One Aston Villa fan was so confident his team would win the FA Cup that he went ahead and got a tattoo prior to yesterday's final with the words: "AVFC FA CUP WINNERS 2014/15".
Unfortunately for the impatient fan of the claret and blues, things didn't go as planned.
Aston Villa were completely dominated by Arsenal during the final act of the domestic season, eventually losing 4-0 at Wembley. Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez, Per Mertesacker and Olivier Giroud got the goals, with Tim Sherwood's side having no answers to the impressive display from the Gunners.
The result left Aston Villa fans deflated and, in the case of the tattooed supporter, in desperate need of the number of a tattoo removal clinic.
One cheeky person on Twitter pointed out that the tattoo could be easily rectified without the need to remove it all.
In contrast to Aston Villa and their fans, today Arsenal have been celebrating their victory with an open-top bus parade.
