    Steve Bruce next season.

    We were in danger of doing a Sunderland when he came here last season, now we are in the play off final. If we lose Saturday and have to overhaul the squad because of FFP I'd still back Bruce as the most likely to have us pushing for promotion next season and if we go up I'd back him to at least establish us as a mid table PL club instead of the perennial relegation fighters we had become. Whatever happens Saturday I'll be disappointed if he does leave and a damn sight more concerned about next season than I would have been.

    Middlesbrough 0-1 Aston Villa

    That sets it up nicely for Tuesday, come on Villa you've done the hard bit.

    Matchday Programmes

    I buy one if I've driven up just for the game, if the match is part of one of my weekends in Brum I don't bother as I can't be arsed traipsing around pubs the rest of the night with it in my pocket. Be a shame to see another match day tradition bite the dust.

    Millwall 1-0 Aston Villa

    I'd rest as many as I thought I could get away with resting without getting into trouble with the FA, priority been players we can't replace and I think Pat's suggestions pretty much covered that with the addition maybe of Snodgrass and Adomah.

    Aston Villa 1-1 Derby

    Good to see Hutton back in time for the play offs.

    The Championship

    We'll have to be at our best in 3 games where we and our opponents are evenly matched.

    Aston Villa 1-1 Derby

    If I was having to stick money on it I'd back Cardiff but that Hull side with nothing to play for held us to a draw and stuck 5 past Bristol who have everything to play for. I'm expecting nothing, hoping for a lot but accept the fact that its 90% certain we'll not finish 2nd.

    Winson Green or Strangeways ?

    Aston Villa 1-1 Derby

    I don't think anyone is expecting 2nd but if we win our final two we aren't relying on a long sequence of results elsewhere to get it, a Fulham defeat at Blues who may need the points to stay up and Cardiff not winning either of their last two, they've failed to win 4 of the last 6.

    The Championship

    That's the outcome I favoured, keeps the pressure on Cardiff and leaves Fulham's GD within sight.

    The Championship

    Mixed feelings on this one Freddy, if Fulham lose the pressure is right off Cardiff and I'd rather face them in the play offs......1-0 to Fulham is my favoured result. A healthy victory over Derby tomorrow wouldn't go amiss to make the GD favour us but potentially that final day is going to have some twists and turns, there could be 3 of us fighting for 2nd against 2 teams fighting the drop and one trying to get into the play offs.

    Villa back safe standing

    Well I blame Bruce for that, we never used to score

    Villa back safe standing

    Can't be any worse than seating where we're up and down like a whores draws either watching the game or letting people in and out, I've nearly gone over the seat in front a couple of times at the back of the Holte where its so steep the seat in front is mid shin height.

    The Championship

    Hull v Cardiff looks like the only decent chance of an upset left for the two clubs we are chasing, Hull are in decent form, Cardiff look to be running out of steam. Should Cardiff fail to win not only would we still be in with a shot at 2nd on the final day ( assuming we beat Derby ) but for me far more importantly it would be potentially Cardiff instead of Fulham should we reach Wembley. If enough results went the right way this weekend the final day could leave the Bluenoses with quite the quandary......beat Fulham, stay up and help The Villa get promoted.

    John Terry

    If I were Bruce and thought Terry added something to the team I'd be pragmatic enough to let him sit out games against Chelsea, its not like we'll be in direct competition with them for a CL spot.
