“ Congratulations from Villa Fan “

Postby AV3 » Sun May 06, 2018 4:39 pm

Well done boys - You absolutely deserve 2nd place for the consistency that you have shown throughout the season.

Your 5 game winning start saw you out of the blocks and in pole position and you maintained a consistency throughout, other than that 4 game blip over xmas.

I felt your recent 8 game winning run was the clincher and you were able to fight off an amazing run from Fulham to keep hold of second spot, despite not being at your best.

In the end your nerves held and you were able to bounce back from the defeats to Wolves and ourselves to push yourselves over the line.

Enjoy it while it lasts. I know from experience, the next one could be some time in coming round.

good of you to come on here cos you have had some stick off a few, cheers and good luck in the play offs, we all know villa are too big for the championship, middlesboro will be the hardest team in my opinion, derby are hit and miss and fulham have never one a play off game in their history

The stick doesn't bother me mate - It was mainly from numptys who you would ignore in real life. If we didn't make 2nd, I'm pleased that it was you, even if I'd rather have avoided Fulham in the play offs.

Villa - Boro is too close to call, as would be a final between any two of the four.

I'm not overly bothered at the moment as I've enjoyed the past 2 seasons in the championship. I like Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday and like the fact that anyone can beat anyone on the day. Needless to say my feelings will change as the play off games approach. I'm actually in Spain next weekend so will have to settle for a bar somewhere for the 1st leg.

Thanks chap you have been a good poster.

As mentioned above you took some stick,specially the "Mind the Gap" period. That was sung more out of relief than anything. Good luck in the playoffs I don't envy you.

Always great to hear honest and descent response from fellow supporters.

Hope you do well in the play offs

Thank you, AV3. It is indeed a rare thing these days for a person to be gracious when disappointed.

This season City did it against all the odds. Financially (cost of squad and wages) we should have finished about 15th. On top of that there have been some awful decisions from officials but we had energy, guts and an indomitable spirit to keep coming back.

I'd be surprised if the P/O Final was not Villa v Fulham, so then, once more it would be in your own hands. In these days of bland stadia, Villa Park has always struck me as a proper football ground that deserves to be in the top flight.

Best wishes for the Play-off.

Cheers AV3. Much appreciated!
Good luck in the play offs, but if you don’t make it this season, it’s only a matter of time when you do make it back to the Prem. There ain’t many bigger clubs than Villa!

Thank you, but I'm sure you'd forgive us for being grateful to your rivals for a while

If Gary Monk ever wants a beer in Cardiff he just has to give me a call !

Good luck in the play offs.

I actually have a soft spot for Boro- but after their cheating I definitely want Derby to fail and as for Fulham - well they've spent the last 6 weeks telling us how much more deserving of promotion they are so bollox to them too.

Would be happy to see you join us.

Too right, at least villa haven’t suffered the psychological scars of the play offs, Fulham and derby have. The winner will come from villa v boro I reckon. Good luck :thumbup:

Cheers from for that, I agree we deserved it, we’ve had some tough treatment from the referees and no support from the media, but we battled through regardless.

I feel Fulham really deserve to win the playoffs, but that Pulis will probably win them with Boro, but time will tell. Enjoy them anyway, i’m So glad we’re not in them :laughing6:

I agree entirely. Fulham are 13 points ahead of Derby yet they both have the same chance in a 2 legged play off semi final.

I'm old school and I grew up with 2 up, 2 down. This play of nonsense makes a mockery of a 46 game league season. I'd be fuming in Fulham's position but I'm grateful in our position

Well it would be something Cardiff weren't able to do I guess.
