Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to drawing Blackpool in the FA Cup third round

Aston Villa fans took to Twitter to react to the news of their team drawing Blackpool in the third round of the FA Cup.

Aston Villa have been drawn at home to Blackpool in the FA Cup third round, with the tie set to be played during the weekend of January 3 and 4.

Blackpool sit bottom of the Championship at present having won just twice all season, with their latest victory coming against Villa’s main rivals Birmingham City this past weekend.

Nevertheless, Villa have recent history of being dumped out of the competition by lower league opposition, having suffered a 2-1 home defeat to then-League One struggles Sheffield United in last season’s third round.

In Paul Lambert’s previous campaign in charge, the Claret and Blues managed to make it past the first hurdle with a 2-1 win over Ipswich Town at Villa Park, but then went out in the fourth round after a 2-1 loss at Milwall.

Fans of the West Midlands outfit are therefore exercising caution ahead of the tie, with the following being a few of the reactions to the news of the draw.
