Cairney struck midway through the first half in a fierce-tempered occasion on Saturday, with the Cottagers having to see through the final 20 minutes with 10 men following Denis Odoi's dismissal.

Redundancies for key staff and cost cutting are now likely to be on the agenda at Villa after their Wembley failure, while Fulham can fund the rebuilding of their Craven Cottage home with the cash that will roll in from their Premier League elevation.

Allowing James Chester to be sold to Aston Villa truly came back to haunt the Boro boss, as the Welsh global delivered Pulis a dramatic reminder of his abilities and cost the Teesiders a spot at Wembley.

Villa fan Prince William was among the 85,243 in attendance on a baking Wembley day, where intensity from the stands translated onto the pitch.

"In my eyes, over the past two seasons, we've been the best team in this league".

It came pretty much against the run of play, with Villa now needing to pick up the pieces and stage a comeback. Aged 37, even if he remains with them and they secure promotion in 12 months' time, a further year at the highest level will by then most likely be beyond him. My knee still hurts not, but my manager said he needed me so I just played.

Sessegnon headed over before the break as Villa's defence struggled, but Bruce's men started the second half on the front foot as Hourihane charge down a Fredericks clearance to get the claret and blue hordes on their feet.

It was clear from the outset that Villa's No 10 was the one that Fulham's players were most anxious about as he was on the receiving end of some harsh treatment from those in white shirts. We did in the second half.

Angelica Moresco was all-square in her match and Lakareber Abe was only 1-down when the match play contest ended. Arizona becomes the fourth different Pac-12 program to win the national championship in the past four seasons.

Bruce has performed well enough in the job to be given the opportunity to take Villa up next season but with an ageing squad, a summer rebuild is perhaps required to make that final leap.

"If you don't make them exhausted, it will be easy for them", said Jokanovic of Villa's experienced defensive pairing.

So, about the Championship Play-Off final half-time "entertainment". I'm so exhausted right now I don't feel my legs "We are really happy and proud".
