The end of the First World War until Albion last won the F.A. Cup,
Or..

That's obviously the correct answer, but I find it a tad depressing on more than one level.

It is a bit sobering to think that Villa, Wolves, and even Blues and Coventry have all won a trophy, or trophies, since we last made a final. You wouldn't have seen that coming when we were in four between 1966 and 1970.

Sods law I was born a couple or so weeks after our last major final. 1970 League Cup. 50 years ago. For a club with such a proud history and full of trophy wins, to have not won one in 52 years (unless you count winning the Championship in 2008) is shocking.

Yet posters on here would prefer 17th in the Prem year after year than a cup final and maybe a trophy. Bonkers

Galling that a truly shit Villa side, as poor as us in the yo-yo years, even have another final. Last one we were in I wasn’t old enough for school, and now I’ve a grey beard and have an old man yells at cloud cartoon put in most of my posts as I get nostalgic!

And I’m watching a Tears for Fears documentary on BBC4 about an album that is 35 years old!
