* The sixth FA Cup match Aston Villa played in the 1999/2000 season was the FA Cup final. In 1954/55 Villa played 7 FA Cup matches - and didn't get past the 4th Round! Their FA Cup 4th Round tie against Doncaster proved to be a bit of a saga - the second replay was played at Maine Road, Manchester City FC; the third replay at Hillsborough, Sheffield Wednesday FC and the 4th replay at the Hawthorns, West Bromwich Albion FC. The match at Hillsborough was abandoned at the end of 90 minutes - extra time would normally have been played - because of bad light. So that was 5 matches, eight and a half hours play in front of 103,439 fans - and one defeat!
