Fingers crossed for Fulham. Play good football and all around likable club.

While I think Fulham are the best side of the four, I have a feeling that this may have deflated them, especially after their first loss in fuck knows how long.

I think Villa will go up.

Think Derby will do Fulham and we’ll engage in the most boring two legged spectacle you will ever see against Tony Pulis’s Boro.

I don't think I can handle Tony Pulis back in the Premier League. Hopefully they flunk it.

The playoffs are quite bland this year, nobody is standing out to root for but I'll cheer on Fulham as they've been out of the top flight the longest (and have a class ground).

I thought that was Derby (Fulham were relegated the same season as us in 2014).

I reckon it'll be Villa going up

Hoping Fulham because I think they deserve it. But I really feel like that Birmingham defeat may have a knock on effect for them now.

They absolutely dropped the ball against Reading in the playoffs this time last season when they were the stand out team and I've a horrible feeling they will trip up again.

If they do, then I hope Villa do it simply because that will be one less automatic promotion challenger next season. If Boro or Derby manage it, I'll be massively disappointed because neither are quite frankly good enough and I think we can at least compete with them next season if we improve in the right areas.

Derby lead 1-0 thanks to the cunt.

I know it's early, but this is why I'm over the moon that we made automatic. It really is a lottery.

Mainly due to how he left. Did great for us but basically became billy big bollocks afterwards thinking he was too good for us.

Weren't you struggling financially at the time? I remember we got Jobi McAnuff for that reason.

Not surprised Jerome scored, he's one of those players who sit between Premier League and Championship level. I remember a screamer he scored against us out of nowhere.

I still think Villa will go up and hope they do cos as @Lucas said you'd think they'd be dead certs for it next season.

We were but it wasn't quite as bad when Jerome left.

Villa lead at Boro!

Mile Jedinak glances in a header from their first corner of the game.

Was rooting against Villa purely for underdog reasons but seeing Middlesbrough waste so much time with these fucking awful long throws when they're 1-0 down at home has made me hope for them to get fucking battered.

Good result that. Still think Bruce will get found out, most likely by Fulham at Wembley 

Wouldn't bet on it, he's decent at this stage of the season. You should see off Boro now, I thought Fulham would take apart everyone but seem to be wobbling, stars are alignng for you I think.

He will, let’s not forget this side tore apart wolves then got 4 points from 15 and gave up on second. I’ve warcged is all season and a decent manager would have walked this league, at times it’s been dross and there’s no plan B. 

I’d like him removed before the Prem he’s Micky mouse up there

Fulham choking again. I expect Derby and Villa to be the final, which is good in the sense it's a local game but please don't let it be Derby for fuck sake.

Let's not write Fulham off yet. It's only 1-0. They definitely have it in them to smash Derby tonight.

They have the talent and dominated the 1st leg enough on Friday to suggest they have Derby's number, they just weren't clinical. If Mitrovic or Sessagnon get any of those chances, you'd bet on them to score.

Backed by a roaring home crowd on their tight pitch tonight, I reckon they might play like a wounded animal.

First goal will be massive.

Think Fulham should be ahead after that first half and unlucky not to be so.

Derby are very well organised though. Can only see the game being more open in Derby's favour now though as Fulham look to push on and score. Think Fulham will be annoyed they haven't scored early.

Sessesgnon scores to give Fulham the lead. 1-0 xD
