Tim Sherwood and his Aston Villa team may have been left hugely disappointed by their FA Cup final loss to Arsenal, but spare a thought for one Villa fan who lost a whole lot more besides.
The Midlands side couldn't prevent Arsene Wenger's Gunners making it back-to-back success at Wembley with a 4-0 rout of the struggling Premier League side.
While few outside the club's loyal supporters backed Villa to triumph on Saturday, so convinced was one supporter of a win that he put his house and life savings on a cup upset.
Journalist David Blackmore tweeted of his encounter with the fan before kick-off, who decided to back his team to the hilt after an encounter with a psychic.
Just met an Aston Villa fan on the Tube. He was told by a psychic to put his home and life savings on his team winning. He has. Unbelievable— David Blackmore (@DavidBlackm0re) May 29, 2015
