It won't happen, but I'd love it (love it!) if we just played our strongest side and put as many past them as we could.

5-1 would be nice, seeing as the date of the game is close to the anniversary of another one against them.  (or better still 7-1 or 8-1, as I remember we should have added at least a couple to our first half total after the break).

29k sold. Southampton and Norwich games both sold out. Just shows how wrong the club have got this game.

I'm sure the two other games being so close has affected the attendance for the LC game, but the pricing is just wrong.

I'm not going.

Mixture of price, having lots of other nights out this time of year, uninspiring opposition of the Liverpool Paper Boys XI, general apathy around it.

They're probably still better than Bradford, Leyton Orient, Peterborough, Doncaster or Small Heath, among other minnows we have somehow managed to get knocked out by in the last few years. We should get through but I wouldn't want to take too many liberties. Pick a strongish side and don't give them any encouragement whatsoever please, Villa.

In terms of quality relative to their absolute first choice 11, it will be very similar to what Wolves put out v us. We maybe made harder work of that than we should but once we got to 2-1 Wolves barely created anything as their 16 and 17 year olds tired after an hour which is always a problem for young sides when they play an experienced team in a cup competition.

We should be winning this no excuses even if we don't go totally full strength.

Agree 100%, got some woolly backs at work so the thought of losing to the Red Scouse kids is unbearable.

Just had a look. They were selling a limited number of tickets, today. Limited to four per qualifying person, which suggests thereís no great clamour for them. It also doesnít count on their fans away histories.

Yeah. Losing to Liverpool's under-12's would be peak 2010s Villa.

It does make me kind of nervous. Lads with no fear and bags of energy, plus the chance to impress the manager, who'll no doubt be watching on the box

Hmm so I think they have realised that the pricing was wrong and season ticket holders can buy a ticket for £20.  Those who have already brought a ticket at a higher price will get a £10 refreshment voucher in the post.

Yep - me too.  They obviously thought they would easily sell the seats unclaimed by ST holders and any other seats too.  Clearly this uptake has failed to materialise so their petty money-grab by charging us more than the away fans has backfired on them and they're now desperately trying to reclaim the situation.  It was also interesting to see them, in the text of the email, not-so-subtley trying to lay the blame at Liverpool's door rather than acknowledging their own petty plan had backfired on them:

The decision to modify prices for Season Ticket Holders comes after Liverpool FC have made clear their intentions in the competition.
