With Aston Villa fans sobering up on a Bank Holiday Monday knowing we will spend at least one more year in the Championship and the second tier of English football following the 1-0 defeat to Fulham at Wembley at the weekend, some players were quick to join the clubs’ messages of thanks for the backing they have received all season long, let alone at Wembley.

Whatever the talking points from the game, the referee, penalty shouts and red cards not going our way, it was a poor performance and if the EFL didn’t want their share of a bigger financial pie, Fulham would’ve rightly gained promotion this year anyway for their third-placed finish.

At the end of 90 minutes they deserved the win and despite second-half improvements, we didn’t.

With fans holding their own chats about the future, the club, players and the odd notable or two, offered the following in the aftermath of the result.

With Financial Fair Play set to be a huge topic of interest moving forward this summer, plenty will focus in on Dr Tony Xia’s words given the possible break up of the squad now, but others reacted in their own way – including the potential those messages were goodbyes from some.

Grealish’s future is in doubt given his performances this year and links already to Leicester City. Terry’s option was dependent on promotion and the next week will see plenty of speculation rise to the surface, whether it’s based in fact or not.
