Villa were poor over both games, when compared to their March and April form. However, a lot of that was due to West Brom's setup, which was perfect from a defensive perspective.
Decisions for Smith ahead of the final. Hourihane or Whelan? Adomah, Green or Kodjia? The second decision doesn't seem to have any good option right now.

Berardi lost his head there.

Richard Keogh was outstanding. Thoroughly entertaining game.

Play off final between 5th v 6th. Finishing 3rd and 4th wasn't much use this season in the championship.

I'll not complain.  It was between 3rd and 4th last season with 3rd going up.

Enjoyed that game last night.  Both teams went for it and I expect the final to be something similar. Jansson could have made a big difference for Leeds I feel.  Roofe too of course. 

Villa beat Derby quite easily twice in the league but this game will be a completely different.

I must say though too that I thought Dallas was absolutely superb all night.

Yehoo! Where's that Premier League thread  ;D

I had been quietly confident about this match all week but I tried to keep a lid on it. The last 15 mins was horrific to sit through as a Villa fan. Overall I thought they deserved it. McGinn was outstanding again. He covers every blade.

Derby will do well to keep the standard of loans again next season.

Breaks my heart to say it but the Vile deserved that all day long. Derby offered nothing until the last 15 and even then I couldn't see them getting anything out of that game
Lampard has an awful long way to go to prove himself as a manager.
On another note; I'm glad to see the back of the Vile,  the derby's were just getting too toxic. Hopefully you'll be relegated and we'll be promoted next term.  ;)
KRO.

Nassef Sawiris, an Egyptian worth $7bn, and Wes Edens who also owns the Milwaukee Bucks. They’ll have money to spend for sure. Doesn’t guarantee anything though as Fulham proved.

So it's not an urban myth.  William Windsor does support Villa.
I have more respect for a man
that says what he means and

Id say they will spend a bit of money ok.  They'll look to tie down a few of the loans first.  Mings, El Ghazi, Abraham and possibly Tuanzebe, although I think Utd might want him back. Chelsea may look to keep Abraham with their transfer ban but I doubt it.

Too many signings can also be a problem so it's about balance.

I think that was old footage from a Polo match.

No the bollix really does along with David Cameron, George Osborne, Nigel Kennedy and a host of other Eton educated chinless parasites.
Oh, and not forgetting the man who made such a brilliant and natural performance of Forrest Gump.
Yep, all-in-all a great addition to the PL and no loss at all to the Championship..
