Martin O’Neill warmed up for Wembley by challenging his players to write a new chapter in the club’s famous history.

He says if they can beat Manchester United to lift the Carling Cup, their pictures will join other images of great Villa teams which adorn the walls of Villa Park and the training ground in years to come.

MON said: ‘Winning a trophy is the ultimate. There is no getting away from that and it would be fantastic. We have a lot of pictures of the old teams around the training ground and why not? It is something to aspire to.

‘I have often said to keep the pictures up on the walls of the 1981 league-winning side and 1982 European Cup-winning side. The early 1980s was a fantastic spell for Villa.

‘The history of the club is there to see, a great tradition, so we'd like to try and do something about it. That is really what the team is there for.’

Villa last won a trophy – also the league cup – in the mid-1990s. They go into Sunday’s final still in with a chance of winning both domestic cups this season.
