      We will be heavy underdogs in the match at Villa. It is a great experience for our young players but it will be very difficult for them to advance.


      Great experience for the lads, pull this off and it will be similar to the youngish group that went to Spurs and won on pens I think in Rafa's first season.

      The fringe players could play safe at villa a eek out a draw.
      Is it replays, extra time and pens, or straight to pens.
      I haven’t a clue. Hopefully a replay so we can batter them proper later on 😁

      No replays anymore in League Cup, game is decided on the night.

      Believe it is straight to pens as with the Arsenal match.

      That's actually not a bad idea, play super defensive with a little bit of counter attack, and rely on set pieces or if necessary take the game to penalties, its the only chance we have of progressing because surely Villa will play their A-team or certainly very close to it.

      The young guys picked to travel deserve it, amazing experience for them.

      Mixture of u18s and rest of u23s squad for Villa.

      Brewster, Elliot, Jones and Williams play a part at Villa and then flying out for this maybe?

      I think somebody posted earlier that the squad had to be in Qatar a few days before so that's a non starter.

      In any case, if they were going to get a game it would have been in the semi-final anyway.

      Starting lineup for Villa is something like:

      Kelleher
      Gallacher, Hoever, Van den Berg, Larouci
      Chirivella, Christie-Davies, Dixon-Bonner
      Kane, Longstaff, Hill

      also in contention: Clarkson, Stewart,

      and Swab's ballboys.

      We're going out.  :(

      On the face of it 1/2 looks generous for a Villa win.If I was a Villa fan I'd be insulted. I mean we are putting out a team that hardly has a premier game under their belt against a side that needs cup success to define their season.Probably 1/4 with us 12/1.

      I mean I'd never put money on us to lose but those odds will bring in the neutrals and Villa fans.Lets hope we can cost them.

      Think the plan is to fly the quartet out after the Villa game which makes sense as they wont figure much in any of the two games

      Has that been reported? I get the logic, but I also read somewhere (This is Anfield?) that anyone in the squad had to be there from the Monday - don't know if that is true either.

      Of course it also is possible that Jürgen will make 11 changes from the semifinal to the final as there should be a major gap in quality of our opponents. In that case of course those four will be needed for the semifinal and unavailable for the League Cup.

      Hopefully the four get a first team game, one way or another. They all did rather well last time.

      Not sure it’s wise taking Elliot, Jones, Williams etc. Would be shocked if they play any part over the 2 games. Makes much more sense for them to have stayed and got 90mins vs Villa.
