Balls, although at least I’ve got another Villa player to hate, that keeper was such a prick!

Shan has to walk after that. Just one of the worst bits of managing I’ve ever seen. You don’t play six defenders and two holding midfielders with 10 men and then play for penalties. It’s just beyond naive

Derby are the best bet for a semi-decent team getting promoted and they were dog shit in the first leg, oxf*rd me if we get a Leeds - Villa final.

I've been consoling my fact that if it is a Leeds v Villa final, one of them is going to have that horrible crushed feeling that we know so well!

Not particularly enthralled at the return to the Premier League of Derby, Leeds or Villa, but it would be Villa as the lesser of three evils. Keeping Leeds in the second tier is entertainment in itself, every single year.

Well we know Moore should never have gone but that was incredible. Mason Holgate as first taker!

Frank Lampard's Derby have to go and stink the gaff out tonight and win it on pens. It's our only hope of Villa not going up.

Quite. Commentary mentioned that the likes of absent Gayle, Rodriguez, Hal etc would normally take penalties, but it seemed hugely naive to put a 21 year old loanee first up.

As for the final, I'm not too bothered who gets there (although wouldn't mind Lamps succeeding in his first season), I just want want Villa, and Grealish and Terry, to lose at Wembley again.

That's the one reason why I don't want them going up. All season the media have been going on about how great he's done. He's taken them from 6th place and 75pts last season to the heady heights of, er, 6th place and 74pts.

+1

I actually feel a bit for Derby fans, they’ve been so close for so long now you could say they kind of deserve it. 7 top 10 finishes in a row and 4 out of the last 6 finished in the playoffs. Although the most overwhelming factor in wanting them to succeed is an incomprehensible thought of Villa or Leeds being promoted. Have a painful suspicion that Leeds will go up :cry:

Grealish is probably onto a winner anyway. He'll either get PL footie with Villa or he'll move to Spurs or somewhere in the summer as Villa will have to do something about their position under FFP rules.

If you think Jack Grealish is good enough to play for Tottenham Hotspur then you either have your head in the clouds, have been away on holiday for 6 years or are talking about their youth team.

Spurs seem to think so seeing as they reportedly bid £15m for him last summer.
