Manchester United : Hero McPartland calls on Villa to harness spirit of '57 to cause upset

05/30/2015 | 02:24am US/Eastern

ASTON Villa FA Cup hero Peter McParland has called on Villa to harness the spirit of 1957 and revealed then-coach Bill Moore had already planned their celebrations beforehand.

The 81-year-old scored twice in Villa's last FA Cup win 58 years ago when they beat Manchester United 2-1 at Wembley.

Faced with the Busby Babes Villa were underdogs but McParland said they believed they would win after trainer Moore, who aided boss Eric Houghton, outlined their plans for a postvictory photo opportunity.

Villa play Arsenal in the final at Wembley today and McParland, the last player to score for the club in the FA Cup final, senses a similar situation to 1957.

"Arsenal are going to be hot favourites and then Manchester United were hot favourites," he said.

"It's about Villa showing they can do things against Arsenal. "We were the same. We had the last team talk in the hotel and our trainer Bill Moore, who was way before his time, nominated two players - Stan Lynn and Peter Aldis - to get the captain (Johnny Dixon) on their shoulders with the Cup. That was a tradition then, the skipper being lifted up, and if you see the pictures Bill is in front with a big smile on his face so he had all that planned.

"He knew where he was going to be too."
