Half time: Aston Villa up against Blackburn in semi-final of League Cup

The match wasn´t all over after 23 minutes when James Milner created and scored, but that single goal was all that happened tonight in terms of goals and I don´t think you will find an unhappy Aston Villa fan.

You´ll find a few unhappy Blackburn Rovers fans, but not may judging by the empty seats, but the reasons for that are for a different post and a different day.

At the end of the day, to use a classic football pun, it is only half time, but we do have the advantage.

We should all be happy with the result, it is one step closer and for me, I think it is enough to see us through. Is it too early for me to book my tickets and are the club going to sort me out a couple of VIP tickets?
