I have to say I'm not confident of Liverpool winning either and Villa look full of confidence just now. I don't know if Sherwood will tinker with his side to guarantee freshness for the relegation battle, which would help the Reds out, but I don't think he'll play about with his squad too much and will want to put a mark down as a manager who potentially wins the FA Cup. Therefore, I think Villa will edge it in injury time, and I hope to Buddha I'm wrong!

Villa 2 - 1 Liverpool AET

Is Sherwood likely to make changes and rest players for the important league games they have left?

Personally I think he'll go for it, and I've just read that Sturridge is doubtful (which means he'll either not be playing or only get the last 30 minutes) so this is in Villa's hands here.

I personally don't see Villa resting players.They are playing relatively well at the moment. Sherwood would want keep the momentum.

I'm sure you can enlighten me with your measured and reasoned explanation, and clarify why I am so apparently idiotic on my stance on this match? Please do share your cerebral power with us all so we can all bathe in its magnificence...

Please don't type like that ever again.

Isn't it though? They are in form, Liverpool are not and are lacking confidence. They also have injuries and suspensions galore; Villa are the in-form team out of both currently and are the favourites.

Wait a minute - Saltire reckons Villa are favourites to progress ahead of Liverpool, yet the bookies are saying the opposite. Are you suggesting that Saltire doesn't have a brain, or is it the companies whose job it is to compile these odds in an unbiased and objective way that are the brainless ones?

Just checking...

Get your house on Villa to win, the bookies have it so wrong this time. You'll be sorry if you don't and come Sunday night I'll look like a genius yet again. :hypo:

Like you did when I said playing Liverpool would be our easiest three points of the season?

Liverpool were also our easiest six points of the season :2thumb:

I didn't think it'd get any easier than the QPR game but good old Liverpool delivered.

We ain't going to win this. I hold out hope though. It's about time we won the fucking thing, won it 7 times, but the last time was 58 years ago!

I'm confident my workload will clear up this afternoon to be honest, but Gerrard starting isn't great. Could force me to work overtime all week.

Imagine how unbearable Tim "59% win ratio" Sherwood would be in the lead up to the final. On the other hand, I'm not sure if I could bear the flood of tributes to Stevie G either.

Arsenal v Liverpool would be a decent game though and it would be amusing to see him fuck up again, so the lesser of two evils I guess.

Villa need to get a hold on this game or they are gonna concede a load quickly.

I fucking hate Liverpool. They've shattered us now too, after being the better team for half hour, we've gone behind.

Great goal. Total football which is the hallmark of any Sherwood side.

Villa the much better team going into the second half, shame they conceded such an avoidable goal.
