Bit quiet now til end of May.
Who do we want to win and join us in the Premier League?
I'd say Derby because Villa will spend big and expect to finish well above the relegation zone but Derby will have an inexperienced manager and less cash.
I note that NCFC Twitter were making a point of thanking Villa and their fans for the way they looked after our club after winning the title.

Yeah agree with your point re Derby. Hard to pick between them for the final, Villa have a far better squad but have kind of limped their way to Wembley, Frank Lampard's Derby haven't been inspiring but will take great momentum from the result last night.

I have nothing against either set of fans, its only really the Leeds fans that have annoyed.

Couldn't care less really as long as it wasn't Dirty Leeds which it wasn't. Now hopefully they'll lose Bielsa and their best players and go back to being also-rans in the Chumps.:p

I assume Bielsa is out of contract as he has said in the press that he is "willing to listen to offers from Leeds to stay" which basically means he is willing to listen to offers from anywhere! Leeds would be mad to let him go, this season has been their best in a long time, and apart from us, they have played the most attractive football in the Championship. If they can keep him, and their team together, and maybe add a few players, I think they can do well next season.

According to wikipedia (not the most reliable source),he signed a two year contract last summer with the option of a third year, though I've said all along if they don't go straight up he'll be off

Tough to know who to support in the final from a Norwich points perspective.

On paper Villa look the better side, but who knows what players clubs will lend to Lampard next time around.

I can only really think that one possible upside to Villa going up is that we may be in for a shout getting Harry Wilson or Mason Mount on loan next season for our homegrown quota?

Then again, I'd quite like Tammy Abraham on loan and that could be a possibility if Villa fail to get promoted.

Ultimately whichever side goes up are going to be a big draw to the talented young players that I should imagine we'll be interested in borrowing for the homegrown quota..... Mount/Wilson/Abraham are right up there with the very best of them.
