Losing the Championship play off final never goes away either. Since we lost that game (10 years ago :shock: ) every year they show that damn Windass goal. Even on Pointless today the answer to a question was Dean strawberry floating Windass. :x

I know! I still have nightmares about it. ;)

It was a great day out, it was just the football that ruined it. :lol:

I'm more sad because this team is going to completely disappear now. Loanees willl all go back to their clubs, Terry will leave and we'll probably be forced to sell Grealish and Chester because of FFP.

Hard luck Villa fans. :( Losing the playoffs is horrible, hope you get up next year. Villa should be a premier league club really.

For us it's Mickey Gray's missed penalty in that Charlton game. That game. :dread:

His son is one of the dumbest people alive today. Honestly, follow Josh Windass on twitter for some absolute highlights.

Quite a few friends are Fulham fans so I was at Wembley. First half was very one sided but Villa dominated the second, unlucky not to score. Fair play to the Villa fans, they stayed in good voice even in the first half when they touched the ball about three times. Great atmosphere in general!

Still here lads. Off to drink bleach though. Brb.

Fabian Delph is a banana split.

Great to see Fulham back in the PL, I've a real soft spot for them. Hopefully Villa don't make the top 6 next year.

Unlucky Villa boys.

Fulham might have a chance of retaining Cairney and Sessegnon next season now they're in the PL.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I know it's probably the emotion talking, but you do not get rid of a manager that guides you to 4th place and the Championship playoff final.

I still have nightmares about the Sunderland - Charlton play off final in 1998.

Nothing good comes from Steve Bruce. He sold Darren strawberry floating Bent, the best striker we'd had since Phillips.

Bent handed in a transfer request and I remember reading he wanted to move back to the Midlands at the time. Not sure how you can hold that one against Bruce.

Yeah and you also got a hell of a lot of money for him (relatively speaking, at the time).

KingK :lol: you horrible bastard!

Got to fear for Villa now. Next season will be a real test.

Yesterday was one of the greatest days I've had. Villa and Liverpool both losing has put a huge smile on my face that'll be there for a long time
