The Gudgeons family in Cleethorpes has just sent us this picture:
"Good luck to the Bantams from the Gudgeons family in Cleethorpes! Wembley here we come. Phil Parkinson's Bradford army!"
Ian Coyle has emailed about his friend Christian Pedder, who's flying over from Australia for the final:
"I think it's worth a mention that my best friend Christian Pedder, a life-long City fan who emigrated to Australia six years ago, has paid $1800 dollars for a flight home to watch his beloved team (following approval from the boss - his wife Gillian Pedder).
"He has always kept close tabs on his local team since leaving and supporting them over the past 26 years and has travelled near and far to support the boys."
Love this. Sir Titus Salt... http://t.co/0jk0YmPL— @bantamsbanter 18 February 2013

Just thought I'd share this fun picture taken by The Co-operative when their big shirt stopped at the Kirkgate Centre last week. Just when you thought you'd seen everything, here's James Hanson and Zavon Hines posing next to a giant banana....
@HannahP_TandA big shout for the ticket office! 30k + tickets and most are sorted. They have made a lot of happy Bantams! #bcafc— @BensBigTrip 18 February 2013

David Elliot has just emailed in this picture, saying: "Shipley boys, ready and able, counting down the days."
Last week Oakenshaw Preschool in Bradford held its own Bantams-themed day. The children wore Bradford City kits, made claret and amber flags and held a football tournament with goal practice.
Eric Aired, owner of Oakenshaw Auto Centre, is a massive Bradford City fan. When he found out they were going to Wembley he rushed out to buy a claret coloured car so he could sticker it up to show his support!
Have you done up your car for the occasion? Send in your pictures!
Can't wait till I'm on that train to London on Friday! #bcafc— @Jamesbcfc12 18 February 2013
Phil from Sydney, Australia, has left this comment on the T&A website.
"I too am a long standing City fan now aged 52. My first game was Notts County at home in 1966 aged six.
"I made the trip over in '96 when we played in the play-off final - something I will never forget! Timing is just not good for me to attend the final against Swansea - I've just had eight weeks leave and enjoyed all City's games on the TV in Australia and Canada.
"I wish everyone a fantastic day out at Wembley and I will be watching the game in the early hours with about 20 mates who are all now 100 per cent behind City (even a couple of Arsenal supporters!).
"Gutted I can't make it but still, City 'til I die. City - the world wants you to WIN!"

Who's ready for Wembley then? #bcafc #scfc #swans— @Jamesbcfc12 18 February 2013
So excited for London this weekend! 🇬🇧⚽ #wembley #bcafc— @_sophielouise 18 February 2013
Jason Knight has just emailed in this picture of his T&A 'City @ Wembley' car sticker in his car in Christchurch, New Zealand.
He said: "My gran back in Bradford sent me a City car sticker and I could not be more pleased to fly the flag for the boys going to Wembley from here in New Zealand!
"I will be getting up early, at 4am on February 25 NZ time, to watch the game live."
Just asked the magic 8 ball if #bcafc will win at Wembley, it said prospects good 😃 #magic8alwaysright #bcafc— @ChrisHilton83 18 February 2013
Spoke to Gary Jones yest for interview later in week. Me: Have you dreamed about lifting cup? GJ: Every single night since Villa! #bcafc— @ParkerTandA 17 February 2013
Bradford Bulls' owner Omar Khan and Bradford South MP Gerry Sutcliffe were among those signing their well-wishes on a giant Bantams' shirt, produced by The Co-operative, at the Kirkgate Centre last week. It also stopped at the T&A offices on Friday. Have you signed it yet?
Just received an email from far-away Bantam Anthony Benson, who is flying in for the final from Auckland in New Zealand.
He says: "I'm over for seven days, and, as I read my emails, it occurs to me that half of Bradford will be in London that weekend.
"I have plenty of friends going to the game and I think this will be one of the few times we've all been back together at the same time.
"City certainly provide the focal point.
"I've got 42 people to see in seven days, it's going to be one 'elluva time!"
So it appears the T&A 'City @ Wembley' car sticker has gone global. Philip Ideson, who is flying back for the final, has got his on display in his car in Orange County, California. Any more out there around the world?
T&A Wembley sticker finally arrived and on display is California #bcafc http://t.co/1It52Lv6— @pideson 14 February 2013

With six days to go, cup fever is sweeping across the city - and we want to know what you're doing as you prepare for the showpiece Wembley clash on Sunday.
Are you a business bedecked in claret and amber? Have you done anything special to celebrate Bantams' cup heroics? How are you feeling about the final?
