    So we made it. I think we deserve our spot in the biggest domestic cup game in world football and this game certainly deserves its own thread! Win or lose, just getting there means so much to anyone associated with the club.

    City can definitely be got at so I don't think we go into it as complete outsiders but a lot of it will depend on what state they are in mentally and physically. To be in with a good chance of winning the quadruple at this stage is simply phenomenal, I just hope this game is one too many for them.

    I'm guessing we get around 28k tickets each for this with prices over a £100 for the £65 semi final equivalents (ouch). Really hope we get the west side again.

    Was going to say I can't wait but I'd be lying. More than happy to savour every moment up until then!

    Obviously want to win but as you say, just being in the final is good enough for me. An amazing feat given where we were a few years ago.

    To all those who said the Pozzo's would fail, and remove the identity of our club...

    :salute:

    I have had a season ticket for 2 decades and obviously in the premier league the away cap is £30, so paying £70 felt a lot for the semi. Paying £115 is a f***in joke. I get its a prestige event and you end paying similarly obscene prices for gigs etc but this is football. Fans have been spending money all year, been fleeced in the semis only to be further ripped off in the final.

    I'd pay silly money to watch us in the final but that really isn't the point.

    No wonder the Man City fans didn't bother with the semi final..

    How much did the tickets for the League Cup final cost?

    Trouble is people will pay the silly prices and the FA will get their money so be happy and won't do anything about it.
