Wembley too .

The ST holders get the dearer seats then the remainder go on sale.

Will be an expensive weekend for some but I am sure nobody will mind too much.

Graham Taylor believes Tim Sherwood's natural enthusiasm has done wonders for Villa.

Taylor is an immensely respected figure in claret and blue history, having bossed the team to the First Division in 1987-88 and then to second place in the top-flight in 1989-90 before heading off to manager the England national team.

He still keeps an eye on claret and blue matters and has been heartened by the club's shoots of recovery in the Barclays Premier League under Sherwood - and the run to the FA Cup final.

Taylor, who crossed paths with youngster Sherwood when he was at Watford, is a fan of the effervescent gaffer - and thinks this bubbly personality has done the trick in B6.

He said: "Tim Sherwood has done very well.

"He was an apprentice at Watford when I was there. Then I left for Villa. He made his move to the likes of Blackburn and Tottenham.

"He was a committed player. He was always committed to the cause. He did very well.

"What Tim has brought to Villa as a manager is an enthusiasm.

"He is up and down on the touchline and giving it the fist pump. The crowd love it of course because they see their manager almost getting involved on the pitch.

"That has helped him and they have had some very good results."

Benteke

Taylor believes claret and blue heroes can emerge forever if Villa win the FA Cup - and the 70-year-old thinks there's no reason why they can't on May 30 when they face Arsenal.

He added: "Villa deserved the win over Liverpool.

"I believe there's no reason why Villa can't win the FA Cup final. It will be the same feeling for the Villa supporters.

"These are one-off games. They are nothing to do with your league position.

"This is Wembley, this is the FA Cup final, this is when you will go down in the club's history.

"Everyone will want this at Villa. It's an ending to the season that I don't think anyone would have envisaged.

"But it's not worth winning the FA Cup if you lose your place in the Premier League.

"I am sure Tim is getting that through to his players. I am sure he is saying - let's do both. Let's stay up and win the cup."

Anyone have any idea how many season ticket holders we have this year?

I read somewhere we have around 18,000 but I can't remember where though :/

Arsenal have 45,000 so it's much worse for there supporters

too right mate

because of the blackmarket and people jumping on the bandwagon

there will be quite a few villa at wembley on may 30 who havent been to a villa match for years

i feel sorry for the ones who were going down on a regular basis all those lean and dissapointing years under mcleish and lambert

then this season they had had enough or because of financial or family reasons they just didnt renew the season ticket or stopped going down altogether

and now they miss out on Villa in an FA cup final
